Just wondering. Have been looking on il2skins and cannot see much that is quality and resembles the BOB spits

Hope these are out by the time I get the game (only up side to waiting, you guys do the skins and iron the bugs http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Spits in AEP are not the MkI Spits as used during the Battle of Britain but later variants.

After ages spent faking up all sorts of scenarios with skins on the aircraft we had in FB 1.22, I don't think I'd mind so much :>

Besides which it's nice to have cannon rounds to throw back up the arse of BF109Es :>

As far as I know, a few folks are making BoB Style markings for the Spit http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Were not some Spitfires tested in BoB with cannons? Had much cannon stoppages did they not?

If the MkV is used to represent the Mk I, II, there will be much whining about the uber Spitfire. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Indeed, fighting Bf 109 E's with the Spitfire Vb isn't much of a challenge.

Yep, they were Mk Ib's as use by 19 Squadron, but at the time they were crap http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I am working on some skins, but until Aces is released in the UK and i can finish them work is painfully slow, i have to send the skin to Canada, it is flown there by a good friend, Thanks Pil http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, then Pictures are returned to me and i adjust the skin accordingly, there will be several skins done have 4 versions on the go at the moment.A couple of them i have put below to show you. As you asked first Destraex, I will mark one up for you in what ever you desire. These are skins in hand so some parts will not be correct or finished ok...

Awesome looking skins

Send any finished ones to
norskafresh@cramthelan.com

Good stuff....

I don't mind too much about the historical accuracy anymore either. The wait has been too long for me. Just want to blast around until BOB comes out

and yes their were cannon armed varients in BOB

I heard that AEP Spits V are actually later, 42 version, so for sake of fair playground, Blue side should have Me109F,Fw190A4 (remember, it's actually "derated" east front version), might be some Me110G2...

Altitude, speed, manoeuvre and.... CRASH!

Hey Taylortony,

Nice skins. I immediately noticed, particularly in the second shot, that the exhaust ports have that bronze/brown hotmetal look to them . Is that your work or is that how the template comes anyway?
I've always wanted to get that effect on the Hurri to make the ports stand out a bit more prominently against the camouflage background but can't figure out how. Any tips?
