Sorry if this has already been posted (have tried to search for it)

I'm sure I read a little while ago that the 4.08 update would include new default skins for most of the old aircraft. This seems like a great idea - some of the default skins for old aircraft such as the 109 E4 are pretty poor by comparison to more recent efforts, and a simple issuing of new skins would spruce the sim up a bit!

However I've checked the patch and though it seems to contain additional skins for some aircraft the crappy old default skins seem to be exactly the same.

Does anyone elso know what the story is here or am I barking up the wrong tree (again!) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

Some of them are different than I remember them.

I-16 for example, has a really nice skin now. As opposed to the old neon green.

Ah great! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif So at least some were updated!
Does anyone know (or suspect) which ones - other than the I16? Would be nice to figure out.

Well, Spurinna, the idus of March are here, and nothing has happened.

I mean, the guys in that thread posted like it was imminent for the upcoming patch. The patch is here and no defaults.

4.09? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
