View Full Version : Good aircraft names

Well, I'm thinking of doing some skinning (already had quite a bit of practice, I'm really enjoying it, especially with Jester Ink's templates), and myself and a couple of friends of mine got together to think up some good plane names, you know, like George Preddy's "Cripes a Mighty" or something like that.

So far we've come up with some good ones, and I decided to post here to get some more. No profanity, please.

Here's what we've got so far.

The Harmburger (excellent P-47 name)

Fahrvergnugen (applicable to most German aircraft)

The Policy-Changer (comes from a taunt line that I would use on most games, "I see no reason *BAM* to change my policy.")

Foo Fighter (named after one of my favorite bands)

Quacker (obvious reasons)

The Blender (to be or not to be is not the question, the question is, WILL IT BLEND?)

Please, take some time and write down a few of your favorites, it just might turn into a skin!

I'm also thinking of making a Peanuts skin pack, with the plane colors and patterns matching the shirts of different Peanuts characters, I could get a couple of those together in formation, and it would look awesome.

I see you are keeping busy.
Most here are only into historical skins, but not all.
Jesters Ink and I go back a few years, having flown in the same squadron together. It is good to hear his name still being mentioned here from time to time. He is a good man, and a great sense of humor and in my opinion the best skinner out there. He has a great talent and taught me many things about skinning.
Unfortunately he hasn't done anything pertaining to Il2 for quite some time.
He has moved on and is skinning for other games, off an on.

When I was road rallying there was an Ultra quick 1600 Kent engined Mk2 Escort with 2LitreEater on the back; always made me smile - usually as it was going past us.

I actually like that one a lot. I'd like to see a good graphic for that.
