Hi all,

I was experimenting with the new RN lettering options for the new version of IL2-MAT Manager and discovered some beautifull Seafire skins complete with roundels but no lettering on www.flying-legends.net (http://www.flying-legends.net)

I tweaked the postioning of the new lettering to fit the position of the fusilage roundels and here's the results :

So the by turning off the game type RN roundels and selecting the appropriate lettering option you will be able to select either style/postion of lettering to match one of these skins as well as an option to select lettering positioned around the game type RN roundel if desired.

I've done my best with th position of the red "7" squadron code but it is impossible to position it closer to the roundel. If there were two MAT files for left and right then that would be an entirely different matter http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Cheers and regards

PS. I have lightened both these screenshots to better display the serial numbering.
