Are you still working on this one mate? Such a favorite water kite of mine. BTW, what's your website? I'd like to see what you've been up to! Thanks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sorry for the lack of updates. Its still very much "in progress" and I recently showed Oleg some pics of the work and he is very much interested in it. I have been VERY busy with things in my life. I just completed another aircraft for PF that should be released in a patch soon and I will start working on the Catalina again soon. Jeronimo, the artist for the Spitfire, P-38 and IAR-80 cockpits has also agreed to help me finish her off!

As for my web page, its down till I find some time to re-make it. The host died, nuking everything I had on it and I just have not found the time to re-do it. Its low on my priority list ATM. Keep an eye on www.netwings.org (http://www.netwings.org) in the development forum for screenshots.

Do we get a hint? Your airplanes are by far my favorite additions to the game. The YP80 and the Ki43 are awesome.

PS I know you did others, these two are just my favorite.

Sorry. NDA. But it will be flyable! Here is a small hint. Its a rare aircraft that not many people know about. US built but not flown in combat by the US.

Republic P-43 Lancer?

"The USAAF always viewed the P-43 as only an interim type and considered it unfit for any combat role. None of the USAAF P-43s ever saw any action, being used strictly for advanced training in Stateside units."

"108 of which were Lend-Leased to China as part of the "Special Air Unit" that Roosevelt authorized in the winter of 1940-1941. Originally intended to equip the 3rd American Volunteer Group, the planes were instead transferred directly to the Chinese Air Force."

"At least 51 did make it to China, and some served with Claire Chennault's American Volunteer Group, the "Flying Tigers", but the turbo-supercharger and the self-sealing tanks were unreliable and the type was not used much."

I know Gibbage can't say what it is and I don't expect an answer. I'm just having fun naming airplanes.

I think it will be a lot of fun. It was my first "cr@p plane" yet! Lol. Everything else but the PBY that I built was rather Uber. But I think it will be a plesant suprise to many of you. Enjoy!

Ow, the Ki-43 I think was my first in the same class. Well its not uber at least.

For you guys.

I give my bet on the F7F Tigercat.

EDIT... it's not a cr@p plane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Then it could be a CW-21...

Im think it is the CW-21...

But another plane that is not that common and was built by the US and not used by them was the Martin Baltimore, but that was not ****, infact it was very good at what it did, hence useful

Can only hope.

Catalina would be a very nice PF addition, first of all for the recon missions in the online competitions.

Nice work!
