Many thanks

I'm confused...

You can put anything on a skin. Anything at all. In-game, nose art is not an option like in CFS3 for example, you must choose a skin with the nose art you want. Or the fue****e paint scheme, or whatever

In real life, USN and USMC aircraft hardly ever had personal livery or nose art. There were some exceptions.

The feeling is that every US plane had nose art. The truth is that it's not quite true

In pf is an option that u can select from menu for ai planes nose art. Thats what the gent is saying

Its a seperate and new feature. Before you would have to use the regiments function to do this. Now its completely seperate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Take the B25 on a multiplay map, go to the arming scree and the nose art selection list is right at the bottom

Wow, I hadn't heard of that option.

If PF is installed over FB, do FB a/c have this option?

Only a few. P25, B20 and P40 I noticed so far.

Pretty much all the US aircraft do, apart from the hawks i think, or have seen so far

Hoping the skinners will come up with the geometric white on blue tail markings that identified the various CAGs from mid 1944 on. Poster is right--most USN planes had only plane numbers and tail codes. A few squadron crests, and even fewer painted ladies.

When I checked PF demo...I noticed A-20 and B-25 only planes can change nose art. Maybe add few more in release full PF as I am still wait for it. I bet that il2skin.com will have to create new section for nose art for up/download. Cool!

wow, those triplets in the mitchell sure are happy

guess they didnt go through what most pilots did.....drunk the night before, an early rise to operate a bomber loaded with bombs and aviation fuel hundreds of miles away through enemy fighters and AAA.....plus the real possibility of getting lost, to or from tgt, assuming the weather stayed good enough throughout the mission

Big B has a modern look to her... but she's quite fetching.
