Thanks to Netwings.org, IL2's modelers now has a new home!!! We are working very hard to help replace IL2 Center.

First, I would like to thank Luthier for all he has done for this comunity. Not only the modelers, but everyone who enjoys this game owes Luthier a big debt. He is the one responsable for not only the Bi-1, but the I-16 and I-153 just to name a few. Unfortunatly life has called him away, and IL2 Center has fallen into dis-repair.

Neil from Netwings.org has generously given us a new home. Currently we have only forums, but soon we will have more. Please, everyone here send him a big "THANK YOU" for his help in giving us modelers a home.

You can visit the new forums here at

http://www.netwings.org/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboard.cgi?az=list&forum=DCForumID43&conf=DCConfID1

Keep an eye on the forum. Once the modelers move in, you will see a lot of updates commin in.

Thanks for the info Gib.

The IL-2Center will be sadly missed as will Luthier...I'm sure every one here will wish him only the very best for the future.

I will miss IL-2 Center, but hey: sh** happens. Luthier did a lot to the community and to the game itself - his effort will not be forgotten. I hope to see him again on the forums.

Now - onto the new forum! All speed ahead!

I liked netwings when it was dogfighter.net and had alot of updates on bruno dufforts and paul rebuffats models. Along with many of the other great freeware modelers who did better quality aircraft then Aeroplane heaven, simflight, flight1 etc, they got too payware orientated posting mostly payware reviews of 1 plane addons for a price more then cfs2 ms2002 used or cfs3 and many are anti il2fb there.

Ubi should add a modelers forum section, and take all il2centers tutorials and add a section of information on t he front page left nav.

Im glad neil setup a place for the il2 modelers tho

Best of luck to Luthier. Sad to see IL-2 Center die. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
I had offerd to host a forum for the modelers well over a week ago and aleady have one set up. If it becomes a case ase you say Leadspitter i want these guys to know that they always have another option if they need it. It' an open ended invataition. ( that cfs crowd are very anti IL-2)

So far we have had a very warm welcome. I have not seen any negitive posts about hosting the modelers. I also was trying to put up a forum on my web page, but I think this will be best.

WHO THE HELL WOULD WANT TO POST NEGATIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHOO HOOOOO we get to see a forum for moddelers again !!!

Luthier must have had some serious stuff come up in his life , Glad now that there is going to be another stable place for moddelers to post again

getting to see updates is cool & when guys doing 3D models get feedback & support , it must help motavate their efforts ! ! !

Thank You Gibbage for the effort
