Yep, that's right. 6 new skins. And quite a mixed bag they are too. The two La-5s were made as a request, as was Dortenmann's Anton (happy now, Hristos? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ) I made a winter G-6 because there aren't that many winter schemes for it, and a winter LaGG because I love the look of the fading whitewash. The Beau was a scheme that I had basically finished a few months back, but just needed a few finishing touches.

Comments welcome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Enjoy!

Explanation: P51s and some other planes got new default skins, it would be most welcome change for rest of old default textures to be changed to some new ones.

Ladspitter, you forgot CptFarrel, 1JavaServal and many other excellent artists.

cpt farrel is great too and another top skinner in my book, compans is excellent as well java is also very good too robo and many others.

NNavirex did a excellent quality job with the bf110 pit.

But as you said they did update and use his skins for the mustang p47 and ( p38 or snorri did ) which i dont find very good at all compaired to sootys aluminum work on the p47 p51, Im sure they will agree also even tho its thier own work. Im one of them who spent many many hours on aluminum and No one compairs to sooty in that dept no even hammered.

Anyways Heres to hoping in the future between patches we can get skin update patches which are only the highest quality.

on the Chkalov skin, the last two letters of Valerii look like Cyrillic N's (H) rather than the i and modified i that they should be i.e.

¸ '

Very nice work though.

Dear Canon hi!
I'm the Co of ZG52 and I know that you've made in the past a historic BF110 skin (for IL2) of ZG52. I was wondering whether you could share it with us and let us use it. I would really love it if you could send it to me by email (marked and un-marked version).
I thank you immensely for your time & effort
Best regards

Dont forget Cpt. Farrel...

PS: Canon, could I make a skin request? How about the Bf109G6 with black tulip that Hartmann flew quite a long time and that really made him famous/infamous among the russian fighter jocks? And maybe the K4 with red tulip on the nose that Hermann Graf flew in his last sorties.

Looks like this:

Nice work on the 46 lagg!

For another suggestion, the jg300 109g6 u4r6 red 6 night fighter as the corgi model in http://www.corgi.co.uk/CorgiSite/Aviation%20Archive/AA34901.htm
which has a very nice camo. There's also a Dekker profile in the 109 lair at http://109lair.hobbyvista.com/multimedia/wallpapers/td_rote6-800.jpg.
But as JG52Karaya-X suggested, some tulips would be very welcome too!
