S! Everyone, normally, I wouldn't post skins here, but these make me happy, so here! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
This is a pack, in which there are 3 skins of two different aircraft, both of 354th Fighter group aces.

First, here's the DL link:
http://www.flying-legends.net/php/downloads/listings.ph..._number=8&cat_id=148 (http://www.flying-legends.net/php/downloads/listings.php?page_number=8&cat_id=148)

The first is P-51B Ding Hao! of James Howard. Howard flew with the AVG before going to Europe. In early '44 while flying with the 356th Fighter Squadron, 354th FG, Howard single handedly defended a formation of B-17s from attack by 30-40 Bf-109s. For this action, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of honor. He finished with 8.33 air to air victories, and a further 4 air to ground kills.

The next two are of P-51B Live Bait flown by Clayton Kelly Gross with 355th Fighter Squadron, 354th FG. Capt. Gross was one of the original 12 pilots to fly with the 355th, and flew throughout the remainder of the war, including D-Day. He scored 6 air to air victories in 105 missions. He also damaged 14 more, destroyed a large number of ground targets including 8 locomotives, shot down an Me 262 on 14 Jan 1945, and survived a bailout over enemy lines. First is pre-D-day, second is durring/after D-day, with invasion stripes and a larger mission tally.

There are 3 versions of each skin, full marked, US marked w/out codes or nose art, and unmarked. And, here are some pictures for you all to enjoy while they're downloading http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Also, look for more OD P-51s coming soon!

BlackDog,

That is awesome! I'm glad I could oblidge http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
I got interested in Mr. Gross when I found him on an Oregon fighter aces website. I'm from Oregon(been away for a couple years now, sadly), and it's sad that we rarely hear about their contributions in WWII.

Tell Clayton "Thank you" if you see him again! If possible, I'm planning on doing another P-51 he flew and maybe a P-47, if I can find the info I had on it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
