Finally its uploaded, now as we have Astronauts I suppose I can Say for all of you "JuggieNauts" amongst us : Anyway I give you http://www.il2skins.com/?action=display&skinid=10690

"ChickenBones"
"... Next I spotted a Jerry at 2 o'clock high going into a wing over to make a frontal attack. I squared off on him for a straight head-on. We both opened up at extreme range and fired long bursts. We closed on each other fast and it was evident one of us would have to give way. I could see my bullets hitting him solidly. Finally at the very last second when it seemed we were both too stubborn to give, he pulled up over me and passed only five feet over my nose. All the time I could hear the sound of his cannon over my machine guns. After he once passed we didn't turn to observe what happened to him, but the crews of the bombers confirmed that he had baled out..." And so began the Combat record of Lt Eddy, Pilot of "ChickenBones"...

Coming soon P47D-27 Big Red *** Commander.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the comments,
The words are Lt Eddy's own... not mine http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I just added the last line, the read me file also includes his narration of his second kill to. The photographs have been provided by a friend of Lt Eddy's and Co Author of the Excellent book "Air War Italy 1944-45" by N. Beale, F. D'Amico and G.Valentini, Airlife Publ., UK 1996, Ferdinando D'Amico. It is the first of several P47 skins planned based on the pictures supplied from the pilots of these great aircraft and allows me to add more accurate markings on these planes than previously had been possible.

Nice work. Looks like a good reason to start flying the T-bolt again. Thanks for the attention to detail. It shows.

I would like to add some further historical 'depth' to the fantastic job made by Tony.

In order to do that, I'm pleased to enclose some of the original photographs of "Chickenbones", kindly loaned by my dear friend Charles C. Eddy.

In this way, the accuracy of the skin can be appreciated even more...

All the images were taken in Pisa Airfield on mid-April 1945.

Hope you've enjoyed the lot.

All the best

Ferdinando 'veltro' D'Amico
