    S!

    We all are now having our oohs and aahs as well our teeth grinds on AEP. Let's pass that now and go to naother matter..the patch will come some day hopefully fixing things

    My question is this: Could we have an updated cockpit for Bf109? The FW190's, Ponies etc. have a nice lively cockpit + those new planes like Gladiator, I185 etc. look really great. Compared to them the Bf109 is plain ugly At the same time the annoying metal strips on the Erla Haube could be removed...

    Would it be possible for a 3rd party 3D artist to re-make it or is it just in Oleg & Co's hands?

    My humble wish would that the wind shields/hoods etc. could be clear on all planes since there seems to be a great debate which one had them and which not historically, some do some don't. In all fairness it would be nice if all the glasses would be clear, no-one could complain

    About the Erla Haube in G-6Late and onwards. It has gotten a lot better with less "pee yellow" tint on it, some still there but I can live with it. Now to these metallic strips Oleg has modelled. He has said he was in one G-6 that had them and now every single Bf109 with Erla Haube has them. Not very accurate IMHO. Many sources have claimed this type of cockpit hood being very rare. Why can't we have the strips removed? It wouldn't make the Bf109G-6Late et al better climbers or faster turners but give at least a bit better SA for the pilot.

    Ok, end of questions and wishing...A man must have some dreams

    C'mon..no-one interested? We get new fancy planes with VERY nice and detailed cockpits but the Bf109-series are like a bad cartoon soon compared to them + the metal strip issue hampering the view severely. Not asking for some frigging sharks with a laser in their forehead

    As a full time 109 jock, i wouldn`t mind at all if all 109`s will have same quality of pits like ... say 110? or Doras...

    I`m interested

    Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

    Thanx Ivan! The re-touch wouldn't need to be a complete re-making of the pit, but tidying it up with better looking gauges, some floor details etc. As now the floor of the Bf109 is only a black shadow compared to other planes..pipes and wires just end into this black mass

    I know the BoB will have a quantumleap better cockpits, but it is still quite far away and I think FB/AEP have a lot to offer even with BoB coming out. I would for sure volunteer with the Bf109 cockpit if needed, that plane is just toooo HOT to be ignored

    They can't re~mod Bf-109 cockpit unless they re~mod all other old cockpits too.

    Anyway, its better to spend time making new cockpits for Bf-109 B, C, and D. Need external model too though, but its better idea then remodding later Bf-109 which means they would have to remod MiG-3 cockpit too and all the older cockpits which are all good enough--or they would be AI only, a hideous thought when you think about it.
