  1. Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Merry Christmas! (The photo is my sister in law and her adopted Black daughter - who is now in college and over 6 ft tall ) Baruch Atah Adonai Eloheinu Melech Ha'olam, asher kidshanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu l'hadlik ner shel Hanukkah (blessing said as each candle is lit..."Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of all, who has kept us alive, sustained us, and brought us to this season"). And BTW... I'm a Buddhist, so Happy Bodhi Day!
  2. Does anyone have actual photos of Focke Wulf Fw 190 A-4 Flown by Oberleutnant Wolfgang Leonhardt, 6./JG 1, Woenstrecht/Holland, October 31 1942? While doing the new Fw190A-3 skins I became intrigued by this camo scheme and decided to do a historical skin. All that I can find so far is artwork and scale models. I'd like to have some photographic verification though. The stripes vary from crisp (unlikely) to airbrush (more likely) and differ in how they terminate at the nose. Would anyone want this scheme for their personal skin?
  3. Is this the correct TS? wingwalkers.teamspeak3.com Edited for privacy.
  4. I haven't either except for a couple of ventures into trying to make mud spatters look more 3D... still in process. I was thinking that maybe manipulating the "texture" (see the square between the rib bays, this is the normal map from the SPAD) might allow the illusion of the proper dope "sheen". Not sure if it needs to be more or less. I know that you love a challenge I'd love to hear your findings if you do give it a shot. I'll do the same but I'm deep into revising our skins and don't have much spare time.
  5. This is the link to Wing Walkers skins that they will be using for the memorial. Please download and install. https://www.wingwalkers.org/topic/7983-memorial-flight-honoring-tim-owens-wwicy/
  6. I have posted my condolences on the WW site and to Geezer regarding the extremely sad and untimely passing of ICY so I won't repeat here. I plan on attending for sure. I did post a link to our new Bf 109 skins per Geezer's request. I added a 109G2 skin for Butzzell so that he has something to wear. Hotlead and any other WW1 types that don't have WW2 skins, let me know and I can make a uniform for you if you want to attend. All who plan on attending please be sure to download and install the new Bf 109 skins here so that we can be properly dressed: https://www.dropbox.com/
  7. Understood but there is only one server isn't there?
  8. We'll have to wait and see what develops but if they do come out with FC2 before FIF spring I would think that it should be changed to FC (again, depending on what develops). Of course, it would ultimately be up to Butzz.

  11. One way to emulate the woven fabric might be to work with the normalmaps. However, as one who has done many real life dope and fabric jobs on full size aircraft, the weave usually isn't visible. That may have been different in early WW1 jobs with just minimum coats of clear nitrate dope but once you start using aluminum dope the weave gets filled. EDIT: (I should have read your post more closely... you are not talking about the fabric weave... still, I wonder if playing with the textures of the normalmap might have an additional illusion in regards to reflectivity and gloss.) As you
  12. Another one from the site https://www.youtube.com/user/PlayingForChange. Lots of great songs with musicians from around the world collaborating remotely.
  13. Should it perhaps be titled: Panzer und Schlagen?
  14. Jason_Williams Producer 24204 3908 posts Location:Las Vegas, NV USA Report post Posted 3 hours ago Guys, Ok we're releasing TC as Official this Friday the 20th. Sadly, I haven't had time to evaluate all these skins yet, but I will do so after the launch madness subsides and I can look at each one closer. Thank you
  15. WOW! That's awesome. You can tell that the makers are history buffs.
  16. I think there's a mistake on the Brandenburg... they don't carry bombs Central Scout (fighter) aircraft: Albatros D.Va - 8 scouts Fokker D.VII - 24 scouts Fokker Dr.I - 14 scouts Central Multipurpose aircraft: DFW C.V - 3 reconnaissance aircraft and 12 bombers Brandenburg W12 - 3 bombers, 2 arty aircraft and 2 spy aircraft
  17. No, I believe it's "troubles's" Alternatively... "mayhem's"
  18. My dad was a tank gunner and his tank was also "Shanty Irish"! I found a P51 that was also Shanty Irish but didn't have any luck with Mr. Maley. M5A1 “Shanty Irish” 12th Armored Division Rouffach, France, February 1945 1st Lt. Gilbert O’Brien, 357th FG, P-51B “Shanty Irish”
