Hey guys, Ray aka "Rotton50" has given me another winning model to skin. This one is a Mosquito Fighter-bomber that is wearing the colors of Number 605 "County of Warwick squadron". The squadron flew day and night time Intruder missions from 1943 onwards. The base unit research was done by Peter M Booth (who is a valued asset when it comes to the RAF) and will be used to paint the 16 skins that will make up the finished multi-skin squadron.


Now, for the first time any where live and in person...Ray and my Mossie...... bottles







Oh yes, almost forgot, the Dutch City in the background is courtesy of Mr SagginB 512Dark terrain.

Stay Tuned for more views.

Hi Mike,

Was just wondering, like the Me110 you and Ray worked on,
could you possibly make the modding files (3dz) available,
separately from your usual 1.28e full squadron downloads.

I can't get 1.28e exe to work on my PC
but I could still use the new moddings for my 1.28 exe game.

Cheers mate pilot
David

Sure can Sky.

But you could also download the units and copy the first position skin into a new folder and use it as a single one, or, copy skins number 01-15 into another folder leaving the first skin (position 00)in the folder. Lastly, if you get the entire unit you can rename any of the skins bmp or 8-bit tpc files and copy them over the base skin (saving that one in a backup folder). That way you have your choice of planes.

The unit and any single skins are still a week or two away from release. Ray is going to fine tune the model and I stillhave to paint the distance texture and cockpit wing views.

Nice bird thumbsup
Congrats, Ray and Mike!
Do I see right - the air intakes at the engine are 3-D?

Yeah, the #%&*$# wouldn't leave me alone until I added 3d intakes. biggrin

Also, I just realized after viewing these pics that I need to add the antenna wires too.





BTW, we're finally getting to the point where we have all 30 original planes in hi-res. Only took, what, 13 years?

I think the 410 and the B26 are all that's left of the original lo-res models.

The 410 is in the workshop in a partially finished state and the B26 has been broken up into individual files but no mapping has been done.

Once I get a load of finished projects uploaded to Talley-ho I'll take a look at them.

Damn Yankee.... stirthepot

Ray, the 410 and nacelle problems, I've still got it as a work in progress in my paint files.

Fran, the intakes are coming nicely and the exhaust cover is painted. On yes, Ray did a nice job didn't he?

Hi Ray and Mike,

Worth the wait - looks good! As ever one minor point - the drop tank are completely the wrong shape.

Pete the pain.

Pete,

Those look like standard 1998 EAW drop tanks.

Iron Mike probably just ran an "instant mission" to get a couple of fast pics and the game assigned that loadout.

Happens to me all the time. Fortunately as a 3dz'er with superior mental abilities I REMEMBER TO DROP THE TANKS before taking the screen shot.

You know these artistic types. They spend their younger days trying out "unusual substances" and now 40 years later they're paying the price.

It was actually a brain cramp duh that caused the use of the stock tank in the jpg. I was just sooo amazed at the beauty of the model and skin that I was overcome with emotion and it the capture key a few times , from different angles etc. rolleyes
