No other takers, so it's the radio mast. Before 1.19 the Spit had the 3rd type of mast, a simple spike, but this should have had an internal aerial not external wires; it was used with the later TR1133 VHF radio, not the more common TR9D HF set. So it now has the 2nd version mast, suitable for that radio and more representative for the Battle, with a little triangular prong added to the top rear, and the antenna lead-in has been moved closer to the rear of the mast.
WotR was already correct in leaving out wires from fuselage roundel to tailplane tips, as this was for the radar-based IFF system (not the Pipsqueak DF one) that only started appearing late in the Battle.
Ok how about the Heinkel? There are two improvements here:
*lol* Yeah, not much way I was ever going to get that right. You've probably already forgotten more than I will ever know about that kind of detail on these planes. Your period knowledge is most impressive...but if I'm being honest, I'd never have noticed and I bet most people wouldn't either
If fixes are to be made, I'd strongly prefer a whole bunch of wrong aerials and gas patches, in order that attention could be paid to the sim's performance. And I bet I'm not alone on that, either.
Still, always nice to see your write-ups. Caused me to spend $ on more than one game, for sure
OK [drum roll] it's 'spot the Beta 1.19 improvement' time.
First up, who can identify what's been improved with the Spitfire I?
I hate to be critical but I've noticed a few more things which aren't correct. The Spit has the later Mk. IX elevators which were introduced on the production line in 1943 (the double-angled mass balance weight, Mk. I-V all had the earlier 45 degree balance weight:
The decals on the upper wings are also too small, and the wrong colours. But otherwise, the model is perfect.
Nice pics Trooper & 33lima. 33lima if you keep buzzing the field like that the CO is going to have you peeling spuds to make chips for all the boys in the mess hall! Well 33 lima, scratch camo hangars off the to do list. Nice work Pol, you snuck that one in and they look real good to Sir.
