Most of these are probably in the game. Maybe some aren't, but it's a really nice page.

jake, a helpful link to anyone doing skins for the Alb. I wonder though every time I see these collections that have been brought together: have the original authors and artists of the work given their permission for the sharing of such? Their royalty checks are small enough as it is, and with the seemingly wholesale, unauthorized reprinting and sharing of their works on such platforms, they have been robbed of even those small checks. I know it has become the norm to do this and copyright law appears to be lost to the wind, but I'm still not a fan.

It was (is) not my intention for these to be skinned. I just wanted to share some of the wonderful skins German pilots used. Nothing more. I only mentioned some being in-game because we have all seen some of the skins flown by German AI pilots.

Jake, I was throwing no shade your way Sir, I was only giving a personal opinion about a situation that's been going on a long time now. Apologies if it sounded like I had any issue with you sharing the link with us, I do not. My comment about skinning reflects more my go-to when I see such excellent profiles available.

A quick look yields a few potential skins I never did... nice score.

Not all of them are historical though...
I see many speculative ones or based on older, now revised, info.
