James


At this time I have been unable to find any other news regarding his passing.

Sad to hear, his aircraft skins were the best I've come across by far.

Very sad. Tom was one of the originals.

RIP. He and I were on polar opposites politically but he definitely had a passion for DCS and I used to visit lockonfiles quite often.

A pillar of the modding community. RIP!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Ugh.

I just started playing IL-2 Sturmovik again and have many of his skins in my inventory.
Shocked to read this.
RIP Tom. Your presence will be missed!

Yes his skins sure were.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Big loss may he RIP.
I do play IL2 BoX in VR and if seeing two of the same skins I always compare, to judge the skill of the skinner. In the case of BoX-VR, Tom was always the winner.
