Happy New Year all.

Just a quick update on the Pfalz remaster. Jerbear and I have completed the baseline (base Jasta) skins and are going to be working to get them submitted for inclusion in the near future. The model is fantastic and carries some much needed updates as well as new details. The skins are going through a complete renovation with close attention paid to many missing aspects, details and historic value that we simply did not have access to many moons ago.

So here is a brief sample of a few Jastas I worked with to give an idea of what this German workhorse will look like soon. For those unaware, the Pfalz is as it was stated in the movie "The Blue Max" an outdated, machine that did not match the newer Allied type aircraft. But what it did was fill in the gaps, gave many pilots a formidable if not reliable machine to fly, fight and learn in. It helped keep the units not fitted with Albatros types working and fighting until the OAW and Fokker built D.VII's began to show up in the war. It was not loved, nor was it hated. It was a Pfalz...

The new skins will carry a variety of German national markings is several styles as if painted at the field, and it will show some noticeable paint-over when they converted from Maltese style to Balken... again.. with little adherence to a standard style. So it was for the Pfalz.. the "#%&*$# child" of the Imperial German Air Force.

Best,

OvS

I couldn't help but notice you referred to it as "[/i]Pflaz" [i]instead of [/i]Pfalz."[i] it sounds like a modern tennager slang putdown - "Man, (or bro or bruh), you're such a flaz..."

the skins look nice, none the less.

Excellent stuff OVS.


They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Outstanding as always! Are you guys able to release base skins with layers for those who who to do custom liveries or is that not possible?

Either way, awesome!!

Well done OvS. It looks magnificent.

Especially like the Jasta 10 skin. Unusual to see the Pfalz in camouflage, usually portrayed in silver. Changes it's whole appearance.

Lol. Thank you everyone. We hope this drawsa few more Hun pilots to our ranks. The Pfalz is a beautiful plane to the eye. We hope you think so too.
