  1. more news mmmmmm Dear friends, So, here is the new year 2021! Like anyone else, we're going to hope that it will be better than the previous one. However, for IL-2 Great Battles, the last year was quite positive in spite of all complications. We hope that we'll build on this success this year - the plans are quite extensive. Let's start with the first in-game shots of the British fighter Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib which is being developed for the Battle of Normandy. As you can see, it looks nearly complete, but in fact, there is still a lot to do - a hefty chunk of work is

  2. The "Project" Revel F4U-4 in 1:48 It's been sitting on my shelf for at least 10 years before I got around to it. So much easier to do larger pilot figures. My messy workstation, I liked the cheapo airbrush so much I went out and got a decent gravity fed one from paasche. Also did tests on spoons to get the color right. I think it turned out well. Kit had a gimmick, where the wings and gear were hinged. Great idea 'in theory' Wing joints broke, and the gear don't sit quite right. (Gear does twist and fold like the rea

  4. Seems Bert might have had a lucky escape there on Tuesday evening after experiencing a structural failure of the left wing seconds after take-off which resulted in the aircraft rolling inverted before hitting the ground very hard still upside-down and spreading itself over a wide area. Worth noting that I accidentally clipped a building with the wingtip while taxiing but decided to proceed with the take-off as there was no visible damage - this was obviously a major error of judgement with nearly fatal quinsequonces. If anyone else suffers a similar mishap, I would recommend scrubbing that sor

  10. As of last weekend, our GBS Server is running two different 'missions' 24/7. One rotating the set of 5 DF a/c oriented missions (90min rotation), the other running the 'Tankcrew Summer' mission, created/tuned by dd_Friar, with options to battle in open field and in towns, or to practice at a gun range. It will restart itself after 6 hours of running. Yeah, bad luck if/when you kill all possible targets on the map in the first half hour - you better go fly for five and a half hours. Note: The TankCrew mission will not be running whilst we are doing the regular Sunday/Tuesday Coops, th

  14. Hi Nick. Good work. The 402nd emblem is an early one from their days training on the P-47 in the USA (hence the 4 bladed prop); the 370th FG as a whole did their entire training on the Jug. Sufficed to say they got one hell of a surprise when they finally settled at Andover in the UK and found out they were getting P-38s! In light of this conversion, the squadron emblem was redesigned to better reflect the squadrons association with the P-38. I have only one image of the amended 402nd badge - it was, as were all the 370th FG insignia, unofficial (not approved by USAAF high comm

  16. Salute, I thought that some of you may want to download the two dog fight maps I have produced in case you either wanted to play with them on your own, or host them on your own server. Features Summer Version 1. Town Skirmish: There are 3 towns on the map, each with a red and blue start at either end of the town with a flag located roughly in the middle to act as an area of interest to focus the action, if you wish. AI Status: NO AI 2. Battlefield: Start on open ground and head towards the enemy spawn point. Once you have spawned in you will have 8 enemy tanks set

The following are IMHO More enemy in multi waves that may be force a withdraw and the need to resupply ammo and repair Perhaps like the P-38's players could have character names which may encourage life longevity If the enemy are there on the map but dormant until triggered could the trigger points not be a large circle around the enemy 2-3 km for static locations 5 km for rolling enemies and 10 km for airborne enemies Well hidden enemy awaiting in ambush (top camouflage) The

  26. Its not so bad, as the kits are simple. But I have a magnifying lamp if I need it but it just makes my eyes cross. Here's my current setup. I've since organized a bit. Note the 69' Fastback in assembly. I started that kit in 2001. (Hated the look of testors enamel so shelved it. Its back on with acrylics.) These little buggers were hard to see. Yes they are bog standard army men. (were) Mostly to try out some paint and brush techniques. Getting a little wild. Dollar store toys are cheap practice. Close up on the Mustang.

  27. So you found a nice third party skin for your favourite DCS ride and you've downloaded it. Q1. Where should it go? You have two options: 1. The Saved Games folder A dedicated Liveries folder within Saved Games DCS folder is the place recommended by ED for Third Party Skins = C:\Users\"yourusername"\Saved Games\DCS*\Liveries\"modulename" (* or DCS.openbeta) It keeps the core game folder structure and the files within, sterile. Should you need ever to run a repair on your DCS install, it will flag ANY third party skin content as potentially worthy of removal and if you w

  29. Bit of a challenge for you chaps This is a piccie of the cockpit and occupants of my current project.....very much a work in progress as all 3 figures need extensive working to get them in and filler but it's a start. Can anyone guess the aircraft type I'm building, name the real occupants represented by the plastic figures and the situation that put the real people together in the cockpit? For fun obviously as I can't offer beer as a prize very easily..... Cheerzen

  31. Corporal Snafu and Technical Sergeant Fubar seem to have tamed the Gremlins in 'Maybe, Baby?!' as the aircraft performed flawlessly. White Flight formed high astern of Red flight enroute to target, but slowly overtook. Crossing the line, bandits were spotted swinging into our rear section and Red flight engaged. White continued on to target. I followed Capt. Cloister on his run on target. White 2 had a go and then I was cleared for a bomb strike myself, destroying the remaining locomotive. We searched the town for more targets, but finding none, befo

  41. I believe I have got to the bottom of the issue with the campaign not progressing; the edits I had made to allow for Reggie's kill on the mission of the 16/11/44 seem to be the issue, as removing all of those references allowed me to roll the mission forward to the 18th on my private test server. This means that - in PWCG at least - that this kill is unrecorded. However I will be leaving it in the 485th scoreboard for obvious reasons. To avoid any further issues, could we please avoid jumping in as spectators to gunner positions - it was raised as a potential cause and I have not ye

  44. Hey Marc, access to the BDSM forum requires a minimum of two verifiable “shock horror scoop” stories featuring either you or a “version” of you being printed in one of our fine tabloid rags between 2010 and now. Doesn’t have to be front page but no less than a 200 word column is needed. Something to aspire to ? Still want to be a Dog ? 😂🤣😂😳
