@101tfs:

My apologies. I was a bit upset and my reply sounded rather harsh. No worries, verything's cool.

I'm quite sure @101tfs have some surprise in his sleave, may be some other Ju88 variants, so his aim was help with an already done mesh ;)

Sputnickshock, what about the Jumo213 air intake? to me they look too small and too near the engine, those air intake was somethnig very special, and I like this bird for those bits ;)

Getting the lighting sorted from FBS' old model 88 onto Cpt Farrels new model one, then to change the tail lines and line up the nose area

i'm quite shocked concerning the paint job wips by Gumpy and Phas3e :D not only i hadn't a single moment yesterday to look at the template, but now i don't even think i can make something as good as their works hehehe!

But of course this plane (is a real marvel, sputnikshock, thanks again!) really deserves the masters' touch!  :)

Yeah, I should have waited with my reply until I had cooled down a bit.  ;)
Anyway, concerning the intakes, I don't think they are too small when looking at these references.

Or: http://hsfeatures.com/features04/images/ju88g6ov_0.jpg, http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/27/Junkers_Ju_88G-6.jpg

However, I'd be happy to learn from better refs if they indeed are too tiny, and will adapt them accordingly.

@Gumpy and Phas3e:

You guys rock!!! Absolutely stunning already!!! :) :) :)

Btw, there will be an update coming later today. Improved canopy, small change to the angle of the tail-warning antenna, added D/F loop, and maybe larger air intakes.
But no worries, UVWs will remain the same.

NEW VERSION 1.1 AVAILABLE!
See first post please.

For those who have 1.0 there is also a patch available.

Changes:
- After reviewing again the two canopy variants we have I came to the conclusion that it was best to start over with it.
  So, new cleaned-up canopy model, along the lines of 101tfs' fix, but modelled to fit the G-6 fuselage.
- Smoother upper and lower curves on the tailfin now.
- Added D/F loop antenna.
- Fixed the angle of the tailwarning radar aerial. Proper ground clearance now.
- Many small fixes and revisions to the shadow model.
- Corrected the gun barrel protrusion in the weapons pod.
- Added tracers as a loadout option
- Defensive armament corrected to 500 rounds

Thanks to 101tfs and OberstDanjeje for pointing me towards many of these shortcomings.

Sorry sputnikshock, I don't want to be nasty, there's one thing left, you need to have manually enabled MW50 instead of WEP.

Nasty? C'mon! Let's make this as good as it gets.

I know you have a pretty profound knowledge about german piston engines.
I initially had referenced the Jumo 213A-1 + MW50 in the fm.
However, when testflying I had instant single-engine failures whenever I activated MW50. Couldn't find the problem and
therefore, as a workaround, switched to the Jumo 213A-1 1.7ata model. Which was not perfect, but worked.

I just rechecked with the MW50 variant, and found out that the engine failure occurs when applying MW50 when the engine is already running at 110%. If I apply MW50 at 100% engine power, and then increase to 110%, it seems to work fine (However, during initial testing I also had a couple of delayed failures as well, and didn't have time to recheck on those now).
Now if this is how it's supposed to be, well - pilot error - my mistake. If it's not, I'd be happy if someone could point me at the potential source of trouble here.

Thanks.

You can't apply MW50 with more then 99% power.
It's historical, every other plane with MW50 have this feature.

Ok, very good.
Then, stand by for version 1.2, with Jumo 213A-1 MW50.
I am sorry for the rapid succession of patches and updates.
