Great plane!
Is cockpit historically correct, or taken from Spitfire?

I didn't work on the cockpits, only the template and skins. However from what i gather, all cockpits are temporary cockpits, not meant to be definitive nor accurate. I think DreamK's point of view was that it is better to have a flyable aircraft with a placeholder cockpit at first, and then to later wait/hope for a definitive cockpit that is more accurate.

This would be the same thinking as was implemented when all the old ai planes from 4.07/4.08 were made flyable in some of the first mods. Those planes too often used borrowed cockpits from planes that were not too dissimilar ...

And I am quite certain that if anyone who has more experience making cockpits wants to try his hand, DreamK will be tickled pink and grateful.

Cockpit is a modified Spit1 cockpit - bitmaps coloration modified, new windshield, new gunsight, editing of 2 bitmap gauges to suppress the retracting landing gear - not an extensive historical cockpit but the kind of things I can do routinely - and yes, all help from cockpit modders would be a blessing!

What? The Fury?  :o ??? :o ??? ???
You've superated yourself this time DreamK, I didn't see this one coming, I was expecting another Frenchie. You didn't even pronounce a word when the Brit version was requested.  :P
BTW, Rock, don't give it up, as Dreamk says: two pretty different planes (many more differences than between any pair of the gazillion  bf-109 versions...just jocking) 8)
Then, what can we do now but loose more valuable sleep hours? but WT...k
As Hidalgo de Cisneros would say: ¡Que salga el caza!  ;D

Well after we finished with the French fighters, we needed to deal with the remaining ones, isn't it. Two more planes are still to come - including, tomorrow, my personnally most preferred one!

I've come across a few images of Hawker Fury's with different cowlings:







are these essentially the same as the Fury without cowling, the streamlined looking version?

Fury is beautiful with radial engine too, but I prefer her Spanish pointy nose and skinny legs.  :P
BTW, I just tried her and  ;D ;D ;D ;D
No wonders why they lasted so long in service and survived so many fights. A real pleasure. And talking about pleasures:

No-o-o-o-o  ??? Is the first letter a C? OK better don't tell me. ;)

A C? All I can think of in a SCW situation is a Caudron of one type or another ... and those would be so unexpectedly obscure ...
