P-47s / 365th FG
« on: May 29, 2016, 05:36:18 AM »

Good morning all...I was wondering if any of the talented skinners out there would be interested in doing some skins from the 365th FG(386th, 387th & 388th squadrons) that fought in the ETO from D-Day to the end of the war.  They moved a lot of mud- got into some A2A here and there- and were one of the Bodenplatte targets.  There are quite a few pictures on their website:

And a couple very interesting books: "Thunderbolts of the Hell Hawks" (Barnes, Crump and Sutherland) w/500 photos and 98 illustrations of the group's P-47s; and also "Hell Hawks" by Dorr & Jones (highly recommended).

It would be great to have a couple examples of their Thunderbolts available- maybe OD and NMF- I don't have any specific A/C in mind.  I also don't have any specific project waiting on skins- I just thought if a skinner was looking for ideas and had a quality template available that this might be an interesting project- as there are some resources available and I would love to see some of these birds 'come to life'!  No matter if anyone takes up the task- I just want to thank all the talented skinners out there for your time & efforts- they are truly appreciated by the rest of us in the community for certain!

A tremendous video- thanks for the link to Zeno's, vpmedia!  I hope that will help inspire someone!  So great to see color film of a busy fighter-bomber group in wartime.

Hi,
I’m very interested too... Hell hawks are my favorites. So for my return to IL2 sim playing, it would be so great to fly with my A2 jacket on  ;D
