Title: He-50
Post by: Fresco23 on June 22, 2016, 01:14:38 PM
   This is a visual MOD only. It is a simple hier edit, and skin.

   Inspiration was given by EHood, who requested a re-skin of the D1A1 as an He-50.
   You can see his request here:
   http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,48793.msg533829.html#msg533829

   I thought his request was a great idea, so I have looked into it, with the help of EHood.

   In this package you will find:

   1. A 3D edit for our existing Aichi-D1A light bomber. It will remove the cowl ring from the engine, better approximating the look of certain Luftwaffe Machines.
   2. A new skin by myself to represent an early Luftwaffe He-50, coded D-IMAA.

   Simply drop the contents of the FILE into your primary game location and overwrite as necessary.

   REQUIRED MODS:

   The Aichi-D1A MOD available at SAS, follow this link:

        I hope that you all may enjoy this small offering!

        Be assured, there will be a couple more skins at least. There is another Luftwaffe skin almost complete, pending I figure out a tiny issue or two.
        Afterward will follow a night bombing WW2 era skin!

        Enjoy!

Aloha!

Once again, many many thanks. Apart from the file name - it's the He 50, not He 51 - this is a beautiful job, and your effort is much appreciated.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hoping you received that Luftfahrt-Lexicon reproduction of the insignia manual.

With the very best wishes,

Erwin

You have given new life to the Aichi-D1A  8) That looks great.
It does look like that Heinkel.
Gongratulations!

Thanks guys! Glad you like it!

Sorry about the file name! Lol, I've been researching the He-51 today, so I guess I mistakenly typed out the wrong thing....  ;D

EDIT:

Link corrected in first post, File now named He50 as it should be!  ;D

A beautiful looking mod-many thanks for it. 
I get the new 3D bit to work fine, but darned if I can get your new skin to show up.
Couple of questions on this:
1) is this skin an RGB file??  Seems big.
2) when you say:
"Simply drop the contents of the FILE into your primary game location and overwrite as necessary",
do you mean "simply drop the folder into..." ??    -and which folder?
