Title: Vultee VENGEANCE
Post by: CzechTexan on September 01, 2020, 05:51:29 PM
I'd like to request Vultee Vengeance skins for Gio's mod https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,41680.msg468669.html#msg468669. 
There are some skins available and the best, I think, are by Ont_R.  However IMO, the Tan/light brown color is too dark.  I hope that someone could make some skins that better match colors in photos. 

My primary request is for RAF in Burma.  There are some photos of a/c with codes but many a/c did not have codes.

Roundels
In Burma, SEAC blue/white roundels were first used in mid-1943.  Skins with these roundels will be most used.

I'd also like to have skins with (normal RAF) roundels used before mid-1943.

In my searching of the internet I have found some Vengeance photos and uploaded them in a folder:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/ohyzcn8myk1cj54/Vultee+VENGEANCE+photos.zip/file
(Included are some RAAF photos and some of "Dina Might.")

RAAF skins are a secondary request.
