I have to acknowledge that my Template is a piece of crap. My fault for not testing it in greater detail. So, until I have that fixed, the default skin is it for now.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Oh, I know what this means. I need to make a single mission for it when it appears in the next BAT update. It'll be a pleasure. Keep up the good work.

Very nice! Launched it in a Norwegian QMB, and it promptly sunk a merchant with a perfect torpedo attack. Having lots of fun trying it out, only a couple bugs noticed so far: (1) nose gunner fires whenever the tail gunner does, and (2) when a Sea Hurricane blew it apart, some of the big pieces were invisibly held together as they fell out of the sky. No show stoppers certainly, but I thought you might like to know. Also, here's a quick and very dirty skin that is a little easier on the eyes (although still extremely inaccurate):

Thanks for all the work that went into this wonderful addition!

Hello Zflyer,
I'm not too good at writing posts :P, so Please do not take it as a criticism, I found it on the internet, I know that this data shows the armament of different types, for example mines is probably the C-3 version if I'm not mistaken,
I would like to ask if it is possible and if it does not conflict with your original concept, equip this aircraft with  LTF 6b torpedo (if available) and LMBII and LMA mines?
of course if Dreamk would agree to use armaments from his pack.
I would be grateful to consider my request.

Hello guys, the template is very basic and the colours might not suit some , however, I needed to check what aligned so made a few skins to show the worst areas following my rework of some parts, any imperfections are mine alone. ;)


I started this when Mike first released the aircraft but encountered a few issues, finally it is coming together:


(https://i.postimg.cc/jjj6TyZ3/Code-HE-115-Finland-framed.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/9Dvwtw3y)


I will develop the template further to complete the skin above but for now you have something to exercise your own artistic whims, I will leave further skin manufacture to others you will be happy to know. :D


Thanks to Mike for putting this in game. 8)


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Yes, there is no bombsight, bombardier, or gunner views. I will explain. I build mods basically as replacement for building plastic model aircraft. A little more
time consuming, way less expensive, and my grandchildren can't break 'em. But, mostly, I see my bomber/scout mods as nothing more than targets for the
fighter jocks to rack up their scores or eye candy to decorate airfields/screenies. Just my basic philosophy.

Best Regards

The skin is still WIP as I develop the template, however, there is the basic template included in Mike's download and the scheme is there but will need insignia and codes adding if someone wants to do you one, otherwise patience is your friend. ;)


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Hello guys, here is a link to my updated template and skins for the V2 of Mike's He115. ;)


Mediafire link:

https://www.mediafire.com/file/7co3c2wpcj8j7i1/Zflyer48_He-115_v2_template_and_skins_updated_18th_January_2019.7z/file

The earlier skins have now been updated to use my wear layers and the faded lines and come in blank, insignia only and coded versions:


He115 Finland:

(https://i.postimg.cc/N0kDp8Ld/2019-01-18-12-09-56.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/jWCyj7Hf)

The Luftwaffe coded version now has the swastika on the keel, I used a Revel/Matchbox version of the model
from my stash as a base for this scheme and it was not until a few days later I realised the swastika was
absent, obviously the model coming in the Revel boxing meant it was a from German company so those insignia
at the time were not allowed to be shown:

(https://i.postimg.cc/prpBWgCS/2019-01-18-12-10-49.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/wRYNF4S5)

Plain Green and Blue test scheme:

(https://i.postimg.cc/kGzvBfhg/2019-01-18-12-16-18.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/CnCq2Hg3)

I will not be doing any further updates to template or skins from here on, what you now have you will need to
develop further yourself for alternative schemes.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

An idea for a novel skin: some three ex-norwegian He-115's were used by the RAF in the Med, one actually shot down by the Luftwaffe!  8)

Interested skinners could take a look at this link:

It uses one of the existing German aircraft cockpits as is usual in our version of Il-2, this was
not built for the He-115, maybe one day someone will build something specific to type.

No rear gunner or Bombardier cockpits just the pilot. ;)
