That plane took longer to get here than Colombus.

I want Hughes' flying boat with "Take Off without blowing up" mission.

Yeah sure, with so many planes around, you want a 3d guy to spend all his efforts and time in a silly gigantic floatplane that barely flew once and which was an entirely obsolete concept when completed (1947)?

If there is such a modeller in the audience, please ignore this crap and build us a Lancaster.... pu-leeeeze :)


or... if you insist on a floatplane...  Kawanishi H6K is my love (request already up http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=25512.0) :)


I'm sorry for posting crap and being an idiot, and generally wasting TCP/IP packets by filling them with crap. Post removed. That was partially a joke but if I offended anyone than sorry. I know this forum is private property and if I get banned I won't object.

You didn't offend anyone, Mati.

Now, a bit of patience and tolerance from everybody to each others will make things easier.

Peace....

Cheers

Ok, Folk.

I'm leaving for the country house for few days. Will be back on Monday 10th.

A1_Phoenix is in charge of this thread during my absence.

It would be nice to have a list of aircraft that are already in IL-2, and for what "hack" they can be used. This would be a great help to skinners...

Keep 'em coming!

Cheers!

Yes, tensions have been running high around here of late. People are a bit bitchy due to an influx of newer members who haven't yet learned all the social rules here. Some of it is unfounded and some of it is due to older member's toes getting stepped on. Just don't worry about it much, they'll calm down sooner or later. Just pay attention to the guys with SAS~ in the beginning of their names. They're generally patient, but don't test that. Just listen to them and follow the rules and you will be good. If you get yelled at by anyone else for making a suggestion or asking a question, or some similair offense where you don't mean to be intrusive, don't take it to heart. I think you'll like it here.

Welcome back mosquito feeder  ;D I hope they didn´t bite you too much
Here´s something for you to enjoy and dream about...



This is the sort of movies they used to show in passenger airplanes back in... 1928!  8)


Fly American! 1933

At 7:50 minutes into the film you get to see the "luxurious interior seating"  ;D


This is a complete surprise for me. I never seen this one before. A Bleriot 125 ...and it flies!  ???

Max, thanks or jogging my memory. I remember seeing that aircraft while researching one very similar which I had forgotten about until now.

The Savoia-Marchetti S.55!

I honestly I don't know how I forgot her. Very important aircraft. If this hasn't already been made somewhere, I'll have lost all faith in humanity.

Correct, a Savoia-Marchetti 55 was created just a few weeks ago and posted here at SAS made by Gio.
Veery coool classic aircraft! with an amazing design right out of a Buck Rogers movie of the 1930´s era.
 +PLUS+ in this new mod-version it is "well armed", so that is an extra bonus!
Any rival Airline Company trying to shoot down our passenger airplane will know that out aircraft are
armed and ready to defend themselves! LOL  ;D 
It´s the battle to control the passenger fleets of the skies!!  8) 
Their motto is... "We will fly you anywhere in the world in complete safety, and shoot a few ducks on
the way for your lunch!! "
