I am not sure that I expressed it understandable: I mean re-terxturing by more talented guys who presented here the pictures, not my work. As you know I am fully engaged in Poland map now.
Excuse my bad English leading to misunderstanding, please.

Basically, what I'm trying to do, is to break the monotony of the landscape - no easy task as most textures cover urban areas.
I changed the previous color of individual trees to merge them better with 3D forests.

Meanwhile, I did a little research on Luftwaffe operations over Estonia. Arguably the most famous scrap in this area was the one involving the young Lt. Walter Nowotny, who at that time served with the 1.(Erg)/JG 54. On 19th July 1941 he claimed his first victories (of the total 258), shooting down two I-153s over Ösel Island, but moments later he was himself shot down in his Bf 109 E-7 (reportedly by a Yak-1) over Riga Bay. After three days and nights at sea in a rubber dinghy, he finally reached the shore.
In August and September 1941, while German ground troops pressed on towards Leningrad, the Luftwaffe was still heavily engaged over Estonia, mainly because of the Soviet Baltic Fleet moored in and around Tallinn. On 6th August “Karl Marx” destroyer was hit in Hara Bay near Loksa by Ju 88s of KGr 806, and sank two days later. Tallinn was cut off on 17th August, and two days later the final German assault began.
Apparently several Luftwaffe units, including Bf 109Fs of III./JG 54s, and Bf 110s of I. and II./ZG 26, assisted in this onslaught – the 110s raided the airbase at Tallinn on several occasions. The city and its port were captured on 28th August. The disastrous Soviet evacuation is quite a story:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_evacuation_of_Tallinn

As the tide turned, the air war again flared up over Estonia in August/September 1944. By that time it was a Focke-Wulf country. As many as eight Fw 190 Gruppen were stationed in the area: two fighter outfits (I. and II./JG 54), and six Jabo units (II. and III./SG 3, I., II. and III./SG 4, I./SG 5), as well as Ju 87 tank busters of 10.(Pz)/SG 3.

Hi mate and thanks for your interest. Actually I made some progress, but to get the desired effect I would have to re-texture large parts of this map by hand, tile after tile, as I did with the Africa/Italy/Greece map. Since I had to limit my gaming time because of some  health problems, I'm afraid I won't finish any time soon.
