Seriously, thank you very much Radge (and sorry Max, I guess the tanks skin is your work).

You're welcome ;)
But... All the work is gone by Molva and skins were painded by Murd0c ;) :D

So my thanks go to them also (and my apologies to Murd0c  ;))

Cool mod! Do these actually function as droptanks??  ;D

Also, that tank that they are filling in Bison's pic, is that a droptank? That would be a nice tank option for our spits. I don't think I've seen it in game.

here is a real one with barrels instead of metal tanks!


Also: from http://ghostgrey.gaetanmarie.com/articles/2010/Modification%20XXX/Modification%20XXX%20-%20Beer-carrying%20Spitfires.htm : in reference to carrying beer in clean fuel droptanks...
Code: [Select]
''every man on the squadron would be watching you upon arrival. Anyone who made a rough landing and dropped the tanks would be the most hated man on the squadron for an entire week.''
Did spits, or indeed other aircraft have a habit of jarring tanks loose on bad landings? I've seen a vid where a wildcat lands hard and a bomb is thrown clear, which bounces along the carrier deck before exploding. Figured it was a freak event.

Thanks for this pic with wooden barrels!
The answer for Your question probably is in article, You gave the link:

In Brazil would put it like this: If you drive do not drink, if you drink call me.

Had a BC at 1987 Ft. Bragg that would ask after daunting tasks what we'd like..., but the Brigade Commander (did'nt frown), just said he'd have to let the rest of the Assault Drop have what they wanted. Seems if beer was permitted that dancing girls were the next choice. Really good idea finding this bird. Thanks for the memories. :P. Not that we did'nt get our beer after the issue had died.  ;)
