P-36s & P-40s with new pilots
« on: April 06, 2017, 12:58:49 AM »

Poor P-40...so much neglected, even in IL-2...

I thought I should do something to improve the looks of the old 3D model with new pilots from wolfighter's 3D mesh and new default skins from RONNCO, Phil K, Buglord, Hayate, RDDK and someone else that I was not able to identify (that's why people you should always write your name in the skin). I apologize for every contributor that he may be not mentioned. Indeed, all the credit should go to the above mentioned people.

I chose to improve on the old model because

1) it's already available in BAT

2) it's more complete with the F/L/N versions

3) the 4.13 needs 3D treatment on its own!

4) MOST importart of all, I feel that something is touched in 4.13 FM. The planes tend to overheat very easy and the general impression is that the P-40 is porked. Some people cannot get over the fact that P-40s were very capable combat planes (in fact, if you read the 5th Fighter command aces report, the P-40N was at least equivalent of the Ki-61, if not better)

Welcome Max.

P-40s definitely deserve this spotlight. Can we do something more to improve the P-40? What do you think?

Thanks AK.  We have talked about this recently and I think you have amply demonstrated how the improcved P-40s can fit so well into B.A.T.  Thanks for more great work, lets get 'em into EP11 properly.   8)

Hi Fanatic, thanks for theTLC for the P-40. Only the Wolffighter pilot looks a bit undersised as 'all' of Wolffighters pilots do IMHO. Would it be possible to treat them as cdify did in
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,4603.msg493298.html#msg493298 ? That would be a huge improvment

Hello henkypenky, I tried in my installation to make them look as tall as possible and if you check in real P-40 photos their head stand on the same level as the real pilots. But they look extremely slender. I was not aware of this post, I see what I can do.

Thank you very much, FANATIC MODDER! I never get tired of any work that improves the Warhawk family of fighters.

This is one of my favourite fighters and your improve pack seems excellent!
May I install this pack on ModAct 5.30 with Anto's P-40 Pack v.1.1? or it's only for BAT?and what about install on UP?
Thanks in advance.

If you overwrite it should work without any problems, but just in case create first a backup. I 've made 'BAT' versions because I worked them on BAT. If you have any problems, please report back.
