I was not able to solve the display problem, so I started from scratch making a completely new radiator mesh in Gmax and this time it displays fine:





And seen from the cockpit:

The details look very impressive. Congratulations, once again!
It goes along very nice with the rest of the details on this aircraft.

Thanks urmel!  :)

I noticed that the radiator placement wasn't 100% accurate  :-[, so I've moved the radiator to a more accurate placement.
A new version has been uploaded to my site now, and the first post has been updated with this information.

Albatros D.I: Update 3:

I've now made the corresponding edits as I did to the Albatros D.IIEarly:
Moved wire connections to their appropriate places and some minor mesh updates.

And a small Java edit, so the icon text is accurate AlbatrosDI instead of AlbatrosWD.

Original model:













Update 3:













I've uploaded the updated files to the IL-2 page on my site.

Albatros D.I: Update 4:

Some more updates to the Albatros D.I 3d model:
-The shape of the pilot cut out in the upper wing is more historically accurate now and has more natural rounded edges.
-Light issues on the upper wings has been corrected.
-Upper and lower wings and ailerons have been re-mapped to the default skin file, so they can be re-painted in the usual way. The default skin has been updated with appropriate wing textures. This means old skins are not compatible any longer! But I'll release som skin updates later on.
-The wires now look round instead of the old squarish cross section.
-Damaged wing with ribs showing, moved to the correct place.

Original model:

Hi max

Thanks  :).

Because of this update:

-Upper and lower wings and ailerons have been re-mapped to the default skin file, so they can be re-painted in the usual way. The default skin has been updated with appropriate wing textures. This means old skins are not compatible any longer!

Your beautiful Albatros DI skins need to be updated, is it possible for you to do that?

Best regards

All new skins ?   
It will be possible, but it will take a little time. I have done alot of Albatros skins, some
of which I have not posted. 
But this is ONLY for the Albatros D.I version, correct?  ... or do you mean the entire Albatros family?

If the other versions will have new fixes and need new skins, it can be done.   I still have all my PDF-books, information
for each aircraft skin and the original skin-templates.   It can be done but will take a few weeks.

I personally do not mind to upgrade and update all my skins to match and fit these models to look much better
with the correct details in their place, but I do not know if the other skin-artists will be up to it, 
to upgrade and re-paint their skins. There are hundreds of skins out there already posted.

This is no problem either, because on many occasions I have done the same skins as the other skinners
but have not posted my personal versions, just so there will not be too many of the same skins being posted around.
I can re-paint my versions once again and post them for everyone.
No problem.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

By the way, I forgot to mention,
that I am already re-doing my Late version Albatros aircraft skins so they can fit better into your upgraded
and NEW Radiators. The ones that are placed on the top wing, lower part. Your new 3-D version is much nicer looking
than my painted version on the skins. This is a nice upgrade for this aircraft.
But will there be any more changes on the Albatros D.V model which you might do in the future?

Hi max!

The changed mapping is on the Albatros DI and DIIEarly, and there is also a new DIIILate with centrally mounted wing radiator in the works.
To update the skins with the same wing textures as the default skin is easy to do, a simple cut and past job and I could do that myself.
But the wings were not always painted the same, so to get it accurate they should also be repainted and that needs skinning skill!  ;)
Please let me know if you want the UV map as a bmp for the changed mapping.

Next planned 3D updates are a new DIIIEarly version and the Oeffag D.III, both with centrally mounted wing radiator, no mapping changes on those though.

No more updates on the Albatros D.V planned for now.

Looking forward to some new skins from max the skinning master!   :)

Sounds great VonOben.
If you do have a new UV-mapping for the new changes, this would be very helpful to me.
Although, I have not noticed any radical changes on the new skins from your new fixes.
Perhaps I missed seeing something (?)
Send it to me by PM when you can.

At the present moment I am only using 3 Albatros versions in my personal game (4.10 DBW) , The D.I, D.III and the D.Va,
because the rest look very much the same and were built in very small numbers. The skins for the D.I should
fit nicely into the D.II, the other versions are  little diferent and need their unique skins.
The Oeffag´s are diferent machines and those need their own skin-template (skins), which I already have.

In good time, little by little, all will be fixed and looking good again.

Thank you for your fixes and contribution to making our dreams come true!
