Hi all!

After a one month break ( a kind of "4 more weeks" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif), i decided to rework my first Ki-46 skinpack. Recently i found new documentation about this plane, and i may say that if my first skins doesn't look bad from far, panel lines anr rivits extacted from the void really looked ugly with a closer look.
More, some lines, and something like 20 hatches are missing in the original void.
Here is a brief summary of wgat i've worked on :

Happy new year,

I never knew they included that.
You learn something new

Yep, there are 2 versions in the game, the "Otsu" (Ki-46-III-Kai) with only the 20mm nose guns, and the "Otsu-Hei" (Ki-46-III-Kai-Otsu) with the Ho-204 37mm upper cannon.
More, IA use it well ingame, you can try it with the QMB, put some Ki-46-Otsu-Hei vs bombers, and you'll see the Ki-46 attacking from below.
another proof that Oleg's game is always full of good surprises!
