Hi everyone!

I'm nearing the final stages of completion of my 15 mission Japanese Army AirForce campaign entitled 'The Setting Sun'. The campaign features the 59th Sentai and the Ki-61 and Ki-100 fighters.

I'm currently testing the missions and checking for accuracy and consistency. I'm also recording a few NTRK files to give the campaign a more cinematic feel to it.

In the meantime, I thought I'd show off a few screen shots and update with a few more later.

The skins have been provided by a number of people on this and other forums including R0NNC0, KRISTOF, BoNidle, Jesters Ink, Jadehawk, Aero Shodanjo, and more!

I hope to have this finished sometime in Februrary. We'll see if I can do it by then.

Looks fascinating! Is it based on the Kyushu map?

Yes...historically the 59th Sentai used the Ashiya airbase which is in the northern portion of Kyushu. So thats where you fly from.

Its as historically accurate as I can make it with the limited resources I have. I would call it semi-historically accurate as its not perfect day by day accuracy but it is generally right.

Yes...the skins add so much to the immersion! And they are such good skins on their own too!
