Has anybody ever thought about getting a t-shirt made to support IL-2 FB for differant type aircraft or just a generalized IL-2 t-shirt. Does anyone have connections with a t-shirt manufacturer or something like that. I'm sure the support for such a project would be big considering the following for this sim.

Y'know, I had a squadmate in the T-shirt business as a matter of fact. Last I knew, he had designed a T with an action shot of a P-38 vs. Bf-109G? it was fantastic! Pic on back and squad logo/callsign on the front upper left.

I wonder what he's doing now??

Must find out.

As I recall, the Russian version of the original FB could be ordered with a T-shirt as well. (saw a picture I think)

Nonetheless, Here's a link that could get you started: http://www.cafeshops.com/100thafw

I would first get permission to use the logo from UBI/Mr. Oleg... After that...check out http://www.cafepress.com They make the shirts/mugs/etc and you can add a charge to make profit from their already low prices.

Check out examples from our online store... Upload your graphics and away you go... http://www.cafepress.com/txsquadron

How about hats? I had some made for the bombs-away.net website last year. {Posted in the Main Forum at BA} They can be expensive to make and sell tho. Digitization alone can cost 50 to 150 dollars, so this can be rather expensive all by it's self. If you can find an independent that embroiders with his own machines it can be cost effective tho. Plus cost of boxes and shipping that need to be included in the final cost to the public.

You do need to make sure you have firm orders and they don't back out on you before you have any made. Or look at it as you'll never run out of hats for yourself. Or even T-shirts. LOL

Just another idea for yas. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Nice thong Rahman! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

but I've spent so much time trying to get TX off my a$$, I certainly don't want to put them back on it! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Our squad has thought about doing the same thing. It's kinda cool and is a great way to spread the FB gospel. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

GT182: Check out the links I posted above...that is the beauty of cafepress...they do 1 offs, 2 off's etc... Hats and all.. No charge for digitizing the graphics and all...straight pricing. The TX gear is all at the base price....we're not making anything off of the stuff we sell. I didn't wanna have to deal with the taxes and all...tax ID number etc... This link is our online store: http://www.cafepress.com/txsquadron

Thunderbolt: LOL man!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif We haven't been flooded with orders but have sold some stuff. I put this up more for our members than anyone else...although...anyone can purchase gear from it. Never tried to get permission to use the IL2 logo...may pursue that in the future http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I have had my money in hand for a tee shirt for years. I have put a couple of posts on this forum for interst in an official tee. Never has been done to my knowledge. Some people don't want to be rich, I guess.

rahmanoodle, thanks, I'll check into it soon. I have a friend here where I live that does the hats. I don't make anything as it goes to the Administator of our website to keep it running. That is, when I get my initial investment back. Here's the link to the hats we have, go to the bottom of the page..... http://www.bombs-away.net/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6057&perpage=25&pagenumber=2

bhunter2112, we don't do it to get rich. We do it for the love of what we enjoy and to share with everyone else that loves the same thing we do. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yep - a great idea...

Hanes 100% cotton with a pocket for my
Ray-ban aviators please.

Make 'em in all colors with various aircraft
and the fb logo or Maddox logo or both..

Often I wonder when walking thru a crowded mall
"do you FB?"

GT182: Nice hats indeed! Are those logos sewed in? I think the cafepress hats are more like an iron on...not sewed in.. If they are sewed...how much do they cost and how big of an order you have to place?

altstiff: You could always get the boxers....unless you're a crossdresser. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/34.gif

You are correct sir. I saw the picture also. It was a brown shirt with the IL-2 logo on it, like the one on the original games start-up splash screen. It was a deluxe version of the game and cost a (russian) fortune. I looked and looked on e-bay and it's clones but never found one. I would give my right arm for one.
(Fortunately for me I'm left handed)

My ageing memory may be failing me again - but weren't there Il2 Ubi T shirts around at the time of the original games release. I'm fairly sure Ubi offered them as prizes at one time.

I would happily buy a Il2 FB AEP type T shirt to spread the word. It's surprising how many men there are of a certain age, who would love to get into combat sim flying, but who are unaware of what's available. I have converted a few acquaintances.

I know that there was supposed to be shirts back when they held the IL2 Community awards.... I don't think UBI ever rewarded the winners of the awards with anything. Our TX-Kingsnake won best video of the year from IL2 footage....I'm pretty sure he received nil.

Again...I would gladly create the shirts if permission were given....would donate all proceeds to a charity also. I just want to spread the gospel....

There actually is an official IL-2:FB tshirt.

It's blue with a nice logo and a plane and everything.

I won mine during the movie contest they held a looonnnggg time ago.

The wife doesn't understand why I growl every time I see her wearing it.
