Hi Gib

I've have just seen the screenshots of your latest work, the Ki-43 and notice the very dark cockpit interior. Nakajima applied a color named AOTAKE for the interior of it's fighters. I just pointed Oleg to the same thing as I 'have seen the 1st pics of the Ki-84 before the last patch was released and informed him about the wrong color, he turned then from the green to the actual and correct blue/green interior of the Ki-84. I wanted to inform U in case you're planning to do the cockpit, not to use the actual color as shown on your screenshots of the Ki-43.

I think Gib has just been doing the exteriors. If I remember correctly, he is doing the interior of the PBY, but no others.

Hey Gib, trust me, that "square gunsight" in the F4F-3 is an N2-A, not a MK-8. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I do plan on also doing the cockpit.

Thanks SC. Do you have any data/photo's or anything on the N2-A?

Unfortunately not. That pic is all I have.

That sight, though, was used in a modified form in P-40s and some early F4Us. They were alos used in P-35s.

BTW, I'm Buzzlightyear at that other forum where you post the question about the square sight.
