Thanks Vigilante http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
You know that I'd love to do that!
My only problem is the lack of time.
On Sunday is the Greek Orthodox Easter and I'm having a week off,for now,but from next Tuesday I'm gonna swim in deep waters again.
Open a private topic with some "historical" gackround of the CSAAF to give me some inspiration http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

THose helments look great and the white one looks like a pix of pilot i have standing by his hellcat.I have one of your pilot skins http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif that i have worn out and it needs the seams resewn and the cloth is starting to tear and the front has coffee stains on it.so now i can get a new uniform and get the squad commander off my back.
i still fly in my coveralls thou most of time but now most of hosts in servers have downloads turned off and we dont get to see the other pilots or there planes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

awesome work!
How'd you get the skin on the Backseat Gunners?
I thought they used the default skin.
Those look fabulous though!

Thank you all for you kind words!

The SBD's assign the pilot's skin to the gunner as well it's an exception.I'm not sure about the Avengers.

Unfortunately the pad is remaining on pilots heads,officialy.
I had a word with Oleg who politely denied to make any changes even if the changes have already been made and been present in game (PF) but only for the Corsair series.It was only a matter of editing not making anything, but Oleg gave me the idea that he wants to drop back all the old stuff and concentrate on his new project:

OM:"In BoB we will try to use a bit different technology and and for each nation we plan to put diferent helmets (better to say basic models of pilots inside the plane and bailed out with animation)

Hope you understand why we use such things currently."

You can find some of my stuff, including a RAF 43-45 pack in Paul Lowengrin's site.Just click my sig and go to Downloads section http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

More great news..(BoB) that pilot's custom outfit (among other little things) will boost immersion insanely.

elephant - your pilot skins drastically improve the quality of this sim. Keep up th great work and let us know when the US pack will be available for sure.

In case you are unfamiliar with elephants work I recommend you go to the link in his post and d/l one or two of the RAF or Luftwaffe pilots there and drop them into your pilot folder.
