PF has China as a nation, or is that a custom skin?

Thanks for the pics.

Are you kidding me, 3rd Squadron AVG is the default skin?! Who did the skin! It's gorgeous.

I have no idea how I will survive until the US release of PF. None at all.

I have the 1/18th scale 21st Century toys Flying Tiger P-40. i guess I'll have to make zooming motions with it while saying "NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOO OOOOOOMMMMMMMM!"
under my breath until I can get PF...

Oh, or do you mean the 1/18th scale model I have? Yes. Instrument panel is detailed a bit, and the pilot figure is fully articulated and removable. Just like the 1/18th P-47 razorback that i have too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I did the external skins for the new (early) P-40's and Hawk (above). I also did most of the default skins for the F4U and Corsairs in the final release (not the development shots). Although the Corsair I I've seen screens of isn't mine.

I did a ton of research for this plane. In fact, I think I can safely say that of all the P-40B/C versions that we're getting, I did close to 70% of the research. I think PlaneEater would agree with me here. I did a lot of research for PF. I can't wait to fly that Bad boy, and see it dive!

OK, what's the diff between:

Hawk-81A-2
P-40B
Tomahawk Mk.IIb

??? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

For me, they're all the same one plane with a different default skin...

P-40C and Tomahawk Mk.IIc are the same, too. But they have payloads, and I think also other gunsights.

I was under the impression that PlaneEater made it. Is this edie_w the same as PlaneEater?

Not a lot. I beleive some were intended for France, but when France fell, they went to the UK.
The Hawk 81A-2 was intended as an export variant, while the P-40B was a USAAC model. If I recall right, the H 81A-2s that were meant for France but went to England were Tomahawk MkIIs, but that may be wrong

I'm bumping this because I want to fly an H 81 so badly it's starting to be hard being around myself
