I decided to use a Goering skin to fly with on a Bf-109 and noticed once I was in the cockpit that there was no ashtray.

It is a well documented fact that Goering enjoyed smoking cigars while he flew and had an ashtray installed in his plane.

Since I'm flying with his skin I would expect that sort of detail added to the game. How could something like this be missed? It's a Goering skin, it should be accurate don't you think?

HOW COULD GOERING EVEN FIT IN THE COCKPIT OF A 109? DID THEY GREASE HIM UP FIRST?

1) you meant Galland

2) it wasn't an ahtray but a cigar holder. He often had a cigar in his mouth, lit or not but he never smoked in the plane. That's one reason he survived the war sitting on top of a gas tank.

Actually the skin itself it toally inaccurate!

Goering was addicted to morphine, and had been from the time he was wounded during the Munich Putsch.

He was so frequently high that he needed no aircraft whatsoever to fly!!

There are unconfirmed reports of him having taken off immediately after a lunch of beans and his favorite drug, and upon reaching the altitude of the bomber stream finding that the inbalance of gas pressure between the outside air and the contents of his stomach left him armed with one of the most potent and deadly automatic weapons of all time. Hitler was so impressed he was planning to staff all fighter squadrons with junkies from the start of 1946. This was to be the V4...... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Nothing happened when he pulled the string. Girls tie their bikini strings pretty tightly in my experience.
