Skin at http://www.screenshotart.com/index.php?download=73

This is a NEW skin not released anywhere else.
The Beaufighter was one of the most feared weapons of warfare along the railway and shipping lanes of the Imperial Japanese Army.
The ability to appear at low level delivering a concise and accurate attack, devasating the target earned it its well known nickname of the
" Whispering Death ".The Beaufighter was flown all through the WWII conflict and served not only in the European theatre but also in the Pacific.
The Japanese nicknamed this twin-engined angel "Whispering Death" on account of it€s quiet engines and the deadly effect to which it was deployed.
Depending on the variant it had up to 6, 0.5mm guns in the wings and four 20mm cannons located underneath the cockpit. It was also optionally fitted
with 8 rocket projectiles under the wings making it a very effective ground attack aircraft
Beaufighter Mk.21 A8-116 N.SK Babs A Beaufighter belonging to the Royal Australian Army The Beaufighter 21 was a unique Australian
variant that operated in Australia and the Pacific theatre during the Second World War; and well into the post-war era.
It was originally based on the Beaufighter Mk.X, but more than 140 modifications and improvements made this the hardest hitting of all
Beaufighter variants.

Numerous references say that these RAAF aircraft were painted the same colour, Foliage Green, all over. This I have tried to replicate on Babs
and have spent literally weeks on producing the weathering on the underside of this aircraft and is the most extensive weathering I have produced bar none.
I do hope you approve of my attempts to breath even more life into this skin and her weathering.. This skin is exclusively uploaded at the moment to
www.screenshotart.com (http://www.screenshotart.com) to help the new skins section and to introduce you all to a fantastic site....... of note is the Gremlin tail art on this aircraft that actually
differs on both sides, again I hope I have done her justice and brings some pleasure to you all...
It's been a while since i released a new skin and I hope you approve of her.......... I am pleased with it.

ENJOY

TonyT
