Westland Whirlwind - Desert Camo No.6 Squadron
By SpinnersThis is a fictional Desert Camo scheme for the Westland Whirlwind recently released by Veltro2K with markings for the famous No.6 squadron ('The Flying Can-Openers') of the Royal Air Force. For SFP1/SFG/WOV/WOE/WOI just drop the folder called '6d' into your Whirlwind folder and go and open some cans! For SF2 users things are a bit more tricky but you probably know your way around the different file structure by now. BTW the Whirlwind flies really nicely in SF2 but make sure you've got your throttle to zero before you start!
Anyway, many thanks to Veltro2K for this little gem and also to Syrinx for the template and for the serial number decals - to which I've added another two to make a baker's dozen plus I've knocked up some reasonably authentic squadron codes.
Blackburn Ripon (Finland)
By LloydNBBLACKBURN Ripon
A further use for SkippyBing's excellent Blackburn Baffin.
The Blackburn Ripon was a pre-war carrier-borne torpedo-bomber and reconaissance aircraft, a development of the Swift, Dart and Velos family. The Ripon was a conventional biplane which was first flown in 1928. In total 123 were built and there were in addition 25 Blackburn Ripon II F: a Finnish assembled Ripon. Based on 1 production Ripon acquired from Great Britain in 1928, 25 were subsequently assembled in Finland under licence in 1931-34. The Finns used a number of different engines with the Ripon in service until 1944.
The only preserved Blackburn Ripon (RI-140), has an Armstrong-Siddely Panther radial engine. It is stored in Päijänne Tavastia Aviation Museum in Asikkala, Finland

Hudson - RNZAF
By LloydNBLockheed Hudson Mk III.
No. 2 Squadron, RNZAF 1941
The Lockheed Hudson served with the RNZAF from 1941 until the end of WWII, first in the general reconnaissance and bomber role and later as a transport aircraft. At the start of 1940 the RNZAF was still operating the Vickers Vincent biplane, but the British government agreed to provide New Zealand with eighteen Hudsons (March 1940). By the end of 1941 this number had been increased to thirty-six, which were used to equip Nos.1, 2 and 4 Squadrons. Eventually the RNZAF would receive 101 Hudsons (54 Mk.IIIs, 37 Mk.IIIAs, 6 Mk.Vs and 4 Mk.VIs).
Tiger Moth Upgrade
By WrenchAdding a little 'bite' to this fun-to-fly little bird. Gets a Lewis Gun, and to wing stations for light bombs. Full instructions in the readme ...
By RAVENThis is the same 20th Sqn skin in 1024x1024.
With missing horizontal stabilizer Strips added.
Egyptian Air Force 1956
This is a set of decals and a repaint of the HarvardIIB_IDF by Rob "Bunyap" McCray. The original Harvard skin by Pappychksix. All credit for the rest of the skin goes to him.
Elements of this skin come from the Harvard/Texan by Alphasim for Flight Simulator X (base textures by Frank Safranek) and a re-paint by Henry William.
Blackburn Baffin - RNZAF
By LloydNBBlackburn Baffin
2 GR (Wellington) Squadron. RNZAF (1938-1941)
For the Baffin by SkippyBing (Philip Chandler), which is available at Avsim.
New Zealand received 29 Blackburn Baffins during 1937/38. Most were converted Ripon MkIIs that had seen long service with the FAA. A handful were built as Baffins and served in the Middle East.
Arranged into 3 squadrons and assigned to training duties, they were pressed into active service (anti-submarine patrols) at the start of hostilities. The entire contingent was replaced by Hudsons and reduced to scrap in 1941.
The last remaining example of the type (a Ripon converted to a radial engine) is in Finland.
Mohawk IV - 3 SAAF Squadron
By LloydNBMohawk IV
3 SAAF Squadron
Formed in Waterkloof, South Africa in September 1940 for service in Kenya, 3 SAAF Squadron operated a number of different aircraft. It received its Curtiss Mohawk IVs in September 1941, towards the end of the East Africa campaign. The SAAF acquired 72 ex-French Hawk 75A-4s, initially for home defence.
Please note that there is no aircraft included in this pack. You need a copy of Wrench's Hawk75_ADA.
Read the README file first. You will also need the PilotHurricane files.
12 Squadron Wellington, Skin & Ini Pak
By WrenchVickers Wellington, Skin and Ini Update Pak -For SF/WoV/WoE ETO Installs-
Some small ini mods and a new skin (from a completely new template) for Veltro2K's RAF medium bomber.
New, modified inis include the data ini with additional and corrected lighting and bomb bay tweeks (which will allow the loading of the 2000 & 3000 lb "Cookie" bombs), and the cockpit ini with repositioned pilot station. The aforementioned lighting additions include landing, various formation and marker lights.
The Flight Model remains untouched!
The skin represents 12 Squadron, approx late 1940/early 1941 time frame, after their return from the Battle of France, and trading in their Fairey Battles for Wellingtons. This skin, from a totally NEW template by me, is based off the solid UV maps so graciously provided by Veltro2k (thanks Ed!!!). The trademark 'geodesic' lines I've tried to duplicate as best as possible. The Serial number decals for 26 aircraft are also new. I cannot claim as high a historical accuracy as I'd like, having only found actual proof for 4 aircraft of 12 Squadron (B,C,R,V). The other serials were assigned to Wellingtons, I'm just not sure of their operational squadron usage.
The new templates are available upon request.
=This mod is designed for use with the Bunyap Weapons Pak of 6/06, as it contains all the needed weapons . If attempting to use this aircraft with any other weapons pak, you'll need to add ALL the WW2 era guns, bombs, torpedoes, etc. They are NOT included in this package.=
As expected, there's a nice detailed readme for you all to NOT ignore... so, give a good once over, huh?
RAAF Hudson skin
By SyrinxRAAF skin for Veltro2k's excellent Hudson MkI

Royal New Zealand Air Force 1944
This is a set of decals and a repaint of the SBD-5 based on a skin for CFS2 by Henry Williams.
Syrian Texan (1948)
Syrian Air Force 1948
This is a set of decals and a repaint of the SNJ_6 by Rob "Bunyap" McCray. The original Texan skin by Pappychksix.
This skin comes from the Harvard/Texan by Alphasim for Flight Simulator X (base textures by Frank Safranek) and a re-paint by Henry William. My contribution has been to adapt it for SFP1 and so is minimal. I've used some poetic licence about the colour scheme.
France provided Syria with Canadian built Harvard/Texans shortly after WWII. They were used in 1948 quite successfully in the ground attack role.
F4F Martlet Western Desert

VF-871 RCN Sqn for the Sea Fury
By Tim CanadaVF-871 RCN Squadron for the Hawker Sea Fury FB.11/Mk.50
The RCN equipped Nos 803 and 883 Squadrons (later designated VF-870 and VF-871) with the Hawker SEA FURY. these squadrons flew 75 Sea Furies from February, 1948 to April, 1957 operating from both HMCS Magnificent and its replacement, HMCS Bonaventure. One of the Sea Fury's acquired was a Mk.10 while the other 74 were F.B. Mk.11s. These were both single seat fighters and fighter-bombers, and were similar except that the Mk 11s were equipped to carry the 100/1,000 pound jettisonable wing bomb carriers. The outer portions of the wings of both models could be folded upwards hydraulically to facilitate stowage below decks on an aircraft carrier.
You must first have the SeaFury_v1 bt Simon Porter in order to install these skins.
Unzip to your /Objects/Aircraft/SeaFury folder.
*I have also included RCN themed Loading and Hangar screens. backup your originals just in case you don't like mine. Thanks to RCAF.com and Airliners.net for the images and information.
I would like to thank Simon Porter for all the hard work he put into creating the Sea Fury. Thanks to Saguanay for reference material and also to David Hanvey and Paul Barry who created a wonderful FS 2004 model of the Sea Fury which I used as reference.

The aircraft were all delivered to the British Purchasing Commission on 23 August 1940 and transferred to the first FAA unit 804 squadron at Hatston, 778 squadron at Arbroath, 759 squadron at Yeovilton and 802 squadron at Donisbristle from September through to November 1940.
