    1. Tweaked Flight Models and Realism Pack for FE2

      Hello Gents & Fellow Flyers of First Eagles 2,

      Included in the same folder with this ReadMe file are over 190 modified data files that I use for aircraft that are available on the CombatAce website for First Eagles 2. I’m very pleased that we have a larger selection of aircraft for the WWI period than WOFFue or ROF – well done modders and many thanks!

      The installation process for the data ini modifications is now simplified, with all versions up to 8.9 being included per theater in a large “consolidated” folder. Inside that folder you will find a long “Read Me” file that lists a version history up to ver. 8.9, and all of the incremental mods. done to the FMs up to that point. The latest files are found per theater in a separate “DataFilesAdditionsVer90” folder and should be installed over the mods. included in the consolidated folder if you haven’t yet upgraded to ver. 8.9 of the FM update pack. Also take note of other folders such as “ForFlightFolder,” “ForObjectsFolder,” etc., located in the latest ver. 9.0 update, and install items into the relevant folder hierarchy of your FE2 user directory.
       
      A great many thanks go out to Peter01 and Ojcar, also TexMurphy, for making most of those flight model files to begin with. Also a great thanks goes out to Stephen1918, MontyCZ and Laton for providing lots of beautiful planes and skins that go with those great flight models, to NBell for the many hitbox improvements provided for the planes, also to VonOben and Mike Dora for many helpful suggestions, and to the A-Team by SkunkWorks for allowing me to tweak a few of the FMs for their models too. And of course a very big thanks goes out to Geezer for the fantastic, high-quality models that are being made for FE2.

      What I've done is tinkered with the data files further. Modifications in all cases, to a greater or lesser extent, include data under the following sections:

      (a) MissionData
      (b) FlightControl
      (c) AIData
      (d) Sound
      (e) AircraftData
      (f) Engine
      (g) Crew
      (h) Internal Guns
      (i) Control Surfaces
      (j) Landing Gears
      (k) Fuselage, Nose, Tail, Vertical Tail, LeftStab, RightStab, Rudder, Left/Right/Inner/Middle/Outer/Tip Wing components
       
      As always, please read the included "Read Me" file for more thorough installation info., and details regarding the FM tweaks.
       
      Enjoy and happy flying!,
      Von S

    2. Taube (grenade armed)

      This version of the Taube is armed with a handful of grenades instead of a rifle. many thanks to all the people who worked on the original Taube and a special thanks to Stephen1918 who was kind enough to make time to alter his model to remove the gunner.All work on this is really the efforts of others and my only contribution was to bundle it up. Any issues please direct to me and I'll do my best to fix them as soon as I can.

    3. Taube

      There were many versions of the Taube produced in the years leading up to World War I. When the war began different versions were being used in large numbers, on all fronts for recon missions. This is the Kondor Taube, which I think is representive of the "classic" Taube. It has the typical wing shape, uses wing warping for both the aileron and elevator surfaces, and has a six cylinder 100HP engine.
       
      I have added a rifle for the observer, which he will aim and fire. I have made significant changes to the wires on the front to give the gunner more room to move.
       
      Ojcar has created a fake machine gun for the pilot, which causes the AI plane to be more aggressive in pursuing enemy planes. I have installed that gun on this plane. Ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data is included with this download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      Some flyers wore simple crash helmets in WWI, especially in the early days. I am using a pilot with a helmet in this plane. The pilot and installation instructions are included in the download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      The download includes my skinning templates, data for the guns and the German pilot with helmet.
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Taube, and for greatly improving the gunner. Ojcar also made the data for the dummy machine gun.
      Thanks to Crawford for identifying a problem with the elevators.
       
      Installation Instructions
      For FE1 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "Taube" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
       
      For FE2 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "Taube" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "Taube". Move the folder named "D" from your Aircraft/Taube folder into the Decals/Taube folder you just made.
       
       
       
      You may not need to install the dummy machine gun, it has been used on other planes and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the gun and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.
       
      You may not need to install the infantry, it has been used on ground units and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the gun and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.
       
      You may not need to install the pilot with helmet, it has been available for download for some time and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the pilot and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.

    4. RAF BE2c

      Several variations of the BE2 were produced by the Royal Aircraft Factory from 1912 until the end of World War 1. The BE2c was introduced in 1914 and was produced in large numbers. It was designed to be a very stable plane, which was desirable in a reconnaissance plane, but not very effective for a fighter. During its service, the BE2c was used mostly for recon missions, but it sometimes served as a fighter and as a light bomber.
       
      I have included two skins, a stock linen, and a brown paint. A full set of number decals are included for each skin. My skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      The gunner in the BE2c sat in front of the pilot and either had multiple guns, or was able to move the gun between multiple mounts. The game engine does not allow this, so I set up the data file to limit the gunner's aim to the upper rear of the plane. However, I provided alternate lines in the FM which will allow you to widen the gunner's aim, but that makes the gun pass through the struts, and sometimes shoot through the wing.
       
      Instructions for changing the gunner's range of motion are included in the download.
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the BE2c and for providing resources for the model.
      Thanks also to 33Lima and Hansa who provided resources for the cockpit and help with details of the model.
      Thanks to Mike Dora for identifying and helping me fix problems with the gunner.
      Thanks to Nicholas Bell for correcting the hit box coordinates for this plane.

    5. RAF BE2e

      The BE2e was an improved variant of the BE2c introduced in 1916. It had a longer upper wing and a shorter lower wing with a single set of struts. It also had a slightly smaller horizontal tail. The new configuration improved the plane's maneuverability, but did little to improve its overall performance. I have included a light bomb load, but the plane's rate of climb suffers somewhat when carrying bombs.
       
      I have included two skins, a green paint (PC10), and a brown paint (PC12). A full set of number decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.

    6. Anatra D - "Field Mod"

      The Anatra D was a predecessor to the Anatra DS. The stock plane was powered by a Gnome rotary engine and armed with a single machine gun for the observer.
       
      I have made a "field mod" version with a fuselage mounted machine gun for the pilot. Anades with additional machine guns are known to have existed, but I haven't found any photos of them. I added the gun for the pilot in what seemed to be a logical position.
       
      The Anatra D was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. After overcoming some initial design problems, it entered service in May, 1916 and was produced in relatively large numbers. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
       
      I have included three skins, two linen and a grey paint. A full set of number decals and a loadout for light bombs are included. I have also included my skinning templates for those who wish to make their own skins.
       

      Credits:
      My thanks to Ojcar for making the original data.ini for this plane. I have modified Ojcar's file to include the additional gun.
       

      Installation instructions:
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "AnatraDMod" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
       
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "AnatraDMod" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AnatraDMod". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/AnatraDMod folder into the Decals/AnatraDMod folder you just made.

    7. Lloyd C.II

      This is a complete revision of the Lloyd C.II with all new LODs, new skins, and improved decals. Ojcar has also improved the FM for this plane. Any skins that were made for the original version will not work with this version.
       
      The Lloyd C.II was based on a pre-war Austro-Hungarian airplane but with a slightly shorter wingspan and the addition of a machine gun on a circular mount for the observer. The C.II featured a plywood body and swept-back, tapered wings and was used for reconnaissance and light bombing throughout the war.
       
      The gun ring had limited movement, especially in the vertical direction, which I have tried to reproduce in my model. This will be a challenging plane to fly because you need to move the plane to bring enemy planes into range of the gunner. There is no gun for the pilot.
       
      There are also two bomb loading options for light and heavy bombing runs. (We don't know if the Lloyd ever carried 50kg bombs, but we included the option anyway.)
       
      I have included three skinning options, one with standard Austro-Hungarian markings from early in the war, and two from later in the war. I have included my skinning templates for those who want make their own skins.
       
      I have included a set of serial numbers which will be randomly assigned to each plane. The numbers are fictitious, but in the correct range for the Lloyd C.II.
       
      Ojcar made a new data.ini for this plane. He added the heavy bomb option to the loadout. The 6.5 Schwarzlose gun he created for the original plane is included, along with his instructions for loading the gun data ("DataReadMe.txt")
       
      Credits:
      Great thanks to Ojcar, who made the excellent FM and who added some nice features to this plane.
       
      Installation instructions:
      This is a complete revision of the original Lloyd C.II. If you have the plane already, begin by deleting the Lloyd C.II from the Aircraft Folder, and (if you run FE2) from the Decals folder. Then install the new plane.
       
      For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "LloydC2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.
       
      For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "LloydC2" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folder named "LloydC2". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/LloydC2 folder into the Decals/LloydC2 folder you just made.
       
      To install the gun:
      This is the same gun that was included with the original Lloyd C.II. If you had the original plane, you don't need to install the gun. If this is your first install, follow the instructions below.
       
      For FE1: Follow the instructions in Ojcar's DataReadMe.txt file. You'll have to make changes to the LloydC2_data.ini file.
       
      For FE2: Follow the instructions in Ojcar's DataReadMe.txt file.

    8. Farman HF.20 unarmed

      The Farman HF.20 was developed in 1913 and was being used by most of the air forces in Europe by the time World War I began. It was designed for reconnaissance and had very stable flight characteristics, but it didn't have a very powerful engine and wasn't suitable for fighter or bomber missions, although some pilots made the attempt. The Farman F.20 was withdrawn from front line service as more nimble aircraft became available.
       
      This version does not have a machine gun and places the observer behind the pilot.It can carry a small bomb load, with the bombs being released over the side. This install will not replace the original Farman HF.20, so you can fly both of them in First Eagles.
       
      My skins for Belgian, French, and Russian versions will work for both versions of the HF.20. I have included all three in this download. The Russian version uses the decal.ini posted by Crawford in the forums. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      Some flyers wore simple crash helmets in WWI, especially in the early days. I am using a pilot with a helmet in this plane. The pilot and installation instructions are included in the download, in case you don't already have it.
       
      The Farman HF.20 has a wider wingspan than First Eagles expects so you should install my "Airfields for Large Planes" available in the Combat Ace downloads area. Otherwise, when starting on the runway, your wings may be touching the wings of the planes next to you. This will cause an immediate collision and you or other planes in your flight may lose their wingtips as soon as the game starts.

    10. Anatra DS "Anasal"

      The Anatra DS was a two seat Russian plane powered by a Salmson 9 cylinder, water cooled, rotary engine. The plane was therefore called the "Anasal", short for "Anatra Salmson". When the Ukrainian city of Odessa was occupied by Austria-Hungary early in 1918, the Anatra factory was found intact and production continued as the "Anatra C.I". Many of the first Austrian versions had the Austrian cross painted over the Russian insignia.
       
      The Anatra was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
       
      In version 2 - I have included a loadout for a light bomb load and three skinning options - A generic Russian skin, and skins for two Russian squadrons - the 19th and the 4th squadrons with decals for the squadron tail markings. I have included my skinning templates for those who want make their own skins.
       
      In version 3 - I improved the details around the nose, completely reskinned the plane and cockpit, and corrected several problems with node names in the data file. New templates are included in the version 3 download.
       

      Historical Notes:
      I found several sources which said that Anatras carried a machine gun mounted on the fuselage for the pilot. I couldn't find any details of the mounting, so I guessed where it might be located.

    11. Oeffag C.II

      The Oeffag C.II was a two-seat Austro-Hungarian plane introduced in mid 1916. It was intended to replace the Hansa-Brandenburg C.I. Pilots considered it a better plane, but it wasn't as maneuverable, and did not completely replace the Hansa-Brandenburg. The Oeffag C.II was armed with a single machine gun and was used primarily for reconnaissance, but could also carry a small bomb load for infantry support missions. It was used mostly on the Eastern Front, but also served on the Italian and Baltic Fronts.
       
      My version has two skins with an early and a late insignia scheme. There is a complete set of number decals and a loadout for a small bomb load. I have included my skinning templates with the download.
       
      Historical Note: The Oeffag C.II could carry four 10kg bombs, which were carried in the cockpit and dropped over the side by the observer. In my plane, I mounted them on a bomb rack under the fuselage.

    12. SPAD 16

      The SPAD 16 was essentially a SPAD 11 with a more powerful Lorraine-Dietrich 240 hp engine. Although it was faster, the heavier engine made the SPAD 16 harder to handle and performance was slightly worse than the SPAD 11. Like the SPAD 11, it was armed with a forward firing Vickers gun and a Lewis gun on a ring mount for the observer. It could also carry a small bomb load under the wings.
       
      The SPAD 16 entered service early in 1918. Several French squadrons were equipped with the SPAD 16 and a few were purchased by the US. It continued in service until the end of the war.
       
      I have made two skins for the SPAD 16 - a French camo, and a USAS camo - each with appropriate squadron insignia. Most of the skins are identical to the SPAD 11 skins, only the Fuselage and Upper Right Wing skins are changed. My skinning templates are included in the download for those who want to make their own skins.
       
      I did not have a sound file for the Lorraine-Dietrich engine, so I used the same sound as the SPAD 11.

    13. SPAD 11

      The SPAD 11 was originally designed as a two seat fighter, but was not agile enough to meet the requirements; so it used as a replacement for the Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter and Dorand AR reconnaissance planes. It was armed with a forward firing Vickers gun and a Lewis gun on a ring mount for the observer. It could also carry a small bomb load. The SPAD 11 entered service in late 1917, was flown by several French and Belgian squadrons, and continued in service until nearly the end of the war.
       
      I have made three skins for the SPAD 11 - a French linen, a French camo, and a Belgian camo - each with appropriate squadron insignia. My skinning templates are included in the download for those who want to make their own skins. I have also included a loadout for a light bomb load carried under the wings.

    14. LFG Roland D.II

      The Roland D.II was a German fighter introduced in early 1917. It featured an unusual fuselage, with the upper wings attached to a pylon in front of the pilot. Although the plane had a strong structure and performed reasonably well, the poor forward view limited its effectiveness as a fighter. On the Western Front, it was soon replaced by other planes, but continued in service on the Eastern and Macedonian Fronts until the end of the war.
       
      I have included two skins, a green and lilac camo, and a green and brown camo. I have also included a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.

    15. LFG Roland D.IIa

      The Roland D.IIa was nearly identical to the D.II, but had a more powerful engine. The 180HP Argus As.III engine increased the plane's speed and maneuverability, but because it was a low compression engine, it started to lose power at higher altitudes. Like the D.II, the D.IIa was quickly replaced on the Western Front, but served until the end of the war on the Eastern and Macedonian Fronts.
       
      The skins for the Roland D.IIa are nearly identical to the skins for the D.II, but there are some changes to the engine. If you swap skins, you may see some minor stretching on some of the engine components and around the nose of the plane. I have included two new skins, a light green and brown camo, and a dark green and brown camo. I have also included a full set of number decals appropriate for the D.IIa. My skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      I didn't have a sound file for the Argus 180hp engine, so I used the sound for the Mercedes 180hp instead.

    16. Anatra D "Anade"

      The Anatra D was a predecessor to the Anatra DS. It was powered by a Gnome rotary engine and armed with a single machine gun for the observer. The Anatra D was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. After overcoming some initial design problems, it entered service in May, 1916 and was produced in relatively large numbers. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
       
      I have included two skins, a plain linen and a grey paint. A full set of number decals and a loadout for light bombs are included. I have also included my skinning templates for those who wish to make their own skins.

    17. Albatros D.I

      The Albatros D.I was the first in a long line of successful Albatros fighters. It had a molded plywood fuselage, which made it lightweight but strong. With its powerful engine and dual machine guns it outclassed any Entente fighters in the air at the time.
       
      The biggest drawback to the D.I was the position of the upper wing, which obscured the pilot's view. Production quickly switched to the D.II which was basically the same plane but with the upper wing mounted lower.
       
      The download includes three skins, a basic linen, a grey paint, and a 2 color camo. There is also a full a full set of serial number decals. The skinning templates are identical to the Albatros D.II templates, I have included them in this download for the sake of convenience.
       
      This plane uses the same engine sound as the Albatros D.II, which you probably already have. I have placed an alternate line in the data file to change the sound to the default "PropLoop" sound if you prefer.

    18. Farman F.30

      Russia was the only country that used the French designed Farman F.30. While no other allies adopted it, the F.30 was the primary plane of the Imperial Russian Air Service and the Russians built about 400 of them at the Dux factory near Moscow beginning in 1915. It was used throughout WWI and was used by both sides during the Russian Civil Wars.
       
      The Farman F.30 was powered my a Salmson 150hp water-cooled engine, had a single machine gun for the observer, and was said to be able to maneuver as well as the Eindeckers it faced. It was a general purpose plane, used originally as a fighter, and later for recon, artillery spotting, and light bomber missions.
       
      My plane includes a loadout for a light bomb load. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      I have included ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data, Peter01's Lewis Machine Gun data in the download.
       
      Warning
      The Farman F.30 has a wider wingspan than First Eagles expects so you should install my "Airfields for Large Planes" available in the Combat Ace downloads area. Otherwise, when starting on the runway, your wings may be touching the wings of the planes next to you. This will cause an immediate collision and you or other planes in your flight may lose their wingtips as soon as the game starts.

    19. Fokker D.III

      The Fokker D.III was a more powerful version of the D.II, using the same wings and tail as the D.II. It had a 14 cylinder Oberursal rotary engine, which required changes to the fuselage but allowed the plane to carry two Spandau machine guns. Unfortunately, the engine had a low compression rate and the plane lost power at high altitudes. Never-the-less, German ace Oswald Boelcke scored 7 victories in 13 days flying a Fokker D.III.
       
      I have made two skins - a plain white linen, and a two color (brown and green) camo. I have also made a full set of serial number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.

    20. Oeffag built Albatros D.II

      Note - This plane uses the same name as Bortdafarm's Oeffag Albatros D.II so that it will appear in Ojcar's Armchair Aces campaigns without any revisions. However, installing mine will overwrite Bort's plane. If you want to have them both, you will need to rename one of them.
       
      The Albatros D.II was a successful German built fighter. In late 1916, the Austrian firm Oeffag was licensed to produce Albatros fighters for the Austro-Hungarian military. Very few Oeffag D.IIs were produced before production went over to the D.IIIs, but for a time, it was the best fighter on the Italian and Eastern Fronts.
       
      The Oeffag built plane had a more powerful engine than the German built planes (185 hp Austro-Daimler) and carried only one Schwarzlose gun in the fuselage as opposed to two Spandaus on the German plane. It also had minor changes to the wings, tail, and cockpit.
       
      This download includes a basic linen and wood skin, an insignia decal, and a full set of serial numbers. The skinning templates are identical to the original Albatros D.II templates, I have included them in this download for the sake of convenience.
       
      Historical Note
      Only 16 Oeffag Albatros D.II's were produced. I have added a few fake serial numbers to fill out the list so the game won't be able to assign duplicate numbers. You may see numbers 53.17 through 53.20 in the game, but these planes were never actually built.

    21. Albatros D.II - 2 pack

      Note - This is a complete revision with new LODs, new skins, and new hangar and loading screens. I recommend you delete the older version and replace it with this one.
       
      The Albatros D.II was identical to the D.I, except that the top wing was mounted lower and farther forward to improve visibility. The fuselage, engine, and guns were the same. Early models had two radiators low on either side of the fuselage, later models had the radiator mounted in the upper wing.
       
      I have created both versions of the D.II. I put both radiators on the skins so the same skin can be used for both versions. The download includes two skins, a light camo and a dark camo, and a full set of personal markings for each plane. I have included my skinning templates for those who wish to make different skins.

    23. Halberstadt D5

      This aircraft is an all-new model, with hi-res skins. The D5 was basically a cleaned up D3. The upper wing structure was revised with a simpler strut system that improved pilot visibility, and the exhaust system was simplified. The D5 had provision for two Spandau machine guns, but usually just one was installed on the left side (to save weight). The D5's structure was very strong for its day, but the 120 hp engine was not powerful enough to match the performance of Albatross fighters so only fifty-seven D5s were built.
       
      A separate graphics pack will be posted soon, containing textures and templates.
       
      To install, unzip the contents to a new folder.
       
      For FE/FEG: I don't have them so I don't know how to install these files. If you run FE/FEG and have trouble loading these files, post a question in the First Eagles section here at Combat Ace - someone should help you.
       
      For FE2:
      Copies of three ini files - ENVIRONMENTSYSTEM, SOUNDLIST, VIEWLIST - go in your FLIGHT folder.
      A copy of the HalberstadtD5 folder goes in your OBJECTS/AIRCRAFT folder.
      A copy of the Pilots folder goes in your OBJECTS folder.
      A copy of the SOUNDS folder goes in your First Eagles 2 folder (alongside FLIGHT, OBJECTS, etc)
       
      There is a long list of guys who helped me produce this aircraft, or posted stuff that I used to complete the package:
      - Stephen1918
      - Ojcar
      - gambit168
      - Sully
      - Southside Bucky
      - Nixou
      - Viper63a

    24. Rumpler C.I

      The Rumpler C.I was a general purpose two-seat plane first produced in 1915. It was used on all fronts and served throughout the war. My model is armed with a Parabellum machine gun on a Schneider Ring in the rear cockpit along with a synchronized Spandau mounted on the left side the engine.
       
      I have included two loadouts, one for eight 11 kilo bombs carried under the wings, and another for two 50 kilo bombs carried under the fuselage.
       
      I have also included three skinning options - A plain linen and a light blue paint representing early models, and a green/mauve camouflage for later in the war. I have included my templates for those who want to make additional skins.
       
      This plane uses the national markings that come with First Eagles, so you can change nationalities to fly for Austria, Bulgaria or the Turks.
       
      I have included decals for serial numbers and, on the linen and light blue skins, for flight letters. You can choose the letter in the loadout screen. The numbers will be applied randomly.
       
      Historical Notes:
      The serial numbers are fictitious, but in the correct range for the Rumpler C.I.
      I don't know if the flight letters are realistic. The plane looked too naked, and I saw one photo of a Rumpler with a letter "J" on the side, so I allowed my imagination to take over.
       
      Credits:
      My thanks again to Ojcar for making the excellent FM file for this plane.
      Also, my thanks to Nix for making the realistic engine sound file for the Mercedes 6 cylinder engine. (This is the same sound file used with the Albatros C.III so you may already have it.)

    25. Caudron G.4

      The Caudron G.4 was a twin engine French bomber. It was introduced late in 1915, it used wing warping for banking and had four rudders. The plane was widely used, and saw service on most of the fronts. After 1916, it was used mostly for night bombing and reconnaissance.
       
      I have included four skins, a French linen, an Italian linen, a Russian grey, and a British brown. I have included some personal markings, but the serial number is so hard to see on this plane, that I only made one. My skinning templates are included in the download.
       
      There are three bomb loadouts, including one internal, and two external bomb loads. I had to make a special pilot, because the stock FE pilot would not fit in the Caudron cockpit. The new pilot is included in the download.
       
      Historical Note
      All of the examples I found had linen skins, except for some Russian grey or light blue planes. I have included a British brown skin because it seemed likely that other colors than plane linen were used, although I found no evidence of it.
       
      Credits
      Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Caudron G.4.
      Thanks also to Whiteknight06604 who originally suggested this plane more than a year ago, and provided some resources at that time. Thanks also to Jeanba, who helped research skins for the Caudron G.4.
