This project started as a personal customization to have the Israeli skins for Veltro 2K B-17F/G.
In 1948 the IDF/AF found four B-17G in a dump in Florida and bought them.The planes were in very poor conditions, stripped of the turrets and instruments.Three were made airworty and flew via Azores to Czechoslovakia, there received additional and better instruments ( some war-time Luftwaffe gunsights,ecc...) and loaded with bomb.On their way to Israel, one bombed Cairo and the other two Egyptian positions in Sinai.
The fate of the fourth bomber was less succesful, because the raids of the first three on Egypt prompted a FBI investigation and , cut a long story short, the plane was seized by authority in the Azores, as the crew involved choose to rest after the trip instead of refuel the bird and take off as soon possible.
The bombers were assigned to the 69 Squadron The Hammers at Hatzor and given serial number 1601,1602 and 1603, and by the end of the War of Indepenence the B-17s had flown over 200 missions.
At the time of the Suez crisis the Fortresses were out of service but two were brought back in action with changed two-digit serial numbers and incomplete camouflage ( only brown instead of the standard brown-blue over silk grey).
During their operational use the planes were painted in different way, comprised NMF and with various artwork applied, but this wasn't my focus.
As always raccomended,all in the relative folders in your game(s)
Veltro 2K for the models
Me for the decals and the skins
This modest pack contain both the F and G model despite Israel bought only G model. My choice was dictated by the fact that during the War of Independence the planes were armed only woth the waist and tail guns in a indigenous modification, the rear bulkhead of the tail position conmpletely removed and equipped with twin .03 inch machineguns. For these reason I opted for the B-17F in my mod
By the time of the Suez action ( in reality even before) the complete armament was restored, here my choice for the B-17G.
In 1956 the s/N 23 had the chin turret replaced by a search radar for maritime patrol, but I'm absolutely unable to modify the models as I'm not a modder, so you will be fly with the gun turret in his place.
I choose to add the fourth plane ,just to have one more, despite never arrived in Israel.

By trotski00Heinkel He 51
Birth of the Luftwaffe
I present you with my latest collection of skins, this time for the Heinkel He 51, one of the first Luftwaffe aircraft to see active service, in a air war, the first time for Germany since the end of WWI. The He 51 was a biplane fighter, which was to see service in the Spanish Civil War. It however was found to be very un suited for use as a fighter, as , to be honest, there wasn't much really ground breaking, and there were certainly far better biplane types in service around the world, than the Heinkel turned out to be. Where it was found to shine however, was in the light ground attack role, in which it was quite successful. Several future Luftwaffe aces cut their teeth flying this aircraft, before transitioning across to the BF 109 , which swiftly replaced the biplane in the Jagd role.
It was however, an attractive aircraft, and was as I mentioned before, quite a successful recon and ground attack aircraft. I was used by the Luftwaffe, probably as a squadron hack, until the middle of the war. It was only exported to 2 countries, those being Bulgaria, and Spain, The Spanish had these old girls still in service until the mid 50's. It appears the Bulgarians used them until around 1942 -43.
So, on with the blurb. I have included 3 skins for aircraft of JG 88 Condor Legion, from different JagdGruppe ( 2, 3, 4 ) Also I have 4 colourful examples from around 1936 or so, in Luftwaffe colours of the time, with their colourful markings. next there are 2 variations on the Bulgarian machines, pre Communist, and post Communist, the final real skin is a Spanish post 1939 scheme. The last 2 I have thrown in for fun. The first is a Parani one because I KNOW some of you lot do play Paran Dhimar. and finally, An Imperial Elbonian Air Service skin, just because, SO THERE !!
This aircraft is a model made by Stephen 1918. I have completely redone the skin , panels, rivets etc. etc. All the files you need are included in this upload EXCEPT for the LOD's. For those, please be kind enough to download Stephens original model FIRST Before attempting to fly the beastie !! I have however included all the .INI files, that are pertinent to these skins, so please, after you have downloaded the aircraft from the FE 2 Golden age download section, you ensure that the files I have included , replace the ones you will get with Stephens original aircraft. There are reasons for this, such as gunsights, sounds, weapons, pilots etc. etc. So please rename stephens .INI files just in case you want to use those instead of mine. I cannot see that you shall want or need to though.
I have included everything else all in their respective folders, so you should be able to drop it into your save file, wherever that may be. So Sounds, guns, bombs and tank, sounds, and pilots, and of course Decals are all here for you. Just please follow the directions I have stated here. and you will be good to go. As a side note, I have found that a good terrain to utilise for this aircraft is the Finland one, seems to work well. However if you are wanting this aircraft to use in FE2 then wait as I shall be doing a separate upload for First Eagles Spanish Civil War, these skins in this format WILL NOT WORK IN FE !!
Anyhow, that about wraps it up. Thanks to Stephen, who is very kind to me, and allows me to bugger up his lovely aeroplanes. So major kudos to him for making the model in the first place. Any glitches, problems, gripes, whinges, or moans, please contact my P.A. Mrs Ramsbottom. She will occupy you and deflect ALL your woes, with her rather nice Victoria sponge cake and a nice cup of Tea ........failing that, message me and I shall see about correcting any bugger ups
Finally, as ever, ENJOY (I have enjoyed flying around in this rather attractive aircraft, I even got 2 kills in her )

By WrenchSF2 Vichy French Air Force, Tiger Moth Skin UPgrade 2/25/2020
-- Something for Fun --
= For SF2 Any and All=
A small upgrade for LloydNB's Vichy French Tigermoth, as used in Indochina in the early 1940s. It is, obviously, for use on RussoUK's DH Tigermoth. The aircraft itself is available at the following URL:
This is a very simple mod; just a quickie repaint to remove the original painted on fuselage number, and the addition of 18 "plane-in-squad" numbers. No historical accuracy is claimed, as I've only found one image of the aircraft, and it had the number 5 on it.
As said above, something just for fun!

The package is built to just "drop in" over the existing inis (overwrite), and included updated data, loadout and user lists to futher reflect the P-47Ds use in the Post-War world. Loadout changes add "date switched" CAS/AR loads from WW2s 'Triple Bazooka' to HVAR rockets. All weapons are included. It has been tested in both the WW2 and Post-War environments.
Several new or updated skins are also included:

By WrenchSF2 P-47N Thunderbolt Post WW2 USAAF/USAF & Air National Guard Skins Pack 6/20/2019
-For SF2, (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)-
This is a package for post-WW2 and Air National Guard squadrons that flew the P/F-47N Thunderbolt in the years from 1946-1954. These are for V.2 of Russ's N-Jug. All skins are in jpg format.
You can find Version 2.0 of Russ' P-47N at the following URL:
The skins included herein for Regular USAAF/USAF units are:
37th/48th/49th FS, 14th FG
99th/100th/301st FS, 477th CG/332nd FG
The other skins included here are for the Air National Guards of the following states:
Hawaii (Territory of)
Puerto Rico (Territory of)
The USAAF/USAF had divided the country at the Mississippi River, and had P-51 Mustang ANG units in the west, and P-47D/N units in the east. This is why this set only has Thunderbolts, and all are Eastern States.
They are displayed on the Squadron Selection Drop-down window on the Loading Screen, as below:
37th/48th/49th FS 14FG (1946-48)
99th/100th/301st FSs 332nd FG (1945-48)
118th FS, 103rd FG (CT ANG 1946-52)
142nd FS (DE ANG 1946-54)
128th FS (GA ANG 1947-51)
199th FS (HI ANG 1946-54)
101st FS (MA ANG 1947-51)
146th FS, 112th FG (PA ANG 1947-51)
198th FS (PR ANG 1947-55)
Operational dates are rounded to the closest full year. The SF2 'date switch' is =NOT= used on any of these skins, as they overlap each other. End users (tm) will have to make any changes manually on the Loadout Screen for their flightmates.
A new data ini, with vastly improved FM and engine parameters (Now! With WEP!) is included. Some minor adjustments in hit boxes, armor, fuel tanks, etc have been performed. The operational years remain the same, so WW2 PTO users need not worry. Just drop it in. A backup copy of the original data ini is included, as a safety measure. It should be noted, Stary's superb Late WW2 cockpit -HIGHLY reccomended for this bird- is NOT included. If there is enough interest, I can add it to this, and upload an update. Or update the basic WW2 aircraft package.
Other than special squadron markings (color bands and the like) all markings are decals. Decal randomization is TRUE. Each squadron has 26 serial and 'Buzz number' decals. On the individual aircraft select drop down, for all skins, any marked with a star (*) are been 100% positively identified as having served in that unit. Any not marked should be considered generic in nature as they don't actually represent aircraft from any particular unit, but are late production block P-47Ns. Please see the "Notes" section for information regarding the 332nd & 14th FGs. They are treated as special cases. A reminder -- this package =ONLY= contains American users (USAF & ANG). None of the export customers are included. Nor are any weapons or pilot figures included. You should have them already.
As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. As there exists an eariler version of these skins/decals, you will want to delete them or back them up to a different location entirely =BEFORE= installing these. Also, PLEASE read the "Notes" for further explainitory words on hows and whys.
By WrenchSF2 P/F-61B Black Widow, 319th F(AW)S Skins Pack 7/2/2019
-For SF2, (Full 5 Merged Reccomended)-
This is a new skin & decal set for Veltro2K's P-61 Black Widow Night/All Weather interceptor.
This skin represents the 318th Fighter (All Weather) Squadron from 1946-1948. They were (originally) based at Mitchell Field (AFB) Long Island, NY, as part of the newly formed Air Defence Command. They and several other night/all weather and day fighter squadrons were responsible for the defence of the northeastern United States. In 1948, they moved to McChord AFB, Washington, transistioned to F-82 Twin Mustangs, and took on Northwest Air Defense duties.
The skin is in jpg format. All markings are decals. 26 new P-61B serial and Buzz numbers were created for this mod. The serials ARE for late production block 61Bs, but should be considered generic in nature as they represent no particular aircraft from any specific unit. Decal randomization is TRUE. Included is a hangar screen for this skin, too! The SF2 'date switch' is used to turn on this skin in 1946.
Also included is a new data and avionics inis. A new more compliant FM has been built, and many engine parameters have been adjusted (NOW! With WEP!!). The avionics ini, given game limitations, should be more in line with the actual workings of the SCR-720 air intercept radar. A backup copy of the data ini is included, for safety's sake. (always back up!!). See "Notes" below for a complete listing, and explainitions.
You must have the original P-61B from either you WW2 installs or a new download from the following URL to apply this skin set to:
Remember, this is a POST-war skin. The data ini has operational dates adjusted (corrected) accordingly.
As is always reccomended, unzip to a temp folder or your desktop to give easy access to the rest of this readme for it's install instructions. Might want to give the "Notes & Other Nonsense" section a once over, as well! :)
Here's a set of skins for Thirdwire's Spitfires LF Mk. IX's for D-Day campaigns. National markings and D-Day ID bands are painted-on.

By GearyTW RF-51D for Korean War
This are a skin and aircraft files to create a RF-51D using the TW P-51D.
You must have the P-51D from the Strike Fighters 2 Expansion Pack 1 for this mod to work.
(If you don't have the TW P-51D and want a RF-51D for your SF2 Korean War install, there's a great one by FastCargo/Wrench in the downloads section.)
The cameras are 2D and are painted on the skin. The skin texture files are in .jpg format at 1024 x 1024 pixels.
Thanks and credit go to:
Third Wire - for the P-51D model.
Wrench - for the decals and RF-51D original skin I modified.
Me - for creating/painting on the 2D camera's; modifiying Wrench's skin to this plane.
? - I'm not sure who created the 108 gallon drop tanks. They've been around for many years. Thanks to the unknown creator. (Consensus is the F-51D used the 108 gallon drop tanks more than the WWII 75 gallon tanks.)
If I forget or miss anyone who deserves credit for anything I release, I apologize. I have no intent to abuse or misuse anyone's work or property or claim it as my own. Please contact me to correct any error.
INSTALLATION: Unzip to a folder/place of your choice. Copy, Move, Drag-n-Drop or do whatever you wish to get the folders into their corresponding folders in your SF2 Korea install. Fly.
