Your single Nieuport is looking so lonely and fragile over the barren winter landscape, SirMike - good one.

 

Lou, you praise the devs, but show aircraft we don't have in the sim (yet) - is that diplomacy: to say one thing

and mean another; maybe to get those big bombers? Anyway: your sunset pics are very beautiful and calm.

Oops, my bad Olham. I was quite tired when I posted last night. I should have said how beautifully this sim has been crafted by our artisan devs, AND how beautifully the add-on Gothas have been crafted by Seacondor and Winters.

 

I still love flying at sunset though. :smile:

Wasn't meant to sound offensive, Lou - I should have added a Smiley perhaps.

How do you get those biggies into the sim? Do you write missions?

And if so: could you make me one for Albatros escorting such bombers, without

too much time investment?

No offense taken my friend. I am careful to allow a large degree of latitude in such multi-cultural exchanges. As to your request: From where would you like to start and what objective do you wish to fly to; what time of year and hour of day do you wish to begin; which Albatros model do you want to fly; and which Allied planes would you like to have intercept your flight? (actually, I'll just suprise you with that last bit) :wink:

Oh - you really mean to make one for me? Well, what would I like - let me see... I don't know the Gothas and their times.

 

My wishlist (if possible)

 

My craft: Albatros D.II (or any other Albatros)

Escorted craft: Gothas (or other big ones)

Enemy interceptor: your decision

 

Mission target: a target, that would be of such importance, that they'd send the big ones plus escort

Mission distance: not further than it would make sense for Albatros escorts, including combat time

 

So there are many free variables for you to make it fun, I hope?

Jasta 1, Bertincourt, 22. August 1916

Uffz. Mahlo

 

Patrolling east of Arras, we sighted several FE2b and BE2 two-seaters. We engaged,

and soon I had hit one FE2 pusher hard; it caught fire and fell to earth at 09:03 h.

I followed them SW with Fw. Ehms, and I could shoot down a BE2 very easily, cause

it did not have any rearward defense. Nothing heroic really, but it had carried bombs,

which now did not hit any of our ground troops.

Jasta 1, Bertincourt, 23. August 1916

Uffz. Mahlo

 

Yesterday afternoon, we painted the replacement Halberstadt Burgundy red - it looks wonderful!

I took it out for an escort of three Roland "Walfisch" today. Over the lines we got under attack by

four or five Sopwith scouts. They had an advantage of height, but they must have been crazy to

attack ten of us. We made short washing up with them, without any losses.

The rest of the escort went peacefully, and all returned to base safely.

It never fails to amaze me the screenies you guys pull off. Lou, that first shot....the way the failing sun lights the flank of your D7 is sublime.

 

Olham, your reports and acompanying shots are always a joy to read/see. And your 'Burgundy Baron' looks very fine. Don't recall seeing that colour scheme anywhere before.

 

Oh, and congratulations on your upcoming 7000th post :drinks::salute:

Olham's 7000. Post - Cheers to all!

 

My 7.000st post - indeed! Thanks for the reminder, Scousair68 - I would have missed it!

nbryant, the "plum effect" may be from the matt finish appearance of the colour.

I couldn't find out yet, how to get it more semi-gloss. But I'll work on that.

 

SirMike - Battle of Verdun - that's a very serious phase you are flying in, I think.

What German aircraft do you encounter there?

This was NOT funny!!!

 

What can you do, when you are still climbing to patrol over Varsenaere near the north sea coast,

and then you spot three clouds of SPAD VII, to the left, to the right, and in front of you?!?!?

 

About 16 - 18 British SPAD - lots of aces among them - came down on us like armageddon!

My engine was shot up and stopped, before I could even hit anyone. Trying to land the shot up

craft, this Tommy still hasn't enough - he keeps firing at me! I just managed to crash-land my

Albatros and survived.

Man, this is only June 1917, but up here in northern Flanders, it is more hell than heaven!

Nice screenshots Olham. And I like to see the labels on sometimes and they see who we are up against.

Yes, we don't need to be "Full DiD" puristic about that, as long as we don't fly "Krauts vs Crumpets".

I find it always interesting to know whom I'm up against. It's easier for an Entente pilot to identify Jasta after their colours,

but as a German pilot, I would miss a lot. So, what the heck - I use them every now and then!

E.IIIs mainly-- they don't fly terribly well usually, though are quite deadly when they line up a shot because of their gun placement and heavy ammunition supply.

My god - a Nieuport 11 must be the opposite of an Albatros!!! Flying it, I feel like an autumn leaf in the storm,

getting tossed about!

And then comes this mad :censored: Roland C.II, which must be the German version of a Brisfit, and shoots my

kite to oblivion in a second! This craft is fragile as a butterfly! I admire the pilots who dared to fight in this!!!

Nieuport 24: Spring 1917

 

This was a particularly good mission as I managed to bag 5 Alb DIIIs in a patrol. Here is the N.24 taking off at the start of the mission.

Very nice Spad skin you've put together there nbryant. If you were to darken the natural lumber a bit and hunt down the matching fonts for the tail number and "C" it would be a dead ringer for the illustration you've posted. I love the weathering you've done on it.

 

:good:

SPAD VII of the Royal Flying Corps, Sainte-Marie-Capelle, December 1917

 

.......added shading to the aileron and elevator hinges, modified the C to to represent the drawing, added actual wood texture to the struts. Think I'm done......... yeah right! Loving this crap!

Wow - great job, nbryant! Welcome to the League of Skinners!

Possibly an Irish pilot - with this typical green? Or it's an early "Brunswick racing green"?

Whatever - well done.

You even did the same as I just have done with my little Nieuport: making new wooden struts.

You will see; after some more skins, you'll develop more and more ideas for this and that.

He was so young - but well, he died like Boelcke...

 

This Jasta 10 pilot had only just absolved his third sortie - a balloon defense near the Argonne forrest.

They had all returned without enemy contact. But strangely, one Albatros D.II was quite a bit behind the

others as if he had engine problems.

When they flew over the last waypoint, they just entered a thick white cloud, but he could recognise the

others turned away for their landing approach. So he banked his craft hard right, still in thick white haze,

to make a steep side slip - and chrashed into the rearmost flyer, which he had forgotten.

 

Both pilots fell out of the cloud without any controll about their wreckages. Seems the Albatros D.II was

not made for a monoplane test.

Thanks Olham. Already have begun. My SPAD XIII has various exhasut overlays, data plates, redone access panels to provide variation in the airframe. Not much of it shows in the pics but in-game, and knowing its there adds to it. More SPADs to come. Have started a Nieuport and Sop Camel as well.

@nbryant: great looking SPAD skin! are you going to make it available to the public?

 

 

Tried but the site tells me I am not authorized. ???? While I hash that out email me, nbryant58@gmail.com , and I will send it to you.
