Thread: Commercial Aviation skins.....

  1. #1

    Default Commercial Aviation skins.....

    Ok folks, with the addition of Croydon, we (the community) need some “Commercial Aviation” skins for the Douglas DC-3 (C47 and Li-2), Junkers Ju52 and Ju88, Heinkel 111, Condor (FW-200), Pe-8, and other 'viable' in-game aircraft… to really give it that civilian airport look……(even though by 1939 commercial aviation was relocated away from Croydon)....

    ……Lufthansa (Germany)
    ……KLM (Dutch)
    ……Air France (France)
    ……Aero O/Y (Finland)
    ……Imperial Airways - British Overseas Airways Co (United Kingdom)
    ……Aeroflot (Russia)
    ……SwissAir (Switzerland)
    ……Linee Aeree Italiane (Italy)
    ……TWA (USA)
    ……Pan American World Airways (USA)
    ……Braniff Airways (USA)
    ……United Airlines (USA)

    …I can just see it now….. Oscar’s flying a Air France DC-3 flight from London (Croydon) to Paris (Orly) and the passengers are looking out the window at a dogfight over the channel……………

    For more about Croydon, see "Croydon Airport"

    Yes, its reffered as the "PD Turrent" and has dual mounted .30 cal guns.

    (Translation: PD Turrent is "Persecutor-Deacon Turrent)

    Thanks Wheels,

    I'll have to add them to my inventory.












    Some see the glass as half empty, some see it as half full. I see a glass that's too big.

    Some Lufthansa skins I found at flying legends.
    I couldn't find a way to link the page but i did download the skins for myself.
    If you want them Oscar, I can email them to you or you can ask Trapper for them.
    I have emailed them to him already.
