I guess this will please fans of the film.

EDIT : new link
http://www.gamefront...FDr1_GVB v2.zip" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.gamefront...FDr1_GVB v2.zip

Film from 1982. Jean-Paul Belmondo is "Joe Cavalier" :

in 1917 or 1918 he has a 8 minutes epic dogfight against Gunther (his future best friend, who'll help him save a kid and his family in 1936 …)

In a dire strait, Joe uses a smoke generator to escape his foe, making him believe his death.
See URL for the picture.
http://www.airbil.co...s/As-des-As.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.airbil.co...bs/cinema/Html% … des-As.htm

Then he comes back and cuts the DR1's upper and lower wings. Before landing, Gunther throws a net in Joe's propeler and tey en in a fistight when artilery starts firing in their area.

Here is a picture of Gunther's crashed DR1 with Belmondo standing before it.


EDIT : Changed yellow hue. Changed yellow scheme (no yellow under fuselage, goes further on the sides). Moved losanges (Welshie gave an URL where its location is better seen). Added the 30 victory marks. There is a white band along the engine cover.

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

As for why I made the skin : my 3 year old daughter watched the film 15 times maybe, and asked why Gunther's plane was not in my game !

I kept the default skin's green / in the film it is a little more gray with lighter streaks.
In the film the losanges on top overlap, not in my skin.

My daughter liked it as I made it, so I posted it as it is.

Anyway, did you know the film to start with ?
And do you want to arise the anger of my daughter ? :)

I think she also most see the difference, even I do, [and not only the colors].
But maybe in this case a K3, Barbie or hello Kitty would also be great for her.
Good luck and maybe she would be a new fly simmer, this scene needs new young players to survive, so keep her satisfed on this game.

:D

Well, it WAS a triplane to start with :)

As for the color, it's hard to guess the right one from the movie … and try to pause the film while the kid is watching !
Then I found the photo after I had made the skin.

Well, I thought, I could go over it all again to find the right ugly grey …

Looks like a totally different plane (besides the fact it's missing wings).

It's not missing a top wing (and You are correct, totally different plane), it's a replica Fokker Platz V17 (I believe it was never built, and only the plans exist that RC Model Flyers use to build the plane, but not sure, can't find much about it ?).
At the website here (scroll to the bottom), You will see the Replica Fokker DRI and the Fokker Platz V17 used in the movie

The yellow would be more sunflower like than lemon like ?

I may alter the green a little at the same time …

Do you think these color changes are OK ? as for the general scheme,
