Wow! A very nice skinpack. Switzerland is one of the best places to be born, in my opinion. Scarsdale New York looks like a second rate dump, when I compare my village to some of those Swiss villages. A very depressing thought when you consider that Scarsdale is one of the top ten wealthiest suburbs of the USA. If any of the ROF community lives in Switerland, you are lucky and congratulations. I hope that one day my people will take the US quality of life half as seriously as the Swiss do their own. The American ROF'ers angry about what I just wrote, unless utterly ultra rich, should all take their meds or learn to think, because only a an ultra rich person, a mentally ill person, or an utter moron, would support doing more with less, so a few persons can be ultra rich.

;)

Your skinpack also reminds me of one of my favorite Mirage III videos, found here:

Please throw up a poll for it if you want us to vote for it.

My vote would have to be a yes; nice work! (Who knew, crosses on a post war Central Plane.)

I've added the poll for you (and moved this to the proper subforum section).

 

Do you have any historical references you can share regarding these aircraft?

It might be because it is post war or it is Swiss.

Well if you want real Swiss airforce during that time, I guess it looked like this:

 

 

The founder, Oskar Bider had to bring his own aircraft...

 

Still I like the skins.

I suspect that for at least a few folks it might be because there are no historical references provided for these - I know I like to check the skins against the references to see if I think they're accurately/adequately reflecting the historical evidence or if maybe some suggestions could be made for some adjustments that might make them better.

Finding references not to hard http://www.aerofile....ss/?page_id=634, but the only problem I see is that their not the same DVII we have in ROF. All the pictures I've seen they have 2 stringers on the sides.

Yes, the planes were for sure a bit different, as most of the Swiss' D.VII were produced in the Netherlands after the war. You can it (along withe a HD-1 and a N.28; we have both of their skins in the RoF) them on the 360° viewer ofthe Swiss airforce Museum here:

Fotos of them here:

 

D.VII

N.28 (we have that skin)

25.jpg

 

So I think the skins come close to what they looked like. But as said, Antony sold them from 1920 to 1928. I doubt they were all the same as 1918 models, both in constuction and most certainly the engine.

 

The exhaust stack differs a lot from the Mercedes D IIIa shown here:

Circling, Circling, in the sun.  Desperately trying to use my gun.  Up and down and around about.  Left and right I through my Scout.  When I had that Hun, on the run.  My little Newport she spun.  Down and down, with speed I went.  Into the ground, without wings I was sent.  In the mess the empty chair is set.  My flying time is spent.

LOL - chalk another one up to the confusion of the switch to the new Forum platform.  Didn't even notice the original date - when I saw the necro post from SwissAviatic pop this up as "new content" I just thought the whole thread was new.  Oh well.  Makes me wonder what I was doing two years ago to have missed this one back then - guess I just didn't see it when it was posted in the wrong forum section back then.

 

Can't process this one as the D/L pack doesn't have the necessary files in it, so I'll lock this one up for now.  If the OP wants to supplement the package with the necessary files, just PM me and I'll be happy to open it back up and process the submission at that point.
