Ok, definitely yes, but why is it being used with the GB version of the Nie.17? Why not the French version. This makes no sense to me.

It is wrong to think that there were a "British" or a "French" version of the Nieuport. RFC prefered the Lewis over the Vickers, and the french the contrary. Some early French Nieuport 17 also only carried the Lewis, althought it seems that the N124 used Vickers or Vickers+Lewis Nieuports.

There is no French or British version. There was the N17, some had one Vickers, some one Lewis, some both. Are you saying it's unhistorical because none of the N124 machines had just one Lewis? I doubt that.

Exactly, it as both you and actionjoe said, there's just the Nie.17. Sorry if I wasn't clear, and apologies if I came off negative.
As has been said, when it comes to the LE you have Vickers only, Lewis only, and combo mountings. This is a BEAUTIFUL skin, and I love it. (I've never understood the GB vs. French Nie.17 in the game. I wonder why they just didn't give us weapons options AND different skins? I would have thought it would save time/effort, but then I'm not a programmer.) :oops:
Anyway, I'm surprised this wasn't done long ago, but glad it is now.

Warren

PS: Actionjoe, if memory serves me correctly, some of the very early Nie.17's had an overwing Lewis only, I'd have to go dig out my books, reference sources, etc. The early ones, like this, were in the green/green or green/brown camo scheme as well, before the FAS required the application of the enduit metallaise.

IIRC, in some previous work on the career mode, Luke or J.j. or somebody similar told me which French units flew the Lewis-only version of the N17 (the one labeled in the game as the N17B) and they indicated that Esc. N124 was not one of those units. That's why I did not create any N17B versions of any of the Esc.N124 N17 skins already in the game when I was doing updated versions of N17B skins for those other French units.

However, I do not have the original research/reference materials on which those statements were based and simply took their word for it, so I can't say for sure that Esc. N124 should not have any N17B skins available.

Panthercules,
You do some seriously beautiful work on these skins of yours, I really have to look into downloading some and getting a new PC so I can run the sim's graphics as I should.

Do you want or need Nieuport markings information for the LE, research, etc?

Thank you for the kind words. I'm always looking for more research/reference materials for new RoF skinning projects, whether for more career mode skins or more PWCG skins, so I'd be happy to see whatever you might have that you'd be able to share.

Let me see what I can get up.

As a side note, I haven't been able to access the forum from my home PC since Sunday. Weird, it's like I've been banned or something. I'm posting now from my work PC (Shhhh! Don't tell!) I can access the RoF site, and all associated pages except the forum. I've dumped my history, cache, etc.

I don't get it.

I'll try to see what I can dig up.
