    Occasionally, I'll post a screenshot that has an unusual skin on my Bf109G2. A few folks have asked me if they are WWI. The answer is yes, they are.

    The other question I get asked, is how many? The answer to that, is about 75 complete with a handful of half completed ones.

    And one other popular question is, why? Long story, but I'll just say that the Albatros has a close resemblance to the Bf109, and that got me thinking about how a WWI skin would look on a '109...I tried it and thought it was cool...the rest is history :lol:

    I thought I might post a few here, in a thread, but decided instead to make sort of a video that has about 60 in the collection.

    You can see it here:

    Thanks, glad everyone likes 'em!

    This was one of those projects where I thought "yeah, I'll try one and see"...well, it kind took on a life of it's own and "one" turned into quite a few! :lol:

    Not so much online anymore, but when I did, it was through a hosted game among friends.

    It's been forever since I went to any game servers, to be honest, I really got tired of all the drama in those places...

    These days I just run offline missions :(
