I have begun a database and will be looking to skin for the 475th FG once I have an example made to play with in here. Good reading and examples so far. This is the basis of my research: http://475th.org/p-38/aircraft-listing. I see some of these in game already but would like to flush out individual skins per squaddie, per P-38.

Question: I don't see the P-38H making its way in AH at all as a stop gap production. These were what the 475th mostly flew first. Would it be totally verboten to have "H" skins on the G in game?

Not at all many G skins in game now are in fact H models.

Currently working on this Bf 110C skin:

ZG 26, 3U+FM, 1941 Balkans theatre. Grey/green/blue RLM 02/71/65 scheme with yellow theatre markings.

Also planning on doing, in no particular order and in-between other projects:

NG3, D5+DT, ETO nightfighter. All-black scheme with shark mouth nose art.

ZG1, "S", Russian front. Winter scheme over RLM 02/71/65, wasp nose art.

ZG 26, 3U+XS, North Africa. Brown scheme with green line camo.

Not 100% decided on the winter and desert choices, so these may change if I find something better.

This plane was an E model. Have you checked with Skuzzy about doing E's on our C? Last I heard, they were still deciding on adding an intermediate 110 and not accepting skins for the E or F.

I hadn't considered it since in AH terms the D and the E are pretty much the same as the C, only differing in detail. The F had more powerful engines and might be worth a separate variant.

I just talked with Skuzzy on this matter.Skins for D's and E's may be accepted after he does a review of the specific skin. He is mostly concerned about obvious shape differences since the planes have very similar performance to the C-4B. I don't foresee any problem with a skin as long as it does not have the tropical oil coolers - and even then we have tropical schemes on other models that lack tropical equipment. Hopefully, it will also prompt HTC to expand the available external stores to match the D and E.
