[WIP] RAAF No. 457 Squadron

Recommended Posts

hmmm I'd be really interested in that. I'm the XO for the virtual RAAF No457 Squadron which was set up back in 1999 for flying IL2 and has been transitioning to DCS World for quite a while (the Cliffs of Dover debacle moved us to DCS mostly but most of our members are pure WW2 only so the journey has been a long one relieved occasionally by CUP and Team Fusion patches. Only about a quarter of us like modern era jets).

 

Our CO and resident graphics artist is No457_Squog if you wanted to get in touch with him (via PM) and collaborate in the work of creating 457 squadron skins.

 

S!

I'm all for PTO Spits. With no Vs and VIIIs available, and XIV still on the distant horizon, the 457th-painted IXs will do :D. Can't wait for these.

Finally! I'll have a legitimate reason to shot down zeroes. That's Markindels Zero mod by the way. :smilewink:

Thanks for the heads-up! Looks like I will be skinning some zeroes as well :)

(Many thanks Markindels for making this possible.)

Looking good! I bet that Shark Mouth was fun...

 

Thanks VH-Rock! Lots of pixel pushing, load and re-loads. But worth it.

Spitfire ZP-X has four shark eyes. This is because the squadron had earlier painted a smaller shark mouth but later repainted it bigger with a new set of eyes. If you search "RAAF A58-600" you will see what I mean. This aircraft was special too because it was flown by both of the best aces in Australia.

S!

Is the 457 still active? Most of the Aussie squadrons for IL2 or DCS have disappeared. Very sad

Yes we certainly are although the group is not as large as IL2 days. We've been active for about 17-18 years running now. I've been XO since about 2010 ish.

 

 

Agree, it is sad to see the local community shrink over the years. I do occasionally see posts in these forums from ex members, it is always a good moment to see that they haven't lost their love of combat flight sims even if they do their flying elsewhere these days.

 

 

Cheers,

Stonehouse

Great job on these skins BrassEM, i was eyeballing them for a while but then i saw your post. I have almost completed Caldwells skin and will look at some more to do, hopefully we can build up a good Aussie collection. Once again well done on these.

Regards
