Admiring a machine as an aviation enthusiast is a helluva lot different than flying it in it's historical context.

But again, you guys know that.

There's an Avia S-199-inspired default Israeli skin available for 109, by the way

Anton got its official template released only recently, so the number of custom skins made by community is still limited, but there are already quite a few non-German ones.

Dora is in the worst situation - despite being released 6 years ago, it still doesn't have up-to-date official template and most of the old custom skins available for it (and there were crapton of them made back in the day) are not compatible with with 2.5.x+. It does have single USAAF, RAF and VVS default livery, though.
Thank you, @art-j

I will check it out during the Kurfurst's free trial and see how it all works in aerobatics/free flight servers in MP.

(And oooh, and Israeli skin? Haha. Sweet.)

You can also find some in my user files (link in signature)


You could even use my historical skins without swastika (description for details) - at least if you aren´t bothered by the Balkenkreuz

Fantasy skins. Captured skins. Air racing skins. Hell, I don't care if it's Hello Kitty and My Pretty Pony. Be a helluva lot better than the options available.
Yeah, as others pointed out there's nothing ''nazi'' about these skins, for starters. It's the same emblem they've used for the last hundred years and still use today. Do you have a similar dislike for the Japanese Rising Sun? They had camps and committed war crimes, too. Or what about the 1940s USAF roundel? Does that offend you? Last I checked carpet bombing cities (ie intentional targeting of civilians) in Germany, Japan, and Vietnam would be considered war crimes in most places except the US. In fact, I distinctly remember the ''Nazis'' being prosecuted for doing exactly that in Spain and Britain.

''Not a fan of Nazis''
Nor of history or common sense, apparently. Double standards much?

If there are default non-Nazi liveries, can they be used on servers regardless of nationality? (I'm not talking about historical WWII combat servers, but aerobatic and practice servers. On the WWII servers, I just won't fly for that side. Don't care how lopsided the teams are. Maybe I'm a bit old fashioned, but I'm not a big fan of Nazis.)

While I understand my position may not be the popular one around here, I'm just saying I'm perfectly willing to pay for and even fly these planes. Provided they aren't decorated like a Nazi Christmas tree.

And for the record, I'm familiar with the Finnish skin. For German planes as well as for that abomination someone fashioned for the I-16.

Also, it's easier for me to just not buy the things than learn how to make my own liveries.

I understand your loathing for the Nazis yet you are ok with the Japanese ?
