I like the Turkish Fulcrum a lot.  :thumbsup: Is there an alternative skin from the final Turkish F-4 livery available? This should look good, too?!

Focke-Wulf Project II - Jagdgeschwader 27, Luftwaffe 1946











A bit quick and dirty this one in so much that I haven't bothered with panel lines. This is one of the older Luft'46 aircraft available in 'Strike Fighters' and it's a tricky beast to fly... in fact, I've yet to take off and the screenshots are of my 'AI' flown wingman!

North American F-107E Ultra Sabre - 492nd TFS, 48th TFW, USAFE, 1988









The F-107 will never win any beauty contests but I reckon it would look ace with the intake in the ventral position. Anyway, this is the F-107A 3D model by 'FastCargo' who also released an upgraded F-107C for SF2 which included this 'Hill' scheme which I've added to the SF1 F-107A and re-decaled to create a Lakenheath machine but I can't help feel that they'd have much rather kept their F-4D's! When I move back to SF2 I'll come back to this one.

Wow.  The 107 is one of my favorites, and I've liked your previous versions.  Just saw one at the USAF museum the other day.  This one is sharp!

Oooooh, terrific! I just wish the -107 had been real!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Tres Sweet! Would it be possible to reskin it in CAF Symmetrical Green?

Not really. AFAIK there isn't a template and whilst I'll often make my own from scratch it ties me up for hours (and sometimes days!) and I just like to jump onto something else. When I move back to SF2 I might take another look.

Northrop F-17C Cobra - 555th Tactical Fighter Squadron, USAF, 1980













This is a normal F-18A with a SEA skin by 'EricJ' a real F-18 aficionado. I decided to create an F-17C which had the same growth transition that the real YF-17 had on it's journey to become the F-18 and show it with 'Triple Nickel' markings in some sort of extended Vietnam war scenario.

Okay, I have to say it, during Vietnam the Tail Code for the 555th TFS was "OY", the "JV" Tail Code was for the 469th TFS, and the 42nd TEWS.
