MAS WWII Plane Pack

Postby Charles Lewis » Wed Jun 08, 2011 2:04 pm

I'm looking at putting together a plane pack to supplement MAS:WWII. This would be a PDF of 11 new plane sheets for use with MAS:WWII-MTO, and would be inexpensive.

The planes are:

Commonwealth: A-20 Wirraway, Halifax Mk. I, A-46 Boomerang
Germany: Me-323 Gigant, Hs.129B, Me-410A
Netherlands: D.XXI, G.1A
Poland: P.11C, P.23B, P.37B Los

Any takers?

Right now, work is on hold pending a software upgrade to keep up with my 64-bit system. I anticipate getting the pack together in a month or so. :)

No hurry and it'll get me an excuse to fire up a MAS campaign regardless 8)

With a shiny new copy of Illustrator CS5 humming along, work on the plane pack is off and running! :)

:lol:

I've finished the first one. I had forgotten what a pain it was creating the silhouettes.

I did indeed enjoy that. I knew about the EF-111 and the 1982 Syrian butt-wuppin but the rest were new to me and very interesting. 8)

If you have problems with the silhouettes, Charlie, just let me know. I am a bit rusty, but I think I could probably whip up the sils that you need in fairly rapid fashion if I had an hour to sit down and just start tracing.

Thanks, but I'm about halfway done. Another week of squeezing them in amongst other things, I should just about have the pack ready. :)

All 11 plane sheets are done. Next week will see the creation of the plane counters and some verbage to tie it all together and Plane Pack #1 will be ready. :)

Yes. Yes, you should. :wink:

For the benefit of all, I've just sent the files of Plane Pack 1 to Jay and Tyrel. :D

The files have been received and will be processed over the weekend to package them into a final mini-product. Unless things change this should be a $3.95 product that includes 11 planes and counters. We'll post a link when it is available for sale!
