The DeHavilland is needed for my Irish Civil War scenario, it was used a bit in the war. I also need the:
Avro 504k
Bristol F.2b Fighter
Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard
Royal Aircraft Factory SE.5a

Very nice, I hope somebody makes these.

Oz, you're perfectly right, the Brewster Buffalo is not quite forgotten. Wyrm's Finnish Buffalo is purty darn good, actually.
Maybe he could make a US Marines version? Wyrm? ;)

The NATO designation is wrong! It's a Forger and the Russians used it until 1993 on their Kiev class carriers...

Mobilize, the S.E.5a already exists.
As far as the other planes go, I think the Bristol F.2b is definitely worth considering, but so is the Hawker Fury which can be considered an "advanced biplane" - the last first-line biplane fighters before the introduction of high-performance monoplanes in the late 1930's.

Great list of famous "less glamorous" aircraft. I would especially
like to see one of the many talented unit makers do the Skyraider!

Wyrm, I must commend you for all of your new units!
You seem to be almost one step ahead of me in making "forgotten" airplanes, like the Piaggio P.108 or the Amiot 354 and the Breguet Bre.691, not to mention your outstanding recent MiG's. Thank you so much! I am a big fan of your Art-Work... :)

That "ugly" aircraft you have in post 11 looks like an Italian Ba65, I got one, but not current plans on making it.

Yeah, it's a Breda Ba.65... the mainstay of the Regia Aeronautica in the 1930s and 1940s, used as a combat support / assault aircraft.

Any monkey can MOD a scenario. Not everyone can make a good unit
Good unit is nothing, game play is the best!

I for one would like to see you attempt to make a unit yourself. Then we'll see who will eat crow.
