Holy Cow! I actually have an unpublished repaint of Fr8ycat's OH-6 Cayuse for FS2004 using that exact aircraft and color scheme! I never did get a good image of the graphic on the upper cowling .You wouldn't happen to be able to zoom in on that would you?

Stoopy,

The Ca.113 is one of my favorites, but it's very hard to take good pictures of it, most often is heavily backlit.

Factory's chapel. Since the place also hosted a flying school, it was used in case of fatal accidents too

I wonder if this could be suited for squirrel hunting. The open cockpit leaves plenty of opportunity to shoot with your favorite handgun:

You really need a two-seater if you're going to do it right. Wink Without forward firing weapons, the pilot needs to focus on flying.

Ascout recommends a shotgun with big pellets for on-the-move skwirrel killin' from the air. Tough to hit a tree rat with a handgun in that situation, and there's too much at stake to miss. Twisted Evil
