I know it's a long shot but I was hoping that one of the "lifers" still might have the skin in their archives. It was originally uploaded to the old IL-2 skins website.

There is a link to the skin at Keith77's old webpage at the Internet Archive but unfortunately it leads nowhere.
web.archive.org/web/20.../keithb77/
(click on the "IL2/Pacific Fighters" link.)

I did find this thread at check six from 2004 by Dunmer discussing 236 squadron Beaufighters that might include the skin in question but once again the links in the thread lead to the now defunct IL-2 skins website.
Beaufighter RAF, Squadron 236 en juin 44: www.checksix-forums.co...p;t=101283



The skin I am trying to find was used on a Beaufighter Mk21 for the "Convoy strike at Le Havre" download.

Convoy strike at Le Havre: www.mission4today.com/...amp;id=739

I opened the .mis file and found the file name for the skin.
Filename: Beaufighter_236-Sqd.bmp

I think I might be able to help.
I have just checked the HD and come up with three skins whose file names are:

BeaufighterMK21_mKX-236sq-06-44-MBT-nostripes

MKX-236sq-06-44-MBT-nostripes

MKX-236sq-06-44-MBT-stripes

They are all on a Jesters-Ink Beaufighter MK. 21 template and each one is credited to Flying Dunmer


Any help?

Bill

Stop the press! On further investigation - having opened my eyes - I have found the file as named in your post.

Beaufighter_236-sqd

Found some 236 Squadron skins here:

downloads.flightsimfil...egory/38/1

Unfortunately, the two single-skin files, with no blanks, are the only 236 Sqdn skins available at flightsimfiles.

Thanks for taking the time to look Bill. I would love to get a copy of each skin.

Check your PM's please.

Thanks for the link.
I couldn't find the one I needed for the mission but I will be downloading them since they are some nice skins for the Beaufighter.
