Unless there is a good reason for this ; could you please remove Dutch Air Force markings from the Ju-88P ??

Not only is it historically incorrect, but almost insulting. The Netherlands fought the Germans in May 1940 and many pilots kept on fighting in the RAF, RAAF, RNEIAF (East Indies) etc over Europe and the Pacific against Axis after the surrender (bombing of Rotterdam).

As far as I know only 1 or 2 a dozen Dutch pilots joined the Luftwaffe, but did never use Dutch national markings.

I have mentioned this before, but never got a reply. Also made suggestions for various airplanes that could actually have Dutch paintjobs, like F2A, P-36 (Hawk model 75), P-40, Hurricane ...

I just received a response from the developers - they promise to remove it because from a historical point of view it is wrong, you was right.  Thanks again for paying attention.
