Naming the Squadron

Post by Dukely on Mon Oct 06, 2014 1:32 am

Zebra suggested the Dukely Ducks which I though that was pretty funny but I wanted to hear some suggestions from everyone.

It´s a name I would be willing to fly under, as a zebra.

But like I said, elsewhere, I don´t really need a name and off course, there is always the classic "the twenty minuteers" which so far has proven to be true in the test mission ;=)

Since I am new, I will be happy with any squadron name you decide on. Just let me know what the squadron symbol is so I can have my ground crew paint it on my plane.

Okay, I will throw some ideas out in the spirit of brainstorming.

The Fighting Penguins
Dukely's Dodo Birds (a bit too long for a name, I think)
Dukely's Mad Capped Menagerie
The Flying Inebriates

Some good suggestions, thanks! We have stuck with Dukely Ducks but tend to refer to our squad as Duck Squadron. We use *DD* as a designation online. We don't have a logo. I really need to hire an artist...

It's definitely catchy, and much better than something like The Clay Pigeons.

Hi all,

I really like « Dukely Ducks » Squadron for the Entente side.
And something like « Dukely Jagdstaffel 4 or Dukely Jasta 4 » for the Central side.

--- Question to all pilots ---
If I would try out the skinning of a plane for our Squadron,...
Which plane from the Entente side would be your first choice.
Remember that it need's to be available for all the pilots in the Squad.

Dukely, can I ask what font you use for your logo «Dukely» (or is it a drawing) inside your videos series?
I'm looking between putting this on the planes or a insignia like (eg: duck) many famous squadron had.
For now, I'm starting some reading on the subject and got most of the PSD templates of the planes from the ROF useful materials.
If the Entente plane goes well, we might have a Central plane with more colors like Jasta had in 1917-1918! Wink

Cheers

Oh sounds cool! I use a font called Von Dutch. It can be a pain with some letters though.

Great, I will try to use it for the first draft of the plane (to be decided by all)...
Let me know also your choice Dukely Wink

Cheers
