    don't worry colors are always a bit hard to hit right - I use many times the work done by model makers as source for my skins and it is always interesting to see how many many ways there are to try to get just the right colors for each skin, of course, I have Photoshop that makes things so much easier while they have to mix real paint to achieve their results :D

    the colors are as accurate as I can make them under the game engine we have now without making the skin look ugly, and I am using the Il-2 color palette. and because they are being weathered by the template the colors change a lot during the process - they cannot retain the original color. but if we get an alpha channel for the normal template and and alpha channel for the specular template, then I can saturate the colors while retaining a glossy surface. this is a skin I'll release soon, which has to be a matt surface so that the brown color has a pleasant feel, which it would not had I made it glossy.

    looking forward to that ! the weathering is about 90% done - I have now to test it with the other skins I already made and edit it then so it works with all of them
