  1. Oh I see! First time I have ever seen this! Very strange! My finished P-47 skins do not have this issue.
  2. @Bo_Nidle Are you saying that even after unchecking the Bare metal and creating a paint layer dark grey, you are still getting a metallic shine? The alpha layer on the left is in two of my OD skins. The Alpha on the right is the default reflective P-47 alpha in the template
  3. 403 Sqn City of Calgary flown by Lynn Garrison post WWII http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3763-403-sqn-city-of-calgary-flown-by-lynn-garrison-post-wwii/
  4. @Megalax@Dookie_Monster While researching this post war North American Mustang Mk. IV, RCAF (Serial No. 9281), 403 Sqn http://silverhawkauthor.com/canadian-warplanes-3-the-second-world-war-and-postwar-north-american-p51-mustang_684.html flown by Lynn Garrison https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_surviving_North_American_P-51_Mustangs, I was expecting the markings to be AC but then in other pictures I found of it, the markings were PR. Then in a modelling kit I saw AD! Apparently RCAF post war markings became quite chaotic as expressed by this author in this excellent document! https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5ce2eac378733900016331b2/t/5cf13f8999db30000116a5f2/1559314314399/RCAF+Squadron+Postwar+Codes.pdf
  5. Yes this I know lol! I saw the typo a while back but decided it was too funny to correct
  6. Ok so I have created a version 2.0.0 to improve as per ICDP's observations. Details in my thread:
  7. Candyman Moose version 2 is now released here: http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3761-362ndfs-357thfg-candyman-moose/ Modifications: Better line up of Moose Antlers on upper canopy, smother edges along green and grey paint, markings now bear insignia white color, modifications to weathering and alpha channel. My previously released Spitfire can be found in the link below. I have the MkVb historical variant and MkIXe non historical: http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3760-il-2-spitfire-mkvb-mkixe-336th-4thfg-donnie-boy/
  8. 334th Boisee Bee Released for Remeberance Day: Although he did not fly the P-51D I still wanted to honor his memory in Il2 Battles. Read more below! As always created with ICDP template with moderate weathering. The most difficult part about releasing this airplane was the nose art which is on two separate sections of the template and had to be lined up at the pixel level Now located here: http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3759-334th-4thfg-boisee-bee/ http://www.americanairmuseum.com/person/47272 and here https://acesofww2.com/USA/aces/beeson/ and also here: http://www.littlefriends.co.uk/4th-fighter-group/
  9. My previously released P-47D-28 Boisee Bee is now here: http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3757-334th-4thfg-boisee-bee/ My previously released P-47D-28 Donnie Boy is now here: http://www.lockonfiles.com/files/file/3758-336th-4thfg-donnie-boy/

  11. Hey Bugsy , since we both bought this book, I just wanted to mention that the authors went through great lengths to capture the original colors and in some cases could not get the exact match and referred to the Federal Standard and explained their deviations from the standard. The PDF colors http://www.ak-masters.com/app/pdf/RCEquivalenceDIG.pdf differ from Cyber Modeler https://www.cybermodeler.com/color/ana_matrix.shtml The differences are not huge but if you take the color picker, you will see what I mean. I think converting these colors to RGB (HTML) is probably the culprit. It seems that this is what @ICDP used as a reference for his Camo. If you look down you will see the Bibliography from where they obtained their colors. Will the real color please stand up
  12. @361st_Bugsy Hey Bugsy I converted your PDF into a PSD https://www.mediafire.com/file/snevz4c1wcibcfe/RCEquivalenceDIG-1.psd/file I also created a PSD of the Federal Standard 595 Paint from here https://www.federalstandardcolor.com/ The book refers a lot to the FS. Just zoom in! https://www.mediafire.com/file/hyvmpzaqtooavct/Federal_Standard.psd/file
  13. @PatrickAWlsonIs there a wiki for PWCG? I am trying to figure out the purpose of adding Coop Pilots from the Administrator Coop Menu since you cannot populate those fields when creating a mission The Generator asks me to recreate the Pilots. The User Coop gets populated though which is great. Many Thanks!
  14. @Fish44Fish44 Even though I upgraded my joystick to the ThrustMaster Warthhog, I barely assigned any buttons and even then only for back up. I am 100% on Voice Attack with default IL2 Key Bindings. Problem solved 😎
  15. I had to fix one of my Squad mates P-38 Skin (Stel) so I uploaded V2 in the initial post.
