It’s what the photo said on the side of the aircraft. Maybe the ‘N’ got rubbed off.

Hello,

 

I made the Knights Cross Variants you find sometimes on the German Kill markings on German Fighters so if you need them for your skin Projects feel free to use them. The Kill number below is according to the career mode. Please note that the Markings are inspired by real world marking but not historical accurate.

Please find the psd. files in the zip attachment

Best Regards

Ostrich

Does anyone have a an example of a cyrillic "Death to facists!" layer/image/outline they can share?

 

I'm thinking that someone, somewhere, has slapped this on an aircraft and can extract and share that element from an unflattened file.

 

Thanks!

I just received this book and I have to say its very well put together and I think it's worth every cent. It's loaded with pictures I've never seen before and I have a ton of books to say the least. I'm in no way being given anything for this but if your a model builder, skinner, or WWII aviation enthusiast then this is a must have book. I am very happy with this purchase. If you buy this book I highly recommend you get it from the company and not a retailer. You'll get it a lot faster. Took me 5 days...

I came across a fair bit of old skinning resources on a hard drive recently and when I say old, I mean going back some 15 years plus :)

 

So thinking some of this stuff is good, still relevant and might help someone here I opted to upload some as I couldn't find any working links.

 

Starting with some .psd templates for national insignia and lettering by an Italian fellow called Alx, who had/has a web site called Wings and Coffee main page is still up but no sign of downloads.

 

Seven little templates all in one handy 1 megabyte zip file

Your welcome. If only one person got some benefit out of it, then it was worth the small amount of time it took to do. I will put up more, but need to check who the authors are and if they are still available elsewhere or just lost. I don't want upset anyone, so this could take a little time.

 

The next one is credited to a guy called Mr.Big. Do a search for that and all sorts of nonsense pops out and up, as I just found out :biggrin:

US color swatches from the 1930's -1940. I have zero recollection where I came by these, but I put them together in a little Photoshop .psd to keep them together and make then easy to use in Photoshop.

 

Could help make a cool retro paint job on a P-39 or whatever, with the meatball roundels on yellow wings / blue fuse?

If you've been looking for a Cyrillic font , here's something you may find interesting.

 

I just ran into this project that was released a mere 15 days ago, where the graffiti soviet soldiers left on the Reichstag building, Berlin back in May 1945 has been turned into a truetype front. I think it's a pretty cool thing to do and may make a for an interesting base to do VVS codes or inscriptions.

The soldiers handwriting taken from photos has been turned into this "May" font.

HERE is a P'shop document with Brit Layers for the Mustang. It includes the Sky Fuselage Band (NOT as straightforward as you would imagine!!), Alternative Brit Roundels (with the two-colour upper wing roundel), The yellow wing ID stripes and the OD and Grey camouflage (sorry, the upper is in one layer).

I hope this gives someone some help...

Thought this would be of interest to some folks here. I already pre-ordered mine but this book is a must have for skinners if you ask me.... Real Colors of WWII Aircraft

 

https://ak-interactive.com/product/real-colors-of-wwii-aircraft/

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 :)
