Couple of (pretty much finished WIPs) - Prewar Silver I-BALI and a later early war version in Ivory with the Tricolours but without the Airline's name. Taken from a mix of references. The wing tricolours have been set to to scan green/white/red from left to right as you look at the aircraft from its 6. A lot of the pics of models and war thunder skins have the tricolour asymmetrical with the green ban to the outer of each wing - anyone say for sure which is correct?

Mr. Boo, I don't how or what to do to repay for the bullshrak I gave you back at the custom skin forums, not even the Lapino template didn't do justice.  I only have is a butch of template for the German planes and that it, that all I got.  I wish to say: "Whatever need BOO; just message me and I can show you what you taught me I'll show what I can do", but I can't that would sound like I being selfishly cocky.  Since this is a skins for Junkers, I'll try something (but I'll kick myself for doing it).

 

Oh yeah, I sincerely thank you so much BOO!

I though its going to be a nightmare, but I done it!  This will finally be enough (well I hoped), because this poor Junker got CHEESED!!!

 

Note: I don't know why I can't upload screenshot because of this "You are only allowed to upload 5mb." bollocks, included the whole files.

 

Can anyone help me get around this please.

 

 

The screenshot defaults to a bmp file. Open it in paint and save it as a jpeg or png and itll be well under the 5mb limit then.

you wont be able to upload the skins here I dont think.  Only screenshots - to host a skin for download you'll need something like a mediafire account to link to.

5 X 4K Italian Themed JU52s - Redone (bad template mojo previously) and now posted to the link below.

 

 

I-BALI Ala Littoria - prewar silver

I-BALI Ala Littoria - later - Overall Ivory with National Makings (some doubt about the order of the colour bands on the wings).

SM81 Inspired skin - pre-war 3 tone camouflage

SM81 Inspired skin - Ethiopian War 1936 with Hi Visibility wing marking to assist rescue in the event of a forced landing

 

Skins use 5tukas 4K template, national insignia was taken from ICDPd 4K Mc202 template and edited.  (thank you) . The zip contains both the 4K normal map and the skins. Simply unzip and copy the folder "data" directly into you main IL2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad folder.

The floatplane is likely a flight of fancy based on a Cant. I wasn't going to do another Italian skin but ive just come across I-BIZI in military colours (either two or three tone - reference colour plate sources dependent). It was one of four surviving Ju52s from Ala Littoria in 1940 that were transferred to military use (I-BERO, I-BOAN and I-BIOS being the others)

 

If I do it itll take some time given all the actuators on the wings will need to be blended into a complicated pattern. If I do it ill also do I-ABJZ in the civvy colours as this appears to be the only JU52 that retained its BMW engines.

Ju-52s with floats did exist, were used primarily in Norway and the Aegean sea.

Well then, accorded to this scale model it kinda does exist.

 

But.... Is it really the Italian A.R. Ju-52 or just a German lend-lease Ju-52-3m with floats:

The RA operated only four former Ala Littoria JU52s (see previous post) - no float planes. Modellers, like skinner, are not adverse to flights of fancy. 

 

A WIP for you

I-BIZI along with the 4 previous skins (now with the template layers as they should be - sorry) are available in the 4K section

Here it is:

 

 

 

 

 

Well now what do I do with this skin!:

 

 

 

 

Well this the last one, yet the funniest one ever!

 

 

 

 

Well I've return and a serious surprise for the BOO!

 

Updating will take less then seconds!

Beholden!!

 

I've return with an update that will rival my cheesiness and mistake combined.  This wouldn't been possible without that BOO, countless of days I'd hone and learn with countless hours of trials and errors.

 

Finally I've done it right, now I don't need to modified user made skin anymore.  Also this is my final thank you (I swear it is!), for all the sacrificed patience I'd put you through.  I'll make it up with this series of images of my personal plane and the plane that (finally) has you profile on it (still wish to upload that skin of the Ju-52 personally), but all I can do now is to show what I finally cook up with the lessons you taught me (plus other forums and youtube tutorials) to show you:    "I fully Appreciated your patience, your hospitality, and tough love."

That 109 with the Japanese meatball is my personal plane, the one with the twin is the Boo's Flying Hospital.

That would be the CANT.506 (and the heavy variant, the CANT.509). When looking at the Wikipedia page, the main image of the CANT.506 has a very distinctive set of markings.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CANT_Z.506   Any ideas what those colours should be?

No wire frame but lots of lovely corrugations ;-) The Ju52 is lovely using 5kuka's 4K and SPECIFICALLY his template with his normal map. 

 

I have a layer for the 4K dedicated to ID-ing all those actuators on the wings and elevators if you want it.

Yes, that's the template I have. I'll begin with a very simple civilian ship, I don't need messing with the actuators, but thank you, BOO, maybe I'll ask you later. And what's the use of the normal map, I never touched it, it's kind of a relief map, isn't it? Has it any use for the skinner?  Thanks in advance for your patience, I'm sure this questions are sufficiently explained in this forum. :happy:

The normal map brings out the lumps and bumps as you say. You can alter it yourself but TBH, 5Kuka, RafiGer, ICDP, Zargos etc all have created great versions already. For the skinner its a little less passive then you might think though. The Alpha does respond to the Normal map. So adding a little more gloss/shine/reflection in areas where there is some stressed metal can turn a relativity flat looking skin into something with a bit more life.  But its a balance.

Bruno Schnapps? :lol:  Ich habe sehr gelacht!

And dont let Max Raabe see the cover of the scale kit ;)

You guys are having way too much fun doing this. Knock it off!

Really, though....nice skins. I don't have the JU-52. But a question, anyway. Can it carry bombs? It was used as a bomber in Spain, so I'm wondering. Could make a good  tri-motored Italian bomber stand in. Could make for some fun missions with the Macchi escorting Italian bombers.

It can only drop supply canisters (via parachute) or drop paratroops. It can also unload cargo crates on the ground. There are no bombs in the BoX version of the Ju 52/3m g4e.

        "Could find my way to Mariana
        On a wave of mutilation"

 

Yes, my friends, our Wave of Mutilation has arrived in the deepest point of the oceans, the Marianas Trench at a depth of 36,000 feet. They found a plastic bag. But investigation took a new twist when detectives Benson and Tutuola, from Special Plastics Unit, declared that the thing was not a bag but a chewing gum wrap, possibly from mid-fifties. It took 60 years to sink to the bottom of the matter. Main suspect is Samson Kalai-Carganico, a papuan-german pilot who used to fly that route aboard his Junkers. Preposterous way to introduce a skin? Yes, I know.

 

Historical civilian skin, well documented in some sites:

Its kinda the VW Beetle of the sky (but without the propensity to drown it passengers if you taxi through a ford - we had two in 70s - one went most of time the other some of the time. The dad always parked uphill just in case -  both had paddling pools in the rear!!)

Mythical Beetle of hippy and Ted Bundy fame, only surpassed, if you will allow me to say so, by her sister the VW Bus. My daddy never had one, but he still boarded an operative Ju-52 while on military service. They survived with the Spanish air force until 1978!

God bless the Spanish without whom the Battle of Britain film would have been a festival of Me108s, DC3s and Texans!! I seem to recall they offered their services for free but asked the film-makers for a charitable donation to an orphanage (??) - the makers paid £1700.

Text is in swedish, but she made an emergency landing in Sweden, after re-supplying german troops in the Narvik area.

My dad was 15 at the time, and helped prepare a runway for it to taks off again. I think she ended up on the eastern front.

 

Thanks for the link to the story. Quite interesting.

Its a shame that it was returned, but I guess it was part of the neutrality pact with Nazi-Germany at the time.

They were produced well into the 50s and Officially retired in 1973, with 236 built I find it hardly credible that only 14 Survive when they were already historic in the 60s. I also know for Fact that somewhere in Spain there are a whole bunch of Brand New German Planes in Crates rescued from Libya not too long ago. Considering the General Way Spain appears to Function, I don't think you guys were too eager to recycle a lot of Aircraft, but maybe I'm wrong.

@melkarth I would like to THANK you so much for your Tante Ju Skins.

Each time I see a skin from you, it makes me happy.

As a Junkers 52 fan and other transport/liaison planes, I love how you make original and unique skins. It makes Tante Ju even more better!

To add more, you make a sweet story! 

Please continue. I will always be thankful for each single skin of yours (and other Tante Ju skinners) 

I am sure I am not the only one!
