Lovely artwork!! Keep up the great skin guys.

BTW...just a question to install your piece of arts: I don't find any C202 skin folder into  C:\Program Files (x86)\1C Game Studios\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\graphics\skins folder.

Do I need to creat it manually? Does the folder need a specific name?

Thanks

Those italian smoke rings are nice but a skinner's nightmare ;)

 

If you look at the photo of the MC202 on Wikipedia the smoke rings aren't really rings...

After playing around with the Macchi template some more I felt like the initial version of my personal ride (posted in another thread), although patterned after one of the skins 378 Sq. used in Sicily, just looked a little too "muddy" and un-Italian (i.e., not flashy enough) when done in my muted naval colors, so I came up with an experimental Regia Marina naval "sparkle" camo pattern, intended to resemble the sun-reflecting look of the Mediterranean on a typical sunny day (for use by my Italian aviator from the Regia Marina on detached duty serving with TG-55, primarily tasked with anti-shipping and waterborne supply interdiction missions on the Stalingrad front):

 

Summer:

BoS%20-%20Panther%20Macchi%20New%20Summe

 

 

Early Winter (the Germans in the unit my Italian pilot was attached to were not very generous to their Italian allies when it came to sharing their scarce supply of white paint, in the early days of the winter):

BoS%20-%20Panther%20Macchi%20Early%20Win

 

 

Late Winter (when supplies of white paint were finally replenished, there was enough left over for the Italian allies):

BoS%20-%20Panther%20Macchi%20Late%20Wint

Oh my :o: ...Vig and Babuino...I could get crazy with your beautiful skin.

Any way to make any request? :happy:

You know...I'm italian and I love the Folgore....

By the way Vig...hope you don't mind..there is just a note about your great skin. The area under the nose and the rear fuselage should be painted in Dark Olive Green, like the upper side of the fuselage; the Light Blue Gray underwing area extending under the nose and in the rear of fuselage till the stabilizer was a tipycal Breda factory scheme, not used for all the Folgore production. (Macchi, Breda and SAI factory had a slightly different paintscheme....you know...crazy italian)

The color profiles explaining the different camouflages posted by Vespa come from "The Macchi MC.202 Folgore - A technical guide" by Maurizio Di Terlizzi published by Valiant.

Highly recommanded.

You r right Pierre, the latest book wrote by my friend Di Tertlizzi is great. Also there are some books by our teammate Ferdinando D'Amico too and a great book "Colori e schemi mimetici of the Regia Aeroinautica" published by our  GAVS association, but this latest one is impossible to find being sold out

Great work so far Pierre...and, I know...it's a pain painting with no references on texture...

Patience is a virtue...

A big salute to Ferdinando !

Sure...do you know him? Can I say that Pierre salute him? He will recognize you?

Yes I do.

I had the pleasure to work with him ten years ago for one of his books (with Gabriele Valentini) : Camouflage & Markings of ANR - 1943-1945, published by Classics :)
