Hermann Graf, that's who.

 

 

 

 

This will be my second iteration of one of his mounts. Sadly my old one was removed for an unknown reason. I am making his Gelbe One, Bf-109F-4 from September 1942, Stalingrad.

 

Here's a preview of the special markings from his plane. They'll look better on the skin with all my custom effects I have added to the 777/1C template.

Mmmmm... Mate, Graf flew Bf109G-2 from late july 1942.

He had two aircrafts, "Gelbe 1" with rudder decorations, as his main, and a spare "Gelbe 11" without any rudder decorations.

Ah I can always count on you brother. What rudder picture do I have? I know it's not his late model G series with the white rudder. So I'm thinking the author at the museum website incorrectly named it as an F-4 from September. Ill be putting this skin out today on the correct plane. Can't wait for the E-7 and 110 templates.

Well it appears the "HG" motif with the Ritterkreuz is actually from his G-4. So, I cannot use it on this skin. It's a shame because I spent some time on it. Maybe I'll use it for IL-2:1946. And the "202" kill rudder is also from his G-4...I believe. I say that because of the G-2 versions I have found.

 

Anyway here is my rough draft. As you can see I have some small things to fix (placement of wing crosses, removal of ritterkreuz from wreath emblem, ect).  THANKS TO PANZERBAR FOR HIS RLM74/75 colors.

Well I corrected the camo but I need to line it up better and fill in the missing area on the starboard slat. As you can see it's really coming along.

 

 

Spoiler to conform with forum rules.

Is there any chance on you creating a master thread with all of your skins?

 

I am very particular to the styling of your work.

I think I already have one but I'll start another. I lost all of my original files. I only have the .DDS that are here on the forums. Let me see what I can do.
