Mig-3 Series 24 Skins

Recommended Posts

Ok Borys I didn't what you were meaning about the painting demarcation.

I thought your prblem was the blur effect, not the position of the demarcation itself.

With pictures it's clear to me.

How do you do that ?

I tried somme attempts but I didn't get what you show.

Could you share your template ?

Here's the White 44 I mentioned I was working on.

 

23567861274_3b345aa9f1_b.jpg

 

I used the black camo interpretation from the Number 46 in the pic below.  All the paint was from the VVS Research site using the non-faded swatches.  They site mentioned the numbers possibly being silver however I did them in standard A-11 white.

Very awesome!  

 

I get a drop box 500 error message though :(

No problem Zargos :) I didn't mean any offense, just trying to be helpful :)

@ Zargos unfortunately Gimp has issues when exporting files to psd (huge files and reduced quality) so I hope this will do it (if not you can PM me):

What I am personally trying to figure out is where the inner textures for the cooler intakes and screw holes are settled since they still appear green on my skin.

Thank you 5tuka.

I didn't think it was that simple ... I'm going to try.

hmmm... not sure why the 500 error.   Maybe someone else can let me know if they are getting this also.

I tried again now and it works fine. Must have been something on my end before.

The coolers are in those two dark spots on the "shadow" map. Red in this image.

That looks pretty useful for skinners.

 

Do you mind sharing how to do the top image?

Here it is:

 

 

 

http://www.pumaszallas.hu/Private/VO101_Tom/Panel_Finder_by_Tom_2_2048x2048.jpg

 

 

Basically just add it as a layer over the skin, and save it as new skin, then check it with the skin viewer. Look what numbers and colors are mapped  on the area you are looking for, then see where they are on the template. 

 

 I like to use it together with the mapping from the outline layer, to pinpoint the exact part of the skin.

Also Zargos, the shadow on the cowling line is on everyone's skins not only yours. Even the default skin has the same line just not as visible. I think it was a mistake by whoever painted the original.

Could you post a picture of that ? I don't really understand what do you want to focus on.

Thanks.

It is outlined in red. It's on every skin everyone made including the stock skin. On yours it is only slightly darker. If you zoom in close on any skin you will see it. It is very faint on other skins though. You can see it very clear when you change skins and the computer thinks about it for a second and the plane turns into this while it is thinking. post-30291-0-79058800-1452351259_thumb.jpg

On the template where you see the sides of the cowling there is a blue stripe on the bottom of the green part. Make all of it green (or whatever color your skin uses on top) without the stripe. But you also have to color the tab for the wing root cooler tunnel.

These lines, probably :

Mi_G1.jpg

I rather think it's sth within the shadows layer. BTW the line in your picture is hidden in the "metal chips" layer (just incase sby's interested).

 

The Mig template is definetly a bit confusing but fortunately easy to work with once you figured all that stuff out.

Right but that line is where the demarcation line should be instead of where they put it in the template. When you look at the nose from directly below you can see a kink in those lines when they are supposed to be straight.

Is that closer to what you want?

nO0Bct7.jpg

Yes this is how it should look. If you notice now the demarcation line is in the correct place as well as being more clean and not so fuzzy. The only thing I could suggest is to not paint the black outline around the bottom of the wing root cooling ducts. The line from cowling and wing should go to roughly the center of the hole. The bottom of the duct should still be blue.

If you move the demarcation line to bottom of the cowling it will cover the shadow and the demarcation line will be in the correct place :)

Well I made further investigation and eventually find and correct the problem.

You'll see the results in my next screenshots.

I can't wait! If I could make a personal request, could you please some time make 7 IAP White 4 skin of yours from Il-2 1946? :)

Hi !

Here is my last Mig-3 : a plane from the 148th IAP involved in the battle of Kharkov.

It was impossible to make skin of Mig3 without making at least one with a patriotic tag !

It was not in my immediate projects, but I'll certainly make it one of these days.

I could make this skin from an existing one, but you that I don't like that two planes of the ZSF has the same weathering and paint chipping pattern.

So you'll have to be a little patient.

Hi Samson,

Thank for your support.

I don't say I was stopping skinning Migs ... I just say that I've something else to do before.

Don't worry there will be other Mig-3.

Cheers.

Hello,

 

Here is a quick view of my further Mig-3

 

The first one is a fantasy skin, for a non historical racer, just for the fun :

 

160111-MIG3-001.jpg

 

And the next is the "white 4" BorysVorobyov was talking about in its early stage of painting :

 

160111-MIG3-002.jpg

 

Cheers !

Next one will be sth fictional (usually I don't do fictional skins, but the sleek looking Mig just calls for it).

 

eu6ADkl.jpg

 

All metal parts (wing roots, engine cowling, ect) are meant to be polished bare metal (I need to improve on it to make it look more alike) while wooden pats and fabric are coloured wiht silver paint. The red stars have shiny silver paint coloured edges too. The red arrows are adopted from some historical Mig schemes. Still unsure what I should put on the wings though, I won't make it too colourfull though since this is meant to be a combat scheme, not aerobatic.

 

Don't know if I should make it public or keep as a personal... :scratch_one-s_head:

Hey can you make 40-43 and 45 and 47-50? That way we can have a full pack.

Anyone have a set of appropriate 0-9 number fonts?  color not an issue.  The one I put on is hand done, a little too time consuming.  I don't mind doing some touch up.

 

Here is another pic of 3.

Finally done.

 

I've been grounded for two weeks now due to a busted graphics card that made it imposible to finish my first MiG skin :( Tonight I got a replacement and brushed up the last few things on the skin and here it is:

 

post-13181-0-59155800-1452725616_thumb.jpg post-13181-0-63723700-1452726076_thumb.jpg post-13181-0-44133000-1452726093_thumb.jpg

 

As mentioned, it's a fictional skin with a fairly plausible makeshift 3-colour camouflage and a nod to the contemporary Woody Guthrie ;)

 

My first skin for BoS - in fact my first skin job in over 10 years. Let me know, what you think.

Great skin, Finkeren! From the results, these 10 years were spent cooking up skills rather than letting them rust. The Order of the Red Banner you placed on the fuselage gave it a nice touch too :)
