Yes, I'm definately blind...

 

I have to scroll :blush:

 

Thanks a lot for enlighten me :)

 

BTW:

The Location of the parts in the template is clear, I will add the base and the Loop antenna as drawing layer in the Bf-109 G6 template. The base was painted also in the respective Camouflage colour, so just to make it easier ;)

Your definitely not blind RaFiGer judging by your superb skins, 20-20 vision and an eye for detail. Thank you for your time and effort providing the many detailed aircraft skins to the community . :salute:

Hi RaFiGer,

IMO, the base ( made of red brownish Bakelite) was left unpainted.

As seen, for example, on "Rote dreizehn", a well known G-6 flown by Ofw. Bartels’.

yes, I think you got a good point. I just review the pages regarding Bf-109 G6 from Jochen Prien & Peter Rodeike Bf-109 F,G & K series and yes, yes the base (Bakelit) was not painted, on some pictures you see that it was painted near the fuselage but that seems just for not covering it before painting :good:!

 

So, ok I leave it the brownish style the template provides! Thanks for the input :)

I'm right know doing 4 schemes based on the 7./JG 3 birds that was involved during the U.S.A.A.F. raids in September and October 1943, where Hauptmann langer after Shooting down a B17 was forced to bail out of his "White 1" and 4 planes dated January 1944 where the planes was painted with the White "Reichs Defence" marking.

I like the comet Symbol and the painting of these Bf-109 very much in the same way I will do the Bf-109 G6 of Alfred Surau with the yellow eyes on the "Beulen" and the yelow spinner.

 

 

Hoping to have the first Group (1943) and Suraus's plane ready by this Weekend :)

Allright, np! I was glad that you like them too ;)

 

Because of Pierres Input I intent to leave the Bakelit base and the dark Loop as it is, but I can include a layer for both to make it easier.Actually I have already (as you could see in the Picture) done it, but I have released up to now only an update for the corrected Alpha Layer, some minor corrections and of course the unlocking of the layers.

 

If you like I can add the "Peilrahmen" detai llayer seperate or in an update to the existing Version 002.

I posted this already under my skin post, but as a pusher for the Bf-190 G6 thread I do that post again :)

 

To much to do and so just to share I upload two of my new paint schemes for the Bf-109 G6. These are only two out of a series of all together ten paint schemes of planes flying with Jagdgeschwader 3 "Udet" during late 1943 till beginning of 1944.

The schemes are representing the most most successful unit in the "Reichsverteidigung" at this time sporting the Comet Squad of 7./JG 3 and the Exe Squadron of 9./JG 3.

JG 3 scores the most aerial victories in that time with only minor losses while other units takes heavy death toll by the USAAF and RAF bomber and fighter forces.

 

First one is the plane of Hauptmann Karl-Heinz Langer who scores his last victories with this plane before struck by defence fire of the bomber crew he bailed out on October 14th, 1943:

JG3-Bf-109-G6-White1.jpg.3bcbe086aa1f58efcc15a250eb0fd2cb.jpg

 

Bf-109-G6 "White 1" of 7./JG 3 flown by Hauptmann Karl Heinz Langer

 

Second one is the plane of Feldwebel Alfred Surau who scores his last victories with this plane before struck by defence fire of the bomber crew and died to his injuries in hospital on October 14th, 1943:

JG3-Bf-109-G6-Yellow6.jpg.3aa8709d18962153dc73a2615e849b76.jpg

 

Bf-109-G6 "Yellow 6" of 9./JG 3 flown by Feldwebel Alfred Surau

 

Some pictures of the planes in game:

Great works, RaFiGer!

But why do some of you guys use HDR? I find it makes strange psychedelic color effects - like on psilocybine.

You mean these green shine on the plane during flight?

 

I switched HDR it off now, and you're right the shine is gone! Now I'm really searching the optical benefit from HDR. Right now very difficult to point what is really better!

If someone wants to do this one only as G6, it looks really really cool.

And/or a historical one of 4./JG52

Unfort. I haven't found any G6s of that squadron. :/ Mabye you are more successful.

HDR means HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE of colors. IMHO it just makes additional color effects, which I call "psychedelic".

It has not positive use IMHO and I keep it switched off. Maybe I save some performance that way - no idea.

Auf dieser Seite von Mark Styling ist immerhin eine tolle G-6 von Erich Hartmann, 4./JG 52. Aber sonst müßte ich auch mal intensiver suchen.

Oops - in English pls... Yes, that skin looks cool - especially with that cat on the stabiliser! :salute:

I like the camo sheme, so I'll try it.

Thanks guys for your work.

 

Is it possible to delete that white color on the Spornrad? That would be nice!

 

Thanks in advance

Of course it is possible, you have that White ring as a layer in the template.

Normally I choose it if I have indication in a Profil or photograph, but I have it as standard so it is possible that I forget to disable the layer!

 

@MEO.Scharfi,

 

right know I been painting four Bf-109G from JG 52, the G2, G4 and G6 from Hans Waldmann and the G6 from Heinz Ewald. I have good photographic material and decals sets for these planes.

 

So, if Wolfram-Harms does the one you like these others will follow soon!

Thanks Rafiger, thats great.

 

I appreciate your work. I know you made great ones in the old days for 1946.

Scharfi SchutzEngelchen, your "Black 4" is ready now - I hope you like it. I do, and I will also use it.
I uploaded it to my MEDIAFIRE space, so everyone who wants it can grab it from there. Enjoy!

Thank you! With RaFiGer's excellent skin template it was a joy to make.

And you chose an interesting sheme - I also like it a lot.

Cool! Very unique pattern. Me likes :-)

Any chance someone of you skilled guys and gals could do this one of Guenther Rall ?

 

I wouldn´t mind if it also has the III.Gruppe symbol like in the kit below. Don´t know if that would be historical though.

Nice skin mate.

 

If you make any changes (like SchutzEngelchen describes it) to that skin is it possible to delete the white outline on the Spornrad and to have both versions with and without swastika?

 

 

Thank you.

Well, I'm not Father Christmas, or an "online skin shop", ladies and gents - I have other things to do in life.

If I feel like making a skin, I make one and usually don't hog it, but make it available for all to download and fly.

If some have problems with the full historical markings (swastika), then they should simply not download and use the skin - no problem.

I cannot understand, why people wanna fly a German WW2 fighter craft with a 30 mm cannon to kill Russian pilots with,

and then the same people are "butthurt" about the swastika. There was a war going on - it wasn't a playground, right?

...my gimp also doesn't open that file.

 

You could get yourself the free IRFANVIEW or DXTBmp to convert skins from DDS format to BMP.

Then you could work on the BMP and later put it into the public G-6 template, to get the Alpha layer again.

With DXTBmp you can then convert it into a DXT-5 file, for use in the sim.

Lovely skin Wolfram, I added it to my folder. :)

I've been putting together quite a few scale models and I cant imagine a ww2 German plane without this iconic symbol, I've even spent time adding swastikas to politically correct skins. xD

I'm working right now on a bunch of paintschemes for JG 3. The two I have released covering 7./JG 3 and 9./JG 3 will acompanied by around 10 more.

I will build a fake Scenario involving JG 1 and JG 3 fighter Mission against RAF an US Bombers raiding coastal installations and Support lines. One will cover Fw-190 A3 and Bf-109 F4 against Spitfires and Boston A20 Intruders and Bombers the other one will see JG Fw-190 A5/A6 with JG 3 Bf-109 G6 from II./JG 3 with their Comet and Eye wing.

 

So that's upcoming from my side :)

4/52s G6s and later are drab aircraft with crude mottle applications. All are devoid of the Cat I think you seek. That died on the very early Gs. All use a non embossed number to. Just plain ole white.

 

If you want a 4/52 G6 I'm happy to do you one but the limit of the imagination stretch is up to you. You can have it anyway you want from comic book stylized like the one above though to something more "used" - with or without cat - with or without embossed numbers.

 

Your choice.

Yes, i would rather prefer historical skins. Unfortunately I haven't found any of 4./JG52 in G4/G6(1943) area.
