P-47 D Skins

Recommended Posts

NO Prob my pleasure, This one is for MysticPuma....I started to redo my skins with the Alpha layers and finished 4 of them including the Big Stud. I redid the tail which gave me a headache and the serial number on the wing and also corrected the OD glare layer.

You are one prolific skinner Bugsy. I don't know how you work so fast and yet keep the quality at a high level. I putter along at a snail's pace in comparison.

Very WIP but. I wanted to make a very grungy 47 as if its been operating from very duty field without being cleaned up.

Wonderful job, yes I did write "job" because with this volume of work it is not a hobby anymore but nearly a job. Thanks for your contribution to this simulation. :salute:

The French had some pretty grungy looking ones since their P47s were second hands from the US. Picture for inspiration. :)

When I try to download it, after the 'behavior warning', a page opens filled with characters. Do I need to be registered?

7 skins of P47D's of G.C. 2/5 La Fayette, based at Luxeuil, N-E of France in 1945.
#32 was based at Ambérieu, France 1944.

 

The skins are as much as I could "historically accurate" but I allowed myself to pay tribute to Christian-Jacques Ehrengardt aka CJE, founder of the revue Aérojournal and a major contributor to the Aviation Passion forum of the Check Six website.
His name is on one of the planes.

 

EDIT : I rushed ... there is a bug in the roundel of the right wing.
I will update the pack in few days.

These are really excellent - thanks for sharing!

Thanks, I plan on starting another pack soon. I'm also open to custom work if anyone wants a personal skin, just pm me the information.

Hoss, thank you indeed!

 

Pat, you are my new best friend. Joyeux Noel a moi! Did you forgot the yellow stripes on #32 or did you elected to represent an another time period?

^^ yes there are two livreries for this plane. The yellow stripes were painted when GC2/5 was flying over Italy and were removed after that.

I made this skin with a profile and I didn't know this photo: #32 is bigger than I thought and the weathering is stronger than I made... Maybe I will do a 2nd version.

I'm glad I learned where these damn stripes came from. I might have an another angle of #32 as I had to skin it for an another game. You'll have to give me till next Sunday when I go home. Keep up being awesome.

I have a skin that has a red spinner, but when the engine starts it turns to grey/metal, does anyone know where the I guess the spinning spinner is located?

 

Cheers

I think I've done as much with this as I can. I'm sure some will see it as too unweathered looking but from the only picture I've seen of this airplane, it looked rather clean. Honestly, I prefer my NMF planes to look shiny anyway. As always, any constructive criticism or advise is welcomed. In a previous post in this thread I mentioned the background of this fighter such as it is.

Nothing wrong with having a clean bird. They were all brand new at some point. I think it looks great.

Let me know if those links are useful. Anyway they were all second hand p-47... So I guess they won't be that shiny

Hi, I have not done any research on my side yet. I want to finish other skins before starting these.
The model that you post sports a livery after the war. I would rather paint a plane that served during the war.

I don't think there were any P-47s that flew with the ACI during the war.

I decided to just combine them into one version. I can always make another version with more weathering and the nose art on both sides if you'd like.
