RAPTORATTACKER'S SKINHOUSE

Recommended Posts

Hi Raptor!

 

I have a request for some 1942 RAF Bostons (A-20b) for a future video on the Eindhoven Raid. If you could make any of these it would be greatly appreciated. Please take your time if you decide to do any, as I will have to wait for the Mosquito to make this operation possible!

 

Also, I have had a hard time finding any 3 SQN Tempest skins from 1945, if you could direct me to any it would be a big help. Thanks!

 

Lemsip

The little info i could get is that this particular Mustang belonged to the "Scorpion" Sqn based at Ramat David in the early to mid 50s. Those yellow and black stripes were used by the allies and U.N. forces during the Suez crisis in 1956. Thus it would denote that this scheme is from October 1956.

 

Hope it helps and thank you for considering doing it!

 

:cool:  

 

And at the risk of being a noodge i wonder if you had seen my reply to your post about the Israeli P-51, in case it got buried among the rest of the posts in this thread.

If you had, i apologize for my relative lack of patience...It's 42 you know, the answer to life, the universe and everything...and my personal flying number in the past 20 years.

Thanks in advance if you decide to do it and if for some reason you choose not to, then thank you for considering and cheers!

 

:good:

I'll get around to it, no worries! I've quite a bit on at the moment, what with one thing and another. You ARE on the list, don't worry! By the way, did you get anywhere with the Squadron badge on the starboard cowling?

Something along these lines? I know it's '44 not '45 but...http://www.airpages.ru/eng/uk/temp5.shtml

 

While I think about it, here's something for everyone!

Rap's Dirty Fokker!

 

 

 

See? It IS in a state. 

As it says in the description, it was found in the 50's (1951 I believe) and the fabric was in a less than airworthy condition but

Count von Raptoffen's son was NO respecter of his own safety! His wife was involved in some of the camerawork, by the way...

Happily, i have just now!

The Scorpion Sqn was/is the 105th Sqn and the image below is the way it looked in the Suez campaign in 1956.

I hope it's large and clear enough for your needs-that's the best i could find.

Thank you again, very much and i shall be a model of patience now...:salute:

I was LITERALLY just laying that image into Photoshop onto the Mustang and I came in here to check something out!! Thanks anyway. The image isn't quite how it appears on the pictures of the model that I'm working off but hey, it'll do the job!

According to my research that badge on the model is not historically correct and is actually copied from the badge sewn to the pilot's uniforms and flight jackets, but that is not at all an issue and from what i have seen very few of the squadron's ponies had the insignia painted on them...but again that is no biggie at all and would not detract one iota from my gratitude to you, Sir! In any case isn't there a proverb about not checking a gift horse's (or pony in this case) teeth?...:lol:

A bit of target practice with my new VKB Gladiator Mk II stick. It works for me, that's all I'll say. It's heavily edited but all the shots/kills are in sequence and none are omitted, scout's honour!!

;)

 

and some more...

... and yet more (bombing this time)

Out for a spin in the Halbie with Oskar in the back and... @StG77_HvB you might like this little jaunt!!

Sopwith Camel

This classic Sopwith Camel was found in a derelict shed whilst preparing a site for redevelopment just on the outskirts of Weybridge, Essex, in the south of England.

Originally the area was an RFC airfield that was used specifically for the testing of newly-built aircraft from the Sopwith Aviation works at nearby Brooklands,

the famous but now disused motor-racing track.

 

 

 

The skin, should you for some ludicrous reason want it, can be downloaded HERE

Big thanks to @ICDP and Yugra Media for the template.

Enjoy and feel free to scratch the paint (some MORE)!!

EDIT: THE FIRST LINK WASN'T THE CORRECT ONE SO IF YOU'VE DOWNLOADED IT (FOR SOME REASON!!) PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD!!

18:00 HRS

Sorreeee!!!

I spent the money on a cup of coffee and then made this while I was drinking it! :popcorm: I kinda got right into the shaking effect when the guns are being fired and the aspect ration being clamped down. It was actually a demo for some guncam footage for the game... I know YOU'VE seen it but I thought it was worth putting up for a laugh... Anyway, I must get back to work and edit some of the thousands of soundfiles that I have waiting on my desk!!

It didn't win though! :sorry:

We could use a night fighter skin for the Bf110G2. Would it be possible for you to upgrade the 110E2 Handel skin (with death hand) to G2?

Thanks in advance.

Rap, what alpha channel do you use for your 110 G-2 skins? I've been trying to make the default alpha less shiny but I keep ending up with disappearing exhaust pipes.

I use the Photoshop multi layer Alpha that comes with the Template. Hang on...

Here y'go... 

You gotta be REAL careful that NO part of the Alpha is proper black (rgb 0,0,0) otherwise it'll end up transparent, which it sounds like what you're doing... A bit of a bind but worth it in the end!

I saw your new video with the death hand on a 110G2 yesterday. I like it better than a night fighter version I had asked for earlier. Beautiful job.

Please share the link for the skin.
