When you have a spare 5 minutes a P51 in RAF livery wouldn't go amiss Rap

I've looked at a few and the only half decent ones seem to be earlier models. Have you any one in particular you had in mind? If you have then pictures would be gratefully received....

It's a brilliant way of putting down, innit? Saves time and stops any 'untoward attention'!! ;)

@sammydee One British Mustang up and ready to fly in the P-51 section (WITHOUT scratching the paintwork, I hasten to add!!). Took a little longer than 'a spare 5 minutes' but then these things tend to!!

Enjoy.

Raptor, that is a gorgeous skin. I don't know how you guys do it. I have Photoshop and each time I look at the template I am just overwhelmed. 

Would love to recreate this old photos. 

 

Thanks so much for doing it. I would ask for another but i don't want to be a beggar. lol

PM me with your request? It's easier for me to deal with that way. It may not be quite so quick being made but at least I can give it some thought while I get all the others out of the way!

There's nowt wrong with begging, without it a lot would be without!!

Rap,  if you have will and time, do you think this could be done?

I'm a little bit confused here... is this plane aluminium with white sections? It's a bit hard to tell from the picture(s) AND it's late at night after a lonnnnng day skinning!!

Rap,

     Judging from all the comments and requests I know you're busy, but let me add one more P-51 to the list.  Could you do one or several of the Mustangs from the 55th FG, 348th FS? I've always thought their colors were unique to the Mustang.  Love all of your skins … a real testimony to your artistic skills

Falcon, can you PM me an idea of which one you want? It's easier that way as they kind of get lost in here!! A brain as well-used and as worn out as my raisin-like grey matter tends to splutter and go out with too much searching!!

Rap, 

     I've attached a pic of a general skin associated with the 348th FS, 55th FG for your use.  I'm certain there are other planes with personalized names, etc.; however, I've yet to find them.  Looking forward to see what you can do and I'll keep looking.

Where's that one from? 

The other thing is, are you SURE you want 348th and not 343rd?

Rap,

    You're right, it is the 343rd FS.  I spotted the attached and forwarded it to you in hopes you could see your way to skin this one.

Good job ONE of us is on it eh? :rolleyes:

I can try to find some more on this one but I've also got some real good reference for 'Miss Velma' as well, failing all else. It'll end up one or the other, don't worry!

Thanks Rap, your skins are great by the way.  With the presence of P-51's in the sim I'm afraid all you skinners are going to be overloaded with requests.

We are, we ARE!!

I think 'Miss Velma' is the one. I've got more on her than any other. I can't say when though, I've SOOOO many to do at the moment. Within the week, how's that sound?

Sounds great ... looking forward to your art.  Would it be possible to create a flight from this squadron as it provides a more immersive game when the other planes supporting you are from the same squadron.

I don't know what you mean exactly? If you mean will I make enough skins for a flight then that's a wee bit of a tall order as they each take around a day and a bit to do so... I've an AWFUL lot of requests to do as well. I'll do what I can when I have time and can get around to it but I can't promise it my undivided attention, if you see what I mean?

Anyway, that said 'Miss Velma' is up for downloading in the Mustang section on pg.7 so enjoy!!
