W.I.P. 45th IAP P-39

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've been working with ICDP's outstanding template on this 45th IAP skin- originally a P-39D-2 from the spring of '43.  Slowly dialing it in- this is my first skinning effort and there has been a HUGE learning curve (using GIMP).  Really struggled getting the skin to save in dds format with ICDP's Alpha channel engaged.  Finally got it to work this morning after a lot of reading through various threads and experimenting.  Still a bit too much shine for my taste, I think the VVS overpaint of the USAAF discs should be blue instead of the green, maybe the tail stencil should be enlarged a bit- and I've gone too green on the OD- but will keep working at it...

Hmmm... maybe, yes, yes and here, try these colourcharts...
