Does anyone have any fonts for it? Or an edited template with different nose-designs colours etc they can share?

Hi Pict, thanks for these fonts, they'll work with the USAAF aircraft as well, only trouble is that although Windows has them installed and I can use the fonts in Paint,  Gimp doesn't "find them"?!

 

Not sure about Gimp, but if they are recognized by Windows you should be able to copy them from the "Character map"  found under Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools at least on Window 7...then you should be able to paste them wherever you need them.

 

I have some templates with decent numbers and letters that will work for RAF, USAAF & Luftwaffe, done a long time ago by an Italian guy called Alex for CFS2 or 3...his website "Wings an Coffee" is dormant and I can't see anywhere else they are still available, so I'll upload them to a file share thing and post them in the Skinning Resources thread here later. He did some roundels too, so I'll put them all up.

Hi Pict,

 

Got the fonts into Gimp in the end, after downloading  version 2.10.12 I went into the preferences and found the fonts folder Gimp uses and put them in there, all working, thanks again :)

You do not like? I could do it, but I can't see good anymore,
it would take me too long!😔

I might also add that "Upupa Epops" would be a brilliant skin to have, flown by Bud Tordoff. This p51 is also a jet killer, with one me262 long range kill.

Well I did quite a lot of refining of my own personal 3 Sq RAAF skin CV-?, mucking around with the apha and such, so I've used those elements to create my take on the quite well known CV-P,  KH716 (originally suggestion to me by Pict), deciding to also release her here for general download. Although she's not as tarted up as her USAAF sisters, this Raaftang has the squadrons signature Southern Cross rudder, while at the same this minimalistic skin showcases ICDP's wonderful work. And should it ever come to pass she's ready to go fight further east.

 

After looking through my references, I've decided some work was still required to try and make this skin at least a tad more historically correct. To do this I shifted the serials back to the same left justified position of my CV-? skin , I've also lightened the rudder colour to be the same as that which I've used for the the codes, here I decided to not go as bright as some references would suggest, staying with the rudder the blue paint now extends onto the rudder balance as would appear to have been the units practice.

The above link is now redundant please follow this link to go to page 4 of this post for a new link to a revised KH716 and also a new link for KH677.

Of course the lion share of credit and many thanks goes to ICDP for this excellent template.

 

Enjoy and ciao.

Some skinning folks might find this useful for making unit markings:

Guys here are some invasions stripe layers for the P-51D.  I have created 2 versions, modern warbird with sharp masked perfect lines and another with WWII done in a hurry by brush.

 

Full and underside only versions included

Sweet, as the stripes were supposed to be the same size on all fighters I should be able to get them onto a Tempest fairly easily, :) he says before he starts!

Thanks, this will help. Took me forever to line them up myself and they still aren't perfect. Might use yours instead.

G'day

 

Was wondering if there was a remote possibility that you could release an RAF cam version template or at least make the three cam colour layers available, I'm admittedly being a tad lazy and trying to avoid starting doing the whole thing over from scratch, if you are unable to do so then that's totally understandable too.

 

Cheers

Yes, even better thanks

 

Been working on my pony, the layers take some getting used to, I'm learning some are "blocking" other layers so become either/or options.

Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not up to speed on Gimp so can't be of any help with that.

 

However I noticed that you added your avatar and would suggest that pure black is often too black on a skin as it has a tendency to make the object jump out like it's not part of things or shouldn't be there. Could be worth toning down a little...just a suggestion

Well it would seem that I succeeded in getting over my bout of laziness, as I have started to work on my own RAF cam. Early days but I just finished applying the Dark Green and the Medium Sea Grey and after a quite a bit of trial an error managed to get the soft demarcation between the two sorted, now just got to set to work on adding the Ocean Grey.

Sadly away from home again so cant test fly it outside of the viewer, more to come....

Well the things you discover when you start to doing some research, I'd always assumed that the 3 Sq RAAF Tangs would have just used a standard RAF camouflage pattern, however it turns out this is not the case, a fact that initially confused me when I was looking at various images of the units Tangs and the lines of the cam where not going where I expected them to go. This site details this anomaly, which by the way is also where the images below come from. Apparently this pattern was consistent across many of the camouflaged MkIV / P51K that the unit used. This scheme should also be a far simpler to apply to the skin 😄.

Any chance of some 4th Fighter Group or 355th Fighter Group skins? I can find some profiles or dig through my books for pictures!

Were they "Grey", I assumed they were just delivered in natural metal finish?

 

Not meant to be historical, Ive just skinned quite a few aircraft in this theme now with a matte grey body with black nose! :salute:

I know Kidd Hofer didn’t have a D model, but would it be possible to skin his B as a D model?

The joy of lining up camo...

 

 

I so know very much your pain, I was up well past midnight tweaking the alignment of the skin below..

 

655847245_rafpatternfromdefault.thumb.jpg.a76614c5a622f277a860b7f9249b5751.jpg

 

Seeing that I'd already started working on a standard (if there is any such thing) RAF camo, which have I based on that used in the game default RAF, I decided to finish it off before starting the so called firewall scheme which is what CV-W is is supposed to be actually wareing. I chose to keep going as I plan to do the KH677 version of CV-P as well. Which by the way I'll be uploading an updated version KH716 with some more historical corrections soon
