Danziger's Airplane Skins/Mods/Porn

Recommended Posts

I figured I would start my own thread to dump all my pictures in. I am still working on a set of personal skins. I have never done any real skinning of the US planes so I am using these personal skins to learn me ropes and ins and outs of colors and markings and such. I am also taking on a project to make the two extra parts textures HD. I have resized them to 4096 without any performance hit. The main things I wanted to do were making the prop more black, weathered and legible, making the tires more weathered and less shiny. I think there is a lot of potential for other things as well. Using the alpha, I made the cockpit dials look like they have glass over the faces. It is going to take a lot of time to get all the details done but the preliminary results are pretty good I think. I still want to work more on the tyres dirt. I am going for the look of the A20 tyres. Whoever did those was a genius.

 

What I have done so far:

Readable stencils and decals on the prop

Darker color and weathering of prop

Tyre dirt

Cockpit dials

The rails that the canopy slides on are higher resolution

Everything is made with art and template by 777 and ICDP. I've only tweaked and modified a few things.

Does anyone know if the landing gear struts are supposed to be bare metal or painted white or what?

Bare metal here :

They were not painted white. Either left to natural metal or some have suggested painted in the same lacquer silver paint that the wings got.

Is that a wartime photo though?

 

No it isn't. The biggest flaw is that it shows too many victory marks for its early variant of the paint job. (and a few other elements that are incorrect.)

So far I have only seen what looks like post war pictures of restored aircraft. The struts look like they are not bare metal but painted silver.

Mine are close enough to war time that should give you what you want. 

The pics of Caroline, 2nd from top is actual war time photo before she got her buzz codes put on.

I think the P-47 template and the Mustang more or less use the same tires. there's a dirt texture in the P-47 template that you can use for reference or use it as a layer for the tire dirt...Just a hint

Just some tyre progress. I want to edit the normal map to put some deeper tread grooves as well.

I do it with the alpha of the file for the extra textures. I just place a higher value plain grey circle over where the glass should be. I use a value of 34 I think for the P51. It is the same principle behind making a skin more glossy or matte. I just made the gauges more glossy so they reflect like glass from certain angles.

I've been distracted lately making some personal skins for this one.

Yes I will be putting all that stuff in here once I get them ready to go. I've just been having a really busy couple of weeks in real life and haven't had time to work on these for a few days.

OP updated with link to stang skins and parts textures. I only did upgrades to what was mentioned so far but I didn't want to keep you guys waiting forever when the stuff that is the most visible is done already.

 

Also, here are my personal skins for A8 and D9. D9 has a lot of different versions depending on what color spinner you like best.

Thanks!!

Looks great here. Wonderful job!!

 

I placed both texture files in the textures folder which seems to be working great. Is this the correct way to install? 

 

Thanks again for your fantastic work, attention to detail.

Correct. I have it structured so that you should be able to use JSGME to install or uninstall.

I've been sinking my teeth into the A5 since ICDP remastered it in 4k. I really like the way he's done justice to the 190s.
