Hu Julian,

 

Constructive critique - the wing stripes on the 36th FS P-38s were angled in towards the nose not parallel to the longitudinal axis:

If you look closely at the profile you used as reference, you'll see the stripe starts close to engine nacelle, but finishes well outboard of the aileron tab.

Well seen, I'll change it :salute:

Do you tinker with alpha channel or normal map in your skins to adjust reflectivity of their parts? Looking at the screenshots (can't play the game at the moment) it seems at least national insignia and anti-glare parts are polished, while from accuracy point of view they should be flat. 

 

Also, 100 number on the Putt Putt Maru is too low (compared to photos of the real thing), which makes part of it being cut out by oil cooler doors.

 

I am still understanding the Alpha channel.  Its a bit tricky.  Just when I think Ive got it I lose it. LOL.  Try redownloading the plane now.  Thanks for the ideas.  All the best.

Julian,

 

May I ask how you are rendering the excellent wheel wells on the P38?  Awesome.  I am learning.

Photoshop, reference photos, pen tool, marquee tool and time 😁

HI,

 

on PUT PUT MARU on the right spinner stripes are missing.

 

Later i will upload a screenshoot.

 

 

May I ask which download you got and where you got it from?  Both downloads are up to date as far as I can see.  I did  an early version which I took down when this was pointed out to me.  Let me know if you took it from Lock on Files or my link. Thanks for the quality control.

Hi Patrick,

 

first of all this is no criticism from my side. Thats not how it works for me!, So, sorry if you have taken this as criticism.

 

Thanks for the download path but the stripe is missing on the right spinner on the bottom

 

Here two screenshots.

 

Thanks again for your skins:salute:

I resent the file for your review.  Thanks for the help.  

 

PS The "Quality Control" comment was not meant to be sarcastic.

Omg imagine if someone made a Pulp Fiction Honey Bunny version with Yolanda brandishing a revolver, that would be so troll  

Krisu,

 

Send me some pix and I'll happily do it.

I think it's gonna take a lot of work to take a picture from the movie and make it suitable for the plane. Thanks for the offer though, really kind of you : D
