All cleaned up and ready to go ...

but I'll dirty it up a wee bit, number it up and upload it by the end of next week.


Opinions?

Changes?

Errors before I start with the numbers and pilot names?

Darn nice Falcon, really like the way you did the camo contra metal-finish blending.

Once again a good job! :)

Fug a dug... handsome is as handsome does... or so they say in some quarters.

Only thing I don't really like is the very styalised "brush stroke" type font used for the numbering... just a bit OTT for my tastes.

And the red propeller blades don't go very well with the irish tricolours. Just aesthetic stuff really. Did you run this one past da missus before publishing?

OK OK I like it :)

Thanks for the input Gurb and Thomas.

The Ki-61 is finished, numbered and uploaded to the files site.

Enjoy,


Falcon


PS: I was looking for the Do-335, He-111 and the 190 Dora. Are they finished?

335 skin is done, but I need to add the member names and numbers, but honestly don't know when I'll be able to get that done :? :x

Anyone need a Dora?

Just another repaint. Jester's-INK template, redone from Galland's Circus Template.

Just something fun to do as a possible addition to any updates we might do for the skinning project.
You've got red on you.

Very nice Snaphoo!

Can I see a wee bit of camo paint behind the fuselage roundel?

If there is ... you can get rid of that ghost by putting an almost opaque light gray disk behind the roundel and re-adjusting the original FI round opacity.

Good to see the FI skinners aren't totally demoralized.

thanks Jake,

'Smatter o' fact, you do... I had no idea how to fix that until just now... many thanks!

And I'm far to dense to be demoralized... ;)

Snaph.

How'd the rivets work out on Jesters template?

Post by :FI:Sneaky_Russian » Sat Apr 14, 2007 12:32 am

I'd done some straightening on this template (theyre warped on the void too)
