I agree with Macca - I favor the 1st color scheme, but I think they both look great.

On the pimp job, 2 other ideas I thought of before reading Macca's are:
- tri-color flash somewhere on the vertical tail (either just the very top portion, or just the rudder), or some other sort of Irish symbol on the vertical stab & rudder perhaps.
- Irish-green stripe around leading edge of the engine nacelles, maybe

Would probably have to see what any of the above look like to see if they're any good or too much. I'll leave that to your artistic eye though. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be super as usual - and I definitely want one of the finished products!

All are excellent Gen!
Maciej and Larry's suggestions are good ones and I agree, except for tri-color prop blades (a bit ostentatious IMHO).
I lean toward the top of the Vertical Stabilizer and the Prop Spinners only (less is best, y'know :) )

And, of course, we'll need Winter skins, too. :D

Also, and, of course, our #s and nose art included.

And, also, and, of course, ...

Better stop while I'm ahead. :lol:
Maybe you missed it, but there's a whole new "Now", now. :?

Nice, Frank!

This may seem to be "nit picking", but the vertical warning stripes under each side of the cockpit should be red or yellow since they are after all warning stripes intended for ground crew to avoid the prop arc while an engine is running.
As a compromise, our beloved orange from the colors would work nicely. :)

A lovely set, Frank.i wish I had the skills you have:)

I think that it would really be lovely if it could have additionally some tricolor on vertical steering surface.

Hi Frank, do you still have all the skins you made, I had to re-install after tinkering (a vice of mine :)), if so you you possibly send them my way again, please, plus the A-20 if it's finished.

Thanks


Vin

P.S so far I've had to work the last four Sundays, so haven't been around, hopefully the give me a break soon.

Hello Vin,

an e-mail with download details has been sent out to you. Unfortunately I lost sight on the A-20 skins and I haven't worked on it so far. Maybe it's time to pick it up again ...

Hope to see you tonight, Vin!

Frank ^:)
