I'm not sure what others think, but that could be the very thing for the FI as the main aircraft skin, the colours on the spinner and the tail stripes. Very nice again Frank.

Thank you very much, Vin! :D

Although it sounds like I have to rework on all the other skins ... again. But why not?! It keeps me busy and away from gaming ... and my better half already loves the green stripes. She can't see enough of them ... ("Green stripes again, uh?"). :lol: ;)

So, what do the others think about Vin's idea using the colours on the spinner and the tail stripes as characteristics of FI aircraft paintings? :?:

Hmmm, ... you seem to be the only one who's interested into this topic, Vin! :roll:

So it shall be. I've started to modify the P-38 and P-47 skins and uploaded them to the download site. So get the latest version if the FI paintjobs, folks!

I like the last version of the P-38 most, though the earlier versions were cool, too!

As for the Pony and the Jug - they are awesome, couldn't even imagine them being any better!

Folks,

here are some pictures of both versions of the A-20 with the green tail stripes. Do you like them? :roll:

They are sweet. I especially like the orange stripe leading to the cockpit. Thee should be a signage added there - serve beer this way. :)

As for the first skin - would it be possible to make the number on the tail a bit more visible? The stripes make it less visible on the surface compared to eg the number on the wing.

As always - amazing stuff, Gen!

I changed that by putting the squad number on the fuselage of the aircraft. ;)

So, folks!

Get the latest update of the A-20B and P-47D28 skins all outfitted with green tail stripes (even the Soviet ones) ... you know where you find them, don't you?

Folks,

Just started to modify the FIS version of the I-16 skin. What do you think about the result so far?

Very nice Frank.
I noticed on the A-20 that the stripes go around the fuselage as well, is it possible to have just the tail with stripes and the fuselage its normal colour?
