great work, one thing i noticed is is tough to look for the pilot skin you want i renamed all min to German_pilotname VVS_pilotnames USAAF_pilotnames TUSKEGEE_pilotnames this way its easier to keep in catorgories, just a thought, great pilot skins once again thank you

Hi guys, thanks,

Leadspitter m8,

Yes, I agree that this would be easier. When I started my first pack I didn't realise how many I would eventually make /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif , I'm working on a new pack which will bring the total upto 200 !!.

Cheers

Hi m8,

It depends on the angle of the photo. Sometimes the only way to get it so that you don't get cutoff is to make them slightly oversized, it's hard to explain.

If there are specific example please let me know and I'll try but the pictures that I have to work with (took 6 hours of searching + four hours of artwork) are often far from perfect, for example I only found 1 picture of Robert S Johnson (the same one many times) and even then I had to split it and recombine it was taken at a fairly awefull angle,

I have asked several times if people have good pilot pictures but yet to receive any !? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks guys,

Yup, I'm pleased with "Gabby", wish I could find more pics of that quality and colour is always a bonus.

I've nearly finished a new pack for a new country. I'll put the finishing touches tomorrow and upload it to the server.

Cheers all
