"...I was leading a formation of P-47's against targets of opportunity on Thiene Airdrome, on 22 Jan '45. I ordered my flight to maintain to cover as I dived down to recce the area. When closer to the ground, I sighted a number of ground targets and completed 2 strafing passes against these objectives. While thus engaged, the enemy opened up with 40 or 50 mm incendiary shells. The tail of my plane caught fire, the elevator controls burned in two and smoke and flames filled the cockpit. I bailed out at 2.000 ft, landing amidst a light explosion of flak and spraining my knee slipping on the powdery snow." More of which is included in the read me file. The above text is from a recollection by Colonel Hugh Dow Rtd recounted to my Fellow Co Author of this skin researcher/author Mr D'Amico without whom this series of skins would not be Possible. . This skin, a follow on to "ChickenBones" and the second in a plannned Series and has been painted on the excellent template provided by Snorri with a skin template layer added by Bo Nidle, Over this I have done some reworking to correct errors in the original voids and then added considerably many new layers to get the metal to a standard close to the photographic evidence I have. From this Photographic evidence, I have then been able to repaint the skin to accurately portray the real "Screaming Red A$$ Commander, Major Hugh Dows personal Mount as Co of the 347th Fighter Squadron 350th Fighter Group" None of which could have been done without the support and not inconsiderable help I have received from my Co Author Ferdinando D'Amico.. Thank you.. Included in the folder is also a Pilot Skin of Major Hugh Dow painted on one of the Excellent Pilot Skins From Tony......

For all those interested in such things, this is an actual in game screenshot, all i have done is reduced the brightness by -16 and increased the contrast by +42 for the background in Photoshop to get this effect, now if the game could be tweaked like that I would be esctatic http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you Sir TT!! Another great contribution to the barn. Your spit template is still going strong in my PS6 and is THE template for any spit jobs I do.

Good job.
