I have pushed the boat out on doing this screenshot a bit...what you think?

Normally I like to include a read me about the Aircraft involved in my Screenshots and skins, but in this case i have been unable to track the Aircraft to a fixed carrier although the pictures I have used to recreate the scheme show this to be a accurate Aircraft scheme, right down to the markings...

I hope you enjoy the skin and finally I thought I would add a little information about the screenshot, this has been done in photoshop. After taking a picture of the aircraft flying over the reef I have added a screenshot of one of the destroyers in the game see object window, this was then altered to represent an old beached Japanese Destroyer wreck lying upright on one of the many reefs that surround the Islands of the Pacific. I do hope you all Enjoy the skin.

Badsight, that is probably the best comment I have had on all my skin screenshots, because you think it looks real, I used one of the destroyers in the window that allows you to view all the models in the game, I then added it to a screenshot I set up (ie flying over the reef etc) added the ship and then scaled it up and destroyed it, then rusted it down to get the effect after that i tweaked a few things and added some waves etc to complete the effect, unfortunately its not in game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif would be nice to see the odd wreck etc as all we see is stuff that is still operational, but i can understand why we dont http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Looks neat, I guess the ship has been there some time, a practice flight in the late 50s trainer?

Here's a real Target Ship that is just off from a beach on Cape Cod.
I use to watch with my father... you could go to the Beach and at the same time watch the Navy and Air Force bomb and strafe it.

You're lying. That's not done in photoshop. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Amazing work on both the skin and the screen, I think that's the most convincing photoshop mock-up I've ever seen!
