I have this P-38J that was done by ATS42...

With IL2skins gone im not aware of a link to download it, but if you want to pm me with your email I can send it to you.
Note that with all the p-38s the mapping of the codes gets mirrored backwards on the right side. A little stretching on the top of the nose as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I know this is a pretty sweeping statement, but I feel that there is some truth in it.

The P-38, compared to other planes, gets no love when it comes to skins. There seem to be ten skins for every other plane to every one for the '38.

If anyone has a good source for P-38 skins, could you post the link?

Perhaps it has something to do with the stretching and reverse mirroring of the skins when applied over the 3D model.
Cant be much of an incentive to skinners when their work gets warped like that.

However, ATS42 did a ton of both the J & L and had them at IL2skins before it went down.
Of all the P-38 skins I have, his are easily the best around.
