I have been working on some updates of skins I've made. When I made my earlier skins, I was just learning to skin and although they are alright, they are not as accurate as I'd like, or nearly as good as I'd like

I am working to replace all my AVG H81A-2 skins, here are some samples:

1st Squadron, Adam and Eves, White 1:

This skin shows among many things, the work I'm doing on updated, more historically correct sharkmouths, based on squadron style

2nd Squadron, Panda Bears, White 47 flown by John Petach, featuring the 2nd Squadron style sharkmouth:

3rd Squadron, fictious plane, flown by Player (the real White 67 was probably wrecked before the beginning of hostilities)

With decal:

Same plane, showing an odd historical fact- AVG ground crew fitted small vanes onto some wheel covers, and painted the covers half blue and half orange, to see if this trick made the wheels rotate before touch-down, and therefore saving tire wear:

At least three or four different wheel styles will be on the planes- the pinwheel type, the 'standard' green or gray cover, the blue/orange cover, and no cover

Fairly close-up shot of 3rd Squadron, Hell's Angels White 68, flown by Chuck Older, showing correct location of several labels and stencils, and featuring a photo-reproduced sharkmouth:

I am starting with replacing my 3rd Squadron skinpack, so the player's squadron will be done first

What would us AVG-freaks do without you, Bibbo?
