View Full Version : P-51Bs, a new lot on the way! Plus template news inside ;)

S! Everyone, WIPs/Almost-done pics of my newest Mustangs. As for the template, she's being worked on. I've got it down to just over 21 megs, and trying to figure out what to merge down more. It's going to have aluminum(like the one here), OD camo, and US markings, but nothing more in the way of markings, gonna have to add them yourself. I'll let you know when it's ready http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Now, the newest -51s are:
P-51B-1 43-12173 GQ-A, "Peg O' My Heart" George Bickwell, CO 355th FS
P-51B-? 43-12484 GQ-V, "Sky Clipper" pilot unknown at this time 355th FS
P-51B-1 43-12375 FT-E, "Bonnie B II" Donald Beerbower 15.5 victories, 353rd FS

Bonnie B has 2 versions, because I've seen pics without the yellow nose stripe, and profiles with it. When I get the horsy straightened out in back I'll post Bonnie and Sky clipper. Peg will be posted in a later pack(I have my reasons http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif). Also included is a WIP of my aluminum. Weathering has been increased a bit, and I feel the general look of the skins is better.






As always, feedback is appreciated! Let me know what ya think! Thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

All are nice. I'm especially fond of "Peg 'O My Heart" and "Sky Clipper".

I'm very interested in the template. I'll keep watching for info.

Good work!

Hello Slater,

Excellent WIP skins! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif I really like those late 1943 insignia's on "Sky Clipper" & "Peg O' My Heart". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Don't see to many skins with those markings. I am also looking forward to the template. The aluminum looks great aswell as the olive drab. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I do have one suggestion for the aluminum though. You should rework the exhaust sheild around the exhaust ports to match the aluminum fuselage. Not to many skinners here pay attention to them. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Keep up the excellent work! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif =S=

Squirrel, I have the exhast ports the right color, but I just added some OD to them for the OD skins as they stuck out too much. I simply forgot to take the OD off for the shot, DOH!

Peg and SkyClipper have the late Stars&Bars because the pics I have of them show the outlines, and because they loook sooo SWEEEET! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hello Slater,

Yeah I know you didn't hide the OD for the aluminum screenshot. I was just pointing out the exhaust shield should also been done to match the fuselage aluminum. I wasn't aware you had already done that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah the red outlined insignia's are from late 1943. They didn't last long & where changed. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Keep up the excellent work! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif =S=
