I know we all have our favourite aircrafts, so certainly there must be a favourite skin out there aswell! We have so many talanted skinners on this forum, I thought perhaps this could be a small tribute thread to these artists?

Me, I flip back and forth actually, but there's a skin that stands out amongst all the others! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Cptfarrels "Blue 12". Excellent in its mix of sinister colours.

(Sooty's Yak-9U skin is also a true work of art!)

Oberleutnant Oskar-Walter Romm thoughts on his aircraft.

"I found the Fw 190D-9 to be greatly superior to those of my opponents. During dogfights at altitudes of between about 10,000 and 24,000ft, usual when meeting the Russians, I found that I could pull the D-9 into a tight turn and still retain my speed advantage. In the descent the Dora-9 picked up speed much more rapidly than the A type; in the dive it could leave the Russian Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighters standing."

hammerd's black 12 for the Dora is a favourite but so many good ones it's difficult to make a choice.

If this is a tribute then here's to all you skinners out there!

That is one very difficult question to answer. I could say Hammerds black 12, but immediately after I get a feeling of guilt http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif because there are so many skins which deserve tha same status. New yak skins from NNAvirex are awsome, there are great MiG-3 skins, etc.

Hey Copperhead! F-Off dude. I did the Ki-46 skin and it is perfectly fine and matches up just great with all of the other default skins in the game. It's a simple green paintjob. There are very few pics or color profiles of the Dinah, so some guess work had to be used. And maybe cause it wasn't by Hammerd you aren't kissing my ***, but trust me the skin is fine. I personally would have used different angles, but it's out of my hands. I will even send you other shots of it if you want before you bash my work further. I don't understand all the angst about the Ki-46. It's obviously good enough for Oleg and crew. Why not you guys? I'm constantly defending this beautiful bird. You also have no idea how detailed that cockpit is and what other color schemes I did for the fighter versions. Gimme a break!

I tend to agree, as a complete sucker for the P-38 , I am. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I only recently heard of him, and am
darned glad I did!

And anything that BlitzPig_Hammerd does is a work of art. He goes through painstaking
efforts, and it shows.

Oh, and that last little bit, he became an official BlitzPig today, after the usual 30

Hey Burnin,

Settle down mate. I for one appreciate anything you blokes do, as I have experimented with skins in the early days of CFS2 and am convinced that it is no easy task. As good as I think your skin is, I for one am not impressed with a reply of that kind. It tends to take the shine off what is otherwise a great effort Thanks for a great bird to get the PF rolling

As for Copperhead, if you can do better, then by all means impress me. But please don't bring the forum down with such a blunt and derogatory remark. If you want to see bad skins, then I shall try to find my old copy of "Their Finest Hour" if anybody has a CPU slow enough to run it. Actually I remember way back in 1995 being really impressed with this game on an old puter running W3.1. Hell I had no idea just how far we would come and I for one stand amazed and impressed.

My loving wife on the other hand is also amazed and I can tell, because she just shakes her head and hands me another drink. Ahhh, there's nothing quite like being slightly intoxicated and spiralling into the ground as a ball of flame! Just another sip and start the scenario all over again.

This site is usually friendly and informative and I enjoy reading alot of it. So please can we all be a little more accepting and social.

Cheers to all, Especially Oleg.

I have 4-views of the Demon's Dutch East Indies Camo on a Scale Aircraft Modelling special (Combat Colours number four - I think) but haven't got a scanner to pass them on to you.

If it can help you can find colour samples on the 1JAVa website: http://www.1java.org/sh/Holland.html

The colours you need ar QM42 and QM31 and the undersurface were almost surely aluminium.

I'm sure that if you contact any of the Dutch guys they will be more than happy to help you with references and schemes...

Hope it helps, keep up the good work Leadspitter!!!

Looking good.

Very little is known about the colors. Except that the Dutch in the NEI used standard factory colors a lot and did repairs with paint made in the NEI. Due to this there could be color differences.

Also the paint used is known to change color over time. Probably this is the cause for a lot of discussion about the colors.
Fresh they looked more greenish but over time they tended to go toward brown.
I think the colors used are a good match for a not so factory fresh CW-21 (judging from pictues of aircraft in the same colors)

Leadspitter, I assume to also got the simple scheme that makes clear the top side pattern?
If not, PM me and I'll send it to you.

Oberleutnant Oskar-Walter Romm thoughts on his aircraft.

"I found the Fw 190D-9 to be greatly superior to those of my opponents. During dogfights at altitudes of between about 10,000 and 24,000ft, usual when meeting the Russians, I found that I could pull the D-9 into a tight turn and still retain my speed advantage. In the descent the Dora-9 picked up speed much more rapidly than the A type; in the dive it could leave the Russian Yak-3 and Yak-9 fighters standing."

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

I do feel you are being a tad unfair with that and i must come to their defence, Skinning is not easy for one, a lot of people may make it look like it is, but trying to get lines and colour to align is a pain adding to that there is not simple software to check the skin as it progresses, you need to do it in game every little tweek you do to see if it has worked.

On top of that you do not know what the brief was, as to what was required... I can produce skins to what i believe is a high quality, but if by producing a default skin then the artist has to walk a fine line as to what will work on a top end machine whilst not looking absolutly dire on a low spec machine, a compromise has to be made so a skin works across the spectrum whilst not slowing down the frame rate to much on slower machines. remember as a base scheme, it has to be able to work with all the in game markings and because it is not marked up it may appear a bit bland, but then the majority of the schemes the japanese used are bland, plain and simple, wait till the game is out and some of the skinners will no doubt satisfy your every whim with new skins to adorn the planes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well...I feel any statements made in this thread regarding best are DEFINATELY opinions and opinions only..as there are so many artists who spend a lot of their time creating these to enrich this sim. And as i have just started to delve in photoshop just to modify skins..I can definately appreciate all the work it takes.

That said..with big props to Tchaika, Jutocsa, Canonuk, Leadspitter,Java Serval, Hammerd, ats42, and anybody else who takes the time lay out these great skins and templates.(Huckebein I have a couple of your skins too..really nice.........for a luftwhiner http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

But i have to say...that Compans dude...his skins have such a photographic quality that IMO they take the GAME to another step towards realism. And the amazing thing, at least to me, is that after requesting a PSD template from him to learn some technique..he informed me that he used PAINTSHOP for his skins. That maybe why he only has about 8 or 9 posted, but I got to give this guys big ups.......

Favorite skin? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Impossible to say. I't's like asking about your favorite woman; too many to choose from and variety is the spice of life. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Shhhh, my wife is in the next room. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

There's obviously some great talent out there, some of the artwork is amazing. I look for authenticity but also a little factual story to go along with the skin kinda brings out the beauty of the skin.

Making a skin is no easy task. First deciding which skin to make is tough enough. Then there's the research; some details seem almost impossible to find. After the research to have to constantly dress the a/c in the game to check progress and detail; this is time consuming. I've only ever made one skin and before starting I had to learn to use the software.

I do appreciate all the skins since they represent time and effort, besides talent. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif They are also shared; no cost!

Copperhead, you should think about these things before kicking people in the ballz.

My favorite skins are those of captured a/c.

There are so many great skins out there I think it's impossible to pick "the best skin". As a beginning skinner I am totaly in awe at the 'Masters', as this is not at all easy to learn or do. Personaly I would like to thank Jutosca and DarkHunter for their marvelous templates from which I've learned much and gained a greater appreciation for the art, and to adlabs and Snake for their great tutorials.
