William Barkers Camel B6313 (4 Personal Skins)
By rjwHistorical skins for William Barkers Camel B6313 for use in OFF P3
OFFice: Skin in the Game‘Skin in the Game’ is a custom skin pack for the OFFice incomparable campaign engine for Over Flanders Fields. It includes historically appropriate custom paint jobs for player aircraft in the OFFice campaign from the OFF community’s best skinners. Most of these are already available for download at Combat Ace, but this provides a single, easy-to-install package.
The installer will automatically extract the mod into your OFF JSGME mods folder if OFF and JSGME are installed correctly. The ‘OFFice - Skin in the Game’ folder can be manually activated with JSGME if this pack is used without the rest of the OFFice suite.
OFFramp will activate the mod automatically for your OFFice campaigns, so when you next launch OFF from OFFbase any additional skins will selectable in-game for your aircraft type. If the Bletchley’s RSS Ammo mod is enabled in OFFramp, your Munitions Officer will let you know in the hangar if custom skins are acceptable.
DFW C.V Realistic(?) Naval Hex
After a lot more research, I totally re-did the paintjob of my naval DFW skin. Now it looks (I THINK) about as realistic as possible, per Dan-San Abbott's information. Hand-painted, symmetrical hexes in hopefully the right colors, and the correct colors on the fuselage and rudder.
SPAD VII – Spa.26 1917
No. S 1042 (14) of Spa.26 crashed on nose at St. Pol. This plane was wrecked on 14 September 1917 by M.d.L. Quellec. The serial number indicates that the plane was constructed by Blériot but it appears that the upper wing had been previously replaced with one constructed by S.P.A.D. or Kellner as the cocardes are of a larger diameter than found on Blériot-built planes. Also note that the nose appears to be painted in a dark color. A darkish color extends over the fabric surfaces back to the fuselage band.
Albatros DIII early Burgundy - Jasta 24 1917
Albatros DIII Red Yellow - Jasta 28w 1917
Albatros D.V "Windrose" - Jasta 17 1917
Inspired by the 3. Albatros D.Va built by THE VINTAGE AVIATOR, I made this skin. The plywood of the TVA craft was varnished with a clear laquer with a warm redbrownish tone added. It looks like a darker honey, or amber. Together with the mauve and green upper wing camo, it goes very nicely.

Both .dds and jpeg files included in 7zip format.
2012-10-29 - improved skin for Barker's Black nosed camel and added the extra cooling cutouts for his Italian Camels.
Olham's Belgian Skin Pack 1
By OlhamMy first skins for the "DiD Campaign" Belgian aircraft contain the Nieuport 16, the Nieuport 23, and two Sopwith Strutter skins.
The original skins were all made by the OBD skinners (OvS, Sandbagger, Paarma, Makai and Rabu);
I have only changed the upper surface greens, and the Belgian roundels. Thank you guys for your great works!
By BulletheadA DFW skin with no paint other than the insignia and serial number. This, with its darkly varnished fuselage, is intended to stand in for the Brandenburg C.I in its most common appearance. Seems like most KuK planes weren't painted.
RAF BE.2c 1916 Belgian Skin
By OlhamOn request by Bucksnort, I have added a BE.2c for the Belgian air service, for the use in the "New DiD Campaign".
I have only painted the upper surfaces green, and added Belgian roundels.
The original skin is from the huge skins department in WOFF and was created by the OBD Skinners (OvS, Paarma, Sandbagger, RABU and Makai).
I would like to thank them all for their wonderful, rich works.
Bristol F2b C4879 "The Crocodile"
By chrispdm1Skin for the bristol F2.b Fighter. This is a historically accurate skin of Serial number C4879 which was photographed at No.33 TDS Witney apparently after the armistice.
Se5a and Camel moded skins with Canadian Maple Leaf
By rjwThis update corrects a flaw in one of the skins. Thanks to Olham for pointing me in this direction.
These skins have been zipped with "7Zip". I have added a Red Canadian Maple Leaf to the original OFF skins for those interested.
and the zip also includes .bmp screen captures of each image.
Unzip the file and add the ".dds" file to your "skins" directory in OFF.
Fokker DVII_FThis is a fictional design (though hopefully believable) of a Fokker DVIIF of Jasta 10
Please feel free to have fun with it..use it as you will.
Many thanks as usual to OvS and all at OBD for allowing us to use their original skins
Ernst Kessler Jasta 4 1918
By FRO8769Original OFF skins/templates created by Terry “Makai” Kerby and OBD Software.
Ernst Kessler's Fokker DR I skin from The Great Waldo Pepper. I assigned it to Jasta 4 for campaigns.
Open your Programs folder/Microsoftgames folder/CFSWW1 Over Flanders Fields folder/campaigns folder/CampaignData folder/skins folder and place in there.
By BulletheadA quick and dirty Austro-Hungarian skin for the Hannover. This is a 2-tone, hex-edged scheme based on UFFAG C.Is from mid-1918.
v2: Changed color of upper wing center section, lower side. Also some general minor tweaks.
"Enter the Dragon", A Custom Vintage Camel Skin
By RAF_LouvertHere is a new skin for the Camel that was created using ideas gleaned from many old WWI aircraft photos. Enjoy!
F Dr1 Kempf Jasta Boelcke
By fubar45Fokker Dr1 213/17 of Ltn d R Fritz Kempf
Kempf was a Kette leader, his Dr1 displayed Kempf's name in bold
white letters on the top wing and his KENNSCHT MI NOCH? (Remember me still?)
is in the "alemannisch" dialect of his native Freiburg.
Fokker Dr. 1 from Jasta 18 - the "Raben Staffel"
By OlhamThis is my latest fictional skin for a Fokker Dr. 1 from Jasta 18, also called "Staffel Raben" or "Raben-Staffel".
Their fighters had first been red-nosed, with a blue fuselage.
Under Staffelführer August Raben the colours got changed.
The nose section and the upper wing surfaces were Vermillion red, the rest was white.
All pilots used a Raven symbol, some had additional own emblems.
The Raven symbol was mostly black - but as I said; this is an individual and fictional skin.
This skin could not have been done without the great fund of more than 3.400 skins, OBD's skinners made for us.
A big "THANK YOU" and a deep bow for so much dedication and love put into all that!
By fubar45Aircraft presented to M von Richthofen in August 1917.
Oblt Kurt Wolff was shot down in this aircraft and killed on 15 september.
Albatros D.V (later) Basic Skin for Jasta 2
By OlhamAfter a lot of experimentation with plywood textures, I have come up with this version
of a Jasta 2 skin for an Albatros D.V (uprated).
It is meant to be a factory-new D.V, but with the hood and wheel covers painted in the
Jasta's dark green already. The white tail section was the Jasta's hallmark.
The wings even carry the line "Nicht auftreten!" (No step!)
I wanted to provide a skin with no special, personal markings, so that everyone can
attach their own designs, without building a totally new skin.
The underlying basic design I worked from is the work from our OBD skinners; and
without their great work I would have been lost.
Albatros D.II "Bavaria"
By OlhamThis is my first Albatros D.II skin, I think.
Since Baldric and Hauksbee asked for an older Bavarian design, which I had erased
unfortunately, I quickly built another again.
I made a Bavarian flag pattern for the tail section. I didn't go so far to make the pattern
on sides and top match correctly - that is a nervewrecking try-and-error work I didn't have
the time for. I think it works okay as it is.
The skin is based on much of the original OFF-Skinner's work - thank you, OBD-Skinners!
Albatros D Va "Reichsadler" ("Eagle of the Empire")
By OlhamSkin created from original OFF skins made by OvS/James Romano and Paarma/Arto Karttunen.
This skin's emblem is the Reichsadler, as it was designed at the time
of the Kaiser empire. The heraldic emblem of the eagle seems to go back
to the double-headed eagle, used for the arms of the "Holy Roman Empire
of German Nations" (Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nationen).
And for Widowmaker and OvS, I have added a little oil dripping.
Celia V: N24 of William A. Wellman, Esc 87
By RAF_Louvert1917 Nieuport 24 "Celia V", belonging to Corporal William "Wild Bill" Wellman, American volunteer flying with Escadrille 87.
Wellman went to France and joined the Norton-Harjes Ambulance Corps, later transferring to the French Foreign Legion, and then on to the French Air Service. After training on Bleriots and Nieuports he went into the Lafayette Flying Corps, assigned to Esc 87. Once he was assigned a mission to drop pamphlets on the Germans. While performing aerobatics over German lines his motor quit, but he managed to crash land and flipped upside down. He couldn't get loose and was rescued by French troops. Wellman was nicknamed "Wild Bill" by the French for his one-man dawn patrols over enemy lines where he would bomb and strafe the Germans. He had two confirmed kills and was eventually shot down by AA fire. In the crash he broke his back in two places, his control stick went into the roof of his mouth and he ended up with a permanent limp and a silver plate in his head. When Wellman was discharged as a sergeant from the French forces in March, 1918 he left with the Croix de Guerre with two Palms, the Medaille Militaire and the citations, A L'Ordre de L'Armee and Le Pilote Americain, Marshall de Logis. After the war Wellman went on to become one of Hollywood's leading directors. The initial success of his career was launched with the 1927 WWI aerial saga "Wings", the first film ever to win the Acadamy Award for Best Picture, (information courtesy of www.worldwar1.com).
I wish to thank Polovski, Winder, OvS, and rabu for their outstanding skins and graphics that provide the starting point for these paint schemes.

Albatros D.V Skin for Jastas 12, 16, 17 or 32
By OlhamThisAlbatros D.V would have flown in 1917.
It's black tail marking would fit with the Jastas 12, 16, 17 or 32.
I have left off my personal black and white "M" marking, so that you can add your own
emblem, sign or letter here.
The skin is based on the original Albatros D.V skin file from OBD, and I would like to
thank all OBD skinners for their inspiring great works. Thanks also to elephant, who
helped me with many details and photos.
Extract the file to your desktop. Then change "Jasta X" to the desired Jasta number; like "Jasta 12".
You can also change "MySkin" into your own name.
Then put the file into the skins folder in your sim:
