SF1 F9F-5 & F9F-5P Panther Skins.
For those of us that still fly SF1, who still enjoy the old Korean War mod and who would like some updated F9F-5/5P Panther skins for the Korean theatre.
This download contains the Fighter/Bomber and Photo Reconnaissance aircraft as well as skins.
Because I used Wrench's SF2 F9F-2 decals, you may notice the BuNums referencing the aircraft as F9F-2 models instead of F9F-5 models. Change them if you wish/can.
Most of these old SF1 skins didn't use the decal system. They do now.
I only created a template and repainted over the old skins. The model is a bit old and has some quirks with the paint and decals. You will notice some paint streaks and line deformation caused by these quirks.
Thanks and credit go to:

If you wish to paint your own skins, the template is available for the asking. Just PM me. It is in .psd format.
These skins are in .bmp format and were created at 1024 pixels. They are 3MB each but can be downsized for those of you who can't use them this large.
