Thanks!

 

VF-96's tail art was pretty wicked. Showtime 100 was the air group's CAG bird, and I'm still trying to figure out what the bumble bee and stars on the sides are supposed to represent. :D

Nice looking bird. What font you using for the stuff on the side ???

 

Thanks, Rat.

 

Up until this skin I've been using Arial and MS Sans Serif, and drawing my own when necessary. Recently I found a set of fonts at this address: http://www.bobsyouruncle.net/font-types.htm that have been very useful, especially "USAFF CODE". There are no Bold or Italics included, but Photoshop can emulate them with "faux" modes and it works pretty well.

I decided to get rid of the falcon on the tail. I tried figuring out a way to make it look good, but I couldnt...so i designed a new take :roll: o well

 

Cheers S!

Nice! I especially like how you handled the tail on the v4 model, it looks like something you'd see on a CAG-bird today.
