Hi Skinners

 

Is there anyone who has the time to create an EF-111A Raven Skin, based on the F-111A? Can supply pics etc.

 

 

Cheers

Hi FastCargo

 

That looks just stunning if I didn't know better I would have thought that was part of the original model. Tried to paint the Raven myself, but a kid with crayons could do better! :blink:

 

If anyone is interested in skinning the Raven have found out that the top colour is FS 36320 which is RGB= 152 161 169. The underside colour is FS 36495 which is RGB= 207 209 210.

 

Cheers

And I can tell you this, the EF-111A at the AF Museum is not even close to those FS colors. It is "beat to death" grey I think. :biggrin:

Hmmm...paint schemes. :rolleyes:

So is simmerspaintshop no good? :dntknw:

 

Got the colours from this article http://aircraftresourcecenter.com/Rev1/801...8274/rev837.htm

 

and yes I think I got the RGB values from simmerspaint.

 

Now I am attaching an image, it is not a work in progress I was simply checking the colours, what do you think? And yes before you say it I shouldn't give up my day job! :blink:

 

 

 

 

And anyway Gocad, while you're here, are you anygood at skinning????? :biggrin:

 

With my old eyes I reckon the top is too blue?? Anyway I think I should have asked for any Raven I wasn't to fussed that it matched my original pic. I think I have seen a Raven dark blue/grey all over

Hi USAFMTL

 

Pics of the EF-111 would be great, but a talented skinner would be better :biggrin:

 

I didn't think for a minute this skinning game was going to be easy but looking at your 522TFs, 27th TFW High res skin, how do you do the panel lines???? They look so accurate :dntknw:

 

Cheers

To be honest, I use the values from the simmerspaintshop myself. All I was trying to say was that 'going by the book' may sometimes not yield the desired results, even when you did nothing wrong.

 

And no, I have no clue when it comes to skinning.

Oh, wait... :tongue:

 

Btw, the best way to do any kind of skin is to use templates. A repainted skin won't look as good as a skin using a template, since it might be difficult to preserve certain details of the orginal skin, like the panel lines.

Not a 'new' model...just a F-111A with the appropriate bits added and deleted, painted, and new data.ini work.

 

I'm still trying to get the basic addon shapes correct. Hopefully, once that's done, snapper21 can take em and use them.

Well theres no template around for the F-111, so am trying to extract the panel lines from a standing paint scheme. Have got a two layer psd main colour on one and panel lines on another. Tried it in game as a test.

 

 

 

 

Hey Gocad tried using your underside colour as a base coat, it looks a bit white to me. Will keep experimenting and see what I get.

 

Cheers

Most shapes done...I may have a option to be able to attach shapes to the nose gear.

 

Still need to map the shapes of course.

All shapes done and mapped.

Notice how part of the lower 'canoe' is actually part of the nose gear door. These parts move with the gear door and come together to form the 'canoe' when the gear is up...just like the real EF-111.

 

All that's needed now is texturing.

Hi FastCargo

FC has an STD?

 

:biggrin:

 

 

FC, hit Sundowner up since he has the templates.

So there is a template?

 

Not available to the public, is what I said. They are huge, too large to upload to CA unless Sundowner does some serious down sizing of them. I have a lot of templates of planes that are out that, no one has but due to the sheer size of them you can't upload them. My F-16 templates for example are 2.1 GB. The F-104 (for the 3 party one) are 435 MB unzipped. The F-4 temps Ant and I use (that he made) are like 1.75GB. See what I mean.
