Gull Grey A-6 Intruder Skin for Third-Wire model

 

Update by Gerwin 6-4-2008

 

DESCRIPTION:

I noticed the Navy Aircraft skins in WOV have been skinned

quite consistend in color and style

...except for the A-6A that is.

This skin seems to be a more blue-ish grey and the weathering

is rather thick and black.

 

I tried to overhaul the original existing skin to better fit

between the other aircraft:

The Base colors are now exactly the same as the F-8 and A-7.

The weathering was toned down and various details have been

adjusted. Also I replaced the style of the nose cone and the

fuselage air-brakes. On itself the white and yellow nose cones

and the white/grey airbrakes represent real-life appearance,

yet I do not know in which squadrons and in what

combination they actually appeared.

This skin does not include custom decals.

 

INSTALLATION:

Copy the included folder with contents to the folder that contains

the A-6 files, for example:

WOV\Objects\Aircraft\A-6A

When in the game select the skin in the loadout screen.

 

If you prefer the yellow nose cone you have to rename:

A-6_Texture5.bmp to A-6_Texture5_whitenose.bmp

A-6_Texture5_yellownose.bmp to A-6_Texture5.bmp

 

THANKS TO:

Third Wire for the Strike Fighters Based Games

JSF_Aggie for the recolored nose cone parts

You did a nice job, and this was way overdue. Well worth the download for anyone that does not spend the money on the Razbam model.

 

You are right about the speed brakes on the fuselage. Once these were sealed off, the original black was usually overpainted in the fuselage grey/white, and A-6Es I think were seen without the holes. The nose colors were black from Grumman originally, then a mod came out and they were white to tan in color, or painted grey/white as fuselage.

glad to hear there is a need for the skin!

The WoV A-6A model itself is quite nice as far as I can tell. Only the canopy glass should bulge out a little more. I don't see much external differences between this model and an A-6E version (without TRAM). So it could serve neatly for that version as well (giving it some chaff an flare).
