SPAD XIII Skin uploaded

Recommended Posts

Nbryant asked me in the "Screenshots" thread, why I don't make more "Allied" skins.

Well, I don't fly Entente very much, simply because they don't offer any Albatros.

:grin:

 

But I remembered a SPAD XIII skin for Esc.48 which I had made long ago.

I had actually thought I had uploaded it back then - but I hadn't.

Well, now I have.

 

 

 

This is a fabric new (pretty clean) SPAD, with all emblems freshly painted on to.

So, this skin may disappoint all fans of heavy weathering.

Widowmaker - know what I mean? Nudge, nudge?

Or perhaps you make your weathering on top of it?

 

However - this skin was made of an OBD skin (Sandbagger's?), so thank you guys

for all the amazing wonderful lots of skins you have created!

Very nice indeed Olham. Those Spads are mighty-fine craft. I only wish the guns came with more rounds.

Well, we are flying a WW1 simulation - so we have to make do with some limitations.

Still, we are much better off than the flyers back then - we don't burn, when we're shot down in flames.

If I ever learn how to energy dogfight instead of turn fighting, I may have to give that one a go. Very nice. It almost looked like a Vintage Aviator picture at first.

 

Besides, ALL the paint jobs were new at some point. I don't think that the aircraft came pre-weathered from the factory.

I like it too :grin:

 

Very impressive! The SPAD is a bitch to skin due to its incredible number of ribs everwhere, plus various details requiring delicate work. You managed it extremely well :drinks:

I only made an OFF skin more colourful basicly, and added the emblem, which I had found a graphic of in the web.

It is all a bit too dynamic and saturised in the colours, but I wanted exactly that.

But almost all of this skin was already there (done by Sandbagger, I guess) - I only sent it through the car wash.

No, wait, SPAD-wash.
