Wanted:

 

Expert level skinner, intimately familiar with Natural Metal finishes. Person is needed to assist in skinning one of the most important WW2 Allied aircraft.

Template will be provided.

Standard NDA is "don't tell nobody" (as if we all don't know this aircraft is coming!)

 

This job is being offered (ok, requested), as the main skin/ini dancer sucks at NM skins.

 

screenie below is WIP shot; not all decals are finished, nor is model fully ready.

 

If interested, and meet the requirements, contact me in this thread, or via PM

 

The WW2 Players, and I,

Thank You

thanks man!

 

I'll PM the aircraft WIP to you sometime over the next day or so. Put in a request with Veltro for some LODs fixes (mapping won't change, which is good!)

Wrench you need to turn up the reflectivity and glossines in the TEXTURESET.ini.

[TextureSet]
Name=Iraqi Silver
Nation=Iraq
StartDefaultDate=1
Specular=1.000000
Glossiness=0.500000
Reflection=0.800000

This is from my p47...I made the metal look by using real aluminium pics and selecting bits to use as each panel etc,adding weather etc is time consuming but worth it...

even with basic textures you can give look of flaky paint and metal looks...this is a flaking paint real pic I pasted and made opaque to give the wear n tear look...it also applies to bare metal...these are  from my Indian Flanker.

I tried following the 'metal working' tutorial in the KB, and came out terrible!!

Camo is easy compared to NM!!

That P47 texture is very convincing.

 

One of the things I remember from doing the F-5E, was to select a individual panels, then give them a slightly different hue/saturation/lightness compared to the surrounding panels.
