Hey, guys. I'm back to skinning again, working on VF-213 as they appeared in 2001, 2003, and 2005 deployments.


This one is taking me a little bit because I am remapping the decals. You can see why below, showing the 2001 OEF and 2003 OIF deployment skins.










Notice the paint scheme for AJ104 is very different from the others, more like the standard 3-tone TPS than the Black Lions' unique paint. I am trying to set up a decal map for the entire aircraft, not just to have custom markings but to allow for completely different paint jobs in the same squadron. Once I get this tackled, I should be able to bring you VF-213's final deployment with all 11 aircraft, including the retro bird.


Now, credit where credit is due, this idea is NOT original. Someone else came up with decal-only skins it a year or so ago. For the life of me, I can't remember who it was and I can't find the thread. So whoever you are, it was an awesome idea and I'm taking pains to follow up.
