During A.B. era 1955-1967 1-30 numbers were for 1st gruppo; 31-60 for 2nd gruppo; 61-90 3rd gruppo. From pics this seems not always true. So I decided to not implement.
If you like to divide among groups the serials this is the 5^ A.B. example in texture.ini
editing.

yeah i have it, although i think the AMI had Mk4's not Mk6's... i don't know what the difference was though

were the camos actually the same as the canadian ones?

 

but the AMI had silver sabres initially (don't know when exactly)

i guess one could you re-use the same decals, but with black numbering and use a generic silver skin

i can give it a try, but i just don't have the time at the moment

I'm pretty sure the 'euro' camo was the same; after all, weren't the Mk.4 & 6 built by Canadair?? <grin> The Mk.4 is an E equlivant, and the 6 more like the F

 

I think (pretty sure) I did a 'blank' generic NM skin; just don't remember WHICH Sabre mod might have it!  (after doing soooooooo many, even I forget sometimes!). I can find it, with a little effort, if you really need it.

 

You could also reuse the AMI white decals on the silver skin * ; you simply repaint  the R/G/B channels black. The Alpha, as it acts as a 'hold out matte', will allow the lettering to come through the correct (now black color, or any background color you wish!). 5 minutes worth of work!

 

 

* forgot to mention, that you should move them to a new /D subfolder before painting them ... after all, they'd be for a whole new skin!!

15 minutes work. skin works on both my Sabre 4 and Sabre 6 (but will be released for the 4, as these are refurbished Mk.4 for the AMI
