Anyone have a better pic of this logo? (Bitburg Wing King)

Recommended Posts

Bitburg Wing King in 1986.  i believe it has to do with American German Tricentennial (still wrapping my head around that one)

i think i got it close, but would like to get it better. Esp since DCS didnt bother with it :biggrin:

much appreciated

between that and other research, have figured out it was the Skyblazers patch from the F-105 era. although in the photo i think it doesnt actually have the skyblazer name.

now i can jimmy up a better scratch decal though

way better than before, tho still unsure if the skyblazer title was on. ravenclaws posted profile says yes, ABpic's library and other real photos say no. so i did options for both

available

Thank you, on teh decal it appears there is some writing but not in red, and i dont think its "Skyblazers". but zooming in wrecks the detail. i will keep it as is for now

that bottom pic isnt totally correct, as they were a TACTICAL Fighter Wing at the time. but i got that already from the disc insignia for even earlier in teh Bitburg era

that lasso tool can be useful sometimes :biggrin:

sadly, i think i will have the most correct version, but to add it in with the line birds the placement has to be somewhat off (mesh issues). alot of the profile arts are just abit off from the photos, and DCS didnt even bother with the Skyblazer logo on the left. cant speak to FSX (if they even have this skin

debating a  what if reconstituted Skyblazers tho, that could be all the wing kings and insignia on skin.......

thank you everyone for the assistance

scientific wild ass guess, but this is how it will release (best judgement from provided pics and my own google fu). damn near completely scratch made (ok plane silhouettes are from patch, and i didnt draw Europe )
