In hopeful anticipation of momentous events later this Fall (1, a RoF update which will finally deliver a viable single player career experience, and 2, a final and hopefully successful post season appearance for Bobby Cox and his band of Braves), I have finally gotten around to doing a personal skin for inclusion in the community skin packs:

(updated to cover over the brown part with blue per post below, and to add the "Lift Here" markings back on):

Not that it really matters, since I'm a single-player kind of guy and will probably never use it online, but I've kept it as "semi-historical" as I could, given the theme - after all, if the Lafayette Escadrille can have an Indian Chief's head on their planes, why not a Tomahawk? And if Arthur Laumann can have his stylized "AL" on his plane, why not a stylized "A" on mine?

Voted yes…but if i was you, i will change the original brown ;)
Blue and red doesn't look very smooth with brown (just a matter of taste!).
Maybe i would have changed this brown for your blue, or your red.
Or try an other color! :D

I already asked myself when you are going to create a skin for yourself :)

How can I say no!! ;)

(It's a yes from me - I like it it reminds me a bit of the planes used in the Red Bull Air Race but more on a WWI vibe!)

Yeah - I wondered about that. I left it brown for a couple of reasons - I thought it might make it more "Camel-looking", and this was my first time working with the Camel template (the only other Camel skin I've done was based on one of the existing squadron default skins) and I hadn't been able to figure out which one of the weird Russian-named levels was making it look strange when I tried to cover it up with my blue.

Inspired by your comment, however, I dug around some more and finally figured it out, and I think it does look better without the brown after all. First post and download file have been updated accordingly.

Thanks for the feedback :D

I believe those witnesses must have been confusing my plane with the one below - they can look similar in the black-and-white photography of the era, especially when parked far away at the end of a long line of planes at the airfield :D
