Hi, gents!!!
Let me present my new skin "Seedy Dragonfly". It's skin with looong "story". I imagined that this aircraft was restored after a big accident, got new wings and after repair, was riddled with bullets by German. So it has standard khaki wings and numerous patches all over the fuselage, wings and kiel.
It took me plenty of time to finish this skin, so when I realize that I didn't "see" it I came to decision to show it to community…maybe I would regret :lol:

Nice artwork, but I'm afraid it would make aircraft identification very difficult, especially from above :?

Well, when I painted this skin I thought mostly about dragonflies but not about identification :lol:
Seriously speaking, it was one of the tasks for me to make Camel look like dragonfly (or any other flying insect) especially from above. May be this "start point" was completly wrong…will see :)

You succeeded! :) and the unsuspecting Albatros pilot will dive on you hoping to find an easy prey, a N28 :P

I like it, particularly the dragonfly wings on the wings. Nice work.

It's got roundels, can't see how there can be misidentification.

I like it, very much in the spirit of the era, not airbrushed like some other skins. It has roundels on all sides so this should be fine. Nice work :)

One of the most intricate skins I've seen. Strong 'yes' from me.

To those voting 'no', please pull your heads from your butt. This skin clearly required loads of talent and time. Don't squash his effort for no good reason.

WOW, guys, thank you!!!! It…it ..rather unexpected and pleasant feedback…and again I'd like to ask people who vote "No" just put in words theirs vision of the skin.

….not airbrushed like some other skins…
Yep, I tried to make it look like hand brush work…a bit rude, made by pilot and his mechanic (who was not Rembrandt both) right on a field with colours which is easily accessible in that tough time.
