Thanks :mrgreen: (damn you're quick!).

Once again, Imp made them and he went to great lengths trying to make sure the application of the lozenge camouflage and the wing colours is authentic or at least plausible.

Of course the tail colours are completely fictional, but any personal colours we use are derived from the squadron colours on the tail/horizontal stab and the application of them and the national markings is as realistic as possible.

Really, really nice. I like the fact that the skins look historically plausible and not gaudy like all the others.

Nice job on the stained wing too … although it looks a little to airbursh/fuzzy like, but minor.

I hopefully will have a skin done from the skin master himself soon on Frau Kuckuck ( Miss Cuckoo, which fits me to a tee! :lol: ).

Yes I am not satisfied myself but there is only so much time in a day :) So this is the best I could achieve within a reasonable time span, I had been meaning to make these for several months (~10?) and before I decide to start from scratch yet again because I don't quite like it I decided to call them finished :)


Who is the skin master himself btw?

Thank you, that is what I tried to achieve :) Which others do you mean, all the fictional skins in general or ours in particular?

I will divulge when the skin in done and with his permission …. ;)

…. all the fictional skins in general, only a small handful I like that are historically plausible, but that is just my opinion.

Please note, I cannot do any skins at all and I have tried. So all the skins done on this forum are amazing, even if they do not appeal to me. Lots of talent here
