Panthercules, you are the Master!

I'm trying so hard to emulate what you do… but my skills are as green as the French countryside.
Your skins are great examples for all of us beginning skinners.
Thank you! :D

Love the skins. How long does it take you to do one? Do you also work full time?

LOL - yes, I do also work full time. It takes me longer than it should to do these, because even after all these skins I still have problems figuring out how different things are going to look in game than they do in PhotoShop, so I wind up having to do a lot of trial and error checking back and forth between the two to see how the skin is coming along. But it also varies a lot between skins - some go real quick because they're very similar to another one that I've already done so all I have to focus on is the minor differences between the two. Others, particularly the first one I do for any given plane type, take much longer for me.

But it's all enjoyable - kinda reminds me of my childhood days when I used to build scale models of these planes just so I could paint them, but this is way better. This way, I get to focus on the painting without messing around with the kits, knives, glue, paints and thinners, with the bonus that I get to fly around in them in RoF when I'm done, and that I get to share them with others without having to invite everybody over to my house to see them :lol:

Thanks for the kind words. Your early Jasta 5 skins were a key inspiration for me to try my hand at skinning.

I believe that there will be another set of skinpacks released along with the next update (1.016), which I think is due out some time early next month, but I'm not positive about that.
