This is my personal skin for my pre-ordered DFW C.V.

The reason this is not my usual theme is because I've bought RoF ICE for a friend who always liked to be my gunner in Il-2 and hopefully will score a few kills with me in Rise of Flight.
He had Waldorf's (of Muppet Show fame) face as a pilot skin, and this I wanted to continue in RoF with this theme contributed to Waldorf & Statler, the greatest stars of the Muppet Show ;)
I hope the scheme is modest enough to still be included in RoF.

The lozenge is a makeshift and custom one (edit)loosely based(/edit) on patterns used on Austro-Hungarian Aviatik fighters. Originally I intended to make the plane completely in light blue, but I don't want to go suicidal!

Doesn't look too bad to me, although I dont really like the Muppet Show theme :lol:

Just one thing (maybe its just my eyesight not seeing the effect?), the camo pattern on the Aviatik fighters differed a lot from plane to plane and was not as regular as depicted on your current scheme. I attached a few examples for you, if you want I can scan a bit of information on the topic from books and send it to you. (I was thinking about a camo pattern like that too and recently bought Aviatik D.I&D.II from the JaPo collection, it has a nice essay covering the topic in it)

*EDIT* Sorry for beeing such a smartass yet again on the camo pattern, don't want to be annoying you, but I just can't stop pointing stuff like that out when I see it :oops: :mrgreen:

Reminds me of an easter egg, do you think it'll pass "VICKS LAW"

Thou shalt not haveith any color that doth not resemble black or white.

:lol:

Hey, vonHuetz, I'm currently on X-fire. Great info on the lozenge, I guess we could put that to good use on future skins?

Lib, that last skinpack must have really pissed you off. Well, I'd be a hypocrit if I had no sympathy here…

A bit yes, but this isn't the place to discuss it. I don't think it'll get by him though. That thing would be a nightmare with HDR on, I think thats why he booted a lotta planes off. Not to say we could'ave been warned first before hand.

Oh, this screenshot was with full HDR and Bloom on… I think it's only in the name of good taste that this skin won't be accepted =)

I have "Max und Moritz" in the works! :D, great idea! Although Max&Moritz actually fit the time frame, the muppets not so much ;)

Thank you! Though, Max & Moritz is a really great theme, but as I said, it's more like a present to an oncoming new RoF user…

I must confess Viks does a good job to keep the quality level of skins equal. Of course it's an extremely strict policy, and I fell "victim" to it as well as Lib (was it the racing skin?). But do we really want to open it up completely to find us whining about uber-flashy fun skins? Not that I don't like them, but they need to be well done to please my eye. J9_Austin's pimped chrome skins for example…
