Well, the skin is for his use in multiplayer only, nobody's asking anyone else to use it. It's not like von Richtofen had to go to a committee just to ask to paint his plane red.

And it's a Bf 110 :P

I made the image from scratch in 2 hours of work. I wanted it to be like the P40s of Africa, where there was an engine in the way.

I respect that you may want it slightly different, but don't refer to it as "cheap".

The Poll system is broken, its only there to see if the majority of players are at least ok with the skin.

I like my skin. I don't expect you to have to like it Dutch, but the derogatory use of copy and paste is rather offensive. I already said I based this off an existing paint job of a P40, where the mouth didnt go all the way around because the engine was in the way.

Well, you're pretty safe, Wings. People who vote in the polls will go for the most butt ugly skins you can imagine (and this is one of them, BTW).

I don't vote on or download fantasy skins, so I'll never see it. My primary objection is that the shark's teeth are a WWII symbol, not WWI. And even more specifically to the AVG Group or Flying Tigers (or Notth Africa if you prefer). It's an icon. Has nothing to do with The Great War.

I dont agree with that statement, because my WW1 symbol before was not even considered. Swastika or not, it was a symbol off WW1, not 2.

Now you are talking about personal taste, I was talking about doing the proper job, guess that is the function of the poll. Or can I also vote no, based on personal taste :?:

I rarely vote on fantasy skins, but when I do I vote Yes for that are realistic enough that they could be the real deal and No for those that are just silly. In any case, it doesn't matter since I don't download the fantasy skins and never will see them. Just my little squeak of protest against totally unrealistic skins.

Tom you really think this could have never happened?

I already posted proof the germans were putting mouths on their aircraft. Would it have been impossible for a plucky FE pilot to take the idea? No I don't think so.

Well, I know the British did a crocodile smile on one Biff used for training (someone, I think Lou, did this skin):

But I still think it's ugly.

And you can't go by dog. He's only got one eye. :mrgreen:

Not sure about looking like a p40. It looks more like Glottis from Grim Fandango. Except its not orange.. Now there's an idea..

Voted yes.

I was thinking though that it might look better if the eyes were further apart putting them a little further back on the sides.



Clueless is the objection to a fictional skin painted like the StarShip Enterprise because it's not period specific. :roll:

Poll concluded; thread locked.

[edit] BTW, certain posts in the Dutch2/Cybermat exchange in the thread above that strayed a bit off topic have been deleted per the request received by PM - the participants appear to have resolved any misunderstandings via PM (as it should happen).

BTW - the crocodile Bristol skin mentioned in one of the posts above was one of mine - F2BF2_No7TS_Croc.dds, which is available in Historical Skin Pack Volume 8.

Personally, I think she's a beauty :) :

(Note - for those interested in why the in-game skin checkerboard is red/white and the picture in the post above has it as black/white, check out this thread for the discussion of the evolution of this paint job over time: Bristol F2B (F.II) - RFC No.7 Training School - Crocodile )
