Cool skin Sid! Definitely voting yes. :S!: I like the 4 Aces on the wing & fuselage. I also thought it was funny how you were able to put your name on the plane. If I ever stumble upon a plane marked "AH - S" in multiplayer, I'll know who I'm dealing with :lol:. How long did it take to make the skin?

Thanks Image, it's loosely based around “Paddy Bird” (one of only two surviving RE8s in existence), with the addition of our Squad 'Cards' graphic and individual callsign.

The first skin I did took me weeks to do, but I've got that down to around 20-30 hours work for each skin depending on the complexity of the skin.

This one took a little longer due to the fiddly way the ailerons map on to the skin, so it took quite awhile aligning the roundels, cards, & callsign.

Nice work! Can I ask you what font you usually use? seems to fit the era very well, I'm interested in using it myself.

Thanks Guys Image


The callsign letters are in 'Plantagenet Cherokee'

The name script is in 'Lainie Day'

The tail numbers are in standard 'Arial' set at an 80% width.

Thanks, that Plantagenet Cherokee was the one I was looking for.

Just got back into making skins again and some new fonts can't hurt :S!:
