This is a skin of Captain L. P. Coombes, RNAS 10, November 1918.

 

This was the aircraft of Lawrence Coombes when he was an instructor with 204 TDS at Eastchurch in late 1918

As far as I can tell, this is Lawrence Coombes. Here are some references:

http://www.thefreelibrary.com
http://www.austehc.u...oom/COOMP01.htm

It is a good looking skin you have made there. I've not tried it out, but it looks good in the screenshot. It is nice to see some RNAS skins.

Thanks, I've been working on it for a few days, it took me a while to put it all together. I hope to be able to use it online. And thanks for the links.

I found that it was his aircraft when he was with the 204 TDS at Eastchurch in late 1918

 

Edit: If you try it out and notice anything wrong with it, if it's to bright or glossy in some areas, or somethings not right, just let me know and I'll fix it. I didn't notice anything wrong while using it but I might have missed something.

Thanks, I'll fix them and re-upload the skin, if you notice anything else just let me know. Thanks for the vote.

 

Edit: Updated the skin and link. Unfortunately I wasn't able to fix the error you pointed out, it's a problem with how the aircraft curves and not the skin itself, on the skin it appears straight so I wasn't able to fix it. I was able to fix some smaller errors that I found though.

I'll keep trying to fix that error though, hopefully I'll be able to.

Any idea when there will be a new skinpack? Or if this will be approved?

No news yet - hope springs eternal and there's still a chance that they'll be willing/able to squeeze one out during some sort of lull in the BoS/BoM/Bo? development process from the package I sent them earlier this year, but as time goes by it gets harder to be upbeat about the chances.

If they give me any sort of definite indication and a few days warning, then I might give that a try, but otherwise not likely.

You know, at first, I thought this skin was way too busy, but the more I look at it, the cooler I realize it is. Nice skin.

Just wanting to know any reason why this plane does have this busy paintings?
I know some used to have experimental paintings to check in a real flight what the effect was, to other planes or on the ground.

Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

My guess is that it was kinda like the B-24 Assembly Ships used in WW2.

 

Not sure if this is the reason but it seems like it could be close. Only other guess is that it was used to help rookie pilots see the instructor during training.

I'd say that this is the main reason. I know that Captain Les Holden of the Australian Flying Corps flew an almost all red SE5a when he was a trainer at No.6 (Training) Squadron, which was easy to spot amongst all the standard green machines.
