Guys,

Am looking for a skin for this quite famous SE5a, flown by the Kiwi CO of 74sq in Sept 1918, Major Keith 'Grid' Caldwell.

It is the one he jumped out of at low level after a midair collision, and survived. (http://www.cambridge...th Caldwell.htm)

 

I've looked thru the big list of officially released skins and couldn't find it, but someone may have made one privately and like to share, or perhaps even create :)

 

I like the colours used in this model diorama, they have a more mud/khaki tone. Kudos to the diorama builder btw!

The lowest picture is from a fullsize diorama of the scene from a museum in NZ.

Seems it's not currently available.
If any skin creator has a little spare time, I think this would be a useful one to create.
Thanks

Hiya, 2 versions for you, one with default template and one I have calmed down a little.

 

Cheers!

Those look fantastic!
Thank you very much Gooseh.
I have no idea how you get the natural look and detail done so quickly and well.
Look forward to trying them out tonight.
Cheers,
Paul

Fortunately, Gooseh, your skin will live much longer than most threads on this forum.

 

Nice work.
