I wasn't going to bother submitting any other skins due to the fact that it's most likely a waste of time, but I just couldn't resist submitting this one  ;)  

 

Wulfe's Fokker Dr.I Triplane: 

Featuring Black upper wingtips, late-war crosses individually hand-painted over old iron crosses, hand-painted 'W' insignia and 'realistic' marks / blemishes (slight weathering where pilot would enter / exit the plane, white paint droplets where the W was 'painted' on, etc.

Fabulous skin, Wulfe. I'd fire the mechanic or ask him to be more careful with the paint slop. He owes you a drink or two.  :icon_e_wink:  :icon_lol:

{...} late-war crosses individually hand-painted over old iron crosses, {...}

 

Did that actually happen?  Is this idea based on any particular historical photographs?  Was it common practice?

Yes. Before dimensions of new Balkankross were standardised, instruction simply said Iron Cross shape must be turned into crosses. They were repainted with minimal effort.

It's just as Trupo says. When the Balkenkreuz was first introduced pilots would pretty much just paint over the existing Iron Cross insignia on their planes! I chose to go for a particularly 'crude' depiction of this, but if you look around a bit you'll find plenty illustrations of German planes with thick Balkenkreuz that had been painted over Iron Crosses, preceding the later standardised markings. I like to refer to the thick BK as the 'transition cross'  ;)

I love it!

 

Not to derail this thread, but I reckon IL-2 BoX (and thus FC soon) have open skins submissions, yes? Maybe the same should happen for RoF.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what 'open skins submissions' are...I don't have any of the BoX games! 

Either way, I'm waiting on FC so that I can finally get my personal skins in multiplayer  ;)
