Working on the SBD-5 for Dave's campaign. Its getting there, went with some 1944 marine markings. Hard to find many profiles or pictures of -5s in the area before then. Once I'm done tweaking I'll put the SBD-3 nosearts on em and zip em up.

Ever since I started playing IL-2 I always loved the snarling cat noseart of VF-27. Never could find a template that came with that layer and all my attempts recreate it from modelling decals and such looked crummy. I tried a couple year ago to trace the noseart from one of RONNCO's skins and failed. Gave it another try and achieved a close enough copy.

On an F6F-3 :



And an F6F-5 :



VF-27 was on the light carrier Princeton which was bombed and sunk on October 24, 1944 off the Philippines. A few of VF-27's aircraft were up and landed on other carriers which incorporated the a/c into their own air groups. Unfortunately one of the first things they did was paint out the noseart on them as it was considered non-regulation.  :censored-015:

I'm all good as it is... with the exception of the PSD layer I asked for ….. XMAS comes in October? Or maybe it's a T-DAY gift on Monday.

I forgot about that. The kill marking I use is actually just cut from a RONNCO skin. Anytime I squished the flag down that much it ended up a blur. You can easily cut one of the flags on your skin and paste it as needed.

This is basically the same skin but in two different games with 13 or 14 years of separation technologically.

I've been playing with my ding-a-ling a bunch lately.

Working it quite a bit, every night for several days straight.

I kept going and going until I was satisfied.

Would you like to see pics of my ding-a-ling?







Yes, my ding-a-ling is a skin.

What were you wierdos thinking?

PS - Quit ogling my ding-a-ling.
