The one in the middle is a painted scheme of a historically accurate skin, they two on each end are historically accurate paintings.
I only do fantasy skins if I get a request.
Those are NOT my pictures. I just use them for information. I will be building foamboard aircraft with those schemes.
I bookmarked it. His skins are on a par with mine. I've been skinning since 1980.
Ah skins! What fun! I guess it depends on what you mean by the word "Skins". For clarification, are we talking about digital images created to be wrapped around a digital frame for use in computer games and simulations? Or Digital graphics created to be printed at hi-resolution on foam or paper for foam board RC planes? I ask because the above look to be wonderful examples of digital images created to be wrapped around a digital frame.
Both! I will be bringing my computer-based skins to real life on my foam aircraft. Years of research to get the right skins for the right pilots. And yes, some research is incomplete, so I use artist's license. Shame I can't just "supersize" the skins in my mod & slap them on a Dr1 & call it done. But nothing is ever that easy, is it? LOL!

Did I wake you good sir? Hope all is well and everyones healthy n safe at home.
You said it, brother!
Huh? What? **Yawn** All is well here. Hope you are the same. Been very busy and I have a feeling I will be even busier very, very soon.
That is awesome. Hopefully you have or will have solved the website issues and can gather some steam there. Be cool seeing all these new pilots and builders going that extra step and making things pretty.
Oh it's bigger than that! I solved the website issues. I closed FliteSkins for good. But as the old saying goes, when one door closes another opens. Well in this case, a door closed and a wall came down! If you have not heard, I'm now John Overstreet's graphic designer. I will be designing skins that will be printed directly onto FT pre-printed speed build kits. We will be doing older FT kits and John's Master Series planes. The new decal sheet on the Master Series kits this year? That was me. The design for the new FT Shirts. Also me. (Josh's ideas though.) I go to FT Midwest next Sunday for training on the new printer and hang with the man himself, John Overstreet. Should be awesome!

FT Mighty Mini F6F Hellcat test prints being printed directly to foam.
.. but then again nobody tells us forum people anything new and exciting hehe. ...
Congratz. that's going to be a great match between you two. I just picked up a small air brush system and have been working with that this past week and a half now.
Thanks! I think we are going to do some outstanding things in the next few years! I tried airbrushing. That takes some practice, however it's an awesome skill to have. Keep it up.
As I said in another thread, I've decided what plane I will start with: A Pfalz E.I monoplane.
Is anyone watching these vids? Everyone is so quiet.......Would you rather have pictures instead??
