My pilot comes from a long line of bratwurst chefs.




His crate's design is pretty simple. I didn't want to stray too far from the coloring of my new team. The lucky horseshoe (stolen from an NFL-Indianapolis Colts helmet) is a little large, but I can make it work. Behind him is a stock Jasta 12 Alb D.II for comparison.




Another comparison of the top half. The upper fuselage is reddish due to that coloring on the rudder. I didn't think camo would go well with a black fuselage so greyed it out.



An interesting side effect is my stabilizer is entirely invisible when flying over clouds.

I did very little with the lower fuselage, intentionally because of the wooden coloring of part of the rudder.




I've probably done better (I've definitely done worse) but I like the simple aesthetics.

Let's fly!

Rick, wonderful idea, I'm in. Now I need to go and study your skinning tutorial, to see if I can come up with something, in time for the start!

Glad you're on board! Have a go at it and throw up any questions you have and we'll see if we can help!

I hope a horseshoe that big brings us all luck, CatKnight! thumbsup

Since September is likely to have very little flying in DiD and I'm finding my German pilot in the Centennial too boring to fly, I'm in for this one.



I have been working on a skin for von BonBon, but I'm not happy with what I have yet. Hopefully I will show something decent before he dies.

gaw, I save everything, (and my place looks like it), so of course I still have your livery from the last challenge. You have mail Sir, and in your mail is not only the skin you requested but a little something extra you may find useful right about now:



Enjoy!

Rick, it was a simple one to knock together as I had the graphics built from gaw's prize of last year:




Also Rick, as it looks like you missed my earlier post in this thread, I have again offered a custom skin as a prize for this challenge, to complement the wonderful book Robert has graciously offered.

You folks are doing some wonderful work. Nice skins. Thank you Robert and Lou for your generosity!

I know it's Summer, but I'll wear my Winter-Coat anyway. I like it.

hee hee, shows how observant I can be Rick. More coffee - STAT! biggrin

Mark, you are more than welcome, and thank you for your generosity as well Sir.

EDIT: Nietzsche, you snuck that one in while I was posting. Very interesting camo, has an almost naval quality to it. Well done.

Thanks, Lou :-)
We had this Discussion a While ago, where we wondered, why no Plane was using these "Battleship-Camos". Well, one was using it (at least some Kind of) - we all have a Picture of it. It appears from Time to Time on the "Waiting-Screen", when flying for the Entente...

This snake changed his skin...if that's permissible...same pilot, same discreditable career arc. Thanks RAF.....I do love that eel!

You are quite welcome Gordy, glad you like it. BTW, is that a Strutter you and your wingman are having a go-round with? Between you two and the Archie it doesn't look like that Sop has a prayer.

It is.....I did manage to bag him......no doubt poaching on someone else's work. One of those single gun forward chaps....easy meat....a welcome break from those impossible Noops darting about or the terrifying Spads. Seems the lumbering D2 is no kind of match for a Spad and I've yet to find an angle that works.....running's no good as the Spad's a LOT faster. I cravenly dart for the dirt and land to sneak out another day and shoot someone in the back......hell of a war!!!
