Hello, this next skin series I produce will be based on the P-40's. After a long while of not being sure of what plane to do next, I'll make a return to a US plane, since I've not done one since my P-51 series at mudmovers.

Having grown 'bored' of the technique I've developed for use in my Mig-3, Fw-190, and Yak 1B skins, most of my time has been spent working out the ground work for a completely new approach to skinning (at least new to me!)

(Pic removed)

Note that this is still VERY much a work in progress. Notice the rest of the plane is still white, as I've painted nothing there yet as of yet. There isn't any weathering applied either. I've taken the time to ensure that this is a reusable template, so I can make a series quickly from my more intensive efforts early on.

Let me know what you think of how this is looking.

Nice rivets and panel lines!! When you do the starboard fuselage, dont forget to leave off the battery/radio access hatch.This was only ever fitted on the port side but UBI have put it on both sides of the void.I have worked on (and flown in/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) real E and M versions so if you want any info let me know and i'll give the old grey matter a shake!!

Hello Adlabs,

Very nice looking wing!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I'm not so sure about the rest of the plane though. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif I really like what you've done with the panel line's and rivet's. Looking forward to seeing the final version. Keep it up!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif =S=

Semper Fi!! Carry On!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks for the comments guys, I've updated the screenshot to show both wings now. Headbands loosened? Or is that still white fuselage to overwhelming? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

When I see subject title, I though you find a way to beat mirror wing! Oh no, I misunderstood!

Hello again,

I've updated my pic at the top of the post to show my current progress. Everything is painted camo now, though the fuselage has no panels or rivets applied yet. These will likely be the 'final' camo colors, and the spinner will change perhaps.

SO, after some more paneling and riveting on the fuselage, I'll be painting the new cockpit, etc. (still white in pic)

I figure I'm nearing the halfway point about now.

Anyway, have a good time looking! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hello,

This is a progress pic for my P40 skin as of a couple days ago... The pic is at the top of the thread, be sure to refresh your browser cache if necessary. I've not been working on this as much as I'd like to, but next week I should be back on schedule.

BTW, I've not been able to post due to the word filter. Hope this gets through...

Almost looks like a bumpmap, it actually looks like texture on the skin. Cool!

Ok, the plane's all done. I've E-mailed it to mudmovers, and if they put it up I'll post a new thread with some final pics, as well as the link.

BTW, for those that didn't guess it, the plane was finished in NZRAF markings.

I hope to post back soon! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Probably, lol. A few of the museum and air show webpages I visited listed the version I wrote. I soon failed to notice the error anymore, I guess old habits are hard to break. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Thanks for pointing this out. I just checked the file names I uploaded to mudmovers, and I wrote it wrong on them as well! Ha!
