I'm having so much trouble getting the spinner the way I want it. The current skin i'm working ok requires an all yellow spinner except for a thing black band around the base and i can't seem to get the band to be even.

Also how do you guys get the white spiral effect on some german aircraft?

There are two kinds of people in this world, those with loaded guns and those who dig. Start digging.

first, paint the whole spinner black, then select a brush with yellow and just dab once inside the black, and there it is!

I do't know about the spirals, but if you're using photoshop, there's a toll called liquifier, I have never tried it on occations like these but it might work.

good luck /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

To get the spiral, you need to use the filter called 'twirl'. Suppose you want a white stripe on a black spinner. Paint the spinner black, and then paint a white square that touches the top edge of the circle, and reaches to the middle, but doesn;t touch the left and right edges. Use the filter twirl (under distortion or something similar). You can modify the amount of spiralling. Hope that makes sense, play around until you get it
