Talk about trivial, but I get a kick out of some of my pilot skins. For a while I was making historical skins of actual pilots. However, the responsibility of flying with an actual person's life in my hands was to large of a burden. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Seriously, there's some remorse involved when it says "Pilot Killed" and it was my great-uncle in the plane (he was a fighter ace with the Checkertail Clan).

I guess that's why I now fly with fictional movie characters. The three I use the most are (in no particular order):

John Wayne from True Grit. Skin I downloaded from Flying-Legends.net. Love the eye patch, although it makes it tough to check my six. But not nearly as hard as when I flew with the Helen Keller pilot skin. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif That'll be the next skin I make, but I'll have to turn off the monitor and speakers when I fly to make it realistic. Okay, I'm going to hell.

Jules from Pulp Fiction. Made this one myself, complete with afro texture, black suit/tie, and Samuel L Jackson's scowling face. His plane is the one that says "Bad Motherf----" on it.

Jack Nicolson from The Shining. Also made this one myself. Anytime I have to bail, it makes me feel better to see the deranged pilot's expression from the scene where he says, "Heeere's JOHNNY!" No matter what happens, the psycho pilot always has his mouth open, wild eyes, and teeth flashing.

How about yourself?

Mine is Elefant's IJAAF pilot from FL.

I wouldn't mind a David Hasselhoff skin though. Just think how great it'd look when you bail out over the coast and have him run along the beach http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

You inspired me. Hasselhoff skin is created. I uploaded it on Flying-Legends along with a few of my other less than stellar creations (Jules, Shining, Good Bad Ugly, Josey Wales).

Creepiest Pilot skin. Ever!

But it is funny as hell.

My favorite skin is the "Wild" Bill Kelso skin from 1941.

AARRGh STOP REPOSTING IT!!!

I've put my own face on the 3rd party pilot skins of a few airforces. Invariably I'll forget to change uniforms with the planes and find I'm wearing a Luftwaffe uniform in a USN Wildcat...

Ok, there is just plain no excuse for inflicting beefcake Hasselhof shots on us.

I think even Billfish would complain....


BACK on the subject, I have a couple of movie skins I use on occasion. I have IJAAF skin of Toshiro Mifune, and a Jim Belushi skin from 1942 I have been known to fly with on occasion. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ok, while I agree that Hasselhof is a stomach churning foray in to bad taste, threating us with a naked Nancy Pelosi is like fumigating the kitchen with a tac nuke just to bag a few roaches! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You ... you ... you guys are disturbed!

For personal skins, I took one of FBS wonderful RAF pilot skins and painted the biggest moustache I could on him. Now he looks like any aviator in any Monty Python sketch.
