I've finally finished! You can now view my website, and download the last 200 of my skins (and any new ones) from


Please let me know what you think, any feedback is very welcome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The key changes between this site and my last are:

Hosted Skins: My skins are actually hosted on my website, and are not linked from il2skins.com
Pilot Index: Look up a particular pilot to see if his scheme is available
New Skins Page: My newest uploads are available for viewing on one page
Category: Still arranged by plane family and theatre, planes are now grouped by sub-type as well.

The first New Skin to be available on my site is a Bf109F-2 from the Channel Front.


Enjoy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Excellent looking site, Canon! Your skins rock, to say the least! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Its very nice to see your site up, I was wondering the skins you made in a couple of the payware addons and along with PFs ingame skins will you make those available?

Also do you plan on making different skins with those templates?

Also I have three suggestions for you and the site.

I would reorganize the labeling of your zip and skins names, also there is no need for an additional folder name inside the zip.

The way you label them are like White 21 He162.zip for example

Then the same as .bmp , Many of us like our skins organized by many different authors which make skins much easier to find and remember when we have 100+ skins in each folder.





Labeling like this keeps things more organized in out skins folder.

Zip Names
HE162_White 21_Canonuk.zip

For the Bmps


Also maybe add dates to skins added like cpt farrels site.


I also would suggest instead of having to click on.... 7-10 pages make users have to click twice to view the planetype skins

Bf-109 For example:

Poland & Battle of France

Battle of Britain

Balkans & Greece

Channel Front

North Africa

Eastern Front

Sicily & Italy

The Bomber Offensive

The Last Days

For example.. you should list them all on one page in the catagories you have, the thumbnail images are small enough for the pages to loadup on 56k quickly.

Something like this


Poland & Battle of France

[image] [Description] [date added]
[image] [Description] [date added or updated]

Battle of Britain

[image] [Description] [date added]
[image] [Description] [date added]

Balkans & Greece

Channel Front

North Africa

Eastern Front

The Last Days

Just some suggestions to downloaders and simplified quick easy navigation.

No, I'm not allowed to upload them because I was paid for them, so they are owned by various parties.

Originally posted by LeadSpitter_:Also do you plan on making different skins with those templates?

You mean the ones I used in PF? No, when I get round to some more PF aircraft I'll redo the templates, since my style and technique has improved since working on that project a year ago http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

04-27-2005, 04:06 PM
But the nda selling skins pack they are buying the actual skins right you still have rights to use your psds and create more skins with them.

04-27-2005, 04:44 PM
That's true Leadspitter, but the PSDs of the skins I made for the add-ons and PF are rather dated now, and I feel aren't up to my current standards.

04-27-2005, 05:42 PM
Looking great Canon, very easy to navigate and quick to load, even on my old dial-up.

I like the layout...using the fronts to separate the various skins is a nice touch.

Glad to see your work all in one tidy place.
This is a good day.

CanonUK, can we make requests ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Fw 190D-9 Yellow 1 of Hans Dortenmann is my absolute favorite skin ever !

If you'll ever do a Fw 190A-8 again, please consider this scheme, flown by the same pilot:


04-29-2005, 03:31 AM
I'll consider them both http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hehe, just one. You already did Dortenmann's Yellow 1 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

And that very skin happens to be my favourite.

Thought I'd give it a shot at making a wish as well! AFAIK, noone has given this paintjob a try. Canon, you interested? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Do you have a photo of that machine?

04-29-2005, 07:39 AM
Just downloaded a few 109 skins. I rarely fly it but the skins for it are just beautiful. i especialy like the E variants. Those BoB and BoFrance schemes are very pleasing, I find. Reep up the good work! really like the new site as it is so easy to navigate, even for newer users due to the pics . Great job. Don't suppose you ever do any RNZAF skins, do you?

No, I'm sorry I don't. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif I saw the painting and thought it looked nice. I can't recall seeing that particular plane anywhere else. It could be a fictitious paintjob.
