Hello,

I've completed and uploaded my second P40M skin, this one representing Geoffrey Bryson Fisken's Wairarapa Wild Cat NZ3072, July 1943. Fisken is New Zealand's highest scoring Pacific pilot, with 11 kills.

A short while back I posted when my Wairarapa Wild Cat(II) was posted for upload at mudmovers. This skin shows NZ3009, as restored in New Zealand, and completes my pair of Wild Cats...

I've yet to see a skin that screams "shoot me! Not my wingman!" quite so loudly.


Its cool tho.

As far as I can see the bright white lines are attempts to trick NME pilots into misjudging the attitude/orientation of the aircraft. The human brain loves straight lines and angles when working out mental math such as deflection shooting.

Nice skin too.

NIce skin Adlab..definately add it to my Kiwi collection! I think the white lines are purely for ID of friendlies...later on the whole tail section was painted white to aid this. Also the overall green camo colour used to weather quite quickly in the hot Pacific sun, the dark green becoming a colour similar to chromate green that was used in the cockpits....possible idea for a further skin!???

NIce work...keep it up!

Yes, I may well do something like this. If I do I'll be uploading it to my il2skins account, since I had only planned these two skins as a "set" for my mudmovers page.
