Hi all, I am planning on making some Japanese Pilot skins for the new addon. If some one has already done this I can just use these for my own use or if not maybe upload them to mudmovers.

Does any one have any inforumation on Japanese uniforms or any other material?

Thanks

Ah thank you so much Kimura. I did a very rough Japanese face today but he did not look too Japanese when I looked at him in the I-16 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif . I think I need to exaggerate and darken some of the features a little but not make him look too stupid.
I have been taking black and white photos of Japanese aces, this one form 1936 then colouring them in.

Hahaha, I don't know Takakura but I think he looks too friendly to be a fighter pilot. Remindes me of the English 'Terry wogan' for some reason:-

Thanks any way /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif . I also guess pilots would be between 20 and 30. Not sure on this though.

How about a Toshiro Mifune pilot skin ?

or Shunji Ikari from Evangelion for those of more animated tastes.

Veteran, Bermuda Triangle Expeditionary Force, 1993-1951.

Hi mllaneza,

If you mean 'Toshiro Mifune' from Akira kurosawa's films and shogun maybe I could do that but must be realistic no anime /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif .

Actually I have never looked there EURO_Snoopy /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif . Any thing interesting?

BTW the pilot is finished now! but now I need to add another 30 Japanese faces /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif . Any volunteers?

Also do pilots count as skins? I was thinking that was just aircraft :-\
