That skin isnt black....
its just that picture is made in black and white format
the skin is just the default green + dark green camo you get with game

its not really black...
sorry to disappoint

Thanks for attention, but...

I can see some parts of graphic with colour (and I'm not saying the letters... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ) You can see the light inside cockpit or just below the wing... This is not B&W, I've tested it and there is a difference...

Nevertheless thanks.

Anymore has some clue about the skin?

The FB design crew have made it lighter to make it realistic

its black and white

When you fly FB you dont get light in the cockpit from external view like that
you can tell that its done by graphics and changed to black and white

Sorry lad,

The matted area behind the IL-2 is B&W. The A/C is in color, subdued yes, but in color. Check the "User Manual" cover. I don't remember seeing this particular skin, but I'll keep my eyes open for you. In the mean time, have a 'look-see' through www.il2skins.com (http://www.il2skins.com). It might be an interesting search.

Best of luck,

Falcon

Open up the skin files in the game folder and select the IL-2 one, copy it to your desktop and use Photoshop to remove the colour channels and replace in game folder. Now you have a black and white plane, keep the original if you want the colour back.

I did this to my Heinkel and as well I grabbed a screen shot of the ground and replaced the camo on the plane with it, now when I fly low it's hard to see me except for those damn icons.

Actually, I think the light is on the cockpit AND under the fuselage. I believe it's a reflection of a nearbye explosion. Its also under the planes left wing near the thing a ma bob that protrudes. (Yeah, I'm the technical guy..LOL....... NOT!)

Nice!, I like it, but I wish more striped paint on it, just like the banner... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And Do you know which type of IL2 is it? I thinked the type 3 but I don't recognize the gun below the wing...
