I was wondering how do you put nose art on your aircraft? I found the directory with the nose art in it but how do I put it on a airplane?

In your arming section near the bottom right is an area called nose art. You select it just as you would select a skin.

We have nose art for the bombers , what about nose art for fighters?

The only nose art I have seen on fighters are the ones that are part of a total "skin".

Is there no way that nose art can be added to fighters the way its added to bombers,with a drop down menu?

The p-38 has nose arts for sure, not sure of the others do since I am at work but will check when I get home.

The P-51D,P-47D27,and P-40E can have nose art applied as long you fly them for the US.

Yes, just remember the top half of the square is for the left side of the plane, and the bottom half for the right.

edit: and 256 colors!

Is a video available to show how to apply nose art? I've wathced a few on painting. I am totally new to photoshop.

The other thing to remember is the artwork is 256 wide by 512 tall (think two 256 x 256 boxes stacked on top of each other). Total file size is 29kb, 256 color, index color, 8bit I think. It's been awhile since I've played with this.
