This is a nice Skin for the P51 Mustang. I don't know how historiacally correct it is but it sure does look damn nice! :rock:
This is my first attempt at skinning, and involved many long hours with Photoshop, cause I haven't used the program in years and don't know the program all that well. I wanted to make a generic "clean" (i.e. no markings) P-51 for use by myself and other skinners as a base. This one retains only the anti glare markings. As I wanted to model this as a "factory fresh" Mustang based on photos I have, I have also shined or "chromed" the main metal parts on this one, but if you don't want that, just delete the alpha channel and make your own. Note: the stock Mustang skin, as well as this one, has a problem around the canopy - the frame is transparent at certain angles. I couldn't fix it. Thanks to and inspiration from llama (great Photoshop tutorial at bf42.com), pointman (another great tutorial), shrp77 (gmakeRFA program), moseley (rfa maker that gmakeRFA is based on), why! (inpiration on the chrome look) and razor for his great P-51 skins. To use, you will need to include the zipped dds files in a texture.rfa using the rfa maker of your choice. I like gmakeRFA because you don't need some 20mb microsoft framenet download for it to work. Please distribute this freely, but I would appreciate credit for the work. - psychoslaphead email@example.com
