does anyone know if there is a skin for this P-51 mustang and the P-47 thunderbolt I don't have the proper software to do it so I was wondering anyone has made one similar to this one?   or if anyone has the ability to make this in game. it would be nice if WG made some more skins like this that were used by aircraft.

There are a few players that have this skill. Ever thought of doing a forum search?

You could try starting here then search through the mods sub-forum for more of my work.

You've already researched the P-51? Are you talking about the A or the D?

  I think the skin could work for both the A and the D

yes you do you just have not down loaded yet

http://www.getpaint.net/index.html

I use paint.net its free ,and I get good results, its what I used on these just make sure you save the original in a seprate file in case you want to go back to it , or mess up.

 

and they do have some SQD paint jobs in the game already,to include " The Blue Nosed B@#$^%&&"

but just generic ,nothing specific to a certain pilot.

An update on my research so far. Keep in mind it's still very early on.

 

P-47D Razorback, very little information so far, but I am still looking, I have found it was a shared plane, with each pilot having his own nose art on each side of the plane. I will be expanding my search using the othersides nose art as a guide.

 

P-51B, Got some really good resources located, looking for some more detail stuff as there is some variation among the sources I have so far.

 

P-51D, Not much found, the plane was kind of bland really, what little I have so far is again very contradicting, and the couple black and white photos don't tell me much either. There is a fiberglass replica D model on display but it is painted in the markings of the B model which were very different.

 

At this point the B model painted onto the upgraded P-51A in game is looking to be the best bet, but I really want to do that P-47 if I can find more information. Still not making any promises.

ok ill see if I can find some more pictures for the P-47 D and the best that I know of about the D was that he used the D after his B went down.  I'm not sure but i think he might have used the same inscription on his D mustang. as for the P-47 D I'm still looking.

The images I have found of the P-51D, a couple black and white photos and drawing, show a smaller map and name then the B model.

Another famous Mustang, flown by a very famous pilot from West Virginia for you too.

those checkers on the nose make me cringe, but are doable.
