Has anyone created a skin to make the IL-40 look like a B1-B Lancer (AKA Bone)?

Just a thought and I am not a creative genius like some of you.  

 

But, there seems to be a huge opportunity to make the IL-40 into a B1-B Lancer.  Just noticed that the other night and thought hmmmmm....  One of these graphics geniuses could figure it out.  

 

Whaddaya think?

Please, no.  Do not go there.  You have no idea of my political leanings and I am offended by the implications you offer.  Please retract or I will be forced to report you to higher authorities.

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Not a necro, so aside for the Ace of sidetrack, what do you creative people think of the OP?  The more I look at the T9 plane, the more I think it could be made into a B1-B from one of you artists.  

 

Let me know.  No money involved, but hey, If you are a tuber or a twitcher I will gladly flight up in our IL-40/B1-[edited].  Would make a great video. 

 

[Edit:  The -B was auto-edited???  Literally, I had IL-40/B1-B that was it, and the extra B was edited.  Is that code for something?]

I made an IL-20 into a Zebra, but I don't do realistic skins.

Spoiler

The models are quite different: IL-40 has intakes on the 2 sides, whereas B-1B has them under the wings.

That's a stretch making the similarities. But I don't think it would be hard to do. I'm thinking you basically gray out the Russian skin and add a few of the details to the nose area. I've never done it to WoWP models, wouldn't know where to begin. Use to do it for my old CFS airplanes from the 90's.

Download (unzip it inside res_mod folder, usually C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes_NA\res_mods\2.0.3.0)

 

PS. There's a way to remove the red star fiddling with some .xml file, but I had some bad experiences with it on earlier versions (1.x), maybe someone could tell how it is done
