This Sabre Skin!

Postby Admin (Philstyle) » Fri Dec 22, 2017 7:22 am

My goodness... this is stunning. I had no idea that the engine was capable of this level of reflectivity.. the reason we don't see this to date is due to the skins being muted down. If allowed to .. shine... these aircraft REALLY can shine!

Nice.

It's a long video. Skip to 4:04 to see the aircraft roll, and thus see the reflectivity of the skin.

That's the sort of aircraft that you could ride through the gates of Valhalla, shiny and chrome!

Now is there a P-51 version? :P

There's talk of a Mig-15 one and a P51.
It seems like editing the relfection layer in the skin is the way to get the mad shine.

The B17 would benefit from a skin like this too... and a B29 in the future maybe...

The default metallic P-51 is quite a nice starting point already it seems:

Not as shiny and chrome as the Sabre, mind.

That's a great post war skin, would look great in Georgian Spring or maybe SoW '53? Where the Soviets have occupied France...
