Seeing the A6M next to the other planes tho it looks too dark, I’m gona make a lighter version & see how that looks, hmm the propeller needs to be darker too...

The G-38 is a heavy fighter designed in 1936, unfortunately the whole project was cancelled just as work on the prototype started. I made it cos well... it looks uber cool :D

It has got to be hard being a perfectionist like you... :p
On the other hand, that's just a mere percentage of what we have to bear...
those new pics make me want to play, and knowing some more are on the way... :D

Er... you just added the yellow. :p

(we should work together like that more :p )

Well, it would certainly be less work for one of us! :p (J/k)

I disagree. I think it looks better (afterall, silver looks more grey than white when in shadow). Also, the propellor lookes better in darkish grey than black because:
1) If it moves fast you can't really see it.
2) If it moves slow enough to see, the darker colours make it look comical whereas the grey colours suggest the more blurred tones of a faster-moving component.

If any of those aught to be redone...it's the Soviet plane. It's white. That gives it the image of the Zero...perhaps change the colour to the more standard green.

The Zero itself looks great, though. That said, they all look great to me.

<sigh> you know I did more then that... :) I'm not gona get into a petty argument over it tho, so what ever.

If any of those aught to be redone...it's the Soviet plane. It's white. That gives it the image of the Zero...perhaps change the colour to the more standard green.

The only pics I have of the G-38 are of it in the soviet winter colours, so that's what I made it in.

hey I thought of a good idear. you know how the units look different in snow levels, well why don't you use your mod magic to make it so that everything is in snow camo at winter matches just how they ake the units more snowier (best example is the seal)

although, since I know nothing about modding I doubt that it would work, but t did that would be cool.

I think one thing is even more important than adding skins for each terrain type .... for the love of god get rid of those damn RA2 team colours :lol: your planes would look even better without purple tails. :)

after all this time already... :lol:

unless its hard-coded or whatever in which case disregard this suggestion :lol:
