    Does anyone have a good picture of the nose art for "Fargo Express"? I'm doing a skin for IL2 and need a copy for my Mk. Thanks.

    Whilst you probably know...I will mention it anyway...just in case!

    Fargo Express, markings are HL-K has been depicted on many occasions as HL-X.

    Wow, you're right, Wayne...I always thought that was an X, but after you mentioned that, I looked and sure enough, the K is distorted by the radius of the fuselage!

    I'll have to remember and rename the file :lol:

    Glad I could help...and I learned something, so it was a win-win deal all around! :lol:

    Now we're going to be seeing that skin posted in the IL-2 screenshots thread when you're done, right? :thumbleft:

    Ahh...but it's quite simple, really!

    Load your aircraft up in Quick Mission, find a nice setting like flying over a cloud, etc...Presse P to pause the action, press F2 for an external view and zoom in with the Delete key, move the mouse around until you get that sweet angle...and press Print Screen!

    Your screenshot will be waiting for you in the IL-2 root folder (as grab0000.tga, etc) and it'll be perfect! :thumbright:
