    I knew a SeaNorris from a FS2004 forum, he was banned because he posted repaints that he claimed were his but were not. Not sure whether this is the same dubious character.

    For anyone interested, CanonUK updated his site today for the first time since last June. He's uploaded seventeen new Ki-84 and four new Ki-100 skins. They look awesome too. :cool:

    Find 'em here: Canon's IL2 Skins

    Well you can use the blank skin and edit it with photoshop. I've made my attempts...
    First you need to remove the white from the void available in all skin folders, with a special filter you can download. You do this so you can work with layers under the void so as not to affect the panel lines etc.

    You can use GIMP as well if you don't have photoshop, that's free, and you can do the same thing as remove white, if you're interested in how to do it just send me a message and I'll let you know.

    Hers a good site for templates

    Simmers Paint Shop Forums - Downloads - Templates for IL-2 Series

    I recommend using these if you want to dabble in making skins. They are a good starting point. Most of the hard work has been done but you can still add layers etc or modify existing ones. But please leave the credits alone they are well deserved.
