    I have made one as well! I hope you like it. I miss the importance of the "In Oz" part, but I haven't been here that long.

    I tried just putting the code in for easy copy and paste, but it had some scroll area with the picture in it again. :S

    I like that one Catch!

    Did you use Photoshop? If so, how did you do the background?

    Thanks! I did use Photoshop, CS3. I'll tell you exactly what I did.

    I started off with a white background as Layer 1.

    Layer 2 was this picture of a Ta 152, on normal, 100% opacity and fill.

    http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/LRG/images/ta152-6.jpg

    Layer 3 was an Aussie flag on normal, opacity and fill at 24%.

    Layer 4 was the Wilder Sau emblem off to the right on normal at 59% opacity and fill.

    Layer 5 was a gradient map in pure red (like the band on the tail) on normal at 58% opacity and fill.

    Layer 6 was a gradient map in pure yellow (once again on like on the tail) on normal at 58% opacity and fill as well.

    Layer 7 was the Ta 152 cut out, on normal at 97% opacity.

    The remainder of the layers were the text and border (Deutsch Gothic font).

    The final layer was a normal layer that was applied then sharpened to removed the fuzzy sex tape look.

    I don't know if you have PS or not, but I just assumed you did hehe. I'm a bit puzzled on text placement though. I dont think I have it right.

    I'm still trying to get layers down. I'm using a freeware called Gimp and its really good but not much choice on fonts - at least I haven't found it yet.

    Catch, that looks great!

    Thanks! You can actually download new fonts from a place called dafont.com

    There are instructions on how to use them on the site, but I've never used GIMP, heard of it though, but I don't know how it works with fonts.

    We'll be seeing alot of pink, green, purple, blue, yellow....a bit like a drug inflicted artist under the influence of LSD -- a real dalliance with psychotomimetic drugs like in the late 1950's and 60's....this promise to be good gentlemen!

    Welcome to Wurger's....
