A good day to everybody!
I just uploaded demirrored textures for The B24Guy's overhauled stock F4F-4 Wildcat. From an original 2004 work by Jose Manuel Lopez Fuertes, the repaint depicts the aircraft flown by USMC 26-victory ace Captain Joe Foss of VMF-121, during the "dark days" of Guadalcanal defense in late 1942.
Following the same philosophy I applied last year to do a series of historical Pearl era Japanese repaints, I proceeded to copy Fuertes' demirrored details of his repaint on the original stock skin/damage files. In the process, I removed most of the extended bitmap textures "bleed" effect. The repaint includes also my partially successful attempt to correct the stock mapping error of the elevators texture.
It's obvious that MS designers realized something was wrong and they hastily applied some unrealistic black stripes in the attempt to represent the fabric covering stretched over the elevator metallic interior structure. Regrettably, the resulting display shows such lines going sideways. I tried lighter colours copying them from the rudder texture and tried to guess a distorted shape that would be then displayed straight by the model texture mapping. Not an easy task, I gave up after the hundredth attempt to straighen them up 100%. I think they do not look that bad from a distance, I hope you like them.
Damage textures and alternative blurred prop discs included.
Many thanks to Jose Manuel Lopez Fuertes for his original work and to The B24Guy. Without The B24Guy's great overhaul effort carried out on CFS2 stock aircrafts, such "eye candies" like demirrored textures could not be accomplished.
This upload answers also to the need of preserving addon creations for CFS2.
