    F-16C 480th FS Spangdahlem Skin (Weathered)

    Skin is now available. Download



    10-05-2020
    Spoiler:
    Currently I'm working on a weathered version of the 480th Fighter Squadron based in Spangdahlem.

    Most of the detail can be seen up close while I try to keep the complete appearance noticeable but still realistic.

    I'm not sure if I will include bump/normal textures for every part. Most of its detail can be seen on the canopy frame, a blue/grayish sealant used to keep it pressurized, and scratches with actual depth all over the airframe.

    I also added a little bit of detail to the air refueling door with scratches and a metallic material.


    Here you can see the current progress so far.

        Many thanks!

        The skin will be uploaded as soon as I finish the engine, cockpit and normal/bump textures. I'm sure it will be this week.

                  Thank you everyone! Glad you like it. I hope to get it uploaded this weekend.

                  Here are some final screenshots, with new engine exhaust textures and new fuel tanks.

                    WOW impressive! love the Ext Tanks weathered detail on the nose. I do it to my personal liveries in the Hornet and Viper too. Glad you did it too in this incredible liverie. Thank you.

                    Waiting and waiting

                            Please tell me what you think. Any room for improvements, bugs, is it too much, too little?

                                That is a problem with the bort number system itself, I believe.

                                The bort numbers on the nose and the refueling door use the same texture or the same line to call it, except for the first digit of the 4 numbers on the nose.
                                So having gray numbers on the refueling door will get you 1 blue number and 3 gray numbers on the nose.

                                Similar problem with the RoughMets for the nose, as the numbers overlap two textures. Then you can't get RoughMets for dynamic numbers, etc. etc...

                                Could be that I'm going duum dumm and missed something or the bort number system for the F-16 is really sketchy.

                                So I went for the numbers on the refueling door, so far until I see a fix or someone enlightens me.

                                    What a great liverie. Love the Ext Tanks and all the little details on the airframe. Impressive.

                                    Maybe a non-weathered one with those fine details?

                                    Thank you.

                                      I'll put it on my list, once I start working on it I will share it here.
