Default Little Rebel - P51D Skin (WIP)

Just figured I'd post some screenshots of my first P51D Skin, and first time doing SPEC layers for a skin too.

If people are interested, when im done with it i will upload it for download.

Short Background:
P51D PZ-W 44-13737 "Little Rebel" was flown by Lt. Charles C. "Buck" Pattillo, of the 486th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group. It was his only P51 of the war.

P51 44-13737 was originally assigned to Captain Alton "AJ" Wallace in 1944 who named all of his aircraft "Little Rebel", but upon the end of Wallace's 2nd Tour in November 1944, the Aircraft was transeferred Lt Charles Pattillo, who chose to retain the Aircraft's name.

(More Information on Buck Pattillo can be found here: http://www.crazyhorseap.be/Mustangs/...kPattillo1.htm)

Ingame Screenshots (DCS 1.5):

As I mentioned in the Thread title, its still a work in-progress as I haven't added the 5 Kill Marks, the well known Blue Nose needs some touchups on the edges, and the numbers on the tail still need to be properly aligned (right side tail is way uneven.) I also want to mess with the SPEC layers a little more and try and tweak the coloring to be more accurate.

Thanks to Whiplash for his bare metal template (http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=128983)

Hi Davison,
I hope this message finds you well.
I am new to this site and honestly, I don't know anything about it, but I can offer you information on Little Rebel if that would be of interest. My grandfather was the crew chief.
