Looking good Jack!

I see you went for a straight copy of the F-2 scheme, that's great!
I hesitated between that approach or to adapt the stencils to make them relevant as a "japanese F-16" not as a "F-16 in F-2 disguise", as you can see i went the second route.
The good thing is that both approches can live together, it gives choices which is good! Beside we can never have enough JASDF liveries!


As for the stencils, i spent a lot of time doing them a while back, so if you want i can send you a few that you still need, just let me know.

Thanks! The digital camoflage one of my favourites. It looks really easy; but you must draw it from pixel to pixel. Lot of hours to fitting to the UWV map. It needs a lot of patient. Many skinner just make a pixel base, and not adjusting properly. This is very damaging to the end result

I would really appreciate it. Because that's all I could do make it authentic. I don't think the Google translation is accurate
No higher quality photos found, from where I could cut off the stencils.

Yes, it's a cool livery. I know it's not an easy one, i made it for the Hornet which in a way was easier because i could have some liberties with it.


I'll do an archive of those stencils i have and send them to you in a private message.

Sure it's an easy/quick temporary solution for skin makers - before the official detailed PSD template arrives.

Oh man. I feel your pain.

We understand (may be change the UVW map) there is no official Viper template yet. However...

More than 2 year ago we got AH-1W, P-47D and Me.262 sub forums for skins but 10 days just gone since Viper EA release and still no F-16CM liveries sub forum.

This is seriously so ED-ish

Thumbdown to sub-forum creators

Can't wait to get my hands on the official template to make proper F-2 liveries!


I love your attention to details Could you do me a favor by doing the F-2 prototype as well?

Last summer i've spent a silly amount of time doing the stencils in preparation for the viper release -Sadly i could not find clear enough pictures of all the stencils (especially the underside)-.


So i am glad the resolution of the Viper's textures are high enough to keep the stencils crisp, even zoomed in, the time spent doing those stencils was not in vain afterall.


The F-2 prototype is on the to do list but first i'll do the 3 operational TFS plus ADTW (when the official template is available). As for the 30th anniversary one i don't promise to do it. What i can promise on that one is that i'll do research for clear enough pictures to paint it.
