Default Missing cockpit marking request

There is a missing marking that was not picked up by the cockpit graphic artist on the Huey.


It is the ' EMERGENCY EXIT ' markings at the front of the cockpit,stenciled out in the same colour of the cockpit in this case grey,on the yellow trim.The yellow trim it's stencilled on is also missing from the DCS Huey cockpit,but once inside,you can see where it could fit.

See my pics to verify my request.....would it be at all possible for a skinner to be able to create this marking and trim,using the grey cockpit option please.This is not a big issue,but it would be nice to have the cockpit replicated as it should be,these markings are on every UH-1H Huey.


I have uploaded pics for left and right sides of the cockpit.


Don't take any notice of the pilot,it's the marking in frontof them that's in question,thanks.


BTW apart from the first picture,the rest of the pics are all original period Vietnam Hueys.

Thanks for that HuggyBear......btw that's a much more recent photo,and that paintwork is more than likely a repaint of the original,but it's nice to see it was still being re applied to re paints.


So you can see chaps....that this marking is on every Huey.

I know, I took it in 2003.

Most of the (post-Vietnam) photos I found on a google search seem to be like this one. Probably just because it's easier to stencil the letters than paint the whole frame.

When enlarged the resolution of the texture and modifies the graphically column is much better.
