Using the official template found here, we are holding a Thunderbolt livery contest. Only the top ten submissions will be chosen and included with the module. Your name will also be included in the official manual. 

 

Here are some of the requirements and details:

  • The skin must be created using this template. ( note wire frame has been added please download again )

  • The skin can be historically accurate or fictional. However, the skin must be associated with one of the countries currently present in DCS World.

 

Here are instructions for saving textures with MIP levels using NVIDIA Texture Tools for Adobe Photoshop.

 

After submitting your file to User Files, please enter the P-47D Thunderbolt Skin Competition forum topic with a screenshot and link to your file.

 

The contest will run until the 5th of March. 23:59 UTC

I'm working on a first skin but since I got the template (previous one) I can't figure out where the "mobile" propeller is in the template.
I didn't found it in any of the 4 file. In those picture I tired to modify the "engine" file too. But I don't know where it is.

Yes we really need wire frames for accurate edge painting and trimming , and my suggestion is the Competition starts from the moment when the correct template is released for everyone !

Here is my submission. 

 

This is a skin based on aircraft KJ140 serving with 30 Squadron RAF, part of the South East Asia Command, based in Jumchar, India in December 1944.

 

I've really enjoyed making this one as I feel the RAF P-47's are under-represented at the minute!

Download available here:

*Skin has been updated to reflect the feedback from Art-J. Wing roundel sizes also tweaked to match real aircraft size*

 

*Updated roughmets to reflect feedback*

 

Thanks Art-J and also to Megalax for his help with roughmets.

Weathered & worn, this American P-47D Thunderbolt is the workhorse of the WW2 Airforce fighters and has a confirmed 81 kills in aerial combat and 106 ground kills. With a very respectable record as a fighter and lead aircraft, this P-47 wears traditional colors and the nickname "WarChief" as a tribute to the brave and respected Native American warriors.

 

-Heavy weathering and chipping done to both the surface layers as well as the roughmet layers.

-The USAF logos on the side of the fuselage is more faded then the one under the wing since they get more sunlight.

-Intercooler exit doors open to show the painted USAF logo. 

-Hand made invasion stripes under the the wing to include the landing gear doors and dive brakes. 

-Reflectivity maintained throughout bare aluminum.

Some pretty cool entries here already. I cannot "un-see", however, that a few a them (Megalax's, Sprool's, Waynos', Mike's at least) share the same issue - the inner doors of intercooler outlets are grey, while they should have USAAF insignia painted on them, or fuselage camo in case of foreign birds.

Tnx for the info! I had my "Big Ass Bird II" ready to upload with the grey indoors too lol. I'll be fixing it up and finish posting it here, altough the screenshots have been taken already and I won't redo them just because of the indoors.
