How much time does it take to make one? Would an enthusiastic student be willing to make 1 for me for a reasonable fee?

Difficulty depends on what you want, how much needs to be changed as adapting other skins can be fairly easy. Do you have a picture of what you want

The Dutch Don't have a FA-18C, the most logical thing would be to copy the Dutch F-16 skin, see the link for some pictures (https://www.defensie.nl/onderwerpen/materieel/vliegtuigen-en-helikopters/f-16).

I find that this layout the little red-white-blue (dutch flag) circle, which I find looks cool.

F-16 in de lucht

 

 

Or create a skin on based on the Dutch F-35, https://www.defensie.nl/onderwerpen/materieel/vliegtuigen-en-helikopters/f-35-gevechtsvliegtuig, where I noticed the the red-white-blue circle has become 3 shades of grey.

Het onderhoud aan de F-35 gebeurt met het logistiek beheer- en informatiesysteem ALIS (autonomic logistics information system).

Best thing to do would be find a skin that has this two tone grey, I would think that would be easy, Then modify it to add your own roundels and markings. Have you any experience with photoshop or open source versions?

Hi Hoirtel,

 

Thank you for your time.

 

I am 56 years old, I have a tiny bit of photoshop experience but I removed the program long ago (never really used it). If there is a manual online on how to do it, that would help. 

 

You say finding a skin that has 2 tone grey is easy, I would not know where to start yet. I have just purchased DCS and am still waiting for my Hotas to arrive (in 1-2 weeks time). Just preparing to make this as cool as possible 🙂

Oh right, sorry. Have a look through the user files on the website. This is where all the community skins come from you may well find something that already does what you want. If you find something that comes close and just needs a bit of tweaking. I'm sure someone will do it, I will. I'm no expert skinner but I do have PS experience and have modified some of my favourite skins to add my own name and/or markings. I only have limited time so prefer flying to skinning! The user files are great but lack some keyword searching. You can also try just a google search and look for the links to the DCS user files. You can also ask in the skinning forums too.
