Hey everybody, my first post here.
Very nice work with all the Cubs! I really like the beat up looking BUC, and enjoy going thru the startup procedure to fly all these paints around. I would like to share a WIP I started a couple days ago with my spare time.
It is actually a J-2 I am attempting to recreate, but it should do OK on the J-3 I assume.
The aircraft is:
"1319 was a Taylor J-2 built in Bradford PA and sold to a Danish distributor for assembly and resale in Europe. It had the fuselage number OY-DUP. Evidently the Germans rounded up all the Taylor and Piper Cubs in Denmark, including an E-2 as well as the more common J-2 and J-3 models. " (quoted from HERE
Beware it does bear the swastika; it represents history, and in no way glorifies the Nazi party.
And here is a link to the 1080p screenshot of my unfinished work: IMG 1mb
If anyone can give some criticism, especially something helpful about distressed textures, that would be awesome. I still need to really dirty up the wings and finish the "Don't Shoot" part on the nose. I'm also trying hard to find the other side of the plane. And if anyone knows for sure, what colors were on the real aircraft, please do tell. I have a PDF color chart of every Luftwaffe color and just don't know which one to use due to all the source photos being sepia or black-n-white.
