Recommended Posts

I wanted to create my own first skin for the Huey and tried to get it running for Hours, thank god Todd showed up and showed me how to get it working, thanks again Todd!

 

Its one of the latest Hueys that flew for the US Army as a Medevac Version from Fort Rucker AL. I tried to make it look worn out, well however you have decide for yourself if you want to use it or not I guess.

 

This is how it looks:

Very nice ! This is my favorite so far, I use it now for "training flights" outside of missions when I just do some landings and stuff. Thank you !

 

Please ED/Belsimtek, as I wrote elsewhere we need a MASH-Object with red cross helipads, tents with red crosses etc, maybe as a FARP-"light" where you can get fuel and maybe repairs but no weapons or so...

Looks great! Maybe something that we as the Huey community must do is decide on a generic Medevac skin.

 

Mission designers are gonna gave a terrible time designing using a skin that everyone has. If we can maybe have a poll on a certain skin and everybody downloads it, similar to the default UN skin.

 

I think it will eliminate useless downloads for every mission. I'm talking in general here.

 

This skin will get my vote!

Skin should be added to the default skins. :)

 

I think that the whole skin management could be improved. the current system is clunky to say the least. Why can't we simply select skins from the user-side instead of the server side.

Looks great! Shouldn't have guns, though...

I see what I can do for ya ;)

 

Here is the latest Version of my Huey currently getting uploaded to the DCS Website, I will let you guys know when its available.

 

Changes:

 

Reworked the Medevac Signs (they are more realistic now)

 

Added alot of Scratches and Oil Spots just like the real Huey

 

Reworked the Hueys color so that it looks more "worn out"

 

Have fun with it.

LtSeahawk, that is an awesome skin! Minus the "Flat Iron" on the door, it would make a great generic medevac skin. The only comment I would add is that, back in 1976-77, when I was going through flight school at Ft Ruker, the Flat Iron ships were painted white with red bands aroun the tail boom and nose. I admit that, after 40 years, my memory may be a bit foggy, but I did get a ride in one while a WOC there and I'm pretty sure that it was white, very much like the paint scheme the helicopters stationed up in Alaska had.

 

I agree with the others though, this should be added to the stock skins by Belsimtec :thumbup:

Yes, white liveries were used commonly, but I saw some green ones too http://www.fireballmodels.info/images/FMD-15_3.jpg . The only real life photos are from nowdays, so that's all I have ;)

 

As for generic medevac you're 100% right, maybe the upper nose could get black paint though.

Samek, I've no doubt you are correct. As for the nose, I don't remember ever seeing any of the UH-1H's that I flew in the Army from '77-80 with a black nose. This was probably due to the very dark and flat IR suppresant paint schemes they had, which appears to be the same on the Flat Iron skin. A truly beautiful job!

Samek please can you check this and tell me if it's good or not ?

Bye, Skull.

 

Thank you very much!

@AG-51_Razor

Sorry, I wasn't clear, I thinking about generic Vietnam era paint scheme, which has nothing to do with Flat Iron theme indeed! Anyways, this repaint is beautiful, deserves to be included with DCS!
