*UPDATE* 12/2020: V2.1: Added textures for the CFT mod, to have a fitting MLU tail extension!
This is a photoreal recreation of the Belgian Air Force F-16Mlu FA-127 as it is seen flying around the skies these days.
The stenciling and weathering is about as accurate as it will get, there's reinforcement plates, custom 300 and 370 gallon fuel tanks and a PW-100 like nozzle!
A desert flightsuit for the pilot is included.
!! Due to the filesize being over 300mb you will have to download a .psd here with a link to the file, sorry for the extra step ;) !!
*UPDATE* 12/2020: V2.0: Overhauled stencils, added missing panels, redone weathering, NEW NOZZLE TEXTURE!
*UPDATE* 09/2020: Added custom normal maps to make the reinforcement plates found on MLU Vipers at structural points.
This jet flying for 349 and 31sqn is still painted in the older 'hi-viz' (orange stencils) paint scheme and is quite weathered up.
I tried my very best to recreate every spot and stain seen on this jet as it flies in the Belgian skies.
The 300gal fuel tank is also quite worn out, have a look at those dirty mechanics hands ;)
This skin is a collaboration between myself and "Wolfthrower" who did an incredible job on creating every stencil, down to the panel numbers for we which we had more than 4 months of research, material gathering and asset creation.
The exchange of ideas and expertise helped this project to achieve the highest level of quality we can provide for a viper skin.
This skin features:
*Accurate representation of the hi-viz stencils.
*New Nozzle PW-like textures!
*Features all BAF Reinforcement or Stiffener plates, added into the Normal maps
*Photo-accurate weathering of FA-127, with highly detailed roughmets, giving it the typical 'viper shine'
* Added missing panels all across the aircraft, most notably between the ventral fins.
* Custom PW-like nozzle with normal maps
* Custom normal map for a more worn look
* completely done external cockpit texture
* over 120 Vector decals and labels correctly placed in their real life locations.
* 521 panel number labels. individually placed in their correct real life places.
* glare shield labels and bolts placed in their real life locations. matching roughmet's and newly created normal map.
*New ejection seat texture
*Custom fuel tanks and weahtered Pylons
*Little easter eggs ;)
A readme is included with install instructions!
I truly hope you will enjoy flying and looking at this livery.
