After making clean versions of real life Air Show T-6s with a worn version added, I started on the really weathered ones.
These have "glossy" surfaces that are pleasant to look at in-sim, it is a compromise between realism (matte surface) and making the skin look good. I still tried to make them realistic and the weathering is of the dirty surface kind rather than worn out kind.
These 3 have only a weathered version as there never was an air show version of them, sources were one or two photos or drawings and thankfully for 2 of them ( USAAC and the Israeli ) a plastic model, sometimes a plastic model is the best source if the model maker is faithful to the original,
As I have quite a nice backlog of requests, more are on their way 🙂
