F-15C 3rd FW 12th FS, Elmendorf (AK) Realistic 1.0 by kurdt
Template/source psd: Valery
The 'Dirty Dozen' joins the Realistic line, with this 3rd FW 12th FS F-15C. As with all of the "Realistic" skins, this one uses the most recent "Mod-Eagle" scheme. The colors were pulled directly from photos of real F-15C aircraft from the 12th FS. Since no two jets are exactly alike due to weathering, I went with the color that I thought best represented the style. All the weathering was also based on photos (where grease tends to smear, what areas tend to stain and so forth). I tried to be subtle with the weathering while still having the desired effect. The decals and markings are as accurate as I could find, but I'm certainly not an expert.
As with all my new releases, this skin includes high resolution logos in TGA format, new custom name decals along with realistic pilot/crew names. Special thanks to Viper101 for research, beta testing and general help. Happy hunting ;D!
If anyone has suggestions for improvements or the like, please leave a comment.
