And you didn't even know it was closed!

Generally, I've just done a re-org. As so many of my skins have been honored by being put in skin packs, a bit of a gutting was in order.

The cosmetic changes are:

- The background map of Bardney airfield has become the background for all pages, not just the 'Willing Winnie' one.

- The photos have been redone with a period rough edge and a slight shadow in place of the perfectly straight, pure white that went before.

- The RAF Harkness crest has been redone using a better, sharper base crest that I found on the web.

- The third office photo has been re-shot as it was blurry and I now have an RAF officer's service dress cap.


The practical changes are:

- Some schemes have been deleted either because they are now in skin packs or I just didn't really like them! That said, if you want something you know you've seen at some point or want a skin out of a pack, just let me know. I still retain them.

- The skins are now mostly grouped by theme rather than by plane, the Lancasters being the exceptions.

- Speaking of the Lancasters, that section is still down. I know they didn't vary much, but I do love them so. Therefore, I'm digging up some special request schemes I've done and will be making them available shortly.

But finally, and most importantly . . .

Thanks to some unearthed photos, Lancaster PD198 finally has a skin with accurate nose art. Unless something else surfaces, my tribute to her crew is now complete. Some details have also been tweaked in the story as some very kind individuals have sent some great info my way.

And don't miss the larger version of the nose art in the lower right of the page. The resolution on the skin just didn't do her justice!

As always 3dp, great work!

I'll be using one of your corsair 2 skins on an upcoming project.
