Hey Carlos,

Would you happen to have a white version of Bruno's 1:300 DC-3/C-47? I did ask him first but he's busy just now. That could be my next recolor!

If you have Inkscape, you can usually load a model by Bruno, preferably one with as few markings as possible, and then delete the markings by selecting them and deleting each one. You are then left with a white version that you can save as such and recolour.

beware with that method, if you delete all the color patches, you'll have the tabs (pink lines) and alignment markers (red dotted lines on the fuselage parts) showing up under the (deleted) skin. I just colored them white in the white versions of the B-24 and Wellington (usually i prefer yellow, at least it's visible) and deleted the markings.

I'll make one when I'm home.

edit: actually, if you click on the paperclip next to this thread in the forum list you'll find a file named s&p-DC-3 C-47-1_300-usaaf-439thTCG-for_recolor.zip. It's a zipped Inkscape svg file. Lock the "tabs" and "model" layers, delete everything on the "markings" layer and change the colors to whatever you want on the "colors" layer. The colors for the wheels, windows and de-icing boots are on the "model" layer as they usually don't change between recolors.

Also ungroup everything on the colors layer if you don't want to move all of them at the same time (all elements on each layer are normally grouped together)

Here is a (quick) grey version in pdf. I just changed the olive drab patches to the same grey as the undersides. I'm sure I have a version without the cargo door at home.

That landing gear tutorial will be useful! Thank you, Bruno!

The EA-6B looks awesome! It was one of the afghan theater schemes right?

Thanks for keeping up the good work, fellows.

I only did a design and test build of the TRIM pod (not glued to the fuselage) for the A-6 and an ECM pod for the EA-6B. Two more to build + some fuel tanks. And yes, I checked on pictures: the pods and fuel tanks are grey.

Here are the 2 variants of the DC3, with or without cargo door. The zip contains an inkscape svg file.
