Recommended Posts

First look at my SE5a.  For those wondering, the Fluer de Lis is in honor of our good friend Rebecca (WWLily).

Completed version.  I made mine a chocolate greenish/brown rather than default olive drab or PC10.  Lots of articles on how and why the original paints turned from the OD to chocolate/reddish/brown. Quote which helped me decided on this dope scheme taken from a post in the Great War Forum;

the SE5 colours I found this in Mike O'Connor's Airfields and Airmen: Somme on page 54 where Cecil Lewis describes Ball setting out on his last patrol:

Will chuck this skin up in the DL section if anyone wants it.

That is a very good looking skin, love the attention to authenticity while making it personal for the Great Battles sim.
