Nice work, Gufo!
Despite the first being an add up of digits to the already existing paint job of the P-80A, you are making a wonderful job.
I do have one question though, where do you get your awesome digits?
Great work, once again.
Not just a detailing of a standard skin: first, i have corrected the livery colors (in my skin i used olive drab and neutral grey), then i have repositioned some details to work with standard decals (the original plane has the serial number right under the writing "U.S. air force". I have placed under the tail numbers... not as easy as it could seems!).
After this, it went the easy part: adding decals (for the USAF skin i use a font called "Amarillo USAF", while for the Navy livery i used the font "USN_Stencil"), some dirt (it was an operative plane in a battlefield theatre).
For the Navy livery i started with a white base, then i painted the orange part (many part to align!). After this, i painted the antiglare, the "jet intake" decals and other details. No dirt on this skin, because it was a plane used on US soil, not operative in a warzone.
