Work in progress

Feint released screenshots of his reskin of BIS Hercules C-130 as an AC-130 Spooky Gunship on our forums.

Quote Feint:
I'm working on a reskin of the stock BIS C-130 plane in an AC-130U livery. These are still very much a work in progress, but here's what I've accomplished today:

Things left to do:
    1 - Remask underbelly to white with soft spraypaint fade
    2 - Paint 50% of drop tanks
    3 - Find and Paint vents and other items coming up white/lt gray
    4 - Look at color mismatch at rear of plane
    5 - Finish painting nose
    6 - Paint engines
    7 - Redo escape hatches with more weathering
    8 - Add mud to tires and underbelly
    9 - Increase dirtiness of skin (more weathering, more paint peeling)
    10 - Add yellow lettering to prop blades
    11 - Change stairs to red stripes (maybe)
    12 - Redo exhaust on tail and main wings
    13 - Move tail lettering back one panel
    14 - Add red decal to main gear housing
    15 - Add APU details
    16 - Color roof disk black (maybe)
    17 - Move side "wings" forward, down, and reduce size by 30%
    18 - Reduce size of "Spooky" and remove desat layer
    19 - Add lettering to side of cockpit (C-130U, for maintenance, only use JP blah blah blah)
    20 - Reduce thickness of door stripe by 75%
    21 - Add cockpit lettering and thing on the roof
    22 - Add details overall
    23 - Figure out what else has to be done
