I will not promise anything with regards to the F-16 but everything considered I regard it as fairly likely to happen at some point.
Making the textures itself will not be much of a problem nor will making adjustments. You can get very far with HSB adjustments, transparency and turning on and off layers. The challenge really will be the accuracy of it.
I think a good approach will simply be to look at pictures (while naturally considering the lightning in the picture). The pattern itself might not be perfect from this method but it should make it possible to make something that look fairly close to what the aircraft really does. Model kit sites can actually also be a great help here as they sometimes have an index of what paint types fit a given aircraft as well as providing a sample where I can get a hex-code from.
I might have to experiment a bit with a combination of dirt, weathering together with even weak patterns just to help break up surfaces of completely uniform colour. Those tend to stand out.
Alternatively there is always the option making something like thishttps://i0.wp.com/fightersweep.com/wp-c ... 1200&ssl=1
The problem though is that these patterns can take several hours to make and honestly there is a limit to how many anniversary paint schemes I want to do.
I will try and see if I can create something from all the pictures linked to in this thread.
For now here is my initial take of the F-15I Ra'am. I have mainly taken inspiration from the 69th "hammers" squadron. no.241 is part of this squadron from what I can tell and the camouflage pattern is hopefully not too far off.
I still need to do some weathering on this aircraft but other than that it is probably not that far from being completed.
For the record that eagles head on the tail by far took the most time which is why I am a bit hesitant to committing to an entire plane with that level of details.
Also I am very likely to disappear for a bit on the 17th. as I will be spending some days playing NieR: Automata. Yes I know I will like it and spend some time with it as I already have done so on PS4. I might actually install bootcamp on this computer just to have it on a mobile platform.
Just a few minutes before typing this I noticed that I have an add for Mass Effect: Andromeda in my inbox and came to think "why is it that I find this game so interesting while I could hardly care less about Bioware's game"?
So far I have come to the conclusion that it is probably down to that I find the gameplay itself fairly lacklustre, the plot being somewhat formulaic (it is well written though) and most main characters have plot armour so strong that would make the designers of the Cheyenne and Yamantau facilities envious.
