And wallpaper again !

Yes! two post in a day…Did that shot with a MiG render one evening, trying to fake an hdr photo with photoshop. well , it doesn’t look really hdr, but more like an old picture. And it’s my wallpaper now :)
One 1024×1024 iPad format :

And one 1600×1000…

Mainwhile here are the state of the current projects: Unwarpping Finn’s Kittyhawk is neeaaaaarly finished. Most parts are done. Still have to decide if i use two or three 4096×4096 pixels maps and place the UV cells accordingly … cause now it’s a mess.

…Didn’t work much on the spook lately… only did the fin-rudder and some few details. I’m having difficulties finding good references on the back end of the arresting hook.

    Hi Ycaker, sorry for this late response.
    I usually first draw the rivets and structures lines in Illustrator, on the UV map, then i import them as vector paths in Photoshop. So i can assign any brush shape to these vector paths. For the bigger screws and rivets, i some time place them one by one. I use some that i’ve done myself, you can find some here :
    As for some texture samples, i posted some on this thread at 
    Textures samples
    Hope this can help.

    thank you very much. looking at the samples it’s great help,
    here’s the texture that i tried before seeing your reply and your sample

    after seeing your texture samples i guess my problem was the way i unwrap the UV that caused overand under stretching.
