NH c425 reskinnable unit available. ** UPDATED**

Ok, up for grabs is the first I hope is many blank units for people to skin.

First up, a New Haven C425 Non DB blank unit.

Yes, hosting on your site is fine. Please also consider double posting on one of the other two below.
Yes, hosting on the DLS is fine.
Yes, hosting on TPR is fine.

Play nice, put your best foot forward, and game on.

Get it at The Erecting Hall.

**UPDATE **

I have been asked if there was a PSD for this unit, unfortunately not.

All I have is the TGA. It is the same TGA that I skinned to make the NH ARN units.

Here is what I did to get things to work out.

I ended up using 2 layers for things.

For example, on the long hood of the NH unit I used 1 layer of black and changed the mixing option on the layer (Photoshop) to "Soft Light" and 100%.

The next layer is used the same black, but changed the mixing option on the layer to "Overlay" and 100%.

That method worked out nicely. Slight adjustment of color may be needed. Percentages of opacity can be adjusted.

Good Luck.

ADDITIONAL: If you are using a reallllll light color, soft light might have to change to "Hard Light" and then adjust the percentage of opacity down from 100%

What happened to the thread with all the downloads of the Alcos? It's on a Goggle search, but the link takes you to an error screen at uslw saying it's missing or or off limits. But, the cached page works but pages 2 and 3 don't work.

The original thread was going to be moved, but it accidentally was deleted.
