P51 Mustang

hey guys. I decided to create a scene with a p51 mustang.
Concept:


In case you can’t figure out what my terrible drawing means, I am trying to create kind of a dogfight scene where one plane is shooting at the forward plane and the forward plane is on fire and has smoke spewing out the back.

As you can see, I have already modelled the plane, but now, I am not sure really how to set up its shaders. I am going for that military green paint, but for some reason, I cannot get it to look very good.

Please comment and give me your ideas. (Also, if you know how to do airplanes, I would really love to know the best / easiest way to texture / shader them) Thanks!


I am mostly focusing on the materials because I am confident enough with my modelling skills so I know I can add details later on. I just haven’t ever gone for a rough paint job before, always like to shoot for a nice and shiny finish. See what you guys think and if you have suggestions for the shaders, I am all ears.

it really really looks like my abandoned project,
where a douglass skyraider chasing a miztsubishi zero, on Pearl Harbor
and the problems also the shader :smiley:
look, this is so messed up,
