FSX Yak-18 Ski "Whitewash". This is a fictional repaint of Swingman's Yak18 Max Ski version with a field expedient "whitewash" paint scheme. The intent was to make the Yak-18 ski version look more in its natural environment in snow. The whitewash effect idea comes from photos of aircraft and ground vehicles that were hastily covered with white paint by hand using brushes, brooms, mops and other application methods which were often very crude and left edges and other parts uncovered by the paint. The whitewash paint would usually wear very quickly and likewise be easily removed back to the base color. By Bry Hardee.
