I finally finished all details on the repaint of D-EREK, and I will upload the file to Alex tonight. Differences between the version above and the final version are: removed Swedish writing on wings, elevator and rudder; added German writing on wings; added serial number on rudder; and added IAC (In...

Beckman,

Thanks for using my repaint in your beautiful screenshots! Like Gerth said, your screenshots are always incredibly realistic, bluring the lines between simualtion and real life. Excellent work my friend!!

D-EREK repaint

This is my third try at making this repaint, and the one I am most satisfied with. So satisfied with it that I am willing to post it here for preview. The hardest thing for me was finding a font that closely matched the ones on the aircraft as what distinguishes this bird from others is the large UA...

Very nice paint, this will do in my hangar, but i have to admit that it must be a very hot day as you fly with the left door released :-D for airconditioning purposes i suppose :roll: /Gerth :lol: That is true... I had popped the doors off to snap some clear pictures of the cockpit from the outside...

Wow, thank you, I am just an amateur painter who's been playing around with Paint Shop Pro... I guess I must be my greatest critic! ;)

91D N473D Uploaded!

I am satisfied enough with the current version of N473D to upload it to Sibwings, so I have sent Andrey the .zip file. I plan on doing some updates after I fix the jagged orange stripe on the fuselage (I am still learning all this aircraft repaint stuff!) and after I add more detail to the rivets. U...

Ok, I got it done, but it took some playing around with file names to get it right... First I renamed the "S91_texture01.bmp" texture as "copy of S91_texture01.bmp", then I renamed "S91_texture04_C.bmp" as "S91_texture01.bmp". From there I went into FS Repaint and the texture showed up as it should....

Andrey, now I know why I hadn't found this texture before: this is what it looks like when I open it: http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j228/carioca74/capture_14122006_201701.jpg But in FS9 it looks fine. This is not the only texture that looks like this, others do too. Do I need to convert it befor...

Andrey, I am running into another problem. I have successfully repainted the virtual cockpit, mostly... I have looked everywhere but I cannot find the texture for the pilot's seat! Look at the picture below: http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j228/carioca74/safir/zzzzcapture_1212zz2006_222726.jpg Whe...

I think this is my favourite paint so far - thank you. I do slightly wish it had a civilian pilot though so may try copying the pilot texture over from HB-DBL. But it's a great re-paint - thanks again :wink: Check out the pilot here, a more civilian pilot: http://forum.sibwings.com/topic320.html?hi...

Thanks Andrey, I fixed it by changing the dpi to 96x96, somehow my image editor had saved it as a 199x199 dpi and that was causing the problem. Now it's fixed!

I've fixed those issues above, now I am running into a problem with the virtual cockpit textures. I repainted them to match the other textures and they look like this: http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j228/carioca74/safir/capture_10122006_141230.jpg Do I need to convert them to a different format?

Did more work on N473D today, the aircraft is looking goof but still missing some minor details. I have circled in red a few areas I need to work on, and some that I need to find on the texture. Here is picture of the whole aircraft, showing the new orange stripes on the rudder and wings. http://i81...

91D N473D preview

I am taking a stab at painting this aircraft, but unfortunately the paint kit available doesn't work with PSP9, so I am using the default HB-DBL textures and modifying them to my liking. It's a bit of a struggle as I am working with Abacus' FS Repaint and PSP9. One of the things I am losing is rivet...
