Well.. Any other question arises ? If not I do believe you can simple use texture from I-IEAQ as sourse for propeller and small keels

Hi Guys!

Maybe some of you can help me...?

I have created some repaint for the BirdDog but seems not be able to save it in the correct format - plane turns up with the "blue" FSX texture...
I have converted the photoshop file to DDS 5 - is this not correct?
Please guide me how to do if anyone have time...

Andrey:
I have downloaded the NAM texture but it keeps getting FSX to crash...
Could you please check or point out what I'm doing wrong.
Can you also post the aircraft.cfg input for this texture - it is missing in the texture download.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks MangoTango and well done for sorting out your problem.

This is it so far. Re paint kit I notice that the shading is wrong on some parts like the undercart legs and tail planes.

I also cant find where the wing struts are located - i need to weather them a bit.

Hi Gajit!

Great job!
What did you do with the legs? I also noticed that they are not 100% correct... Way to "shady" and dark. But I have a hard time figure them out...

Well I need also to dust up my texture. It is a little to clean.
Here is the original.

O1_texture05_T you'll find them there.

What is "legs" what do you mean ?

Textures maps could be bit different from one version to another.

Hi Andrey

The undercart legs - one is shaded both sides - the other is not shaded at all.

Also the tailplanes are shaded on the top in the kit.

Andrey wrote:Dear friends,
As you have already noticed Sibwings Bird Dog doesn't include many liveries, just four, however there are a lot of interesting O-1 repaints all over the world.
It was our strategy, we were focused on mdls, different cockpits, eight pilots, weapons... And the repaints mission was left for army of repainters (btw, I'm a member of it, follow the text :)) So for them we publish all-gray psd files with uv map layer, and example of repaint.

http://sibwings.com/birddog/paintkit.zip - all-gray psd files
http://sibwings.com/birddog/paintkit_example.zip - ZK-NAM livery psd files

Remember that uv map is a bit different from model to model, so feel free to ask about any part location in textures.

As to repaints we are interested to collect them on our site, or at least links to them, so that people know they exist. So if you create anything that can be interesting to Bird Dog pilots please let us know.
Let's start
ZK-NAM

Should I explain how to install repaints ?
Have fun flying Bird Dog!

Hi Andrey, of course you can. :wink:

Important:
There is a little bug in the aircraft.cfg of the float version.
