Whenever a text appears to be visualised backwards, just mirror the text on the texture.I may look stupid on the texture, do not mind that.Leen

One point however..It depends on the aircraft you're painting.Some aircraft (the default planes tend to suffer more with this) share sections of the bmp for both sides, ie sections of the fuselage. If this is the case for the aircraft you're painting then unfortunately theres not much that can be done!
