Hi Werner British Airways Landor is still my favourite BA scheme You might want to have a look at the font you are using , check out a few Landor photosLooking at your picture it would seem that the red lines could do with being a little bit darker , BUT it is only one picture , so it is hard to say without seeing some more shots (could just be the lighting for the time of day in the sim)I have to say it is looking good !!, Id like to see some more Mark

Good!The red stroke downwards from the cheatline should start right under cabinwindow L1.I agree the color red is a bit to light.Leenlook at this picture British-Airways-Express/Short-360-100/1045937/M/ on airliners net

Hi Mark and Leen,I removed the BA fonts and used a scan of their title instead. Also stayed with G-BMAR , moving the arrow back to the first cabin window and darkened the red.Hope this is better now.Werner

Looking good !! it would seem you have the bug for painting Regarding the BAW repaint , you really have to decide what you want to achieve , as in exactly how accurate you want to be with it You will always be limited by some degree by the model and the alterations you are able to make to it If you look at the photos Leen suggested (i did) then perhaps the blue of your BAW could do with being a little darker The blue you have used seems more in keeping with the union tail colour scheme Again I must say that I am only looking at a jpeg , not your repaint in the sim , and Im viewing on an 18 month old very over used lappy :( So really that is for you to decide as to whether It is right or not Bottom line I suppose is Once you are happy with it , it is finished The last two screenshots look good to me ,and Im sure there would be plenty of people willing to download them should you decide to put them in the library :( Well done :( Mark

Good mornimg Werner.You`re doing a fine job again.I think it`s time to go a bit more into detail now.You have the basic skills to make a paint and the best way to improve the results is as I just said "going into detail".Some minor remarks.1The big door at the left side has grey accent-lines , it should not have them ( only a very thin line ), just the emergency-hatch in it is accentuated.And reposition the emergency hatch in it.2The small grey rectangle on the nose (left) must be the same white as the fuselage.3The font you used for the registration on the fuse is incorrect.4You might try to create the two small windows in the top of the fuse at the right side.( you cannot acually make the, just paint them )5The nose wheel must be totally black ( wheel-hub and rim included )6You might try to give the windows grey edges (Falzen)Adding all these minor details makes this repaint more authentic.GrussLeen de JagerpsMany painters crank-out several repaints a week using the paintkit provided by the author of the plane, resulting in many paints on wich only the colors are different and all details are the same.A really genuine repaint not only asks for a correct colosceme , it really has to look the same as the original.I might look like this then.

Hi Leen,I downloaded the FSRepaint demo and startet outlining the windows. It sure is amazing to see the effects of the changes in realtime on the 3d model. what makes the big difference is to know where I

Hi Leen,yeah, I received your mail and as you said found the built in editor of FSRepaint to be - hmm - below average. So I stick with my free paint.net, while having FSRepaint open. After saving the changes in my layer files into the FS2004/aircraft/... as a bmp I reload the aircraft in FSRepaint to see the changes. Or - as you pointed out -I make simple outlines in FSRepaint and save them as a bmp to use them as a guideline layer in paint.net.I

Infact I get very excessive using layers, sometimes having up to 20 or more (with all my socalled helplevels included.. I Werner
20 Layers isn`t eccesive , at McPhatstudios we sometimes handle paints with over 250 layers.What do you do handling the alpha layers?Leen

Hi Leen, I usually only use 1 alpha layer. After I have finished a paint, I load it into dtxpmp and either add a new alpha, using an inverted greyscale image of the texture which I adjust in brightness and saturation. I then add the alpha to the texture and that
