Hi Jim,Sorry I've not been in touch sooner - family proplems (aarrrggghhh!).A million thanks for the FS9 repaints. You are a star!.:( For some reason not all the links are connecting, ie: emirates, V Australia... any chance you coud look at checking if I'm doing something silly.:( Anyway, I've just got home after a VERY, VERY long flight from Vancouver...2 changes enroute... I feel as if I've been around the world!!.B) Still I'm going to have to have a play before I crash out!!!. (physically not aviation wise that is!):( Just going on a short hop from EGKK - EHAM with one of your birds...... reports back soon...Adrian

Hi AdrianYou are correct, it seems that the files for the Emirates and V Australia have gone astray from the server, and it is also not the first today as I have had a couple of Flight1 Islander repaints dissappear, but fortunatly as I don’t throw anything away I have the originals, so I have uploaded them again for you and here are the download links for the files..For the Emirates MD-11 FS9 versionhttp://www.filefront.com/17491582/MD_11_EMIRATES_FS9_01.zipAnd for the V Australia MD-11 FS9 versionhttp://www.filefront.com/17491590/MD_11_V_AUSTRALIA_FS9_01.zipI think that after these files going astray I probably will take up Dan’s (Turbine777) offer of him hosting the files on his website, that is as soon as I can get them organised, with me that’s not an easy task.My apologies again for the file download problem, and I hope that the above links remain active a little bit longer than the originals did, but if you have any further issues with any of the files, then just let me know and I will try my best ot sort them out.Take care, and have fun on the EGKK-EHAM run.Jim Hodkinson

Hi,Well I only got as far as the channel before I started to fall asleep so just taken the TC big bird out this morning. Using real world weathr (VERY strong winds!!):( Its a beauiful work of art... and a joy to fly, hit the ground in AMS quite hard though... I'm putting that one down to winds Just%20Kidding.gif Guess it was a 'controlled crash':( That said I have flown with a few capatins who like to make sure every body on board knows we have landed.... one of the joys of being a FA I guess... 'gird your loins and gab the seat we coming in!!'.Keep up the amazing work!!Adrian

Hi Dylan I am pretty certain that something can be put together, just a couple of questions though, did you want the overall blue version or the overall white with the blue tail colour scheme, and do you have any preference for the registration and engine type.Just let me know, and I will get something put together for you as soon as I can.Take care, and have fun.Jim Hodkinson

I managed to get some more free repainting time to myself (I will certainly have to pay for this at sometime), so I had another chance to have a go at Anders original list of requests, now I am doing these totally at random so the next one of the board is the fictional Vietnam Airlines repaint of the MD-11, so if anybody wants to take her for a spin, then here is the download link for the files..http://www.filefront.com/17254371/MD_11_Vietnam_01.zipas always, any problems or changes you may need, then just let me know and I will try my best to assist.Take care, and have fun.Jim Hodkinson
Hello JimI like the font of this airplane, can you tell me what is the name of the font.Thanks a lotJohnliem

Hi DylanI managed to get some time to have a go at the ArkeFly colour scheme, so if you want to take her for a spin to see if she is what you expected, then here is the download link for the files,,http://www.filefront.com/17529074/MD_11_ArkeFly_01.zipAs always, any updates or changes that you may need doing, then don’t hesitate to let me know and I will try my best to assist.Take care, and have fun.Jim Hodkinson@ Johnliem I am sorry but I can not be of much help on this one, as I have no idea what the font for the Vietnam colour scheme is, as it is actually a graphic rather than a text block, sorry about that.I will have a look around to see if I can come up with anything, and if I do I will let you know, but sometimes you can get a font that is nearly correct, but it will have say the letter “a” in a slightly different design, which if it happens to be (as it usually is) a letter that you need then it’s of on another search, or hand draw it.Jim Hodkinson

HiI recently did a Avianca FSX repaint for a forum members PM request, but I thought that I may as well post a link for the colour scheme here as well, just in case anyone else would like a copy of it, so if anyone does want to take her for a spin then here is the download link for the files…http://www.filefront.com/17502428/MD_11_Avianca_01.zipAs usual, any problems or updates you may want doing, then just let me know and I will try my best to assist.Anyway that’s about it really, so take care, and have fun.Jim Hodkinson

I think airliners.net should provide good photo's on these Airlines and how the paints looked a like on their DC-10s. I think, ONA had -30CF's while the other two had the -10/-30s pax only.Thank you so much! I have been waiting eagerly to finally fly em on FSX. :)Kind regards.-STEFAN-FISCHER-

Hi StefanI have had a very quick look around, and have found that the three airlines in question had various versions of the company colour scheme, for instance the first request the ONA colour scheme I did find at least four variations on the DC-8’s that they had, and I had similar results for the remaing two requests, so if possible could you either post one shot of each airline, or provide me with a link to a shot, as it would ensure that we are both on the same page about which variants you wanted. Take care, and thanks for any assistance.Jim Hodkinson

Hi StefanApologies for the delay, I don’t get as much PC time in as I would like to at present.As for the colour schemes, we are getting there, the ONA scheme should not be a problem as photographs have been found for it, as for the National colour scheme, did you mean white upper and bare metal lower fuselage, as I can not fin any shots of one with the lower fuselage in white, but it could be that I did not look hard enough.Now for the fun bit, the Western colour scheme, now I have found two colour schemes that seem to fit the bill, but as you will kow more about the airline than I do you can tell me if I am correct *which will be a first), the two colour schemes are an early version which is all bare metal with the text Western along the fine and the red and black Western logo along the fuselage side, and for the later version which is a mainly white fuselage with the lower section bare metal, and again the Western logo alonge the fuselage side in red and the text Western on the fin, am I correct or a mile out on this, just let me know.As for my E-Mail address, it should be in my profile I think, not sure as I hardly ever E-Mail myself..Unitl then, take care and back as soon as I can.Jim HodkinsonJust while I am here, I have found that the Avianca repaint has somehow disappeared from the server, so for those that may want a copy, here is a new download link for the files..http://www.filefront.com/17549985/MD_11_Avianca_01.zipI have no idea why it disappeared, but that’s technology for you.

Hi Jim,I just happened to stumble onto this forum. I have downloaded several of your repaints. They are very nice indeed. I only fly the PMDG md11. [most of the time] on Livewire VA.I know PanAm never flew the MD11, but it is my all time favorite airline. [Clipper, as they were called on the radio] [i am retired from the airlines] Would you be able to do a paint putting the PanAm colors on?Again thanks for the good work,Jerrell Friz

Hi JerrellI was actually going to be doing a PanAm repaint of a certain 707 for myself, so you have got me at least motivated enough to have a look around at some photographs, now you did not really say which version of the PanAm scheme you were after, if indeed you have any preferences as to which one, so I went for the first run through with the overall white fuselage, with the large PANAM fuselage logo, so if you want to take this version for a spin, then here is the download link for the files..http://www.filefront.com/17613743/MD_11_PANAM_01.zipThe one thing that I think could do with changing is the tail, as I think a better layout would be to move the registration to the fuselage, and increasing the size of the PANAM globe logo to cover more of the fin area, but it is your aircraft and so your decision, just let me know, also let me know if you have any preference for the actual registration number for her.Take care, and looking forward to your reply.Jim Hodkinson

Hi Jim,I was wondering if you could do a repaint in PanAm colors on the 747, either the 400, or the 8i, I have both ? I am flying your MD11 right now on the Livewire VA server. Anchorage to Atlanta.. I'll try to post a shot. I have never posted a screenshot on here.Jerrell Friz
