Please explain your problem.The pictures are not clear enough to show the problem.Please do not upload the dds files to mega-upload.Save the dds files as jpg ( high compression) and send them as an attachment to your post.Downloading from megaupload is timeconsuming and limited.regardsleen de jager

Your problem is due to glitches in the model.The bird on the tail can be corrected simply, by changing the texture on the tail (see example)The bird on the fuselage is most likely only correctable by sliding the bird a bit towards the nose of the airplane.RegardsLeen de Jager

Quote removed.There is no need to use a quote when answereing directly to the post above.thanks I did that and it worked, what kind of error is this, carenado's error ? Are they going to launch some sort of patch to correct it ?

Yes its really a glitch in their model.I think its not likely for them to make a correction.Doing such thing would implicate many repaints already made and published will be "invalid".The best way for developers to avoid this kind of misery would be consulting some wel known painters to test the "paintability" of their products BEFORE publishing.The reality is they publish their planes as soon as the are flyable.They seem not to be interested in repaints in a acceptable quality.This is not an exclusive MSFS-models phenomena ,for many X-Plane models goes the same.I am a very experienced X-Plane painter myself and I can tell you for sure.Leen de Jager

Another fine example of Carenado's mapping...However, go to their site and check the downloads page. Carenado have fixed a few of their models with corrected maps. Another way is if you know how to create your own wireframes from the Carenado model. Or paint a grid/net pattern on the plain white model and create a new version of the white paintkit model with only the grid.
