Most likely you are using DDS files.

 

During the process they might have been vertically flipped.

 

When you open a DDS file in your paintingprogram it should show up upside down.

 

I am confident a vertical flip will do the trick.

When a paint looks good on the texturesheet and does not show up properly on the aircraft, it might be due to mipmapping.

Try saving the file again without mipmapping.
