Did an Alpine Edition lookalike - now available in the Avsim Library

Recommended Posts

It is a good thing the CJ2 came with some tail numbers. Nearly impossible to make new numbers, even using the defaults as a guide.  I have never seen so many twists, turns, mirrors, etc in the paint templates.  The end result is OK though.

Ray

Simply beautiful!

Can I pay you for a version of that with a custom N number?

Sure. How about minimum wage? It takes about 4 - 6 hours to add a number using the Carenado paint kit (sic).

PM me with your custom N number for a quote. :P

I haven't had any time to look it over very close. In a few days I will check it out and upload it to the Avsim library. I flying the CJ2 and I can't do both at the same time.

 

Send me a PM and I will send you a link for a beta copy.

 

Regards.

Yeah, I was going to say that was a very quick repaint. It takes me 10+ hours to do a Carenado repaint. I have to spread it out over a few days or I am driven mad!

Hi Ken,

 

Check out the post on the FMS and the Direct to function that I posted.  It may have some improvements but it doesn't work like we think it should. 

It took 90% of the time to get the tail number correct across the rudder gap and 10% of the time to make the custom graphics and get them flipped and turned and mirrored.  And that was with a repaint for a roadmap.  Without a go-by I would still be scratching my head.  Crazy. Crazy, but I like the end result.

 

Regards,

 

Ray

Thanks, I missed it.

 

 Yeah, I don't even attempt across the rudder anymore. I try to put my N numbers on either the engines or lower aft fuselage.

Glad you are enjoying it, my favorite also.

I uploaded the Alpine Edition to the Avsim Library this morning. Thursday, March 24, 2016.  Look for Cessna Citation CJ2.

Thanks. I'm having the most fun of all. Just wait 'til Ramon and Janek get cranked up with their mods. We will have the best CJ2 in the land. Anyone heard any rumors from the Carenado shop about the next biz jet?

I haven't heard any rumors, but I'd pay double for a well-done Citation X. There's been a couple of them done, but both have their own issues. They look like cartoons inside and out.

The ESDG XLS+ might be the first one to the gate - Proline21. Milviz has a Lear 60XR with a full-blown Proline 21 (the full integrated type) in the mill, but it is just getting started. I really don't expect Carenado to ever have anything like these two, but heck I never thought they would even attempt a Hawker or Citation, so what do I know.
