That's beautiful, Richard. Clean lines. Very classy!

Yes, looks great. Did you try to put an N number on it? Ha.

Thanks Ray i could just didnt bother - what you do is you take the other part of the tail and copy it over to the other parts as reference then lay out the letters and make them at that crazy angle

Hey Richard, is OY-CTN available anywhere? :)

If not, I have the same paint scheme in Red, White and Black with no registration number assigned. Just waiting for a new owner to show up.

Hi Folks,

 

Paints look great - superb job folks - with the shaders I use - paints look better with a white belly...

 

I'll take it with an N number...

:wink:

 

The sad thing about this plane - now I want a REAL one - anyone have 5 million I can borrow ?

:Tounge:

 

I looked at the paint kit - and of course - the most logical place for a reg number - is split across two different textures at a weird angle... What a PITA for the painter... 

 

I like this paint as well - I'm planning a simple tag job to some N number reg this week - unless someone has it already ??? PIX is a bit dark but it was a heavy IMC day with ASN/REX in the northeast USA yesterday... Bangor ME (KBGR) to New Haven CT (KHVN) - cloud deck down to 500 feet on landing... Pretty challenging...

Scott,

 

Oops, when I loaded up the Red, White and Black one with the white belly, I remembered that I had already assigned N158M to it. Here is what it looks like.

 

I have that one also, but as N153Y with some extra work on the tail. I like the crimson color paint also.

 

Regards,

 

Ray

Looks very nice, I know you already said you have little time for painting at the moment but do you think you'd be able to add a german registration to it? :smile:

Jan,

 

I only added an original German model yesterday. So far I painted U.K., German, Brazil, and American models. I think a Canadian and Aussie model should next.

Much more than you know, Jan. But, because I was doing these difficult repaints only because no one else would even attempt them and it is certainly not enjoyable work, you have convinced me there is no positive payback for my feeble efforts.

 

Thanks to you I am officially retiring from contributing any more free repaints to the community. I will stick with writing reviews, which is more rewarding to me.

 

Best Regards,

Ray its thankless job sometimes that I can attest to thats for sure - you have done great work - I will take care of this asap and pass the files to you if you wish - fighting a wisdom tooth issue and cant get it out until next Friday as you have to bee on anti-biotics for 10 days - again thank you for your efforts many have no idea what it takes to do these - the Carando painter must be a rocket scientist  :wink:

Even though I added a little wink there, I was acutally being serious :smile: I wanted to add a flag to a livery of the Citation and was very confused when I opened one of the texture files. I've often heard about the difficulties of painting Carenados planes but I didn't expect to find something this muddled (do they use a different method of texturing these?). Anyways, I absolutely agree with you. If a comment like this by a single person makes you want to stop creating/publishing repaints to the public you should definitely stop doing it. Life is way too short and the community way too small to spend so much time on stuff like this if you feel that you don't get out of it what you deserve. Maybe donationware would be a way to go.

Thanks Jan,

 

Yes, you did hit a raw nerve and the wink didn't help very much. I also added a wink to my reply.

But, then I decided I would show you what was actually involved in preparing just this one D-IRMA repaint. Sure, the real repainters know how to create their own paint kit when the developer does not provide one, as in the Carenado and Alabeo models. To date not one has stepped up with a workable paint kit so it is up to us amateurs to stumble through the flipping, twisting, turning, mirroring and then the alpha sheets and bump maps and spec sheets, and on and on.

 

It is one thing to delete the color from the bottom of a Carenado model or to copy the tail of one to the tail of another, but it is totally a different ball game to create a repaint from scratch, especially with straight lines or stripes along the fuselage. There are four or five individual pieces that have to match perfectly and they are not adjacent to each other and the door is flipped and mirrored with a slight twist and all the noses have some distortion in the models. The vertical tail alone has three non-matching pieces for each side, left and right, and you can't just flip one over to the other side. The rudder and the rudder trim do not align with each other and they are in separate files from the vertical stabilizer.

 

I took a look at my effort for the D-IRMA repaint and I have two major folders for my working documents. Most are very large files but a majority of the jpegs and incremental work files total 200 flles and use 1.40 GB of data. The actual texture files used to test the flight models is another 174 files and an additional 1.28 GB of data. This repaint took me about 6 weeks of fairly steady work, some days up to 8 hours a day, when I was on a roll.

 

So you may have a better feel for why your little gig pushed me over the edge. Who knows, maybe it was a good thing.

 

Some time in the future, I might make some custom repaints for special requests - for those that truly appreciate the time and effort required for some of these simple looking paint schemes, but you can bet your last German Mark or Euro that I will not be putting them up for free downloads.

 

Best Regards,

 

Ray
