PMDG have hit it out of the park, again.  I'm just concerned about one thing..

D-ABYA has the wrong name.  😞  (Steve D. - hint, hint..)

LOL Scott...I knew you'd somehow object to LH changing the name of YOUR plane when they went to new livery!

When I move my original LH 400 textures over, I'll make this livery D-ABYA with its proper name on the original paint of LH's -8.😀

I don't know what everyone is having about. He's using a sub-par painting program.  Most people haven't heard of it cause its that bad. Think it's called Paint shop.  Names totally meant to rip off the only true painting program Photoshop. @Steve Dra

Btw Steve.  The wife says hi Stevey-poo. 🙂

Her surgery is mid next month.  Fingers crossed.  I'll tell her you said hello.  Although if I do that, she'll say we chat more than some high school girls.

I fly N454PA CVG-NRT at 0915z on the 25th. So I have some down time to mock and ridicule you still.  Saw these two on my way to the plane this morning though.

Hope the surgery goes well...Tell her we'll be praying for her.

Have fun on your flight to Japan!

Remember, those who mock only do so out of extreme jealously for what the mockee has that they don't (which in this case is a far superior paint program!) 🤣

Gents,

(And you too, Tavendale.  😋)

Jason will have the paintkits up officially in a short bit.

Sorry for the delay... 

 

No need to apologise, I'm sure you've all been very busy helping out customers. It's here now and I've made a start on some stuff 🙂

Yes LH, no not sharing profile. It's easy to make your own with a little trial and error.

Yeah, but even if we don't get the paintkit soon and you wanted to paint an -8 from scratch... and had some skill and forethought to look at the -400 texture maps, you'd realize the -8 maps are almost identical, just stretched as you'd imagine.  The tail texture is identical.  So you can actually paint an -8 with the 400 paintkit and make a few adjustments when you move the textures to the maps.

But I'm sure you already knew that. :wink:

Now that I've finished my two paints....it actually took me less than an hour to do the passenger variant. Only thing is the rear of the fuselage didn't line up with the tail the same way it did on the -400, so that took a few minutes to adjust....and also the fact that this laptop is apparently really slow now, so that doesn't help. I think I was done with the freighter in just under 10 minutes, but then again, all I had to do was transfer the paint layer from the passenger variant to the freighter, add Cargo, change registration, and that was it.

Hey John,

Are Cargolux or AirBridgeCargo planned?

 

Thanks
