  1. Yep, picked it up after I posted that. 🙂 Now all I need is for their website to let me in so I can download liveries... 😣 In the meantime, I'm going to go fly its big sister to St Maartin.
  2. Coolsky DC-9 - ~US$55 (you get some MD-80s thrown in as well, but they're dated, so I don't use them). No magenta line in sight. Quality Wings Avro RJ/BAE146 - ~US$20. Couple of quirks you need to manage, but for $20... Yep, Q400 is a great plane. I don't have the 787, but can imagine it takes a lot less 'flying' than the Q400. Where's the fun in that? All have Australian liveries. 🙂 Sadly, the J41 hasn't made it to the top of the pile yet, otherwise that would be on here too. Post script... I don't have it, only for the sake of plenty to fly already... TFDi B717?
  3. So close, but... going around in circles on this one... The MS on the nose has to go... too much stretching. The smeared line on the M is only one pixel wide.
  4. Closer... Almost down to pixel chasing now... Needs some more work on the nose and tail. I feel like the end is in sight. Not sure if the Alitalia on the fuselage should be the light blue, rather than the dark. I think the dark was later. But I do prefer it over the light! I'll take any advice on the matter. :-) Mike
  5. Nose, well, yep. Work to do. Tail stripes are getting close. Decided reg is too big, so will have to shrink. Alitalia is too small on the wing...
  6. Yeah, the three light blue stripes. Then mirror them for the other side, obviously.
  7. little apparent progress, but got some housekeeping done (involved a fair bit of reworking - rookie errors) which will make the rest easier. Temporarily killed off the gloss to make checking easier. Blue stripe to the tail section almost works. Need to repeat it three more times though...
  8. hehe... he already knows he's going to have to suffer my dumb questions when I get stuck... He partly brought it upon himself. 😉
  9. More WIP. Titles sorted. Getting a feel for the curves. Need to lose the shine next. Then fix the front and back. Left the fuselage grid on to see how it all fits. I appreciate the encouragement. I'm going to need more when I feel like throwing the mouse through the wall trying to get the nose right...
  10. Folks WIP of an Alitalia livery. 80% done, which means I have 80% of the time to go... Learning a new paint kit and PS at the same time, plus only my second livery, first with bare metal to contend with... A lot still to do and a lot to learn. Hopefully done by Xmas... The variation on this one won't take too long. Mike
  11. Tasman Empire. aka TEAL :-)
  12. Enji, what did you play around with? I'm battling a similar problem. Mike
  13. The 'it was shot down by the RAAF' theory might be vaguely plausible if the wreckage was 20 miles from Perth. ~1,500 miles SW? How does an itty bitty F-18 get out that far and back, when the 'liner is by that point moving away at a high subsonic speed? No one would even know it was there.
  14. In my experience you only need to disable icing effects from the cockpit view. I had the flashing, and turned the cockpit view icing off, but left the external icing view on and the flashing stopped. YMMV Mike
