  1. As both a real world premiere lot and software engineer I think the simple answer is the fact that a plane like the DC-6 is sophisticated and nuanced. Both of those things require expertise and attention to detail. While a jetliner has a sophisticated FMS a DC-6 pushes the limits of propellers, oil, imperfections, all of the things that are much harder to do than drawing a Nav screen which they have before. I fly an older model C-130 and replicate it for fun in my free time and the challenge of replicating an antiquated system often seems to be harder then replicating a computer driven one.
  2. I do quite a bit of flying in this region as a Coast Guard C-130 Pilot stationed out of Hawaii, as other people have mentioned there is not much out there, we can often get away with filing Lat Lons direct if we don't take one of the airways, other than that you spend most of your time talking on HF and doing position reports. Definitely unique flying, and airports! Explore some of the islands in Kiribati where 737s operate, it will definitely be a change of pace! -Matt
  3. I gave Maryland one a go but I don't have enough experience with the Alpha layers and what not, and I go back to ground school for 6 weeks starting Thursday so I'm not going to have any time, its so impressive what these guys can do.-Matt Chase
  4. Is Maryland One on any of the repainters radar? Thanks again for all the impressive work you do!-Matt Chase
  5. Being a born and raised and proud Maryland boy (More stuff in my house with the Maryland flag on it than is probably culturally acceptable haha) I have also been waiting for the Maryland One. I had a weather cancellation for my flight today so I couldn't do my checkride so I figured I'd try my hand at repainting. This is my first real repaint so I'm sure there is leaps and bounds to be made but I wanted to share for those also interested. Sorry the screenshot quality isn't great.

  7. Evening everyone, I am currently working on my first ever repaint and I have had a lot of success but when I install the livery I am getting windows (openings not textures) on the bottom of the aircraft and the windows are shifted incorrectly on the right side. The actual fuselage psd and dds seem to line up fine though. Thanks for your help! Matthew Chase
