Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

Thanks for that info John, I will make a note of it. Here's a little trick I discovered re. FSRepaint, you don't have to point it at your FSX/FS9 folder in order for it to work! :o I like to keep one partition on my HD just for games and I use a different partition (on a different drive as it happen...

Thanks Ben, I may add to it as I discover more little gems on my trip along the repainter's learning curve! :)

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

I just put up a webpage covering what I discovered with this 'paint pulling' problem on the PC-7. It took me longer than expected as I was working on it yesterday when my debilitating illness decided to flare up :@ . Once my body decided to calm back down (I have no control of it when it decides to ...

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

You could perhaps just put a ruler on the paint at that point and then read off the scale exactly what happen and where. Any calibrated scale will do I got it figured out using the gradient bands but it's a bit complicated. I am going to throw together a quick and dirty webpage with pictures and de...

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

Thanks for the reply Garry, it looks like that is indeed what is happening. Oh well, time for some more experiments I guess. If I make a gradient 'rainbow' pattern across that area I might be able to find just where it pulls by the colour and then I will know just how for I can bring the design down...

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

I see you got around the problem by using only a single colour on the belly. ;-) Try an experiment by painting two colours in the areas between the wing LE and the gear doors and the wing TE and the radar dome (at least I think that white bulge is the radar dome ;-) ). Even a simple one pixel wide s...

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

Hmmm....I would love to see some shots of the belly on those planes as I am having some major problems trying the get more than one colour to play nicely together on the flat underside area just fore and aft of the wings. It seems like there is a UV map problem in there and things get 'stretched' an...

Re: Oy, mind the merchandise Rodney!

He he, I downloaded that last week! I linked it to my F.3 Tornado sounds instead of the puny Lear and it sounds much better now! :lol:

I just wish I could add 'dancing diamonds' to the back. :dance:

Re: For the mods: Is the Pilatus PC-7 considered a "classic"?

I have it too and it inspired me to attempt my first ever repaint :o . I spent 12 hours on it yesterday and I have most of it done, just the little bits and bobs and text to do now. :welldone: It's looking pretty slick and I very pleased with my first attempt at repainting. I will post a pic or two ...
