All I need to do is find my v3 (v2) masters and work out what font I used then.. remake the 20-odd I did for the old model :wall:

I obviously got clever when doing these. Looks like I kept PSD's with all the major changes. However.. all in the garden is not rosey. The fuse is quite an easy conversion.. 1024 to 2048 but the wings are an odd size in the FS9 maps and making them 2048 makes everything oversize on the FSX maps. Nice one Dave :lol:

:lol: :lol:

The fuse is ok and slots right in. The rest is a pain in the arse :lol: The wings are wild. Still can't quite get my head around what's going on. After I've done another dozen or so.. it'll get easier :lol: The two paints I've chosen thus far have detail on the nacelles (what'a mistake'a to make'a) and they're up the swannie too. Looking at AEML.. I need to see where the exhausts are too. The nose lines were reworked on ML. They were iffy on the V2 model but doubling the size of the map made a poor job worse. The lines on the engines could do with a rework but it's easier not to get too close :lol:

It's a nice little diversion if nothing else :lol:
