Hi all!

Just a wee teaser - not quite ready for uploading *just* yet, but hopefully enough to whet the collective appetite.



And no, this isn't all I've been working on. I have many more aces up my sleeve for Robin's gorgeous Omaka.... cool.gif

Cheers!

Cheers guys! Very encouraging responses - I can't wait to see what you say once I upload screenies of this and other aircraft I've been working on.

VAC, I downloaded a programme called DXTBMP, which allows you to modify the .bmp files that make up the textures.....I'm basically self-taught, I never even knew about the tutorial pages!

Paul - sure is! And I can tell you, it's the most accurate and totally true-to-life FS aircraft I've ever used!

As I'll no doubt reiterate when she's uploaded, many thanks to Graham Orphan for allowing me to crawl all over poor ol' KCO in my attempt to get this paint accurate.

Watch this space! Upload hopefully by Monday.

Took a bit longer than expected, but I'm uploading to FlightSim as I type this. Looking forward to your feedback!

EDIT - Uploaded! Woo, how exciting! Look out for her over the next week.

ZK-KCO is now online at FlightSim.com. Search for ZK-KCO, or Omaka, and you should find her. As with the TB863 paint, any criticism, comments and screenies are greatly appreciated.

Woo, post #200!

PS - The next repaints I'll upload will be some distinctive aircraft owned by The Vintage Aviator. Stay tuned.....details ONLY at NZFF.

Hello, first post here, and I love the Champ paint. I learned to fly in a 7AC Champ in the late 70's.
