    Willy, yes these are the base texture set you sent me with some modification on my end to create a color set that would best use the alpha channel to.convey the look and feel of aluminum. The bumps were created directly from your panel lines and rivets with an additional layer added by me which gives the skin some metal grain within the bump. The diffuse texture alpha was createdoing by modifying your base textures ans creating the alpha channel. I've also added a fresnel overall which will allow a more realistic reflection on all painted aircraft where you can see the reflection only on very off angles close to 90 degrees. I'm dialing in the wings specuar now so it shouldn't be too much longer!

    Going to make the demarcation curve more of a symmetrical curve and then it will be complete. Won't be able to get to it though for a few days....on vaca.

    Thanks Willy! This was a quick test with the Tanks 1 model and your master panel lines set with some additional skin bumps. The spec is not pulling enough light and I realized I need to layer mask some panel lines in the diffuse that I don't actually want to see other than the bump. This was perfext. Exactly what I was hoping you'd send . Thanks!

    I've contacted Willy and he was gracious enough to provide me with his masters for the new textures he's doing. Just the panel lines and rivets etc. I've gone ahead and added bump maps and specular and fresnel. The bumps need to be lessened a bit but my recipe is good. First pass with Willy's handy work and my bumps with Alphas made from the bump masters. Once the bump height is refined this will be awesome....makes this old model look almost new! I made the bare aluminum textures based off of the masters Willy sent also. Just a few additions and subtraction and a few layers. WIP.

    Is anyone familiar with the RL version of this aircraft? Am I missing any markings other than safety markings that differ by aircraft location. Thanks.

    Willy, I spent a half hour converting the "native" P-80 found here in the SOH library to incorporate Alpha channel, specular, bump and fresnel. This is the first archaic attempt and results. I'd very much like to marry up this model with your texture work. If you've got the panel lines and rivets saved as a layer in each PSD (or whatever texture editoe you use) we can create the bumps pretty easily. Higher resolution textures will yield a fantastic result and your textures are looking superb! I've converted the model to use .dds format. You can see only the tip tanks and fuselage have the bumps applied...thats why the wings and hstab are darker. Even at this meager resolution and super sloppy and quick attempt the outcome is looking good. What do you say?

    Yes, I'm endorsing the f100 as a tester. Having flown everything, and they're allooking good, the F100D is so satisfying to fly.

    F-100D is prob my favorite addon jet aircraft. It's enormously rewarding and fun to fly.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - Post Cold War Description: THIS REPAINT IS FOR THE PAYWARE Metal2Mesh M2KC. This represents a fictional Air Canada Mirage 2000C scheme. While only costing ~$25,000.00/hr to operate, it's a steal for those typerated to scoot across Canada with. The Main external tanks are converted for 2 of your closest friends or family to join you, with 3" head room, they can ride in style, and in the dark. The center pylon is converted to baggage carrying for you convenience. If your passengers become a little too unruly, simply jettison them, and the included pyrotechnics will safely land them in a patch of the Great Canadian wilderness where you are likely overflying! Should the jet prove too much for your skills...
