    Thanks Jen! A little history to go along with this aircraft. It was later redesignated G-221. Amazing to read about it's demise. Had no idea when I was painting it. 09-03-1961 During formation flight with two aircraft crashed G - 221st The pilot heard a rumble and the plane lost speed. Master Caution and Over Heat Engine Burn began bright and hydraulic system pressure had dropped to zero. The pilot ejectede after he had discovered that the steering was locked . G -221 hit the ground southwest of the Netherlands Simmelkær .

    I do not experience this when using P3Dv3.2 (or any version). I get something similar with my TacPack AI menu...it gets blown out to full screen (the popup selection box). But nothing like this for text.

    You need to purchase VRS "TacPack" in order for the stores load to work with this version. It's listed in the requirements on the PC aviator page. Honestly...it's well worth the investment. It will open the door to all kinds of new features and aircraft for you.

    Glad you like it! Yes, this was my pain when trying to decide where to place things and what look to use. In photos, unless specified, there's no way to kow what year you are looking at...at least not from a casual observers standpoint. For a time I was going to make the lettering Red. But discovered that was about the least realistic...not sure how long or if ever it was used. I doubt very long if at all...

    Thanks TuFun! That's definitely something I can and am willing to fix. Don't look too closely or youll spot all my mistakes and inconsistencies!! ;) this was one of the most inconsistent paints I've ever looked at from a photographic perspective. At leadt from the photos I saw. As you said, they changed many times the paints and seems like there was never a standard paint other than the location of the nose stripes in relation to the wing. Other than that, I've seen red lettering, lettering size variations, location and size of patches, star pattern variations. Hopefully I didnt botch it up too badly! LOL. Great screens! Thanks DaveQ! I will defintiely release a v3 of this paint when I have more time and will eliminate as many errors as possible. Right now I'm too busy in...

    I think you're right! The shape of the visible numbers makes sense. Great find!

    You guys never cease to amaze me....I had done so many searches with different parameters to try and find a good photo. That's the best period photo I've seen. Thanks for sharing! So I've placed the flag in the correct place. However, I've still yet to come across the leader jet 42009 with it. However, I've been assured it is correct, so we'll go with that!

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FSX Military skins - Post Cold War Description: THIS REPAINT IS FOR THE PAYWARE MILVIZ F-100D. This paint represents the lead ship of the 1961 USAFE Skyblazers Demonstration Team. Piloted by Capt. Pat Kramer. There are extremely limited photographs available of this aircraft or any Skyblazer aircraft for that matter, especially in any detail. Every effort on my part was made to render the aircraft as closely as possible. The real aircraft was of course an F-100C model, and therefore the dimensions are not exactly perfect. Some decisions were made regarding the flag placement, whether it was there or not. It was definitely there at some point, and seem appropriate to include. A big thanks to Chris P. from Milviz who sent...

    Enjoy! There are a few small errors but I've run out of time ATM to fix them...and I wanted you to enjoy it for now....I'm sure you'll overlook them and not freak out! hahaha This will be my last one for the HUN for some.time as I'm engaged in some other projects that will be taking my already limited FS repainting time. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?action=jump&catid=186&id=21328

    The Lighting engine in P3Dv2+ is far superior to FSX. So naturally these aircraft will only continue to look better as P3D matures.

    You need FSX:Acceleration. The code from FSXA is required. Each aircraft on their product pages describes precisely what version of the sim is required as a prerequisite.

    Are all the variants like this? Or just this particular one? If it's just this one, see if there's a shared texture folder and either point the specific texture.cfg fallback to that folder, or copy the contents of it directly to the affected texture(s). If that doesn't solve it....you'll have to open the textures of the parts that look like they work correctly and compare them to the ones that don't looking for anomalies between them and fixing what's missing. Kind of a trial and error process without knowing exactly. I don't have this one. So I'm not sure.
