    I first did my "Melbourne's Gooney Bird" paint for the MAAMsim plane and since the release of the V3 have done the same paint for it too....so can switch between the same aircraft in both models....and the determination as to which is better is a 'no-brainer'. Admittedly the first paint was done in 2012...and the V3 one is current so the quality of paint/accuracy is better...;)

    To belabour the point...yes, the right side....starboard side...co-pilot's side can have a flag in either direction...depending on the 'preference' of depicting a trailing flag...or an emblem...but on the port side....left side...pilot's side...there will be NO TIME when a flag other than one with the 'pole end' facing to the front of the plane....the pointy end....where the pilot sits.... is ever acceptable. Either the flag will be depicted trailing the plane....pole-first...both sides....or depicted as stars on the left hand and stripes on the right...both sides. A simple Google of the US flag....the AUS flag...or any other asymetrical flag will show flags always depicted with the pole end to the left....even when no pole is shown. That is how an official emblem is depicted. On...

    Yes, again, that's THE one of 2 options. You will never see a flag with the flapping/loose end opposite from the pole pointing forwards on the LEFT side of a plane. It DOES however happen on the right side, as flags are traditionally drawn as viewed with the pole on the left and loose end on the right. Simplest way to put it....on the left side of the plane the USA and/or AUS flag should always have the stars/Union Jack on the left. On the right side of the plane they can be either way, depending whether it is treated/interpreted as a 'logo' or a 'flag'...;)

    Yes...that's option 2 as I mentioned.....as was the case with the TAA paint....pole to the front both sides. Tradition requires the flag to either be as if it is real....stars closest to pole both sides...so pole is at front....or less commonly...flag as a single-sided entity ...and the US flag is always depicted from the left side....stars on the left. Simple reality is that a flag "should" never be shown tail-forwards with the pole at the rear viewed from the traditional side. The screen cap above is therefore almost guaranteed to be wrong way round.... The only way it could end up like that is if some ground crew/painter was about to be sacked....;) Duckie....yes...as above...it's correct....;)

    You can't rely on what is on the left side vs what is on the right. Most National Flags are on planes in one of two ways....either read as 'traditional'...left to right.... or directional...flagpole to front. What that means is for the US flag it's either stars on rear - right side...and stars on front...left side.... ...or stars on front...both sides...;) In the TAA above the flags are the second way....Union Jack to front on both sides...;)

    Once I have one TAA 'mostly right' it's easy enough to do others..... this one is on the way...;) Specs and alphas are still from the other one at this stage.
