    I've done all the bits re the ladder/steps and rescue levers ...but ultimately there are so many versions...depending on nationality, etc for the notes in general...;)

    Perhaps extracts of War and Peace would do as 'notes'....haven't done anything about those ... But here's a 'real' ver of the TBirds paint ... though as always you discover more than one variation...ie. the one with the blue spine and leader's star circle on the tail....maybe another ver to do...;)

    Since at 4096 you can read the 'notes' I'll put one on the top somewhere that reads 'this way up' ...;) Still trying to align the TBird 'bird' graphic on the U/S a little better...and the notes and ladder markings are still original low res. Matt's lines/rivets are more accurately placed than the original paintkit which had somewhat dodgy centerlines.... so the bird needs more tweaking...;) Edit... TBird painting is done ... and got the spec to look better. Just little details left....

    Almost 'done' with the 4096 conversion for this paint...... chasing up actual text info is a pain...unless you have an L39 hiding in your backyard...;)

    Still 'just' on the TBird Fuse...but here it is in 4096...using Matt's lines and rivets to align things . Wing paint hasn't changed yet. Takes time when you 'scratch-build' intake warnings, etc...;)

    Bjoern.... I'll ultimately be adapting the default ones...just as soon as I've converted what I've been doing so far to 4096. It's a slow road, though. Currently I'm converting my TBird paint as that can be used for 2 vers ...and by which time the alphas and other details will be in place. Biggest challenge is to maintain the standard set by Matt's work...;)

    A very early update to 'full' 4096 resolution details... porting across from 2048 means 'fuzzy' so there will be a lot of reworking to do....;) Note....wings are still 1024.

    Wow!!!!! Brilliant. Now I need to convert everything in my 'kit' to 4096 to suit. This'll take a while...;)

    Jafo replied to a thread Saitek X52 Pro in FSX General Discussion
    Have a look at the X65F.... no moving parts to wear out/wobble. Takes a bit to get used to....but once you do it ends up superior for just that reason...;)

    What's the bet it'll be a 'modern' PSD that I can't convert. I use PSP as I've used Paintshop Pro since way back around version 3...more than 20 years ago. The original released paintkit was a pain to convert hence my preoccupation with repaints....;)

    OK...I may yet get a handle on this one....juggling everything to reproduce the metal is 'entertaining'. Am yet to detail the specs to suit painted vs metalics.... Edit.... Looking better....

    Bump 'shouldn't' affect it ....tried a plain mid grey spec...both norm and trans...and get the same thing... the underside of the air intake sidepods is lighter than the topside where the sun is...;) My guess is the spec is inverted in the experimental model ...;)

    Here's the 'same' paint...on the original non-spec model at the same spot and same 'time'...behaving under-the-sun...;)

    I'm 'playing' with the spec experimental model.... Strangely the U/S doesn't look too bad....but the sunny side is dark. I know I'm 'Downunder' but the sun 'should' work the same way here as on the top of the planet...;) The panel cowl looks like it's facing the sun ok...hence it's bright. That's the ground below me...near YMML ...and the sun is up on top somewhere....the shadowing is inverted, it seems - though the fuse casts onto the wings ok...;)
