    Such a great plane/release deserved some attention...so my old paint from 2012 was redrawn for this. It's the youngest C47 airframe still flying. I'll upload it presently. Now, if only the seats were the right way round...and I didn't have to fake the window in the cargo doors....and all those whiskers weren't there....;) VH-OVM was built as a C47B at Douglas Aircraft, Santa Monica California in 1945 and was delivered to the RAAF as A65-98. After service throughout Australia and Asia including 2 theatres of War she was converted to Civil Standards by Schutt Aviation of Moorabbin in 1990 and named after Mr. Arthur Schutt MBE. She is owned by Shortstop Jet Charter out of Essendon Airport and operated for the people of Melbourne as "Melbourne's Gooney Bird".

    It's not the original air file as the original was continually going nose-up....trim was definitely iffy. Best I can suggest is finding an air file that may suit better...perhaps swap in the default FA-18...;)

    From what you say... it seems you want to take a rectangular image and turn it into two SQUARE images???? Maybe something is being lost in the translation.... lol... Can you explain with pictures... sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words... either that or I am too dumb to understand what you mean... G.

    :wavey: Large and hi-def enough to be cropped as wished... as is... or without gunsight and the same in separate bmp to be "popped out" when engaging targets... same for control column... Changed the size of the gun sight... probably more in tune with the size of the rest of instruments... Under the gunsight there is an aiming point in the main panel... :ernaehrung004:

    As far as the relative measurements... the bmp is large enough and sufficiently hi-def that it can be cropped to suit anyone's preferences... Notwithstanding... if one lowers the gunsight... (which is in the right position now) then the flying instruments are obscured...not visible at all... My solution to this dilemma would be to just set a point (dot... faint circle... whatever) in the proper place to use as an aiming point... basically... the aiming point in the sim is just that... a center for the fire cone... circles, etc. really are only eye candy... probably 4 points outlaying the area to center the enemy would be useful (in terms of judging proper distance to initiate firing... (or do away with the gunsight bmp altogether)... just having a bull's-eye circle on in the...

    I'm willing to bet it's a 'false positive'....probably a compression algorithm in the making of the dll.
