    I've worked on the 'theory' that the reason ZU-RUN is only snapped from the right is to show the tail cos it's only painted on the right....sounds almost reasonable...so the left would be camo and red star . Meanwhile...some sleuthing and I worked out what the 'Matrix' graphic is.... ...so this one's probably about as right as I can get it....and yes, the camo pattern is different to its sister...ZU-HIT....;p

    Anyone know if this critter has the same graphic on the other side? Edit... Dave....that's not ZU-RUN ....it didn't have that scheme....it was released as 207 Soviet...and became 207 Ukraine before private as ZU-RUN...and that has at least 2 vers... with/without graphic....otherwise with Red star. CN was 232207. N8124N in your pic was CN 330211

    Bjoern's current release version download link.... Link, as usual: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6K...ew?usp=sharing ZU-HIT....now with revised Sky Raiders logo ....seems to have been 2 vers. Next is ZU-RUN.... but annoyingly I can't determine whether the tail graphic on the right side is actually also on the left....

    ZU-TEE was looking a little 'bland'...so while looking for more pics I found it has had about 4 incarnations....and the first one I'd done was about the second 'blandest'. This ver has a bit more interest... took a while to find all the graphics...and as always one's still NQR ...;)

    I've been sidetracked from panels for ages lately thanks to Bjoern's great FSX rework of the Doughbree L39C Albatros. There's about 2600 different paints/aircraft..... ...I'll try not to do all of them.... Once I've uploaded them I'll get back into some panels .... not even sure where I was at with the C46....seems like months ago...;)

    But I'm having fun with the spam ...;) ZU-HIT is coming along, but I need to find more details for the graphics. The bear's not a problem...just had to clean up the shading/rudder from the photo...but I'm a bit iffy with the red text...and there's a graphic on the air intakes....

    I've been tidying up a lot of my earlier paints...adding details and 'bits'. There's altogether about 35 paints...so it takes a while...;) Here's one of 'em...;)

    I think a button that says 'Remove wings' could be problematic....particularly for a plane....even more so whilst in flight...;)

    This one's finished...and suitably 'complete'. The detail notes are a bit above and beyond as it's actually a simpler paint... but details are always better with than without...;) Tweaked a bit of the shatter and revised the 'Albatros' text on the intakes. The camo was transferred direct from some side elev photos so it follows pretty closely to the real animal ...and the colours were picked from the photo so won't be too far off, give or take...;) BTW...it's 'clean' as in no dirt layer...as the real animal looks pretty clean too

    The specs I use are a 70 point left-shift of both brightness and contrast from the 't' image....with the 'chrome' bits picked out in white ....except for the metal-painted TBird.... that's better right-shifted again for the chrome/metal effect....and alphas set to dull some sections down to avoid a total-chrome mirror look. If you get 'anal' and set alphas individually for each bit of detail/signage....something 'needed' for metal skins vs painted signs it gets fiddly but can look quite cool. Of course it all goes a bit more to poo when the scale/detail is reduced. Your model 'finishes' respond quite well to lighting/shine variations... though there's no real 100% 'matt' even with a 255 alpha...but in reality no aircraft paint is going to stay genuinely 'matt' for long anyway...;)...
