    As I prefer to fly with the classic cockpit I have both versions installed. The texture layout is slightly different and some small part ore in a different position. But the V2 textures fit on the V1 version without any real problems. The textures for the V1 version might not fit as there is a small change in the nose of the model. The main reason I have the V2 version installed is to simply to test textures. Cheers, Huub

    That is sad news Jan. It is one of the not so nice things of internet. Years ago I lost contact with Michel Migaud in a similar way, so I think I understand how you must feel. When I decided to help Dutchcheeseblend with his Fokker D-XXI project, one of the first things we did was exchange phone numbers and addresses. I really hope Hansi will surface in the near future. Cheers, Huub

    Hey Paul, I'm not at my PC, but Google "Dave Nunez gimp bump map" and you should get the link. Be warned that the links for plugins and other stuff are dead (it's an old post), so you'll need to get whatever plugins you may not have from the Gimp site. Let me know if I can answer any questions after you take a look at the tutorial. Good luck, Steve

    Hey, Matt, I think I'm on to something! Found a good (old, but good) Gimp tutorial re FSX bump maps and it worked! I was able to create new bump maps for the model in question by using Gimp's bump map plugins and the tutorial. It is fairly straight forward, just have to make certain to follow the directions exactly the same way every time. Now just have to fine tune the maps to get the outcome looking the way I want. Thanks very much, Amigo, for your offer of assistance and your willingness to help a painter(s) in distress! Cheers, Steve

    mmm, the airports are now all the way at the top, with just the FTX library above (yes, it was orbx I showed), but I checked and the problem is worldwide. Any ideas?

  1. Hello Maarten :-)

    Wow! That would be great. I'll send you the address in a PM.

    Thank you very much! :-)


    Hi Milton,

    Hope you're well.

    I realized to day that I have a very interesting e-book on my hard disk entitled "Stoof Driver - Flying the Grumman S-2 Tracker" by Mike Ray (private publication, 2003). It is about 300 pages "thick" and contains a treasure of photos, colour and b/w, many of great quality. Not only of the "Stoof" (S-2) but also the FUDD (E-1 Tracer). if you are interested I will be more than happy copying it for you and the project.

    Just let me know and send me your address so I can send it really quickly to you if you want it.

    Best regards,
    Maarten Brouwer
