    I apologize to the OP for this OT-ness, but he inspired these new models. :-) I have just uploaded the "No Guns" new wheels versions to include the original uploaded models so it is a full package of 4 models updates for the wheels/tires. These are new model folders for your existing A-26-SOH aircraft folder. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?88767-A26-SOH-More-New-Models-Updated

    I have the original artist's blessing, and will be putting a download of this paint together this week. Might even be tomorrow, my schedule permitting! It will be a full new texture set... exterior in OD / NG camouflage, and the interior and wheel wells / doors in zinc chromate yellow and 'cockpit' green. My new glass texture will be in there too...obviously... LOL Two versions will be included, both the A-26B. and the A-26C. With the framing around the nose plexiglass on the C, and the gun bay doors on the B model, two different fuselage texture files are needed. Cheers Dave

    Well, I also had a request to do the "No Guns" versions so I am uploading a "version 2" that includes the B and C without guns. These look great with the diamond shaped treads. The shiny birds look okay as well with the diamond shaped treads as they are less dirty and darker.

    Milton sent me a new set of tires last night and I just finished mounting them on my B and C USAAF Camo birds. Just the ++ tread so far, but wow... do they look nice!!! Of course, I had to give them a wash to clean them up, so they would look good on my shiny A-26... and I ended up painting the center hubs red on a second set of wheels for the C model... just because! LOL Once I get my hands on a "non-specular" model file.. (that is , almost a flat finish), and can do a weathered texture set, I'll dirty up the tires again. But for now.....

    Thanks MR; I have had all these pics for quite a while now used as reference. The Vega exterior model is now completed and the interior model is almost completed. I also have pdf manuals for reference. Just trying to get the internal details done before shipping her off to the paint shop. :-)

    Yes, I will; I must to add the nav/radio/radar stations. The USA used the them but that's all as far as I know.

    Glad the glass texture works for you! As for my 'repaint'. I did this one before I found the paint kit, so it's basically an extensive rework of Bomber_12's 3rd bomb group texture in the original download pack. I did quite a bit of work on it to get the desired effect, including redoing the interior surfaces in zinc chromate yellow and ANA interior green. (there were more permutations to these interior colours and the debate could go on for days... so don't get me started!! LOL) Anyway, I have the paint kit now, but will try and contact the original artist and get permission to upload his 'altered' textures before I resort to a full on repaint using the paint kit. I will probably end up doing just that, but don't have the time to invest right now. I'll keep you...

    THAT is one seriously huge cannon!!!! I think I would be clenching my teeth, bracing every muscle....and pull the trigger! I wonder what they did to absorb any damaging recoil? Not a 'pretty' installation, but I would suspect, rather effective! And as for the plexi on the nose, my Discus canopy had an outline on my desktop's motherboard video card, but virtually disappeared on this laptop. Might be a result of the 'anti-aliasing' settings or something.. heck.. I have no idea!! LOL This airplane has had SO many downloads!!!!!! Maybe this new discussion reminds people that haven't flown it in a while how nice it is, and gets a few that have languished in the back of the hangar back in the air! :applause: cheers Dave

    Happy to add the knobbies and diamond shaped tire tread. Also have the fold-a-way seat covered for the Vega. ;-) Well, yes, an updated PV-2 with lots of interior accommodations for radar, nav, and radio positions, plus the Vega, plus the Lodestar civvies, plus the C-57/C-60 military transports.

    That does look good to me on the plexi-nose. I should have designated that area differently from the canopy for a better effect overall. Attaching two pics: 1) to show a cannon test I do not recall seeing before (how big is that bad boy?), and 2) an early A-26 with the gun pods on the wings and the early canopy arrangement.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FS 2004 Skins Description: This is a rework of the original glass texture for the SOH A-26 Invader for FS9. This texture is NOT for the FSX version of the aircraft!!! A VERY popular aircraft download! If you don't have it, go give her a look in the 'What's hot' section. A-26 Invader for FS2004/FS9 - Auto Installer Vers. A-26 Invader for FS2004/FS9 - Manual Installation I found on my laptop screen, with my settings, the nose glass was all but invisible and therefore not very attractive. So, I reworked the texture file to make the glass more visible, while still remaining transparent, both when viewed from the outside, or inside the aircraft. The difference I experienced is quite apparent when the two...

    Got this PV-1 off the shelf and invested this past week in mapping for textures inside/out (about 900 parts excluding munitions and pilots). Got just a few more things to map and she will be ready for the paint shop. Trying to decide if I should drop the co-pilot completely (like all Vegas were delivered) so I can make poly room for the Radio, Navigator, and Radar operators' stations. Is that even a hard decision to make? :-) EDIT: I forgot to mention that I have also begun the mapping prep work for the Lockheed Lodestar L-18.

    LOL... no worries on the pilot change. I just had an idea rattling around about doing some "Stateside" Generals personal transport. A khaki baseball cap will work too. Thanks for the info on the specular lighting utility. I have never installed FSX on my laptop. Worried about performance issues. The cooling fan runs quite enough with FS9... even with my double fan cooling tray, so I'll stick with it for now. Oh, one other thing. to get my Olive Drab over Neutral grey repaint, I used John's 3rd bomb group textures and modified them in photoshop. That included repainting the interior in zinc chromate and cockpit green to match my old plastic kit. I couldn't find the paint kit and was unable to send a PM to John (Bomber_12). Still, it worked out okay! I'm quite pleased...

    The model "sheen", also known as specular lighting (sun glare), can be modified by a utility available. Many here have it and someone will likely step up to do that for you or at least tell you the name of it. (Model Shine? or "MDLC" may do it) As for the pilot change, I have so many model variations that doing that would be cumbersome and would only be available for the FS9 native versions. The FSX native gmax source belongs to Bomber_12th and I do not have it.
