    wellis, love this new scheme; well done Sir :jump: Regarding the alpha enhancements, agree with Nigel's comments. Leave fabric covered areas white (near 255) to negate reflectivity. Lower areas (and areas facing more downward like under wings/fuse) take to reflectivity easier so usually 230,230,230 to 235's range works well but upper areas (and surfaces facing up), if light colors, may require 220's. Dark primary channel colors usually require less alpha channel as they take to reflectivity easier. Thanks for this one; great stuff. :applause:

    Andy, I found the movie but I cannot get it to play past the opening credits. When the actual show should start, all I get is a black screen as the timeline bar progresses. Will try on another computer. Strange.

    Spectacular work, Willy! :jump: You may wish to try selecting some of those panel areas in Alpha mode, Go to Brightness/Contrast dialogue BOX, then play around with both contrast and brightness values. Some darker, some lighter - great fun to do. :encouragement:

    Looking beautiful there, Wellis - I love these low-key, subtle paint schemes. :encouragement: Did you try adding a faint alpha channel? - If you're in the mood, start with pure white, then go to brightness/contrast settings, darken by about 10% and then do some minor adjusting according to your taste in sweetness. You'll be amazed at the depth, vibrancy and classy finish.

    As much as I appreciate all that you are doing for this forum I'm restricting early access to those who submit contributions (data not money) to the development of this aircraft. Not to worry as it will be as all my models are free to all. Thanks to Clive aka Pat Pattle who sent me some documentation on the CFS3 version I have a lot more information on the aircraft. Yes Clive is on my list. Thanks Dave, I am appreciative of your support, Anything you can dig up, please. I have the feeling that there must be some people on this forum that may have access to information that would be of great help in the production of this model. As most of you know I build models as a hobbyist with a passion for aircraft of the era and that the end results will be freeware with the caveat that it...

    Hello all, I'm posting a few screen shots of my current project. I'malmost done with the exterior model construction. I'm currently mapping andtexturing as I go as you can see by the incomplete textures. I have a millionmore rivets to draw (heavy sigh). Testing is being done in FSX and P3D 2.x andsoon P3D 3.x. I have been searching and purchasing data for the aircraftbut it is scarce. If anyone has information and is willing to share it with meI would very much appreciate it by adding you to my small list of beta testers when the time comes. I'mprimarily looking for cockpit detail and flight characteristic data. I hope you like it. Paul

    I thought swingman's duck was FSX native? Mine did have the DX10 problem because of an incorrect setting in the Max material settings for FSX. The DX10 fixer solved the problem for those who encountered it. It never did show up on my system that's why I didn't catch it.

    Huub, Shessi, I appreciate your efforts. You can appreciate how tough the task of getting the nose interior build correct when reference material is scarce. I know you experience the same with your projects. Gotta keep looking; maybe someone will uncover a treasure trove. :-) Thank you :applause:

    I can't speak of the X56 but I've had a X55 for a few months now and like it. Be aware though that I had some major issues when trying to get the Saitek drivers and programming software to install in Win 7/64 Pro. The driver installer never completed (it hung on the final stage and never closed automatically) although the drivers did go in and were recognized. The programming software installed but after spending a long time setting up the axes and buttons I discovered the button to apply the profile to the HOTAS remained 'greyed out' and I could not apply the profile at all! In the end I bought the full version of FSUIPC and used that to assign the axes and buttons and I have been very happy with the set up so far.

    Currently working on the A-20A/B/C variants adding a glass nose and upper tail gunner canopy. I have lots of reference for the gunner's area but none for the nose interior except the left side. Does anyone have better reference for the bombardier's area needed to help flesh out the VC interior and exterior appearance of inside nose items. Any help greatly appreciated.
