    If you make the ship a single BGL file, like Paul Clawson's battlewagons and carriers, the user could easily move it to wherever in the FS world they want it with just a few minutes of work. Check out Paul's USS Idaho or one of his flattops to see how it's done. To relocate those ships you just open the BGL in BGLxml, change the location coordinates to wherever you want, and recompile with BGLcomp. He even includes the required software with the ship in the download, along with instructions on how to relocate the ship. With his earlier ships the wake was a separate file that had to be relocated separately, but in his later versions the wake was incorporated with the model into a single BGL file and only one file had to be edited.

    Yep, all is exactly as it should be. The new pictures and the new files are all there. I clicked each download link to make sure that the zip file name was correct and they all are. Once again, thank you for your trouble.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category FS 2004 Skins Description: Skins for the Alpha Simulations B-57B Canberra. Texture enhancements for two of the stick paints. The B-57C of the Vermont ANG has its serial number replaced in the proper style of numerals and the missing walkways added to the tops of the wings. The EB-57B of the 4677th DSES has its incorrect Aircraft Gray finish replaced with natural metal. Both paints have the national insignia and USAF titles on the bottoms of the wings switched to the correct wings. This version corrects an error in the original upload.

    Oh, I'm glad you did post that message! I never would've caught the error unless someone pointed it out. Or maybe some day I'd spot it when I was flying one of the planes, and wasn't in the mood to make the correction but would've felt compelled to end the flight and fix the textures. I'm glad it's done! I didn't have to modify every single paint job. Just the ones that have the "ADC Gray" scheme and the silver ones based on Henry's natural metal finish. The black ones weren't affected, nor the white one, and none of the B-57A paints. The corrected files just went up the pipe and should appear on the download list presently. The pictures are the same, but they all have "CORRECTED" on them in big white letters to make them easy to spot. My little helper does more than...

    AUUGGGHHHH !!! You're right, and I should've spotted it! The error originated in one of the Alpha Sims paints and was propagated twice, once by me directly and once by Henry William and then further by me. Most of the AlphaSims paints had the insignia on the correct wings, top and bottom, but just one had it on the wrong side on the bottom. That was their Aircraft Gray paint of the EB-57E, which I worked on without ever spotting the mistake. I took those markings and put them onto a natural metal finish without noticing the error. Then, making use of those original textures, I turned them into the Kansas and Vermont ANG paints I made, carrying the error through. Some time ago, way back when, Henry William apparently did the same thing I did - he took the markings from that...
