    Hi Dave, I don't have a problem with the Hampden any more, as you can see in my shot of the aircraft in post #10. The shots in post #2 are very old screenies from when I first tried it out in FSX, and the transparent prop discs were the result of a flawed download ( the flaw was in the files, not in the download process itself ). Mal998 at first provided me with the three prop textures as above, but that didn't resolve the issue. Eventually he provided a correct version of the download and everything was fine. So now I have two Hampden downloads - the faulty one and the corrected one. Out of curiosity I deliberately installed the faulty one this afternoon into P3Dv2.4, and strangely enough it was all okay. So it seems the transparent prop discs as shown in post #2, and which...

    But that isn't the problem here, Mike. This isn't the usual problem with FS9 models in FSX where clouds behind the aircraft obscure the prop disc, although your fix does alleviate that particular glitch to some degree. The prop-disc issue that Simon has is different, and is the same one I had, as shown in post #2. Simon...have you tried the textures Mal998 sent you ?

    That is my feeling too. This isn't a texture issue - its something more. Mal998, you may not remember, but you and I spoke on Skype a long time ago about this problem, and in the end you provided me with a lot more than simply replacement prop textures. I still have the file you sent me - do I have your permission to send it to Simon if necessary ? PM me if you wish.

    This should be typical of the end result - the Hampden in winter, P3DV2:

    Okay, good. Mal998 should be able to sort you out. You might need to send him a PM and link him to this thread. Let me know how you get on.

    The problem that Simon refers to in the opening post is not the well known problem with FS9 port-overs, where cloud textures seen behind the aircraft obscure the prop disc when viewed from the front . Is that what you have a problem with ? Simon's problem is something else altogether.

    You mean this sort of thing ? In my case, it was down to a flaw in the files originally downloaded from Alphasim. A few years ago, Mal998, who is connected to Alphasim/Virtavia, provided me with the correct files. Hopefully he will see this thread and respond.
