Some work thus far...
You keep tempting me! ATM I'm flying the Orbx World Aleutians in Sibwings' An-2, but soon, very soon I shall be driving London Control batty with Kestrel & Kittyhawk flights in and out of the Royal Suite. It's grand fun fitting in between the 777s on short final .
KN628 is just the ticket- Ta!
PS- I started the repaint thread asking someone to paint the RAE Dak... So if you are ever inclined... That would be splendid as well!
Looking great Ted

Thanks guys! Few pics with alpha added. Spending most of my time cross-referencing many pics of C-47's. Exploring the possibilities!
Need to move the outer reinforced wing panel a few inches out than it shows here.
Here's one of Monty's C-47 used by the Queen. (1961) Notice the special door added to the rear cargo door. Hmm... adding another door... my next project maybe! Yep, I think so!!!
I tried PM'ing him... will try email...ta!
PS- love the shot of HM onboard!!
That's payware quality, but what else can we expect when Tufun is involved.
One day without laughter, is one day without living.
One day without Flight Simming, is one day lost living.
Looking Great , one thing when close up to a DC-3 .. all those little lumpy bits they call rivets
The average size used in the manufacture was approximately 3-8 inches long, and if laid end-to-end, the rivets would cover a distance of 15,625 feet or more than three miles.
I have a feeling your labor of love will be my favorite girl at the ball. Just the ticket for driving London Control quite mad by slowing to 90kts on a long final with a half-dozen heavies behind me. Then gently slowing to make the turn-off for the Royal Suite to pick up HM.... the radio chatter should be brilliant.
Seriously lovely stuff mate!
Very Nice! I've held off on the C-47. That might have to change.
I'm working on a makeover for the Cal Classic C-46 (and JBK B307) and the rivets can be quite maddening. Good close up pics are hard to find and not many references show the rivets.

Scaling is a problem due the mapping of the model, so are limited to how the rivets look.
I find it fun to see if one can replicate an aircraft in the virtual world! Plus this as inspiration... http://www.manuelflemming.de/douglas-c-47/
That is some fine panel and rivet work there TuFun. I assume you are redoing the bump maps too.
Will you be releasing those layers for the PK by chance when you are done? I sure would like to update
my released paints with those.
