    I don't do painting, but I might say the mapping looks as sweet as it comes and should give the painters an easy ride.

    Thanks Butch. Will take a look at your stuff.

    Jankees--I agree with you on your photo example and that's probably the way I'll go barring any evidence to the contrary.

    Ted--those rudder pics are perfect examples of what I'm up against. And I found "S987's" work early on. Amazing work.

    Thanks again, ALL.
    You may want to contact Pat Rogers since he's rebuilding a B-26 to flying status.

    Wow, Ted! Thanks for the links to Robert's other sites, and the LEG WORK. Very much appreciated. Man, I could look at stuff like that for days.

    About the only thing to do is talked to guys that actually have a B-26 or have contacts at a museum that has one. For Monty's bird I contacted RAF museum and the curator sent pics and articles about his C-47. Very help chaps!

    I've the read a few article on several sites stating the same thing... only the rudder is fabric. GE mentioned Bomber_12th, probably would know with his contacts.

    I did message Pat at facebook for answers. Cross-fingers he answers back.

    Steve, this is my best reference to your fabric question.

    Keep in mind that some of the early or later versions may have been different but the B/C models are represented here. This may have also varied based on intended destination or leasee.

    EDIT: Added aileron pic

    I would go with Milton and Robert on this one. Also in this cutaway all control surfaces are fabric.

    Man! You guys rock! Thank you, Milton and Ted, so much for your help. The key, I think, will be to make the effect very subtle to the point of almost undetectable.

    BTW, panel lines are done and will have a couple days for rivets before heading out for a long weekend with friends.

    Thanks again,

    Steve

    Checkout John Terrell's paints on his mustangs for difference between a fabric covered surface and metal surface. He did a great job. You could do it by having no bumps other than corrugated part and adjust the specular for subtlety. You're a great repainter, you'll nail it Duckie!

    Hey Rick, thanks. I keep a couple of JT's textures handy for reference, as all as a few others, including some who have posted in this thread! The talent, generosity, knowledge, and attitudes on this forum are second to none!

    Great resource indeed. Thanks for the reminder Ted. I believe I have that very issue of Air Power. Now, to find the right box its stored in.

    The parts manual or an erection and maintenance manual. What treats they would be.

    Unfortunately (and unusual), I have neither for this aircraft. I do have two other excellent pilot manuals but neither discusses the surface characteristics.

    Original 1942 B-26 mechanics training manual. I guess something that would be used in tech school.

    Hello everyone,
    I show you what I started for the effects of depth and vertical empennage.
    Tell me if this is correct

    beautiful indeed!
    Regarding the fabric vs metal discussion, this comes from the pilot training manual:

    Wow! I am Gobsmacked! Awesome work there Sir

    All the interior templates were in the original FSX release, fsxb26native.zip in the "2048 templates for interior" folder.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    B26

    Rather than starting a new topic related to Installing the B26 FSX Native Marauder base model and Version 1.1 and Version 1.2. I thought I'd ask my questions here about the install.

    I do now have the required base model version 1.0 installed. I did notice in this download. There are two other folders 2048 templates for exterior, and 2048 templates for interior. I'm assuming these folders are for airplane painters use?. I'm not an airplane painter Therefore I didn't do anything with them. All I installed was the required base model V1.0.


    I'm now currently looking at the download files of the required version 1.1 of the B26. I'm currently looking at the FSX installation procedure doc. of version 1.1 of this model. I'm scratching my head on this one. I'm not sure how to do the step 2 and step 3 and 4 properly reading the readme instructions, so I don't mess it up?. I'd like to get some assistance on this. it's kind of over my head being savvy, at what I'm reading and doing so to speak. I'll probably need a lot of help with this version, no dought etc.


    I did also download the required the Native b26 required version 1.2 to be installed. I'm pretty sure I can handle this version, once I get version 1.1 figured out and under my belt.



    George
