    Thanks very much Tom, and wellis for your kind remarks. They are much appreciated.

    Duckie! Holy cow! That is fantastic! I can't wait until I have some days off to get in that bird! Can't thank you enough. Here is a pic of my grandfather, Cliff Bailey. There weren't as many mission markings as in the profile. You can see it's not as weathered when it didn't have 50+ missions on her. I wish it was a better pic, and I will get one asap. But, my mother was emailing this from her iphone camera I think. Not the best. MAN that looks sweet!(the repaint)
    I wish our current Air Force uniforms were so rakish.

    Magnificent! Haven`t had nearly enough time to really explore this one. Been something of an embarrassment of riches lately, and my harddrive is in danger of imploding.
    Guess I`m going to need a TB or 2 soon.

    Freaking awesome. Not much else I can say about the repaint then that. I sent a screencap to my mother and she was astounded. She really seemed to appreciate the B-26 coming to life again. When I think about it, it was something she never saw in person, much like me, but it was something she was close to as well. I'll be sure to take some screenshots to send to her asap.

    Steve, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    BrittMac, I'm truly humbled and gratified that something I do for fun and relaxation could possibly bring the slightest bit of joy to you and your mom in such a personal way, and not just me but all the talented folks on the Milton Shupe team who played a roll in bringing this wonderful model to life as you've said. Thank you for sharing this bit of your grandfather with us.

    Not sure if jankees has done it, I have it on a list of contenders but your welcome to do it. I am working on
    Big Hairy Bird right now in between trying to finish up my revamp of the 391st AI birds.

    Thanks Joe. It's hard to keep up anymore specially with folks who don't upload here, and I mean no disrespect. I'll have another look on Oz.

    Been working on this one for awhile when somehow I lost (all layers were flattened into one) for the front fuselage. So I lost all my
    previous nose art for the released paints I've done and for a few that were just about done. I also did not have a backup which I
    usually have for all my paintkits. But as they say "Life goes on" so I started over with which was the lucky part of this whole mess.
    The file was saved with this nose art and no weathering layers activated. This is where it stands now, still have weathering to do and
    I'm not sure if the extra stripe on the wings and fuselage was done in OD or black. My research is inconclusive as some modelers show
    it both ways and any wartime photos are in black/white so it is hard to tell. I might release with both options and let the end user have
    the choice. What do you guys think?

    Man, Joe, it must be in the water! In another post I mention I blew away one of the wings I was working on for Ole Smokey! Not near as much work lost as what was in your fuselage textures, plus I still had the left wing, identical except for the star and bar placement!

    Nice work on the BHB. If yoy include both Black and O.D, I would use the OD.

    Thanks Milton And Steve. I still can't figure out how I saved the file not only flattened but as a PSD file.
    I always save the file first (which is as a psd file) then to flatten it, then to "Save As" a 32 bit bmp file.
    It was a lot of work gone (file was just over 200 mb in size) but it could have been my work on the AI
    B-26 which is everything on one texture sheet when flattened. That would have stung really hard as I
    have 4 squadrons from one group (391st) and all the stock paints redone from the original d/l. I will be
    releasing those paints as soon as I find the time to do a new traffic file.

    I know exactly how it happens to me and I still let it happen!

    I go thru the same process you described. After a long session of save/merge all (flatten)/save as, I'll get distracted by thinking ahead about what the next item to paint/correct/tweak is, then on the SAVE AS step, instead of SAVE AS, I do a SAVE! Now, at that point I'm still OK if I catch it before I close it because I can UNDO to get the layers back. If I don't catch it then it becomes a merged and flattened PSP! Goodbye hours upon hours of work! What a sinking feeling. If I were a drinking man I'd have become an alcoholic by now!

    Oh I've done that, but I always catch it before I close it out. But the sad part is I know I didn't do that this time but I guess I did.
    The part that hurt was when I went back in after dinner and cleaning that I realized that I had done that. (this was last Friday)
    I didn't touch PS until yesterday when I decided that I would start over. The good thing is the file had the the last step I had done
    so it was just taking it from there to get it to where (the pics) it is now. I did have to setup the layers in groups as that makes it
    easier for me to turn off stuff while I paint.

    Those recent paints look fantastic. I'm in the middle of a move from one house to another, so, I will be around very sporadically. But, I try my to check in and see the progress on you superhero's painting the Marauder. I'm taking a break from packing up stuff and watching Dark Matter on Netflix. The runabout/shuttle in the show is called the Marauder, so, I had to check in on the thread.
    Thanks again for making so many great repaints!

    To all of the repainters/texture artists here, you know who you are, thanks for all of your work. I can't believe how many great B-26 paint schemes I can fly now.

    Multiplayer issue

    Hey, I love these models but my friends and I have issues with these (a-20 also) where the airplane textures will constantly reload and refresh while flying and it cause our session to freeze for a second causing us to fall back and lose position. Any idea why this occurs? This happens when one or more of us fly these aircraft in an online session.
