    If anyone is interested...and would like to collaborate with someone who
    wants to create a nice config file and appropriate instruments ... just

    Thanks for the encouragement! You are very kind... Just completed another one...
    All of my panel bmp files are available upon request... I just don't have the time
    to do a decent config with so many of them... I am basically an artist not a tekkie...
    I think with a little patient anyone can do it justice on his own...

    Here is a panel for a rare bird... Kazunori Ito did a pretty fair model of it...

    Excellent panels, Gaucho, and yes - I am definitely interested. The Helldiver panel in particular is very well-done!:salute:

    Are you going to make them available to the community, they would be a great addition.

    Yes... However, as I stated before... I am not a config file wizz... I can make the bmp available anytime... but
    it wil be a while for me to do the config... This is why I was looking for some more technically oriented person to
    collaborate with me and produce some really nifty 2D panels... you know... like pop ups... different views, etc.
    I thought that folks who are gurus in that respect would jump at the chance to produce some seriously valid
    panels... There is an awful lot of great panels that, however, leave much to be desired in the bmp background... like some
    of the Masters (Ito, etc.) So called "photorealistic" but actually lacking cohesion... like a collage of bits and piece that don't
    always hang together right... if you know what I mean...
    Apparently not everyone is concerned with panels... just the outside aircraft...
    For me.. the panel "makes or breaks" the illusion of feeling like you are piloting the "real" thing...
    One cannot be flying and admiring the outside at the same time... but in the cockpit... you can do both...
    I wish VCs were also realized seriously... the masters do it... the "run of the mill VC" just look weird... exagerated perpective... etc.

    I wish I had the talent or I would definitely help. Iis there anyone out there that would be interested in collaborating with gaucho_59? It would be a shame to let these panels go by the waste side.

    The "photorealistic" one is for some marks (there are so many versions) of the North American T6 trainer
    and the last one is a very accurate P-38 J (Pacific Theater).

    Pardon me... the Stuka jpg is only what I used for reference... need to

    Those are beautiful.

    Have you done any WWI aircraft?

    Could you give us a list of what you have available. Maybe that will help spark some intrest. You never know what project someone might be working on. I wish I had the software to do them justice. Otherwise I offer to help.

    Superb artwork. Absolutely Superb.


    Till later,

    Hard to give you a list right now... it is forever changing because I keep churning them about one a day...
    At any rate... I will try to compile a list this weekend... and... all you have to do is give me the name of the
    aircraft you want it for... or also [even faster turn-around time) send me the existing (maybe poorly executed
    a la Kazunori Ito... great master modeller but kind of poor in textures) and I can re-do it in a jiffy...
    (so long as it is fairly faithful to the actual aircraft... I like to do accurate representations whenever possible...
    like the ones I have shown here... some are from line drawings or fuzzy pictures which I "doctor"...

    Another of my pet peeves about 2D panels... There abound far too many cut-and-paste jobs that put present day instruments in the
    panels of yesteryear's venerable Zero-sen and other Japanese pre- and WW2 aircraft... as well as other nations... So I am conjunctly embarking on
    a project to create true-to era instrument bezels... Here are a few I've started...
    By the time someone feels like collaborating, I will have built a considerable archive of useful textures...
    btw... the one solitary request to collaborate DID reassert himself and said that the offer to use my work still stands... only
    his work-group needs to finish an extant project...

    Here are a couple more... the first one I did for Francesco Giuli for his excellent modelling of the
    Vizzola... and the second was for his S81 - which he didn't know I was doing and never got used
    'cause he had already released it in SOH... I also did textures for it... so if I get his permission I
    could release as a complete aircraft repaint...

    Here is "another before and after" rescue of what I call...mmm mediocre 2D panels...
    I think that the "rescued" panel makes the flying experience a little more like "you
    are flying" so to speak:
