You can have a Piper in any colors you want, as long as they are yellow and black. That should be the motto for Piper aircraft. For some reason, Pipers look best in Yellow and Black. From the J-3 Cub to the P-11 Cub Special, from the P-18 Super Cub to the P-22 Tri-Pacer....Pipers just look good in Yellow and Black.
And to bring another Piper into harmony with the Yellow and Black universe, I have done a repaint of Brian Gladden's P-20 Pacer in a nice Yellow and Black scheme. This is an entire inside and outside restoration...lots of added details to the outside, enhanced interior trim, heck, I even got rid of that multi-color striped sweater the pilot was wearing....nothing quite as horrible as a sweater...especially a multi-color striped one.
As soon as I finalize the effects and lights on this plane, I will upload this new skin, along with what I hope to be a very cool exhuast effects package (not sure if the CFS2 exhaust effect I have in mind will work in FS9...if it does I will be using it on all my piston powered FS9 planes...neat multicolored exhaust flame and a nice stream of engine exhaust smoke...all from one effect file).
Here are some screen shots I took just a few minutes ago. This will be my personal P-20 Pacer, but I will let you folks enjoy it as well...my Mommy taught me to share, so dang it I'm sharing.
I am 98% sure these files will work on Brian's P-22 Tri-Pacer and P-22 Super Pacer as well...will confirm later today.
Yes, the pilot is now wearing a long sleeve T-shirt with a vintage American Gasoline logo on it. I love vintage gas signs and logos...have a nice collection of them in digital form to use for skinning purposes.
At one time Lockheeds and de Havillands were the most numberous planes in my collection....Piper has now become the company with the most reprsentation in my GA collection...well, I am pretty sure...will have to take a census to confirm.
