Six years ago I made my first repaint. I was so frustrated about the poor ANR textures which came with Ignacio Alfredo Mendives beautiful Fiat G55 that I decided to try to produce something better. Although the only program I had was Microsoft's default paint I succeeded to create something which was the start of a long addiction.
In all those years Ignacio's Fiat is still the only G.55 available for FS9. As I think I have learned some tricks over the years I decided to redo the textures I did six years ago and started a brand new paintkit for this ancient, but still very nice model. The image below shows the difference in detail. Left the current "layered"version, on the right wing the "flat" version of six years ago.
Still a very long way to go, but I love repainting as it is very relaxing and it definitely clears you mind.
