View Full Version : ARCHER: PRESENTING "41 TANGO"
04-27-2002, 02:20 PM
Well, folks, here's my one and only livery contribution to the Archer, N8441T, which rolled off the line at Vero Beach just ahead of Nels' Archer, N8439T.
41T is owned by my friend, Doug Horton, and in reality is a 1982 Piper Dakota, but I liked the scheme, and thought I would put it on the Archer, and share it with everyone.
I should have it uploaded to FlightSim.com within the next couple of days. :-)
Also, for those of you repainting, do not forget, you can also repaint the interior and VC (put in new fabric, etc.). It's all there on the template for you. Perhaps not as easy to deal with as with the 737, but there's much more you can paint now!

I toyed around with new interior colors some. I couldn't come up with anything to suit me. What are the real Archer interior color possibilities? Gray? Tan? White? Black? (ouch.)

Heck if I remember, Bill. Not too many colors though. 41T has the same interior color as 39T does.
Actually, as many owners eventually put new interiors in, you can do whatever you would like, even a denim interior!
However, I have some nice cream leather from that C-310 I photographed, so maybe.....

Well Lou or Bill,
After working all afternoon on it (and it isn't done), I'm having problems with my Archer repaint. I'm trying my hand at the newer Archer III paint scheme. Anyway, there's something "bleeding" through on the right side of the fuselage. It is 3 white patches that won't go away no matter what I try. Granted, this is my first serious attempt at a repaint of any kind.
BTW, was there a reason for not including the bolts and other features on the body in a separate layer? The only way I've figured out how to paint it without losing the bolts and rivets is to add a new layer and use "Multiply". Is that the correct way to do it? BTW, I'm using Photoshop 5.5.
Here's a couple pictures showing the problem area I described above. Any help would be appreciated.

Actually, looks like bird poop from being in a hangar

That's the 'PEP' outlet, for "Piper External Power", and the cover's texture is on the left side of the'A' bitmap, near the tail. However, there's nothing you can do about the screws for it, and they will remain white.
There are screw textures at the top of the 'A' bitmap, but if you paint them, you may end up with green screws where you want white, so, pick your poison, as they say. ;-)
Thanks for doing what appears to be a VERY nice livery. :-)
