Thanks for doing a test image. Looks excellent to me from here.
Any way you can mail the texture file to me? It would be for my viewing only in FS.
I have some other shots from a fellow who was up close to the plane which might help. Hopefully someone would want to do this plane.
I got out the paintkit images for the Caravelle just for fun, and could not figure out how to do layers in Photoshop Elements. I know it is possible to add layers, but when I tried, the layer image, where I'd paste graphics from the photo, would not show up.
Probably something simple.
Mark, if you get the urge to do a repaint, I can email you these photos I have, but with the owner's permission of course. He probably will be ok with it.
Will check back soon, take care,
