    Default Fooling Around at Last!

    Spring settling in Burgundy. Got the Stearman out of the hangar and got some shots. About the color trouble I had with that plane, feel like that will finally be let like is. Not so bad in fact!

    Nice Gerard, what was wrong with the color? Looks okay to me, might be a little lighter than the original, but still very nice. Great download!

    Thanks for the kind comment!
    For the color: lighter, that is my choice (and when under good lighting condition, I also improved the reflectancy). But, I you look attentively, you'll check that the upper left wing has a slightly more dark yellow that the rest. And I even saw that it was the same with the rear right horizontal stabilizer. With that flight, I think I will decide to let things like. That's not so bad in fact

    Yes, in pic #1, I can now see the difference in yellow! I will have to look at mine later! Enjoy, Gerard, it is a nice download!

    Don't bother! Yours should be Okay. I got that with mine because I tweaked the colors to a better reflectancy. All went well with most, except for those both textures. But indeed that gives some originality

    I did not notice the color difference at first, but still nice shots of your Stearman Gerard. I have that one also, but I have not flown it for a long time.

    Thanks Larry. I think it's with you i'd already evoked the question of my Stearman colors
    I think indeed I will fly it like is

    I like this. Beautiful pictures Gérard. Amazing that scenery is only 1.96 MB? does it work well with ORBX?

    Best wishes.

    Khalid: Thanks! On the other hand, I never wonder whether my terrains are orbx compatible. The sole trouble I see is in terms of the terrains' altitude. That could yield either troughs or plateaus. Above all, the photoreals are not part of the download, for cause of copyright with the FSET

    Peer: comment appreciated
