Niiiiiceeee, Jake! :smt001

Do you plan to add some load outs (tanks, rockets, radar pot etc.)?

Ray, get the paintbrush ready. we need at least a white, green and high-vis variants :smt003

Yes Martin, those loadouts will be included. The hard part so far is to figure out why the prop on #1 will not take a texture. The engines counter-rotate so #1 turns counter-clockwise. Would that have any effect? Eveything else seems to be the same. :? And thanks for the kind comments.

Jake did you already reverse the part axis on the prop to get it to spin the opposite direction?

If so maybe that's why it won't take??

If its a borrowed prop or been textured previously to reversal make sure that you don't have any polys highlighted in poly or point mode, then check that you have cleared "all poly textures" by clicking the button in the part texture assignment window.
The try assigning new textures but remember what Mike said about the XYZ axis as this will change the assignment directions.
Hope that helps.

Yeah Mike, I think that's what I did. I don't know any other way to make it spin counter-clock-wise. I'm gonna keep playin with it. Let me know if you have any ideas. This plane also has off-set thrust. The engines are "toed out" and at rest, they also point up slightly. I can't see how that would affect textures, but maybe it does.

Now that I think about it, it took textures when I mapped it to a texture on the model .bmp but now I'm using a prop texture by itself. Take a look at the picture of the wire-frame model on the first page.

Which prop part are you trying to texture? Prop_slow or still or what? Just one blade of the prop or the prop disc?

If it's the flat prop disc part, try subdividing that polygon.

Jake,

Great to hear what is on your list. I would love to give you any advise regarding the prop, but you better ask the next potted plant than me :oops:
Cheers,
Martin

Here are two more: The L-23 (Beech Twin Bonanza), and the C-45 (Beech 18). Still waiting for a painter to show up. I have the basic PSP files with layers ready to go. :)

Help me find a painter, Fred, and we can have a version for Skillet, Aunt Esther, and Lamont! :lol:

Here's a quick and dirty first stab at painting the L-23. Almost afraid to post after seeing John's work.

Still looking for someone interested in painting these guys.

Nice work :)

Any thoughts on doing a U-8f (Beech Queenair)? Seeing the green and white paint on the L-23 made me think of it... I actually own the cockpit of one, 62-3855 which will one day become a sim :)

Sorry, been away for awhile. Yep, the Queenair is nearly done too, at least the LOD 1 model. :)

Jake.... you're my hero!

Here's my baby, well, this is before getting cut down to just the cockpit section.

It's now sitting a little forlorn under a tarp waiting to continue the restoration and conversion to a simulator. It's either going to be a U-8f (as built) or converted to act as a C-12... not sure which yet.

Slowly working up "paint kits" of sorts for these guys. Mostly just panel lines at this point but trying to get them to a point where someone will want to paint them. :)
