Glad you are back in business! PC problems can be a real pain... Next project "still Soviet but bigger and an updated paint kit" my guess is that would be the long awaited Mig-29s?

I literally put up a picture of it :mrgreen: Just the RMAI An-22's, nothing cryptic in there sadly. That said I'm still working on the MKAI MiG conversions now I'm up to date with things

Too funny; I thought you were putting up the pic of the AN-22 as part of the East German release...

I wish, the East Germans never operated the An-22 but I can only imagine how good it would've looked in an NVA camo scheme & markings.

That also said, I have just put something else onto the hangar that I will be cryptic about, all I say is it's not Eastern Bloc this time :D

Your An-22 looks amazing Dan,

I refrained from using its NATO name there, you'll be glad :oops:

Looking forward to those Mil FPs too. I've been plonking statics down on my coverted sceneries to brighten them up a bit.

Dan
Out of interest and without looking are the retro KC-10 all blue and white or are there any Shamu's mixed in
You know what I'm going to ask next? :)

No shamu's mxed in at all, yet. As soon as I can find out which ones where in that scheme I'll upload a small update to it, but from what I've seen most of the KC-10's in the late 80's were in the blue & white scheme

I've found a cracking website that has what aircraft were in what scheme in 1991, seems about half of them or so were in the shamu scheme & the vast majority had some nose art as well which I'll do

So question regarding the TU-134s... When I visit SBAI / UTT websites it offers the FS2004 Tu-134 for sale... While I would consider the $8 purchase. But before I do have these models been converted to FSX / P3d and if so are the conversions offered for download upon purchase? In terms of Tu-134 I have the MRAI which is freeware for P3d any chance to start using that model instead? Thanks

It has indeed been converted to P3D, if you message Sergey via email he'll send you the P3D converted models

Thanks Dan,
I'm enjoying updating the Warsaw Pact stuff for the DDR.

For the Interflug Tu-154M, I can't find a small texture file for the front of the engine nacelles however. Does anyone have tcai_tu154m_detail.bmp (or .dds) to help me out?

Or is there a conversion pack I'm missing?

Just a little update,

The KC-10's are now painted up in a mixture of SAC & Shamu schemes as it was in 1991, I've also moved some aircraft around as I can tell what air base they were at. I'd still say about 75% or so is still guesswork. Quite a few of them have nose art as well but I'm missing a few as there aren't any good images of those pieces of nose art.

Also I'll be uploading an update of the East German MiG 29's, I got a couple of the roundels the wrong way around & 3 out the 4 UB models in completely the wrong scheme. In reality they also had individual camo schemes but I'm not doing that this time, I don't have the time or patience to do that. Many thanks to Hartwig to pointing these errors out to me.

Should have both of these uploaded by the end of the week after I've tested them all.

I've done flightplans for the already released MiG 21's, MiG 23's, Mi-8's & Mi-2's done by Jason Rogers. Everything else I've painted up with the exception of the 2 Il-62's & 2 of the Tu-134's in which all I've done is change the serials from existing liveries, so those will not be released. The military livery of the Tu-134 was done by myself so that one will be included.
Any idea where the TU-134A and Il-62M paint schemes can be downloaded from....hunted usual place to no avail.

Many Thanks

Jim
