    Anyone made use of the F6 painkit?

    You're right. Thing is I've been sort of learning as I go along, so I didn't know how to do that beforehand. But I'm sure now I can do it fairly quickly. I remember with the roundel that I copied it from another texture of yours, but I doubt it would be difficult to restructure that. Problem is I'm 20 years old, so I've hardly seen Lightnings, let alone an F1A. I saw the variations, but the ones that had the dayglo sticker on the right had a different crest on the tail... which is problematic. In regards to the nameplate, I have no idea what it looks like specifically. These repaints have been quite a bit of a learning experience! Peter

    Got a little distracted but I've got back to finishing XM192 up. Quite pleased with the effects so far. Just need to move onto the wings.

    So what are your thoughts on this? I've only done the front texture so far today, but I've wanted to give it a bit of a worn look there. On some of the panels I put a scratched metal picture on top, lowered the opacity on it to give it a more used look. I also put those panels there on the alpha and coloured them accordingly some it would be a mix of dull and shine. Then I went to the alpha and used the scratched metal look and put it over the whole aircraft(though I may remove it from the bottom), so some areas are shinier than others as it goes through the light. In no way am I asking it to be super realistic - but is it somewhat realistic/expected?

    Appreciate the advice. I've just started moving onto my next paint, working on Wattisham Target Facilities Flight. I've been trying to capture the sort of dull shine the older F1As had with scratches on top. I've only done the tail so far, but I really want to try and do this properly. If anyone has any pictures of older silver tails that looks at the scratches and colour smudges that would be great. Any further advice is always appreciated. Peter

    The files in the GIMP folder are of a .xcf extension, but they have all of the layers in there. I think for me I'm just trying to become more efficient in making the textures. Out of interest, how do you align all the alpha things to account for markings, and how do you integrate markings onto specular files? Peter

    Fantastic really appreciate it. You wouldn't mind sending the file over to me? Cheers, Peter

    As above, I've attached the files so you can have a look as it's defeating me... I've checked, and the textures and the alphas is all correctly aligned... I've looked at the texture.cfg and there's no reason for me to see anything out of place... Peter

    So for all intents and purposes, I have finished a majority of the paint. I planned to do more weathering work but considering the nose is still being elusive I've held off. I retried doing the nose all over again, just to see by chance if it all works out. Same problem persisted. So I've uploaded the files that I've been using, so if anyone wants to have a look they can try it.

    Usually I make the textures in GIMP and save them as a BMP file, and orientate them correctly, such that by the time it goes to DXT I just put it all together and export it. So with the last picture I posted, it's still the same issue that it changes from the correct position and flips horizontally, as with the previous video. I suppose the odd thing is that looking at other people's repaints in comparison I can't see anything that I'm doing which is explicitly wrong? I mean the F6 paint is progressing just fine in comparison and doesn't have this odd issue... Peter

    Well, ended up doing the tail of XS451. No issues with it, though I only did the base texture, nothing to do with specular.
