My First Repaint!

Postby New Light » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:45 am

Hey boys & girls! After tinkering with FS9 & FSX since 2003, I finally decided to try my hand at repainting. I thought it would be a lot harder, but I was pleasantly surprised that it only took about 6 hours of work - including time to familiarize myself with the process. I used DXTbmp and Paint. The repaint is for the default Cessna 172 SP Skyhawk. Check it out and tell me what you think! Thanks, Dave

Better than my 1st repaint,,

I ended up learning how to use DXT Program coupled with Paint Shop Pro # 9 for the best results

Thanks for the kind words and advice JetRanger! I'm looking at possibly getting an editor of some sort in the future.

Best wishes,

Dave
