Tail Numbers

Hey boys & girls!

Newbie to repainting here. In some paint kits, I'm having trouble finding "the spot" to reverse the tail number. How does one overcome this? Am I missing something?

Hello, New Light! I'm getting into repaints myself (you've advanced many months ahead of me, obviously!), also using DXTBmp and Paint. I can open with DXTBmp alright enough and then send it to Paint for modification, it's just saving the 24-bit BMP into a 32-bit format the original was. I must be missing something, I've pored over the tutorial and other help places but never asked anyone. Any advice for a person who's walking in your footsteps? (Please, don't call The Police on me... :icon-lol: ) Thanks!
