Aircraft Texture Repaint Kits

Postby Fly2e » Mon May 24, 2004 8:18 am

Thinking of taking up Aircraft Repainting? Simviation now has a download section that is specifically dedicated to this hobby!
Here you will find all the FS2004 default aircraft, from the Cessna to the 747!
Rob Smith has generously made available repaint kits for all the FS2004 default aircrafts.
You are free to use these textures to create your own repaints but please give the author credit for his hard work. You are not allowed to use these textures for payware aircraft or add ons. The kit does not include any other files except the textures for each aircraft.
Also in this section are downloads that contain paint kits for many other different types of aircrafts!

From the beginner to the professional, this section is worth taking a look at! Let's see what type of repaint you can do!

There are a few tutorials on how to "Repaint" an aircraft available for you to use.
Try "Grump's Lair" hosted by Simviation at:
http://www.simviation.com/lair/index.htm

Or the link in "The Lair" to Garry Smith's tutorial at:
http://www.gjsmith.net/Tutorial/full_tutorial.htm

There is some real helpful information here on getting your painting career off the ground!
Good Luck and Happy Flying!!

Dave

Very interesting indeed. Do you know if the same kits can be used for FS2002 as well? Most airplanes do exist in FS2002 too and at least the Cessna 172 which I checked seems identical (at least the _t file).

It's not just a matter of putting one there.  First someone has to find one and let Pete (site owner) know that there is one in existance (and how to find it) and then he has to put it up.

It's not at all a simple process.
Great edit, Bob.


Google it.

This is Rob the designer of most of the default repaint kits for fs9. I am currently working on the missing aircraft i think their are five that i have to do. if anyone has an aircraft they would like done send me a detailed e-mail. i would love to do both repaint kits and repaints I will post mt CF-18 when it is done so look for that too.

There are lots of free painting packages that come with cover cd's on computer mags from time, there is often one included with one magazine each month.
They are older versions but more tha adequate for starting out painting and may well be all you ever require.
