What makes you think that particular aircraft has a paintkit?

You mightn't be aware, but a paintkit has to be made separately. So if the a/c isn't expected to be too popular or if the paintkit is too difficult to make, nobody will bother. Idea

As tailhook has indicated there is probably no paintkit available for this aircraft especially so, as it is a fictional a/c ..... but all is not lost - I note that the texture folder for the Globe Explorer livery lends itself well to editing and could be used as a paintkit. The important bmp files (main, wings,etc) are all well labelled and the existing paint gives a clue to where to place airline name, tail number, and any 'go fast' lines you may wish to add. You would of course have to delete all the existing paint that you do not want to retain. A fairly simple task if you have some experience in repainting and knowledge of a layered photo editor. Hope this helps.

most of his models come out with a plain white texture set. if this is the case take it to photoshop and copy it onto a new layer. make the base layer solid white leaving the original on top. with the new top layer shift over to the right to the layers palette and change the style from 'normal' to 'multiply' and shift its transparency down a bit. this makes the white clear and the lines stay semi-transparent.

how else can you paint a carenado model so easily Wink

In the case of the Stratocruiser, he has not included a plain white texture but the Globe Explorer texture is mostly white but it all depends on how familiar Sanuska is with Photoshop procedures. I was giving what I thought was the simplest way for him to repaint the a/c - in fact it would only take about 10 minutes to convert the Explorer livery to a paintkit of sorts. Your method although obvious to someone with Photoshop experience may appear somewhat daunting to someone with less knowledge of layering processes. I await his response.

Sorry for this late replay. I repainted the Excalibur using the supplied 'Global' texture. I named the result 'Blue Streak'. Where can I post a pix of it?
