First Repaint Help

Bmwdriver Guest

I need a little help. I am trying to do my first repaint and cant figure some things out. I have PSP, FSrepaint and DXTbmp.

I am trying to repaint the Carenado T34 Mentor and am having one heck of a time with it(might be to complex for me LOL). I started with the stock textures that came with the package(all metal in color/texture). Now the problem I am having is that I would like the aircraft to have a white base coat, and I just cant get the metal color to turn to white. I have tried everything I no of or have read online. so if someone can teach me how to change large areas of the aircraft from one color to a new color that would be great.

my seconded problem is I thought if I was to find someone’s repaint that had a white base coat I could use it to lay my own paint on top. Well this the point of my seconded frustration. the textures I found have a green pin stripe and I cant change or remove the green without losing the rivet detail under the color.

please help any way you can I am getting frustrated 😳

hopefully in the future I would also like to do some of the complex repaints that have the high gloss pictures on the textures.
thanks

As I said I've no clue how to do repaints but I guess it should give you an idea about the basics of repainting. Good luck with it and come back with the results so we can all enjoy in your masterpieces! 😀 😉

Im in the same boat as you. I have just bought FS repainter, and i have photoshop 7.0. I downloaded DXTbmp, and having some problems here.
I also want to start learning how to repaint my AC.

I know there are alot of tutorials out there.

In FS repaint alot of my AC textures don't show up. I go to DXTbmp. but don't know what to save them as. or how to get them into FS repaint.
