Call me stupid but I cant find any instructions for the overland repaint kits anywhere..
I have the layered images in photoshop but what do I do with them after that?
If you can't find a blank pain kit you may have to download ready done paint and clean it off, if you do remember to save it after you've cleaned it for future use.
it comes with a blank template for photo shop but i am not sure what to do with it after i have painted it.
the fuse template looks like this
there are also a few for ther parts as well
But there is no readme or anything to say what to do after you have done the paint.
OK, you have a blank to start with, you say you have Photo Shop, then you need to open the file in there and begin.
I don't have PS so I can't help much further but try here, it is a great site for info and plenty of help:
I have recently joined, I read a lot of the posts and found a good few tips that helped me.
If there are layers already you need to isolate the paint layer (it should be marked) and paint on that layer. do whatever you are trying to do there, then save it. DO not mess with the layer that has the skin rivets and windows!
Photoshop is perfect for this.
I know how to paint in the template..
Its what the hell to do with the template afterwards???
Other textures I have seen broken up into 3 pieces for each side of the fuse..
This is my 2nd try at Repaints and i feel i should leave it to people who can do it...
Ok Finally I am getting somwhere..
I replaced one section of an existing file with blue bg and white splodge
Looks like i am slowly on my way now..
Pappy, was the original aircraft paint the rear part with the yellow logo and you have replaced the front section or the other way round?
The original Vietnam livery is one of Overland's deafult's
I just used the original texture files to match up the new ones on top..
I will start on a simple reallivery now
Switched to the 747 paintkit and had a bit of fun..
Not totaly aligned by any means but its progress
You are making progress... but no comment on the hello kitty... ugh.
