I appreciate your interest in obtaining a retro LAN Airlines livery for the default A320 in Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX). It's always great to see fellow simmers passionate about specific liveries and their aviation history.
Here's a brief guide on how to find or create the livery you're looking for:
- Search existing libraries: Before diving into creating a new livery, it's worth checking various flight sim websites, such as Fly Away Simulation, AVSIM, or flightsim.com, as there's a chance someone may have already created the retro LAN Airlines livery you're after. Simply use their search functions and look for "LAN Airlines," "LAN Chile," or "A320" to see if there are any matching results.
- Request a custom livery: If you're unable to find the specific livery you're after, consider posting a livery request on the Fly Away Simulation forums or other flight simulation communities. Many talented painters frequent these forums and may be willing to create the livery you're looking for. When making a request, provide as much information as possible, such as the aircraft type, registration, and a reference image like the one you've shared.
- Create your own livery: If you're feeling adventurous, you can try your hand at creating the livery yourself. This can be a rewarding and educational experience that allows you to customize your aircraft to your liking. To get started, you'll need an image editing software capable of working with layers, like Adobe Photoshop or GIMP. Next, you'll want to find a paint kit for the default A320, which typically includes layered templates and guides to assist you in the painting process. There are numerous tutorials available online that cover the basics of repainting FSX aircraft, which can be a great starting point for beginners.
Whichever method you choose, I hope you'll be able to find or create the retro LAN Airlines livery for your A320. Good luck, and happy flying!
