Hi Radarman - was having a look at your pics of the Hawke Goose and they all looked a bit drab - so thought a little brightening up would be in order. Easier said than done - the texture files do not follow the usual repaint conventions. I have emailed the designer, hopefully, to get a paintkit - so might able to develope it further.
Here's what I have managed so far -
...and before one of our experts tells me it should be in the water - this is for repaint purposes only - and have you ever tried to paint anything while its bobbing up and down
Glad to see you feel up to painting.
So far very good, I can't wait to see it fully painted, flying and possibly the new texture uploaded to avsim.
