ANY DECENT REPAINTERS OUT THERE?

Hi there

I was wondering are there any decent repainters out there because I would really like to have my own repaint on my IFDG A319 - 111. Unfortunately I cannot get Davec to to it properly so I was wondering anyone else?

If so you can send me a PM or just reply here.

Thanks SteveT

Once you've been perusing these forums for a while, you will realise that there are many "decent" repainters in this huge community. What you're probably not aware of at this stage is that to repaint an aircraft requires a lot of effort and work.
So if you want to place an order for a particular livery on the fly, you might just have to make the prospective repainter an offer he can't refuse. Devil

Good luck,

For SteveT/Mike
Arrived home again mid-morning and started your Airbus A319 repaint - didn't even go on the Net as in my last PM on Wednesday before leaving I promised you that I would get on with it when I returned. Actually spent the last 5 hours producing something to show you. For a break, I went into the forum and was surprised to see your public post saying that I "would not or could not do your repaint." My only warning to you was that IFDG had stringent copyright rules which they strictly maintained and I would not break these copyright rules but certainly advised you that I would still do the repaint. Yours and Tailhook's comments of getting a 'decent' repainter to do your repaint were uncalled for and implied that I was other than a 'decent' repainter. I note that you intend to invite others via PM to do your repaint. Let's hope that you have got someone to accept your repaint, but if like with me, you get on to the repainter two and a half hours after acceptance to show you something of the repaint, then he/she will give you 'short shrift'.
I know you are quite young, with a built-in low patience threshhold, but you have got to realise that repainting is a tedious, trial and error process usually done by amateurs, with many other commitments, who you cannot expect to answer to your beck and call 24/7 and certainly will very seldom accept a repaint job with a deadline. Still, all good luck to you and your new repaint.

As in the old UK TV show 'Bully', when a contestant was unsuccessful - Jim Bowen, the compere would say " Hard Luck - come and see the prize you might have won!!" In this case, it is "Sorry, you would rather have a 'decent painter' - here is what you might have ended up with ( well 30% of it - all I've had time for)" -

I am a little surprised that you could infer in your post that I was other than a 'decent painter' without knowing the full saga of SteveT's request.
I have done many repaints for Members of this community and others. Without exception, I have had comments of satisfaction and gratitude from all of them. Your comment "make the prospective repainter an offer he can't refuse." is offensive to me and all other amateur painters who would not accept payment for their work, You obviously realise that repainting is a tedious job at the best of times which makes your comments even more surprising. SteveT has made an apology by PM which I will not accept as the original slur on my name was made in a public forum and wish his apology to appear in the same medium. You may also take the opportunity to do the same.

Sorry it would seem that the repaint posts are getting in a shambles - to put a request in it is much better to start a new thread or we have several unrelated posts in the same thread, to this end I will start a new thread.
