Great job Wombat, and thanks for including a different interior for the civilian model.
How would you go about putting the blue prop knob into another plane?
Thank you for your comment, I'm glad you like the repaint. As for the cockpit, I didn't do the work myself, I found it here it this thread:http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=93&t=33154&hilit=civilian+cockpits+2.1
I had wanted to make an all black cockpit, but when I found this I liked how it looked and decided to save myself the work.
I can't speak for how he did it, but what I would do is open the various cockpit textures you want to change in some DXT to BMP converter, or use a DXT plugin of some kind, send it to your editor of choice. After unlocking the layer create a new layer, or make a copy of that layer, on top of that one and basically repaint the knobs in the color of your choosing on that new layer, using whatever blending mode looks the best to you. Save your work often so you can go back in case something goes awry. Then flatten your image and send it back to be converted back to DXT. Check it out in the sim and repeat as needed until you're pleased with the results.
I had to send this main skin to the sim about 10 times before I got the text on the cowling to wrap properly, so either you have patience or you learn patience when you do repaints. I'm still learning, lol.
