Repainted the pilot to match a bit too... (Shirt, Jeans, Cap).

Super Alan,thanks a lot.

Are you going to do shiny metal repaint of the 182?

I would really like a paint of the old style shiny metal lower fuselage and cloured top half.

Thanks again.
regards Chris

Thanks everyone!.

John,
Something like that. Anti-Glare panel matte finish with some wear like Oxidation of the paint and weather beaten. Also starting to roughen up a bit from microscopic cracks due to the wear, temperatures, rain, sun... especially down here in Florida.

The red leading tip of the Fin against the fuselage just front of the Yellow/black stripe should be WHITE!!! oooops!.lol)
OK It will take me 2 minutes to correct that so I'll make an update of the main *.*_t.dds file.

Beautiful stuff, there's something about the 182 that makes it look really good in "formal uniform" (e.g. USFS or CAP). And it would really be a shame to have a plane look so beautiful and stand idle, so here's a nice little utility I saw mentioned in another forum that will keep it busy:

https://github.com/ollyau/FSActiveFires/releases

Essentially, it downloads data from NASA's FIRMS site and inserts active fires in FSX/P3D (the fire/smoke effect is actually rather nice).

Tym,

I use FSActiveFires to determine ALL my virtual flights. Something different every time.
