Wink Ahhh.....(insert slapping forehead smiley here)


Top is left...second it right just flipped, and that last one is the shadow from inside of the engine nacelles... The last one is not entirely mapped, just a small portion of it, but as of right now I have not needed to map more exterior parts...(probably as I get further into it...)

Oh, okay... I can see that having the right side 'flipped' will make painting and lining up seams, etc. easier.  With the power of today's Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro, flipping text is so easy it makes sense to make the larger, more detailed fuselage, etc. easier to paint...  Cool

There are several websites where if you have a reference photo available it will be analyzed and the font will be identified for you.

You need to crop out a single word and submit that for evaluation. Too much is worse than too little! Wink
