Re: Welcome to the Pond 4 years 10 months ago #30628

Hi all. I'm not sure I'm in the right place for this, so please bear with me. I joined the forum about 10 days ago, so I'm new here, and to the concept of the forum in general ( I belong to about six now, and have a total post count of...how many do I have here?).

I live not too far away from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, and I'm trying to get a collection of as many of their planes as possible for FS9. I don't have texture editing software, so I was wondering if someone would be willing to paint the Auster AOP6 into the one at CWH. There are a few photos of it here (www.warplane.com/pages/aircraft_beagle.html click on the "Photos" link), and I could easily make a trip to get any more that are needed.

Thanks to any who might consider doing this.

You came to the right place :)

Welcome to our humble little home, there are several excellent painters here, including Garry Russell, the master himself.

I am trying to remember wether Peter Watkins did a Canadian paint of the AOP6 == either way, he will be your man

He happens along every day - so I will point him to this post.

Hope you like our little library

Hi JD

I painted this aircraft in June 2009. It is actually a T7 and can be found in the library here if you search for 'RCAF Auster'.

Cheers and welcome!

Just thought I'd do the polite thing and say Hi. Just been grabbing some downloads and thought that I should register and say thanks.

Peter Watkins is your man -- Not sure if he has the Iris Vulcan but leave a message for him here
and he will tell you, nice new photos of XL426 would help

Hi Guys

Just a quick word to say hello and to compliment the developers on some wonderful models,

A small request though. Is it possible to ask Edward Cook to revamp his FS2002 Percival Provost T1 for FS2004, please?

Thanks
