Point of order: By definition, a 'steed' can't be 'trusty' while it's grounded. 8)

That's like owning a bloody good horse... but it's lame!

:D

I'd love to see textures for N546MC and N734PH. I took my first flight in N734PH and I soloed and passed my checkride in N546MC. I currenly fly N546MC every chance I get 8)

That's awesome, exactly what I envisioned for C-FMXO when I was painting it. Thanks a ton! :D

Alright, so I've a few new paints to share on here, but since this one was a request, I'll post it first:

CF-GRG

The real CF-GRG is actually a 172M, but hey, none of the cool paints that I want to do are ever a 172R. I can see from the images available online that the real one has a really blue interior, but I'm not even qualified to be painting the outside, much less the inside!

C-GBAF

Again, not a 172R in real life, but I thought the paint was neat. And bright! This has sat on my hard drive for a bit - it was actually the second paint I ever attempted and there's a few small things I wouldn't mind fixing, buuuut being rather new to the path tool in photoshop meant that somewhere along the way I've lost all of my paths for the shapes (I've figured out how to save paths since then). I'd have to redo the whole thing pretty much to fix what I'd like to fix, so hopefully no-one spots the few mistakes. :wink:

C-GAIO

Once again, not a 172R in the real world. Oh well. It doesn't come across real well in these screenshots due to jpg compression, but there's a subtle color variance in the three red stripes. Of course, since I was working off of internet images to create the paint, the color variance that I perceived may have, ironically, been a result of jpg compression in the first place. But I liked it, so it stayed. :D

C-FEVS

I do kinda (obviously) like these simple retro paints - this might be my favorite of the bunch so far. I'll be spending a few hours with this one for sure. :D

I'm the one that requested it and thank you!
Awesome job!! I've downloaded it from the link at Avsim as did some other folks. I guess I'm not the only one that's into that old school look :)
That's an incredible piece of work, hard to tell from the real one. My computer took a crappola and just now looked to see if you had gotten it done... nice work, much appreciated. If you were a member of FSEconomy, I'd pay you virtual dollars for that!! :)
