What a chunk of Chocolate!

Post Al FR-153 »

But, if you are old enough to remember the original commercial, this is not a Chunky. What better paint scheme could you have for a Hershey Bar Cherokee than a Chocolate Hershey Bar :?: And before you complain that you prefer your Hershey's with almonds, may I suggest that the nuts are usually behind the yoke(s).

Based on an actual aircraft (photo supplied by Taindraggin68 and Air West Aviation, Inc., this became a joint effort. Taildraggin68 supplied the interior to match the original aircraft, and the Fox River Paint Shops did the exterior.


Actual aircraft:

It is suggested that you read the README FIRST file within the zip file.

One Caveat.............. Neither Taldraggin68 or I will warranty this aircraft against wing droop in warm weather. :lol:

That's what I forgot to put on the floor :shock:

Thats a good idea Craig, I'm going to start sticking something "ordinary" but not really associated with a plane items in my interior paints.........may find half an Oreo, sippy cup, french fry.....who knows what will turn up :D

Looks good enough to eat!!! If I get wig droop here in Aus, I'll just have to fly upside down for a while :wink: . Oh, hang on... we fly that way all the time, down under, so no problem.... :D :lol:

Thanks for the clean and dusty files. It will be great to be able to change it's appearance at will.

One question - what is the file "vc3_s.dds" for?

Cheers,
Mike

That's the spec layer for the seats and it gives the fabric more of a fabric look as opposed to vinyl 8)

Thanks. I just downloaded a DDS decompiler program so I could have a go at something, so it's good to know what each file is for. You never know, if I can suss this one out, I may have a go at a repaint.


Cheers,
Mike

Great to see the Cherokee still getting some loving attention. Very nice work chaps! :)

Careful Mike - if you do that your wig might fall off completely. Fly aeros with a loose hairpiece in the cockpit and there could be a helluva price toupe! :mrgreen:

Excellent work on the paint match. That can drive one nuts, occasionally.
