The thing is is that I would like it in Brush Script MT font like in microsoft word but I don't know how to add the Hula Wahine in that font in Gimp do you have any idea how?

Well since the Swap Page will not except CSs for the Pilatus PC-21. I'm going to post it here
This CS was a experiment and learning process to see what could and could not be done with the _n.tga I made Semi-generic(T-27) panel lines and rivets , access panel covers and doors that have the hinges and latch's bump mapped ,small intake scoops are recessed, and the vent on the "rescue" arrow is bumped out ,louver holes are recessed, canopy handle well is recessed and the handle is bumped out
The Brazilian Aerobatic team flies the T-27 Tucano but as We don't have one in RF yet I put this CS on the next closest thing
when the T-27 that rcplanefubar is working on hits the swap page I'll redo this cs for it
till then FAB fans will have to do with this substitute
If you don't have the Pilatus PC-21 you can find it here:

Hey

Can you sharpen the CS on the B-24. My computer crashed and I lost a lot of CS of the B-24 but they were all very pixely, and gimp can't do anything. Heres the link and you will see what I mean.

Sharpen the CS

No I lost the CS I had for it, I never uploaded them. I was wondering if you could make the CS on the original plane sharper, so I can make a sharper CS based off that tga file.

Should I

I have a CS for the yak 54 that took me awhile to make. But to some it may look like a fill job. Should I post it?

I have no clue how to upload the pic to this.

Here is a Cleaner , sharper version of the B-24 .tga to work from ........
Cleaned up(actually re-did) the wheel wells, stars 'n' bars
the "w" on the tail as well as the leading edges of all the Wing /Stab surfaces
removed the nose art except for the victory graphics
as you can see in the before and after below there was a big improvement ....... you're right the original was pretty bad
just copy / paste this .tga to your "renamed" CS and paint away

How?

I was wondering how you get a reflective chrome CS like this one. I downloaded it thinking it would look like the hanger 9 plane, but it was solid chrome. Please tell me how.

http://www.knifeedge.com/forums/down...o=file&id=7733

P.S. It only shows up chrome in the flight sim.

The file did not import properly then.

yes thats a error of some kind
you can make a CS with reflective chrome or more accurately polished aluminum
It done with the _s.tga using the alpha channel heres one I uploaded as a semi "blank" for people to use as a base for the g3 - 4.5 P-51 make sure that in the RF graphics settings that you have the "Normal maps" marked "YES" to see it
