FG doesn't list new repaints anymore on the MyFG page. Would it possible to create a section in the forum where us repainters can list our latest repaints? It would make it a lot easier to keep up to date with the latest repaints and also avoid any duplicate repaints that might occur due to different guys doing the same thing.

What do the admin guys think?

I'm neither an admin guy nor a repainter, but I like Niki's suggestion. I just checked several of the folders in the jets section and there are many new repaints. There's a desert version of the F-15, an Italian version of the Tornado, a Chinese and USAF MiG-15, a PlayBoy Navy F-14 and several F-16 versions.

Why not use the announcements section--it was originally intended to announce new models coming out--but hasn't been used in a long time for that purpose.

Adding them to the Updates section worked nicely but they don't seem to appear there anymore.

I tried to do a Phantom Rhino and a green Yak-3 but lack of a good graphics program and/or poor graphics skills has so far soured any fruit.

Can I recommend Photoshop Elements? You can find the early version (2.0) on Ebay for pocket change. Make sure the manual is included...unscrupulous sellers split the manual from the CD and sell them separately. From there, it's just a matter of diligence. I did my first repaint (Blue Angels Phnatom) using the Photoshop Deluxe software that was bundled with my printer. Not my best work--nor did I do it the easiest way--but it worked. I just kept on a doin' and things got progresssively easier (and better).

I agree, I picked up an unopened older version of Photoshop Elements on Ebay for less that 20.00 including the shipping. It works well and is all I used to complete many of the repaints that were previously mentioned.

I will start putting a note up in the announcements section when I send any new repaints in for posting.
