TerribleT - Birthday

Recommended Posts

@ Trevor and Matt: Thank you gentlemen, I had a fine day with the extended family.

@ Jorge - touche my friend and thank you for the "many more to come"

@ Tim - mipela bin hamamas tumas na spak liklik, tengyu tru long tingting bilong yu.

I had another one of those little anniversaries yesterday that I seem to be having a lot of lately - 60 years since going solo at Lakunai airstrip in the Rabaul Flying Club Tiger moth after 10 hours ab initio under the instruction of CFI "Woolly" Allshorn AFC (Wing Commander RAAF retd.) - a very memorable experience.

And my dear wife allowed me to buy this bird, seen here at YPDN prior to maiden flight to YBTI which is all  time allowed yesterday - had a post maintenance check ride in one of those owned by Amann Aviation at YPDN in 1989. Has a few bugs but probably the one of the best out of the box Carenado products so far but no VH paint so I used the OO one instead:

I will do a quick rego change this week to one or two of the paints until time permits

have you any suggestions Terry on regos or which paint, consider it a snappy tight ass gift

Ah Marvellous Matt - hows about VH-LVG which is based at the Craig Creation Stawell or VH-YJG based at Essendon or VH-THR based in Ayr? No idea about which paints and thank you very much whatever ones you decide to do.

its one file per paint, so its very easy so please find the attached zip file in this reply>>>   Tez bday gift.zip

LVG paint worked fine Matt and here she is OTG YSWL

I made myself a thumbnail from that shot

59bc861a0c350_LVGThumbnail.jpg.d0003e7e6a32107e4c87a3b483193dd3.jpg

And a readme for the copied and renamed texture 3

Readme VH-LVG.txt

THR texture change came through as a BMP file so ended up with an all black fuselage.

Thanks again for your great support.

The one I had a ride in 1989 VH-NYB now looks like this and is situated next to the Daly Waters pub if you go for a snort down that way
