WOW! Guess I'll have to make those Azzurra Air charter plans The planes flying for Alitalia all wore the Alitalia livery and those are in the Alitalia plans. The rest of the jets did charters.
I am also working on backdated 1998 scenery for LIRF.
EDIT: Turns out Azzura Air did a small number of scheduled routes with the RJ85s independent of Alitalia and I forgot I'd decided to skip them for now. I finished the 737 charter plans, I will have to finish up the scheduled flights later.

Here is the revised AZI 73G and the new AZI A320. For the 73Gs, I added in the Boeing titles and engine logos where appropriate, which adds a bit more diversity to the four aircraft (D-AGEZ had an identical sister-ship D-AGEY). The RJs only needed the Avro titles added, those are done, and I am not re-previewing them, but the AZI project is complete.
I'm neck-deep into the JBSim Do-328-100 today, the first paint for this model I have done. Hopefully screenshots of Minerva will be forthcoming tonight or tomorrow.
I have a busy weekend, so I am going to try to get some uploading done by tomorrow.

A note on HD paint kits, re-visiting something I posted awhile back, with more info.
I have asked several different authors for HD paint kit access for some of the more complex PSD kits, most notably TFS, AIG, and OSP. I have repeatedly been politely declined or directed to some other dead-end inquiry. I am not offended at all over this, because these authors are basically taking a 1024 paint kit and re-creating it from scratch to 2048/4096, it's not just a matter of putting the original kit in Photoshop and doubling the size of the file, it comes out all dithered and blurry.
The AIG 757 spraykit has in excess of 650 Photoshop layers for all of the options, and the TFS A300s and A310 have around 550-600 layers on average. So, you can see that this is a very meticulous and patience-driven task, and I really don't have the patience right now for it.
The OSP ATRs and some of the AIA aircraft are much simpler layer-wise, so I may at some point do my own HD paint kits for some of those.
Does anybody know where I can find a paintkit/spraykit for the AIG DC-9-50? None available on AVSIM, Flightsim, or AIG's forums. If I can't find one I will have to resort to the AIA model for the EEZ DC-9-50s. Making my own paint kit for the AIG model would not difficult since they released all other DC-9 paintkits and they share most common parts, but if it's not publicly available I don't want to stomp on somebody's feelings or copyright, kind of like the AIM DC-10s. Any input would be great.
Thanks, and here is the DC-9-30 for EEZ.

So, good news... I received blanket permission from Andy Carroll at AIG (original paint kit designer) to release the DC-9-50 Spraykit on behalf of Alpha India Group. I am fiddling with the EAI/APG kit that cgold sent me, and restoring it into a release-grade paint kit which matches the layer format of the other AIG DC-9 kits; and I will upload it to AVSIM and Flightsim tomorrow or Monday.
Obviously, I did my bit with this new paint kit as well...
I got ultra-busy with life this last week, and didn't meet any deadlines I stated last weekend (sorry). I am re-doing the FJI stripe on some of the aircraft, in what I have come to call the "1970s Waterbed Sheets" livery. Realistically, some of the people on this forum might not know what that means, lol. Here are a couple more FJI paints I squeaked out this week...
The FJI fleet is quite diverse. I still have the obvious 73G and 744 to do, but also an ATR423, two BN-2 Trislanders (my own model), and an EMB-110 to finish things off. So, patience, and I should get this all wrapped up and uploaded next week.
So, here is the re-worked HS748 (I found the rest of 'em), and oddly enough, painting my own model for this airline was quite a tough little job, the chickens came home to roost on the Trislander, lol....
Very weird thing about the Trislander, FJI only had one, in only one serial, but the 1975-scheme pix I have distinctly has DQ-FCC on the engine, haven't figured that one out yet.
