Thank you, David!

I have a lot of France-specific GA in my sim (FS9) and more is always welcome! I look forward to seeing these turn up in my flights.

Interesting, I'm finishing up a Tiger Moth presently. Might ask Charly if he wants to host it.

OK Charly, I'd only upload it here (it'll have something like 110 liveries, predominantly UK). Any other liveries that came along I'd post here and on Flightsim.com with a link back to here, sounds okay? FS9 only, since that is my platform and SDK.

There are a few Scandinavians...






Sorry to David for interrupting... :-[

Very nice. This is the current Tiger Moth counts in the countries I am covering so far. Tracking is an issue though from a flight plan perspective. Only found tracking for one Australian so far.

I had no idea Australia was top dog! Wow, 193! I hope they're all the same! :D

I've painted 110 aircraft so far, most of them UK. The UK CAA lists aircraft as being active, but which are in pieces in a shed somewhere, or on a lengthy rebuild after a crash, so they are not all in the air, and many won't fly for a few years. I've painted 2 German aircraft but there are others in Germany. D-EORX wears the UK registration largest, has an American registration under the tailplane, and D-EORX on the tail. Likewise, NX333XB has G-ASXB on the side and is based in the Seattle area. Meanwhile an American-reg Tiger Moth is operating in England, while 2 English TMs are in Hungary, and another, G-AJHS (painted by me) is in Holland, at Seppe.

The bad news is that the paints I have made, and the p/k, were created in Corel Paintshop Pro X8. Although I can save it as a PS file, all vector layers become raster, which makes the p/k a lot less user-friendly.

Tracking will be extremely difficult. Many Tigers don't have electrics at all. Tigers tend to have a little generator mounted among the wheel struts, or just aft of there, if they have something even as simple as a radio. I flew one years ago, G-ANTE, and that had a generator under the fuselage to power a simple radio mounted on a side panel using a simple metal bracket. I can't imagine many Tigers having anything more advanced and power hungry such as an ADS-B transmitter.

I've painted one from Oz, 2 from Canada (there is a version with a basic Canadian canopy and the re-angled gear on the DH82C), one from Ireland (AHI), one from NZ (BAH), one from Sweden (the bright one), and 2 of the 3 Swiss. I have working bases for all the British Tigers and have made myself some 52-week plans for them, but they use very minor airfields (about 1/3 are on private strips that FS9 doesn't know about), so apart from the aircraft there is also a need to consider either making new strips, or finding the nearest "normal" airport for it to fly from. My planner can keep the aircraft on very small airfields, althogh I have allowed the plans to visit a mid-tier airport very occasionally (for example Bristol in the UK, but not Birmingham).

It's actually quite a difficult thing to plan.
