I think this would do the job.

It would look really silly if they were not.

Two mannequins that look a little less ugly than they did before. They appear as the engine starts, then drive it like it was stolen.

I have had a few hitches and pressing matter IRL.

Hopefully taken care of.

I am working on F-GMHB. That will fill a batch for which there are already flight-plans available.

Here is a picture of HB-KTG

Thanks Morten.

There are then way more than I imagined.

For now, I have fixed a few mapping issues. Reshaped the canopy and prop spinner to better depict a d version.
Also updating the paint-kit and retro updating my paints.

I have painted G-MACH as I had it on my old version.

A day or two then I can release a batch of examples.

Thank you Morten

Already very helpful.

I also found:

G-MACH Cheyne Motors

Your interest is appreciated and heartening.

There are fewer and fewer of these aircraft flying now. This then leads to fewer flight plans and less need to create new paints.

Having said that my models change over time as I try to overcome painting hurdles on this model and the PC-6. I have even gone so far as to plot the position of the mapping gizmo so that future versions fit onto the same position on the texture map.

This version of the SF.260 will however not take the old texture mapping, one or two of you might have examples. I am busy redoing those textures over time.

This leads me to a contentious topic; will the models be converted to other simulator formats?
Not by me. I make these models for my own use. I share my creations as they are.

As I do not have any other simulator software, I have no interest in converting them myself.
I will share source files with someone whom I can trust to preserve the models and the animations intact.
Allowing conversions seems to create the impression that the creation is now in the public domain.
I have had an unfortunate outcome already, in part due to misguided intentions and instructions on my part, but I found the result rather unsatisfactory.

In short, I understand that people get emotionally charged about this subject. The increasingly diverse platforms creates a need from increasingly diverse end users to have their platform supported. I get it, I also want new stuff in my sim. Unfortunately for myself the part naming and tagging in FSX and onwards is different to FS9. A lot of time must be spent on re-texturing and adding or removing animations. I really appreciate the efforts of those willing to make models available to all platforms.

That said, are there AI flight plans for these aircraft outside of Switzerland? I probably have not searched extensively enough.
What I am saying is that I will more likely paint a scheme on an example that I can see in my sim.

Take care.

These paints are for a model I have been tweaking to for some time.

Not sure there will be much interest.

Thank you, John. You are very kind.

I am heartened by the fact that the second batch was also downloaded.
It can't be too bad then.

I am still working on the H2 variants. Having to find examples that I am able to paint and have flight plans.

Having to create new airstrips for almost all flight plans also takes time.

Hope to share them soon.

New package v1.2 uploaded now to the Avsim library.

New paints included.

I have now modified the inside of the cabin to hide the bottom section of the wing.
The other Updates have already been completed.

The catch is, I will have rationing on electricity so recompiling the models and creating a package will be delayed.

I will upload an updated H4 Package as soon as I have it done.

Here is the first example of the updated model. The black colour hides the improved smoothing on the nose.
