I decided to include this part to allow you to become acquainted with the repaint kit we will be using. A repaint kit by my personal definition is one that is a psd and includes layers which aid in creating repaints. However, this repaint kit consists of "flattened" bmp images that contain nothing other than the image itself. Generally you can manage to still use the repaint kit effectively (which we will do) and this also provides good experience with non-layered paint kits.
I welcome you to the POSKY 757-200 paint kit, the one we will be using.
This is the fuselage and tail texture sheets from the folder named "DDIID", these will be the ones you are mainly working with. As you can see only one side of the fuselage and tail is displayed here. The top section of the texture sheet is the frontal section of the fuselage, the cockpit being on the left hand side. The second portion down is mid section and the last piece is the rear section with the APU being the grey/black rectangle. As well as that is obviously the tail being shown on the right.
This appears at first glance to be a duplicate of the image above, however what this contains is the other side of the fuselage and tail. In all intents and purposes it is, apart from the addition of a cargo bay door which is on the top part of the image. All images and text will need to be mirrored on this texture sheet in order to be displayed the correct way round.
This is the texture sheet that holds the engines and their pylons. We are using this particular bmp as the engines on the aircraft we are painting are Rolls Royce. As you can see, we have 4 sets of engine sections. These are left and right side for each engine, the pylons are at the bottom left of the image and the nacelles are in between the engine sections.
I will only show one out of the 4 wing texture sheets as they are more or less the same. We will be using the "Gray" set as these are appropriate to our paint scheme.
In this image you can see several parts. In the center are the 2 main parts of the wing, the under and over side (the lower of the 2 being the over side). Under the over side of the wing are the outside portions of the leading edge slats (flaps) and under that at the bottom is one of the guide rails for the flaps. In between the 2 wing segments are the leading edges which extend with the flaps. At the top of the image you can see some more guide rails, the inner side of the slats, a light and some small nondescript pieces of mapping.
As we progress through this walkthrough I will state what parts are mapped to where and what parts need painting, we're almost ready to begin.
