    You used to be able to buy CS.. Now you rent it. I got CS6 when you could buy it outright. I saved up for it. $1,000.00. Finally had the funds and got it. So glad I did. love that program.

    You can download it for 2 week trial and try it out, then get the monthly program. See if that works for you.. I am sure you can turn it off (turn off monthly payments) when you cant afford it or you arent using it.

    Bill, I don't think that renting or investing a large amount of money is a good idea when you've got no experience with graphics programs whatsoever and don't want to use it for commercial, day to day purposes in the first place.

    I think I'm going to stay with the system I'm well use to. I'll just wait for the Trislander to ne released, even in beta format then I can get creating

    I consider MS Paint the worst tool for repaining, but whatever floats your boat...

    GIMP is a great freeware graphics tool, I've been using it for years & once you have mastered the basics you can do wonderful paints with it, there are lot's of online tutorials available.

    If you have an Adobe ID, Photoshop CS2 is easily found on Adobe's site. Read the T&Cs.

    Getting back into Joey after doing conversions of Erick Cantu's older models these past 2 weeks. The current Joey doesn't have rudder pedals/toebreaks, so that is my current task and it is no easy feat as images are really hard to come by. Thankfully I have contacts that operated the real bird and I work off what is sent to me. This represents at least 1 1/2-2 hours of work and the right side pedals haven't been cloned just yet until I get the left side done and mapped. Next up is the pedal itself and shouldn't be too hard to model. More to follow....

    Pedal modeling almost complete. Need to clone the left foot pedals for the right foot, model some missing parts, map all parts, then clone the left pedal/mechanism assembly for the copilot side, animate....the life of a 3D modeler. At least now Joey will have his pedals ;)

    Nice work on your Trilander.
    I don't know if you already do this, but with cloned parts that are going to use the same texture & UVW mapping coordinates, I find it easier to map the part before cloning, resulting in less work & also if you need to alter the mesh you either add an edit mesh modifier or collapse the stack & retain the UVW mapping coordinates.

    Copy/paste or move both folders into your FSX/Simobjects/Airplanes folder
