Really looking forward to this one Jim, when it's ready I'll be ready!
I'll be getting the A2A 182T soon and when I do I'll do a special repaint for a 182T that will be calling this place home!
Jim, if you have anything in mind let me know, there's no rush.
The GTX9xx series is out so I would recommend this:
P3Dv2 is much more video card dependent than FSX so to get a good experience you need more than just a DX11 capable card. I get decent performance from a GTX680 2GB card and...
This is taken right out of the P3Dv2 SDK Learning Center:
Not sure if it's a good idea to combine veg and ground polygons in the same material.
Here's the associated images from the SDK Learning Center
Looks to me like those polygons are inverted. I would try selecting those poly's and hit flip.

Jim - Thanks for your comments on the paint job, appreciated. Thanks for sharing your flight experience, I have some flying time but nothing since the early 90's. Hoping to change that soon though. I'll be trying those routes you mentioned, any reason to fly over that scenery is good.
@JRobinson - Yeah, that's me and 4667L is mine, glad you like it definitely one of my favorites. Flew my latest repaint N13273 out of Bonners this morning. Very nice area you inhabit Jim, ever do any real flying around there? I can only imagine that the views are spectacular.
Great work as usual Jim. I also grew up in FL, specifically the Tampa Bay area and will be donating for this.
BTW, just picked up Bonners Ferry and will be doing my first flight out of there today. Looks amazing!

Step one, close 3ds max and then remove any files you copied into the 3ds max sub folders.
