My Repaints of Alphasim/Virtavia Aircraft
I've been painting for Alphasim since 2001.  Since then I've painted from scratch or have been asked to rework a total of 34 subjects -- 15 are still in the current catalog and 17 are available as freeware.  My experience has been that if I don't get around to painting any repaints that I'm interested in right away then I just won't have the opportunity before the next project is assigned and research begins.  Many of these were painted during the development of the original textures included in the online store downloads but were held back because of download package size concerns.  So they were released as freeware repaints.  Check them out for yourself: Alphasim and Virtavia.
