12 August 2017 - I found a repaint by "" of the Rafale M by Cyril Pioffet.  The textures are of the Swiss Air Force who decided not to select the Rafale for their next fighter.  The documentations states it is for FSX but it works in FS2004 as well.

5 August 2017 - I have found another pair of Mirage 2000 textures in the markings for the Republic of China Air Force.  The textures are painted by Chen Hsin-Hung for the FSX/P3D Mirage 2000C from Metal2Mesh and represent the 20th Anniversary scheme.

19 May 2017 - The website transfer has been completed.  There was a lot of behind-the-scenes work since the domian name was somehow controlled by a third entity who wasn't convinced I was the owner of the website.  But it is all back under my own control now.  If you have benefitted from this website please consider a small donation so I can keep it going.

? May 2017 - I am in the process of moving the website to a new host.  As soon as you (and I) can see this update message the process will have been completed.  At the current cost I could not afford to keep the website going with my own money even with the few donations (those of you who have donated -- Thank You Again!).  I will continue to update both locations until this announcement appears to signal the new location is live.

15 May 2017 - A new texture set was released by Steven Kreusser for the Mirage III/5/Nesher by Mark Harper.  The scheme represents a Mirage IIIOA in the "Fanta Can" scheme worn by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Aircraft Research and Development Unit (ARDU) in the 1980s.

10 April 2017 - There has been some renewed interest in the Rafale M by Bruno Mérelle (Thor's Hammer).  It was brought to my attention that there was a problem with my repaints when used with an external cockpit such as the FSX-Acceleration F-18.  After reviewing the problem I have updated my texture packages and cockpit merge instructions accordingly.  The new packages are intended for use with the v2.2 update installed.

5 April 2017 - Another installment of repaints by Tom Weiss for the Mirage 2000C from Metal2Mesh.  Both are for Armée de l'Air aircraft in the markings of EC 1/12 'Cambresis'.  One is assigned to SPA166 (Black Eagle) and the other (below) is assigned to SPA89 (Wasp).  Tom has also updated his previous Armée de l'Air Mirage 2000C repaints for EC 3/11 'Corse' and EC 1/2 'Cigognes' with improved normal and specular templates.
