Probably a question that only Mario himself can answer: Is a paintkit or a .psd source file for one of the Mercure's liveries around?
I'd like to splash some fantasy colors on the model for personal use. It's probably going to be a non-existing post-Air Inter charter user. Or maybe a what-if livery to boot. I heard Eastern kind of liked the Mercure, but had already committed to the DC-9-50. But what if they hadn't (the Mercure's capacity and performance would have been ideal for shuttle operations).
If Mario doesn't pop in here that often, I'll try other channels of communication. Int hat case, I'll let you guys know if and what and when regarding paintable textures.
P.S: The Mercure is excellent work! Wish I had the patience to pull a project like this off on my own. A benchmark for solo developers!
Messaged Mario on FSDev and got a super quick reply. He's on holidays at the moment, but is going to send the paintkit over once he comes back. And he has nothing against fantasy liveries, quite the contrary...

Generally speaking .... HJG doesn't release PSD files for anything it offers .... except in cases where our doing has arisen out of negotiated agreements as part of our right to host anything we don't compile ourselves .... and in such rare cases what's usually offered are "public version" PSD's (not as detailed as the official versions) only.
Not everyone can paint "well" .... of course .... and some authors of projects like to try'n preserve the quality of what they release by remaining in tight control of the like of their own PSD's. I'm not saying this's the case in this particular case though .... all I'm hinting at here is "it's Mario's decision" .... of course.
