How does one make the glass transparent for the Lasse Lindh Bell 47J, 47J Float, and 207 Scout models in FSX? I've seen screenshots of it working but my windows are black. Any help would be much appreciated. Kind regards, Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,
This may or may not work, but when I had such problems with static models some time ago while testing the development of Static Aircraft Model Maker aka SAMM, I copied the glass texture from an aircraft which displayed correctly (in FSX), and renamed it to the name of the non-displayed glass texture from the aircraft with the problem.

This helped most of the time. If it is an aircraft which was modified from an FS9 model, it seems like it may be an oversight in converting the glass textures to an FSX compatible version.
Of course, make sure to backup all files before trying this method.

Cheers
Gman

I'd love to do that but the offending texture isn't called glass. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure which texture it is lol.

Hi jrbirdman81,
I too wasn't sure which file was the J's bubble, then I remembered the files I had from FS9, and found "windowparts" . I used to add a tint to the J's bubble, (very cool) with relative ease in FS9. Not so in FSX. I've tried GmanM's ideas and thought there may be a chance
at success. No such luck. I tried every possible "older" copter "glass" that I had (over 10 different models).
I'm not familiar with the conversion process that GmanM referred to.
I was the third member that worked with Lasse Lindh and Tom Heaverlo, back in 2004. Too bad Lasse burned himself out developing so many models, at once. I'd love to fix the pedestal panel and the windows/bubble, by converting those files to dds format, which is what many remade old models now have.
Maybe we can find someone who can help, possibly teach us ?
Take care.
Jeff
