I will try to find more pictures of these aircraft,side view is not enough to do the art for them you also need the top or plan view for it to show up in game me thinks,or at least that is what I was told by hellfirejet.

What Kirk says is true, and also you must take the top view and make it into an alpha, which is something I was never able to do successfully. Here is a very basic explanation on what needs to be done: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=771853&mpage=1&key=top%2Calpha&#771853
Hope this helps!

Actually the top alpha is the easiest part for me.

You simply need to select the plane top, use you paint bucket set to 'None' on match mode and fill it solid white. Invert the selection and fill the outer part solid black.

The key is that you may have to use a single pixel eraser brush to remove the background from around the color plane top, then you can easily select with a magic wand set to opacity.

This is how it works in WiTP, and I'm sure WPO uses a similar system.
