In the spirit of Mike's "Mystery Flight" thread I thought I would create one of my own. I needed something to do during the COVID outbreak,and this is what I decided to tackle. I will be posting screenshots of aircraft I am painting (or adapting other's repaints to the AI models - with permission) for this project, and since I am progressing alphabetically that will be the way these screen shots are posted as well. I am also coding new AI traffic files, but there's nothing to post of those.
Kudos to anyone who can figure out the project from the screen shots - hopefully that will get more likely as I progress.
Here are the A's I painted:
Alaska DC-4 (original livery by Tim Scharnhop):
Australian National DC-3:
Australian National DC-4:
Australian National DC-6:
Guinea Airways DC-3 (allied with ANA):
I'll post the rest as I complete each letter. Any guesses?

I am doing an AI project, to add to the AI traffic already available. What is the new addition? This is separate from the current AI traffic (although some of these aircraft can be also used in the 1957 traffic, a nice bonus).

BTW, now that the project has been revealed, I can give you some idea of its scope. I have a 1955 North American OAG (thus the year 1955 for the project), which means it doesn't have true worldwide coverage (only the major international airlines), and most schedules will come from there. If not included in there I will look at TimetableImages.com, and use any they have. But if it's not in either place, I will use the 1957 traffic, modified (if needed) to swap out aircraft not yet delivered in 1955, and adding some not present in 1957 - these are the planes I am painting and displaying in this thread.
In addition, if there really wasn't much change between 1955 and 1957 for a given airline's traffic, I will go ahead and use the 1957 schedule (to save me some work).
