Higher resolution? Disabling AA on built-in models, but not for imported ones?

Those are my guesses.

Ya I'm guessing high resolutions, maybe your doing something wrong when exporting the texture that's lowering the quality?

the game supports 256, and down sizing in paint.net blurs textures, maybe ill have a go a photo shop (down sizing high rez that is)

The default BR textures are not actually very detailed at all, due to the resolution being what it is of course, it's just a clever use of normal maps and making the surface look busy I think.  Specially seeing as, say the plating, is most just lines.

I think ill use the Nvida normal plugin as it seems to do a better job the hand drawing normal maps

Switch your down sampling method. Most make the image more blurry; you may need to draw textures for the size if you want them crisp.
