new 757 series

Recommended Posts

I have just been on your website and saw the screenshots for the 757. Immediately i saw a huge mistake in the model. The back.From the Rear cone section, as it slopes down gradually to meet the bottom of the fusealage it should straighten up level at around the 7th or 8th window, a gradual bend giving it enough room to rotate without tailstrikes. Yours on the other hand straightens up before being level with the door. Every aircraft has a level at the rear where the pilot climbs symetrical to the ground. i.e'shttp://www.airliners.net/open.file/1023478/M/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1023265/M/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1023266/M/Your 757 would have to have a 10ft high landing gear to match the level of the ground at takeoff. Posky's 747's have this also. although not as bad.Take a look at these 757 photo's. Count the windows and measure it where the slope stops......http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1023611/M/http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1021253/M/Another small point, A lot of designers who make 757's this does include the new PSS version, seem to think that the front nose section has a big lump or dip on top of the windows. It is really very similar to the 777. It gradually slopes down giving it a sleak look. If you took the windows away it would look like a smaller version of the T7. The nose cone again gradually slopes down, its not flat like many 757's have been developed. The only reason the 757 looks like its flatter at the bottom is because the nose is quite pointed, if the 757 was slightly larger it would lose that, but again the slope becomes flat at around the nose gear section. The PSS version flattens out before it is level with the last cockpit window. With these three faults, the top and bottom of the fusealage looks way to straight and flat. A point i must make is that i think the wings and engines are great. Unfortunately guys, im gonna wait for the IFDG 757 V2 to arrive. Take a peak at their website, the model looks brilliant. Although its freeware, i would take one of your flightdecks anyday.sorry to be so thorough. But i wanted to get my point across properly.Thanks;)
