Absolutely beautiful Darryl. Is this EGCC-EGLL? That livery looks so good on the 320.

 

I can't wait for the FSL A320 and I'm sure this will be one of my "go-to" flights when it is released and I am learning the ropes!

@ Darryl ,

 

Nice to see someone promoting my work , and glad you like it .

Since the release of the Extended have added a few paints and converted my original paints for the AirbusX to work with the new version . Nowhere near the amount of paints as Holgi but still a lot of work !

Will shortly be uploading an A320 in British Calendonian livery which was delivered ( but never flew in B Cal colours ) in 1988 ( c/n 006 ) and the same aircraft in BA Landor livery after they merged with BA .

I thought that Holgi has already made a Virgin America paint and he normally does " clean " & " dirty " versions as standard . Although Holgi has some 400+ repaints ( I have nowhere near as many so far ) it would mean searching either the Aerosoft site or Holgi's for it .

Just had a look , here are two paints for the AirbusX

I meant the sharklet version, every repaint is extremely dirty. Something to do with the paint-kit?

The paint is of a "dirty bird", I'm looking for a much cleaner version. i understand if it can't be repainted due to the limitations of the paint-kit.

Holgi usually makes a clean and dirty version of the Airbus Extended but the sharklet version comes in the "dirt only" version. These aircraft should be clean since they are brand-new.

Looking furher at Holgi's VA paint , it looks like he " forgot " a white layer of paint as the cream colour is basically the background colour in the paintkit and any photo's on the net are showing a nearly pure white paintscheme . Also cannot find the registration used in the VA fleet . I can only assume that the paint was made before the " sharklets " were oficially added or retro-fitted as I have only found one registration that actually has them .

There may be more aircraft that have the " sharklets " but having no luck in finding any ( high resolution photo's ) at the moment .

Preview of a " Work in Progress " of a Virgin America with sharklets . Not happy with it yet and my first " sharklet " paint . Just spent some hours painting the sharklets only to discover that they changed the mapping in the final pain(t)kit . So here's N361VA " jersey girl " . Click on the image to preview .

Loving it...stunning repaint John, I'm sure it will be heavily down-loaded!

Noticing some weird issus with the NEO paintkit with ther same colour showing differently in each fuselage section . Most pronounced in the aft section seen above .

Corrected the " stars " in the sharklets ( brought them in line ) although the topmost star is only a few pixels , so isn't even star shaped . Not happy with the Virgin America text either ( haven't found a decent example as eps or vector ) . Also need to add white edge to tailfin .

I'll keep it simple and just upload to Aerosoft as it seems to confuse some people as to where you can find repaints , although AVSIM isnt exactly unknown in the flightsim world !
