Looks good, Richard. I painted the Ethiopian 200LR and Freighter. The CS paint kit takes some time to become familiar. BTW, has anyone produced non-symmetrical wing textures that look real?

Even though the shot was at dusk I will try to come close to real color and tone down reflection as you can see this color is not highly reflective - just did a quick photoshop adjustment on image shown above but real textures will need some tweaking as it is to dark - hence WIP

As it is a gloss paint on the real aircraft, the reflection level you currently have looks about right.

The silver AA uses is not particularly flashy though.

The silver color that Spirit uses would have looked much better and would have looked more like the legacy bare metal.

So I can take poison on that CS finally did a good job with the V1.4 release? I see more and more praising words for their aircraft. 9,99 sale I will buy their L1011 and the 777-200/300 if it's that good! I like the Electronic Flight Bag by the way. Can I use my navigraph charts easily with that feature?

 

Nice livery by the way!

 

 

Regards,

 

Peter

Hey Rich, here's some pics I took at LAX Friday before last that show the shine level on the new AA paint.

Hope this helps you to some degree and sorry for the crap quality of the pics.. of course I go and get a new galaxy s5 THIS week with the 16mb cam AFTER the trip...

I'll see if I can clean these up after work if you want.

Richard,

               The paint that they use on the new American livery has a different look depending on whether the sun is shining or not. If the sun is shining it almost has a metal flake pearlescence to it. If it's cloudy, it almost looks like a primer grey. It's much better looking when the sun is shining.
