Got a Tiger by the tail!

Recommended Posts

OK....I know....another silly pun, but it does fit this screenshot. :LMAO:

There is still a lot of work before I even release to the check airmen...its the metal....very hard to get just right!   Just thought I'd throw a quick preview up.  Still working on real life stuff too, so there's that.

And it has my favorite tail with the "T" on it versus the angled FLYING TIGERS.  Splendid work Steve!!

 

Can't wait to dirty up that bare metal with some heavy hauling!!  (P.S....the big Titan is at FL360 on her way to Fairbanks now!)

This looks just freaking awesome Steve! The bare metal looks rocks, love how you omitted the composite areas of it too.

I wish you are painting POSKY or SKyspirit 2011 777-200LRF cargo planes :)

 

Great Flying Tiger livery!!

Thanks guys!

I just now have the metal looking decent...ready for the check airmen.  Expect an email shortly.

Still have work to do on her but she was ready for a few teaser shots.  :wink:

Remember that Survivor song from the early 80's "EYE OF THE FLYING TIGER" :lol:

Ok...now you got that song ringing in my head!  Thanks a lot!  :LMAO:

 

If your shots weren't so stunning I'd be mad at you, LoL.

 

She is a good lookin' bird...I have always liked metal birds.  Now that I have a good metal texture, we'll see what other metal monsters I can come up with. :)

Thank you once again Xudeva!  This plane would not be possible without the conversion of your great 767 textures!

Thanks for all the comments guys!

 

Aharon, do you have the PMDG 777?

 

Robert, same question to you.

 

Al, Imran, check your email. :wink: 

 

Will, I don't know if we ever got your email straightened out...was it because it was a large file?  do you have an email you're sure can handle a 15mb file?

Thanks Tim!  I know if you painted the DC-2 project I saw in your link, how hard it is to get metal looking right in flightsim.  Xudeva did a great job, and I just took his metal and refined it and remapped it to our beloved PMDG 777. :)

Which by the way I can't recall if you have her...if so, send me an email and you can join the check airman program and get a pre-release copy.

She's actually ready for release, I just need to find time to do it...I have longed for someone who could be a " flightsim packager" and I could just send the file to and they get it ready with all the preview pics and upload procedures (for those who've never uploaded...its a process...necessary...but a process, especially if you're like me and likes to give the potential downloader many pics to decide if the quality of the paint is worthwhile to download.)

Awesome Imran...have fun flying her....take some pics of her in transit.
