Nice shot! Any chance we get to see the other liveries before release?

The beta team has been given permission to show the liveries off (encouraged to do so, actually). I'm sure you'll see more of them in the coming hours/days.

They skipped from the 4 to the 7. I'm sure someone will release a fictional at some point based on that, though.

Ah yes, I was confusing the 6 and 7. Legacy props are not my strong point of knowledge I'm afraid.

TAI (Transports Aériens Internationaux) before UTA used its DC6B on very long intercontinental routes and even logged the - then - longest flight on May 19th 1953 Los Angeles to Paris.

Thank you to the artist who will undertake this job!

Yeah, the DC 4 engine props of that era all look pretty similar, too, so it's really tough.

was hoping for the Red Bull Livery - but I guess someone will do that later :-)

 

Without hacking into things, the current version of X-Plane doesn't really have any way to make a proper metallic texture. Without this, the Red Bull livery looks pretty rough...

Well, at least two developers (Flight Factor on the 767 and a single developer named sgier on his Pilatus) have done quite convincing reflection effects using plugins (and I guess you had to program plugins anyway), which, when combined with a metal paint, look quite convincing... (Interestingly, the P-51 Mustang by Khamsin has also a metal paint which looks surprisingly good, even without reflections).

I'd love to see the Buffalo Airways livery (fictional I know, I'm talking about their DC-4 livery!)

KLM had 2 DC-6A aircraft (converted R6D-1)

328 43696 R6D-1 DC-6A  PH-TGA changed reg to PH-DFA -> converted to DC-6B in 1955

329 43697 R6D-1 DC-6A  PH-TGB changed reg to PH-DFB ->later the PH-MAM (see below)

I must say, it actually looks kinda cool,

 

but I've downloaded the British Eagle (G-APXZ) Livery from the site. it's listed under DC6A cargo liveries but the file links to a DC6B download which looks like this :)

BTW the British Eagle download under the DC-6A downloads the DC-6B livery.

 

EDIT : Just noticed above post says the same thing.

This bird just looks good, still can't decide whether to get XPX just for this one, or whether to ride it out and wait for the FSX version. Maybe some airport shopping will help me decide.
