It looks great! 

Will this be a plugin that could add reflections to any plane? or is it something that has to built into a plane from scratch?

According to Denis (the developer)  "Some update on the plugin - it is very easy to use now with any plane, a few minutes and it is possible to make default Cirrus look like that (livery Aero Union available in download section):"

Making that plugin universal - being able to use it on any aircraft - will be absolutely amazing. I know the XP folks have shown off that fancy new lighting and reflection system coming for XP11, but this will definitely help to keep us all happy until then!

Would be interesting to see how it's done / source code as he seems to have a different approach now with materials.

Does anyone know if this would work with scenery objects as well?

On this helicopter video, one can see that it does not work perfectly. At 0:13 to 0:16 you can see that the main fuselage and the tail look like separate objects (probably because they are) and the reflection is not consistent there. I guess aircraft developers will need to adjust their models to make best use of that plugin.

 

Still, a great work. I wonder when this will be available. Does he plan to sell this to developers or to users?

ddenn said it might be possible but he is concentrating on aircrafts right now. He doesn´t think that scenery objects would gain so much from this plug-in.
