Beat up UPS 747...

Recommended Posts

Painting the UPS 747 BCF for the PMDG 747 V3, adding extra wear and tear as this paint will depict a bird from 2012.

 

Extra wear around the L1 door.

The cargo door will get the treatment as well.  I put my photo tail on her as you can see (same as the 777F I painted).

It doesn't take too long for those new paint jobs to start looking "lived in". Nice work as always.

Thanks for the kind comments guys!

I like em worn in as well....I guess one of the reasons I make the extra effort to add these details.

It does take some time, but I feel its worth it, as it adds that little extra level of realism I crave when I'm panning around the exterior, hehe.

 

I got the right side textured....

Still alot to do, but its slowly getting there.  :smile:

Thanks guys!

Dan check your PM. :wink:

You may want to let Preston know to check his too as I noticed he doesn't frequent here much. (He may have something of interest there, hehe)


One more for the evening...of an angle and time of day I really enjoy.

I love the color of the sky and sun on how it reflects off the fuse...

I have the logo light on which seems to really brings out the tail texture.  :smile:

In this pic you can see I knocked the paint off most of the rivets on the windscreen frame, plus added that streak from the corner.  I also scratched off some paint on the corners to reveal the primer undercoat.  Of and of course the streaks on the cockpit egress door on top.

I also have the reg on the nose door...that is one of the last things I do before the final touchups and inspection. :wink:
