Check out this Detail on Brian's Delta 747 paint!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been working with Brian T and showing him some of my painting methods to add detail to liveries.

As you'll see in these shots, he's a good study, picked it up quickly, and even bought Paint Shop to match my setup even though he's a PSD'er. :laugh:  After he got bored with my preferred painting app, he applied his new skills back over to PSD and in the process, showed me enough of the app to convince me to work in it as well.  I can tell you I'm slowly acclimating to it, but its a challenge for this old brain. LOL

So without further ado'...here is his excellent PMDG 747 in Delta livery.

Here she is taxiing into the Delta maint. facility for some...uhhh...maintenance (I know she'd be towed in the real world and this ramp with be littered with planes (and the hangar doors open), but this is flightsim. :)  A tiny AA 737 is foolishly taxiing too close to all that potential thrust.

Good closeup of the dirt detail Brian put into her.

Moving past the icon "Fly Delta Jets" sign at KATL.

In her spot for the maint.  Other Delta smaller sisters getting ready for departure. (not that a 777 could ever be considered small, hehe)  Really wishing the elevations were accurate here as the maint ramp is way below the taxi and runways in real life.

The nose, showing off some of the great detail around the L1 and L2 doors, and the upper pax door, streak on the cockpit window corner, etc.  Just look at the detail, too much to list all the things he's done.

The right side, noting the cargo door dirt and grime..looks great IMO!

Wheel rims with brake dust and grime!

Here is the right side near the back...Brian did a lot of work here!

And he did exceptional work on the APU area (always dirty) and the subtle dirt on the vertical stab.

Here is a link to all his work....check it out and if you fly the PMDG 747 you need to have this Delta repaint!

Thanks HL.

No livery will ever top Delta's widget, but I'd rate this 2nd of the liveries Delta's had over the decades.

Brian put some serious work into this paint.  Wait till you see others he's working on!

Hope you enjoy Brian's and my paints.  I'm about to add a few more to my link. :wink:
