Paintkit availability for 747-8s?

I'm finding it hard to motivate myself to finish this.  Couple glitches in texture mapping that are affecting my paint that will be tedious to fix.  Anyways, at some point hopefully soon I'll release it.  Nothing magnificent like these guys, and its completely fictional but I swore I'd push this Prime Air -8 when I got my hands on it!

 

 

Great work Brian!  I suspect these may be real someday the way Amazon is buying anything and everything. 

I'll be home late from work but will check it out if you sent it and let you know if i find anything glaring (doubt i will)

That would be great some dirty wings

Since it seems to be a popular feature I'll add them to the release

It looks weird when you don’t click on the picture.

Yeah, it puzzled me too... wondering if it was the aspect angle or maybe a new variant,  the 747-8SP

After much fiddling with the paint...Its at a point where I'm tired of tweaking it! LoL.

So here is the release photo:

The package will contain FOUR (count 'em 4) colors from which you have a choice to fly.  These are the colors I saw after reviewing many LH Cargo 747-200s.  The instructions to change it will be in the readme, but who reads those? LOL

If its not obvious based on the pic below...

To change the color of the WOW logo:
1. Navigate to the folder where your paint is installed
2. Rename the current pmdg_747x_fuselage3.dds to pmdg_747x_fuselage3-Green.dds
3. Pick the color you want to fly, Blue, Orange or Violet.
4. Rename the corresponding file to pmdg_747x_fuselage3.dds (just delete the -'color' in the filename)
5. when you reload the sim, your new color will be displayed.

She'll have a lot of brake dust on the rims as if she's been in service for a bit.

And YES....she'll have unkempt wings 🤣 (not terribly dirty as she is just too hard to paint dirty!)...with the proper "No Step" placards.

And finally she has a custom set of FCOMs and other manuals in the cockpit....derived from a pic I received of the real cockpit books (well from a 400 but they are authentic LH Manual covers).  I also threw in a custom Lufthansa pen (for when it randomly shows up in the cockpit, hehe)

Enjoy flying her guys!
