Hey Tom,She is a beaut! Really looking good!I am no painter, but as far as I know, the panel lines are usually a separate layer (if you are not familiar with the concept of layers, Adobe has this to say: "Layers allow you to work on one element of an image without disturbing the others. Think of layers as sheets of acetate stacked one on top of the other. Where there is no image on a layer, you can see through to the layers below. You can change the composition of an image by changing the order and attributes of layers. In addition, special features such as adjustment layers, fill layers, and layer styles let you create sophisticated effects.") so that you can paint the whole plane in some layers, and have the panel lines, untouched, in a separate layer.Other than that, the plane really looks good. The cargo door is great, but unfortunatelly I am not familiar with the livery.You will get much more feedback if you post this shot in the screen shot forum here at Avsim, for it is there that all painters hang out. Just remember, as a rule, every post has to have at least one pic, so I'd post the above and ask the same questions.P.S. Really like the quotes man!
