So I prefer the white rather than the chrome so I've updated my connie repaint...

Yeah I think the white just pops. I may add some more weathering but yeah thinking this may stay. 

 

Thanks for your comments :)

Yeah, the white looks much better and doesn't reflect the sky as much which in some shots made it look all blue. Nice work Jim.:cool:

OK so I have now added the blue prop tips spinning effect when engines are running - I have also added a further weathering to the fuselage....

I've been trying to figure out what it is about the Connie that I dislike. It's not the repaint, which is great Jim.

its that huge front gear. Now I know thanks to Wayne for making it clear.

The wheels on this thing are just shocking! I hate them! But when it is up in the air, it looks stupidly good. Upgly ducking on the ground, stunning in the air at 20k feet :)

I agree with Matt, the more I look at it the more I think it needs weathering, oil stains etc.......still great work though...I used to paint the trucks in ETS2 but never got round to trying the AC's yet....don't really have time.....

I agree too but likewise having the time is an issue at the moment. I also need to find some good brushes too.

Still a work in progress but it will get there in time :)

I've actually wiped this version now lol but I've taken some ideas from it and another better version will be on it's way. 

 

I like the 'faded' glare shield coming from the nose so I'm keeping that and making it better. 

I'm not sure I like as much dirt as this one ao I'm thinking of toning that down. 

I used a brown colour but I'm not sure if it would be better to use a grey like a dried water effect than dirt? 

 

Lot's to think about :)

Long video Jim so admit I only scanned bits and pieces but what I saw was nicely done, :thum: cool looking approach at night topped off with a good landing.:)

 

Saved it in my cue for when I have more time.:D

Yeah I completely understand if people choose to pan through the video - I do exactly the same all the time. I just about have time to stream so editing videos is just not a go - sorry. 

 

Thanks for watching and feedback - maybe next time I'll get into innsbruck with correct approach lol.

 

Cheers

Jim

yeah, i did the same. I watched a fair bit of your cockpit pretakeoff setup...then skipped around to the good stuff. The paint looks terrific in flight, and it's a gorgeous bird in and out.
