I want your feedback on whether i should let it clean like this or add more dirts? since she's fairly new in real life, I don't wanna put too much dirt on it..

lol Iberia was a cool change with all the dirt but would look ugly on Lufthansa... Iberia was bred for Dirt: http://images2.jetphotos.net/img/2/7/4/ ... 946647.jpg but Luftys are nice and squaky cleen

Hm. Engines should be same gray as fuse and on the wing fence... there is actually a transition between Grey and White on the inboard http://images3.jetphotos.net/img/2/4/1/ ... 238914.jpg

ok so I redid the tail colours a lil, made the logo a bit more orange yellowish, the tail highlights more blue than white, and changed the engines a lil bit.

So far so good

The tail's gloss could be toned down, but otherwise it's spot on. Also take a look at the wingtip fences. Part of it should be the same shade of gray as on the fuselage.

Wow I hadn't noticed it til now, that there's a bit grey on the wingtips. I thought it's all white :D


At Nick: You're so fast with your repaints and they're so amazing. Thanks again for those beautiful liveries.

I had not noticed earlier until about a year or two ago. I've flown Lufthansa only a couple of times in the past couple of years, but 2/3 of my flights were on their A330/A340s.

I love when painters put extra detail into the engines, especially the insides of them as if looking from the cabin. Adds worlds to any paint, imo; the fin shadow, the dirt and rough spots in between the seams - only gripe is rather than having the outer wing reflected onto the inner engines, the fuselage should be. I think the antenna just aft of the wingroot on the bottom of the fuselage is supposed to be red, but other than that the paint looks outstanding. Nice work.

Also - about what time of day/season/location are you in some of your shots? (Particularly the very very first one of the thread with only the tail painted) - absolutely love the lighting on that one.

thanks guys!

@ kyle: It's not the outer wing that's reflected, it's the inner wing and the fuselage reflection is there but with the alpha channel you can't really see it. But it's there, I created the fuselage/inner wing reflections ;)
As for the antenna, yea I just noticed that the tip of it is red.. Well. I should've been more observant to lil details like this, it's on avsim already :S
