Virgin Atlantic Little Red

Post by a380-800 »

Hello guys/girls,

This forum doesn't seem to be as busy as it used to be, but I hope someone will find this of interest. Here I have started on a Virgin Atlantic Little Red A320 which will be used on domestic routes around the UK. I hope you like the WIP!

Unfortunately not :(
I didn't have an HD Paintkit available and didn't know where to access one.

Sorry to disappoint! :/

Sorry about the quality of this paint. It would have been lovely in HD but I didn't have access to a HD paintkit at the time :@
Still, I hope this is okay?

I remember that I tried FS 9 textures in FSX. It didn't work for me..

Hey looks nice but the name on the right hand side looks a bit too forward, its perfect on the left hand side:


The red looks a little bright too:

Any ideas when this will be released? Looks superb otherwise :)

I'm not sure whether I am going to release it as there is already one on avsim which is a hell of a lot better than mine :/

I've tried both and EI-DEO which is available on avsim is missing a lot of detail whilst EI-EZV (also on avsim) is seriously too heavy on the FPS (textures used) and seems to give the impression its been operating for years going by the level of dirt! your's is perfect and definitely needed on avsim! :)

Okay so I've made a few edits to the livery after the aircraft began flights in the real world. I got a better image for use and could tune the colours as well as possible, the red has been enlightened a little to make it more realistic and the errors which kavs8 saw have been corrected.

So here she is, the final previews before I upload her to avsim... Anyone find any more errors?

Don't take this one seriously ;) Just giving the passenger's the ride of their lives...
