Thanks !

toned down the reflections and added a bit of fuselage weathering on top of the diffuse engine exhaust

Nice, is this a template for various repaints like your D repaints?

Do you have any ideas about which liveries you are going to produce Tom?

cheers,
Lewis

same thing - a clean (Air Show) and a weathered template

I have 4 - a RAF, two USAF and a civilian planned.

I am open to suggestions :D

Oh sounds good, I guess the civilian isn't clean metal?

Dave I'm not sure what you mean, looks like realistic shine mixed with discoloration you would expect when looking through glass and in particular an aircraft canopy, unlike the default effect of total transparency bearing no resemblance to anything in the real world.

I appreciate you don't ever see glass as totally transparent.. as if it's not there but the glass as shown in shot 4 doesn't look right either. It's only a step or so away from being white. I'm not talking about the reflection of the sun on it but the overall colour of the glass either side of the reflection. It looks lit to me!

I appreciate you're all convinced how realistic it looks. In the other shots Tom posted, I think it looks great too but in certain lights.. it takes on a life of it's own. I don't want to hijack Tom's thread but here's an example of a model who's glass shows the sun and other reflections as yours but doesn't 'glow'..

I'm not saying it's glass is better than that on the P51H (or others from your stable) but it's certainly less resilient to outside forces.

Sorry Tom.. I'll be sure to look out for your repaints :wink:
EDIT: No more glass.. I promise.
