Hang on, hang on!
So I was absent for a few weeks again, I come back and I find this...
What do you base this on? A few images? Give me some more credit then that please. Trust me that I have looked at the winglets (because that's what they are called on the A350, only on the A320 family they were called sharklets) in detail, from a number of angles. I will look at it again but I can assure you they are close to the real deal already.

Either way, thank you all for your support! I appreciate it.
 
That’s why I told you my eyes may be playing games and it’s better to ask more professionals o_O .

Plus , I only have seen the little « mishape » from just one perspective ( first screenshot ) . Seen from the other perspectives , the winglet is just perfect.

I guess I might be wrong :scratchch

They already are very close to reality anyways , and it was a great job !

The model looks great and I am more than excited to try it out once it comes out !



Though , what are you planning for the cockpit ? The real one looks amazing and I can guess it’s hard to shape all of the screens and buttons . Is it ?

Thank you again for the initiative F747FLY and for these 3 years of commitment !
 
I'm one of those who prefers a good outside model over a detailed cockpit. To say I'm excited by your model would be an understatement. Amazing work Frits.

I painted this over an A350 template. The perfect aircraft / airline match.

(If anyone is interested in very high quality, layered, .psd aircraft templates, you can get them from here. Requires registration though, free.)

Yep, as a regular 350 pilot in fsx look forward to this one. MUC is right. Outside. Can look perfect then we click in side and find 737, 321 or even crj panels, poor lighting controls and locations on the outside ( the 350 has a policy of see and be seen so lights up like a christmas tree, and looks good) , flaps control, and all the rest are so vital visually and operationally on this equipment. Ive just spent a few days correcting light points and effects on my download, now adding simple things like speedbrake warning next is looking at the flap setting indicators which are a321 and dont actually reflect the positions actually used. So please take the time you need to get the little things as close to right as you can , it will stand out and be appreaciated

screens and buttons
Screens and buttons are no problem at all, it's actually the more complicated shapes found around the windows that cause real headaches.
Either way, after an evening of work here is something for you guys to look at and hopefully approve of.

You mention again shapes around windows - look here as well https://www.cgtrader.com/tutorials/396-how-to-cut-holes-into-a-plane-with-blender

The panel images are starting to look good. The great challenge will be functionality - keep on digging you'll get there
 
Add some ambient occlusion, you pics will look much better. To do it without rendering, enable AO, set the type to multiply, then press n go to shading -> AO or something. Assuming youre in blender render ;)
