The textures should look a bit more used. Works on just this model certainly a lot more real ;).
Thought the same first: Maybe I should add a bit dirt to the textures, some scratches, ... then I went to Bremerhaven. The Polar 5 nor looks used nor dirty, I could not believe it! Only the area behind the exhaust is dirty, the rest of the airplane is like a giant mirror, shiny and clinically clean.

You can compare it to real pictures (huge size!)

How can an old airplane look that good!?!? Seems like she never flew anywhere before!

OK, that's understandable.

One more thing to remember when making a/c paints is that its very easy to make the colors too 'hard' and thus give it an un-natural look in the sim... Add a little gray into the hard colors to 'dull' em out, just ever-so-slightly... through specularity and such, in the texture definitions, you can give them a richness and glossyness, but too hard colors almost look 'out of place'

its the one mistake that painters (and i have made the mistake, plenty of times, myself) make, is trying to make the colors, 'too' colorful...

dull em, just so slightly... not too hard, or it looks out of place, too new, and not like an actual object... with sides, shine, and reflection...

Edgeneer give a good advice, I don't understand too much about repaint, I would like, but yes, the colors, dull them as was said, keep the glossines and such, good work anyway :cool:

Requesting something like this.. a fresh conversion. This will become a Canadian registered aircraft. Returning to OSH after training in CYOW.
N36AP is the same number that was on the pre-conversion flying for MVA (Miami Valley Aviation)back in the day hauling freight. Is there still going to be a FS9 version also?
