D-EBED [Preview]

Post by SGTMAJOR » 03 Oct 2006, 08:59

Yes... I am still working on the Italian 91-C, however, due to some frustrating areas...(smile)... I needed a break tonight!

Anyway..... hope to have both knocked out this week.

I could use some help/advice with the German Registration Numbers. Are they also painted on the wing(s)??? I can't tell from the photo. Many Thanks.

A few minor cosmetic "fixes" and I hope to get this packaged up.

Hi Steve!

Wow, another beautiful repaint! I really like the elegant lines of the Lufthansa livery and you captured it perfectly. Can't wait to try it... great work! :)

As for your question, yes, there is the registration painted on the underside of the left wing. Please look here:

You can just make it out

Much more visible here, although it's another aircraft:

Well Thank You for your kind comments. I'm afraid I have a LONG way to go to catch up to your quality.

Having a bugger of a time with the 91-C. Finding a few spots with the paint kit that I'm having difficulties working around. No worries.... I'll figure it out soon enough.

Thank You for your help with the Registration number also. Now that I've look at my paint again.... I see a few more discrepancies I will need to adjust. (smile)

Take care my friend and once again thanks for the help.

Best wishes,
Steve

Upgrade!?!

WooHOO! I've not flown anything else than the Safir and the new Dornier 27 in the sim in ages! Doesn't look like anything will be getting a look in anytime soon. :D

Outstanding! Looking forward to seeing some panel shots of this new version!

I'm with Simon...between this and the Dornier Do 27, my jetliners have been gathering some dust lately. :)

Andrey...... Wonderful screenshot. (smile) Looks like it will be a great panel. I also notice that's the aircraft (D-EBED) I'm painting. (smile)

I finished the repaint an hour or so ago..... however, I'm waiting on a friend to send me the German Translation of "No Step" and then I'll package it up and get sent off.

I'll post some screenshots within the next couple of hours.... I am actually rather pleased with the outcome for my first "Official" repaint. If I keep practicing maybe someday I will be as good as Bill & Jure. Something to aspire to for sure. (smile)

Best wishes,
Steve

Hello all,

Well.... I think I'm finished with D-EBED finally. At least for now. As stated earlier... I would like to change the "No Step" into a German Translation... but if I don't have it by morning, I'll go ahead and package this thing and get it out of here. Although while taking the last screen shots I notice two minor flaws that I still need to correct.

Anyway..... hope you enjoy her as much as I have painting her.

Best wishes,
Steve

Hello Steve,

great paintiing!!!

NO STEP is in German NICHT BETRETEN,
but the question will be:
Are the German words on it in reality?

Greetings

Dieter,

Thank you so much for the translation. You know... I've been looking at this tonight preparing to get it packaged up.... and I'm almost ready to remove the "No Step" all together.

I actually could go either way as I haven't a clue if the wording is on the actual aircraft or not...... however, I'll sleep on it and maybe decide in the morning. (smile)

If anyone else would like to chime in.... I welcome all opinions. (smile)

Many Thanks Again!!

Best wishes,
Steve
