Rick Pipers FSX HS 748...a few visual upgrades!

Post by Metalmaster » 15 Mar 2019, 19:53

I got carried away with this release, and was using Aharons thread, sorry Aharon ;)
So, after downloading this beautiful model, from Rikooo the other day, and after seeing those compressed textures,
I thought it would be ok to update the visuals a bit.
I would like to do the same as with the Jetstream, though in a much simpler way.
A fully retextured vertical tail, with more details, smudge effects, rivets ( all based in Rick Pipers original work !)
A new set of propeller effects too, darkened the interior a bit, cockpit mostly, in order to have a better and more accurate cockpit windows texture, since these are showing completely transparent in my Sim...anyways, I will show some pics here, as I go along, texturewise and repaint(wise)?!:)
I will let these speak for themselves.
Regards, rui

Thank you DaveG, most kind of you. ;)
Its a simple model to paint too, so it makes things easier too.
And the results are also great, visually speaking.
Speak later,

Excellent work Rui! I think I need to get the 748 back in my flying routine somehow. :)
