Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks Thom.

Learning today that Delta is retiring all their triple sevens at the end of the year, I thought I should post a new 777 'mash attempt today.

It is a simple one this time.

How many more of our models are going to end up obsolete before things get back to "normal?"

Perusals 'preciated.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Both great mish-mashes Mike, those B787-10's are actually quite big aircraft and this image shows their scale very well. The Aer Lingus A330-300 is also looking just as good as it always does, and I have to say, your 'mashes of this model over the past few months actually persuaded me to pick-up the Gemini version of this aircraft. I already had the Phoenix equivalent, but the Gemini model is just a step above. I've found Phoenix's quality to not be as good as it once was in recent months.

Edit: Wonderful 'mash of the Delta B777-200/LR! What a shame that these are going to be retiring so early in their life. Just like the real airlines, I'm sure a bunch of my models will be heading to the fictional scrapyard once the industry starts to get itself back on track.

Thanks for sharing!

- Cal.

I'll really miss Delta B777s in the skies, my friend!

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Another nice one Mike. Perhaps we'll see this model in a graveyard 'mash once these birds retire later this year...

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Great offset on the whitebalance Mike, makes the United new livery look almost bearable!

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks Guys.

I didn't mention, with the above post, that I swapped the engine rim from the original. Of course, I imagine everybody took note of it. These models look great at a normal viewing distance, but up close particularly at a low angle like that 'mash, bad engine rim paint is just too distracting to pull off a decent 'mash attempt.

Anyway, here are two additions to the fleet. While the fleet has a Lufthansa B747-8i and an A321, both have celebratory liveries that no longer could work with a mish-mash. Out of date enough to seem a bit odd, but not yet old enough to be a "classic." Besides, these are both with Lufthansa's new livery and the 321 is a NEO. Both are from Gemini.

A321 NEO D-AIEA.

And a simple taxi 'mash of 47-8 D-ABYC.

Your perusals are always welcome.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

A very sleek pair of new additions Mike and some great 'mashes for their respective debuts! I know some aren't fond of the new Lufthansa livery, but I actually rather like it. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my own B747-8 in the new livery from this months releases - it looks like Gemini have done a great job with this model!

Nice climb-out 'mashes with the new arrivals Mike, that A321NEO looks great from this angle!

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Nice Lufthansa models Mike, the angle on the A321neo is surely an interesting one! Well done!

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks Mates.

The A321 background image was from an Airbus demo flight of the 321 NEO. Photos of demo flights often yield different angles than normal ops shots do and ain't that grand!

The below attempt required some serious focus merge work in Affinity Photo.

A good telephoto plane spotting shot requires some work in 1:400 macro to pull off something close to believable. Hope everyone likes it.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Very cool angle on that B747-8 Mike! I'm sure a lot of work went into making this one look right, but the results are excellent - great job!
