Very nice indeed but some corrections would be more perfect!
As you said already the Tail could be better! Well a lot better if you ask me but that isnt a big problem to Fix!
The rest seems to be fine if it is the old 727 livery btw :D

Great plane Pascal!
If you are using Paint Shop Pro to paint, I can give you one tip that will make the fuse appear to be a more natural white (darker) than the blank white that comes in the paintkit.
What you have to do is create a layer that is a gradient that ranges from darker at the bottom to lighter as it goes up.
Look at the difference between these 2 pics:
This is my Navy C9 master with the shading layer turned off.
Here is the shading layer turned on. It makes the fuse have that cylindricial look that makes a 2d image seem 3d.
Then of course you just add another layer and slap on the dirt! :)
I'm working on a tutorial that will help painters just starting out (like I was a month ago...but with some PSP skills already).
Please do a search in the internet for Paint Shop Pro Layers, Gradient fills, and see if you can find tips that others have already posted. I would love to answer every question about painting that comes up here, but we all know that it would be impossible...but I'll help out when I can.
