Many of the textures have been customised - to mention a few:
Night textures, added tail logo lights on horizontal stabilizers which illuminate the tail, modified metal texture on the engines to appear as natural as possible with very little alpha channel usage. Grey under belly on certain liveries which was a little tricky to shape to match the way the textures distort so low down on the model. As with my 747-400 paints there custom made semi transparent fan textures, and subtle shadows added in key areas as well as to the lower wing-root/belly to enhance the appearance of the vents.
Comments always welcome.
All the best,
