Default NG models with backdrop

Hi!

Got some new backdrops to test and with some NG releases. Really impressed on their details and print quality. Would like to see some SAS B737 releases from NG before SAS fades out their B737 fleet in the near future.

I agree with that. Their qualtiy and details are outstanding. However, NG is not immune to mistakes either. The row of windows on their A 330´s looks definitely too high. The 787 (no pics here) nose and radar dome is incorrect as well. But awesome pictures!

I think the lighting looks perfect with the backdrop on the SAS A330 photo.

The Thai A330 backdrop is tough. Is there a way to create a silhouette effect for the model?

Great photos, as always!

Hi! Agree on this but no-one is perfect. But close.

Hi Harvey.

Will be a challenge and let's see what pops up (without using PhotoShop).

Nice photos and backdrops!

I agree re passenger windows, but the front door being crocked is even more noticeable! Look at the top and bottom line of the door! You are right though, none are perfect and I always say when they are mixed in with others these things just blend in...especially in 1:400.

They took lessons from JCW/Gemini A340-500s window line.
