Hi Skyop!

Sorry, that I`m bothering you again, but there`s a problem with the BA livery.
On the left side, it`s fine.

But on the right side...

One more thing. Can anybody tell me how long will Flightgear last without crashing.
I made these photos while flying from EGLL to LOWI and after just 45 minutes, it crashed. :evil:

yup it was. Seeing it and a bunch of other 757's reminded me about one of my old complaints about the model that hasn't been fixed. The nose does not look accurate at all.

Cheers

Can you give me a rundown of what exactly needs to be fixed? The nose seems fine to me. Compare it to this image.

The BA logo on the right side is missing.

Sorry for the mistake, but now about that nose.

I agree with Simba. It does look a bit inaccurate.
Here`s a better comparision.

But it's not too bad...

Looking at this; it looks pretty good. But keep in mind that the real 757 here is in the air so the camera angle is different.

Hello, skyop!

I think I just have to "round up " the top of the glass. Only that

The images that wingtipped posted above show it pretty well. I am on vacation right now and don't really have time to spend much time on the comp. If you haven't fixed it by the time I am back I will help you.

Cheers :D

Can anybody post an image of the front of the nose?

I will search an image as close as possible, so we could see, where it is inaccurate.

Yes, that is what I need, but I also need an image from FG, so I could compare the two and see what needs to be fixed.
I can`t make it myself at the moment, because I`m not home right now.

So, here`s the image in FG.
Image
I made it at a wrong angle. It should have been zoomed back a bit. This made searching for a match very difficult, and unfortunately, I didn`t find a perfect photo.
This is the image, that I used to compare them. It`s the closest, that I found.
Image
From the front, they are quite the same. The only thing, that I can see, is that the nose shuld be a bit more "flat" from the bottom.
