So far, so good. Access panels should have quite a bit of missing paint around the edges, especially the engine nacelles. Some more definite "hard" chips along the leading edge. Right now most of what you have looks old and smoothed by wear. Don't get rid of it but add some "fresher" chips along the leading edges. The crew entrance should have a lot of wear around the door edges and where the handle is.
Panel lines could stand a bit more definition and/or relief.
Colors and insignia look nicely worn.

Have you seen jarinks paint chip tutorial?

Just my observations and opinions. After all, you did ask. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This is coming along nicely. Keep us posted please.

You might make your panels and rivets just a little more defined. It a thin rope we walk on those two items. Paint chipping is a tuffy, I would say you've done well so far. Keep up the good work.

also panel line opacity increased to 40 from 30

too much, not enough..lost the plot entirely...you decide!

I like the panel lines now, I think you are spot on. I miss the rivets, though.

ok little tip here........ when you have saved the bmp reopen the bmp and decrease the brighteness by about 5 to start with then increase the contrast by about 10 to 20, dont worry if it looks to dark, then save that as the bmp and fly it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif then tweak those settings as required, it will make the plane more zingie if that makes sense........... give it a go you want lose anything http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Re: Blenheim-
Really looking nice now. That TT tip made the difference!

Re:Zero-
It looks good. Considering the paint is a little weathered you might try reducing the opacity a bit on the rising sun and squadron bands. Right now it seems too bright compared to the rest of the aircraft.
