Top left corner, too large or misplaced?

 

Compared to the real world photos it looks pretty dang close.  I think it's just the contrast between the yellow on the vertical stabilizer and the red of the flag that makes it look a little out of place, but if you compare the pics to the livery, it looks pretty spot on to me.

Compared to placement to me it looks pretty dang close if not there. As is seen on the real one, the top left goes along that edge.

I agree with Steven, the contrast makes it look a little misplaced in that shot. Then again, this screenshot was just a quick response to keep the thread watered. As we all know WIP threads are subject to change.

But in this case there is nothing "broken" so why fix it? Keep on with the important things, re-painters can deal with the other "stuff" :)

 

Slainte,

Hi X-Aviation,

 

I flew the real plane today and it was really nice! I´m looking forward to the XP plane! Any news about the schedule?

 

Thx Nils

I'm glad I just noticed this thread. Didn't know about the progress of this Archer. Will be looking forward to it.

Its not dead! Just dormant.

Real work and family responsibilities consumed my Archer and 152 time for now! Trust me these two planes are nagging at my sanity!

Hopefully we will have some news soon! Hang in there!

Clearly, you have your priorities in order.  Do what you need to do.

 

Given your work so far, the wait will be worth it.  :)

There is a bit more to the story, Jason is being very professional.  Some technology from the 737 is desired to make its way into these Four Forces projects.  The problem is between the 737 work, Laminar crunch time on some end of year work, finding time to work with Four Forces has been difficult so I bear quite a bit of the blame here.   As always, we feel the quality of the work is worth waiting for, at least from our perspective... but we share in the frustration that we do not have more hours in the day as we have to maintain other jobs to pay bills while the x-plane market is still relatively small.

No progress as for now. My live with X-Plane was reprioritized so many of my projects are "to be determined". Once the dust settles, I could be back. Hopefully the other guys will be willing to get the Archer out the door also.
