Beautiful! What a difference between the two pictures. I know nothing about building models on the computer or what rendering does but it looks really awesome!
Digital Dreams just gave me a quick course in improving my renders, so we'll see how that pans out on my new ones. As for the rest, just been experimenting with the software and settings, and trying things until I get an end result I'm happy with.

Wow! The rendered picture, with all of the photoshopped-in details looks amazing. Your Crusader models are absolutely superb.
Thanks! I'm getting better at making the markings, still trying to sharpen them up a bit though, and figure out how to make them match both the angle of the fuselage as well as the curve. Getting slowly better!
