Perhaps just for me, your img link doesnt work.
That's odd. For the pictures, i'm using Dropbox, not postimage or something like that. Should I move my images to there?

Check that you've got the IMG tags correct.

A blank Avia S-199. I hope it's actually showing on other people's screens

(did not show on some of my last posts.)

The Douglas DC-3 PH-TCB from the KLM in the colour scheme from the 1950's. The plane was scrapped and a other DC-3 was painted in the colours of the PH-TCB to put it in the Aviodrome, a aviation museum on the airfield of Lelystad (the Netherlands).

@LtMaverick114
Perhaps You'll be interested to know that there's already a better, more-up-to-date version of DC-3/C-47 around (including a number of Dutch paint schemes):

@Thesketchydude13
First of all I suggest You start using img tags, so it will be possible to see Your works without clicking the external link.
Also, perhaps You might consider it useful to look at CraigH excellent (even though showing at the moment as resized) renditions of B-36 and find some inspiration regarding the representation of certain elements (like shape of the wing and engine nacelles, for example). ;)

Eswube, I used the colour scheme of a DC-3 in a museum. It has brighter colours then the ones drawn. The DC-3 also has a slightly different paint scheme then the one drawn.

Hey guys, this is my first aircraft in FD, so I'd very much appreciate your input and feedback.

EDIT: Edited with Hood's suggestions.
Separated blank and coloured aircraft into two templates, outlined ailerons in black, cut and pasted letters for a better look, added 1px depth to the lighting on top and after checking available pictures again, reduced propeller blade with. They did look pretty long!

I think its a really good effort for a first FD scale aircraft drawing.

I would separate the the blank and coloured aircraft into two seperate templates.
The font of the labels should be Arial size 8. Your current font is a bit blotchy.

The aircraft themselves look good and are well drawn. Two things that might improve the drawings is to increase the top shading by 1x pixel depth and maybe outlining the ailerons in black.
Maybe also check the propeller size they look quite big but they might actually be that big!
