Really love the model. Whilst I see what you were trying to go for with the sunset, I can't help feeling that it might look better in a daylight scene. You've got a really nice striking contrast between the red and the white paint and I think it's being lost in all the dark reflections. Have a look at the attached image - I think the red/white of the plane agains the blue/white of the sky backdrop looks great and the colours compliment each other well. I'd be interested to see a similar theme with your render. Just my two cents.

After unplugging myself from 3D Studio for a while I completely agree with you. The deep navy sunset color would have been best served by a predominantly white or gray/lower contrast paint scheme. I forgot how much a pain in the ass it is to light a red reflective object in a scene almost as a general rule.

I'm cooking on some companion air racers to go with this one and I think I'll stick with daylight scenes from here on out because frankly getting the lighting right for that sunset render was just a pain in the ass. For some reason I extended the background up over the top when the whole point was to get a tight zoomed-in shot.

I edited the image for my own use to be tight & chopped the excess background off the top and it might make a decent piece of wall art.

On to better scenery!
