Nice work guys! Keep it coming!
Peoples, nice render! I love the lighting and reflections! Just the shadowmaps need some more defenition to prevent the wheels from appearing as if they’re floating. I had the same problem with this render of above model (with new textures):
Darkening the shadows might help too. Does Cinema have a GI renderer?
Dave, I love your work. The F-16 is very nice, just the bumpmap is bothering me. I’ve worked on F-16’s myself, and the surface of the aircraft - with the bumpmap - doesnt look realistic. Also the ‘grooves’ on the wings aren’t there at all. The F-16 surface - though not entirely smooth - does not have any ‘grooves’. Panels fit well in general. A thing that should be added though is the big screws that are present in all detachable panels. Often they’re not in the same colour as the panel (either lighter, darker or unpainted) and show up pretty clearly, due to their size.
I’d say, remove the bumpmap altogether and put the map in the specular level channel instead.

Other than that, great work! I’m just being picky now, hehe
Keep it coming guys!
