As developers get to grip with PBR being in Prepar3D V4.4, the more products are starting to receive the texture treatment.

Following their initial PBR progress update two weeks ago, PMDG’s Robert Randazzo has dropped some new mouth-watering previews of the 747-400 QOTS II in all of it’s PBR glory, marking 50 years since the first Boeing 747 took flight. Also, he’s provided a short update in regards to the upcoming PBR update.

The below previews of the 747 in its classic launch livery (N401PW) is fully tricked out in what PMDG believes is their final round of changes to PBR rendering on a fully metallic 747-400. Bringing your attention to the reflections on the metal body, you see how PBR breathes air into the queen’s lungs dynamically reflecting the surrounding bed of clouds and skyline from a couple of angles.
