what do you think about my repaint of this train ?
I guess many of you are familiar with the base model. It goes back to the early days of the MSTS, but since it is the only model I found of the Shinkansen 500 series, I decided to give it a shot and update its textures a little bit.
Since the whole waggons are painted on the aces, the *.ace sizes were critical if I wanted to add some new details. So I decided to increase the size from the original 512x512 up to 4096x4096 ! And guess what ? It works like a charm ! Only ShapeViewer won't display anything at all, but in the MSTS it runs smoothly !
This could be important for other repainters and model-builders as well - some people think that 1024x1024 was the "limit" of MSTS, but my repaint proves that 4096x4096 is not a problem, either !

I'd like to add real lights and a second CabView soon.
