    Hey Haidar thanks for the comment! Are you having trouble with materials or are you saying the .blend file is corrupt?

    Hey! Thank you very much! But i have the same problem, when i render the pic i dont get this blurry light background, i get a black background with sharp white squares on it. Do you know how to fix that?

    you have to turn on all the render layers and connect the Multiply node with the Composite node in the node editor

    This model is beautiful. It's not just beautiful, but also easy to customise. Like you can widebody it, and and give new headlamps, tail lamps. Thanks so much BlenderCentral :)) <3
