Hi Misos,
nice work, but there something unconvincing on the ground around the landing gear leg, perhaps a bad retouch of the original photo.
The colors of the ground aren't still convincing.
I think that the outline of the numbers should be blue, not red.
Could be that the wheel disk is green.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
thanks for comment.
Wheel disc looks too light for dark green. IMHO it is either light blue or steelgray A-14, which I chose.
Number outline is (same) dark as red star, so IMHO it is red, not blue which looks brighter.
Surrounding surface is not finished yet. I do not know what is dark area next to the concrete, it looks like clay/earth - the surface under construction.

Hi,
back from mountains, I tried to correct grass and area on the background:
