I asked for the color of the cladding for a good reason, there is always a basic color, and since you don't know, quit answering to my every post! Its so tiresome and annoying, please stop, and if anyone else knows, write it on my scale model thread...cheez...

You don't get it do you?

The glass is greenish blue colour and while most of the time would appear to be blue, sometimes, depending on the intensity of the sunlight and the angle of observation, will appear to be greenish.

Good lord, I'm trying to give you the most correct answer, but it seams some people just can't handle anything more complicated then 1+1=2

AltinD have a good sense of humor that he use all the time in delivering his information. We need this kindda humor now n then, thats how we enjoy these forums more.
I checked your models ReiAyanami and they r simply astonishing!!
I would kill to have such a collection!
I understand why you really care about the final cladding color, but I think you have it perfect on your model.

I was serious and my responses are all correct. Yes, the glass can change the appearance in colour based on the light conditions. After all 'colour' is just a light-induced optical illusion.

Even the colour of my car, that is solid paint over a metal sheet, can change based on the intensity of light, from blackish to a very nice brown.

Its a bad idea to come and ask here anyway. And since paper can only have one color printed one it, I'll just wait to see when the cladding comes up...

Cladding is already up. Check the pictures (one was even quoted by yourself a few posts above) and use the colour nearer to what you see on them.

If even that wouldn't be enough, and since you ignore also what people who see them regularely have to say, the only thing left would be to fly over and check it with your own eyes.

You don't seem to get it, do you?

The cladding changed to blue tones, compared to the renderings that showed it green and not reflecting to the Sun and the sky.
I'll need to update the models, and check out more towers U/C, seems that this happens often in Dubai's projects and I can't understand why.
Still, the vertical surfaces in the balconies haven't been cladded yet. We'll wait and see the result.

1. It is not uncommon that the cladding colours or materials used are changed from design to implementation.

2. The glass indeed changes colour appearance as per the light conditions. The Emirates Crown Tower, next to Princess that seams to have a blue colour glass cladding in the picture, most of the time in real life looks like a greenish colour very similar to what Princess tower has in the render you posted. Even more pronounced is this effect on the Marina Heights tower in the background of the picture, that also seams there to have blue glass.
