Picture Of A Model On A.Net?

Is it just me or does the plane in this picture look like a model?! The cockpit windows look very gray, like the decals on many models I have, as do the windows. Also, the front of the engines don't look reflective and metallic, they almost look plastic. The rudder looks like a crease rather than an actual different part, as do the elevators on the horizontal stabilizers. I don't know, I'm a little skeptical.

I'm assuming (and hoping) that it isn't a model (for the sake of this site), and if it isn't, than it's an amazing lighting effect. Congrats to whoever took it, it looks so cool, especially with the shiny paint and vortices!


P.S. I don't know if this is in the right forum, but it is a question about the picture and this is the photography forum.  Smile Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 5DMkII, Sigma 50mm 1.4, Canon 24-70 2.8L II, Canon 100mm 2.8L, Canon 100-4

Wow, I've never seen a model with realistic flap settings, every antenna the real aircraft has, an impressive paint job etc etc...

In other words, this one is real.
