Quick Update II:
Rather than continually post each new livery I create, I figured it would be easier to unveil them in weekly posts every Sunday.
I will be taking requests, that will be posted on the Sunday after you request a specific livery.
I may also be able to create liveries for VA’s, although due to their design may take longer and would require more work – specific due dates cannot be offered, but an estimate will.
Feedback would be much appreciated; please let me know what I can do to improve my skills.
Without further ado, I present the liveries of this week!
Although American Airlines has MD-88’s, their quick retirement from their fleet meant they never got to be repainted in their newest colour scheme. Thus, I figured it’d be interesting to see what that’d be like.
With Alaska Airlines slowly beginning the process of repainting 737s into their new livery, I thought it’d be interesting to keep one around with sharklets before they’re all repainted.
This is a request from @AppleOneGT
at the turn of February. Like the B6 A350, I figured I’d go back over all previous commitments and finish their liveries.
Similar to the AA MD-88, DL actually transferred some 747-200s from Northwest during the merger, which unfortunately were stored and either scrapped or sold without seeing new colours or being in revenue service with DL. Still interesting to see what it could have looked like though!
This aircraft has always been one of my favourites – the CC-150 Polaris. This is an A310 that has been converted for combi-use and refuelling, and is an essential part of the RCAF. Even as an American, I find this short stubby aircraft is a delight to see, and considering that one has flown the PM around, is interesting considering Canada remains one of my favourite countries.
The Level A330 is self explanatory – the livery mostly exists due to the recent first flight of LEVEL just a few days ago.
With the recent deliveries of newer planes to Iran Air, I figured it’d be interesting to paint in A321 in their colours just to have an example of the newest aircraft IR has after decades in the dark.
As a Korean-American, I figured it was only worthwhile to have a 747 painted in Korean Air colours. Considering only 3 airlines fly the 747-8, it was a no-brainer to have it in KE colours because there was going to be few chances to ever use the template again.
KLM remains one of the few airlines I hold dearly – this example, PH-BFG, is still my most memorable aircraft in their fleet. Back in August, I flew down to SXM for the sole purpose of seeing the KL 744 land before they were gone, and it just so happened to be that it was this aircraft I got to see.
Also one of the airlines I love most is Swiss, mostly due to their attention to design, detail, and their pleasant simplicity. After the collapse of SR, I figured an MD-11 serve well as a symbol of the resurrection of Swiss and the restoration to excellence.
This is more of a historical repaint – considering UA has flown almost all varieties of the 737, and currently has orders for the 737MAX, I figured it was neecssary to see what a UA 732 would look like today.
Last, but not least, is a WestJet 789. With their not-so-recent order, I figured this would be a quick repaint to envision the future of both WestJet and Canadian aviation as a whole.
