Garry Russell put alot of Skyways paints in Ricks set up == not sure if Victor Golf was one of them -- I know he did it in DanAir colours
And with that colour scheme it should have the Coah Air logo on the nose.

but would love to do that other one, do you have a good shot at the nose logo with the aircraft and the coach please!?
Soon, hopefully, I'll be busy enough doing my own textures for a new bird...if all goes as expected.

They are very good Rui, and thats not what I am saying
Garry Russell in my opinion is one fo the finest painters around, we are very lucky to have him on the admin staff here
We all trust his opinion and I thought you might like some constructive critism.

He also taught several folks here the art of paint....

Im curious though which model did you use? to get the all freighter version?

Hi Rui


It is indeed a loveley subject:)

That was one of the last ones they bought and went to Dan Air rather than Dan Air Skyways like the rest as it left Skyways before the collapse.
The livery was don as the Coach Air and the "London" in the pack....Jersey European by Tony Madge is also there

It is one of those liveries that does not reproduce well in colour...BEA FJ and BA Landor are too others,but you can see in you pic the photo is bleached.:(

The blue is more turquoise and the red less pinkish.......the pic is lacking yellow

It took me about four days of communication to get the colours from Leif via email as Leif saw them but I didn't

After all that it turns out it was the same blue as Dan Air Skyways.which makes sense and that I did used to see.

It need wing registrations too

Rui

I still have the original logo however judging by the late issue of XVG plus I believe (Garry can confirm it) that VG was one of the few SKyways aircraft one if not the only aircraft
to be painted in the last Skyways ALL green scheme.

I you want the coach air log I'll shoot it to you
