At work I have been watching a new paintscheme come together for Swiss Airlines....

This one was a little special and I thought I would share it with you.........

What is special you may ask, well in this world of computers and digital graphics decals that most aircraft have these days, this whole lower picture scheme has been applied over the last week and a half by 3 AIRBRUSH ARTISTS. Yup, you heard me right, you know the same little Badger airbrush you paint your models with, well they used those to do the whole of this colourful scheme, was facinating to watch.

Bad thing was they never saw it completed as they were late for another job, so they left when the plane was still masked up to allow a coat of laquer to be applied over it.

But I digress, the pictures http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Fantastic work... TT was the Green applied over the basic white by your chaps first and then highlighted by the airbrush guy's?

Not by my guy's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Air Livery have taken over British Midlands paint shop so i just sorta kept wandering round to watch em at it...... they even had the damn thing up on sticks and the gear retracted so it all lines up when painted, yes they applied a single colour green background to the aircraft over figure shaped masks the guys (and gal) had done, then they went to work on it everything over the green and white they added by airbrush... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
