Default Hoping for a new Lufthansa gemini 747-8 soon

Allthough I'm still hoping for the D-ABYP 1500th 747 to be made in 1:200 (phoenix seem to have made it but pics are nowhere to find), rumors are that Lufthansa is introducing a new color scheme on the D-ABYA on the 7th of february!

So hope to see the new livery from gemini/ herpa soon

Any lufthansa insiders here know what the new livery will be??

I'm not an insider, but someone I follow on Instagram that is connected to the aviation industry posted this as the rumored livery. I don't know about you guys, but I'm really going to miss the yellow. I'm also interested to see if the blue has a metallic finish to it.

Looks cheap. I think the new LH livery will be failure most likely.

The yellow would have still gone well with the blue. Maybe they could have made it kind of flurecent to kind of match the blue?

The first 747-8i (D-ABYA) is already at FCO inside the ex-AZ painting hangar to be painted in the new colour scheme.

I personally hope that the yellow stays. But let's wait and see..also a bit strange that they didn't change the livery with the introduction of the A350..

I also agree that I hope that Lufthansa keeps some yellow in their livery.

I do not know the exact reason, but at FCO they are also painting an Eurowings A340-300, so I think that LH could have some agreement with IAC, the actual owner of ex-AZ painting hangar

Just take one of your Qantas 1:200 models and paint the tail blue, pretty much the same thing.

. Very true. However, a B748 would be most welcome.
