United New Livery
 
4 Attachment(s)
Bought the model and decals at AI. Decals are okay, but they're nothing to write home about. I saw this livery at EWR the day I flew out to ATL. I still prefer the Continental livery, but battleship will always have my heart lmao
Donor model was a new Gemini200 UA 738. Though I prefer the windows that typically come, these windows with half closed/closed shades are a nice change ! I couldn't find matching enamel paint for the wings/engines, so I had to do a bunch of thin layers of acrylic. Totally goes against my modelling, but I had to do what I had to do ! Overall I'm mostly happy with it. It's gonna sit nice with the rest of my UA. I can't wait for the official releases

It was great seeing you at the show and thanks again for bringing that secret model! This is quite a conversion and to know you did it in less then a week great job! I hope you enjoyed the show...As you know this and all the others will be regular releases but for now you may be the only one with a diecast version out there..:)

Good job on the custom. As far as the new United is concerned. I don't like the tail at all. The rest of it (Colour, titles) is fine. It hasn't been CO for MANY years now.
If they didn't want to give us the overwhelming demand for the tulip, starting totally fresh would have been the way to go. Just sayin.

Likewise!! I'm excited for the Gemini release, I've already got it on pre order haha Super excited for the FedEx A310 as well. I do not like HM's at all

Thanks !! Yeah the tail looks like a bad mismash of CO globe and rising blue. I wonder what their new logo/colours would've looked like had they done that.
