Default New Air Force One 747-8

Has anyone heard of a manufacturer that is planning to release the new Air Force One 747-8 anytime soon? Hogan or Skymarks?

Just curious as I'd like to get one before the actual aircraft comes out.

Did the AF1 design change actually get approved? I recall the proposals a month or so ago, but then never heard anything about if the change will actually happen.

While I don't think a change is necessary, I don't dislike the above rendering.

P.S. Why do you want a model of it before the actual aircraft comes out? Things are always subject to change, and there's no guarantee a model will be accurate until the actual one rolls out of the paint shop.

Congress has to approve the change and at the rate things are going in the three ringed circus with the children at play, I doubt anytime soon!

I agree. This is only a fantasy livery at best.

IF they go with the rendering - I'd like to see a font that bolder than what is shown. Regardless of the livery - what's the timeframe for delivery of the new 748s? There would be 2 yes?

Don’t like the tail (nothing against the flag). Just doesn’t look sharp. Maybe have the whole tail be a waving flag?
Personally I think the livery should remain the same. It’s a classic and love the chrome. But if it will be this then change tail design

Even if the logo gets approval in Congress, good chance it will be changed back to what it is now after the next elections. Apart from Trump himself, I don't think anyone is really waiting for this change to happen.

It's not horrible, but I definitely prefer the current colors instead.

Right on! So true, that is what I have said before in another thread. Reminds me so much of the last TWA livery...making the US creative again...not!

Its a new form of camouflage. Its cleverly disguised to look like an ordinary airliner at the airport so it wont draw any attention

Did Gemini Jets produce a 1:200 747-8i in current AF1 colours ? I know there was a 1:400 last year.

I like the current livery better. This looks awful, and I sincerely hope they do not go through with this design.

The simularity with TWA is indeed obvious... But a polished belly is allways better!

It is a proven fact that indeed, polished bellies are better.

This looks like a cross between the Japanese Head of State aircraft and the last TWA livery. I think it looks tacky as hell. Too much red and the flag on the tail is not a good look in combination with the cheat lines.

I prefer the current paint scheme. Unless a new law is passed and signed by the president, congress does not have to approve the change in paint. We’ll have to wait to see who is president when it comes time to paint the aircraft.
