Is it me or is the blue too light?

Looked at the pictures posted by ScaleModelStore and to me the blue seems very light.

My other United "tulip" models have a darker blue. Posting the A320 and the B767 for comparison (apologies for the less than ideal light).

Absolutely love the livery.

What do you think?

So the non-flap version is also on eBay. But the non-flap version, at least the particular example photographed, is missing the tulip on the port side.

Love the livery, but think I will keep my original IF200 version!

Great scheme on a great mold, far superior than the Inflight200 version which suffers from a bad mold(depressed upper deck).

And don't forget that ugly joint between the fuselage and wings that plague the inflight 200s!

...and if the blue is too light as in some of the photos, I can live with the IF mixed in with the other United's it is displayed with. The wing joint and very very slight dip in the upper portion can't be noticed when viewing from 3 to 4 feet away. I guess it gets to some who hold their planes up close and inspect them! For the Blue and missing Tulip, I'm afraid that both could be spotted from much further than 3 to 4 feet away! Will be interested to see some other photos!

Hoping the missing logo isn't across the entire production run

Same here. And I’ve let several Inflight examples pass by because this one is arriving “soon”.

The photos that began this thread are overexposed. I can assure you that the colors are fine. Also, my copy (the standard version) features the tulip logo on both sides.

Excellent news!

Another 80/90s livery making me think the current thing is bad. At least that saves me TONS of money

It is noticed by us guys who fly our planes around the living room.

Nice United B747-422 there, yet I prefer the Battleship Gray Livery still over this one, just too bright this one in ways also where the wings are mounted some of the gray feels disconnected from the wing joints to the body; as your left photo also clearly shows.

Ah well a minor detail though, great so see that JC Wings did make this one from those that seek it
Also good to see you are happy with it as other owners of it, always good to see they went to good hands

Here my United B747-422 also from JC Wings but sporting the Battleship Gray livery:

Boeing 747-422
United Airlines "Battleship Gray Livery 1987"
N178UA
Scale 1:200

Just love it's darker colors
