Default BA 767-300 Delftblue Daybreak (Netherlands)

The quest for one of every BA tail on one of every type continues. As with the Waves of the City (USA) 767, decals were scanned and reprinted from an ancient DRAW decal set.

Looking at the pictures, I see a little remaining red paint from the original. With my eyes, I cannot see it when the model is on the shelf, so it will do for me.

Enjoy!

She joins her sister, the other Delftblue Variation on the 767, done with original decals.

I like this tail a lot! Great work! I do miss spotting BA 767s here in the U.S. The last time I saw a BA 767 was at Baltimore Intl in 2010. I was seated in a North American 767 and the BA was parked at the gate next to us. I remember thinking how nice it would be to just fly to London instead of my destination: Afghanistan!

Thanks! The picture of all the Delft tail variations is fascinating, including ones that never flew (AFAIK) and misses a couple that did. The 777 variation from G-RAES is missing, as is the second variation that flew on the 747. My versions of those have decals that were lighter blue..

The Delfsblue Daybreak livery suits the BA fleet. It matches the existing colours in the BA livery well without the contrasting colours. I like the versions where the tail and elevators are completaly wrapped with the livery.

Keep creating!

That might have been me - I used to fly the LHR-BWI route very regularly!

Great work on this one John, the decals look very crisp. There were certainly a lot of variations on this particular scheme...
