Default The BP Oil spill sucked...do these????

Okay lets get the corporate politics of how much everybody hates BP for what happened in the gulf and the purists that despise any or all fantasy models aside...Okay now that everyone is done mentally ranting, I think this logo and the colors are the most attractive on any plane out there..

787 Risesoon......A380.....Herpa (promotional release to Dubai and Frankfurt airports for LH and Emirates inaugrial services from Air BP)

An attractive and suitable livery for some tropical island airline but certainly not an oil company, especially the 'green' color.

That tail would be very gorgeous, when seeing taxing to the active runway! I know how exciting the Emirates tail looks when approaching Rwy 23. Is it just me but is the Herpa tail narrower than it should be. And of course those cockpit windows are too tiny.

I'll have to admit it does make an attractive livery for an airplane. I'm seeing it in four different color combinations (it's the Braniff affliction don't you know... )

Wow, you finally got the BP A380! I guess with so many people distancing themselves from that company, they no longer wanted the model? LMAO!!

Gorgeous livery, though!

Nice models though.

Brilliant from a logo design point of view. Politically...a whole 'nother ball of wax.
