Wish I'd spelt the title correctly


Wonder how soon this will appear in 400 scale, and which schemes maybe next, and on which aircraft?

Now which manufacturer is going to be first with this in 1/400?

Not only this livery, but further rumour has it they'll do one in the Negus and Landor liveries as well. So excited! Can't wait to see these in the flesh at Heathrow.

I'm no BA expert, but looking at the pictures, shouldn't the BOAC 747 engine cowlings be white to match the old scheme?

Its a drawing....
So we mighty even see BEA on an airbus.

But I reckon a white top A380 as per the old BOAC Stratocruiser - their last proper twindecker?

Gemini ought to be all over this already. Certainly don't want to give Phoenix the advance on their poor 744 tooling.

don't forget BEA...wouldn't a BEA speedjack look the part on one of their A320's, then there's the Red Square livery... would they go the whole hog with red-topped wings..?
Could be an interesting sight..

Whee! Hope BA do many historical retro liveries for their centenary. BOAC, Negus, Landor would all be very welcome on 747's. And Gemini might actually make these 747's, I wonder if BA would make some corporate orders. The Gemini upgraded 744 mould is good, but borrowing a BB or Witty mould from JC would be even better.

BA collectors and others which does retro colours are so fortunate.

I would love to a modern aircraft model in the old Orange SAA colours, but sadly, there is zero change of that happening anytime in the next 1000 years as people form associations with the colours and the regime in charge then. I still think it was a beutiful scheme and SAA is one of the oldest carriers our there. It has a history of colours, but sadly that history must be 'forgotten'.

So be glad you can enjoy the retro colours you can get. :-)

That would be amazing. I would then have an actual living memory of seeing a 747 in this livery. It's my all-time favourite.

That would be a hell of an expensive repaint, changing the white top to grey,
More likely to get an A320 in BEA red square, just paint the black cheatline and have some vinyl red square stickers made up. The most expensive part would be to respray the wings red.

I don't think modern wings could be painted?

You make a very good point, how big is the budget for this, maybe only schemes that aren't to far from the current livery will be done (well on the larger aircraft anyway).


So would Aviaction's Stratocruiser work??

I read an article that said all retro schemes will be applied to 747's. BOAC will look great. I assume BA has selected aircraft due for paint. Also, they won't be lease returns for 3-5 years?

Wow it will be fantastic seeing a BOAC scheme again, on a 747-400.

BOAC were my favourate airline as a kid in the 70s, loved seeing their 747s, VC-10s, and of course their 707s.

Hope someone does this model.

I don't think BA leased any 744's ? All purchased AFAIK ? With the exception of the 757 fleet, just about everything else they've retired in recent years has been scrapped. the

Yes, three 747s plus an A319. The reggies will be:

G-BNLY
G-BYGC
G-CIVB
G-EUPJ

Probably the 747s to be painted in the early BOAC scheme (as on 707s), the first 747 BOAC scheme and in BA Negus, whilst the A319 will probably be in BEA Peony red striped scheme as I can't see them respraying the wings red for later schemes, but may be surprised.

To save costs, the 747s will not be repainted back into BA colours, but will be retired shortly afterwards still in their retro schemes,

I hope they decide to put this livery on the A380. Of all aircraft types, this plane would be most fitting for the Landor livery.

For the retro Negus 747, I wonder which device they will use - 'British airways' or 'British'...? I like both, but would perhaps like to see the former applied, which is the original 1973-4 livery

I'll guess 'British Airways' as that might save putting an 'operated by British Airways' sticker on it like the 'British' painted 757 had and the BOAC renderings show.

Oh yes indeed! That would be great if they do 'British Airways' then - with the 'Airways' as 'airways' of course Sans stickers, this will make the Negus aircraft very faithful to the original application of that scheme if this proves to be the case!

If they do it in Negus colours, pretty sure it will have full 'British Airways' titles as BA were not allowed to copyright just 'British', as British Air Ferries proved by putting just 'British' on their Viscounts too. It was that controversial issue that forced BA into a complete rebranding into the Landor colours.

Oh I see - interesting. I think on balance, I prefer the full 'British Airways' titles, always thought the 'British' looked a bit odd! Also a black radome would be nice, not all 747s had them, but the ones that did looked very smart with that.

Is the Landor going to be the exact same on the older 744's or are there any special "decals" applied

Same as in post #25 above, with the a.net contributor's added caveat of "So I'm led to believe ?" Maybe he lifted it from here too... ?

Thanks Russell. Apparently all BA aircraft get repainted every five years and the 747s are not being retired shortly as first thought, but not until 2023-24, so the retro schemes will be repainted afterwards back into BA colours. I was rather hoping one of the 747s would be put into a 'non 747' BOAC scheme with white tail and twin-blue stripes across it, as the Landor scheme is too recent to be 'historical' in mind mind. I wonder which BEA scheme the A319 will adopt?

I personally believe the Landor Scheme was the prettiest and classiest design to ever grace an airframe..I cant wait to see it again!

Cool Re: BA to paint a 747-400 in BOAC colurs plus othe

Pity none of these retro schemes are being applied to other aircraft types.


The Golden Speedbird BOAC B789 would look pretty damn awesome IRL.

Maybe also a Landor A35K too...

I already have a 1:400 Golden Speedbird 747-100 and one in 1:200 as well. Guess I'll wait for the BEA livery on the baby Airbus.

Very cool they're doing it though.

Ah yes, but don't forget that BA's 747s are now all -400 series, so you'll need to get the new releases (if they are made!) in the retro schemes!

SM200 did a BOAC 787 in 200 scale a few years back. only 22 made with the DC 10. Would have been great to see for real!

That BOAC livery has to be one of the classiest ever. It seems to sit well on any aircraft type.
I had a couple of the old Airfix kits in that livery; a Concorde, B707 and a VC10 when I was a kid - and now; 40+ years on, I am trying to re-build that fleet.

Cool Re: BA to paint a 747-400 in BOAC colurs plus othe

Agree, the BOAC golden speedbird livery is absolute class and would look so fine on any of the current fleet.


It appears I'm not the only one speculating on a Landor A350 though... (I'd go a 35K rather than this 359 myself.)

Not too shabby eh? (Although the artists logo on the rear fuse, would have to go! )
