It is always possible to get them custom made to any scale. I have created many decals for many liveries, all of which can be reproduced to a scale of your choice (within reason). However one off custom creations do not come cheap as many hours are required to generate them.

Here is an example of some of my creations. The Air Atlantics were done in 1/500 scale

Thank you ModelmanGB . I am a bit hopeless about an 1/500 A340-500 in Ethiad livery .
As far as I understand you could take an existing ( Singapore , Emirates , or NeXT Arik air A340-500 frame and PAINT it into the EY colours.

But , of course , how much would that cost about ?

Many thanks
regards

Finding a good donor model is key to creating a good custom. Try to find a model of an A340-500 that already has a white base colour; this reduces the need for overpainting. All you need to do is to remove exixiting logos with acytone.
I will do some research and see if I can find what I think would be appropriate.
Can you supply a registration for the plane you want and a photo(or a link) of it ????

Greetings. I think the best doner model for this would be an emirates by herpa.
If you are keen to get a custom made please send me a PM and I can give you more information regarding my work.
Cheers
Mike
