Default EasyJet A321 Neo in 1/400 scale

On the 13th July 2018 EasyJet took delivery of their first A321 Neo when it arrived at Luton airport. To commemorate the occasion the Jolly ORANGE Box Co has produced the first 1/400 scale reproduction.

Here is the decal sheet I created for the EasyJet A321 Neo using MS Vista and excel. Should anybody be interested in creating their own decals please feel free to download this image as a guide, or possibly use the image to generate a decal, but you may need to resize it to fit.
Some orange paintwork is necessary after application to complete the scheme. I used Humbrol orange enamel No18.

Three more “orange” customs in the pipeline. Two relate to things you can hire.

Nicely done. Easyjet is always popular with collectors.

My modelling skills aren't up to doing it myself, so hoping someone produces one soon. Have flown on both MA and MB.

Panda models have released G-UZMB but it seems many “collectors” are selling them on at greatly inflated prices. So I decided to create my own using a JC Wings donor model purchased for a much more reasonable price. But just to be different my version is G-UZMC which flew its first commercial flight on 4th February 2019.

I picked up the Panda version for ordinary retail price and they're bloody lovely, just like your code 3 is.

What paint colour do you use for your customs, I am finding it hard to get a match.

Never mind I just read an earlier post, is that spray or brush?

When creating the decals for this EasyJet model on the computer I customised the orange colour as follows red(255) green(120) blue(0).
If you prefer acrylic paint Vallejo model colour 70.851(024) is also a fairly good match. I hand paint by the way.
