Default British Airways. Dash 8 “Colour Down the Side”

This is my attempt to create the Utopia tail on the Brymon/British Airways Dash 8-300. It was the only aircraft in the BA fleet to have the “Colour Down the Side” world image which was designed by Sir Terry Frost. This is the March 2000 version which does not have a complete green panel on the tail. No points for guessing the inaccuracy in the bottom photo.

Just thought I’d add a photo of the box the model came in. I think the Gemini 1/400 scale stand is a better display option.

Superb as always Mike! Wish someone would make this in 1/400 as the only Dash-8 made is the stretched Q8-400 by Gemini.

Nicely done. One of the rarest Utopia tails of all. Congratulations. Did you design and print the decals yourself?

Thanks for you compliment. Yes I spent many hours creating the necessary decals on my steam driven computer.
