Inspired by the photo-shopped picture, published by BA of World Tail 747s at LHR
I decided to have a go at the Crossing Borders (Egypt) tail. As this design never actually flew on a 747, I decided that I could play around with the image until I found something that I liked better than the one above, while staying true to the elements of the design. As some of the other tails (like Whale Rider from Canada) had more whitespace - this was the way I went.
This is the result (so far).

I am pretty happy with the result - so will go ahead and finish it with a new reg. G-BNLB went straight from Landor to Union Flag so that will be my selection as it could have had a World Tail had they lasted. I also have to switch the "Rendezvous" titles at the front.
What do you think? Keep as is, or add one more of the "flower" elements?
[for those who want to know the details - this is clearly a photoshop image - because from top to bottom: Waves and Cranes on a 744 is correct, Colour Down the Side never flew on a 742, Koguty Lowickie (or any other World Tail) made it onto a 741, Crossing Borders did not make it onto a 744, Rendezvous and Ndeble are correct, but Colum only made it to the 744, not a classic]
