Gemini 200 KLM Skyteam 777-300ER
 
Hi guys,

The original donor model was a JC wings V Australia 777 with its correctly metallic fuselage colour this made for a perfect donor.

Stang, what paint color did you use for the body?

Now THIS looks like the correct color on the fuselage, unlike what is on the 1:200 scale 737-900. (Which I've removed from my wish list and for that reason.)

I'm not sure what is the right colour. http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/m...ons/whaaaa.gif

I have the Hogan Skyteam/Airfrance 777 and the colour looks a bit darker than some photos on A.net, yet about right in others. One thing for sure is the metallic flake on the Hogan one is a tad too large. I suspect that is where Gemini got it right, but I question the lightness of the silver tone. Mind you, a hundred things can cause that to change -- starting with lighting, white balance, or surrounding colours -- so the 'Virgin' metallic could very well be closer to being correct. I do know that I saw a Skyteam/Alitalia 767 the other day flying overhead and it did look very 'silver'. Then I put my Hogan ST/AF 777 in the same sunlight, against the same sky -- just moments later -- and it did too. (Crazy!http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/m...ns/dazzled.gif)

One thing for sure, is F-GZNE is shiny slick (or was earlier this year -- its also gotten a bit grubby looking as well). So I coated mine with 3 coats of Future and THAT made the model stand up and dazzle!! I'm also going to get the Draw Decal sheet for the ST/AF 777 and rob it for the fuselage details (baggage door warnings, radio ports, and whatever else I can gleen).




I estimate the Hogan one is around this colour above (for what it is worth), and mine is NOW that shiny. :cool:;)




And this one above looks as white as the AF one in the distance!

All the very same aircraft (F-GZNE), yet looking different in each shot.

Agreed about the 737-900 (that is the AV200 one you are referring too, yes?). If so, I think the mould and flightdeck windscreen is probably what put it off my list before the colour of the livery (which did seem a wee too bland for me). ;)
