Default Thoughts on a re livery?

So I have a 1:50 scale 747-400 with RB211 engines that I’m debating having re liveried. I could have the engines changed out easily and made into any livery but I’m thinking these as potentials....

South African Current C/S or Springbok Orange Tail
Air New Zealand O/C
Qantas latest colours
British Airways 100 years Heritage livery, either BOAC or Negus.

Any thoughts?

From those choices, I was really partial to Air New Zealand.

Not even the red tail negus livery cause I think that would be stunning.

Years ago I used to own a 1/72 747-200 in the old Chinese CAAC livery, made by Skyland. It was an impressive model in those colours. Sadly it perished during one of my house moves.

It's certainly my favourite of the BA retro three, even if I do wish they'd used the better sized 'British' text instead of British Airways which looked a little bit lost upon the stretched upper deck of the 744.

I'm a big fan of Landor, so I'd say Landor

Honestly I’m torn between the Negus 747 and the BOAC livery. But it’s pretty much down to those two.

BOAC gets my vote! With those RB211s it'd be a shame to not have a BA livery ...

The old SAA Springbok livery was beautiful, shame it is gone. Lovely colours and logo.

Wonderful choice, especially since you choose the rarer -300 version.

But please make sure you do it with the old south african flag with same colours like this livery. Only my opinion....this livery and the new SA flag simply didnt match and I found the hybrids during transition a bit ugly.

Still looking for an SAA model in these old colours, I remember our Hamburg office used to have (I think 1:50) 747-200 or 300 in their window.

But hard to find.

Hi Jetjack74,

I'm sure that the updated SAA livery will look great, once completed.
