Hello Fellow Modelers,

I have been asked to build a 1/100 scale 767-200 in the grey UAL scheme. I was hoping someone would know if there is a decal in that scale available. I was also wondering what the nickname of that scheme is called. I call it the ugly scheme or the military scheme because it is grey and blue........YUK! Kind of like NWA's "Bowling Shoe" scheme........

Thanks

Tom

Models, try 'em..........

I think I've heard "battleship" or "battleship grey" before.

I think it was called "Stealth" because on a dark, gray day you couldn't see the planes at all. United was trying their best to hide them as much as possible. I'm sorry, but I think that's one of the ugliest schemes ever to adorn an airliner, probably in the top 3, if not in first place.

Regards,

That's it! Now I remember and I agree with you 100%. Thanks Ahmed. I have a feeling there is no decal for it in that scale huh.

Tom,
Our loved and very missed friend Dave Rider drew the "stealth" United decals for
Vince's Flightpath line. He did the 767, 757, 737, 727 and 747. I have them all in 1/144
but I do not know if he ever made them in 1/100 scale.
I am sure Marc Borer can do them for you.

I think the 727 looked cool in that livery, but then again, the 727 looked cool in any livery.
She had the sexiest wing ever! ;)

I can remember what grey and blue paint I used, Hannants?

Makes sense. I'm not crazy though am I? I just googled United Airlnes battleship and came up with a ton of blue/grey pics.

Either way, you're all right; not that pretty!

Thanks guys. Yes, Hannants does supply the correct colors.

Walter, that was my alternate plan to ask Mark for help.

And yes, Dave did those schemes and I think you are right, they were in 1/144 only IIRC.

And Steve, that is a good idea as well provided I can find a set. Is there anybody out there that can help get a set for the 747?

Models, try 'em..........

I am sure Marc will help but
I do have lots of Revell 747-400 United decals.
I will mail you a couple.
