Simon, as usual, you did a great job here. I specially like the Braniff jellybeans. Keep up the good work.

Great work on a great plane. Another nice color scheme was the TEAL Electra's (Air New Zealand these days)

Fantastic!!!.....one of the few artist to capture, exactly, the quirky shape of the Electra!!...Boy did the Braniff and Eastern Hockey Stick Electras bring back wonderful memories of my youth. Flew them (Braniff) MANY times.

Those were the days...
