      Hi Ben,

      Nice job on your website. Lots of good stuff!

      How about a 1/144 767-300 in the Asiana current livery for the Zvezda kit? I have wondered why that has not been done. Fairly attractive and a major carrier in Korea.

      Thanks for posting.

      Thank you for your kind words Mark! What a livery that is - kind of a tricky one to do a good job of I imagine. Don't think we can do much with it cost-effectively using our current methods of printing white and opaque colours, but will keep it in mind in case something changes. What do you think would be the best way to do it as a decal set with regards to the tail and aft fuselage? At a glance painting the whole thing seems like the best way to go to avoid messy decal wrinkling and misalignment between the fuselage and tail, but perhaps something good could still be achieved making a decal set for just the red, yellow, orange and purple. Real head-scratcher that one..

      Our Polish/Brazilian friend did an Asiana sheet for the 772 and 744. Decal layout was the colour panels only.
      The grey-brown was to be painted. Hannants do an Asiana grey in the Xtracolor range. Good luck laying your
      mitts on it. Difficult, but not impossible from what I hear.

      A word about the colour panels. The BDcal sheet is one of the more recent ones that seem to be laser printed.
      Though, having observed that, the panels don't disappear over the grey-brown. One can plainly see the painted
      parts under the yellow decal. It's not totally opaque. But, not bad. Ben..this is your specialty area, so maybe
      you can do some magic.

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks for replying!

      I would paint the brown as mentioned first. Then I would do each color as a separate decal panel. Make the red translucent so that the brown underneath makes a dark red and the yellow underneath makes a lighter shade of red and gives it the overlapping colors effect. I guess painting the whole thing would work in a similar fashion starting with Brown, yellow, transparent red, and finish with the blue.

      After I posted this, I realized that the Zvezda kit does not model the more common door layout on the 767. So it is more appropriate to use the Revell kit unless you fill in the windows and sand off the doors of the Zvezda kit.

      Thanks for considering it.
