Any chance of a Delta Sky Team (The blue and grey) 747-8 and maybe even an Air France Sky Team 747-8 and not to push my luck here ..lol but a One world Cathay Pacific 747-8. You do amazing work would really love to see these and fly them as well. Thanks!

Hi Folks, Just in case anyone missed the Forthcoming Repaints thread, the SAS that was requested is now available from Avsim. http://library.avsim...4&CatID=fsxacrp I'm also working on completing the TNT repaint for the -8F and I have begin working on the -8i Varig repaint. @Carlos I noticed a number of different "flavors" of the Varig livery even in the old colors. May be you can let me know by reference to a picture or photo which specific livery you want painted? Right now I painting the Varig livery with the blue tail and gold star with the Varig Brasil titling on the fuselage. I think this will look great once it's finished! For more info on the SAS and TNT repaints, see Post#405 here...http://forum.avsim.n...s/page__st__400 CheersMark

Hi Mark,Nice to see that you have´nt forgotten my request:-)The livery you´re talking about is the 1997 modification, only some of their 747-300´s had them. The one I´d love to see is the one the -400´s wore:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_vbzp_OTMnlo/TUZXkGmCDZI/AAAAAAAAAXk/GUMRXZhdVak/s1600/b747-a.jpghttp://www.flickr.com/photos/denon/3253010471/I hope you dont take too long, I´ve been waiting anxiously!Carlos

Hey Carlos, Thx for the reply and the patience for waiting so long but I havent forgotten. All these requests do get listed. It's just a matter of finding the time sometimes. Actually I went ahead and began the Varig livery based on some photos I found, so this is what I have so far.... [attachment=31312:2011-8-21_16-29-10-785.jpg][attachment=31313:2011-8-21_16-29-34-564.jpg][attachment=31314:2011-8-21_16-30-17-834.jpg] Wrt to the photos many thanks this helps a lot. I can do this livery too! I need to find one or two more photos of this livery as It's hard to tell what the color of the underside of the aircraft is. Is that dark gray or is it chrome? Let me know? Stay tuned....2nd Varig livery on it's way.... RegardsMark
Hi Kevin, Thx for the compliment. I appreciate it. there's others on their way... just stay tuned to this thread. All the bestMark
Beautiful repaints as always.

Hi Carlos, Glad you like the livery! It turned out pretty good even if I do say so myself! Good choice/request. I did some small updates ... the engine color was too light so now it better matches the rest of the livery. Here's what she looks like now...[attachment=31384:2011-8-22_18-3-50-926.jpg] If you want to see more screenshots and the package ASAP, you can get it over at Dantrix.net now otherwse it will take the usual time to see it in Avsim. By the way, I found some more photos of the Varig livery you mentioned. I have already started on this but I am having some trouble trying to find even a decent photo of the "icaro" symbol (the flying angel) on the nose. I don't suppose you know where an image or photo would be? Let me know? ThxMark
Posted 24 August 2011 - 02:13 AM
Carlos, Found the icaro image.... well at least a picture of one on a DC3. So base don this I had to recreate the angel from scratch. I haven't applied to the aircraft yet, but I'm hopng it will look good. I will be in touch with another update shortly... CheersMark
Posted 02 September 2011 - 08:46 AM
Well folks, Here's some early screenshots of the -8i in the much earlier Varig livery as per Carlos' request.. She's not quite finished yet, but it's looking quite promising I think.... Enjoy!!!!!!!!
