That New Zealand fictional paint job rocks on the -8....New Zealand should consider adopting it!

They do have that livery on the 777-300ER, but the 747's were disposed of a couple of years ago

(Although as alluded to, most airliners are white so they don't soak up to much heat...)

The 3D model of this -8 is, perhaps, the best I've ever seen in FS- round or oval things actually look round or oval...for a sim old-timer such as myself, this day has been long awaited.  I am certainly going to be setting up lots of external views for those somewhat longer flights where the Autopilot has the plane.

Mark, Air NZ has a 77W, 787, ATR72, and a Dash 8 each in a black scheme almost identical to this. I'm told it has a negligible impact on temperatures but incurs a not-inconsiderable weight penalty, particularly on the larger aircraft.

...the only difference is that we didn't paint YK. It's YC.

(So, yes.)

Can I have a look so you guys can fix all the errors before release? 😛
