Korean Air Cargo 747-8 HL7609 is now available: https://goo.gl/4MUFSf

Great looking paint, there's something nice about the KE livery.  My first ride on a 748 was on KE from ICN-NRT, just two weeks ago, HL7463.  And two days later, I managed to spot the former "Siegerflieger", LH 748 at Haneda.  The titles are off now, so maybe "Traurigerflieger" should be it's name..

THANK-YOU Steve!

My pleasure Carl.  Its 97.3% PMDG paint though...I just added the logos, changed the reg, and added some reflective lighting touches to the Cargolux text.  I just figured we should all be flying this paint to pay tribute to the man who gave us the 747. :wink:

BA World Cargo up now!

Fantastic as always Alex!  So sad that BA decided to pick the A380 over this beauty...such a great history of the airline/manufacturer relationship....the 747 looked so beautiful in this paint...and of course in Landor...the best BA livery of all time.

Probably like a 747-400, but longer and without winglets?

You're exactly correct Kevin! 🙂  And of course the other major difference would be the lack of an RR engine option....I think the 747 looked wonderful wearing them.

Steve, John, and Alex too. I really appreciate your work. Good stuff!!! I've been doing this for a while, but I am nowhere near as good as you guys. I wish I could paint half as good as you all. Keep it up!!!

It isn't actually that difficult so to speak, it is just about knowing what details to look for!

I guess experience helps a bit too!

It isn't fictional as it seems. Just add "Cargo" on it and its real 😄

Awesome! The QTR livery suits perfectly on Queen's body!

It isn't fictional anyway. It is a BBJ and rego is A7-HHE!

LOL...it has seemed to.  I know of one other painter painting them besides us, but he flies the real thing in his "spare" time when he's not painting them...hope he'll post his preview pics here soon.

Beautiful job on Qatar Alex!

I have a sneaky suspicion that John will paint Qatar Cargo...as he also puts out an awesome Qatar livery (loved it on his 777 and I think he also did the 787?)

Thanks Curtis!

As Alex mentioned, the difficulty factor is relative, and nothing beats raw numbers of paints (and determination) to increase your proficiency and accuracy.  Every painter you listed has been painting for years (decades even) and have paint counts well into the hundreds to their names. :wink:

Cool, Nice copy from Fabio Leal !

What will be your next copy project?

Interesting, because when I looked at the link you provided and looked at the screenshots for the aforementioned livery, the coloring of it doesn't even look close to being the same, so I don't know why you think it's a copy. Just because somebody already painted a livery doesn't mean they're entitled to being the ONLY one who is allowed to do so. Just throwing that out there.

Seriously? There's only so many -8 liveries. So it's no surprise there'll be double ups.

I wasn't aware there was some rule hat if someone painted it, it means it's off the table.........

Yeah,  I think I will. I really like the livery, esp on the -8
