Alitalia WIP

Recommended Posts

Folks

WIP of an Alitalia livery.  80% done, which means I have 80% of the time to go...  Learning a new paint kit and PS at the same time, plus only my second livery, first with bare metal to contend with...

A lot still to do and a lot to learn.  Hopefully done by Xmas...  The variation on this one won't take too long.

I love your 049 repaints! How about practising your art on the Six?

Cheers

More WIP.  Titles sorted.  Getting a feel for the curves.  Need to lose the shine next.  Then fix the front and back.  Left the fuselage grid on to see how it all fits.

I appreciate the encouragement.  I'm going to need more when I feel like throwing the mouse through the wall trying to get the nose right...

hehe... he already knows he's going to have to suffer my dumb questions when I get stuck...  He partly brought it upon himself.  😉

Hey Mickel!
Hav fun and take your time for your repaint!
I proceed a lot with the "trial & error" method with diff. colours that Jankees mentionned.
Perhaps he does have a lot of other tricks & tipps? 🙂
But this tail-part of the DC-6 is the plague.... See what I only managed after hours :

If you find the solution for your Alitalia repaint, let us know 😉

little apparent progress, but got some housekeeping done (involved a fair bit of reworking - rookie errors) which will make the rest easier.  Temporarily killed off the gloss to make checking easier.  Blue stripe to the tail section almost works.  Need to repeat it three more times though...

Yeah, the three light blue stripes.  Then mirror them for the other side, obviously.

Nose, well, yep.  Work to do.

Tail stripes are getting close.  Decided reg is too big, so will have to shrink.  Alitalia is too small on the wing...
