Rapide Islander Class fleet

Post by DaveB » 27 Feb 2007, 18:56

Hi Guy's,

With DaveG releasing a nice BEA paint for the v2 Rapide, it prompted me to do the rest of the Islander fleet for VA use. DG's paint is for AFEZ and the remainder of the paints can be downloaded below..

AFRK
AGPH
AGSH
AGSK
AGUP
AGUR
AGUU
AGUV
AHKS
AHKT
AHKU
AHKV
AHLL
AHXW
AHXX
AJXB
AKZB

Many thanks to DG for letting me loose with his BEA masters. These are not intended to be 100% accurate so please don't remind me that this is wrong and that's wrong. They're here to fill some holes for those who, like me, like to fly with the correct reg showing on the outside of the aircraft :wink:

Blimey DaveB :shock:

You wait months for a BEA repaint and all of a sudden 18 come along at once :lol:

Looking forward to showing them off to the Scottish Islanders - cheers mate!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes um, well.. what are you supposed to do when you get bored with flying :lol: Had DG not been totally brill in letting me have his master.psd, this wouldn't have happened so all credit for his work and generosity :wink: I'm no painter so I doubt I'll get the opportunity to do this again :sad: If anyone has, like me, bought their own Rapide and would like their personal reg done in BEA Islander livery.. I'll be more than happy to make one for them :wink:

DG.. if you're looking in, the master will never go any further though I'm sure you know that anyway :thumbsup:

Hi Ben :smile:

Painting is stretching it a little. The odd move here, a change of text there.. and I think I only PM'd Garry once throughout :lol: It's nice to be able to put something tangible back into the system that will live on.. for better or worse. Goes without saying none of the talent is mine.. I'm just lucky to have on tap some of the best folk in the business :wink:

Dave,

I know it's a bit late in the day, \\\i am currently flying GLE on a round robin. Was she an Islander and if so would it be possible for a repaint please as I cannot find one elsewhere?

Hi Simon

She was owned by BEA due to her being inherited from RAS.

Sixteen months later she was sold and never had a name so I doubt she was Islander class and seeing it was 1948 when she left the fleet it was well before that livery.
