That's another great entry from you. :D
Thanks. :)

It's definitely something I want to do. I'm just not sure how I'd organize it. Yours does it airline by airline, which seems to make the most sense, but I'm sort of "mixing it up" in this thread, posting aircraft as I do them. I'm still sort of brainstorming what I want to do with that.

Mostly for an AU idea for something else. Lots of little people, not entirely sure if this breaks the rules for Shipbucket or not. If there is anything I need to fix please let me know. Is it also okay to post WiP images like this?

Posting a few regionals before I go to bed, which almost completes my narrowbody list. There's one left I have planned, but I'll tackle that later on. After these, I'll be focusing on widebodies.

Looks good!
The only thing that looks weird is the engine of the Q400. The darker blue is the same as all other Wikipedian aircrafts, but being an high-wing monoplane contrary to the other planes it sets the engine against the upper fuselage blue backdrop instead of the grey underbelly. This instead of contrasting well it creates an effect which somehow blurs and sinks the engine into the aircraft profile.
Just an aesthetic quibble anyway, one cannot ask the airline to redo its livery just because it does not look best on a single type out of the entire fleet. :)

If you know already how many airlines your AU features you can introduce them in a couple of posts at the start of the thread and then link the aircraft posts to each airline as you do them (like I do, even if in my compulsive order-disorder I still post airlines and aircrafts in order). This means doing a post for each aircraft and not one post with multiple aircrafts and airlines however.

Yeah, I noticed that was an issue. The scheme is based on the old US Airways scheme, which did the same thing on their Dash-8 fleet (see here). Their other aircraft actually had gray engines to match the underbelly, and it seems that most carriers (including most of the other AU carriers I've done) have the engines match the belly.

That seems like a good idea.

While I'm saving most of my new drawings for a planned dedicated thread, I wanted to share two examples from a defunct Wikipedian carrier, Universal Airlines, which operated from 2001 until 2010.

The first is a McDonnell-Douglas MD-11ER, which served with Universal from its founding until it ceased operations. Universal was the only carrier which operated the type for scheduled passenger service. Most went on to serve as freighters thereafter.

Next is a Boeing 747-400, another mainstay of Universal's long-haul and international service. This example (W666WU) now serves with Echo Air.

F-16X Stealth Falcon:
[ img ]

An idea that sprung up when I was reading about how many of the technologies developed for the F-35 program were first tested on the F-16, and how plausible they would be on the F-16 itself beyond being a testbed. This aircraft is equipped with the Diverterless Supersonic Inlet, Low-Observable Asymmetric Nozzle, and Have Glass V radar-absorbing paint in order to reduce the F-16C's RCS as much as possible. The single vertical stabilizer would still be an issue in a "stealthy" design like this (which concepts like the real F-16X tailless design remove in favor of 3D thrust-vectoring engines), as would carrying basically any weaponry at all since the F-16 lacks internal weapons bays. Nevertheless, it's an interesting idea that shows that relatively simple (as simple as state-of-the-art aeronautics technology goes) changes can give even the slightest edge to an aircraft like the F-16.

I've always had this down as a perfect AU aircraft, an F-16 with the DSI, just for cool looks let alone the slight advantage it might give. I never got around to ever attempting to draw it, so its really nice to see this what-if.

I love the stealth F-16 idea. One could even upgrade a Block 60 F-16F to an "F-16SF Silent Falcon," analogous to the "F-15SE Silent Eagle." Maybe even with a V-tail, if that would work.

Anyway, onto something completely different, namely an AU version of the Twin Otter drawing I recently updated. This example is a Viking Air DHC-6 Series 400 of Air NCI, a small airline serving New Craggy Island, an island located off the west coast of Wikipedia and Universe. Supported under the Essential Air Services program, Air NCI provides multiple daily flights between the small coastal city of O'Charlotte and the town of Shannonsgee, the main settlement on New Craggy Island. The Twin Otter is well-suited for landings on the relatively short 500m runway at Shannonsgee Field.

Hi all,

i finished a new design, mainly for the use in the Normerr-AU,
but I first want to show you the prototype:

Hope you like it ;-)
