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.
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.
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.
That seems like a good idea.
