I had a go at producing both the 2009 and 2011 tour 757 aircraft, to go along with my established Hogan 400 744 that they used on the 2017 Book of Souls tour. Two NG 757 donors, an ex El Al and a BA 'Blue Peter' scheme plus the twin decal sets from V1.

I generally try and keep the original cockpit printing whilst stripping these down for decalling. Unfortunately I got a bit fast and free with the acetone and accidentally part removed the 2009 plane's cockpit. Thinking "ok, I'll just use the supplied V1 decal" I'm disappointed to see it looks a little oversized and might better suit an L-1011. Oh well, still better looking than the official Phoenix releases of these two, from years ago.
