I love the 'salmon' color they used on the titles. Makes the whole thin really pop just with that alone. Overall nice job done by everyone involved (e.g AS, and contractors). Picks up right where Salmon Thirty Salmon I - left off.

I am not very familiar with painting techniques used on aircraft. Can someone elaborate on how exactly the process can create blending of colors and some of the fading spots on the fish? This is a general question for all liveries/ac. I am familiar with how basic schemes are done, but not the complex ones.

The paint process is basically the same for all liveries...the difference between the complex ones and the simple ones is how many colours and layers of masks you need. Regardless of the masks, it's all sprayed on by hand. As a result, for the blends and fades they just don't use a mask and spray it by hand. The same technique is used, for example, on the light blue "blush" on the latest Boeing house livery.
