The Gulf Air, Malaysia and Wanula special themed liveries look very complicated. Who paint those and how do they get them nicely fit on the aircraft: do you know which companies produce those painting masks/stencils?

The original 'Wunala Dreaming' scheme was painted on VH-OJB in 1994 by a group of artists who had been commissioned by QF to convert the artwork from an original painting. When VH-OJB was replaced with VH-OEJ in 2003 the aircraft was delivered from Boeing in an all red paint job and flown elsewhere in the USA (cant recall of the top of my head) for a repeat of the job but this time by a professional aircraft painting company.
737-838 VH-VXB 'Yananyi Dreaming' was painted at the Boeing factory prior to delivery.

Quoting Dan23 (Reply 2): 737-838 VH-VXB 'Yananyi Dreaming' was painted at the Boeing factory prior to delivery.
One thing I always wondered is when that airplane is due for its heavy check ( or what ever check that is done to remove paint ), will they repaint her in that scheme or just paint her up in regular Qantas colors?
