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?

I was wondering this myself. Great topic.

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.

Looks like the answer is lots of time and lots of skilled people.

Here is a video of a WN 737 being prepped with a special livery. Halfway through is when the plane enters the paint shop

Here is an EVA Air A330 being prepped with a Sanrio Hello Kitty theme. While not as complicated, the video shows the work being down as opposed a time lapse.

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?

FYR, It's an A330-200. BR has never flown the A340.



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

I have thought about that too.
VH-VXA has already been repainted in the new QF livery so -VXB mustn't be far away from having its turn.
