Tue Jan 18, 2005 5:33 pm

...for design agencies and graphic designers? The Airbus A380, world's biggest passenger aircraft, wil be definately a challenge.

Many A380 livery designs can be seen via Modified Airliner Photos at

It won't be a headache for a designer. It will however be a headache for the guys who have to paint it. Espcially is the livery is intricate such as the Qantas 744ER Wunala Dreaming

However when I heard about this aircraft when it was orginally painted on a 744 it used stencils.

The A380 which has been painted for the presentation took 9 days to paint, being painted 24 hours a day and using something like 90 painters.
