Am I the only one getting tired of hearing about Peter Max. Is it simply because the scheme is named after the guy who designed it? It's a special scheme like the dozens of others out there now. Perhaps one of the nicer ones, but these Peter Max threads are getting a little out of control. Stay tuned for the ANA Pokeman thread, the Air New Zealand Lord of the Rings thread (if they still have those), the Virgin Anniversary thread, the JAL World Cup thread, the Lufthansa Retrojet thread, the Air Canada Free Spirit thread, the Qantas Wunala Dreaming thread....I could go on.

My 2 cents.

Nope, your not the only one, there are a bunch of people out there, but I can't figure out how it's out of hand. Were a group of people who are interested in the life of an aircraft, and decided to choose a well known livery so it's easily distinguishable. There's only one thread at a time about it... and we only make a new one when my modem dies because it can't be loaded because it's too big. (180 replies or so.)

Were sorry you don't like it.

I'm not sure if you're refering to the plane itself or just the thread. For the record, I like the Peter Max design. It's a nice aircraft, and I saw it in AMS a while back. I didn't know the history of it like I do now, but I can say it looks better in person. I had trouble understanding the fascination about this particular aircraft when there are so many unique schemes. However, when you say it's the day to day life of an airliner that is the interest, and you've just picked this one, I understand that totally. I myself have always been interested in the routings of aircraft and where they fly in a given month. Good explanation!  bigthumbsup

Post #3 -- #5 A discussion between me and SwissER about a project regarding the PM aircraft.
Post #6 Someone Complaining about the tread
Post #7 A responce to post #6 explaining his questions asked.

And that's just the first 8 replies! It seems to me were having a discussion about the topic stated in the thread starter, just like any other thread here in the Civ Av forum. Again, maybe i'm just kinda dull, but i don't understand the problem. Sorry!

You're free to use your mouse at will, and click or not-click on the topic. The fact that you clicked, read and posted a reply, only says that you like to rant to feel important.

If you're truly sick of these threads, you would simply skip it and let everyone interested in this aircraft routings read and reply in peace.

Howdy all from FRA,

Glad to see the new thread started... and yeah, we always have to expect the few people who want to gripe because they have nothing better to do.

Just talked to my g/f, she is in EWR right now, about to get on EWR 50 FRA, and I get to run to the airport in the morning to pick her up.

IAHCSR, by all means, keep the wonderful reports of the whereabouts going, I can only hope that 014 (aka MAX, to keep on topic  Wink )will run FRA 51 EWR 51 IAH on 5/24.  pray 

Regards to all!

Question regarding Peter Max: N77014 being a T7, it seems to me that P.M. only visits about 7-10 airports (and I did a little re-reading thru the previous threads to count). Granted, these airports are spaced literally across the globe, but my question is this: Would it not be more reasonable to have a special livery on a smaller type (say 737)? I know it wouldn't be able to operate outside the mainland U.S. of A., however it would be able to service more than ten airports.

Just a thought I have been pondering since I started reading the Max threads. Keep up the good work, and pay no attention to the nay-sayers... They DID take the time to read the post and THEN gripe about it. haha.

"Reasonable" was not what they were after .. The 'art'work was commissioned for the New York City 2000 millennium celebration. Exactly who, CO or NYC, paid Peter Max for the work I do not know. But they wanted the biggest 'canvas' CO had so as to provided the biggest impact on all who see it.

I'am a very expierenced model maker doing it right now all from scratch and I can assure you it is the hardest project I've ever done!

For the ones who want to know only about the 777, you can stop reading now!  Wink

What's special about Peter Max?
Off course modern expression of art is simply more a way for the general public of damn I like it or Damn thats childish!It is off course true and your opinion is indeed very well on topic and interesting to reply!

Peter has a way of explaining his work with a kaleidoscope, you know that funny tube that changes colors and reflections and shapes constantly!
He uses the basic colors to form a multi creative pallet that dazzles your eyes when looking!Very bold off course!

He paints very patriotic items like the statue of liberty, capitol, the stars and stripes, and like almost every person, he has a soft spot for NYC.

One of his most known works is the liberty and I personally like it very much,




For the ones asking who he is,
This is Peter Max's Biography,

Peter Max is a multi-dimensional creative artist. He has worked with oils, acrylics, water colors, finger paints, dyes, pastels, charcoal, pen, multi-colored pencils, etchings, engravings, animation cells, lithographs, serigraphs, silk screens, ceramics, sculpture, collage, video and computer graphics. He loves all media, including mass media as a "canvas" for his creative expression.

As in his prolific creative output, Max is as passionate in his creative input. He loves to hear amazing facts about the universe and is as fascinated with numbers and mathematics as he is with visual phenomena.



"If I didn't choose art, I would have become an astronomer," states Max, who became fascinated with astronomy while living in Israel, following a ten-year upbringing in Shanghai, China. "I became fascinated with the vast distances in space as well as the vast world within the atom," says Max.



Peter's early childhood impressions had a profound influence on his psyche, weaving the fabric that was to become the tapestry of his full creative expression.



It was a childhood filled with magic and adventure, an odyssey the likes of which few people have had, artists included.

European born, Peter was raised in Shanghai, China, where he spent his first ten years. He lived in a pagoda-style house situated amidst a Buddhist monastery, a Sikh temple and a Viennese cafe. And yet, with all that richness and diversity of culture, he still had a dream of an adventure yet to come in a far-off land called America.


From American comic books, radio broadcasts and cinema shows, young Peter formed an impression of the land of Captain Marvel, Flash Gordon, swing jazz, swashbucklers, freedom and creativity.



But the American adventure was far in the future. In the decade to follow, Peter would discover many other fascinating worlds that fanned the fires of his imagination.

At the age of ten, Peter and his parents traveled across the vast expanse of China to a Tibetan mountain camp at the foothills of the Himalayas. Then they journeyed 9,000 feet up to a beautiful, white-turreted hotel in a mountain paradise that seemed like Shangri-La.



After their return to Shanghai, the family left on another voyage of discovery, around India, the continent of Africa, and Israel, where Peter studied art with a Viennese fauve painter. It was in Israel that young Peter also developed a love and fascination for astronomy.




In 1953, Peter's family emigrated to America after a six-month visit to Paris. Though it was a relatively short stay, Peter enrolled in an art school and absorbed the culture and art heritage of Paris. At the age of sixteen, Peter realized his childhood vision and arrived in America.



After completing high school, he continued his art studies at The Art Student's League, a renowned, traditional academy across from Carnegie Hall in Manhattan. Here, Peter learned the rigid disciplines of realism and developed into a realist painter.



When he left art school, Max had become fascinated with new trends in commercial illustration and graphic arts, from America as well as Europe and Japan. He decided to try his hand at it and within a short time, he won awards for album covers and book jackets, which combined his own brand of realism with graphic art techniques.


Max also admired the work of contemporary photographers such as Bert Stern, Richard Avedon, and Irving Penn, which led to his photo collage period, in which he had captured the psychedelic era of the mid '60s.



As the '60s progressed, the photo collages gave way, to his famous "Cosmic '60s" style, with its distinctive line work and bold color combinations.



This new style developed as a spontaneous creative urge, following Max's meeting with Swami Satchidananda, an Indian Yoga master who taught him meditation and the spiritual teachings of the East.



Max's Cosmic '60s art, with its transcendental imagery captured the imagination of the entire generation and catapulted the young artist to fame and fortune.



Max was suddenly on numerous magazine covers, including Life Magazine, and appeared on national TV. Max's visual impact on the '60s has often been compared to the influence the Beatles had with their music.



In the 1970s, Max gave up his commercial pursuits and went into retreat to begin painting in earnest. He submersed himself in his art for several years, and was only induced to come out of retreat on occasion through special commissions by the Federal government agencies: the U.S. Border murals, the first 10¢ U.S. postage stamp, and projects for the Federal Energy Commission.



For July 4, 1976, Max created a special installation and art book, Peter Max Paints America, to commemorate America's bicentennial. It was the year Max also began his annual July 4th tradition of painting the Statue of Liberty. In 1982, Max painted six Liberties on the White House lawn, and then personally helped to actualize the statue's restoration, which was completed in 1986.

In the years that followed, Max developed his new atelier, with a primary focus on paintings, mixed media works and limited graphic editions. Of the thousands of requests that came in for posters, Max was drawn to those that synchronized with his own concerns: environmental, human, and animal rights.



He began a series of works called the Better World series, and created a painting called "I love the World," depicting an angel embracing the planet, inspired by his backstage experience at the Live Aid concert.



In 1989, for the 20th anniversary of Woodstock, Max was asked to create world's largest rock-and-roll stage for the Moscow Music Peace Festival. Soon after the festival, in October, 1989, Max unveiled his "40 Gorbys," a colorful homage to Mikhail Gorbachev.

Prophetically, a few weeks later, communism fell in Eastern Europe and Max was selected to receive a 7,000-pound section of the Berlin Wall, which was installed on the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Intrepid Museum. Using a hammer and chisel, Max carved a dove from within the stone and placed it on top of the wall to set it free.




In 1991, Max's one-man retrospective show at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersberg drew the largest turnout for any artist in Russian history. Over 14,500 people attended!



As a painter for four former U.S. Presidents (Carter, Ford, Bush and Reagan) in 1993, Max was approached by the inaugural committee to create posters for Bill Clinton's inauguration. He was later invited to the White House to paint the signing of the Peace Accord.

Max has always been ready to apply his creative talent to important global events and has produced posters for many such events, including Summit of the Americas, Gorbachev's State of the World Forum, and the United Nations Earth Summit, for which he had designed a series of twelve stamps that became the best-selling stamps in U.N. history. For the U.N.'s 50th anniversary, Max produced an installation of fifty paintings in different color combinations of the landmark United Nations Building.



A lover of music, Max has been designated Official Artist for the Grammys, The 25th Anniversary of the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Woodstock Music Festival.



In the sports arena, Max has been the Official Artist for five Super Bowls, The World Cup USA, The U.S. Tennis Open and the NHL All-Star Game.

Always an optimist, Max sees a fabulous new age for the new millennium, filled with enormous possibilities. He also sees a need for a greater responsibility to our planet, and he is ever ready to serve as the "Global Artist."

I have four nieces aged 2 - 5: Give them a model airplane and each a can of spray paint, and I guarantee you'll get something similar to what is on this CO 777 - What's all the fuss about?

I'll make a deal with you, when they paint their own 777, we'll make a thread about that acft too, sound alright?  Yeah sure

Quoting APFjoker (Reply 30):
Would it not be more reasonable to have a special livery on a smaller type (say 737)?

I have thought it would be cool to have a little "Mini" PM running around the US. That would be cool!

I have been wondering about this myself ..  scratchchin  I've yet to find anyone who has access to a MX schedule for that Machine. There are only so many hours the thing can fly before a MX check MUST occur ..

I believe I have asked that question before, just can't remember when!
How in depth is the MX check? or maybe I should ask this in Tech/Ops...

"Upgraded" plastic kits, wich means accurate dimensions and every detail found on the real bird, all in scale 1/144.
The Max model even recieves real home made fan blades according to GE plans!
Please advice that It is not allowed to discuss models on this forum, if you require more info about the PM model or if you have a wanted project, you can contact me anytime!

And so it seems that it's not yet left TLV back here to EWR. Rode 015 back from FRA today, who knows what a/c to IAH in a few hours. At least I'm back in-country.
