Proposed New United Colorscheme

Fri Jul 14, 2000 7:47 pm

.. by yours truly.

Any comments? (Sorry if its so shabby, I did it in a quick second with Paint).

I thought green would be a nice touch because of the new interior "earthy" decor.

BTW, it's supposed to be a 747-400 for those who think it looks like the hunchback of mukilteo. Also, the blue is supposed to go from the top of the fuselage to just right above or below the nosecone. (I'd prefer the new scheme to have a solid-colored nosecone because of all the messy and mal-aligned nosecones nowadays).

Also notice the use of the new stlyized, contemporary, cutoff "U" on the tail...

Cheers

I kinda like it! but i think the light blue on the engines could be the dark blue on the fuselage but other than that,it is pretty good! but why would UA get a new scheme after they just introduced a new one 5-6 years ago.

I think that it is good except for the green on the tail. It would be better red.

I tried to model the new scheme after LANChile's (ah! love it!)...

United is rumored to be adopting a new scheme in light of: a) the merger, and b) more importantly, the new advertising campaign and marketing with U N I T E D font and cut-off "U"s...

The current scheme is from 93, so it is a bit young a 7 years old, and even though it is very professional looking, it just doesn't look contemporary and conflicts with the new UA marketing direction to boot.

Bacardi, that's might alright. Everyone's got their opinions.

Actually, it doesn't look too bad!

I really like the navy that you used on the top, and it was a really good idea to flip the dark/lighter colors so that the white is on the bottom. Engines should be the same blue as the fuselage, and I'm not too sure about the green on the tail, but other than that, it looks great!

interesting, but why would you want to change one of the best looking liveries in the business?

Revision 2

And yet another revision... this time with darker engines.

Thanks FLY! Glad you liked it!  

BTW, the winglets are supposed to be white.

... make that *intended* to be white. (just like the blue is intended to end either at the top or bottom of the nosecone so that the nosecone will be one solid nose color)

That last on is a great livery. It takes the best parts of United and US Airways liveries.

With red line on the top, UA will look Delta in new-new color scheme.

I have nothing against Delta new-new. But to see it on UA as well, that would be kinda overdoing it.

Another thought...

What about taking out the light blue box and the red stripe and placing an oversized, stylized "U" in the corner of the tail?
