I can actually claim ownership of the tiger scheme, I put it on the aircraft ! I actually cut the shapes from spandex and put them on at the airshow as we weren't allowed to fly with it on. The tiger you see in the middle was a background on our computer desktop, I made that at the sqn prior to our arrival. That was projected onto a wall and I cut out the shapes, again it was stuck on at the airshow. The whole thing took twelve hours to put on, and was ripped off in about ten mins, before we flew back to Aldergrove ! We also had some fun at the spotters expense by changing our tail code on one side, IIRC we took 938 and we changed the code to 988. Only one person noticed it was different on each side.
