Re: United Airlines "Evolution" to Globe Livery released

For the most part I like it... Though there seems to be something "missing" and I think I know exactly what that is.. Take the dark blue wavey cheatline and add another light blue, wavey cheatline just above it to make it two-tone. Perhaps widen it slightly. That.. would change everything....
