BalairCTA Livery Question

Thu May 08, 2003 4:57 am

To all:

I am currently building an MD82 kit and want to use a set of Brazilian decals
which I bought that contain markings for a BalairCTA ship. The wings appear to be yellow. Unfortunately, the instructions do not contain a planform view which would tell me the extent of the yellow. I searched the photo index and have seen lots of great shots, but none which actually show the entire wing plan.

Can anyone help?

Thanks for the info. I finally found a photo of a BalairCTA A310 which indeed shows the wing to be ALL yellow w/ silver leading edges. Amazing that they would do that as it had to be expensive to maintain. Apparantly they had less issue with painting yellow than I do...thinning, sanding, touch-up, ugh.

BTW, I like the list of a/c you've flown in that's contained in your profile. I should do the same someday. The list would be rather less modern (Convair 440/580, DC8, BAC1-11, ect).

Thanks again,
