Phoenix Air Canada Boeing 787-8 New Livery 2017 (1/400 Scale)

Just picked up in Hong Kong.

Red on the tail needs to be brighter, but overall very nice.

Very nice but still looks like Delta cousin.

Re: the red on the tail being dull red.

A rookie model builders mistake. (Red over black).
Everyone who has ever tried it KNOWS a pale red is guaranteed

You must paint (or print) the red First in the sequence - over white or similar light 'primer' color. Then paint the black second - over (around) that.

Or if you insist, paint the dark color first. But then you must make two applications of the red feature. First in a light color. Then the red over that!
