      Has anyone done decals for the new southwest colors? I have found some specialty jets like shark week and such but not a basic scheme. Additionally, there was a conversation some time ago on what shade of blue the new colors use. Anyone figured out what color to use to paint her up?

      Thanks,

      Mark

      Someone on the Facebook Airliner Modeling group just finished one and said the decals were by 8A. A good color appears to be Gunze (GSI) Bright Blue.

      That is a nice looking Southwest 737-800! I would very much like to get a set of those when they are back in stock.
