      Hi Guys,

      Just wondering does anyone have access to the Boeing Colours for Air India B-777-300er?

      I'm thinking its not a regular white but more cream colour. 26 decals reccommends gloss ivory

      I had considered Tamiya TS-7 Racing White

      Thanks for any info

      Cheers

      I'm fairly certain the answer to your question is "no". Boeing employees are prohibited from even accessing customer paint specs from their company computers unless they have a specific reason to do so related to their job. Accessing, downloading, or distributing them is a fireable offense.

      Hmmmm

      I suspected that J.


      Anyway any ideas on what colour white to use?

      I wonder looking at photos it seems the same white as used by British Airways. No any cream or Ivory........

      Hi Andrwe
      According to The Air India site the fuselage is Ivory in colour:

      I had the same question, (owning the great 26 decals as well) and having been close to an Air India Dreamliner recently in Melbourne, this ivory color seemed to have some metallic / pearlescent finish, almost similar to the effect on the new Etihad colors. Can anyone confirm that observation?

      It might be a very complicated color to deal with.

      These new colors of Air India really look stunning, I want to go for a 777-200LR.

      Cheers,
      Christian

      Never thought to look at the Air India website. Thanks Ray

      I think I'll mix Tamiya Pure White and Racing white. Somewhere in the middle mix.

      As I say it'll look good from far but far from good.

      Cheers
