      Hi all,

      I want to build a Cathay Pacific B-744 pre delivery color scheme of 1989. I know it looks bright green under sunny skies and dark with overcast conditions. I'm hoping if Jennings can provide us with his superb illustration of the CX plane with the correct green colors. If I want to paint the green, does anybody know which green paint is the closest to CX green?? Any help is greatly appreciated 😃

      I used to have a Boeing paint sample of the CX green, but I lost it in the house fire.

      Hi Jennings,

      Are you able to come up with an illustration of CX B-744 delivery color scheme? I have a diecast model of CX B-742 in 1/200 scale so can I use that as reference?

      No, I have no reference other than photos available online. I had the original Boeing paint shop diagrams, but they were lost as well.
