  1. This any good? https://www.airport-data.com/manuf/Handley_Page:5.html
  2. It certainly does. It sits amazingly high by comparison. Incidentally, all that's needed now is for the 'other' four-engined legend to complete the line up. Any plans for it?
  3. That's interesting. I've not seen that pic before and didn't realise the Aussies even used the Valiant; I don't remember reading about it in 'Valiant Boys' so thanks for the pic and link
  4. That really is beautiful modelling. I thought your Stirling was terrific and couldn't be beaten but now I'm not so sure!
  5. These are good points. One of the problems that existed when creating liveries or corporate identities back in the day was, while it was straightforward enough to choose a Pantone colour (and Pantone was the colour reference system) finding a close CMYK match was often difficult, so you'd choose something close. But it was often slightly different. Finding a corresponding RAL or BS colour was often more difficult still and so there could be another 'close' match. Things aren't really much better nowadays either; Pantone has largely lost its relevance because printing has mostly become digital
  6. I think I might have found something. I can't locate the Pantone colour (nor a RAL equivalent) , but I'll stick my neck out and call the CMYK values at: Blue: C 100 / M 86 / Y 38 / K 33 Red: M 96 / Y 38 If you print these out it might help you to match the paint colour. Fingers crossed!!
  7. I think those are the brand guidelines for the later livery designed by Landor. The red might be correct but I'm pretty sure the Negus blue was darker.
  8. I might have the original colour references somewhere. Leave it with me for a bit while I trawl through my stuff?
  9. That's good news Rich. Been wondering what happened to this!
  10. Hi Dennis I've buddied up with someone who prints decals...very nicely too ... and he can print white. I'll PM you with the details.
  11. I suppose it depends on how much you want to pay for it. There are some lovely builds of it on here, so it can be made into a cracking kit.
  12. Yay, I remember Mecanorma. And Letraset! Once, when I was young, I typeset a complete full page press ad with it, in paragraphs, at 2.00 in the morning as it had to be ready for the following day. Working into the night, and through it, was a regular occurence in those days and believe it or not I still look back on that time with some affection even if the pressure eventually did take its toll! I'm happy to do the BA lettering for you. I have the graphic experience, the kit and the time, especially as we're all supposed to be locked away at the moment so it's not a problem.
  13. I began my working life as an apprentice printer and even then, type was still sometimes set by hand (I have my old typesetting tools in the attic somewhere). I remember only too well what happened when someone dropped a case of type...and the troubled time of putting it all back again if it wasn't damaged!
  14. Here you go...a present for you drawn in Plantin (if it's not too late). Take a sceenshot of it and you should get a .png All the best
