RAAF unveils new livery for Roulettes PC-21s

Recommended Posts

I don't know, looks pretty swish.

 

Anyone putting a bid in for one of the 60+ PC9's they're selling?

Personally, I think it looks terrible. (just my opinion).

 

The original colour scheme is as Aussie as, and one we have all come to know and love.

 

I wonder how much money was wasted on the design of the new livery?

Planey, someone probably got paid megabucks for that paint scheme which looks like it has been designed in pre school

That was my thoughts too Steve.

 

If there's megabucks in it, i'm heading back to pre-school to train as a highly paid livery-designer:ecstatic:

Not something even a first year design student should be doing; puts new meaning into home made.

come on you lot - lets hear something positive

 

I think the design will have a subliminal attraction to young recruits - the rearward triangular swish is obviously a future trend hairstyle

 

........................... can you please keep up with the times

Art is subjective; there's no right or wrong, but people are entitled to their own reaction to it.

 

In this case the Roulettes are marketing aerial views so far away that it will play no part for most people.

 

You can't even argue that our tax dollars have been misspent, because......art is subjective.

 

We can be reasonably sure though that we won't ever see one of these in Le Louvre.

Whatever they did, there'd be admirers and detractors. It's reasonably inoffensive to my eye. Wouldn't call it "edgy" though.

We’re not in the 80s any more, and that is a very 80s design. Having seen one in the flesh, it does nothing to enhance the lines of the aircraft. In fact the light grey of the FAC aircraft looks better.

my comment ................ its a joke at anyone's subjectivity

 

I think instead of triangles they should have hexagons or even circles

My comments about the 80s are tongue in cheek also..... The aircraft has curvy lines similar to the PC9, and needs flowing curves to complement it, the triangles don't enhance anything. Probably some ageing AirForce officer's idea of "modern".

The original idea was to build excitement in kids so that when they reached the appropriate age they poured into recruiting centres. We know what we like and dislike, but do we know what 8 to 18 year olds like these days?

 

I've had some earth shattering jolts with millenials in the past twelve months. Their ways of doing business are totally different to the ones I grew up with; some of the things they are doing work, others don't, but the ratio is much the same as it's always been.

Sure way to attract the kids Turbs .................................................. paint an Ipad on the side.008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif

 

That new paint scheme is unattractive, doesn't portray military and not sure if easy to see in the sky especially what these guys do. My Bulldog (ex UK RAF and original to the tee ) is still modern looking and I'm often told it stands out well.

There's one parked on the hardstand today in their normal colours. Looks much better, I think.

 

Not my pic, but same as this.
