You design the S-1 Swift!

Post by Alpha Star » Tue May 10, 2016 9:46 am

As you know I fly the S-1 Swift glider at airshows here. But usually every year it has a different livery. Sometimes a different livery for each show.
I am looking for designs for this years S-1 Swift.
So get MS Paint or Photoshop open, and start designing. The winning design will be put on the glider. If there is more than 1 winner, I will do a mashup of both!

Heres the base:

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

This was my shot.....

explanation for the theme....(a bit patriotic to YSFHQ :lol: , anyway):

(FYI: i am not a painter :D , so not good with Paint....and i do not have photoshop.....)

1. the YSF Flag goes on the tail, as though it is fluttering with the wind (flag is rough sketching...could not make that fluttering part nor could i add it on the tail...i will try and reupload on this post :) ) and 3/4th of the YSF logo is visible on the Aircraft.....

2. the YSFHQ logo goes on top and bottom of the wings, i would have prefeered to place it very close to the wing tips but space and skill did not allow me to....

3. The YSFHQ colours flying on the fuselage....

4. and as i suppose, the smoke comes from the wingtips right?....so i just gave the wingtips and elevator tips a solid black (that is how it is supposed to be seen :lol: )

5. and a small grab from USDF aircrafts, ............... pilots name comes on the fuselage below the canopy...

I kinda felt like this paint job reminded me of something while I was making it, and then I realized the colors make it look like a Black Eagles S-1... But oh well, still looks cool... THE 3 STARS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ILLUMINATI I SWEAR

Anyway,... this is my favorite...

How can you guys color the design? :)

The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

I am looking to make this paint scheme for the glider in the next few weeks. If you have any more ideas post them, no matter how good, or bad they are, I want to see them!

Some of these designs might take some time, so I am giving everyone a deadline. :P
Monday 23rd May 6:00PM GMT. Get your designs in before then, and you might see yours at the next show.
