Hi everyone,

 

Although there are many great repaints of Concorde out there, there's always been one we're slightly lacking in and it's perhaps the most vibrant one ever flown. I am of course referring to the famous Pepsi Concorde, I saw someone had made a version of it back in 2011 but as far as I know this person never released it so I thought I'd create my own version of it which hopefully is a more accurate version... I've just uploaded it to the Downloads section and I've put it up on Simviation. Here's some more info on that livery

Hope you like the paint :)

Cameron, do you feel up to the challenge of doing a Singapore Airlines livery? It is my understanding that SIA had a Concorde in their livery at one point in the late 70's or early 80's.

 

My primary flight area is in the Pacific, and with all the ocean around, and considering the cities are very highly populated, I feel it is one of the best places in the world to fly the Concorde.

But I do feel a bit weird flying a BA or AF Concorde from Singapore-Tokyo or Tokyo-HK when a Singaporean aircraft would be a lot more appropriate.

Hi James,

I don't think that would be a problem.. Give me a few days and I'll see what I can come up with. Atm I'm just finishing off an update I'm doing for G-AXDN that shows her as she currently looks in the IWM Duxford, including her "graffiti" which was added by the engineers while she conducted test flying for the Concorde programme, I've just got to finish the wings then I'm all done.

Thanks for all feedback guys :) I was planning on doing the underside of her port wing so that it shows the stripes of black paint added to monitor ice build up during anti-icing trials but the design of the paint kit means that certain surfaces are "connected" should we say. Ie. By painting that area black I'm also painting the main undercarriage doors black and there's no way to fix this so the stripes will have to stay off.. I'm almost done, just having a play about and adding a few more emergency ejection doors ;) 

after that I can turn my attention to your Singapore Airlines livery!

The repaint has just been uploaded to the download section and to Simviation so it will probably be available tomorrow. I've borrowed the basic textures originally done by Bigkeeper and customised by Jonathan Fong so thanks for him for allowing me to do that.

I've transferred the writing from that original copy onto a clean sheet so the plane will look "cleaner" and I've saved the textures as HD DXT5. This version should resemble the aircraft as she looks like now at the IWM Duxford. Also added is the graffiti found on the nose of DN, added there by engineers during trials in the seventies. A summary of these trials can be found below;

- At the bottom you've got the wind up Tangerine painted on to mark intake trials at Tangier,

- Moving up there is a sticker to mark icing trials in Nairobi for tropical icing tests in 1975,

- The one above was placed on after the icing trials in 1974 and Miss Moses Lake was painted on after she stopped at Moses Lake for more icing tests for her intakes. On the way she stopped at Bangor in Maine where she set a new record for an east-west crossing of the North Atlantic. This is commemorated on the right of her fuselage under the MAINEiacs sign on a ribbon which has the date and times of the flight.

- Under the captain's window there's again another sticker that marks the occasion on which DN set an altitude and speed record for Concorde at that time. The flight reached 63,000ft and Mach 2.23, the altitude record was later topped by G-BBDG.

You'll also notice the ejection chutes added under the aircraft, one of which can be opened by pressing the alt-tab-number combination assigned to that door although luckily the chutes were never opened! Hope you like the paint :)
