Parcel Air repaint

Postby Splitpin » Sat May 25, 2019 10:28 pm

I found a nice repaint today on flightsim.com for ZK-PAT, buts its for the PMDG 800/900 model...with the 700 upgrade whatever.

I went on their site, but there's no way I'm paying 50 something USD for the base model , and then another 25 or so for the upgrade :angry: who do they think they are!
So, my question is this : Is there a good 737 model flying about, that is realistically priced, if not free ...with a Parcel Air paint.

I know PAT isn't a 700, but its the only paint I could find.

LLOLL LOL LOL

Since the new banner of Parcel 734 and its pilot appears on NZFF forums, I always want to have that repaint so that I can recreate forum member SA227's real world routes!!!

The best hope to get Parcel Air repaint is to place repaint request on "repaint request" subforum of HJG forums for freeware Vistaliners 737-400 series.

If you want, I can put repaint request there for you or do you prefer to do by yourself?

Splitpin,

HJG had finished painting Parcel Air on Vistaliners 737-400 cargo model base but it is with registration number ZK-PAQ and without red squares on cockpit windows meaning it is not ZK-PAT as shown in NZFF banner last month.

However, I have on your behalf put in the HJG forums another request for ZK-PAT with red squares on cockpit windows in hope HJG would agree to do this too.

Meanwhile the registration number ZK-PAQ without red squares on cockpit windows will be available for download whenever HJG decides to upload that livery. They usually announce new downloads every quarter of the year and sometimes offers surprise new downloads between 4 quarters of the year.

Hope that is ok with you.

Regards,

Aharon

The red around the cockpit window is on the starboard side only on each aircraft

Thanks Dbcunnz

Good to know. However, HJG's new Parcel Air repaint with registration number ZK-PAQ does not show on HJG preview screenshot the red square on cockpit window or on as you called starboard side. Thanks for correct my technical aviation term. Did not realize it has to be called starboard side window.

By the way, what is the purpose of red square, please?

Just to confirm, the starboard side means the right side. So in this case, the co-pilot’s cockpit window

Boeing call it the left / right number 2 window. The reason for it being red is that the right hand one can be opened from the outside, which has 2 benefits:

1) if the captain has left his keys at home we can still get in :D
2) in the event of an accident the F/O can be rescued first. Which is only fair as he/she could possibly still have a career after the subsequent court of enquiry :P

Smiling :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Let's hope HJG would honor my request for Splitpin! If HJG does not honor my request, I am afraid one of you NZFF forum members who have painting talents would have to modify the repaint by adding red square and changing registration number on the repaint.
