Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Do all of you know where I can find Air New Zealand repaint with registration number ZK-NQC for the combi version of TinMouse 737-200 version 2, please?? I cannot find it on Avsim or Flightsim

Thanks,

Aharon

Hey Aharon,

Sorry missed your post. I did a repaint for it back in the dark ages of 2011 :D in the CourierPost livery it wore for awhile, I know this isn't the one you are looking for, but it may be of interest. She also wore a plain white livery for awhile, and of course in AirNZ/NAC liveries too. Search for filename "b732-nqc-courierpost.zip" at flightsim.com

Deeknow,

Ha ha ha I already downloaded it few months ago while looking for ZK-NQC. Did NOT realize it was you who painted the yellow livery as flightsim showed different name of repainter while I did not realizen it was you.

If it is not too much trouble and if you or anyone can recall from memory, what cargo/courier routes did this yellow livery plane flew, please?

Smiling

Thanks for reply

Regards,

Aharon

I think it was more or less the same routes Airwork / ParcelAir operate these days from Auckland -> Palmerston North -> Christchurch and various combos thereof, along with the odd passenger charter

some useful info here if u haven't seen it already

and a bunch of photos around showing it positioned at mainly Auckland and ChCh

QC only operated Freight between Auckland and Christchurch. Passenger charters took it all over the place.

Great pics Dash - there are even more vineyards around Woodbourne now than there were then. :clap:
I see you are using jpgs now but they are still taking ages to load. I chop my pics down to 1290 wide before uploading to Post Image, and tell them not to resize. Works a treat, it does.

When you say QC, are you referring to yellow Courier Post plane, please? Forgive me for this stupid question :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

Thank you very much for route information and for SUPER AMAZING photos. Surprised me the plane was very clean and shiny without without dirt details!!! Am I correct that the photos show Woodbourne as departing airport and Palmy as arrival airport??

Well I cannot find any mistake or any missing detail in your yellow repaint. It looks great and it would be difficult and impossible to paint the engines super shiny.

Deeknow,

Sorry to bother you but I am wondering if you have chance to do what you said in your own words: revisit the yellow livery?

If you have no plans to do so, that is okay as I am satisfied with your original version of the yellow repaint. If you are still in WIP stage of your revisit to that repaint, please let me know so that I can wait patiently for your revision

Thanks,

Aharon
