Would any kind repainters please consider doing an Air Canada Jazz or Westjet repaint so we can do some short to medium haul flights in a Canadian livery?

I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

I am working on a 1990 'Green Tail' Air Canada Livery.  Shouldn't be much longer.

Would you consider a more modern version after this?  Thanks for your contribution in any case.

Yes, I am using the 1990 Livery Repaint as way to better learn the repaint kit since I just recently purchased TFDI's 717 product.  Once I have  the 1990 livery done, I am going to do the 2017 'Bandit Livery'.  I'll keep both templates so to that I can make more repaints for different variations of JAZZ, AC Express.

Wow, this is looking fantastic. Can’t believe this is coming so soon after my request.  
The new version and westjet would be icing on the cake....
Thank you so much.

The completed Air Canada repaint has been uploaded and is pending Moderator Approval.

I can't leave out Canada's other Airline.  Here's a little WestJet love.  I need to fix the registration since it is the wrong colour.  Other than that, the scheme sure looks posh on the 717.  Entirely fictional since WestJest doesn't operate any rear engine aircraft.

While reworking the registration, I decided the WestJet tail logo doesn't look correct.  I took a look at a few pictures from a WestJet Dash 8-400 and decided the white arrow cutting through the horizontal stab and appearing on top isn't true to the original livery.  So, I redid the vertical stabilizer livery.  I think everybody can agree from the attached pictures, this version looks better.  Unfortunately,  CYYC's sunny weather did not cooperate for the perfect shot.

I decided to step back o 1990-2000 and repaint one of Canada's forgotten airlines:  Canadian Airlines International.  This repaint has been tougher than all of the previous.  I had to use a Time Air Fokker F28-1000 photographs as a reference.  Aligning the rear belly stripes took a loot of patience.  They aren't perfect, but are acceptable.  I still need to adjust the aircraft model/made reference.  Finally, I am not sure about the tail logo.  Might give it a second thought after the other attention-to-detail items have been corrected.

I played around some more with the Canadian Airlines repaint.  I fixed the messed up stripes as they continued through the wing-to-body fairings.  Now the lines continue through like the pictures of the 737-200 aircraft I have seen.  It was a lot of work, but I am happy with the results. The grey cheat-line doesn't seem to be 'bold' enough and tends to be lost on the off-white skin.  Hard to be sure since my eyes are getting a little blurry after looking at dozens of photographs.  What do you folks think, does it look too light in colour?

I adjusted the gray stripe to give it a more 'Bluish' hue.  Photos of the 737-200 aircraft seem to elude to this shade as a better choice.  More importantly, it make the grey stripe much more visible and gives it a better contrast to the snow white fuselage skin.  What do you guys think?  I ma leaning to this being the final change and preparing for a public release.

Here is my next Canadian Livery.  I now step back to 2007 and go to Air Canada's Experimental unpainted livery that was applied to at least one 767.  Originally, I was going to do this scheme with a white body.  But, thanks to Mistrfiksit for uploading his metal texture master template to the downloads section of this forum, I can display this scheme in stunning detail like I wish.  It needs a couple of minor changes like the Star Alliance Logo being moved up and I am not sure if I like where the fin number is on the vetical stab.  But overall, these are minor changes.  

For those folks wondering, I am finished tweaking my Canadian Airlines scheme and will shortly be uploading it to the downloads section of this forum.
