Q300 Livery painting masks

Portfolio

The Task

Create painting masks for the new Air New Zealand livery for the Q300 aircraft.

Patterns for painting masks

Distorted shapes created on 3D CAD surfaces to be cut from paper and applied to the actual Q300 aircraft for painting.


As 3d surface models were not available we created the surfaces from blueprints, having the suraces we projected the new livery onto the plane. The painting masks were then un wrapped from the surface allowing the distorted shapes to be cut from paper and applied to the actual Q300 aircraft for painting.
