Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Greetings Wings 900, Like many of you, I'm always interested when an airline changes its livery. Sometimes for the better, but often for the worse. With my first "official" post, I'd like to submit "Who wore it better", a comparison of old and new liveries side by side. Since I am a big fan of Middle East airlines, I thought I would start with Kuwait. Although both triple 7's, there was no same -200 and -300 to in the 1/500 scale world. Personally, I like the new livery. But the old livery works really well on the 747-400. What say you?

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Sorry, this should have been posted in the normal 1:500 thread, not airports. Could the moderator please move to the proper thread? Thank you.

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Moved as requested! I have no favorite livery of the two; the old tail design combined with the new titles would be a best of both worlds scenario.

Also would love to see more of your airport diorama!

First of all great background and great pics.
I prefer Kuwait Airways new livery, fresh, smart, an evolution respect the "anonymous" old livery.

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

I agree with Charter, the new livery looks smarter. I prefer it.

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

For me, it is a tie. I like the fresh white fuselage and large graphic titles of the new livery, but the old tail is better. I would also comment that the large billboard titles would be best done in a large italicized font, which would create a sense of motion.
At any rate, this is a great topic! So many airlines could be covered.

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Like this one better, more classic cheatline (plus a classic plane).

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

The new one is nice, although I miss the "Airways" on the titles.
I like the old one, it looked great on the 747-400 and A300. I'll take the old one

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Nice idea!

The old Kuwait Airlines livery looks so dated that it can be called almost classical. The new one is not bad either but nothing very distinctive. So I would choose the old one.

Re: Who wore it better? #1 Kuwait

Like you, I only have these two Kuwait Airways models. I find both, the old and the new paintwork beautiful. I think it's like Lufthansa. From an old paintjob to a new one with lettering, painted side tail and the rest remains white. I actually want all the planes from Kuwait. The A320ceo, the A330-200 and the A340-300 in the old paintwork and the A320neo and the A330-800 in the new paintwork. The state machines A340-500 and 747-8 would also fit. As with Qatar, they have the airline's paintwork. So are in my Qatar fleet are two 747-8 of Qatar Amiri Flight.
