PAINT SHOP // Painting Time-lapse // Air India Manila Folder 777-300ER

29023 ratings | 7341706 views
This video documents the process that went into applying the Air India livery/gloss to the model 777 I'm constructing. The actual painting process took over a month, and there's a lot that isn't shown in this video, simply because there wasn't enough time (in the song). You might ask why I even bothered to "paint" on the livery, given how subtle it is—I didn't want to ruin the manila folder look with actual paint, so clear gloss seemed like a better option. It's hard to see under normal light, but at the right angles it's definitely visible.

All I can say is I would have never thought that office supplies could become such works of art I have so many paper model plans but no printer (yet), and man I wish I had the money to purchase one of those built. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome.

The colorless paint must be for some movie computer multi-layer special effect kind of thing. I'm betting the model body is just there to hold up the special paint which is all people will see in the end.

Booo- i thought you were gonna paint it! So you basically just used the 777 that you had already been working on for years, and just used that? But you wanted to keep it and continue working on it after the commercial, so you didn't even use real paint- just a clear coat so it wouldn't look any different..

Unreal. Your patience is staggering. Also, what an unprecedented amount of complaining in here. People had time to type a negative comment but didn't bother to read the description. No one forced you to watch the whole thing and you could have skipped to the end. Great video, lovely choice in music. I only wish some could appreciate this level of skill and craftsmanship. Well done.

Lol I thought you were trolling us the whole time, but I think the way you did it lends more to the fact that it is made out of paper, painting over it would have covered that up and hidden the beauty of the model.

Do You try use Blender for projecting Your model? There is nice add on called Export Paper Model. There You can model things in 3D, set thickness of paper to check if parts will fit, especially rings, and export it on A4. I did test with caliper, And I make there simple model of two rings. One was smaller and higher. Diameter is 9.87mm and second bigger but shorter 1mm. I measure thickens of my printable paper, and is around 0.1mm. I want to see if measurements in blender will fit with real paper model. I printed them, cut with this same tool what You use, glue them together, and shorter ring gowns around that higher. And i check if shorter ring going around bigger, will connect exactly in that same place. I am happy, because shorter ring meet exactly in that place and looks like is connected. Higher ring in program have 3.9mm but my paper have 3.7mm. I think for first testing time I cut it not so carefully as I should. High of smaller ring have designed 1mm and catted part have 0.9mm. Ass testing show, You could try use Blender for 3D modeling, and see how model will look before You use time to cut. Also when You learn use bones, then You can simulated moving parts and correct them before You print and cut. I also love modeling on paper, In the past I was using only models from shop, but they was not so accurate, most of times drawn by hand (Eah, very old projects from 1980) Now I am able to redesigned all air plain in blender and get very accurate measurements, to cut rounded shapes. GRATINGS, You Are My Hero!

I always draw things and never color them because it absolutely ruins it so I get what you did there.

The effect of the gloss under the flashlight looks amazing! Would have liked to see color, but still
Luca Iaconi-Stewart (1 month ago)
Me too, and I do think it would've looked cool in their full colors, but it would've overpowered the material and taken away from the subtleties.

Since no one's been answered so far, my question probably won't fare any better. I'm just really curious as to why, after doing all that great, meticulous taping, you chose a finish that couldn't be seen.
Luca Iaconi-Stewart (1 month ago)
I was going for subtle—I would've liked to paint it in full colors (and I did on this model: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiEiMoQWygg ) but felt it would've been too distracting and taken away from the details on the model. This can actually be seen from an angle, it's just not meant to be super obvious. A shinier gloss would've been nice, though... something more mirror/lacquer-like

... I think the subtle use of lacquer to suggest the air India livery instead of a crude full on paint job leads one to respectfully appreciate the magnitude of effort required to produce such an undertaking and yet at the same time reminds us of the artworks fragility.
