I'm happy to share my first customs of airlines from Ireland and what's a better start than Aer Lingus? The first one is a 757-200WL, reg. EI-LBS, 1996 colors, named named "St Columbanus / Columbán", 1/500 scale. One of the four 757s from Aer Lingus, the real machine came from Finnair, like two sisterships EI-LBR and -LBT, with PW engines. However there's a single RR engined 757 registered EI-CJX. I really like the results, but the only donor so far is really hard to find.

The second is a 767-200ER, reg. N234AX, hybrid 2009 Omni Air colors, 1/500 scale. The real machine was leased from Omni Air, hence the pearlescent fuselage, they just painted the fin and engines, and added the logos and titles.

Well, I love the 757. The hybrid, though, it's outstanding.

I do so enjoy seeing the daily Aer Lingus A330.

The hybrid is certainly interesting.

Another one finished, the single 757-200WL with RR engines, registered EI-CJX. Was delivered new to Transaero on April 1994, first registered EI-CJX, then N160GE, flying until early 1999. Then, with reg. G-FCLJ, flew between April 1999 and November 2014 to several airlines such as Flying Colours, JMC Ryan International and Thomas Cook. Between January and July 2015 she flew for National, as N135CA. On November 2015 she was taken by ASL Airlines and reregistered EI-CJX, flying for Aer Lingus since May 2016.

Same here. These colors look so good on the 757.
