Thank goodness the classis Air Force One paint scheme is now SAFE.  Will not change.

Whew

.....That Raymond Loewy paint scheme is a true classic design.

Agreed, it's a great relief. That paint scheme proposed by T was a travesty, and UGLY.

It has been said that in all these years Raymond Loewy's paint scheme has not been changed because it cannot be improved upon.

A little OT but I just read online that the new Air Force One currently scheduled to be delivered sometime in 2024 will be based on the 747-800 design even though Boeing is no longer supplying 747s.  I suspect the four engine approach makes a lot of sense as part of the security for that type of an aircraft. 

Maybe the GE ET44c4 would have made more sense to paint this scheme on.  Only 4 traction motors on that locomotive.  Sorry that was not as punny as it could have been.

As I already have UP 4141, I decided to pass on the AF1 locomotive.  But that yellow bonnet SF locomotive under it just got ordered by me.

Speaking of ordering, when I clicked on add to cart, it took me right to PayPal checkout.  There was no account creation for the Metca store.  Is this normal?  How will they know where to send my locomotive to without mu address, or how to keep me up to date on orders without my email?

Yes, that's normal.  METCA uses the  PayPal checkout system, so there's no METCA store account to create.  When you take the next step in the checkout process, your PayPal shipping address and email will be sent to us, or if you don't have a PayPal account, you will be prompted to provide that info.

If any questions, feel free to reach out to me.
