  1. I bought a couple from 26decals at Telford last year - great price. I also picked up some decals from Nick Webb (Classic-Airlines.com). Very nice little kit. The Skyvan will be a test for eyes and steady hands.
  2. Judging by recent Eastern Express releases (negative comments else where accepted) this will be much better than the Doyusha kit. I've got their IL-18, Yak-42 and others and each one gets much better. The panel lines can be a wee bit wonky and inconsistent but overall they are nice. Hopefully they'll produce a full range of F-27. Also from the same source, EE seem to be releasing a Shorts 360 and Skyvan. All good news and very welcome. Jeff
  3. It's from Eastern Express who also intend to release an MD-87. Good news indeed.
  4. Deleted.
  5. Many thanks guys for the answers. Believe it or not, this is the first time I think I've read where the length difference was situated and is tying in nicely with the ongoing work in progress thread by Viking. Thanks. Jeff
  6. Pointless is a general knowledge quiz show, knowing each and every aircraft that flew/ fought during a certain conflict is specialist knowledge.
  7. OK, I'll change the DC-7 for a Minicarft DC-6 the Doyusha F-27 for Welsh Models vacform Second and possibly third 737 are from Airfix (maybe Eastern Express) the grey primed model at the right is either Authentic Airliners A300 or Braz A300 (but unless you've corrected the nose, it doesn't look like it). Sorry for the thread drift, I love seeing other people's in progress models! Jeff
  8. Nice idea with the tubing, I'll give it a shot on my next build. I reckon from left to right: 707 (Minicraft?) Trident 3 (F-rsin) DC-7 (Roden?) Britannia (Roden) BAC 1-11 (Authentic Airliners) DC-9 (Fly? AA?) F-27 (Doyusha) 727 (Airfix with flight deck transparency from Daco) 737 (Minicraft) 737 (Skyline) 737 (?) A319 (Revell) 737-800 (Revell but it's grey plastic...could be 737-400 from Skyline) L1011 TriStar (Eastern Express) 777 (Minicraft) Quite a nice line up.
  9. ^ me too.
  10. Nice scheme. I've often considered getting this sheet so seeing it on yours will make my mind up. One of the areas I've not been able to satisfactorily deal with are the exhausts, I want to create a "duct" look into the depths of the engine nacelle but am not really sure what to make it with. Maybe as it's on the underside it's not worth worrying about but it is one of those areas where improvement could be considered. Anyone any ideas? And where do cuts need to be made to covert it to the 700 series? Jeff
  11. Thanks John. I've got quite a few of these little kits. It only takes a some basic skills to improve, as you're demonstrating. Any thoughts on colours? Jeff
  12. So now they'll have to put up with people thinking it's Delta. Some bits I like such as the black strip round the windshield and well, that's about it really. It does have a kind of "retro" look to it of sorts as does the route map in the PDF document linked above. It'll probably grow on me. Decals are available already on eBay from rugburna (or 'er'?). Jeff
  13. I'll have a few please, Ray.
  14. Thanks Dave, I'm certainly still interested in reading about "these guys". I love receiving envelopes from Eastern Europe due to the huge number of stamps on them, though I think 29 is a record!! Your experience and that of speedbird has given me confidence to order from them. Thanks. Hopefully not drifting off on a tangent, I'm still working out how to pay Aerodeka. Some very nice sheets there... Jeff
