  1. Boeing Gulf Air 747-600

    Boeing never developed a twin body 747 but this did become a 1/20th scale model at the 1996 Farnborough airshow and go for wind tunnel testing. this is more a what might have been than complete what if. anyway while this didn't see full scale it was just one of many design studies that slowly morphed into the 747-8.
  2. Well done on a superb model! I chickened out and sold mine as I couldn't decide whether to leave it open or closed
  3. Boeing Gulf Air 747-600

    A long time ago on a modelling forum far, far away I started a project I am determined to finish and due to me having trouble posting pictures on said forum I decided to bring this project across to where all my other crazy ideas (they just might work!) are. so to begin the 747-600 if built would have been the longest 747 ever at 279 feet long with a wingspan of 250 feet. This means stretching the fuselage by 100mm with a 40/22/38mm split and the wings by 48mm each. As you can see I have elected to keep the stretch to a minimum by removing as little as possible from the SUD and upper section while still achieving the same stretch as the first time below hopefully I will start assembling the two sides of the fuselage and get some pics with my standard 747-400 for reference. A long time ago I decided to build a 747-700 as well but I must admit (defeat) that I have come to my senses as that is not going to happen (unfortunately). But i am now building a (poss. Thai Air) 747-8i and a Cargolux 747-8F to go with my old school Thai Air 747-400 and Gulf Air 747-600.
  4. Superb Tristar! I have just bought one and it comes with this setup for the tail mounted engine
  5. Spitfire PR.25

  6. Gyrfalcon GR.1

  7. Falklands war Tomcat

    Superb job! If memory serves me right in 1982 the Americans offered the loan of a carrier but Mrs. T. said no. Again, one of those 'if only' aircraft.
  8. Way more than you probably wanted to know

    Firstly welcome aboard fellow returnee! . All the best with the surgery. Nice BF109 and all with a FAA fascination find themselves in good company here (plenty of ex-FAA personnel to quiz here). And expertise and experience in decals you could be very useful!
  9. Excellent work! Like the decals too
  10. Revell 747 questions

    When I go to Halfords, apart from gloss white what other colours should I get for my 747s?
