  1. Ascensio Pegas decals

    Cristian, No, I haven't used them. I have designed a few decals myself for a local producer here in Australia, so I merely examined the Ascensio sheet to determine how they depicted certain livery elements. (Masks for the blue tail, optional masks or decals for the blue titles, etc)
  2. Minicraft 1/144 737-300 Magni Charters

    OK, getting started... There are 2 shortcomings of the Minicraft 737 kits, namely: 1) there is an alignment pin and socket visible in the engine inlet. 2) there is no main gear bay - you can see into the empty fuselage cavity. So, to fix the engine inlet, simply sand off the offending pin and socket using a small motor tool and fill the ejector pin marks. Here's a "Before & After" shot... To fix the missing main gear bay, I used some thin plasticine-type stuff pressed into the fuselage half cavity, then traced the shape to get the right contour for making my own main gear bay box. I then used these template shapes to cut plastic card pieces and glued them together. I have a few Minicraft 737s in the stash, so I'll get a colleague to make me some resin copies before I progress...
  3. Ascensio Pegas decals

    The white-on-grey parts are paint masks. As the blue tail needs to be painted, the white logo is provided as a mask. If you don't fancy trying to match your blue paint to the blue fuselage titles decal, then there is an optional mask for that too. A -300ER is externally identical to a -300. The differences are internal - mainly an extra fuel tank and some structural strengthening for the heavier weight.
  4. It has appeared in Hannants "Future Releases" section... https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/ROD334 Cheers!
  5. Here's hoping that Amodel follow up their J31/32 with a J41! Only other options are the 1/72 Welsh vac/resin or the 1/72 Space Models resin blank (travel agency style).
  6. G-DCIO British Caledonian DC-10

    The old Revell kit depicts the early engine variant of the series 10 & 15. The "splitter" was part of an external guide system for the thrust reverser cascades to run on. You can see it clearly here on the #2 engine: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/93/68/58/936858ddec6129825fdadc0d03e821bf.jpg A subsequent redesign eliminated them leaving the smooth conical exhaust instead that became the standard configuration from the series 30 onwards. The series 10 and 15 were retrofitted with them later on.

    Found a video animation of the Krueger Flaps - deployment sequence at the start and retraction towards the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LDLnLchkJE Cheers!

    I didn't draw these, they are from 8A Decals. (bottom-left of first photo)
  10. Here's my entrant: This is the release that incorrectly stated "-400" on the box when the contents are a -300. Haven't built anything in years, so should be interesting - for me anyway! Here's what I'm aiming for: Cheers!
  11. Printing decals

    Option 1: Print several copies of the yellow logo for each side and apply them layer-upon-layer until the opacity improves. Option 2: Get a screen-printed white copy of the logo to use under the yellow one. Option 3: Include the red tail area in your decal. (you may have to experiment to match the red to the rest of the livery)

    Seeing the close-up pic that Andrew has linked to, I can now see the white flecks that were mentioned. (My eyes are not as young as they used to be) So I concede that the base colour may indeed be an off-white or a very pale grey. My apologies, no bum-steer was intended.
  13. BA a319

    Funny, the article you link to also said its white! (6th paragraph) "The aircraft will be painted white with gold strokes of paint to represent the feathers." White will typically look pale grey when it is not in strong sunlight. (shadow effect) Also the doves that were traditionally released at the games were white, symbolising peace.

  15. BA a319

    It may appear pale grey in dim light, but it is in fact white. https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7372/27397501724_667dbc59a6_b.jpg
