  1. BAe 146-200 - Manx Airlines

    Found a sad pic here: https://smiliner.com/2006/02/ansett-bae-146s-broken-up/
  2. Trident question

    Art, Take a look at these: I have forgotten where I found them, - lucky I kept them! Cheers.
  3. Simply gorgeous Ian... ...those window decals and subtle weathering really bring it to life - well done !
  4. 1/144 Boeing 727-200 & 757-200 for RNZAF builds.

    Steve, the 727 (and some 707) model designation confusion lies with Boeing. With the first model, they were designated and certificated by their Customer Build number. e.g. 727-22 for United, 727-23 for American, 727-76 for TAA, 727-77 for Ansett, etc. With the advent of the -200 series, all original models were retrospectively (and informally) referred to as -100 series - but they were never re-certified as such. So, a United 200 series is certified as a 727-222, whereas a United "100 series" is still officially a 727-22 and not a 727-122. Clear enough? The -100 , -200, -300 etc. designations became standard with the 737 onwards.
  5. 1/144 Boeing 727-200 & 757-200 for RNZAF builds.

    Yeah, they've been on my "To-Do List" for a while now too. Other decal topics keep getting in the way!
  6. 1/144 Boeing 727-200 & 757-200 for RNZAF builds.

    Steve, The RNZAF never used 727-200s - they were 727-100s! (2 plus 1 spare parts plane) Easiest solution for that is the current offering by Revell (although the wheels are too big - Brengun make replacements) Airfix initially made a -100 kit, but the moulds were permanently changed to make the -200 kit. Germania 727-100 kit Brengun wheels Cheers!
  7. Canadian Department of Transport Viscount markings.

    Admiral, I found some large pic's of sister ships which show it a little better: https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/full_size_0294/1441765-large.jpg https://abpic.co.uk/pictures/full_size_0295/1443559-large.jpg Scott.
  8. B-N Trislander - underwing tanks

    Sorry I'm a bit late to this topic, but I did find a pic of the subject aircraft for all to see: Cheers!
  9. 1:72 Bristol 170 Freighter

    I found some box arts: source: Aeroscale UK Scott.

  11. Revell 747 questions

    Most panel lines on real aircraft are only visible up-close or when they start collecting dirt. A deep panel line on a model would scale out to several inches wide on a real plane - and who the hell would want to board a plane with those kind of gaps between the slabs of sheet metal? Each to his own, but I would fill them! Scott.
  12. A320-100

    Externally, it's just the wingtip fences that differentiate a -200 from a -100. Internally, the -200 had an extra fuel tank that increased range. Also, all 21 -100s built had CFM engines. Scott.
  13. doyusha / nitto lockheed l-1011 tristar 1/100

    Frankie, scroll down these pages for scans of the instructions... L-1011 is here: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10145532/10/0 DC-10 is here: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10013463/10/0 Scott.
  14. Boeing 737 STGB

    Hasegawa never did a -300. They did a -500. You will have to chop a -400 to get a -300! Plus I will throw my hat in the ring with this: Magnicharters 737-300 (1/144 Minicraft) I haven't built anything in years, so I chose something simple.
  15. Revell Embreaer 195

    The conversion drawing posted earlier is incorrect. Compared to the 195, the 190 is 1 window frame shorter at the front and 2 window frames shorter at the rear. Here's a corrected drawing: Scott.
