  1. Boeing 757 kit

    Why no Aeroflot decal option then? Likewise their 737-800 and Il-76. Dave
  2. Cracking job there John. Love the very delicate exhaust staining on the horiontal tailplanes. Dave
  3. Thanks for that Jeff / pinky coffeeboat, the link worked fine. Even better, it showed a Dart Herald in the offing as well. I won't forget that! Dave
  4. Is it me having a 'senior moment', or did I once see some pre-production photos that showed the fuselage moulded in clear plastic (like their Yak-40 fuselage). Probably around the time when they showed it as being in British Midland's scheme, or was I dreaming that as well? Dave
  5. 1/72 Amodel Yak-42D

    Absolutely no problem! Dave
  6. A very fine job Martijn! I always thought that the colourful Air Holland scheme stood out at airports and is sadly missed. Dave
  7. Boeing 737 STGB

    Hi Ray, Yes, the word is that they are going to do a -700. I heard about it the day after I'd taped up a Zvezda -800 in preparation for shortening the fuselage. I'm waiting just in case, so I'm on hold for my Cimber Sterling -700. It's not the first time I've started a conversion, only to have a new kit come out. I chopped down a Revell A320 to an A319 when, you guessed it! Likewise chopping an MD-80 to make a MD-87, and now I've got the EE kit. Dave
  8. Boeing 737 STGB

    Wow! What seemed ages away is now just around the Christmas/New Year corner. I'd love to join in as well, especially as I've got plenty of 737's of different versions and scales in the stash. A quick check of my decal list reveals 80+ still waiting to be used, so it might take me a while to settle on which to pick. Maybe do one I've flown on... Dave
  9. Fokker F.28 kit

    I see that F-RSIN Plastic are releasing 1/144th scale kits of the Fokker F.28 at the forthcoming Telford show. Both the shorter fuselage 1000 and the longer 4000 in are shown in various schemes. I've always liked those little Fokkers, so I'm quite pleased. Question is, does the F.28 belong in the Classic or Modern section? Being as there are hardly any left in service, I chose classic even though it still seems fairly new to me. Dave
  10. Perhaps there's a clue with the blue plastic -the Russian Post operates the type in an all over blue scheme (including the wings!). Dave
  11. Revell Boeing 747 1/144

    Don't forget the -8 as well Dave
  12. Micro-Mir MD-11

    I remember using the top of a 'Tic tac' container, with the opening flap removed, taped onto my Revell 767 to protect the nosewheel leg a few years ago. Dave
  13. Donaldson International 707

    No, it is a resin replacement that fits in place of the clear kit part. http://www.contrailsmodels.com/Other_Products.html Dave
  14. Fokker F27, Air Anglia. 1:144

    'Bootiful', as they say in Air Anglia land (I'm a Lincolnshire yellowbelly myself) Dave
  15. Airfix 1/144 De Haviland Comet 4B

    This kit brings back happy memories for me -it was my first ever airliner build! Must have been about 45 years ago (heck!) after flying on a Dan-Air Comet. Yours is looking good already. Dave
