  1. I don't think the wing body fairing is correct for a series-30 aircraft. It is correct for a -40 or -50. See http://www.airlinercafe.com/page.php?id=396 for a detailed description. Cheers, Ian

    Hi Michael, Nice finish! What did you use for the nmf? The Authentic cockpit windows really make a difference don't they? Looking forward to seeing more of your airliners. Cheers, Ian

    Just love this, what a great smooth finish! Can't wait to get started on my Zvezda 738. Cheers, Ian
  4. Trident dimensions

    I think I'm going to have to get that magazine! There are quite a few at £1.99 that I wouldn't mind getting. I often see them when they're released but I'm too tight to spend £5.99 on a magazine, but £1.99 that's altogether different!! Cheers, Ian
  5. Trident dimensions

    Thanks for all your searching bzn20! I always think that the research is just as rewarding as the actual modelling! Which is your Trident Special? I've seen a few 3 view drawings but none have the fuselage diameter. I've passed on the dimensions to Kurt I think he needed just the fuselage length, as far as I know the 114ft 9 in is an overall dimension including the tail bullet but he says he can now work that out. The Trident 2E won't be ready for about a year yet. I'm glad I found out AA will be doing the Trident 2 as I was soon going to cut down and convert one of my F-RSIN 3Bs! Cheers, Ian
  6. Trident dimensions

    Hi, Does anyone have any Trident 2E fuselage length and width dimensions for Kurt Lehmann at Authentic Airliners? It would appear he is possibly developing an 2E model which I'm very excited about! Cheers, Ian
  7. Alex you really have been busy! You need to let the rest of us catch up!! I agree with Tania, my favourite is the later livery but they're both great models though! Cheers, Ian
  8. Less detail but accurate shapes though. Quite dinky compared to all your wide bodies recently, must have felt strange working on them. I always think the MD-90 engines look oversized, it must have been like taking off in a rocket! Cheers, Ian
  9. Yes, I do like this one too Alex! I agree it was the most accurate TriStar around for many years along with their DC-10/MD-11 and A300s. This is one of my favourite liveries and I plan on finishing one in 1/144 some day. Cheers, Ian
  10. I like this one Alex, beautifully finished as ever but it's too clean!!! The wings and rudder hinge at least needs some dirt streaks and runs! You're certainly flying through these love liners aren't you, slow down or you might run out of kits! I've had a number of Hasegawa kits over the years but I've never finished any of them, I don't know why because they really do look good the shapes are spot on. Cheers, Ian

    What a great collection, I can see why Ron's wife wants to take them with her, a perfect memento. Ian
  12. Thanks Mike, so not a power tool then! Nice collection of DC-8s there, might have to start one of mine soon. Cheers, Ian
  13. Hi Mike, Like Dave I too missed out on this first time round. It's a gorgeously finished model of an unusual subject, well done, love it! I'd be interested to know what the red shape is on the logo? It looks like a power tool of some sort, but I can't imagine it is! Cheers, Ian
  14. ?????? Do you know something we don't or is this just wishful thinking!? I'd love a new Vanguard kit! Cheers, Ian

    Very smart..... and BIG Ray! Cheers, Ian
