  1. Here's my Revell 1/144 BAe 146-200 finished as G-MIMA of Manx Airlines, using F-DCAL decals. This was my entry in the Made In Britain II group build, WIP thread is here
  2. Hi folks, Long time no post. Lots of stalled builds, so I tried something simple for a quick build and as a leaving gift to a colleague who is shortly returning to New Zealand. Zvezda 1/144 Boeing 787-9 kit with f-dcal decals. I figured there'd be tons of these on here, but surprised I couldn't find any. Kit is deceptively simple but very good. The engines, with separate fan blades are exceptional. The entire lower wing is a single piece moulding, significantly aiding the wing/fuselage join and the wing dihedral. The only downside are the overly shallow panel-lines, which all but disappear under paint and varnish. I replaced the landing gear with the Scale Aircraft Conversions white metal gear out of preference. The f-dcal decals are mostly silk-screen printed, with just the engine exterior decals and cargo doors on a supplemental laser-printed sheet. The silk-screen decals are exceptionally thin, like to curl up and stay put, so need some care, but survived quite a lot of abuse. They responded well to MicroSet and Sol without any adverse reactions. The rear fuselage fern is printed integral with the rear set of windows (aids positioning) but was challenging to get into position and remove wrinkles/air bubbles. Patience is most definitely the order of the day. Which I had run out of by the time I got to do the wing walkways. Oh, and to note, the kit decal windows do not fully align with the kit windows, so these need filling completely or one has to resort applying the windows individually. I found out the hard way. :-/ Paints were my usual Zero Paints white primer, white and black, AlClads metals and Alclad Aqua Gloss varnish, latter applied with a wide flat brush. On the with photos. Regards, Darren
  3. DC-6 SAS - withdrawn

    Now that the East of Scotland Model Show is over and my Donaldson International Britannia is well under way I’ve decided to start another build. Sticking with the propliner theme my second entry will be another Roden kit, the original "short" DC-6 in SAS livery using F-DCAL’s gorgeous sheet FD144-037S I’m using the “Independence” version of the kit rather than the standard Delta issue because it includes the Curtiss Electric propellors which are necessary for the SAS aircraft. They are noticeably different from the much more common Hamilton Standards. The box contents are entirely conventional... … the Curtiss props on the left As I’ve already said, the decals are gorgeous... The DC-6 is one of Roden’s earlier kits and isn’t to the same standard as the Britannia or VC-10. The plastic is hard and brittle and likely to be difficult to work. Generally the engraved detail looks good and it’s actually finer than the Brit although reinstating anything lost in sanding is likely to be a challenge. I’m not confident I’ll finish it before November (the Britannia will always take priority) but since I was going to build it anyway I thought I might as well add it to the Group Build. I’ve got some more work to do on the Brit and once that’s finished I’ll get the DC-6 underway.
  4. Revell A350-900: Finnair

    Finished this OOB except for decals and a scratch built antenna. Decals are from F-DCAL. Builds nicely with little fuss unless you are ham fisted painting it Special crumpled sky background for pictures Build thread here
  5. Let me just start with a warning : Now we've got that out of the way..... ....Ethiopian Airlines are due to take delivery of their first Airbus A350 next month but I couldn't wait that long. I finished off Revell's A350 with a mixture of F-dcal markings (FD144-684) and the kit's stencils : The standard 4x4 walkaround : Of course, the "with something else" pic just had to be with one of the A350's predecessors : I'm afraid I really struggled with this kit and it took far too long to complete. (Having said that, I managed to drag mine over the finish line before Trojan Thunder did (Come on Ray ! We're still waiting to see your A350 in Finnair markings ! )) Anyway, it's back to the bench now to continue work on yet another jet with no cheatline ! (This one has a story to it and a bit of a twist with the presentation, so stay tuned) Thanks for looking. mike
  6. Hello all, Here is my first topic, and it is about my last model, a B727 from the new Airfix kit. I used Continental Micronesia decals. I bought them on F-dcal, and I was satisfied by the quality. I did not pay a special attention to the accuracy of the model, thus I didn't make major changes on the plastic kit (to be honest I wanted to finish it rather quickly). Yet I know some details are not reproduced (on the wings and the gears). I chose to glaze the windscreen and the windows instead of filling and adding the decals. Only I didn't use the small Airfix clear parts, but placed plastic sheet and Clearfix. Here again you will notice it's not perfect (first time I try it). Continental Micronesia was founded in 1968 (as Air Micronesia) and ceased its operations in 2010, when Continental merged with United. It used to have routes to Hawaii, Asia (mainly, if not only, Japan) , Micronesia and Australia as well as it was island hopping. The paint job is done with brush for all colors except white, which is Tamiya Gloss White. I obtain a glossier finished by spraying a grey primer (Tamiya too) instead of a white one. The paint job "pattern" on the wing is done a little bit randomly because there wasn't many pictures on the internet. I had made the 3 Pitot tubes but my little brother broke them ... I hope you will enjoy. (I will probably prepare a diorama+backround for my next models ...) Cheers, Jean
  7. Concorde Prototype

    Hello, I've been looking at the available decal sheets for Concorde and the F-DCAL sheet for the UK prototype caught my eye. Apart from the smaller visor windows on the first two prototypes, are there any other notable difference between these aircraft the production ones? Many thanks! Andrew
  8. I bought this kit only a few days ago and im really happy with the progress, and the kit in itself. It will, when finished, wear the delivery colours of CCCP-65973: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Aeroflot/Tupolev-Tu-134A/0720882/L/&sid=bd50b80da3d101e77115dff9e924479c http://www.airliners.net/photo/Aeroflot/Tupolev-Tu-134A/0120071/L/&sid=bd50b80da3d101e77115dff9e924479c The decals i will use can be found here: http://www.f-dcal.fr/decals/product.php?id_product=1217. I did however, after getting this far, discover that maybe i should have waited with the pitot tubes until after i've added the decals as those pass right over them. --------------- This is the kit i prioritize, but i am also working on a Revell 737-200 with Air Inuit decals from V1 Decals and a Hasegawa MD-90 that i have yet to decide what livery it should wear. If anyone is interested in pics, just ask.
