  1. Really nice job and a stylish british livery from the past , well done Cheers Michael.
  2. Hello sorry about any confusion about AA decals, the web address is , AUTHENTIC-AIRLINER- DECALS.DE there is a large range available and I think most airline modellers seem to use them, they definitely enhance the finished model. Cheers Michael.
  3. Hi everyone,just finished this Court line 111, one of my favourites from way back, brings back memories of many sunday afternoons spent in the viewing area at Luton watching them, It would be lovely to hear those Speys roaring again. This was my first all resin kit and was pleased that it was quite a trouble free build. The decals are from 26 for the livery and AA for the windows. Cheers Michael.

  15. Hi everyone, this build was inspired by reading Flight from the croft by Bill Innes, who as a young boy living in the outer hebrides manages to fulfill his dream of becoming a pilot, firstly in the RAF and then joining BEA and flying all the classic airliners of the day from the DC3 through to the B767. This book appeals to me for two reasons as he tells of flying some of my favourite british airliners and also talks about flying the DC3 on routes in Scotland which is my favourite place and have been visiting regularly for the last 50 years during which time I have been able to visit all the airfields mentioned in the book so reading his tales brings it to life again. Now obviously all you DC3 buffs out there will know the airfix dc3 does not accurately portray the BEA pionair class but as I am not brave enough to try and correct it I decided to accept it as being representative of the era albeit not strictly correct, it will give me pleasure as a reminder of that wonderful period in time, also a big thank you to my lifelong friend and fellow member Lindan for donating to me the kit and decal sheet following his retirement from the hobby. Cheers Michael.
