    G-DCIO British Caledonian DC-10

    I'm not going to get this finished before midnight but a quick update: Port side just needs final set of windows and tailfin decal but a bit more to do on the starboard side Hopefully should be finished before the weekend

    I'll second the motion for an Airliners IV Group Build
  6. A great scheme and beautifully finished Rick - I nearly bought this one at Telford last year to go with my Durango and Crested Butte liveries.

    A brace of BA "Bluebirds" - FINISHED

    Thanks Dave - Delft Blue was my first choice of scheme I agree Chris, the window decals are so much better than the basic dark grey ones Cheers Zebra, having chosen the Delft it was then a case of finding another blue scheme amongst Day's decals It's a shame my Chelsea Rose decals didn't arrive in time to do a third "Bluebird" z guess I'll be visiting the Daco stand at Telford to buy another 400 kit

    A brace of BA "Bluebirds" - FINISHED

    Hi Ian I thought that I'd replied 're the decals but can't have hit send Fitting the tail decals wasn't too hard but needs care and use of a scalpel where they meet over the top of the APU to remove any overlap. Strangely, the Poole version has a small triangular cut-out to aid fitting to the fuselage contour but the Delft one doesn't due to the pattern. Guess which one went on the easiest - yes bizarrely the Delftblue! I don't remember the BA world tails but must have seen them. I was drawn to the Delft after seeing a large (1/72?) scale model of G-RAES at Denver airport. Mike

    1/144 Daco 737-400 finished in BA "Chatham" livery circa 2008 Paints as above but leading edges are Daco decals this time and finally I couldn't resist one of all three together

    Daco - Skyline 737-400 Now BA "Chatham"

    Thanks Ian, will get in touch if I need the light, I'm sure it can go in the Gallery without it. As for the ring, who knows! Also, I don't know when BA plated over the cockpit "skylights" but I did find a photo of DOCH with both ring and "skylights". Mike

    Daco - Skyline 737-400 Now BA "Chatham"

    Thanks Jabba, there are a few small blemishes but careful choice of photo angle hides most!
  13. Fantastic work I'm glad you liked the Foxbat masks - I've got them and this boxing to build sometime, the Flanker group build just fell at the wrong time.

    1/144 Airfix 737-200 Halfords Appliance White and Fiat Capri Blue. Mr Color MC218 Aluminium for engines and leading edges. 26Decals for livery specific items and Authentic Decals windows. and finally one of both tails

    Daco - Skyline 737-400 Now BA "Chatham"

    Well, this is almost there - just some touch up work needed on aerials and pitots. Oh yes, also the port wingtip light pinged off the tweezers - never to be seen again! Although Philippe at F-Dcal has been in touch apologising for my order getting overlooked it was obvious that my choice of "Chelsea Rose" (another World Tail) would not arrive in time for the deadline, so I decided to use a set of 26Decals Chatham livery. A few photos:
