  1. Happy to see this is back for another year. Finishes two days before my AS exams start though... I still have that Eastern Express 737-300 that I was building last year for the Airliners GB but got frustrated with and abandoned. I don't think it would qualify for the 25% rule though, as I already added the wings and tail and converted it to be a -300WL. Also unsure of whether or not I want to face off against Eastern Express for a second round...perhaps a Zvezda -800 will be good, I already have a set of Nordstar decals for it. EDIT: Just realized its not 'back', it didn't happen last year. I was thinking of the Airliners III GB.
  2. They look beautiful! Makes me want to get some more F-RSIN Britannias and create a production line as you have done. Who are they by, if you don't mind me asking? F-RSIN or something else?
  3. Seems Zvezda will be releasing a 737 late (?) this year, just in time for the STGB next year! If it's an -800, that's what I'll use instead of a Revell one of course! Much prefer Zvezda's quality and details.
  4. The yellow plastic is a result of what you bought being a Zvezda anniversary kit, as stated on the box. Zvezda models are usually cast in a very nice gray plastic.
  5. Congratulations Ian - that win was completely deserved! And Skoda, good luck - those are some very interesting liveries. I presume you'll be using decals for VQ-BAS, and masking all the squares on the Germanwings one?
  6. What would be better - an Airfix BAC 1-11, perhaps in Virgin or British Airways colors, or an F-RSIN Bristol Britannia?
  7. I'm in if I can find somewhere to get a DC-9 or MD-80 here in Russia...
  8. Oh, so it is! Completely missed that. I apologize.
  9. Just one thing - isn't the top part of the canopy meant to be painted, not transparent?
  10. OK, I guess the EE 737 wins this round. Didn't get much done since last month due to, again, my complete lack of motivation to deal with this thing. I'd be grateful if someone could move this into the WIP section...or perhaps I'll start a new thread there once I get back to this. Thanks to Ray and Enzo for organizing this and to everyone else for participating. For now, I'm just going to set this build aside, start a new one, and stay away from EE for a bit.
  11. Photos not working, in other threads too. Is this virgin trains east coast wifi being weird or is photobucket down again?
  12. Very well built. The VC10 is an already beautiful plane, and that scheme really completes it well.
  13. Images not loading again in this and some other threads. Is photobucket down again?
  14. Could I ask...which stupid-looking decal on what air intake do you mean? I can't seem to find anything stupid-looking in the photos...
  15. Looks great! What paint did you end up using?
  16. My EE 737 has stomped all inspiration into the ground. I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, can't deal with all the puttying and sanding which is still to come. Perhaps I will leave the 737 for now and turn to a more favorable mode, robably a Zvezda A320 or 767. There is a high chance I won't be able to finish anything for this GB...
  17. Oh, I remember that thread! Saw it a long while ago, just didn't make the connection now. Pity about the 777SP...
  18. Virgin Australia! My favorite 777 scheme! Will you make a build thread for it anywhere?
  19. Thank you! Welcome, Jessica! Now only 13 more needed!
  20. Absolutely beautiful. Are you positive you didn't accidentally buy AA's 1:72 BAC 1-11? This is definitely 1:144?
  21. Since the GB is officially over, I won't be able to finish this before the end. The inspiration-killer of a kit really does that to you. I guess I'll just have to keep going outside the GB. EDIT: Just realized there's still a whole month left. Never mind!
  22. I guess it's too late to fix, but the blue should be substantially darker... http://samolets.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/airbus-a320-aeroflot.jpg
  23. I have the F-RSIN Britannia with British Eagle decals, it's not bad, but there's quite a lot of flash and some irregular molding. Probably low pressure moulded (?)
  24. I found this image of G-AVMU showing the carpet color rather clearly, however not sure if this was before or after it was repainted to the Landor scheme. Did interiors actually change during the rebranding? Could it be that the carpet stayed the same?
