  1. WOW...I cant wait to get this kit.Always loved the SP
  2. Very nice and sleek build. I have one of these in my stash and this is the first time I see one built .Always wondered how they look like. Thank you for sharing Alex
  3. Cracking job on the mighty Galaxy. I have tve Roden kit in my stash too as well as the old Otaki kit. I wonder about the difference in building those two apart from the more detailed wings on the Roden kit.
  4. Wonderful job on the 737. The paintjob is immaculate and the Malev livery adorns the Boeing perfectly. I also used the extra cockpit windows provided in the Zvezda kit on my ongoing Airfix 707 builds. They fit rather nicely and only require a little bit trimming at the sides.I will be applying windowdecals after finishing but it already looks a great deal better in shape than OOB.
  5. Thank you very much. Yes,the cars and figures are 1/87
  6. Thank you very much. Thats some story there...I don't think this would work nowadays But it shows how reliable those Fokker planes were/are. I flew once with a Lufthansa Cityline Fokker 50 from Basel to Munich,unfortunately my one and only flight with a Fokker,and it was a very pleasant flight. I remember,after landing in Munich,one businessman was scolding the stewardess,complaining why they use such a crappy aircraft with propellers instead of a jet... Everyone probably thought,he should rather buy his own businessjet,so he won't need to fly prop-driven aircrafts anymore...
  7. Thank you very much. I still have 2 more of the Minicraft kits along with a MD-81 and a MD-90 from Eastern Express. I allready finished the Boeing 717 (MD-95) from Eastern Express,its a great kit,so I expect the same quality from the other EE kits
  8. Thank you very much Ian, Yes,I thought something was not right when I worked on the landing gear.Didn't realize what exactly the issue was. I had to correct the gear doors ,as they seemed to be too long and would not sit properly I will keep that in mind on the other Minicraft MD-80s
  9. Thank you very much. Not exactly...the machine is me As I always work on 4-5 kits and some others allready pre-started,there are times when a bigger number gets finished within some weeks.Usually 2 models are getting finished at once. As those two 747's sat around mostly built,this was a somewhat quicker process in getting them over the finishing line
  10. Thank you very much. Yes,I asked myself the same question a few times.I remember seeing those big travel agent airliner models in the windows.Always wanted one of those. I once asked if its possible to buy one but they refused.Told me they belong to the airlines and need to be given back after a while.Wonder what they did with them afterwards....
  11. Thank you very much for the kind words,also about my country. You've seen quite a lot of Switzerland I assume
  12. Thank you very much. WOW...I wish I could have experienced those days.Would have been great to see those planes for real and walk around them
  13. Thank you very much John. I hope to see your Dan Air A300 here on BM ? Ohh... I hope Mr Stringbag will build it earlier than that.There are too few Airfix A300s here on BM I have another unbuild in my stash,the US-Airfix issue with Eastern Airlines decals
  14. Unfortunately only one... But I still have display space in my cellar,which I changed into a hobbyroom.
  15. Thank you very much.I had absolutely no trouble with this one.The plastic held through the whole process.I had other experiences however with other kits though.This went well and the repaint was,apart from the masking process,nice n' easy.Too bad you didnt pick this kit up back then.But they show up sometimes on ebay and DACO has it still available on their website together with Garuda and TNT decals.Well worth a catch
