    Flybe Q400

    Thats absolutely stunning, really miss seeing these in and out of Glasgow. Eng
  2. https://www.facebook.com/search/top?q=zvezda Decal options now announced too:- 1. RAF, ZH872, 2. French AF, 3. Italian AF, 4. RAAF, 5. USAF (Ramstein Anniversary aircraft with invasion stripes) Thanks again to @Stephen for the heads up. Eng
  3. Box art for the C-130J in 1/72 released on Facebook today - https://www.facebook.com/Zvezda.ModelKits/photos/a.119782984791181/3633885043380940/ Thanks to @Stephen for the heads up on this, I'm sure alot of BM'ers will be after one of these. Eng
  4. Very nice, love the clean finish and choice of markings. Beautiful work Eng
  5. That is absolutely beautiful, you've absolutely nailed that. I've got 2 of theses in work and the same markings (going for G-CPET). Its a beautiful kit and having started a Minicraft kit, years ago this is streaks ahead of it. The Minicraft kit is confined to the scrapper now. I was lucky enough to maintain and fly on the BA 757's for a good few years so I've long awaited a decent kit and seeing your build proves Zvezda have produced a great starting point. Looking forward to seeing more of these. Beautiful work. Eng
  6. Absolutely stunning! Those markings look incredible. G
  7. Lovely work. Beautifully painted and finished. G
  8. Hannants now have a 1/72 Xtradecal sheet for the walkway lines that will cover the early and late colour schemes and also a sheet of markings for the H/K version with a couple of GW1 options and an overall green stretched ‘K’. Hopefully Zvezda are still aiming to release a long fuselage ‘J’ soon. This would allow a fair few options by cross-kitting the ‘H’ and ‘J’. Eng
  9. Beautiful Eagle Shaun, I built exactly the same jet last year with this kit and agree with you on how good the GWH kit is to build, your build is absolutely superb. I've not had a go at the E yet. Love the final shot with all jets together, very nice. Eng
  10. I've got two of these well under way now and they've been nice and straightforward so far, with excellent fit. One little thing that I've noticed is that when the wing assembly is mated up to the fuselage, it generally fits like a glove, however you may have a small step with the lower belly part protruding at its forward edge, back edge or both. I've found that with the wing section offered into place some gentle pressure on the fuselage sides just in front of the wing leading edge is enough to make the step disappear. Gently clamping this and gluing the front edge only and living it to dry before doing the same at the back edge should sort out the issue. If you try cutting away material from the centre section between the wings then you just end up with the upper wing halves sitting too high. Loving these so far, and will update this if I come across any other gotcha's. Eng
  11. G-BPEE and PEC were based at Glasgow for about 18 months and ran a Glasgow-New York-Boston return flight 5 days a week. A Service Check was carried out on a Wed and Sat at the BA hangar at Glasgow, the bay closest to the blast fence still has the cut-out in the roofline at the front to accommodate the tall fin on the 757. I'll definitely be in the market for a set of these, they look lovely. Eng
  12. G-CPEO was definitely in the "Whale Rider" scheme on delivery on July '97. I was coming to the end of my apprenticeship and working on the line at Terminal 1, we did the daily check on CPEO the night before its first revenue flight.... talk about new car smell, this jet was stunning. Just wish I'd had a decent camera back then. Eng
  13. Morning all, Anyone found an issue with the Main landing gear leg (Part 21) having the upper part of the drag stay (diagonal part), and the horizontal piece joining this to the main strut, either broken or short shot? I had 4 kits delivered yesterday and all of them had this part damaged. It’s not un-fixable using some brass rod or stretched sprue, and plasticard. I’ll post a few pics later but curious to see if this is a common issue or I’ve just been unlucky. Eng
  14. Oh that is beautiful! The Beau is a superb looking machine and you've done it justice here. Eng
