  1. You are right! Thanks for finding such great photos, really does seem obviously grey now! I shall tr6 and paint the engines like I did the wings- mixing revell light grey and normal gray. Thanks a million BetaSingh
  2. The supplied decals were just unusable, so I contacted Welsh Models who kindly have sent me a spare Hapag Lloyd set of decals, but I was wondering what colour the engines were, as on airliners(dot)net, the colour varies from a dark grey to just plain white, so I was wondering whether anyone could shed any light on this. Regards BetaSingh
  3. Ha ha, I shall fix that, standby for the hash browns (why am I still carrying on with this!)
  4. Oh, that I will have to fix then!
  5. The Boeing 767 has been the workhorse of many an American airline for numerous years now, but I was intrigued at the prospect of an Aeroflot 767, and thus on a recent holiday to the Netherlands, I just had to go to AviationMegastore and pick up a Zvezda kit! The kit itself, in comparison to other reviews of Zvezda kits I have seen on Britmodeller, is no different. The kit was masterfully created, all the parts beautifully join together and it is a delight to build. This kit was brush painted using a number of different paints - the Aluminium colour of the fuselage being Humbrol 56 enamel, the blue being Revell LH Blue (also an enamel), and the rest being either Revell acrylics or Tamiya, which, contrary to what many people have said, worked wonders when brush painted onto my kit (a miracle!). There are a few improvements I think I could have made to this kit, but you guys will spot numerous, and please feel free to tell me how to improve, as all advice is always appreciated! BetaSingh P.S. Advice on how to get better at RFI threads will also be much appreciated! http://imgur.com/a/qaWl8
  6. I've always loved the look of the Egg Plane kits that Hasegawa makes - fun and interesting but still looking (just) like the object in real life. The kit was a cracker to build, apart from the landing gear, which I somehow glued in the wrong way round. "That's why the plane can't sit down on its front wheels" I sadly pondered after constructing it. So, to fix the problem, and to try and make it less of a gaping error (although you guys will DEFINITELY pick up on it), I decided to make it similar to a taking-off diorama. I got a chocolate box, sprayed it grey and brush painted the runway markings on. The masking tape which I used left a substantial ridge, it inadvertently left a rather weathered looking runway, which I thought to enhance with dry brushing Humbrol 33 (Black). It was a really good kit to build and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of getting one. All comments and criticisms of my many mistakes are much appreciated.

    By the looks of Revell (US)' website, it seems we will get neither A320 or A321 this year, as one can see in the link below. Why Revell? Why do we have to wait till 2019? https://www.hobbyshipper.com/cgi-bin/wsr600p?V=RMX&I=RVLS3942
  10. Thanks ALL for the help, but, just to clarify, when sanding, I just rub the fuselage against some sandpaper? Also, as when cutting the fuselage, I accidentally cut into the plastic a bit meaning that the underside of the fuselage is not straight, is there any way I can fix this? Again, thank you SO much for the help BetaSingh
  11. Thanks SO much guys for the help, really cleared it up. I would love to buy a DACO 737 kit, but unfortunately, my tight budget restricts me But seriously, thank you so much, all help appreciated. Regards BetaSingh
  12. Thanks for the prompt reply May I ask, which bits require sanding, as the small sticky out things on the model were deliberately put as strips to help join the fuselages together. I have since removed these as upon dry fitting the fuselage, it is evident they hamper the fit more than they aid it. Thus, I was wondering whether it is these you are talking about, or the fuselage in general, and in particular, which bits of the fuselage? I have also sanded the edges of the fuselage quite a lot, but I don't know whether this is enough. And furthermore, which of the metal parts would be the fuselage bays (bad pic, sorry), as I have literally no clue what the instructions are on about. Kind Regards BetaSingh
