  1. Quite a nice job well done! Really love the Connie...you've captured her just fine! Thank you for sharing.
  2. Hi Alex... Well...I have to say...to have been such a nightmare, and you are to be commended for such bravery wandering into THAT dark night...you finished her beautifully. I really like this old classic beautiful bird. The odd scaled Heller products were terrible, but with some patience, persistence, and a lot of elbow grease...we get to see such beautiful handiwork! Not only does she look like a DC-8, she looks like a wel; dressed, well finished one! Nice build indeed. Now you can reward yourself with something a bit more "easy!" Nice job! And...by the way...very good work and a very watchful eye, in your detail around the nose. I can imagine those little compound curves were a bit of a headache. Cheers! Paul
  3. Hi Alistair... She is absolutely beautiful. This one gets a double WOW WOW! I love your attention to a specific aircraft, and your attention to the details of THAT specific airplane. You've done a cracking job here, for sure! The Nazca additions just make the model...and she's just dirty enough to pass for real! Presentation is outstanding as well. Thank you for sharing. I am still waiting for my 757s to arrive...hopefully soon. Looking forward to building at least one. My set of Nazca details arrived yesterday, and they are quite nice. Yours is definitely and most assuredly among the best builds of the new Zvezda 757 rendition I have seen. Nice work indeed! Paul
  4. Beautiful work, Einar…as usual. Lots of mods on this one, and very well done. Good use of the aftermarket stuff for your conversion!
  5. Wow! Such a good build of a historical aircraft. Nice work indeed...even after 15 years! Anything worth its beauty takes time....thanks for sharing. And a very dignified display base as well!
  6. Really nice, Neil. I love the BA liveries...they just make a beautiful bird seem classic and more beautiful. You're a real master with the Revell builds...the 747s are tricky and challenging. You've done a great job with yours...and...they look great in formation! What blues did you use on the lower fuselages on the Landor and the Negus liveries? Thanks for sharing!
  7. Beautiful work as always, Einar! The baby -9 catches my eye especially. Really like the detail of that little bird, and displayed next to big brother is really effective. The MD-82 is very very nice indeed. I do like the Minicraft kit quite a bit, but it certainly isn't without its unique challenges and inaccuracies. I started one last year, but put it away when I discovered the Eastern Express Md-80 was a better kit, and had greater and more accurate detailing. Nice work with both of these beauties. Thank you for sharing!
  8. Nice job, Einar! And cudos for pushing on through and NOT throwing in the old towel. Thank you for sharing such a great rendition of a fine old classic. She looks really really good. Love this old airliner and the Olympic livery really makes her stand out. And you actually flew on one of these? Wow. Now that is a story to tell. Very nice build, indeed.
  9. Hi Julien; Very Very nice build. This is your first AA build? I have built only one as well, an MD-11...and it was a fun and challenging adventure that certainly is nothing like building a plastic kit. And Kurt is most kind; always accommodating and easily accessible for questions or help. I'm about to begin an new AA build, and am excited to once again be on the workbench taking a different direction for a summer project. Your 757 is really beautiful, and unusual. The newer United livery has grown on me, and tends to really make the airplane stand out beautifully. You've done a fine job here. Always impressive to see what others have done with scratch building details...nicely done! Thanks for sharing. Hope to see more AA builds from you soon! Paul
  10. Nice work as usual, Neil. Your “production line” has become prolific with great builds!
  11. Beautiful, Einar! You have demonstrated MASTER craftsmanship here. I love this build...of course, I am a bit prejudiced towards the older classic liveries on the classic birds such as the 727s, especially TWA and Pan Am. Your paint is spot on, and your detailing is very very good. Almost everyone would overlook the inclusion of the pitot tubes on the nose, but you didn't! Thank you! And they look quite good. The Minicraft kit is a bear to work through with its inaccuracies and downright incorrectness on a few items, but with some careful planning and patient care, this kit can and does turn out very nicely. Good job!
  12. Wow, Alex…another fine build. You are most definitely a master surgeon! Nice work. paul
  13. Once again a beautiful build of a beautiful classic Convair! Thanks for sharing, Einar.
  14. Quite nice, Einar! I’m very partial to the classic airliners…and like you, the DC-9 series is among my favorites. Really like the shades in detail you made on the engines. I’ve used the AK Extreme metal paint once, and liked it…but I am a solid Alclad fan and user. Did you find the AK likeable and easy? Did it produce the finish you wanted? Love the old KLM livery, too…very nice work, indeed.
  15. Hi Neil; I must agree with Phil…the best plane and the beat livery. Very good work indeed! I am quite familiar with the Revell 747-400…it brings some pretty challenging hurdles to the workbench. Some of those are surmounted with perseverance, patience, and a lot of sanding…and some we just have to live with. And your learning process from a previous build seems to have really paid off…in modeling airliners…school never stops! Really appreciate your particulars using Revell paint. One of my local hobby shops has just begun to carry the Revell paint line, and I am anxious to try them. Thanks for sharing!
