  1. Hi Orion, Thank you, it is definitely a striking and eye catching scheme. I like all of the Star Wars themed ANA aircraft . Regards, Alistair Thank you very much... he was almost certainly in the rear haha. Regards, Alistair
  2. Thank you John, I must admit I am becoming a huge admirer of the 787. It’s a lovely aircraft. I’m excited to see how the 777X gets on. Looked great the other day on its first take off run... Regards, Alistair
  3. Hi Dave, I usually give my models a coat or 2 of Humbrol Clear coat once all the painting is complete and prior to decals being applied. I then go over it again with the Clear coat to seal the decals and then would be looking to weather. My fear is that the Humbrol Clear coat (being water based) would wash off the weathering effects when I go to ‘seal it’ once finished. I agree, I used to be Cabin Crew and I don’t think I ever saw a truly filthy aircraft, just some tatty ones that would show their age. Thank you . Regards, Alistair
  4. Hello I recently purchased some grey through to black pastels and weathering powders which I intend on having a go at grime and weathering effects on my Airliners. I’m not sure what’s the best technique to this. My other concern is how I ‘seal’ in the pastels and weathering once it’s in the finished model without it smudging or transferring to areas that I don’t intend it to. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Alistair
  5. That is an excellent model. I love all the attention to detail and how the weathering brings it even more to life. My only worry with Airliners is that they are glossy/satin and not sure how well the pastels would adhere to the surface and then what would need to be applied over the top without it being spoilt, so to speak. I totally agree about the studying of reference material, as Airliners generally don’t get too dirty, only really the undersides, wings and streaks across/down the windows. Regards, Alistair
  6. Thank you, I very much agree! It’s great that some airlines have special liveries! Regards, Alistair

  8. Hi Ian, Thank you, I agree with you the -9 does look more in proportion than the -8. I look forward to seeing your 787 in the future. Thank you for the top regarding PE parts, I may give them a go on a later build. I have decided I’m going to try and be brave and convert the Revell 773ER to either a -200LR or -200ER. I am nervous, and excited, to have a go. The white line around the nose is a decal, it came with the Zvezda Kit decal sheet, I had to do it myself on my Qatar 787-8. Thank you again. Regards, Alistair
  9. Thank you, I will keep that in mind I have an experiment with PE parts. Would you guys highly recommend PE parts or not? Regards, Alistair Yeah this an Authentic Airliners sheet, they have a lot of different aircraft ranges now. I’d love some Photoreal window and cockpit decals for an A380 I plan to build, but unfortunately they don’t have those and I’m not sure they will. Regards, Alistair Thank you Michael
  10. Thank you Dave, I might try experimenting with the metal detail parts on a future build, and see how I get on. I brought that book about airliner modelling this weekend as it was going for £6 on Amazon , it is an excellent little book to have with some great techniques and tips. Is it true that superglue would be the required method to attach the metal parts to the model? I also wanted to know if anyone has come up with a good paint match for the A350 ‘Matterhorn white’ wings. I was going to mix a speck of light grey with gloss white. As I am hoping to do a Singapore Airlines A350 in the future or even BA or Virgin’s new -1000. I look forward to seeing your finished models . Thank you again. Regards, Alistair
  11. I present my Zvezda Boeing 787-9 in Norwegian’s UNICEF livery G-CKLZ. I chose this livery as it’s a great show of support for the excellent work that UNICEF carry out all over the World and it’s great to see Norwegian, like many other airlines, supporting this great cause. The kit was OOB with aftermarket decals from Ascensio and the windows and cockpit decals from Authentic Airlines. The Satcom antenna comes as standard with this kit. It was straight forward to assemble with minimal filling required. The paints used were Halfords Appliance white, brush painted Humbrol acrylic Scarlett 60 for the red section. I wish I had sprayed the red section now though instead of brush painting it. I have a special livery Vietjet A321 to do in the future and will likely spray the red on that I think. The metals were various Revell Aqua colours. The decals are laser printed with additional white screen printed decals where they are required. They are easy to use and work well with Microset/Microsol. The only thing I did differently was paint the lower fuselage billboard red, as the decal supplied doesn’t match the actual aircraft livery after studying photos of the underside. I made the ice indicators myself for the wings using left over 777 decals and cut it to reflect the shape seen on the Norwegian 787, as it’s not common on all 787s that I’ve seen. As always an excellent product from Authentic Airlines, they really do bring a model to life. My next project to hit here in the future is likely to be my A321N in the Hawaiian Airlines livery. As always thank you for looking and any constructive feedback and comments are very much welcomed. Regards, Alistair
  12. Hi Ian, Thank you . I don’t blame her haha, I’d love to do the R2-D2 at some point. It’s having the room in the man cave to display the larger models haha. They are good decals, and once set they achieve the desired painted on look. I have 2 sets on the way, B773 Eva Air ‘Hello Kitty’ and some for an A321neo that will be displayed in the the Hawaiian Airlines new colours. I have a lot of models waiting to be started haha, so I’ll be busy this year for sure. Looking forward to sharing them with you all. Regards, Alistair
  13. Thank you. It wasn’t easy haha... I have a Hello Kitty one to do in the future and fearing that’ll be more of a headache haha.
  14. Thank you Chris! I am excited to progress with it, I like the Norwegian livery... it’s simple but striking in its own way. I opted for the UNICEF livery to show support for the great work they do. I have so many exciting things to do this year... I have an A321neo that will be in Hawaiian‘a livery and the Eva Air 773. Regards, Alistair
