  1. Wow Ian-what a beautiful rendition of this classic airliner, I’ve been itching to see this bird finished. Your paint finish is superb! That Braz nose sure knocks the socks the Airfix original, well worth the time and effort Rgds, Nick.
  2. Very tasty-the Camo example is gorgeous. A trio of stunners you have there!!!
  3. Absolutely no criticisms from me Dave-that is one gorgeous 707. They certainly don’t make ‘em like that anymore - more’s the pity! Your paint job looks flawless btw Nick.
  4. That’s a little beauty Ragnar. Your highlighting of the panel lines is exquisite! Rgds, Nick.
  5. Absolutely outstanding !!
  6. This looks like it’s going to build into an absolute masterpiece! The boxing and general presentation looks very classy

    Thank’s for all the positive comments guys-very much appreciated! Nick.
  8. That’s a stunner Phil-beautifully finished. The mica red glinting in the sunlight looks amazing!
  9. Hi Guys, Whilst I realise 1/200 airliners are not particularly well catered for/popular, I must confess to having a real soft spot for the old Hasegawa Love Liner series. I remember as a spotty youth building a number of these little beauties, and all these years later they still build into pretty accurate renditions of the real thing. I built this 747 about 6 months ago from the old JAL boxing - IIRC this was the first 747 Hasegawa released. The landing gear is a bit basic so I added steering cylinders and taxi lights to the nose gear, but left the main landing gear alone as it's pretty much hidden away under the wings. As I managed to snap off the wing mounted HF aerials these were replaced with plastic rod. I also added a APU exhaust shroud, which is a bit oversize - and I wasn't too sure if the early ones actually had these fitted(?) Most photo's of BOAC 747's seem to show the wingtip magnetic sensors painted bright orange/red. Does anyone know the reason for this? The decals are by Classic-Airlines who do a great range for 1/200 airliners. Anyhow without further ado here's 'November Alpha' the flagship of the BOAC fleet.
  10. That’s a cracker Dave-very nice indeed. A fitting tribute to this stalwart of the BA fleet. It will be a sad day when these birds are retired leaving just the yawn inducing A320 family serving the euro routes Nick.
  11. Without doubt one of the best Sea Furies I’ve seen on here-stunning!
  12. That’s a lovely build-looks very realistic against the blue sky
  13. That’s an exquisite little 737 you’ve done there-beautifully finished! Still reckon the DACO 73 classics are undoubtedly the best out there. Nick.
  14. Absolutely superb Mike, your attention to detail is phenomenal! Rgds Nick.
