  1. This update has been posted today Hello everyone. Sorry it's been quite a while since the last update. We had obviously hoped to be shipping by now, but unfortunately this is not the case. I had been postponing this update until we finally had some great news that the very first kits were being shipped. The initial batch of kits were awaiting a single part, the one piece fuselage. After many scrapped molds, small and large scale tests of the fuselage mold - we've decided that this part, and most others in the future will be directly tooled from the CAD. In other words, the mol
  2. I emailed him again recently and informed him that I was aware he was having family problems and production issues,and I was prepared to wait for my order.I also made my concerns about his lack of communication known and the necessity of showing a bit of courtesy to his customers. No reply. I didn’t doubt his enthusiasm or genuine motives.I don’t think he set out to rip anyone off.The whole project seems to have fallen off a cliff late last year,or maybe I should say fallen out of the sky! Maybe he’s overwhelmed by it all a bit and hiding under the bed so to speak.
  3. Is it a 700 or 800 series they are planning?I know that Authentic Airliners are planning to produce an 800 series later this year.
  4. Another person lusting after a Maxdecals Aer Lingus early years sheet! I also intrigued by the colour shemes of the early years,and I exchanged some messages with Joe late last year. I discovered some pictures of Constellations arriving at Shannon airport in 1947.they are on the Clare County Library website. https://clarelibrary.fotoware.cloud/fotoweb/archives/5009-Bluett-Photograph-Collection/ There is a picture of one of the Connies with a DC3in the background. The 2nd colour looks like it is orange but it is unclear whether these pictures have been colourised or no
  5. I am also attempting the Aer Lingus viking and have the valom Viking kit with the two fuselages.im having problems with Flickr so am unable to post pics of the sprues.I posted on another part of BM before Xmas that I would post pics but have been tied up with Xmas Family stuff and didnt get around to it.if you PM me maybe i can help. The longer fuselage in the kit has the extra length forward of the fuselage,the passenger door will need to be modified,i am open to correction on this though!
  6. I ordered one of these back in June,I understand the lockdown has affected the rollout. I emailed Neil with a query a few months ago and he was very quick to reply. I contacted him a week or two ago to see if there was any progress,but no reply. I hope all is well over there.Happy to wait. Also concerned about the weight on 3D printed U/C
  7. Hi Longtime lurker second time poster Ill try to stick some sprue pics up to test
  8. Hi Im a longtime lurker,fist time poster I got one of these in the post today and plan to build it as an Aer Lingus 1B so my question was the same as yours about the fuselage. I am planning to do a series of Early AL aircraft.I have a Heller Constellation,an Airfix Super Constellation and a 707 in early prep. Now looking for a DC-3 ,Viscount and Friendship. Im particularly interested in the early graphic identity of Aer Lingus,and the evolving styles of Typography and Graphic devices,eg the Winged Shamrock at the nose, the Shamrock itself etc.
