  1. Ian, Fujimi car kits typically list 2 paint brands - Mr. Hobby - Hobby Color (displayed with H and white square, black number) and Mr. Hobby - Mr. Color (displayed black square, white number). Hobby Color H92 is clear orange Mr. Color 92 is semi-gloss black Cheers!
  2. 2 and a half years ago, Eastern Express touted a planned release of a JAL version with the Pratt & Whitney engines - but so far it still has not appeared. Several other Airliner releases show a box-art picture on the side panel. If you freeze this video https://youtu.be/1RofNxNy3-I at 1:47, you can see it. Cheers!
  3. Rob, That's the retractable tail skid bumper and its bay. It is deployed during take-off and landing to prevent "tail scrape". Some pics here: Take-off Close-up #1 Close-up #2 Cheers!
  4. The little emblem is a small red & blue "british airways" logo stacked vertically. Here's some clearer copies for you to use: Cheers! Scott.
  5. There was 1 Series 1101 that did get to wear the Negus & Negus scheme: G-ARVM. https://www.airliners.net/photo/British-Airways/Vickers-VC10-Srs1101/51690/L
  6. The Hasegawa is a simpler-to-build curbside kit. That's car model speak for one-piece body and no engine detail.
  7. In 1/72, forward fuselage stretch is 40.2mm, aft fuselage stretch is 22.9mm, and each wingtip stretch is 8.4mm. The angle of the -30's wing leading edge is a little less swept back then the -10, so the chord increases slightly over the -10 as you near the tip. Here's a plan you can use: https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/attachments/dc-9-30-wing-stations-jpg.38562/ The stabilisers on the -10 were mounted perfectly horizontal, but from the -30 onwards, they are mounted with 3 degrees anhedral. Also from the -30 onwards (just to be nit-picky), the engine pylons were mounted half a window frame further aft. This page is handy: https://www.airlinercafe.com/page.php?id=396 Cheers!
  8. Ray is correct. Doyusha did do a 1/200 DC-8-61 with 2 different box tops: https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/3/6/7/1139367-27767-88-pristine.jpg https://www.kingkit.co.uk/uploads/shop/large/81903P1010030.JPG
  9. Decal coming from 26... http://www.26decals.com/epages/62035508.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/62035508/Products/STS44326
  10. PW engines were in the JAL & JTA boxings of the -200, and also the Lauda Air & JAL boxings of the -300.
  11. G'day Rob! No, the B1 did not have Krueger flaps. They were introduced with the B2-200. Scott.
  12. I think Mike's referring to the pic of the KKK crew in front of their biplane.
  13. External width is 2.81m (9' 3") https://fr.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:ATRv1.0.png
  14. My logic had sound intentions, but I have since found some videos which prove I was only half-right. Both engine types rotate clockwise as you look at them from the front. (Which is counter-clockwise to the forward direction of travel) GE engines: Air Canada 787 pushback and engine start RR engine: British Airways engine run Engines are windmilling counter-clockwise, but as they fire up, they turn clockwise (look at the squiggle painted on the centre cone). I concede that the nacelles are slightly different (regardless of vents) - but in 1/144 scale (or indeed 1/200) the differences are negligible at best. 99.5% of spectators wouldn't notice anyway! Just enjoy your build Michael, we look forward to your progress. Cheers!
