  10. Thank you for joining with this colorful whale. Waiting for the Pokemon to be completed. For those who follow : Here's an update : After some brainstorming, I finally managed (like I did on the B-747 and the RAF Tristar Tanker) to get the stab moving as you may notice on the pictures. As on this kit, both stabs are one piece together with the top of the fin, it did indeed need some delicate surgery . But doing so made it easier then to fit the bar code decal in this area. This B-727 is a different model than the one shown earlier above, though it almost sports the same livery and registration. The difference, barely noticeable is the Round European Flag at the top of the fin instead of the white code, meaning a later service date : Happy New Year. AV O
  11. Hi, and Merry Christmas to all of you. I guess he means any double face masking tape. But the thinnest one will be recommended as you will have to add the paper thickness to it. Indeed, it needs to be supple enough to bend around tight areas. You may find those in Art shops in different widths, according to the areas you intend to mask. The interest of the tape being that, should you be careful when cutting, you can use the reverse (or opposite) part for masking again in case of any unfortunate colour spitting. I did that way for the Marine Jumbo as did Gimme Shelter and you can spot the difference compared with the B-767 tail on which the decal was used : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27888-airliners-jumbos-1200th/ I also used that on the Northwest DC-10 (the decal did not have the right grey color) and the KLM MD-11 : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27642-airliners-modern-trijets-1200th/ https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27684-airliners-trijets-smaller-ones-and-biggest-1200th/ And on most of aerobatic teams : https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/28551-aerobatics-172/ https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/28544-aerobatics-172/

    Mind you. Adding some fun and trouble in minds. There is also a GE with the side grille fitted at the bottom as well as an outlet (3rd picture) : https://www.qwant.com/?q=B-787 GE nex Engine&t=images

    You may notice that even the two RR shown are different (side grille position). What is also different : - the pylon which goes further front on the GE (or is the central part shorter on this engine ?). - the hot parts ahead of the cone.
