  1. This is the first time I've built an F-RSIN kit and, having read several things about their models both good and not so good, I approached this with a certain amount of caution. That was a wise move - this is not a kit for the faint-of-heart; it doesn't fall together like today's Zvezda or Revell kits that we've maybe got used to. Couple that with the fact that I wanted to model this unique aircraft in Heavylift markings as EI-BND rather than the Transmeridian markings that come with the kit, I was soon to discover further problems on the way. For me, the easy bit is the fact that F-RSIN has
  2. I used this shade as it is a 'darker' white (if that makes sense), but unfortunately not dark enough for the white on the decals to show up. I didn't want to go any darker as the aircraft isn't grey. It is the same colour on the wings.
  3. You've made a really good job of that, and an interesting decal choice too. Well done
  4. Excellent work; and may I say that interior looks fantastic!
  5. This is the Revell 1/144 scale A319 kit built as one of the BA 'Dove' aircraft (in this case G-EUPA) using decals by BSModelle for the main scheme, and by Authentic Airlners for the cabin and cockpit windows. The kit goes together well with no major issues; the BSModelle decals are excellent - easy to use, forgiving if you need to move them about a bit, and good to bed-in. The model was sprayed using a Halfords rattle can (fuselage) and hand-painted (everything else).
  6. Unfortunately the CL44-0 Guppy kit contains Transmeridian decals not Heavylift. Hopefully a decal manufacturer will come up with some after-market...
  7. I displayed at the Yeovil show for the first time this Spring and I have to say it was an excellent show. Like many other people, I really enjoyed the shows held at the FAA Museum and displayed models at all but one of them; however Ken Bugler's Yeovil show is definitely a worthy successor and well worth a visit if you are around on 26th October.
  8. Hear, hear. I think it's a cracking line-up for Airfix this year. I wish I had a tenner for every time I've said (or heard said) 'I wish they'd re-release the Dominie and Jetstream'.
  9. Haha, no I'm not Dan, but he was kind enough to send me some drawings which helped me with the paintwork and missing parts & panels.
  10. Just about finished, this is my Sword 1/72 Harrier T4N built to represent XW268 as it sits today at the Norwich Aviation Museum, Norfolk. The kit has been chopped about as appropriate and there is the addition of an Airfix IFR probe which was kindly donated to me. Ignore the base, as this is just something rough for it to sit on until I can do a better one! The model has been painted by hand using Humbrol enamels and Model Color acrylics. The tarp over the cockpit area is a piece of 5p supermarket carrier bag over a plastic strip frame. I had all manner of problems with the Swor
  11. Please excuse my total ignorance, but what's a 747-600?
  12. This is my ESCI 1/72 Matador that I built a couple of years ago. A bit of a fiddly old kit, but I like the result.
  13. Photobucket doesn't work (they obviously want to go out of business). Would have liked to see your 'wip' on this model.
  14. There was a decal made for the A330, but that was Brasil Decals which are just as hard to find as Gio. It was with the Star Alliance A340 and the number is BD-144/66.
