  1. Hi Sini, Really enjoying watching your progress on this, looking forward to the finished model, nearly there! I'm interested in your coroguard pattern, I've never seen two tones of grey coroguard on any of the A320 family. Is this a new thing? Cheers, Ian
  2. I was very surprised his Viscount sold so badly as it is a very accurate kit and at the time there was only the Welsh vacform as competition. Now there are the F-RSIN and Eastern Express IM kits. At least Werner is still supplying his window decals! Looking forward to your TAA example. Thanks Wulfman glad you like it, it was part of my project to model the entire BA Negus fleet. Cheers, Ian
  3. Yes I have one of Kurt's early 3 piece Viscount's which is destined to be finished in British Midland livery. It's still in primer and has been for nearly 10 years but I can't remember any problems with the fuselage. I doubt it's anything major as there's no sign of any steps under the primer. Must get round to finishing it some day!! Cheers, Ian
  4. Hi Tommo, Not a problem it's nice to see it again! This one was the two piece fuselage which I joined with superglue. As far as I can remember there was very little tidying up to do. Thanks Phil, sorry I didn't see your post first time around! Not sure if you've seen my latest addition to the fleet? https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235072809-1144-authentic-airliners-british-airways-boeing-747-100/&tab=comments#comment-3677466 Thank you Paul. Yes I've got a BM on the go too using the classic-airlines.com decal. Regarding AA decals I can't recommend them highly enough and use them in all my builds. Thanks! Yes Continental was a smart livery very similar, if not identical, to Channel Airways if I recall correctly. Cheers, Ian
  5. Hi Dave, Just out of interest and to add to the discussion I measured my completed S&M 748 and it was 141mm long and my AA kit looks to be 144mm (not 100% on that because it has a separate nose cone which may need sanding to fit). Also, the recent newly released 748 decals from 26 state whether they fit either AA or Mark 1. I guess that doesn't help if you already have an older decal or one from another producer though! Cheers, Ian
  6. Hi, I think you've done a brilliant repainting job, very impressive! To me there isn't a lot of difference between what you've done here and assembling and painting an AA kit. I'm not into 1/200 as a rule and have always viewed the Hogan type models as little more than toys, mainly because many are crudely detailed and the tampo printing often leaves a lot to be desired, but what you've achieved with this has taken this type of model to another level especially with the photo real windows and extra detailing you've added. I don't know about you but I find designing decals almost as enjoyable as the rest of the modelling! Well done and thanks for sharing. Cheers, Ian
  7. Hi, I really like this! It's unusual and eye-catching. Great job with the natural metal finish too it looks well worn. Cheers, Ian
  8. Hi Harry, Seriously awesome! Really impressed by your perseverance on this difficult kit and what a result, this is how the kit should look OOB. Love the Douglas Tugmaster and Leyland National too! Quick question, what is the small lump on the underside in the 6th pic? I can't find any pics of it. Cheers, Ian
  9. Yes it is. I don't know what it is for, an antenna of some sort I guess. I think the short fairing is ok though. Cheers, Ian
  10. Hi Michael, I like it! This is the first time I've seen this smart livery on a model, I'm considering the same one on a 757. Great to see more use of AA windows. Well done with masking the curve at the rear of the fuselage, never easy to get right. I'm impressed by the colour match to the blue titles, which blue did you use? Cheers, Ian
  11. Hi Andy, Following your build and enjoying seeing it come together. I just noticed in your pic above the long fairing on the fuselage is far too deep. There are loads of pics on the web showing it to be at least half as deep. Might be a good time to rectify it before any more paint goes on! Cheers, Ian
  12. Hi James, This is the second unusual livery I've seen on here today! I've never seen one of these before either. You've done a great job with it. I generally find Minicraft kits build well it's the accuracy of some which is the problem. The MD80 is quite accurate overall but the way you have the nose gear doors is incorrect. It is only the small doors directly above the wheels which are open all the time. The bigger doors close as soon as the gear is down. I can recommend the FC detail decal Paul mentioned above too. What's next off your bench? Cheers, Ian
  13. Hi, I don't think I've ever seen one of these BA Doves modelled before. It looks great especially with the addition of the AA windows. Any more interesting liveries on your workbench? Cheers, Ian
  14. Hi Tom, Excellent! Isn't it nice when you can build without filling, sanding, filling, sanding? Super job on the Triple Seven, used to see loads of these at MAN but not at the moment Cheers, Ian
  15. Yes it does look good and as everyone says is a dream to build, it's also very easy to convert to a -200 with a fuselage chop, aftermarket engines and wingtips, even easier to convert to a -200LR or a-200F needing only the fuselage chop. Cheers, Ian
