  1. Hi Chris, This is awesome, like many I love the VC10 and yes it is the most elegant of them all. And this is a very elegant model, first time I've seen one with the clear windows too I think. Nice to see the wing detail highlighted because with the absence of Coroguard or anything that large wing could be quite bland so it keeps it looking busy. Thanks for posting, looking forward to more! Cheers, Ian
  2. Hi Chris, You're spoiling us today! I love the Trident and am working on a couple of AA examples and I must say with your modifications it's hard to tell the difference! Can't wait for the Red Square one! Cheers, Ian
  3. Hi Chris, Well I have to agree with everyone else that is superb! The weathering is great, as well as the use of the Welsh engines which make all the difference. It is a really nice kit to build, one of my favourites. Lovely livery too! Cheers, Ian
  4. Hi Berk, Wow, what a gorgeous A319! Absolutely flawlessly finished and great subtle weathering. Of course, the Authentic Airliners windows really bring it to life. I have to agree with Sini, PE pitots would be the 'icing on the cake' though. Beautiful photography too and I like that in the head-on shot it looks like fans are turning! Looking forward to seeing more in the near future! Cheers, Ian
  5. You're welcome Mike! I'm glad they fit! Cheers, Ian
  6. Hi Neil, Nice looking 727 you've got there! Wonderful classic 70s/80s livery too. I seem to remember flying on one Rome to Heathrow in 1984 when the A300 we should have flown in developed a fault with the nose gear. I missed one a few weeks ago. I heard an unusual plane fly over fairly low and when I checked on Flightradar24 noticed it was the Oil Response 727 flying over just above the low clouds, bummer! I think it's based at Doncaster. Cheers, Ian
  7. Hi Mike, Great job masking the coroguard on the wings it's quite fiddly on the A320 family. With regard to the winglet decals, I would either paint white or apply over a white decal otherwise the colours in the laser decal might come out too dark. The engines appear to be the same white as the fuselage but the pylons are definitely Airbus grey and I think it would be noticeable if they were painted white. Don't forget as there are overwing exits there needs to be overwing escape markings which I don't think are included on the Nazca decal sheet. https://www.airteamimag
  8. Hi Alex, Welcome to the wonderful world of airliner modelling! It's a shame about the cockpit windscreen decal as it is the only thing ruining such a well finished model. Could you cut it along one of the frames and realign it? I think it has been designed for a different kit so therefore doesn't match the angles of your kit. I have lots of Boeing narrow body cockpit decals I can send you if let me know your address. Cheers, Ian
  9. Looks like you're in luck Eric! https://www.f-dcal.fr/decals/index.php?id_product=429&controller=product&id_lang=1 Cheers, Ian
  10. Hi Matt, I think a Sharpie would be too thick. Something like this might be more accurate. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STA-Fine-Liner-Pen-Pigment-Marker-Waterproof-Black-Ink-0-05mm-0-8mm-Brush/192740843550?var=492882450987&hash=item2ce03fe01e:g:bxoAAOSws99b~rqL&redirect=mobile Cheers, Ian
  11. Hi Alex, Great result! So nice to see the Aerolineas Argentinas livery not one we see very often, you need a strip of white decal for the Argentinian flag by the way! Nicely weathered too. Having built the Authentic Airliners kit recently I can't see any differences shapewise and at nearly half the price the EE looks to be the one to go for although it's still way overpriced!! I've always thought of the Braniff 747-100 as the 'Big Orange' and the 747SP as 'Orange Squash' but maybe it's just me!! Looking forward to your Braniff machine in RFI. I'm considering an
  12. Hi Martijn, Really quite marvellous! Superb weathering as is standard on all your models as is the photography! Was this the livery you flew on? I didn't realise it was around in 1998, time flies I guess. I have a Zvezda 767 in the stash but have heard the engines are slightly undersized, although they look fine on your model, what is your opinion on this? All the best for a safe arrival in April, modelling time might be a little curtailed for a while though! I gave up for years after my two arrived. I tried for a bit but someone would always wake up and need feeding
  13. Hi, If you do find you need to sand the top of the fuselage if you stick, with double sided tape, some wet and dry to the inside of a piece of half tube which is a similar radius as the fuselage you shouldn't get any flat spots. You'll lose any aerials etc. but these can be replaced easily enough later on with thin styrene. Hope this makes sense and helps out! Cheers, Ian
  14. Hi Alex, Great 737's! We don't see many Heller 737s on RFI so something of a novelty. Good choice of liveries Luxair is definitely one on my list as I remember them well at Heathrow in the late 70's and early 80's and I do like the RAM livery too, again another from my spotting days although I remember 727s were more frequent visitors. I wonder if Heller are ever going to rerelease any of their 1/125 airliners. Cheers, Ian
  15. Hi Neil, Love it! Which colour did you use for the tail? Also which silver did you use it looks nice and bright!? Does the kit still come with steps? Cheers, Ian
