  1. In 2021 Zvezda is to release a 1/144th Boeing B-757-200 kit - ref. 7032 Source: https://vk.com/zvezdamodels?z=photo-29859496_457589701%2Fwall-29859496_2617107 V.P.
  2. Good evening everyone! I hope you're all keeping well? After almost 5 weeks of work (and more money than I should probably admit to) I've finally completed my rendition of an American Airlines Boeing 777-300ER in 1:144 scale: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I could write a lot about this build (and I have on the Work in Progress thread), but I shall try and keep it relatively short and sweet. Just over a year ago I took my first flight, in an attempt to get over my fear of both flyin
  3. This will be my entry, though I am unsure at this stage whether it will be an A, B or C model. I depends on what sort of photos I can find for reference. The box Contents, yes 2 kits! There is also an Airfix boxed Sentry (minus the E-3D specific parts) in there in the lighter plastic Kit decal sheet Aftermarket decals for the build, the VM Decals sheet allows any serial inthe USAF fleet to be built. The Wolfpak sheet has the correct colour tilting, so I will use those and cherry pick from the other sheet for other markings.
  4. I am currently planning/collecting models/parts for building 3 (make that 6 now) Revell 747s. The first is a 747-400 in Thai Air livery, second a 747-600 conversion in Gulf Air Livery and thirdly a 747-8i in an as yet undecided scheme. Here's my first question, should I fill the panel lines as they are quite obviously too deep? I have on the go... 1. 747-400 Alitalia 2. 747-600 BOAC 3. 747-400Y British Airways Landor 4. 747-Xstretch Thai Airways 5. 747-8i Air New Zealand 6. 747-8i Gulf Air And a hankering for more

  6. B-17 Engines & Turbochargers (MDR4854 & MDR4857 for Revell/Monogram) 1:48 Metallic Details The old Monogram tooled B-17 in 1:48 is an ageing kit that will benefit from extra attention in the detail department, with Metallic Details of Ukraine having created a very worthy offering in the engine department. Available as two separate sets to allow you to decide which aspects of the engines you’re most interested in if there are budget cxonstraints, you can buy an engine set and a separate set for the Turbochargers, which are very prominent on the bottoms of
  7. ?'ve just bought the Academy C-97A in 1/72. I was wondering in is possible to convert it in a Civil B-377 thanks
  8. Airfix Boeing 707 1/144 26 Decals - Air Mauritius I've got three of the ancient Airfix 707's in the stash, but what to do with them? They are the Conway engined -436 version not used by very many airlines. Browsing the 26 Decals website I came across this laser decal sheet which really appealed to me. It covers two ex- British Airways 707's, G-APFD and G-ARWD. I chose G-ARWD, originally delivered to British Eagle and sister ship to the ill fated G-ARWE. The kit originates from 1963 and has a number of areas for improvement. In no particular order:
  9. A long time ago on a modelling forum far, far away I started a project I am determined to finish and due to me having trouble posting pictures on said forum I decided to bring this project across to where all my other crazy ideas (they just might work!) are. so to begin the 747-600 if built would have been the longest 747 ever at 279 feet long with a wingspan of 250 feet. This means stretching the fuselage by 100mm with a 40/22/38mm split and the wings by 48mm each. As you can see I have elected to keep the stretch to a minimum by removing as little as possible from the SUD and up
  10. Looks like there's a 1/72nd Boeing B-747-100 kit in design from ukrainian source - First 3D renders Sources: http://www.greenmats.club/forums/topic/5549-172-boeing-747-100 https://www.facebook.com/groups/greenmats/permalink/2251118168281046/ V.P.
  11. Hello all, Been some time since my last 727 model, but having passed my coach driving test I've been rather busy! But having been recently furloughed I've had some time to finish my Zvezda 737-800 I started some time ago, complete with 26 Decals Caribbean Airlines decals for 9Y-TAB. One of my favourite builds, and my first Zvezda build though a bit more fiddly than I thought, some over engineered bit's (the TINY bit needed to go on the wingtip for example could have been part of the mould, I ended up loosing that part so had to use a plasticard replacement)
  12. Hi everyone, long time no see. Somehow I'm back into assembling kits, due to a lockdown, of course. So, this time it is the Zvezda's triple seven, arguably their best kit in the Emirates livery by the Pas-decals (Actually three sets of decals because kit decal is way too poor). Well, the build was relatively straight and easy. Some known flaws that I'm still not capable to fix (droop wings for instance). Quite a few mistakes of mine.. All in all I've learned a lot from this build and quite happy with the result. Cheers, Steve
  13. B-17 Wheels (648529 for HKM) 1:48 Eduard Brassin HK Models have broken away from their own de facto scale and used the data they collected for their 1:32 B-17 kit to create a new tooling in 1:48. That’s got my vote, as that’s my scale. Eduard have this nice set of resin wheels to replace the injection moulded parts on the kit, with masks into the bargain. As is now usual with Eduard's smaller resin sets, they arrive in the new shallow Brassin cardboard box, with the resin parts safely cocooned in bags, and the instructions folded around acting as padding

  15. Hi all! Is it possible to convert the Airfix 1/72 UH-46 Sea Knight into a Boeing V 107-II-2? What would the external differences be? And does anyone know if there are New York Airways decals for this aircraft? THA for any replies! DennisTheBear

  17. This is my 1/72 Northrop Grumman E-8C Joint STARS build using the Heller E-3 Sentry kit and the Flightpath (David Parkins) E-8 conversion. May of 2018 I build the Heller kit as an E-3 and my opinion of the kit has not improved; very poor fit and finish almost as bad as Mach 2. But the decals were excellent. The Flightpath conversion contains a resin canoe,etched metal antennas and templates for the added doors and windows, and some white metal parts. No decals are included. The instruction are OK, but they make no mentions about marking so I used this picture from Wikipedia as my guide
  18. Hi, Hasegawa calls out Mr. Color 315 as the aircraft gray for A320 and 737-700. However I've noticed on few forum posts people recommend using 338 for Boeing. So I've got both colors and the colors look quite similar except 315 is a bit warm. What are your thoughts on which color should be used for gray? Due to work schedule I wouldn't be able to get to the airport in a day time for a week so can't compare to the real thing. Do both manufacturers use the same color or one could be a better much for Airbus and another for Boeing? Is it the same color that is used on USAF RC-135 Ri

  20. B-52G Updates (for Modelcollect) 1:72 Eduard Many of us have been waiting for a new tooled B-52 for a long time, and ModelCollect have now obliged, starting with the B-52G that we reviewed here, recently. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between.
  21. B-17F/G Flying Fortress 1:32 HK Models The B-17 that first flew in 1935 was quite a different beast than the one that flew during WWII, having a glossy bare metal finish, a traditional vertical tail with no fin fillet, and lots of glass. The press coined the term "Flying Fortress" because of the number of gunnery positions around the aircraft, which stuck and was later trademarked by Boeing. Its first attempt to gain approval and induction into the USAAF was foiled by an unfortunate accident that wrote off the prototype and killed the pilots, but it was given a second bite at the cherry
  22. I've always seen the Pan Am Boeing 747 as THE classic airliner. However I'm not that aware of all the small diferences between the various subversions of the 747, so I'm not sure which version to buy if I want to build a Pan Am plane. I know it has to be an earlier version, but which one? I've been looking at the REVELL 1/144 04863 SPACE SHUTTLE & BOEING 747 as it is a 747-121 (I think). Could that be used? Cheers and thanks in advance Hans J
  23. Boeing 737 Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning & Command version of the veritable 737, pics thanks to Steve.
  24. Hi everybody, I'm going to try a build log. It will be slow but hopefully it will get there. The subject is Airfix's 1/44 Boeing model 314 Clipper, a fine example from the golden age of luxurious, noisy and vibration-rich air travel. All detail is raised lines but in this scale I think that works better, though repairs will be tricky. I intend to omit the glass and use Krystal Klear instead to save masking. The 1989 boxing from ebay looks complete, here's the sprue shot, though actual sprues are few and far between and the breakages and escape attempts have already started. My first dilem
