  1. Lufthansa took delivery of their first Boeing 727 in 1964 . I always liked their livery from that time so I wanted to build one of my many Revell 727 kits in that scheme. The decals are from Classic Airlines by Nick Webb. They are nicely printed and fit almost perfect on the Revell kit. The build was more or less OOB,I only changed the wheels and used the Airfix ones. The kits wheels are too big and have no real detail on them. The front gear doors were replaced with self made ones from evergreen plastic as well. Paints are Revell 04 white,Testors aircraft gr
  2. Finally completed what began as a fall project of building a pair of 727s; it stretched into winter, and just now finished in spring. This was a first for me…building two models at once. Proved to be quite a challenge that was not only time consuming, but pushed the limits on space! My workbench just isn’t large enough for more than one-at-a-time, so new rule…just one…finish it…start another. No more “two-fers.” Here’s some history and photos posed in the bright sun and “in the hangar.” First is the somewhat historic Northwest Airlines 727-51 (-100), N467US, that became infamous d
  3. Just finished the B-727/100, Stretched VEB 1/100 to version 200, home made decals
  4. Here is the Revell Boeing 727-100 in the classic orange and blue of Hapag-Lloyd circa 1984. The inspiration was this, one of my all time favourite airliner photos, although my model depicts an earlier version of the livery. The kit first appeared in 1964 and has been reissued on and off since, most recently in the colours of Germania whose 727s were actually leased from Hapag-Lloyd. Although it’s probably the most accurate injection-moulded 1/144 727, the Revell kit suffers from sunken windows, raised detail and rashes of rivets. However with a bit of t.l.c. it scrubs up quite nice
  5. Some ancient Airfix Boeing 727-100s... These kits have become rare items by now and getting sold sometimes at silly prices. I was lucky to get a collection of Airfix 727s from a modeller who cleared his stash,and among those were 2 of the 727-100 kits. Interestingly the fuselage offers separate doors and cargo doors compared to the later -200 version of Airfx and also the nose is better rendered on the -100. The rest of the parts are the same as in the -200 kit,which means also the wing fences are in the wrong spot and need to be relocated. Another intere
  6. This particular model was done by me somewhere back between 1991-1993.I cant remember exactly. Back in those days I brushpainted all my models,sometimes more successful...sometimes less... This one belonged somwhere in the middle. It was first built as Wardair Canada but over the years it had badly yellowed and also the seams were visible in some places and the overall paint was not correct compared to the real one. Last year I decided to redo the model,and give it a fresh paint and a nice new livery. I searched on Ebay and found an originial vintage Revell/Lode
  7. Between my renovation projects and other builds, I decided to do something easy. Hasegawas 1/200 LoveLiners are a perfect diversion from nerve shredding projects... Built straight out of the box,Hasegawa's Boeing 727 kit is still one of the best ones there is. Despite being in the tiny 1/200 scale, its probably the most accurate representation of this famous classic that is available as a plastic moulded kit. The fit is also perfect and adds for a fun and quick build. Painted with Revell and Testors enamels. Hope you like it
  8. Heller's 1/125 Boeing 727 kit is one of their more questionable ones. The overall shape is actually very good and represents the graceful lines of the 727. The cockpit area is sadly misshaped and if built up unchanged,the model looks very strange. Also the landing gear is very basic and due to my changes in the nose area it was impossible to install it properly.Thats why I decided to place the model on a display stand. I spent a long time in reshaping the nose,using tons of putty and having endless sanding sessions. During that time,I lost the hope of pro
  9. The Boeing 727 was one of the best selling airliners from the early 60s until the end of production in 1984 with 1832 aircrafts produced. Some are still in service today. With so many airlines operating the 727 over the years,there is a great choice of liveries available. Airfix re-issued their 727-200 kit in 2010 and 2012 with nice decal sets printed by Cartograph and Revell re-issued their ancient 727-100 kit in early 2016 in the attractive Germania livery,done by Daco. I gues both kits don't need much introduction,as these have been available frequently over the
  10. Some of my recent builds are 2 Revell Boeing 727-100s. This kit was re-released earlier in 2016 with Germania decals,which is on my workbench at the moment among other projects. Its a very nice kit given its age and quite accurate compared to the Airfix kit. The build is pretty straight without any bigger issues.It needs a fair amount of filler though,esp.the windows. The cockpit windows are "holes",while the cabin windows are engraved only.So its unavoidable to fill them and use decals,otherwise one needs to drill out all windows if clear ones are desired.
  11. I acquired today one of these and at first sight it is very nice, with the main parts in injected plastic and detail parts in resin. It has the panel lines too deep for my taste, but otherwise I think it is a good kit. Are there any known accuracy problems? Thanks, Carlos
  12. Hi, Simply question PanAm operated 727-21 planes in European routes and there are many pictures of those in Berlin airports. My understanding is that -21 is referring to Boeing's customer numbering. So is -21 plane a 100-series or 200-series? Br. Vesa
  13. I wasn't going to post this last build of 2012, I really had a hard time of masking and avoiding some paint run especially along radius line work. However, I spent a long time modifying the kit from the 200 series (longer fuselage) to the 100 series and thought i would share it anyway. This particular reg ZS-SBE was hijacked May 1972. Anyway hope you enjoy, and don't be too critical about the paint job. I am going to look into making use of masking sheet and a small vinyl cutter for intricate masking shapes.
  14. Hi Everyone Im doing an Airfix Boeing 727-200 in Iberia Colours. Looking at photos it appears the instructions are all wrong. The instructions state the 727 have grey wings and tail plains with a grey belly. Looking at photos it appears that the aircraft in the box, EC-CFI, Has white tail planes with a bm leading edge and the belly is just white. The main wings is what i need help on. The photos i have found show the wings being white, but the front is silvery grey, can anyone confirm to me what colour that is was and if it is on the underside. Thanks Bradley
