  1. G-BNWA was the first Rolls-Royce powered Boeing 767 to take to the air. She was delivered to British Airways in 1990 and is still going strong at the age of 28 although I believe retirement is due later this year. Sister aircraft G-BNWB actually joined BA first but in terms of first flight date Whisky Alpha is BA’s oldest aircraft. Back in the summer of 2016 she took me from EDI to LHR and the enjoyable short flight reminded me that the current BA livery wasn’t represented in my collection so I dug out an old Revell kit and here is the result. The Revell Boeing 767-300 was the kit that really got me started with airliners about 25 years ago. It isn’t without its flaws (mainly affecting the engines) but it’s still one of my favourite airliner kits and forms the basis of a good model. It’s one of the few airliner kits where the fit is good enough for me to depart from my normal “stick it together and mask it” building and attach the wings after painting. The build is pretty much OOB apart from some correction to the pylons on the Revell RB211s. For absolute accuracy these need total reworking but I contented myself with fixing the more obviously visible errors ahead of the wing. I also added strakes to the engines and a few small fairings to the fuselage. It was necessary to tweak the panel lines in a couple of places to accommodate the eight door layout. Paint is Halfords Appliance White, Fiat Capri Blue and Racking Grey with Tamiya and Revell metallics. Decals are by TwoSix and Authentic Airliners with Scaleliners corroguard. Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome. Dave G
  2. The last of the batch. The decals for the Gulf Air version also come from an older Revell 767 release. Their 1992 kit with British Airways/Gulf Air decals and RR engine option. These decals were in similar condition as the Lauda ones,but at least they stayed on the model. Utmost TLC was necessary to get the decals layed down and around the nose.They were quite stiff and brittle in some places,even after the application of liquid decal film. Some touch ups with paint were unavoidable but it came out better than I expected. Same paints used on this as on my previous 767s. It was quite a task working on 6 767s simultaneously but also fun and I learned a lot about the type.The many door and window layouts in particular,which lead to careful research of the subject.A good thing that I have a very informative book about the 767,it was a massive help during those builds. Thats it for now with this type,3 more Revell 767s are in my stash,but they will be done another time. Now I am off to my 777s and 787s that are in production. Stay tuned Alex
  3. Finally my (for now) last batch of Boeing 767s are off the production line. It took a bit longer than planned as life got in the way. Now here we are again and I continue my Boeing 767 parade. This is the very good Zvezda 767-300 kit,which in comparison to the Revell version,is more detailed,esp. the landing gear and engines. The fit overall is very good,although for some reason the kit I used for the Qantas version suffered from a seriously warped fuselage. It took quite a while to straighten it out. The other Zvezda 767s were fine,so I assume this was an isolated incident. Qantas had often painted some of their aircraft in special liveries,so this came probably not by surprise when they promoted Disney's animation hit "Planes" The decals come from PAS decals and are of very good quality. The kangaroo logo is a white printed decal which is surprisingly opaque on the red paint. The decal sheet itself has many details but as they have no white backing,some of the details or the windows are useless as they will either disappear or become too dark on surfaces that are not white. Another note to be taken ,is to use any solvents sparringly or not at all ,while applying the decals.Much better to use only enough water to slide the decals into position. The paints are Gunze,the white for the fuselage was done with Gunze white surfacer 1500,gloss coated with Gunze Premium Gloss prior and after decalling. The windows are from Authentic Airliners. Cheers Alex
  4. This I had originally planned to finish in the old Lauda colors by using the decals from the 1991 Revell first release. But unfortunately the decals were beyond use,even after clear coating them prior to application. They simply would not stay on the model or were silvering very badly. So I had to use plan b and repaint the whole model and finish it in its last scheme. I had a decal set from BRAZIL decals,which offers a selection of different 767 liveries,among them this Lauda CS and the Lauda Air Italy. Those decals worked well and the project was solved. After completing I came to the conclusiin that this livery is actually more elegant than the earlier variant. Windows are again from AA. The most complicated part on each 767 was their respective door and windows arrangement used by ailines.During my builds I came across 4 !! different layouts All paints come from Gunze,the numbers I dont have in mind right now,but if anyone has questions about them,I can certainly recheck the exact Gunze paints I used. Cheers, Alex
  5. Next up in my 767 collection is LTU SÜD Boeing 767-300ER. LTU SÜD was a subsidiary of Dusseldorf based charter airline LTU,and had its base at Munich airport. It operated a fleet of 757-200s and 767-300ER to various holiday destinations. I remember the 767-300 standing next to our DC-8-63 in Mombasa when we were boarding for our return flight to Switzerland back in october 1992. I was still a teenager back then and as soon as we got home,I went to the local modelshop to pick up the Revell 767 kit with these markings. The result of my build was less than stellar,partially to my limited modelling skills and patience back then and also because of the mediocre decal set provided in the kit. Anyway,I had much fun with my model back then. Now,a good 30 years later,I thought it was time to rebuild this aircraft,this time though,I used the Zvezda kit as a base,just because the kit has the correct window and door layout for the LTU version and I also planned on using only the registration and the white LTU and LTU SUD markings from the afforementioned Revell kit. The whole livery was airbrushed and for the details I used parts from the PAS detail set and decals from my spares box. Compared to the Revell 767,the Zvezda kit is mire detailed and also more accurate in some areas. All panel lines are very fine and recessed,same goes for the flaps on the wings. They are a bit too fine for my liking,on the wings I think the Revell kit is better done. The landing gear and wheels are much better and more detailed on the Zvezda kit. Both kits are very nice and considering the fact that the Revell version came out a good 25 years before the Zvezda kit,it still holds up very well.A big bonus is also the engine option. PW or RR engines are provided on some Revell kits,alas Zvezda gives you only PW engines. Paints used are Gunze white primer,gloss coated with Gunze Premium gloss and Revell red 31. Wings are painted with Gunze light grey 315,and my Tamyia mix of 66 and 56 for the corogard. Metallics are from Gunze as well. Apart from the poir decals from the Revell kit,the build was easy and straight forward.The kit goes together really well. Cheers Alex Some photos to compare the Revell (BA) and the Zvezda kit (LTU)
  6. This is the original Revell 767-300 kit that came with Gulf Air and British Airways decals and additional RollsRoyce engines in 1992. The decals were not in the best condition,although I used the Gulf Air decals for an other 767. The BA decals had an error in the tail,so I ordered a set from 26decals that also offered the option to build all BA -300s as well as the -200s that flew in the USA. The windows are from Authentic Airliners,quite an adventure to get the correct layout for each 767... The build was straight forward.Everything fits very well and not a lot of filler was needed. The only thing thats quite annoying,is all those different windows and door layouts the 767-300s have in airline service.I found out about 4 ! different layouts throughout my builds... But thats not the kits fault. I really like the Revell 767,and I recently bought 2 of the Chelsea Rose release as well as another 1991 Lauda kit.I still have some decals for the 767... Painted with Revell,Gunze and Tamyia paints. Revell 371 for the grey upper fuselage,Tamyia Royal blue for the lower part and engines. Gunze 315 for the light grey on the wings and a mix of Tamyia 56 and 66 for the corogard panels.Clear coated with Gunze Premium clear. I am planning on building most of the BA fleet in the Landor livery as I think this was one of the smartest and most elegant liveries ever designed.There are still a few types needed to add,so this will be a story to be continued... Cheers Alex Next up in line in the next days are Gulf Air 767-300 LTU SÜD 767-300ER LAUDA 767-300ER QANTAS 767-300 Special Livery
  7. This is the first of 6 Boeing 767s that I built simultanously. Revell's Boeing 767 kit is already 30 years old and got recently a re-release as Chelsea Rose British Airways. For its age,the kit still stands up well,even compared to the newer Zvezda kit. It has fewer parts and is overall simpler in design but it captures the lines of the 767 quite well. For my conversion I used the first release kit from 1991,that came with Lauda and LTU Süd decals.(More on those builds later.. ) I had the ELAL decals for some years now and planned the build for a while,but other projects delayed the realisation. The decals were from Liveries Unlimited and seemed to be in perfect condition,but upon application they showed their age.They started to tear as soon as they came out of the water and were also quite stiff. A coat of liquid decal film solved the tearing but the stiffness remained...only careful application of softener helped,but then they started to tear up again. Lot of TLC along with foul language and careful touch-ups led to an acceptable result. The build and conversion itself were quite easy.5 windows in front and 5 behind the wings needed to be removed,then glue together the fuselage parts,followed with some filling and sanding and rescribe some lost panel lines. The parts all go together really well and the fit is overall excellent. Painted with Gunze and Tamyia paints and the white for the fuselage is Gunze white primer coated with Gunze Premium clear. I originally planned to build the first Boeing 767-200 of ELAL,4X-EAA,but when aplying the decals the letters "A" for the registration fell victim to the carpet monster,so the second 767 was chosen.As I found nice pictures from the delivery of the 767,I chose not to weather it and build it factory fresh. Cheers Alex Next up is the Revell Boeing 767-336 British Airways in Landor livery...
  8. Another one for my collection of special liveries. The All Nippon Airways "Fly Panda" scheme I found very eye catching when I first saw pictures of the real aircraft. Hasegawa is always a safe bet when it comes to special liveries from japanese airlines and the Fly Panda scheme was no exception. The decals are nicely printed but a bit tricky to apply on the model. They do not fit perfectly and some careful trimming and spacing is required to get everything in place. The cockpit window comes from an old AHS 767 detail set as Hasegawas window decal is way off in shape and the wing coroguard panels are from Liveries Unlimited. It was a joyful build for in between and is a very catchy sight on my shelf Cheers
  9. Here is my finished Boeing 767-200 in 1/200 made from the original Hasegawa American Airlines boxed variant that for those that can remember them, the series went on and fell off the back end of the original Hasegawa Love Liner200 Series. If my memory serves me as well as I hope it does, Hasegawa were quick off the mark to model their original 767 kit when Boeing first released the same. I've got some of the ANA, JAL and Delta original kits but their decals are now pretty much throw-aways as these old 1/200 kits seem to have only ever been stored in damp garages or attic's by their original owners on the basis that the kit looked good at the time of original release but the owner never got around to building it due to being a civil and less interesting subject perhaps...? So this really is the ROO McCoy, or should I say Real McCoy. Using some recently sourced very old Qantas Decals printed in the 90's by ROO-DECALS, lovingly printed in Australia. Shame Qantas retired their 767-200 Boeings as I think this simple livery looks good on a 767. Here's Kanger and Roo for you.... I hope you enjoy the finished article as much as I did so modelling it John
  10. The original kit is the old Hasegawa 1/200 American Airlines 767-200 kit from the 1990's. Bought for £8 from my local model shop in West Drayton (Aviation Hobbies) a few months ago, I have saved this in time for my Farnborough IPMS club's February Antipodean competition next month. Appropriately, I purchased the intended Qantas decals from Australia which only took 2 weeks to arrive by post - and they are the genuine down-under "ROO-DECAL" product! I think the seller must have been having a clear out as I received 3 sets of decals for the price of the advertised single set. Started last night in-between floating the last of the decals onto my last 777 on the bench, the kit has immediately gone together with all the ease and great engineering that Japanese kit manufacturers are well known for. Up against a 777-300 in the same 1/200 scale, the 767-200 looks rather inferior Thanks for looking in John
  11. This was a sideproject that I had built on and off between other builds for over a year. The Hasegawa LL200 airliner series contained many popular airliners such as the Boeing 747 in almost every version,DC-10,MD-11,DC-9 and among many others,the Boeing 767. Sadly,most of these airliners from this famous series are no longer produced by Hasegawa and also the 767-200 is unlikely to appear again as Hasegawa modified the molds for the 767-300 which is still available. These models are very accurate and easy to build and in their 1/200 scale also not too big and vitrine friendly. My Hasegawa 767-200 kit was actually the Japan Airlines issue,but I once bought a larger number of decal sets for Hasegawa airliners on ebay,among them this nice Delta Airlines set. It was in pretty good condition despite its age,research showed that the original Delta 767-200 kit was released back in 1982. Some small details such as the cockpit windows come from a newer Boeing 777 Hasegawa set and the coroguard panels are from a detail set.Apart from that its completely OOB built. Paints are the usual Revell and Testors enamels,the whole model was then sealed with MicroScale Gloss clear. The Boeing 767-200 in the depicted "Spirit of Delta" scheme can be seen at the Delta heritage museum in Atlanta where it is preserved. Enjoy
