  1. After 6 months since I've started this model, finally today I've finished it! This was actually the first model I've put all my effort and decided to take it in a serious way until the end. During the whole process which you can find on this topic: I've learned so much. also from feedback from other members here. Some errors were made but I've also learned with them and I will try not to repeat them on the next models! I will leave you with the pictures of the finished product. Hope you all like it!
  2. My fiancé and I flew from LHR to JFK and back last August on G-CIVI with British Airways. I have always been a great fan of the 747 having been lucky enough to grow up on BA's jump seats with a Captain for my dad during the days prior to the locked flight deck door policy. I bought this kit in New York intending to build it as BA's G-CIVI (but ended up as CIVX instead) using a mix of Authentic Airliners, 26 Decals and Draw Decals. To add a bit more to the model, I've decided to model her with the leading and trailing edge flaps fully extended at 25 degrees and all 18 tyres posed re
  3. I finished this a while back, but it has taken me time to get round to photographing. Not my favourite activity, especially with whoppers. Anyway, after a long and educational build, here is my completed 1:72 Super VC-10, based on the Mach 2 kit, as a late service British Airways G-ASGI: A few mm bigger than the Heller 707-320, she is now (marginally) my largest model! The choice of airframe was largely inspired by this picture: https://www.airliners.net/photo/British-Airways/Vickers-Super-VC10-Srs1151/1202712 There
  4. Finally... After two attempts and over two years (on and off) I am happy to present my rendition of Revells A319 kit in British Airways Chatham Dockyard livery. This is something of a composite of some of the minor changes that have happened to the Chatham scheme over the last few years. Decals are mostly the excellent kit ones and the also excellent 26 Decals set which I used for the tail and windows. Also, a big thank you to @Turbofan for the crest decals which look great. They are squeezed in between the British Airways letters and the over wing exit but this is a
  5. My next build is Airfix's 1:72 Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk.V. I was lucky enough to receive this kit for Christmas, and am looking forward to the challenges of the build. The kit contains a very detailed instruction booklet, and decals for 2 aircraft. Several of the decals are rather large (which worries me slightly due to silvering), so I may carefully cut them down. There are 5 detailed grey sprues and 2 clear, these are very clean with little to no flash and help make this look like a great kit. There are two colour schemes for this kit, the Coas
  6. Ready for inspection is my 1:72 Airfix Armstrong Whitworth Whitley GR. Mk.VII. This is a straight from the box build, built with gear down and doors open. The only variation is that I have used Vallejo acrylics in place of the recommended Humbrol. The kit went together with relative ease, and has a nice amount of detail. Thanks for looking.
  7. look 'ere 'tis.....BEA looks super smart https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/pictures-ba-turns-back-time-to-1960s-with-bea-a319-456281/
  8. Hasegawa pretty much released this little gemstone of a tiddler at the same time that British Airways retired their Trident fleet and took delivery of their first 737-236. The kit carries the same registration as BA's first (G-BGDA) which was delivered by Boeing in December 1981. That makes the kit 38 years old and like most of that age, the decals have had to be re-lacquered. The port side of the fuselage had lost its shape in storage and what looks a simple task, proved very difficult to join and make into a decent continuous profiled tube. Having just completed my 1/
  9. After a longer break ,I am back with a few builds I finished since last november. First to start with the Concorde in the huge 1/72 scale,this was a re-release of the old Heller kit with new decals.The kit itself is unchanged. After reading a few reviews about the kit being not the best in terms of fitting,I hesitated for quite a while to start it and I left it on the shelf. But finally I thought I give it a go and see what I can achieve with it. Well,the issues are there but Revell provides very good instructions which show where the problem areas are. F
  10. 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
  11. Hi all, my first post here, just wanted to share my in progress BAC/Aerospatiale Concorde, currently at the main paint stage. This is actually my first airliner, having only done fighters up until now in 1/72 scale, but it won't be my last, after this comes a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar, in the same livery. Hopefully at least. Enjoy the photos for now Turns out I haven't worked out to add an attachment yet! I'll keep working on it...
  12. Hello, Today I'm posting another commercial airliner, my Zvezda 787-8 in the British Airways Livery. Like my last post, this build also includes a video! Hopefully, you enjoy the pictures and the video!
  13. Airfix BAC 1-11 500ED. Two-Six British Airways 'Landor' decals. Ok, so if you want a beautiful, accurate 1-11 500 then you need to get hold of the Authentic Airliners resin kit. But I got this out of the stash and thought I'd have a bit of fun improving it and converting it from a short bodied 200 series 1-11 into the stretched 500 series. I've thouroghly enjoyed it from start ti finish, and have a second 500 under construction as well now. Lots of work with sheet plasticard undertaken, full build log Here The main changes were extended fuselage, extended wingtips, new wing f
  14. This is a quick fun build to finish the month after putting a lot of effort into a Lynx. I'm not sure where my current enthusiasm for airliners has come from, but I am enjoying building them, even if the large white surfaces are still a bit of a challenge for my brush painting skills, especially over grey plastic like this one. A British Airways Trident was the second aircraft that I ever flew in (the first was a Wasp), back in 1980. Tridents used to do the shuttle run from Edinburgh to Heathrow, making good use of their advanced zero-visibility automated landing syste
  15. First ever Group Build entry so be gentle on me! Took advantage of this kit being £6 on Amazon, the box shows why it's so cheap Current update on build: First time I've built a conventional airliner so this should hopefully be easy, all out of the box with BA decals too
  16. Hi all, After building a Thomson 787 I decided to take the plunge and build an A380. It's still very much work in progress, you will notice parts missing but as my second build I'm quite pleased with how it's coming along. I have made the model without landing gear as I intend to build a stand for it, I just think it looks cleaner. Most the paint I used was Humbrol hobby Spray, apart from the wings which are Halfords Ford Polar Grey (the poor pic quality doesn't do the Halfords spray justice) BA Blue was Humbrol hobby Spray Midnight Blue Please excuse the picture quality, I will get round
  17. This is my latest build, Zvezda's 787. I used the 26 Decals set for the livery, and I can definitely reccomend it!
  18. The generous response to my Lao Central SSJ-100 has encouraged me to post another RFI, this time the F-RSIN Trident 3B. I usually have five or six builds at different stages but for some reason I tend to finish them in pairs. The Trident was the other half of the pair with the SSJ. I used the plastic version of the kit which went together well. F-RSIN have really caught the character of the aircraft, particularly the kink in the wing and the various lumps and bumps underneath. The only accuracy point I picked up was the shape of the centre intake which was too sharply triangular c
  19. Hello all, I'm currently embarking on a long term project to build all of BA's current fleet available in plastic (though I have given up hope of a 777). I recently asked for some help in the modern civil forum and thanks to the help and advice in that thread I decided to pick up a Zvezda 767 at Telford. Kit decals and RR engines in place it was time t start the build. First up some sprue shots, the Zvezda kit is very nice with crisply moulded details. The decals are from Two-Six and are very nicely printed as always.
  20. Hello everybody. Since I have some time available I thought it would be nice to share my latest airliner with you. It's the Revell A320 (of course) in 1/144. I started it with target to paint it as Cyprus Airways, I had even printed my own decals for the livery, but resulted being painted as British Airways. Decals were given from a friend and are for the A319 BA Revell kit. Some are missing, some did not lay well, but it's not that bad.
  21. Hi everyone This is my Revell Concorde It has to be said it is one of the worst kits i have ever built. The Airfix Concorde is more enjoyable!!!!!!1 But im pleased with the result. Its a nice little 1/144 kit. I hand painted it for one, ran out of paint in august and havent got any since......... The windows are from RichW. Thanks Everyone
  22. Hi Everyone This is my Revell 1/144 Concorde. It was a pig to build in the fact i broke the wings off once and nose off twice when it tried to fly..... The landing gear where a nightmare as well. Overall i thought it was a rather poor kit, but it does look nice...... The kit is hand painted, theres a few more details to fo, then im done. I have windows on the way from Richw. Thanks Bradley
  23. Hello, Photographed my Revell Concord today in interesting Autumn light: setup thanks for coments! Exdraken
  24. Hello Everyone I would like to do a British Airways 787-8, but im unsure what colour to do the engines, it seems to be mixed. Some people seem to thin k they will be white, others think blue. Does anyone know what colout they will be? Thanks Bradley
  25. 3rd build, hopefully not being too optimistic here!! This will be progressed when there's nothing I can do on the DC9 and VC7, the main object of this one is the conversion ot the fuselage into a cargo 747, and shortening the stretched upper deck back to it's original configuration. The rest of the kit looks like a straightforward OOB build, with possibly some scribing round control surfaces as there doesn't seem to be any difference between these and the panel lines. Decals look excellent and areby Two Six.
