  1. I've got a few things planned for this GB, not all of them will happen of course, but first up is a Trident 1C, using the Eastern Express kit. The Trident 1C is only just eligible - I'll be building G-ARPH (for no particular reason) which was delivered to BEA in March 1964. It'll be in British Airways colours - I have both the kit decals and a Two Six sheet to use for this. Here's the kit - looking forward to getting started: cheers Julian
  2. Here is the Revell Embraer 190 finished as G-LCYM of BA Cityflyer as she appeared at the time of delivery in 2010. I’ll say at the outset that this is not a model I’m really happy with and I deliberated for a while (“swithered” as we say in Scotland) about whether to put it in RFI at all. The actual build was fine apart from having to straighten the winglets and fix some sink marks, notably inside the engine intakes. I added a bit of Extra Tech p/e and painted the model with Halfords Appliance Gloss White, Fiat Capri Blue and Racking Grey plus Tamiya and Revell metallics. I intended to use the decal set from 8ADecs but let’s be polite and just say it is definitely not one of their better efforts. I have had good results from 8A decals in the past so I was rather caught out. The blue is too dark and purplish but that’s the least of it. The tail decals have clearly never been compared to the real aircraft or test-fitted to the Revell kit. The fin part of the flag is too big and needs to be reduced in height which throws some of the other alignments out. In addition the sections of the flag on the rear fuselage above the stabs and round the apu exhaust bear no resemblance to reality whatever. I eventually achieved an approximation of the real thing but only after cutting and splicing wet decals and doing a LOT of touching up plus some freehand brush painting. Matters weren’t helped by flaking ink and overall it was not a happy modelling experience. More flaking ink caused me to bin 8A’s “photo real” cockpit windscreen in favour of a spare from Authentic Airliners. I kept the 8A cabin windows which are correctly spaced for the Revell kit (unlike Authentic Airliners) although I had to touch them up in a couple of places. Apart from the registrations (yet more flaking ink) and a few small items the rest of the livery is a spares box special. The inaccurate flashes on the front doors were replaced with shortened Revell A319 flashes. I used fuselage titles from the slightly unlikely source of an old Minicraft 737 sheet. These are fractionally too small but a much closer match to the fuselage blue than the ones from 8A. The spares box also yielded the white lettering for the nose wheel doors and the blue letters above the windscreen since the ones 8A supplied were too small and printed black. Detail decals came from the kit sheet. The finished result can pass for a BA Embraer 190 and I’m relieved that I do actually have a completed model to show at the end of the saga but it really wasn’t a lot of fun and the model looks better from a distance. When I bought the E190 sheet I also bought 8A’s El Al Boeing 787-9 sheet. The Dreamliner model is painted and I was about to start the decals but this experience has put me off using the 8A sheet so I have ordered screen printed El Al decals from Isradecals instead. Hopefully they will give me rather less hassle! Thanks for looking and constructive criticism is always welcome. Dave G
  3. I used the Revell A319 kit as well as Reskit wheels and decals from 26 decals on this build. If you are interested in a build video, I made one on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJUOEC-hzAM
  4. My workbench is beginning to look relatively empty again(!), as I have a few builds coming to an end... Time to start something new! I have a couple of Revell 767-300's in the stash. One was picked up on eBay a while ago, when this particular kit (with the Rolls Royce engine option) was getting harder to find. The other was picked up much more recently, after Revell re-released it! I've built one in the past and it's not too bad. It has a few inaccuracies, which I will attempt to fix along the way. Here are the two boxes: The plastic inside is identical, so I'm not sure why the newer version is so much bigger... The new kit very helpfully comes with BA decals, in the 'Chelsea Rose' livery and depicts G-BNWB. I first flew this aircraft in 2003 as part of my conversion training onto the 757/767 fleet: Commander's names have been pixellated in the interest of GPDR! Here is the decal sheet supplied with the kit: Very crisp and detailed, but I'm not sure why the white elements of the tail design were included - they might need to be removed before application, as I'm sure I will not be able to exactly match the colour! The older kit will be finished in the 'Sweden' livery, worn by G-BNWU. I first flew in this aircraft in 2004, after completing ETOPS training to allow me to commence flying on the BA long haul network: The decals are from V1 Decals in Canada and look rather good: Hopefully work on these two will be underway soon!
  5. 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
  6. My build of the Airfix 1/144 BAC Aerospatiale Concorde (08666) A straight OOB build of one of my favourite aircraft in my favourite BA scheme. Although the Airfix boxing used was from 2005, the Seventies BA decals came from the Airfix boxing from that time: BTW, this is the first of four simultaneous Concorde builds that I am doing for a Concorde GB over on the ATF. 1. British Airways, 2. BOAC Prototype, 3. BAC Prototype, 4. Air France Prototype: Hopefully, it won't be long before the rest are completed. Dave
  7. 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!
  8. 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 ready to touch down. I'll work out a base diorama later to reflect a '100ft above' end of the runway setting. There's nothing special or new about building the Revell 747-400 (I've also just completed the same kit in Qantas's Wunala Dreaming livery over on the RFI pages) but I thought the wing conversion I have used here may be of interest to other modellers considering the challenge. The fuselage pictured below is base primed but I did go to the trouble and effort to correct the sunken fuselage cheeks - I am sure others have done better than me here as the first class window area is a very questionable shape when the 2 fuselage halves drop out of Revell's moulds and I could not face a carve up of my pending Zvezda 747-800 front end which would have put matters to right good and proper there. I've also used brass rod pins for the tail plane fixing as the kits plastic pins were useless. Here we go. Cutting out the kits flaps and leading edge flap enclosure areas Using Tamiya 0.2mm plastic card, I boxed the areas in And after a tidy and trim up, and with the flap runner guides adapted with their internal hinges drooped to 25 degrees The third party RB211 singing Rollers from Braz and third party flap set from Shapeways. The forward and trailing edge flap sets amounts to around £64 delivered. I forgot to picture the leading edge set prior to applying them to the wings. Trailing edge flaps And the leading edge flaps now included (port side only so far I am not sure there is much need to add any or more to this WIP as the rest remains pretty much standard civil aircraft build stuff. I hope to have the completed 747 over on the RFI pages in July time. Thanks for looking in John
  9. 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 is little to distinguish the Negus airframes, and Golf India as far as I know had no particularly distinguished history – not going on to RAF service afterwards, for example – but I like building ‘vanilla’ models to represent a forgotten moment in time, rather than recreating a famous airframe. With so few VC-10s built, its quite hard to come by one without an interesting story – Gulf War veteran, taxiing at Bruntingthorpe, Sultan's personal transport, blown up by terrorists..Golf India achieved none of these accolades, but does represent a late build Super in honest BA revenue service in the autumn of the 10's civilian life. I’ve tried to create with this model a visually striking and reasonably accurate representation of the Super VC-10. When dealing with a very basic and limited kit like this, where no details can be relied upon as accurate, there is a danger of driving oneself slowly crazy as the list of fixes mounts up, especially with a large plane - and this is meant to be a fun hobby. So I make no apologies for inaccuracies that are undoubtedly there, but at the same time I warmly invite anyone to point them out, after all can be useful for those who follow after with later, and better builds. Also pro apologia, there isn't a single straight edge or smooth surface in the kit, so its all down to my sanding and finishing, and plenty knarly close up! The build thread will give you the gory detail, but the main structural work involved converting the nose to be a more accurate, flush profile – in the end this meant pretty much scratch building it. This was hard. The fuselage has been extended with 3D printed plugs to create a Super VC-10. This work was not as difficult as I anticipated, and I have learnt a lot about 3D part finishing along the way. This technology has a lot to offer us, and there are other areas where I could have employed it – for example replacing the errant window line on the rear fuselage – that would have been relatively easy to design and print. I’d like to thank those who followed the build and provided indispensable encouragement, advice and resources along the way, particularly @71chally for a very useful nose reference pic and @Scott Garard for the British Airways logos. I’d also like to thank my Mum…who in the absence of my regular print shop actually printed the decals for me! (She is a retired graphic design teacher with a decent laser printer, so this isn’t as mad as it sounds). I could also thank BA for painting their planes white and not leaving them bare metal - I think if I had to do this in BMF, with the amount of filling and sanding I had to do, I would be in The Priory by now... Would I recommend the Mach 2 kit? Well, its tricky. I can't see how it is an advance - even marginal - on either the Anigrand resin or the Airways vacform, although I haven't built either. To put it into context – I didn’t use anything smaller than the engine pods from the original kit plastic. I think Darth Vader has more original components than this model. In its favour though, Mach 2 is marginally cheaper and more available than either of the alternatives, and it will build up easier. The wings attached remarkable easily for example. But without extensive mods, it will not be an accurate model, and if you are keen enough on VC-10s to build one in this scale, that will probably bother you. There is still, in 2020, a vacancy for the position of decent 1:72 VC-10 kit. Not an international scandal of course, but when I can buy a very nice 72nd kit of the Il-62 from HpH, or even the An-225 from Modelsvit, albeit for an arm and a leg, you can't blame a chap for looking forlorn! Anyway, it was a good lockdown project, though I do think it drove me little crazy at times and my attention span is now completely shot. For something a bit different, I have moved on to tiny car models done on my 3d printer, which make fun diorama accessories. I call this “British Engineering – A Paradox”: Thanks for stopping by! Harry
  10. 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 accurate. BA have since move the BA lettering closer to the door to leave a bit more space for the crest. This was a poor kit and by that I mean this exact one I used. The wing tips where poorly moulded requiring some reshaping and the fuselage halves where warped. In the right light you can see the top of the fuselage isn’t perfect and I should have spent more time on it but it is what it is. She won’t win any awards but I’m satisfied with this build and it’s given me encouragement to build more airliners. Paints used: Halfords Appliance White Vallejo Model Air French Blue Model Air White mixed with Model Air Pale Blue Grey (wings) Revell acrylics Humbrol Clear Gloss Varnish W&N Galleria Matte The WIP can be found here:
  11. 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 Coastal Command version pictured on the box, and The British Overseas Aircraft Corporation. My son has chosen The British Overseas Aircraft Corporation scheme of 1942, which has no rear or nose guns or glass. I plan to make this an out of the box build, using Vallejo acrylics throughout. I hope to learn more about this aircraft along the way.
  12. 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.
  13. look 'ere 'tis.....BEA looks super smart https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/pictures-ba-turns-back-time-to-1960s-with-bea-a319-456281/
  14. 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 1/200 Hasegawa Negus L1011, I felt it an appropriate time to get this other Negus livery kit put together. That's as far as I have got for the moment. This kit make the Airfix 1/72 BE2 kit look big !
  15. 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. First I planned to go with the movable nose but the clear parts were very brittle,so I decided to glue it in. Being such a huge model,I thought the landing gear could use some extra details so I made hydraulic cables and binders out of copper wire. Also the flaps were installed in a slightly lowered angle,like they were when the Concorde was standing at the gate. Besides the nose,I experienced not much other issues,the kit went together quite well. Paints are my usual mix of Tamyia Pure White out of the spray can and other colors are Revell and Testors enamels . The decal sheet is enormous and provides marking options for all of BA's Concordes. Once finished its a huge model and I had some difficulties finding a decent space to place her,let alone getting some good pics... Hope you like her
  16. 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...
  17. 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!
  18. 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 fences & flap tracks, engine pylons, engine hushkits, and a reshaped nose. The decals from Two-Six were superb and a delight to use. A plus is that the sheet covers all BA Landor 1-11's incluing the short bodied 200's, so if you don't want to do all the extending work, you can just do the wing fences, flap tracks, and nose. I chose to do G-AVMO which was preserved at Cosford for many years and is now at east Fortune in Scotland, very fitting really as it was named 'Lothian Region'. Enough words, here is the completed conversion. And 'with something else' - another 1-11 500, this one a Welsh Models Vac with Two-Six BEA decals. Thanks for looking. On with the second conversion now, which will be in BEA Red Square finish, to show the BEA/BA 1-11 500 in its first and last schemes. John
  19. 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 systems ( a world first at the time) to keep running when the other airlines (in those days British Midland and B-Cal) came to a halt. This is the old Airfix kit of 1966 vintage (mine was an early 1990s re-issue), pretty much out the box. Cockpit windows are a little dodge and would definitely benefit from filling and a decal, but otherwise it is a nicely fitting kit. Of course it has a number of accuracy challenges, not least the cabin window layout, lack of wing to fuselage fairing and the wings are too straight. But unless you know all about Tridents, you would never guess! I altered the nose wheel to be offset to one side and used Krystal Klear for the cabin windows (with a black "screen" behind them), which seems to have worked really well (although a couple of them haven't fully cleared yet). Otherwise, what you see is what you get in the box! FredT
  20. 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
  21. 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 to Hi res when it's finished PROBLEM I ripped my Flight Deck Decals, does that mean I have to spend £12 on a brand new set? The one that came with the model in the Airbus House Colours wasn't good enough. Thanks
  22. This is my latest build, Zvezda's 787. I used the 26 Decals set for the livery, and I can definitely reccomend it!
  23. 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 compared to photographs. Plastic strip, superglue and Milliput plus a few minutes of carving and filing took care of that. To my eyes the cabin window decals look slightly too big but unless you take the expensive option of sacrificing a TwoSix sheet there really isn’t a suitable replacement. I sourced alternative “British” titles to align better with the windows but I'm still not 100% happy. They came from an old Flightpath sheet intended (I think) for a Tristar. The registration had to be G-AWZJ on which I had my one and only Trident flight (GLA-LHR) shortly before she retired in 1985. It’s also the only time I’ve flown in a rear-facing seat, a strange experience rather like being on an airborne train. Since I’d never previously been on a Trident I was unfamiliar with the aircraft’s idiosyncrasies and I still remember getting slightly concerned by the length of the take-off run at Glasgow and the looming possibility of a very large splash in the Black Cart Water. Needless to say Zulu Juliet unstuck in her own good time and the rest of the short flight was great. Happy memories! Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome. http://SAM_0127 by David Griffiths, on Flickr http://SAM_0130 by David Griffiths, on Flickr http://SAM_0122 by David Griffiths, on Flickr http://SAM_0124 by David Griffiths, on Flickr
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
