  1. For the 2001 Airshow at Leeuwarden AFB, F-16A (MLU) of the Dutch Air Force was painted with a special tail scheme depicting 323 Squadron's badge of Diane (the hunter). In latter years it has carried several other tail designs (most of which are available from Daco Products). The only photos I could find of this airframe from 2001 had rather boring loadouts but I did find an undated one where it has live GBU24s and AIM120s (though with a plain tail - so I've wielded my Modeller's Licence to produce this combination) It was bu
  2. G-BNNL was delivered to Dan-Air (hence the designation 4Q8 rather than 436) in Jan 1989 and acquired by British Airways in Nov 1992. In March 1995 ownership was transferred to BA's franchise partner GB Airways. In the late 1990s it was painted in the "Chelsea Rose" variant of the "World Image" tail designs as seen in this model built from the Daco 737-400 kit. Main paints used are Halfords Appliance White & Fiat Capri Blue, with various metal shades on the engines. Livery decals from F-Dcal, windows from Authentic Airliners and leading edges and coroguard are kit
  3. This is the third F-16 that I've finished this year and the second that needed my own KUTA! If you are interested in the other two, here are the links US Navy Aggressor and RNoAF. The Orange Jumper was started over five years ago in the early days of my return to aircraft modelling. Back then I didn't appreciate the complexity of F-16 Blocks and so technically this model is incorrect as it should be an MLU version of the "B" - most obviously it is missing the "bird cutters" in front of the cockpit. Built from a Hasegawa kit with Eduard etch, Daco decals (which included the stren
  4. DACO products would like to produce a 1/32nd Potez-Air-Fouga CM.170R Magister kit - ref.KDCC3201 Market enquiry Source: http://www.dacoproducts.com/KDCC3201.php V.P.
  5. This has been on the shelf of procrastination for a few years but having got another detail fret from Daco at Telford, it is now finished. An out of the box build with Authentic cockpit decals. It took several attempts to get a good finish from the Daco (Xtracolour) paint; thinned, brushed and polished with micromesh. And a few of its sister, which has been on here before but I suspect the photos are in some lost bucket
  6. Evening all, I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their's in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it. It's your typical short-run kit with a bit of flash here and there and no locating tabs etc, but it does have lovely surface detail and although it didn't have the quality of fit such as those from the latest Zvezda or Revell, it went together pretty well. I bought the Eastern Express KLM edition of the kit, but I real
  7. Spanish Airforce F-104G / C.8 104 Esquadron Torrejon / Madrid 1/48 another GB, another try! The Mirage GB just finished, the Flanker started long time ago... ingredients: Decal detail: found an interesting photo of a Spanish C.8. it carries I guess Expal build MK-83 GP bombs probably BR-500s http://www.916-starfighter.de/Large/Stars/wS731.htm are the wing pylons provided by DACO correct for bomb loads? convering the white wings; top side only or bottom also in white??
  8. Here is my entry for the GB, I have had this in the pile for a few years now and I think that I should take this opportunity to put it together. The yellow paint could be fun to do, I just hope that I can get a nice dense even colour. I may even be tempted to splash out on some Authentic Airlines windows for this one. The box and sprue shots are shown below. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flic
  9. The timing of this GB isn’t great for me due to the seven(!) other models I need to finish for the IPMS Scottish Nationals on 28/29 April so if I’m going to have a chance of completing a 737 by 6 May I’ll need to get cracking and try to keep things as straightforward as possible. My first contribution will be the DACO Skyline 737-400 in the older version of the HLX New York Cab livery, “Fliegen zum Taxipreis” as the slogan used to say. I have a second project in mind, another -400 in Air UK Leisure livery, but at the moment that’s no more than a slim possibility. The
  10. This model is my contribution to the current Boeing 737 STGB. Hapag-Lloyd Express aka HLX was a German low-cost airline which was established in 2002 and operated until 2007 when it became part of TUIfly. The airline used the slogan "Fliegen zum Taxipreis" (Fly for the cost of a taxi fare) and their aircraft were painted in an eye-catching livery inspired by the Yellow Cabs in New York. The kit is by DACO. Yellow paint is Humbrol 99 buffed up and coated with Klear and the light grey on the engines and lower fuselage is Xtracolor X371. Contrary to what most decal manu

Hi everybody! another very successful Group Build here at britmodeller ends today, many many entries, and GREAT results! here is my effort: Spanish Airforce F-104G / C.8 104 Escuadron, Torrejon / Madrid Hasegawa / Eduard Limited Edition 1/48 obligatory DACO improvement set (wings, pylons, gear doors, ) Decals: Series Españolas Expal/ Mk83 bombs Metal pitot WIP thread so here you are, was a GREAT GB, thanks a lot for all your kind comments and fantastic build threads!! dro
  12. Hello everybody!!! It's just few day till Christmas and I finally got my Daco 737-300 1:144!! Great!! It's my first model ever!!! I'm quite scared how it will look like when finished I'm going to make it Jet2 plane, reg G-CELK Jet2 Edinburgh. And why Jet2 and why LK? I've first flown aircraft in Jan 2012, Manchester to Prague on Jet2 737-300, but I don't remember the reg. And LK is as I currently live and work @Edinburgh and even work at the airport! Now to the model. It's pretty nice. I've found only one small dent on underneath the wi
  13. This was purchased at Telford last November, basic build was quite quick ( no real issues) and final painting + decals in June / July. Two thinned brush-painted coats of Daco WP blue for the fuselage, my own mix of Mr Hobby grey / white for the wings and decals for the leading edges and coroguard. Authentic Airliner decals for the cockpit but not for fuselage as their spacing is slightly out from the Daco window deacls. and alongside another from the WP fleet which will be "Crested Butte" - unfortunately the purple paint has gone very gritty, so will probab
  14. Tanmodel as contractor, partner or challenger for DACO's (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234988158-132-potez-air-fouga-cm170r-magister-by-daco-products-cadsmarket-enquiry/) 1/32nd Potez-Air-Fouga CM-170R Magister kit project? That's the question. Source: http://www.greenmats.club/topic/1722-tanmodel-новый-проект-в-132/ The following message was published in the Tanmodel Facebook before being promptly erased. V.P.
  15. Nearly 5 (?) years after its first announcement the DACO 1/48th injected F-104 super update/detailing set (http://ultra.glo.be/daco/KDCC4802.html) dedicated to the Hasegawa's Starfighter kit seems in progress. The first test shots are now in the hands of Mister DACO, Danny Coremans. No release date yet but it will be probably available at Telford's SMW 2013.

  16. Hi I started this project before the very nice Airfix PR Mk.XIX had been announced (had I known I would have waited for that one instead ) The basis for this is the Academy Mk.XIVc kit with the Daco correction nose / spinner with radiators and gear legs The bowser wing with lower camera ports comes from the Heritage Aviation Resin PR.XIX kit. (Didn't have the airwaves conversion set). I used the Aires cockpit set for the Mk.XIVc with some major alterations to get in the PR.XIX specific stuff. Seatbelts comes from the HGW line of fabric seatbelts (this sure beats pe seatbelts by miles) 4
  17. Finally finished my F-104G aircraft 26 + 90 from MFG 2, German Marine Hasegawa kit with Ultracast detail set in resin. Resin bang-seat. Cannot remember if the burner can were resin as well. I've used Daco's excellent decal set for this. Future on the canopy and modelmaster gloss and flat lacquer mixed. Thought a German Marineflieger would be rather weathered, considering its operational environments. Clean, no weapons save the internal gun. I scatched the chaff / flare launchers aft and the mounting plates they sit on. I also scratched a position light on the spine and under the belly, in f
  18. Hi All, Well you know what they say, you can never have too many spitfires... Just finished build number 2 for the year, which going at my slow work rate would be something of an achievement if i hadn't got most of the actual construction complete before Christmas I started this in the vain hope/anticipation that a major manufacturer would bring out a more accurate mk.XIV from the box but well..theres always next year... As the title says, this is the Academy Mk XIVc kit with the Daco improvement set grafted on to it. The kit itself is lovely to build, with great fit and finely rende
  19. I notice that the Skyline 737s are listed as Future Releases on Hannants - with airline decals this time. Any idea on timescales? http://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?adv=1&product_category_id=103&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=8206&product_type_id=all_aircraft_kits&code=&scale_id=957&keyword_search=&setPerPage=100&sort=0&search_direction=asc&save_search_name=&save_search= Also, is the A300 the Airfix tooling? Thanks, Andrew
  20. Hi Starting a WIP for this though not a start to finish build as I've already started Started this to practice with a resin conversion set and because Airfix will surely release a super duper XIV like their XIX. I also have a low back XIV and another Daco set so its practice for that too Construction is mainly done. I made a right mess of cutting the kit nose off but its mostly tidy now Daco cannon covers used as this will be an 'E' rather than the kit 'C' Underside with new rads It will be finished as RN135, later scheme Whad'ya think?
