Another Swiss airline for my collection. This is a new kit by Eastern Express and as such its of the same good quality as all their newer airliner kits. Still short run and nothing for beginners though but nicely molded parts with fine engraved panellines. Nicely detailed but they overdid it again esp. for a kit in that small size.Some parts are so small,they are prone to get lost by simply looking at them... The landing gear has lots of very small parts,here I wish EE would mold the gear legs in one single part rather than 4 ! just for the leg.... Nonetheless a wonderful little F-27 from EE. The decals are very well printed and nice to work with. The build is a bit challenging considering those tiny parts but the fit,with some careful preparation,is quite good. Construction of this model took a few months,with breaks,to complete,but it was a fun build and I am looking forward to the EE Fokker 50 that I recently bought. Painted with Revell enamels and clear coated with Tamyia Semi-Gloss Balair was a subsidiary of Swissair and operated 4 F-27s in the 60s until early 70s,mainly on Swissair routes. Cheers, And with "something else" The MD-80 can be seen in the next RFI
