Following in the shadow of the arrival of BA's last Retro Livery into Heathrow this lunchtime today (747-436 Negus and Negus in 1/1 scale!) here is Hasegawa's 1/200 kit wearing 26Decal's BOAC 100 Year Centenary livery LaserJet printed decal set. I have replaced the kit's GE CFM's with a set of Contrails RB211 Turbofan Rollers in resin - they were OK but no match for the quality that Braz provides in 1/144 of the same. A great fun and up-to-date Civil topic to build, Thanks for looking in. KEEP CALM and BOW-AC ON ! cheers - John
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
Hasegawas famous LoveLiner Series had lots of classic airliners/liveries to choose from in the 80's and 90's. Sadly their offerings have been reduced to a mere few and many of the classics such as the DC-10s,TriStar's 747's are long sold out and are now sold at sometimes ridiculous prices. Luckily i managed to get hold of some of Hasegawa's early releases and the Japan Airlines DC-10-40 is one of them. Like all of Hasegawa's airliners,they consist of only a few parts and the fitting is very good as well as the accuracy.This one was built OOB,using only kits parts and decals. Hasegawa even included the original DC-10-40 Pratt & Whitney JT9D-59 engines chosen by Japan Airlines.A nice touch that is not always the case with other manufacturers.. The decals were still in good condition and went on without any problems. This is my last airliner post for the time being as I am forced to stop production due to our house renovation. Cheers,
