Today, I put the finishing touches on my Zvezda Boeing 737 MAX 8. Not perfect, but it looks great, and I'm quite pleased with it. This livery gets a knocking from some, but personally I think it looks great, especially on the MAX. Build - kit went together very well as per Zvezda kits Paints - Humbrol and Halfords spray cans, details with Humbrol enamels and acrylics Decals - Livery decals by 8Decs, windows and details from Authentic Airliners. There was a mismatch between these which led to some windows being misaligned, but it's not hugely noticeable and the overall look destracts from it. A few homemade details - Pitot/static made out of spare plastic, have since found a better way to do with paper card, but will save that for next time. Static wick dischargers made from flakes of an old plastic Christmas tree. Weathering done with HB/2B pencils. The shelf is getting a bit full! Next up I'm heading to widebody town with the Revell 777-300ER. Opting for the baby blue Air Canada livery and an aircraft I travelled on back in 2014. Suggestions and feedback welcome. Chris Tip if using bits of Christmas tree for static wicks... they fall off.
Working on a MAX in the new Icelandair blue/blue livery (it gets a knocking but I like it). Kit went together like a dream and in spite of a fee imperfections I'm happy, mostly humbrol spray cans but hand painted engines. Awaiting decals from the US to complete the livery. Particularly happy with the static wick dischargers made out of strands of an old fake Xmas tree.
Evening All, TF-FIU was rolled out of Air Livery at Norwich Airport today wearing a new Livery. I managed to catch it after a manic dash from work for the scheduled departure time of 17:10, only to discover it slipped to 19:20.... The New Livery is believed to be a new advertisement scheme, wearing the Hash Tag #mystopover It departed in a 30 knot wind, which makes it difficult for night pics! But here is my picture of the beauty departing! Icelandair Boeing 757-256 TF-FIU by Bradley at EGSH, on Flickr Cheers Bradley
