  1. The LACI catalogue is downloadable here: https://laci-ltd.uk/en/content/19-catalogue-2024 V.P.
  2. Here is my latest finished model. I have built the well known Zvezda kit using the decals by F-DCAL. Additionally I acquired the LACI engine (3D-printed) and so I had to create a maintenance scene. Something must be wrong with the thrust reverser system and the flight engineer and a mechanic are taking care of this problem. Globus Airlines was formed 2008 by the S7 Airlines but ceased operations in 2019 again. For the maintenace platform I used Preiser figures and Evergreen profiles. Thanks for watching!
  3. Here is my latest update of an Airfix golden oldie - the Boeing 737 finished as G-BMEC of Air Europe while operating for British Airtours in 1983. Between 1983 and 1986 Air Europe and British Airways had a “swap lease” arrangement which gave BA access to Air Europe aircraft particularly in the winter months when their own aircraft were undergoing scheduled maintenance. It benefitted Air Europe by keeping their aircraft in the air when there was less demand for holiday charter flights. Updating the old Airfix kit to Advanced standards was good fun. Here is a quick run down on what I did: 1. Cockpit roof and windscreen replaced with spare part from Zvezda 737-700 (much easier to fit than the Daco part). 2. Zvezda kit used as pattern to reshape the Airfix nose. 3. Wheel wells opened up and main well fitted with a “roof” cloned from a Daco kit using Oyumaru and Milliput. 4. Lowest hinge on fin/rudder filled. 5. Daco p/e used for pitots and other small details. 6. Engines replaced with LACI JT8D-15s. These are beautiful and LACI have really nailed the appearance of the Advanced engines, at least to my eyes. You also get the choice of open or closed thrust reversers. Fit to the Airfix wings is adequate rather than good but the end result is way better than I could have achieved by modifying the kit parts. Paint is Halfords Appliance Gloss White and Racking Grey with metallics from Tamiya and AK Interactive. Decals are a mix of Classic Airlines and Flightpath with detail decals from the spares box and an Authentic Airliners windscreen. Coroguard is also by Flightpath. Thanks for looking and constructive criticism is always welcome. I haven’t decided on my next Airfix update but a Trident and an A300 do their best to catch my eye any time I’m in the loft.
