  1. A blast from the past. The very rare Plasticart Caravelle in approx. 1/100. Probably first released in the early 1960s,it is very simplistic in detail. But as I have a soft spot for those Plasticart kits,I have almost all their airliners in my collection,I had to add this as well. As with all my Plasticart builds,I try to stick as close as possible to the kit design and usually do not change much or anything at all to keep their classic character. The only thing I added are the engine exhausts,because the plastic around there was rather brittle and resulted in not really round outlets. The rest is as it comes from the box,including the decals. What always amazes me with those kits,is the fact that almost all decals are still in good and usable condition. I had only one kit so far where the decals had been beyond salvation. The fit is ok for its age with surprisingly little use of putty required. Thanks for looking Alex
  2. Plasticart's interpretation,thats all I can call it, of the famous DC-8 was by far the worst kit I had/build so far from that manufacturer. Totally wrong noseshape,cabin windows much lower on one side of the fuselage than at the other,twisted parts...and so on,this one gave me more than once nightmares.It's on par qualitywise with Heller's DC-8 kit that I built some time ago. More than a year in the making,I finally got it finished. Most of the work went into the correction of the nose,to get it as accurate as possible.I reshaped the whole cockpit area,flattened and widened the "witch-nose",sanded it back as it was also too long and rescribed the air-intakes.. I rescribed also some panel-lines and flaps on the wings The rest of the look was created with decals. As the model looked very poor on its landing gear,I decided to make an inflight model,somehow like one of those from travel agencies. The display stand was obtained from a Revell 747 Panagra was a joint venture between Pan American World Airways and Grace Shipping company and was formed in 1929 and operated throughout South America until it merged with Braniff International in 1967. I found the livery quite appealing so I ordered this decal set from F-DCAL. It matched on the kit with only little adjustments. Hope you like it, Cheers
