  1. Here is the Zvezda Tu-154M finished as LZ-BTX of Balkan Bulgarian Airlines circa 1994. The build is more or less OOB although I used BraZ engine fans in place of the unlovely kit items. Paint is Halfords Appliance Gloss White and Mr Hobby H338 grey with Humbrol and Tamiya metallics. Decals are by Two Six and are up to Ray's usual standards apart from a couple of minor points. The green sections of the two small forward doors on the right need to be shortened by just over 1mm otherwise the doors will be too tall and affect the placement of the main “Balkan” title. If you have filled the door outlines it’s easy to get caught out as I was. Also a bit of patching material would have been nice since the red and green stripes don’t meet under the belly and the green in particular proved difficult to match with paint. Windows are from Authentic Airliner Decals and I added a sensible modicum of stencils from the spares box. The obligatory soot staining was done with artist’s pastels. Thanks for looking and constructive criticism is always welcome Dave G
  2. I don't normally buy Eastern Express kits but I happened to notice that a second-hand dealer has an Eastern Express Tu-154 for sale. From the box art (never a reliable guide with Eastern Express) it looks like a Tu-154B which would definitely be of interest but I can't find any other information about the kit. It doesn't even feature on Scalemates. Does anyone know anything about it? In particular is it the old OKB plastic? Dave G
  3. Tupolev Tu-154 (NATO reporting name: Careless) Pics taken at The Ukraine State Aviation Museum Zhulyany, Kiev. Pics thanks to Dave Haskell.
  4. Hi guys, I've bitten the bullet as I'm pretty confident I'm going to finish my Yak-6M for the other GB so I'm getting on board with this one too. I have a few Tu-154's up in the loft and I've been itching to build one for some time, so this is the perfect excuse. Will be finished using 26Decals as Balkan Airlines, LZ-BTW.
  5. Well I got myself the excellent Zvezda TU-154, the kit is a dream. It fitted together very nicely, minimal filler and I think very good surface detail. I painstakingly airbrushed the Aeroflot silver and blue colour scheme, and it looked quite nice (even if the blue wasnt quite right!). Then I came to decal it. The decals are very poor. Poor standard of printing and then when applied they wouldn't settle down so tried a bit of Micro Set and then disaster. They just wrinkled horribly, I had left it overnight and the state in the morning was bad. I had to rub down the cheat lines and the flag on the tail was wrecked. I have now rubbed down and dont know where to go from here. I did ponder on doing some heavy weathering and go for a faded look but not sure if it would work on the tail. Or trying to paint in the red white and blue but would not be able to replicate the highlights on the flag. I really dont want to strip it and start again. I have their A320 in the stash but am worried those decals may be poor as well, any ideas? The tail areas: I have already repainted the orange cheat line, but can fade it if necessary
  6. We looked after my parents house the other night and we found some old photo albums. These from the flight to and from Bulgaria brought back some memories, I was 13 at the time. We went when it was World Cup USA 94. As England weren't there we supported Bulgaria who made the semis (I think). The whole place was buzzing, especially when they beat Germany TU-154 at Manchester Airport. This aircraft was actually the flight to Varna, we went on a similar 154 to Bourgas A jump now to the return flight to Manchester. Shots taken at Bourgas airport Boarding the plane for the flight home, my dad took some useful pictures even though I didn't know at the time. I've since got the Welsh 1/144 TU-154 in this livery Flying home East coast UK, 99% sure this is north of Hull....... .......As I swear this is the Hull estuary M57 and Denton, pre M60 ring road M63 (which became the M60 Stockport Pyramid and M63 Stockport again About to touch down Manchester Airport shots Cheers Chris
