  1. Hawker Siddeley Trident 1/144 1C to 1E conversion Northeast Airlines (UK) RESTORATION Kit: Airfix Scale: 1/144 Decals: Classic Airlines (by Nick Webb) Windows: Authentic Airliners Work in progress thread can be found here Thanks for looking!
  2. Hawker Siddeley Trident 1/144 1C to 1E conversion Northeast Airlines (UK) RESTORATION This is the Airfix 1/144 kit which I am converting from the 1C to the 1E in the colours of Northeast Airlines that was based in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the 1970s. I'm by no means an expert but I believe the major changes are wingtip extensions a more conventional leading edge slat arrangement a larger wing root fairing (especially on the starboard side as it extends further back than port side) extended tailcone (If these are wrong or there are additional changes please feel free to let me know!) My dad actually started the conversion but its remained abandoned for a couple of years. I decided to start again making some major changes. The clear plastic cockpit window became opaque and could not be rescued meaning I lost the beautiful interior cockpit that had been created. I decided to fill this along with all the windows and the undercarriage doors. since original paintwork has been stripped the plastic now looks worn out and lacking the original detail. I also cut a chunk out the fuselage to let me get into the model to make a gap for a stand. wingtip extensions added by adding flat plastic to the upper and lower portions of the wing and blending it into the existing wing. Originally these extensions were just plain milliput but were extremely fragile. I will have to look and measure the flap arrangement to see if they are the same length and size. You can see the portion of the fuselage that was removed in this picture. This side of the aircraft has the shorter fairing above the wing, this whole area is missing for the 1C and looks totally smooth. On the part above the tail engines jet exhaust (the tailcone??) needs to be extended. again made out of milliput it was too fragile and came off when i stripped the original paintjob. I've made a hole and using a piece of plastic sprew to build the tailcone from inside the model so it can't just snap off. eventually i've built around the sprew and made the shape. Still needs a bit of work to get the exact angle. This is the starboard side fairing, perhaps someone can tell me why this is significantly longer on this side and what purpose it serves? I'm thinking about using authentic airliners 3-D windows, they don't have them for this aircraft but i wonder if anyone can recommend which windows could be used instead??? would the windows differ much from narrow bodied airliners of the same era?? The cockpit windows I'm going to make myself from spares
