  1. Here is my finished Boeing 777-236(ER) which has been converted using the Revell B777-300(ER) kit. I opted for the British Airways livery and G-VIIB as it was a regular site for me when I used to work at LGW. I have converted this kit, and a full WIP can be found by following the link which is below. This was my first attempt at a conversion and when I had made the cuts and ended up with 3 pieces of fuselage I found it hard to imagine an end result. I followed some excellent advice given to me and persevered with it. The Revell kit is a nice build and goes together really well. The engines are the GE90-94s from BraZ as are the wingtips. The decals are from RichW and they have gone on brilliantly as well as the AA windows. The paints used were Revell 04 White Gloss for the upper fuselage (I opted for this due to an issue with spraying), Halfords Fiat Capri Blue for the lower fuselage and nacelles, Halfords Racking Grey for the wings and Revell 374 for the coroguard. The metals and greys are mix of Revell Aqua colours. This was my first time really masking off a demarcation line, although in principal it seems easy enough, but I’m too set on wanting it perfect. I used Tamiya flex tape for the tapered ends and thicker Tamiya tape for the straight sections. I think it has turned out ok. I studied several photos of BA’s 777 wings and I found they were all particularly dirty, especially the trailing ends and had an unusual light grey contamination on the upper surfaces. I have tried to replicate this effect on this model. The decals were easy to work with, with each one requiring cutting individually. The authentic airlines decals help to bring it to life. I have enjoyed this build, and it has encouraged me to do more conversions. In fact I am planning a B737-700 and B777-200(ER) in United and BA Landor respectively this year. Thank you for looking and as always any comments and feedback are greatly appreciated. Regards, Alistair
  2. I have always wanted to build a British Airways B777-200 model, but didn’t want to pay nearly £50 for a kit that I have heard has several issues with it. I thought I would take the plunge and leap in to my first attempt at a conversion. I have always been very apprehensive about the thought of picking up a saw and making cuts to the already pristine fuselage sections, so it played with my anxiety a bit. I purchased the Revell 777-300ER kit, my razor saw and sat there saying to myself, “I can do this”. I’d been given a few tips about how to convert the 777-300ER kit down to a -200. With the 777 having the same circumference fuselage all the way around, this helped with making the reassembly relatively straight forward enough. Here are the key points to note when converting the -300ER kit; -200F and 200LR = shorten the fuselage as per the guide, remove the tail skid and part off of the MLG. The larger GE90 engines supplied in the kit are used on both these variants. -200ER = shorten the fuselage as per the guide, remove the tail skid and part off of the MLG. The engines are either the smaller versions of the GE90 or RR Trent 800s which can be purchased from BraZ. You also need to remove the raked wing tips, and replace them with the BraZ ones. I have opted to build a B777-200ER which will be in the British Airways livery G-VIIB with the aftermarket GE94 engines. I will cover each stage of the process as I work through it and hopefully I cover everything. Regards, Alistair
  3. Hello, I wanted to ask, I am modelling G-VIIB a British Airways 777-200ER. Does it have coroguard sections top and bottom, and does this apply to the horizontal stabilisers as well, as I can’t seem to get good photos of the wings or a top down/plan view from my online photo hunting. I know the 777-300ER doesn’t have the coroguard sections, but wanted to make sure before I start painting the wings. Regards, Alistair
  4. Ok this will be my second entry into the GB. While waiting to secure a new kit for my 1st build the Soyuz 733, why not get cracking on this one. The Minicraft model is quite large compared to some smaller airliners I have been working on...I'm almost at the limit of my photo studio! image by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } image by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } Draw Decal will be providing the markings... image by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } This is the Pratt and Whitney boxing of this kit...although it took a little time to figure that out as the kit was released separately with each of the 3 engine suppliers. The instructions lead one to believe these are Roll Royce units. image by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } image by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr\ } Thanks for looking I switched from my Nikon to iPhone for those last shots...eeesh they look gloomy! More pics to follow. Ryan
  5. This is the hasegawa kit. Liveries Unlimited Decals.

  6. Hello, I am new to the forums and relatively new to model kit building. Just finished this and would appreciate any tips/criticisms you may have! Thanks TBM
