I present my Zvezda Boeing 787-9 in Norwegian’s UNICEF livery G-CKLZ. I chose this livery as it’s a great show of support for the excellent work that UNICEF carry out all over the World and it’s great to see Norwegian, like many other airlines, supporting this great cause. The kit was OOB with aftermarket decals from Ascensio and the windows and cockpit decals from Authentic Airlines. The Satcom antenna comes as standard with this kit. It was straight forward to assemble with minimal filling required. The paints used were Halfords Appliance white, brush painted Humbrol acrylic Scarlett 60 for the red section. I wish I had sprayed the red section now though instead of brush painting it. I have a special livery Vietjet A321 to do in the future and will likely spray the red on that I think. The metals were various Revell Aqua colours. The decals are laser printed with additional white screen printed decals where they are required. They are easy to use and work well with Microset/Microsol. The only thing I did differently was paint the lower fuselage billboard red, as the decal supplied doesn’t match the actual aircraft livery after studying photos of the underside. I made the ice indicators myself for the wings using left over 777 decals and cut it to reflect the shape seen on the Norwegian 787, as it’s not common on all 787s that I’ve seen. As always an excellent product from Authentic Airlines, they really do bring a model to life. My next project to hit here in the future is likely to be my A321N in the Hawaiian Airlines livery. As always thank you for looking and any constructive feedback and comments are very much welcomed. Regards, Alistair
I present my Zvezda Boeing 787-9 in the new rebranded livery of Air Canada. The build was OOB with the decals provided by Greg at DrawDecal. Like the rest of my Zvezda builds they go together very well... I am quite embarrassed and disappointed with this build as the quality is poor . I built this one a while ago but I wish I had waited to build it once I had learnt some of the skills and techniques I know now, but at the same time I love the scheme and wanted to share it with you. Maybe in the future I might rebuild it using AA decals. I do really like the new Air Canada scheme, I feel it looks very elegant and love the raccoon type cockpit design. The paints I used were Halfords Appliance White for the fuselage and wings, and Humbrol Gloss Black for the lower fuselage and engine nacelles. As always thank you for looking and constructive feedback and comments are always welcomed. I am keen to build another 787-9 in the future, just need to decide on a livery for it. Regards, Alistair
After a break from Sci-Fi and prehistoric builds, I have returned to my preferred subject of Civil Aircraft and have 3 kits in 1/144 scale almost off the end of a 3 month production line in my workshop. All 3 kits are in the final stages of decals, paint and build here. Kits used - Revell Dreamliner 787-8 for the BA livery kit Zvezda Dreamliner 787-9 for the Virgin livery kit Eastern Express MD-11 in American Airliners livery An array of decals have been used from Draw Decals, F-Decal, Nazca and good old 26Decals. The Eastern Express MD-11 kit was a bitch - different width fuselages, poor fitting wing roots, rear bulkhead a different width the forward fuselage - the list is endless. Any - I like how it is turning out despite the many hours of filling Despite quite a bit of research on the correct shade of grey to use on the Virgin 787-9, I followed the advice of one of my friends who is a Virgin engineer at LHR who kindly gave me some touch up fuselage paint - unfortunately despite the colour being 100% correct - it seems that difference between 1/1 scale and 1/144 scales don't work as I am sure the real things that fly past my front door in Iver everyday loo quite a bit lighter in shade - perhaps a trick of the light …. Bye - John
