  1. Hello all, Can't remember when I started this, a few months ago but I've finally finished it! A couple of times I nearly threw it away!! It's the Revell A330 with the old Airbus house markings boxing. I'm not sure what the Aer Lingus etc boxing ones are like, but this one was really ropy so I hope the later ones are improved! That or it may be the fact it was a bad apple from the start and throughout, both problems with the kit and problems I done, it was badly jinxed! 1. I put the nose gear the wrong way round, didn't notice until near the end when I put the wheels on, so it's not in the right place but too late to fix it! 2. The landing wheel detailing bit's were useless, and the axles snapped so had to glue the wheels to the gears! 3. The front nose gear snapped in half, had to glue that back together which wasn't easy! 4. I totally stuffed up painting the engine cowlings white, it's come out rather lumpy 5. I didn't realise the rear light blue decal goes through the horizontal stabilizers, I only noticed after I already glued them in!! So had to cut the decal to fit around the stabilizers with some help! 6. The wing fit left a noticeable gap, filled it with krystal clear so I could paint over it, then I couldn't remember what paint I used for the wing, so I left it, I can't be bothered to fix it 7. The extra decals I used for the stenciling wasn't easy, some of the numbers in the instructions didn't match the decal sheet, or some numbers were missing leaving you to work it out! 8. A fair amount of filling was required, even I managed to stuff some of it up! 9. Small decal bit's ended up in the water monster, so didn't bother with those in the end 10. I used a dark grey on the top of the wing, as I say can't remember what colour, but I'm not sure it's right to be honest?? BUT here it is, finished, and to me look's like an A330. I used Liveries Unlimited 'Air Inter' decal sheet, along with the Thai Airway's sheet from Revell's other A330 kit for the stenciling. Thanks for looking! C&C is welcome, but yes I do know it's not accurate James.
  2. Airbus A330-200 Gulf Air Reg A9C-KA - New Livery Concept! Kit - Revell Thai A330-300 1/144 scale Engines - Braz 2 x RR Trent 700 Decals - F-DCAL 787 Dreamliner Gulf Air This model started life a rather shabby Air Mauritius and this was the original conversion from the -300 to the -200. Engines were different again from the original kit. thanks for looking!
  3. This was the first model i ever built (as an adult) about 3 years ago. The kit was the Revell Thai a330-300 kit and although my first model I wanted to do something different and convert it to the shorter 200. The fuselage pieces were cut out and the tail was removed (replaced with the slightly larger braz tail for the 200. Once I had decided on Air Mauritius I purchased the GE engines from Hannants (I still have the PW ones) I made a decent job of the modelling but after a while I realized that the paint job sucks - although initially it looked acceptable. The decals were my own and now look tired and faded. I also committed a faux pas and littered it with every transfer available (i probs only use 25% of the transfers now including the doors) I also did an awful job of the windows..... using clear glue to form a transparent window (what was I thinking). Time to restore and save this I reckon. paintwork is awful now. those windows will need filled You can make out the fuselage join from where its been shortened and put back together. I also wouldn't fancy the pilots to see much out the cockpit window the other fuselage join is visible and i also lost part of the undercarriage doors so theyll need scratch built from reference shots. also made a crude attempt to put this on a display stand - that'll need tidied up Stage 1 - remove paint work Im using brasso to thin the paint, its a bit time consuming but dont want to weaken the plastic below using paint stripper. Getting there anyway. Cockpit glass removed and some windows. There is glue residue in most of the windows that will take some effort to remove.

    Revell to Reissue A330-300

    http://www.plastik-modellbau.org/blog/herbstneuheiten-von-revell-septemberoktober-2013/2013/#more-23277 Thanks to modelldoc for posting this link in the rumourmonger section. Regards, Andrew Edit: it says it's a reissue of the old Aer Lingus boxing, which had GE engines, but presumably it will have the PW engine sprue too - as far as I can tell Thai have only had PW and RR engines on their 330s?
  5. Hello everyone Well, first of all i would like to claim myself a beginner. This is my second kit after a pause of 12 or so years (i remember almost nothing from those times except some details have to be painted before glueing). I mean i'm still learning. This is actually the first time i used putty, extensive sanding and a bit of weathering. Here i should stop whining. Basically it is built out of the box except for that it's a conversion of the A340 bloody 'Wiener Philarmoniker' (for some reason noone chooses to build SAS scheme). The Trents are from the Braz models. This was also the first time i worked with resin hence one of my major mistakes - the engine inlets of the trents are quite decently tilted, while mine are upright. The choice of the gear up attitude was obvious as i have to hang the models to the ceiling. I was too scared to try making flaps down, besides main gear bogies are again decently tilted in flight. Oh, and another major mistake is a tricky fuselage color, too yellowish to me. Everything was spray-painted. The decal were from Revell plus a little help from the Draw decals. The weathering was done according to the a.net images which show the A330 SAS fleet surprisingly dirty. Here we go The next oncoming is a baby bus a Revell's A319 with Bearbus Germanwings scheme (i'm considering not to post work in progress as there are dozens already here) Thanks, Steve
