This model is in my collection for a very long time. I built it somewhere back in 1991/1993,not exactly sure what year in Lufthansa livery using the kits decals with punched through windows as per instructions. All was handpainted and of course looked less than perfect,but I had great fun back then in building this Airbus. Now a good 25+ years later this Airbus was still sitting in my vitrine,looking very worn out and dirty. I thought for sometime to keep it that way as a reminder of my childhood modelling skills,or throw it away in order to make some space for newer models but I couldn't get over it. So I decided to redo the model and give it some new life. Carefully remove all the parts,strip off the old paint with Revell's paint remover....a tedious task...but in the end the model was clean enough to start repair and enhancement work. All cracks and seams were refilled and sanded,the wing leading edges got their little fences,as Airfix does not provide them,they were made out of plasticcard. The landing gear was replaced by a new complete set that I had in my spares box. The decals are from Flight Path,pretty old but still in perfect condition. The windows come from the Revell A330 kit as well as some details and the coroguard panels are from DACO. Paints are from Revell (enamels) and Tamyia (acrylics) as I had to patch up some places around the nose and the Tamyia paints had been a perfect match. Aerocondor Colombia was the first Airbus operator in latin america and received their first A300 in 1977. It was planned to aquire a 2. A300 but due to some financial issues which lead to bankruptcy,only the "Ciudad de Barranquilla" flew in the colourful scheme of Aerocondor. Here she is now in resplended shape. Thats what she looked like before.Sorry for the picture quality but I took them on a short notice...
