Airbus A319 I completed a month ago. Not perfect, but getting better. I'm currently building the same kit again in a personalised livery (will post on here when done, if it succeeds) Goes together relatively easily. On my second time round i'll be paying more attention to the join lines on the engines. If you go for the CM56 option, i've noticed the starboard engine on both kits didn't fit together. The IVAE engines (pictured) seem to fit consistently. Chris
This is the 1/144 Zvezda Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner kit. In general the kit is easy and won't trouble even a beginner. Only exception the fan blades which are very fragile and require extra attention. Since the decals provided by zvezda are practically useless I decided to paint the model with the colours of Ethiopian Airlines by making my own decals. Specifically I tried to model the first aircraft of the type that was delivered to Ethiopian which is also the first aircraft of the type delivered in the Africa continent. The said aircraft is the ET-AOQ (Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner - cn 34745 / LN 49) which was delivered to Ethiopian on 17th August 2012. Shortly after the delivery, Ethiopian added some anniversary decals which don't exist on the rest of its 787 fleet. Those were the description of the type "Boeing 787" and the words "Africa First" which indicate the 1st aircraft of the type for Africa. The cabin and cockpit windows, doors and all stencils are from the excellent "Boeing Colours" decal sheet of DACO including the photo-etched pitots and AOA sensors which are included with the sheet. All the rest are designed and printed on decal paper by me at home using a cheap EPSON inkjet printer. Hope you enjoy it. George
