  1. DACO products would like to produce a 1/32nd Potez-Air-Fouga CM.170R Magister kit - ref.KDCC3201 Market enquiry Source: http://www.dacoproducts.com/KDCC3201.php V.P.
  2. This has been on the shelf of procrastination for a few years but having got another detail fret from Daco at Telford, it is now finished. An out of the box build with Authentic cockpit decals. It took several attempts to get a good finish from the Daco (Xtracolour) paint; thinned, brushed and polished with micromesh. And a few of its sister, which has been on here before but I suspect the photos are in some lost bucket

    CityBird MD-11

    Evening all, I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their's in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it. It's your typical short-run kit with a bit of flash here and there and no locating tabs etc, but it does have lovely surface detail and although it didn't have the quality of fit such as those from the latest Zvezda or Revell, it went together pretty well. I bought the Eastern Express KLM edition of the kit, but I really like the colourful and non-white CityBird scheme so bought some aftermarket decals from Daco which, as usual went on perfectly. Paints were from the Humbrol and Xtracolour enamel ranges, with a coat of Humbol Satin Cote to finish off. Tom
  4. Spanish Airforce F-104G / C.8 104 Esquadron Torrejon / Madrid 1/48 another GB, another try! The Mirage GB just finished, the Flanker started long time ago... ingredients: Decal detail: found an interesting photo of a Spanish C.8. it carries I guess Expal build MK-83 GP bombs probably BR-500s http://www.916-starfighter.de/Large/Stars/wS731.htm are the wing pylons provided by DACO correct for bomb loads? convering the white wings; top side only or bottom also in white?? Thanks, Werner
  5. Here is my entry for the GB, I have had this in the pile for a few years now and I think that I should take this opportunity to put it together. The yellow paint could be fun to do, I just hope that I can get a nice dense even colour. I may even be tempted to splash out on some Authentic Airlines windows for this one. The box and sprue shots are shown below. by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr by John L, on Flickr
  6. The timing of this GB isn’t great for me due to the seven(!) other models I need to finish for the IPMS Scottish Nationals on 28/29 April so if I’m going to have a chance of completing a 737 by 6 May I’ll need to get cracking and try to keep things as straightforward as possible. My first contribution will be the DACO Skyline 737-400 in the older version of the HLX New York Cab livery, “Fliegen zum Taxipreis” as the slogan used to say. I have a second project in mind, another -400 in Air UK Leisure livery, but at the moment that’s no more than a slim possibility. The HLX decals will mainly be from BOA sheet 14409 but I’m doubtful about the black checks which look slightly too big and BOA unhelpfully don’t make any provision for them to fit round the wing roots. I’ll probably cannibalise a Drawdecal 737-800 sheet I bought some time ago for a model which never got built. The livery decals will be supplemented by detail decals from the kit sheet and windows from Authentic Airliners. Hopefully it will be fun! Dave G
  7. This model is my contribution to the current Boeing 737 STGB. Hapag-Lloyd Express aka HLX was a German low-cost airline which was established in 2002 and operated until 2007 when it became part of TUIfly. The airline used the slogan "Fliegen zum Taxipreis" (Fly for the cost of a taxi fare) and their aircraft were painted in an eye-catching livery inspired by the Yellow Cabs in New York. The kit is by DACO. Yellow paint is Humbrol 99 buffed up and coated with Klear and the light grey on the engines and lower fuselage is Xtracolor X371. Contrary to what most decal manufacturers say these areas were NOT white, a mistake commonly made in relation to KLM as well! The wings and tailplanes are painted with Halfords Racking Grey. Livery decals are a mixture of BOA, Drawdecal and Brasil decals. Detail decals came from the kit sheet and windows and landing lights are by Authentic Airliners. The build thread is here for anyone who is interested. Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome Dave G
  8. Hi everybody! another very successful Group Build here at britmodeller ends today, many many entries, and GREAT results! here is my effort: Spanish Airforce F-104G / C.8 104 Escuadron, Torrejon / Madrid Hasegawa / Eduard Limited Edition 1/48 obligatory DACO improvement set (wings, pylons, gear doors, ) Decals: Series Españolas Expal/ Mk83 bombs Metal pitot WIP thread so here you are, was a GREAT GB, thanks a lot for all your kind comments and fantastic build threads!! drop by! with the current Ala 12 emblem - no le busques tres pies...... and 2 scans from the older days thanks and muchas gracias!! best regards, Werner
  9. Hello everybody!!! It's just few day till Christmas and I finally got my Daco 737-300 1:144!! Great!! It's my first model ever!!! I'm quite scared how it will look like when finished I'm going to make it Jet2 plane, reg G-CELK Jet2 Edinburgh. And why Jet2 and why LK? I've first flown aircraft in Jan 2012, Manchester to Prague on Jet2 737-300, but I don't remember the reg. And LK is as I currently live and work @Edinburgh and even work at the airport! Now to the model. It's pretty nice. I've found only one small dent on underneath the wing. No big deal. I will add more photos as building will continue DAY 1
  10. This was purchased at Telford last November, basic build was quite quick ( no real issues) and final painting + decals in June / July. Two thinned brush-painted coats of Daco WP blue for the fuselage, my own mix of Mr Hobby grey / white for the wings and decals for the leading edges and coroguard. Authentic Airliner decals for the cockpit but not for fuselage as their spacing is slightly out from the Daco window deacls. and alongside another from the WP fleet which will be "Crested Butte" - unfortunately the purple paint has gone very gritty, so will probably have to wait until after Telford this year to get another tin of paint The fuselage decals are VERY large - recommended to use Daco's own setting solution but only had Microsol/set so a few wrinkles!!
  11. Tanmodel as contractor, partner or challenger for DACO's (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234988158-132-potez-air-fouga-cm170r-magister-by-daco-products-cadsmarket-enquiry/) 1/32nd Potez-Air-Fouga CM-170R Magister kit project? That's the question. Source: http://www.greenmats.club/topic/1722-tanmodel-новый-проект-в-132/ The following message was published in the Tanmodel Facebook before being promptly erased. V.P.
  12. Nearly 5 (?) years after its first announcement the DACO 1/48th injected F-104 super update/detailing set (http://ultra.glo.be/daco/KDCC4802.html) dedicated to the Hasegawa's Starfighter kit seems in progress. The first test shots are now in the hands of Mister DACO, Danny Coremans. No release date yet but it will be probably available at Telford's SMW 2013.

  13. Hi I started this project before the very nice Airfix PR Mk.XIX had been announced (had I known I would have waited for that one instead ) The basis for this is the Academy Mk.XIVc kit with the Daco correction nose / spinner with radiators and gear legs The bowser wing with lower camera ports comes from the Heritage Aviation Resin PR.XIX kit. (Didn't have the airwaves conversion set). I used the Aires cockpit set for the Mk.XIVc with some major alterations to get in the PR.XIX specific stuff. Seatbelts comes from the HGW line of fabric seatbelts (this sure beats pe seatbelts by miles) 4-spoked wheels with block tread comes from Ultracast and the canopy comes from falcon. Swedish decals are from RBD Decals Painted with Xtracolor PRU Blue A WIP can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234918899-148-spitfire-prxix-swaf-s-31/ Well that's it, on to the pictures. And there's quite a few so bear with me. best regards Johan
  14. Finally finished my F-104G aircraft 26 + 90 from MFG 2, German Marine Hasegawa kit with Ultracast detail set in resin. Resin bang-seat. Cannot remember if the burner can were resin as well. I've used Daco's excellent decal set for this. Future on the canopy and modelmaster gloss and flat lacquer mixed. Thought a German Marineflieger would be rather weathered, considering its operational environments. Clean, no weapons save the internal gun. I scatched the chaff / flare launchers aft and the mounting plates they sit on. I also scratched a position light on the spine and under the belly, in front of the vertical fin. Easy kit - it went together with no problems. Kinks here and there entirely my own creations. I hope you like it!
  15. Hi All, Well you know what they say, you can never have too many spitfires... Just finished build number 2 for the year, which going at my slow work rate would be something of an achievement if i hadn't got most of the actual construction complete before Christmas I started this in the vain hope/anticipation that a major manufacturer would bring out a more accurate mk.XIV from the box but well..theres always next year... As the title says, this is the Academy Mk XIVc kit with the Daco improvement set grafted on to it. The kit itself is lovely to build, with great fit and finely rendered surface detail but with various dimensional 'issues' that result in a bit of a fat overall appearance with a badly shaped nose, spinner, props, radiators and rear fuselage that result in a bit of a portly approximation of what is IMHO the most brutishly beautiful mark of spitfire. As i'm sure many of you know the Daco set goes some way to improving the overall look, i have to agree but you be the judge... Its my first resin conversion of sorts and was a nice kit to use, the detail on the replacement nose section were soft to non existent in places so that had a rescribe and an attempt at doing the DZUS fasteners with a bit of sharpened Revell contacta glue tube and a pin. I added some Eduard etch parts for the panel and seatbelts to dress the pit up a bit, though the detail out of the kit is pretty nice. Also added the underside ID light in what I understand to be the correct position for a mk.XIV and also the little boat antenna underneath and main antenna on the spine from fine fishing line. Finished with Tamiya XF81/82/83 for the main camo colours and Xtracrylics matt (well satiny) varnish. Also had a go at hairspray chipping for the wing roots and some access panels and AK effects oil streaking for the underside, which I think both came out OK for a first go, the chipping was quite good fun too Decals are from one of the two mk.XIV/XVIII sheets recently released by Xtradecals and went on really well. They are great sheets with some lovely options but only issue i had is that the fin flash as supplied has the red part chamfered to fit to the front of the fin but the profile that comes with the decals and any contemporary pics I could find of a mk.XIV show a rectangular fin flash aligned with the back of the fin. Managed to fix this by borrowing the correct flash from an airfix mk.22 that I have. Anyway, enough waffle as my fat little fingers are struggling to get this all typed up before the end of my official lunch break... On with some pics and any C&CC greatly appreciated as ever, cheers for looking, Stu

    Skyline 737s

    I notice that the Skyline 737s are listed as Future Releases on Hannants - with airline decals this time. Any idea on timescales? http://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?adv=1&product_category_id=103&product_division_id=&manufacturer_id=8206&product_type_id=all_aircraft_kits&code=&scale_id=957&keyword_search=&setPerPage=100&sort=0&search_direction=asc&save_search_name=&save_search= Also, is the A300 the Airfix tooling? Thanks, Andrew
  17. Hi Starting a WIP for this though not a start to finish build as I've already started Started this to practice with a resin conversion set and because Airfix will surely release a super duper XIV like their XIX. I also have a low back XIV and another Daco set so its practice for that too Construction is mainly done. I made a right mess of cutting the kit nose off but its mostly tidy now Daco cannon covers used as this will be an 'E' rather than the kit 'C' Underside with new rads It will be finished as RN135, later scheme Whad'ya think? Cheers Chris PS- I'm also on the scrounge for a replacement windscreen for it, anybody got one or know where I can get one?
