  1. Today I received the brand new Eastern Express Kit of the Boeing 747SP Taking a look at the sprues,all looks very nice and neat with fine engraved panellines. Detail is also quite high,it even features a full cockpit,although not much will be seen through the small windows. The windos are designed as section with part of the roof,so if the fit is well,I might consider not glueing that part on to offer a better look inside the cockpit. We will see if thats going to work. As it is the case with the new Eastern Express kits of late,detail,accuracy is very good and
  2. Over lockdown I've been reading a lot of history books and stumbled across the story of Adrian Warburton via James Holland's excellent Fortress Malta. Without giving too much away to those who don't know, Warburton was a photo reconnaissance pilot based predominantly on Malta during WWII. To find out more you need to read up on him. He has a Wiki page, but that doesn't do the story justice. I've got an ancient Easter Express kit that I'm going to build in the re-badged French scheme that Warburton flew early on in his career. Sadly the aircraft didn't last long and pict

  5. Another bunch of Airbuses. Eastern Express offers the smallest member of the A320 family in 1/144. Probably ripped off and altered from Revell's A319,its an ok kit. The fit is a bit iffy in places but its not as bad as their earlier Boeing 737-300 - / 400 / -500 releases. As I had the British Airways decals left over from my A319,which I built in Gambia Bird livery,I could use these decals to create one of only two A318s Britsh Airways had in its fleet. They had an all business class seating and were used on the London City - New York flights,that had been offer
  6. Eastern Express released their nice TriStar kit in many different liveries and versions. Among those is also the Orbital ATK Stargazer. To my knowledge,this TriStar is the last flying example. It was originally delivered to Eastern Airlines in 1974. Painted with Revell 04 white,Revell 374 grey for the wings and Testors silver for the metallic parts. Some light weathering was added on the wings and tail.AA cockpit window,some details from the NAZCA detail set.The rest is from the kit provided decals. The kit is the known airliner kit,the

  10. Greetings! Just purchased a factory sealed shrink wrap kit from Eastern Express (No. 72257) of the Supermarine S-6B racer and was surprised to discover the decals missing! I have requested a replacement from Eastern Express, but so far no response. Any suggestions on how to obtain decals for this kit???? Many Thanks, Bill
  11. This is not my best model by far, but probably the most desired one, battle born with lots of setbacks. Definitely not the tidiest one, but I still like it! I wanted to build MD-90 so bad. Decals took almost 60 days to arrive (but they were a pleasure to work with and many thanks to Greg Drawbaugh for helping me out with my order). The correct grey colour took about a week of waiting and after that painting went horribly wrong. I painted 4 thin coats and it was worse and worse. I don't know what exactly went wrong since I was using spray can paint that time, painting outside, but I had
  12. Some people call this airplane ugly, but I think she is sleek and cute. Surprisingly it is one of the better fitting Eastern Express kits but still very stressful to build. At some point I thought WIP would have been nice because there were some unexpected plot twists. I have gone a long way choosing her livery, but eventually it came down to airBaltic which I have flown on and Luxair. I've already built an AirBaltic 757 so I went with the Luxair. Eventually I've ordered Luxair decals along with a technical sheet from Nazca early May and gave up six weeks later. I think the internation

  15. Would anyone have knowledge of an Eastern Express/Micro Mir 1/144 scale MD-11 with Pratt & Whitney engines included in the kit? All the kits I can find that are available have GE engines (except the Authentic Airliners kits...I am specifically looking for the EE kit). Has anyone seen one? Were they ever made? Know of availability? Know of aftermarket P&W engines for this kit?

  17. So... on Tuesday, whilst waiting for the Bronco tracks for the Crusader to arrive, I decided to take a peek at this... Instructions.. a little basic The underlying theme in this kit is flash and slightly misaligned moulds although to be honest there is a lot of detail to be added. I assume this is a short run kit so one can forgive it's shortcomings. Sprues are already depleted as the kit has been mostly assembled already. Miniature link and length tracks need lots of cleanup. And after 2 days.. Base coat of Olive Green (XF-
  18. Good evening so finally i decided to post a progress report of my MD11. There's a lot to tell, but lets start first with some facts. The Kit is an Eastern Express, ordered from 26decals. So i got the kit with some decals, i did not want to use on this one, instead i will go with Liveries unlimited FEDEX stuff. Some big decisions had to be made in advance, like the RCI windshield. I am not advertising my own products, since i stopped producing them, but obviously the reason why i used it here is the reason why i created this stuff, i think it is better than the wi

  20. Here's my third completed build from the excellent Flying Boats and Floatplanes II group build (if you haven't looked you should check it out - there are some excellent builds there) - this is the Eastern Express 1/144 Beriev Be-200 Altair. Build thread is here. Apologies for duplicated photos - can't seem to stop it! thanks for looking Julian
  21. As I'm only involved in the Lockheed Group Build over the next two months, I thought that I would try to build my MD-11 alongside the Tristar. It will certainly be finished as one of those in the KLM fleet that I've flown on - probably PH-KCD "Florence Nightingale" but perhaps PH-KCE "Audrey Hepburn" The kit comes with decals for the later (narrow cheatline) livery but I've also got the 26Decals for the delivery scheme with the wide blue & white cheatline - which would be much easier to mask / paint. So far the four sections of the fuselage have been assembled:

  24. Another Swiss airline for my collection. This is a new kit by Eastern Express and as such its of the same good quality as all their newer airliner kits. Still short run and nothing for beginners though but nicely molded parts with fine engraved panellines. Nicely detailed but they overdid it again esp. for a kit in that small size.Some parts are so small,they are prone to get lost by simply looking at them... The landing gear has lots of very small parts,here I wish EE would mold the gear legs in one single part rather than 4 ! just for the leg.... Noneth
  25. In case anyone is interested Ray Charles currently has EE DC-10s at £35 plus postage. He's offering a tempting range of decals including Iberia, Sabena and Monarch. It may also be worth noting that Ray is intending to stop production of laser decals at the end of this year. Dave G (PS I have no connection with Ray except as a customer)
