  1. Hi all This is my latest production and last of the backlog for RFI. Back in 1983 I had a flight in a DC3 at an airshow at Dyce, Aberdeen. The aircraft was G-AMPO of Air Atlantique in their, then new, Green Stripe livery. I loved the look of this livery and the memory of the flight has lasted. When I returned to modelling I was browsing through BM and found an example of G-AMHJ in the Air Atlantique blue stripe livery, That set me looking for a set of the green stripe decals by 26decals. I then looked for a suitable kit of the DC3, winning an old ESCI kit on eBay for a very good price. Nice to see that the image on the box was the aircraft I intended to build, albeit in an older scheme, and with a previous owner. The build was fairly straightforward with good fit of the kit. I did some alterations to make the kit as close to the plane I flew in as possible. I cut and glazed some extra cabin windows and scratched some extra seats in the cabin so that it was the 32 seater I was in. In hindsight that seemed a waste of time because you can't see in the cabin. The 26Decals were excellent and easy to work with although there were a coupled of errors; the emergency exit marks for the cabin roof say 'EXIT HERE IN EMERGENCY' when it should be 'CUT HERE IN EMERGENCY'. I have left these as they were. The other issue with the decals was the plane has three emergency exits through windows but there is only 2 on the decals sheet. I resolved this by painting a red square onto the decal film, seems to work ok. While the plane I flew in was basically out of the paint-shop I have chosen to present my interpretation as G-AMPO appeared in 1985, looking quite grubby and bearing recently added Air Luton titles. My presentation is just before the new titles were added. On to the pictures. Thanks for looking. Graeme
  2. Despite the fact that a former CF104 driver once told me the best use of an F5 was to saw the wings off, paint it yellow and use it to start real airplanes, I have always had a soft spot for the F5. Finished this a few months ago, but haven't had time to post until now. OOB pretty much with a few additions in the cockpit. Belcher Bits decals. This is a little jewel of a kit. Now if I can only finish it's two seater brother.......
  3. Good afternoon Today I 'd likte to present you an F5 C Esci that I finished some times ago ..this is a very nice model but very difficult to find .. I used the decals from the kit to represent a aircraft flown by the Skoshi Tigers Squadron in Vietnam .. I used a Wolfpack set to detail the cockpit and replace the seat by a Pavla one Patrice
