  1. Afternoon all, This is a build from about 10 years ago - the Aircraft in Miniature vacuform Boeing 747-300. I had it out of the loft today as it needed some repairs and I thought I'd take some up to date pictures that hadn't been sabotaged by the Photobucket debacle. This is a vacuform model that comes as a basic shell - it was fully scribed and wheel bays scratch-built. The decals were from DrawDecal and paints were from Halfords. I had the KLM blue custom-mixed to match the crown on the tail. The kit provides white metal landing gear as well as resin intakes and exhau
  2. Right, my first WIP topic. Normally I'm only active in the Dutch ModelBrouwers forum, but I was persuaded to post a WIP here as well :). I usually build vintage civil aircraft (i.e. VC-10, Trident, 707, etc.) and I'm especially a fan of Soviet build civil aircraft, but from time to time I build more modern aircraft as well (as stated before, my goal is to have at least one model of every type of civil aircraft that has room for at least 12 passengers and has a closed cockpit). As for the liveries, I try to build them in Dutch colours (KLM, Martinair, Transavia, Air Holland, etc.).
  3. My latest finished project is the DC-10-30 in KLM colours. The kit, windows and windscreen decals are from Authentic Airliners. The decals are from the 26 and Revell (logo’s and registration). The kit is really great and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to build a DC-10-30. I made a detailed comparison between the Revell, Authentic Airliners, Welsh (fuselage) and Contrails (engine) offerings, which you can find on the Dutch page here. The AA kit is the winner (clearly). Although the kit isn’t terribly difficult to build, I did have some problems with the primer. By tryi
  4. The WIP is finished, so I decided to post the finished pictures here as well. I've wanted to make a DC-9 for a while now, but never came around to it until now. The DC-9 was the last civil aircraft that was designed exclussively by Douglas. I'm sure many civil aircraft enthousiast knows about the venerable DC-9, so no need to go into details here KLM had a total of 25 DC-9 aircrafts (both the -15 and the -30) and they served the airline from 1966 to 1989. I decided to build the DC-9-30 from Authentic Airliners. Many a great build has been made with Airfix and the
  5. I've wanted to make a DC-9 for a while now, but never came around to it. Now's finally the time! The DC-9 was the last civil aircraft that was designed exclussively by Douglas. I'm sure many civil aircraft enthousiast knows about the venerable DC-9, so no need to go into details here KLM had a total of 25 DC-9 aircrafts (both the -15 and the -30) and they served the airline from 1966 to 1989. From an old Dutch newspaper article: "KLM has chosen the twin engined DC-9 as its successor to the six Vickers Viscounts, that have been in use since the sixties. There wasn't much
  6. Here’s the latest addition to my fleet - Minicraft’s lovely DC-4 with F-DCAL decals for the KLM white top livery. The kit is more or less out of the box. As usual the white is Halfords and the natural metal is AK Interactive Xtreme Aluminium with some Rub n Buff for contrast. The KLM decals performed a lot better than the SAS ones which I moaned about in my DC-6 RFI a few weeks ago. There are even fewer photos of KLM DC-4s than SAS DC-6s but from what I’ve seen details, particularly antennae, seem to have varied from aircraft to aircraft and some machines had long eng
  7. Hi everyone, I'm posting my first inspection post today so I hope you enjoy! Today I'll present to you my 1st build, my KLM 777-200 ER in 1:144 scale! The kit was a Minicraft kit which was fairly easy to build. I know that there is the better option of the Revell/Zvezda 777-300 but I had built this over a year ago. Hopefully, you enjoy the model, as well as the youtube video I made of this build! If you would like to see the video the link is below. I plan on to post another airliner in the future, a British Airways 787-8. If you want a sneak peak you can watch the video already
  8. Hello everyone, This is to introduce my project for the Airliner III Group Build. I haven't built a 1/144 aircraft in 40 years and for some reason I was a little scared. I thought I would do an Airfix 1/72 De Havilland Dragon Rapide instead. Then, after a conversation with TrojanThunder I received a pleasant surprise in the mail; an Airfix 1/144 KLM DC 9. Thank you! I had said how much I liked this kit as a boy, and how it was now a bit hard to find at a sensible price. Well, I'm very grateful for it and now it is the subject of my build. If I have time I'll do the Dragon Ralide too, but
  9. Don't get your hopes up... this is more of a marker than anything as I'm pressing on with my Vignette GB first, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235004500-railcar/ This though is my submission Plan is it to be a relaxing time straight OOB (my comfort envelope is being seriously expanded with my vignette build. Theory then is that this is pretty much all I need... I know slightly zero about the DC-7 (and that's rounding up) but fancied something to go with this little twinkle in my eye... http://www.noorderlicht.net/projecten/schiphol-1928/ jump to image 7 for a c
  10. Apparently news of this has surfaced at Telford, although I haven't seen anything official yet. A re-box of the Zvezda kit with decals for KLM. Anyone seen any more? Cheers, Andrew
  11. This is the companion conversion to the Flyglobespan 736 which I posted a short time ago. Engines and winglets are modified from the kit parts and I shortened the main landing gear to improve the sit which I think is important with the long fuselage of the -900. It looks wrong, at least to me, with its tail in the air. The fuselage colour is Tamiya TS-76 Mica Silver oversprayed with TS-65 Pearl Clear. The blue is from an ancient tin of Humbrol 190 Blue Angels Blue. Like the 736 the decals are by Drawdecal. Thanks for looking (again!) and as always constructive criticism is welco
  12. KLM New Colors F-100's 1:144 Draw decal Derived from the F28 Fellowship, the Fokker 100 features a stretched fuselage, new wing and Rolls-Royce Tay engines. First flying in 1986, 283 were built before Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1997. A shorter version was developed by removing 4.7 metres from the fuselage, as the Fokker 70. Both versions have been operated by KLM Cityhopper, although the 100's have now all been retired from the fleet. The Revell kit is the only injection moulded model of the aircraft and is getting hard to find now. Fortunately Bradley on this forum kindly sent me an

  14. Hi All Sad news for you Fokker fans im afraid! The first KLM Cityhopper Fokker F70 has been withdrawn from use and stored at Norwich International Airport, EGSH. It is ex Air France PH-KZV, 1995 build. Sad to see the first one go, but they are not going to get any younger sadly!
