  1. I started this one at Christmas thinking it would be a nice quick build. Few parts, rattle can of white paint, a bit of red at the front end...... Well it has taken me until now to get it done! I always thought the Dreamliner was a bit on the ugly side, but I have to say that building this model has changed my mind. It has lovely flowing lines and had gone from ugly duckling to beautiful swan. Maybe it has something to do with them now appearing in proper airline liveries rather than prototype colours. The kit is the Revell boxing of the Zvezda mouldings, and is beautifully done. The fan blades in the engines feature individual blades, cleverly moulded as two rings of blades that fit together. The cockpit glazing was a slightly oversize fit and required sanding to blend it in. I polished it back to clarity with micromesh cloths as I prefer clear glazing to window decals. Decals are from Lima November and very nicely done. I chose EI-LNB (Irish reg. as these aircraft are leased and not on the Norwegian register) 'Thor Heyerdal' as my Grandmother was at school with him! All in all an enjoyable build, not as quick as I thought it would be, but it is a big aeroplane especially when seen next to a 737. Thanks for looking John
  2. This summer I took the family for a holiday in Stavanger, Norway, flying from Manchester with Norwegian. The aircraft waiting at the gate was LN-NOM 'Greta Garbo' so when Ruben of Lima November decals announced a sheet for this very aircraft I just had to get one. The kit is the Revell 737-800 with my own mods to extend the winglets and fix the undersides of the engines to get the correct shape. This particular aitcraft carries a satellite receiver on top of the fuelsege in front of the fin, and this was scratchbuilt from plasticard. After that it's an easy enough build. The Lima November decals are superb, fitting very nicely and with good colour density. All are silk screen printed except for the 'Greta Garbo' on the tail which is laser printed. The instructions are very good, even containing photos of the real aircraft including a good close shot of the satellite instalation. So, I introduce you to Miss Garbo.... And with another of my Norwegian fleet, "Edvard Grieg" Thanks for looking, John
