  1. Hello all, Just finished this latest build. the Minicraft MD-80 kit with Swiftair Real Madrid EC-JQV decals by TwoSix. EC-JQV was painted up in the Real Madrid livery in 2007 to carry the football team and VIP's around until 2009 when they stopped using the plane for political reasons. EC-JQV was scrapped in 2012 but it lives on in 1/144 scale! For a Minicraft build this wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, certainly better than the 737-400 kit, but that's not to say it's a doddle, still needed a fair bit of filler for the fuselage join, but the wings weren't actually too bad considering it's the fiddly interlocking system. I did a few 'dry' fits to find the 'spot' where it would lock in before putting glue on. The last few dry fits worked perfect so having nailed that, I put the glue on and then it didn't lock in as it just did the past few attempts but I got it in soon after. The stabilzers and engines went on very well, the wheel doors were the most fiddly things of all! Instructions could have been a little bit clearer but wasn't that bad. The decals are excellent and well recommended, they are designed for the Minicraft kit, the blue around the nose was a tad fiddly and required a little bit of blue paint to fill in a gap around the cockpit window as it doesn't quite fit, but that was no problem. I hope you like it and thanks for looking! James.
  2. Eastern Express has just released a 1/144th McDonnel Douglas MD-87 kit - ref. 144110 Source: https://hobbyterra.com/product/civil-airliner-md-87-iberia-airlines-eastern-express-144110.html V.P.
  3. My recently finished Minicraft 1:144 MD-80 in the old Hawaiian scheme. The kit decals are the wrong colour but I quite like the purple so not fussed. The kit goes together easy enough but has been on and off the bench for over 2 years now. I just kept putting it aside. Having recently deciding to finish a few of my KUTA builds this is the first. There are many others to come.

  4. Hello Everyone Right another question session!!!! I must be driving people mad... lol.... So moving quickly on from the 707 i have deided i want to do a series of MD-80s. Id like to do the following. Alitalia MD-82 http://img.planespotters.net/photo/299000/original/I-DATI-Alitalia-McDonnell-Douglas-MD-82_PlanespottersNet_299842.jpg Airtours MD-83 http://www.flickr.com/photos/jordi757/3480792833/ Air Liberte MD-83 http://www.al-airliners.be/k-o/liberte/ijmd-83-2.jpg SAS MD-87 http://www.freefoto.com/images/2050/38/2050_38_19---SAS-McDonnell-Douglas-MD-87-SE-DIF_web.jpg As with many other Aircraft Sub types i have no idea at all how to tell them apart or what kits there are of them. So i want to do all of these in 1/144. I know that Mincraft has released an MD-80, thats all it says on the box. So how do i tell what version of MD-80 is in the box. Also waht modifications on the MD-80 kit will i need to do? So i am pretty much asking what vrsion and how do i do it? Thanks Bradley.
