  1. Hello folks, anyone planning decals for the new Qantas retro scheme? Looks great. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Qantas/Boeing-737-838/2733726/L/ Looking at you Ray... (please) Cheers, Andrew
  2. All, Every now and again I go back to the DK Decals main website and check (in hope) that new decals are on the way. I can happily announce that two new Catalina decals sheets are being produced, however as yet the decal sheet and instruction lay-out are yet to be fully published. Two of Qantas' famous "Double Sunrise" Cats are included on 72020, which having worked for the airline for over 27 years I'm am truly excited.. http://dkdecals.cz/ Thanks Franta - nice one my friend. Cheers .. Dave.
  3. I started this conversion some time ago (before the Revell kit was announced and released) i spent a lot of time refinishing the fuselage as I kept stuffing it up. Decalling is almost finished, still need to sort out the engines paint wise and add the gear. The decals are from Hawkeye Models, sheet designed by Scott G on a request from me. The tail kangaroos are from their A380 sheet and fit quite well. They just need the tip of the tail trimmed once the decals are dry. Quite happy with how this is turning out Just spent about 40 mins trying to lineup the nose cargo door decals Aarrrggghhhh! Oh that will have to do....
  4. Qantas 737-800's 1:144 Draw Decal One of the most attractive airline liveries of recent years has in my view been that applied to the Qantas fleet. The A380, 747, 767 and 737 all look very clean and uncluttered, with that big red fin flash and 'Roo making them instantly recognisable. Draw decal have released a set for the Revell 737-800 kit in their 'Digital Silk' range, covering most of the 738's that Qantas have used. The printing is, as always, razor sharp and neatly laid out on the sheet, on continuous carrier film. No fewer than 32 different fleet names and registrations are provided. A nice touch is the inclusion of two sets of Roo decals to apply one on top of the other and eliminate any chance of the underlying red paint showing through. The leading edges of the red have a thin gold pinstripe, the two lengths on the sheet being more than enough. Red areas for the winglets are also provided, but as the Revell kit has undersized winglets it is easier to paint them after correction. It is important to follow Draw's instructions. The constant carrier film requires that you need cut around each decal individually. Here is how my sheet looks after all the subjects have been removed with a no. 11 blade. It can then be dipped in water, and applied to the model as normal. After allowing 10 - 20 minutes for the decal to grip, a cloth dipped in hot water can be pressed over it to blend it in to the surface. I used a sheet of kitchen paper folded over many times, dipped in hot water from the kettle, being careful not to burn my fingers! The decals will the conform to any curvatures, and stick like limpets to the surface.As with all types of decals, a coat of Kleer/Future will seal them in. More info here Conclusion. Another lovely sheet from Draw, of a livery I have long wanted to have in my collection. Having now built and applied these to a Revell 737 I can confirm that they go on beautifully and make a lovely little model.(In Ready for Inspection) Review sample courtesy of
  5. Qantas 737-800 1:144 Draw Decal Another Revell 737-800 leaves my workbench, this time in the very attractive Qantas livery, courtesy of Draw Decals.Reviewed here Revell's 737-800 is well known by now, it needs the winglets extended as they are too short, and the engines are too flat on the bottom and require building up with Milliput and reprofiling. The intake rings need to be enlarged to fit this, and the passenger window line is too low, so you need to fill them and use decals. It sounds worse than it is, and this corrective work doesn't take that long. Alternatively there are resin engines & winglets avaialble from the aftermarket. The Qantas livery is one of my favourites, it is simple, clean and classy and thanks to Draw Decals I have been able to add one to my collection. I really enjoyed building this one, I had no problems at all, everything went like a dream, unlike some of my other current builds! Difficult to get a 'with something else' picture here. How about some of my other 737's with Draw Decals on? An 800 in Kalula, and a 900 in KLM; Thanks for looking John
