Still digging in my collection now I bring you one of our service stars: the A340. They arrived in 2000 and were retired this year from service. 15 years flying to Madrid-Frankfurt, Auckland-Sydney, Los Angeles, a few times to Easter Island-Tahiti and even once to the Falkland Islands. I was lucky enough to fly it for 3 years and I am deeply proud of it. I did try to make her justice as much as I could. Real aircraft paint matched to Automotive paints, Gio decals, tail hand masked and painted. Thanks for looking. Part of the family in scale:
Hello everyone Well, first of all i would like to claim myself a beginner. This is my second kit after a pause of 12 or so years (i remember almost nothing from those times except some details have to be painted before glueing). I mean i'm still learning. This is actually the first time i used putty, extensive sanding and a bit of weathering. Here i should stop whining. Basically it is built out of the box except for that it's a conversion of the A340 bloody 'Wiener Philarmoniker' (for some reason noone chooses to build SAS scheme). The Trents are from the Braz models. This was also the first time i worked with resin hence one of my major mistakes - the engine inlets of the trents are quite decently tilted, while mine are upright. The choice of the gear up attitude was obvious as i have to hang the models to the ceiling. I was too scared to try making flaps down, besides main gear bogies are again decently tilted in flight. Oh, and another major mistake is a tricky fuselage color, too yellowish to me. Everything was spray-painted. The decal were from Revell plus a little help from the Draw decals. The weathering was done according to the a.net images which show the A330 SAS fleet surprisingly dirty. Here we go The next oncoming is a baby bus a Revell's A319 with Bearbus Germanwings scheme (i'm considering not to post work in progress as there are dozens already here) Thanks, Steve
