Hello, I'm glad to join this group with a build I have too long postponed. I saw the real subject, one of the last -200 in passenger service, during a wonderful trip to Victoria Falls for my tenth wedding anniversary. I well remember the contrast of this beauty with a modern BA A320 parked nearby: shiny metal wings and lower fuselage, the loud hiss of the turbojets, something I hadn't seen for years in european airports. Back to my home I immediately started searching for a decal sheet and I found a nearly suitable one in the Classic Airlines range: a few mail exchanges with Nick Webb later I had in my hands just the right decals, I only needed a decent kit to make justice but this proved quite a task. Over the years I accumulated the Airfix kit, Authentic Airliners ADV engines and a replacement nose I made myself duplicating the very good nose of the DACO kit. This GB came just at the right time to push me doing this model, so here are the raw materials: And this is the real plane, in all its shining glory! Thanks for looking Fabio
