  1. Hi - can anyone make any paint suggestions for the blue of the BOAC Golden Speedbird livery? I am a seasoned military aircraft modeller but just getting into Civilian Aircraft as I want to make some BOAC aircraft, mainly as I flew on them as a kid (now that dates me). For info, I tend to use either acrylic or lacquer. Many thanks.
  2. A long time ago on a modelling forum far, far away I started a project I am determined to finish and due to me having trouble posting pictures on said forum I decided to bring this project across to where all my other crazy ideas (they just might work!) are. so to begin the 747-600 if built would have been the longest 747 ever at 279 feet long with a wingspan of 250 feet. This means stretching the fuselage by 100mm with a 40/22/38mm split and the wings by 48mm each. As you can see I have elected to keep the stretch to a minimum by removing as little as possible from the SUD and up
  3. So I am looking my next project and I have Revell civil Condor waiting. I was thinking options related to this, that are quite limited, Some were used by Deutche Lufthansa, Det Danske Luftfartselskab, Syndicato Condor and Cruzeiro do Sul. Danish machine was used later by BOAC, but was this always in camouflage? Or was there period without?
  4. Hello, Building my BOAC 707 I noticed that the BOAC decals for the engine pylons didn't fit wery well. I had to cut the white away from the Engines and use the supplied trimfilm on the decal sheet to fix the gaps on top of the pylons. Now I wonder if I have to expect the same thing with the long four-parts BOAC dark blue fuselage decals as well? What can be done to avoid any problems during decalling? Build thread at IPMS Stockholm... https://www.ipmsstockholm.se/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10504&start=50 Cheers / André
  5. One of the great things about Britmodeller is learning from and being inspired by other modellers’ work. Some time ago @Turbofan posted a wonderful BOAC Super VC-10 in RFI and that was the push I needed to do one of my own, despite knowing I could never match Ian’s standards! My model was actually completed several months ago but I didn’t post it at the time because I wasn’t happy with some aspects, particularly the finishing. Unlike Ian who sensibly painted his cheatlines and fin, I used Two Six Decals. The cheatlines proved to be thick and intransigent and the less said about the fin decals
  6. A month of hard work and 'Foxtrot Oscar' is ready. OOB Airfix build with Authentic Airliners decals. The usual old Airfix woes, but a satisfying result after all.
  7. Well I finally finished her... I have to say a big thank you to BM member sailorboy61 for kindly sending me a replacement BOAC decal after I managed to rip off the original removing some masking tape! Cheers Iain
  8. Roden have released two gorgeous kits of the Vickers Super VC10 in 1/144 scale. This iconic aircraft is available in two different versions, with either the distinctive BOAC livery or East African livery.
  9. Gentlemen & Fellow Modellers, I am pleased to announce that the Roden Bristol Britannia in Monarch Airlines livery has now been released. for illustrations of this super model please go to http://www.frogmodelaircraft.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=305 I can also confirm that the VC10 will be released before Christmas. The first version will have decals for a East African & BOAC aircraft with a Tanker version to follow. Roden do listen to the modeller and I can assure you all that some very exciting releases are in the pipe line, please keep your suggestions coming and I will
  10. New Airfix 707-436 in BOAC colours. Nice build excpet a lot of trimming needed of excess plastic. Also a word of warning- DO NOT use old spray varnish if it starts coming out like syrup! it makes a mess had to redo the white cos of it.
  11. Bristol 175 Britannia Roden 1:144 The Bristol Type 175 project, the initial programme name which eventually matured into the famous Bristol Britannia, came about from two different post-war requirements: first, an earlier design specification from the Brabazon Committee, which embodied lessons learned from the Brabazon project; second, an urgent need from BOAC in 1946 for a Medium Range Empire (MRE) passenger transport aircraft. BOAC had been looking at purchasing the new and very efficient Lockheed Constellation however, in the austere immediate
  12. De Havilland Comet 1A G-ANAV – BOAC South African Airways Charter – 1953 FRsin (injected plastic) kit. A fairly rough kit but it turned out OK. The decals were excellent. Undercarriage was replaced because the kit items were too small. Finish is Halfords Appliance White on top with Halfords Nissan Silver below, coated with Rub N Buff, polished and sealed with Klear. Commission build for a Comet enthusiast.
