Viking

"I vont to be alone". Greta Garbo in 1:144 scale.

Recommended Posts

This summer I took the family for a holiday in Stavanger, Norway, flying from Manchester with Norwegian.

The aircraft waiting at the gate was LN-NOM 'Greta Garbo'

so when Ruben of Lima November decals announced a sheet for this very aircraft I just had to get one.

The kit is the Revell 737-800 with my own mods to extend the winglets and fix the undersides of the engines to get the correct shape. This particular aitcraft carries a satellite receiver on top of the fuelsege in front of the fin, and this was scratchbuilt from plasticard. After that it's an easy enough build.

The Lima November decals are superb, fitting very nicely and with good colour density. All are silk screen printed except for the 'Greta Garbo' on the tail which is laser printed. The instructions are very good, even containing photos of the real aircraft including a good close shot of the satellite instalation.

So, I introduce you to Miss Garbo....

Nice model.

I bought those decals a few days ago - Greta looks so attractive on the fin.

Nice one John.

You can't stop there you know, the full fleet should be replicated.
