Revell Boeing 747-436 BA Landor scheme

Recommended Posts

As a big admirer of the L-1011 TriStar I would have a hard time to let go of one of them...

I guessed that would be the case but thought it worth asking :winkgrin:

Certainly looking forward to seeing them some time in the future

Thank you all for the encouraging comments.

Gives me the drive to do another Revell -400.I have another one on hold at my local modelshop.

A United Airlines 747-400. :winkgrin:

Thank you very much for these encouraging words.

Of course there will be some more BA airliners show up in Landor C/S in near future.There will be the 737-200,747-200,767-300 and the L-1011,as I have 2 Otaki kits waiting for a nice paint,the other might be in Caledonian livery if I find a decent decal set.

That must have been a great and unforgettable experience those days.

On my many trips to Hongkong I also had many 747's of different airlines for the rides.2 times on the BA 747-400 as well as on the 747-300 back in the days of Swissair.

I really love the Jumbo as its much more comfortable than the,in my opinion,plastic plane A380.

Sad that the 747's are getting retired and are replaced by that huge pile of plastic (A380)

Hi Alex

that's a lot of good news - don't forget to have a bash at the BA Landor DC-10-30 they inherited from Caledonian.

Great work mate. I got the kit a while ago from eBay (ridiculous price like you said). Didn't do any adjusting of it but got the Union Flag decals.

Yes,I considered the DC-10 as well.I have the Revell issue with BA and Martinair Holland decals but they are in very bad condition.

I will ask Tod from Pointerdog7 if he would produce a new set for the DC-10 if I can't find some replacement parts in my spares box.

Are you using Chrome as your browser? I have the plugin that blocks PB's jamming algorithm and can see Alex's images.

 

@tommchowat, your BA line up looks great. I have the current scheme 748 sheets for one of my 748f kits and A380.

Here are the new pics of the Landor 747-400 as promised

 

The engraved panellines are too heavy on the kit.I missed to correct it on this build.I have 3 more -400s in my stash which will be modified in that matter.

Yes,I am using Chrome.

But I switched to imgbb.com for my pics.Its far more easy and faster than PB.

Nope Romeo Alpha Yankee, Safari on ios and Firefox on a Pc. Sounds interesting the plugin though, what's its name?

 

Beautiful work Alex! As usual. Thanks for the explanation on the nose in the original post btw. Somehow I still can't render in my head the changes you describe. Do you have pictures of the necessary modifications to the nose?. Or maybe in a future build. The nose looks good to me, great work again. As I have several Revell -400s in my stash yours is very inspiring in not throwing them away and going for Authentic Airliners. That -200 looks great too! Landor is very classic.

Sorry for the late reply.Work and other issues kept me from modelling and attending this thread.I will try to explain the mods I did on my -400s and take some pics.I need to get one unbuild from my stash in the next days as I did not made a WIP on those 747 builds.
