Let's go to holiday... Caribbean Airlines, 1/144 Revell Boeing 737-800


Recommended Posts

Let's put some color to the sky. It took me 7 years to finish it, this bird was almost finished and waited so long that I add landing gear.

 

Eventhough the decals (Two Six Decals) were a little pixelated for my taste, the livery is so colorful and joy bringing that you overlook easily.

I haven't taken enough picture to make a WIP, so I'd share few steps here if you don't mind.

 

The resin winglets (Contrails) is a must for this kit as Revell's winglets are wrongly shaped.

Very few sunken area to fill

Very-very nice choice of livery and equally nice execution!

 

The pixelated area around the hummingbird wings are really only visible on the close-ups so it must not be that bad in reality.

Now that's the kind of 'Billboard' livery I really like! Bringing a bit of sunshine to Britmodeller.B)

As others have said the pixellation is only noticeable when you're really close up.

Glad you corrected those Revell winglets, they'd really ruin the model otherwise.

Don't feel bad about taking 7 years to finish it many of us have models hanging around unfinished that long and more, I know I have!

Cheers,

Ian

Quite well done! Nice choice of livery, and the good ole' Revell 737...she's a great bird! 7 years??!! No worries...we've all begun something and waited for the right time to finish...the results are always well worth the wait. Very good job! :smile:
