The title says it all, and Photobucket seems to be behaving quite well today!

Cheers,

Super job on that, maybe the most handsome airliner ever to take the skies. IMHO of course. ;) Your build & scheme do no damage to that opinion at all. :)

Very much agree with Steve 👆 

 

Also, I do miss those bold designs and retro schemes. Nostalgia really does bite as you get older!

I couldn't agree more Steve. Very seriously considering a retro Qantas scheme for a 737-800, and just now painting a VC.10 C.1. Will post that when it's done.

 

Cheers, Matt

Lovely - still a stunning shape and the RAF scheme shows it off really well.

Hi Matt,

Love your Britannia, especially in that livery.

Looking forward to your VC10, I'm considering one in that livery too.

Cheers,

Ian

That's really neat and a classic airliner too!

 

I've got one waiting to be painted.  Had intended to do this RAF scheme but wasn't sure about masking between the white / grey under the cockpit - how did you go about this?

Lovely model.  I flew from Brize to Luqa, Malta in one in the early 70's.  Brings it all back.

Hello Steve,

Do not forget the Brabazon !! :whistle:

 

Hello Matt,

Really like your Britannia, I used to see 2 britannia in Africa !!

They were far more weathered... I don't remember the name of the private company.

But what they did with this aircraft was amazing....

Great job on your !

Congrats !

Excellent looking model.

I have the Mach2 1/72 kit under my bench but not brave enough to tackle it yet.

Hi Mike,

 

Many thanks. I think the easiest way to make sure you have the demarcation right is to paint the white first, then carefully cut the decals out and lay them on the model in the correct position. Then lightly mark underneath this a pencil and move your masking up a bit beyond that, noting that the cheat line narrows towards the nose and tail. The trickiest part is the zig-zag, but if you get the main line and the point that it breaks back right, you should be OK. I'll have to do the same on my VC-10 very soon, and on my Argosy when I get around to doing that.

 

Thanks everyone else for all your kind remarks. Very pleased to have brought back so many fond memories.

 

Matt

Wow - very nice. 1/144 is a great scale for larger aircraft. I hope the manufacturers continue giving us a good selection of subjects.
