My take on Amodel's Sud Aviation Caravelle III finished off in the markings of VIASA.

 

I enjoyed the build although the undercarriage was an absolute nightmare to put together. Wings fences were made from thin plastic sheet as this boxing didn't come with photo-etched parts. (Luckily I had Amodel's 10-R version to hand, so their parts were used as templates).

 

Classic Airlines decal sheet (CA144-419) was used and it will come as no surprise that they were beautifully printed and performed flawlessly. (It does give you the option to paint the tail and this is the route I took).

That is a real beauty Mike, superbly finished as usual. I quite like classic-airlinres decals, they perform well and do some very nice schemes.

 

Cheers

That's a superb model Mike. Excellent build and attractive, unusual livery.

 

The natural metal is particularly impressive. What did you use for it?

Ha!! Oh no it hasn't, it's disqualified once you've shown the whole world and his dog (or even just me & Ken - he'll probably be lurking in the shadows!!) Really bad planning that Mike, could have saved yourself a lot of work... :rofl2:

 

Still, another stunner off the dining room table - and two in a week? Matches my output for most years...!!

 

Lovely job!  :)

That's another lovely looking model Mike. I haven't seen one built up yet, but might be tempted to get one based on your result with the kit.

Thanks for posting.

Very impressive and a beautiful build Mitchum. Nick Webb does indeed produce beautiful decals.

Thanks Dave. I used AK Extreme Metal Aluminium on the fuselage and wings. "Corogard" areas on the wings were done by spraying the aluminum with AK Ultra Matte Varnish. Not sure if they existed on the real thing but they look the part.

Thanks Keith. I don't suppose you'd have any idea as to how I can delete this post and wipe your memory clean ? (Ken's memory may need a bit of 240 grit) 🤣

Thanks Chris. I have to admit that I've taken a shine to Amodel Caravelles and Eastern European kits as I like attacking polystyrene with sanding blocks and grinders. It's the painting bit that I don't like.

Cheers Mohawk (don't worry, your identity is safe with me......).

 

To be fair, I didn't think I'd finish my Twin Otter in time, and Keith offered to let me rent one of his until the voting had been completed. :rofl2:
