My compliments for this little beauty:goodjob:! And a great livery.

 

I just received my AVIS 1: 72 Optica kit from the Ukraine:

Thanks!

I have the Avis kit on backorder from Hannants. Thanks for the glimpse of what's in the box. From the sheer number of transparent parts, it looks like it's possible to build the model with at least one door open?

Very nice. You should make the CFM Shadow to go with it next. That had a cool paint job I recall as well. My mates dad was the designer of the aircraft! He still has the fairing between the wing and cockpit painted in the movie colours in his garage.

Thanks. Yes, I'd love to build a Shadow, too. The solar panels and weird Buddhist(?) art might be a challenge, though.

Hi Hamiltonian,

 

I made a better and detailed preview for you😉:

As you see, you could make it with doors open but you would have to cut the door loose from the transparent side parts...:confused:

Ah, that's great, thanks. Looks like I'd have had a lot less messing around with plastic card, brass wire and scribing tools if I'd waited for the Avis model!

 

I see I was mistaking the separate roof panel for a side door in your initial picture.

 

Thanks again.
