Back in the Saddle Posted October 11, 2021 Share Posted October 11, 2021 My workbench is beginning to look relatively empty again(!), as I have a few builds coming to an end... Time to start something new! I have a couple of Revell 767-300's in the stash. One was picked up on eBay a while ago, when this particular kit (with the Rolls Royce engine option) was getting harder to find. The other was picked up much more recently, after Revell re-released it! I've built one in the past and it's not too bad. It has a few inaccuracies, which I will attempt to fix along the way. Here are the two boxes: The plastic inside is identical, so I'm not sure why the newer version is so much bigger... The new kit very helpfully comes with BA decals, in the 'Chelsea Rose' livery and depicts G-BNWB. I first flew this aircraft in 2003 as part of my conversion training onto the 757/767 fleet: Commander's names have been pixellated in the interest of GPDR! Here is the decal sheet supplied with the kit: Very crisp and detailed, but I'm not sure why the white elements of the tail design were included - they might need to be removed before application, as I'm sure I will not be able to exactly match the colour! The older kit will be finished in the 'Sweden' livery, worn by G-BNWU. I first flew in this aircraft in 2004, after completing ETOPS training to allow me to commence flying on the BA long haul network: The decals are from V1 Decals in Canada and look rather good: Hopefully work on these two will be underway soon! 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
