Ok....I've decided....scrap everything I said b4....

1/144, DC9, in Alitalia c/s (Airfix)

1/144, MD80, in SWissair colours (Minicraft)

I'm swapping the decals for these kits, need to modify the AZ sheet and use 2 SR sheets on the MD

My back-up is a Lufthansa Airbus A340

An uninspiring c/s doesnt mean an uninspiriong model so detail detail detail, open doors etc, on all 3 :)

pics up later

EDIT

forget the DC9 & A340,the 2nd one will be a Ghana Airways DC10 in 1/200 scale

I can't even see those little bits. Nothing worse than picking them up with the tweezers then they ping across the room somewhere, never to be seen again !!!!

Come to think of it, we've got an ant problem at the moment. I'm reckoning that they've watched chicken run and nabbed all the pieces and made a full model kit that they're gonna fly off in whwen I'm not looking !!!!

Braz MD80 cockpit...

This has to be painted and decorated - a plain resin cockpit wouldnt look right and there are no control coloums so I added them....and the seat belts.....

OMG....I'msuch a GEEK!!!

doorway interior next....

not sure how much of the cockpit will be seen thru' the pax door but I'll leave the cockpit door open anyway

first cargo door cut out......

and my back-up....

Airbus A340.

It will go in Lufty colours, I need the window frames from the SN/EI kit tho' but with doors and hatches and things everywhere, a plain color scheme doesntmean a plain model....

(you knew that anyway.....go on....admit it....you did)

Looking forward to watching your build threads mate. I want to see how you build them opened up so I can learn from the master himself :worthy:

I know you have seen it, but my Trident 3 conversion thread has some pics of basic interior

http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=34305

Most of my interiors are actually very simple, just a few bits of plastic card cut to shape for the door areas

Hell's teeth !!!

This is like watching Magic's Greatest Secrets Revealed ! :analintruder:

The internal detailing work is astonishing when you remember that kev1n's working in 1/144.

Having said that, the external details could do with a bit of work too ! :evil_laugh:

Keep up the good work kev - you're well on your way to makinhg another stunner !
