1/144 Emirates A380-900 conversion

Recommended Posts

Hi all, as you airliner nuts know, I do like an A380.... So for my next trick I'm going to be doing something different. I'm going to do a 900 conversion as Emirates, but before I go into detail I'd like to say a big thank you to TOM PROBERT for donating the built fuse.... Thanks buddy, I'm going to be building the 19 frame stretch ( god help me ) I don't know how big the plugs will be but I'm hoping that counting the windows on the graph will help me. I was worried about the front wings, but looked on other sites and they all say the same " the wings on the 800 were built with the 900 in mind " I will be starting this on Friday because I'm off. If anybody has a set of revell Emirates 380 decals and they want to part with them please let me know. Need 2 sets can trade or send payment via Paypal.

Front space is 51mm and the rear is 28mm.

Just part of the long road!

he'll be even more bonkers if he super-details it and installs a cockpit, opens up all the doors, puts the seats in, details the cargo bays, etc etc etc.....

tho' it's the kind of bonkerism that I like :)

I'll admit to being a passionate studyier of bonkerology.....

...Not using my FC fedex sheet as kev1n said they are to good to wast on a crap kit

Unless you can fix it, any decal would be wasted on that particular kit
