Re: My collection

Thanks Marat! It does seem like 3D printing is the wave of the future, and im curently looking into making a fantasy SAAB jet that never got off the drawing board. After that, the Yak-42D. ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/neutral

I am going to paint them, the only question is how. Im not very good at masking, im not very good at freehanding, so i think i'll just paint them gray and slap some stars on the tails and wings. Not very realistic, but it's good enough for me.

I just heard from F-DCAL: my order was shipped TODAY. More than a month after it was placed. I hope they were worth the wait.

Today i added two new models to my fleet. Both from the same manufacturer, both model and prototype, and both from the same airline.

Re: My collection

Nice addition, Oskar! ))) It's so interesting to see the same livery on different planes. I think I can look at this for hours...))))

Re: My collection

Thanks Marat. ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/smile

Yeah, i love the TWA TriStar. I have the delivery colours and the 1995 livery, but not the twin stripe. Yet. ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/wink

Russian aircraft sure had the upper hand in numbers in this order.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Btw, just for the record, i did find a not so important fail on the Aeroflot retrojet, namely the number of windows between the emergency exits and the hammer and sickle logo. There should be more than three, but that's not a big deal.

Today yet another custom donor arrived. This time it is in the shape of an Aeroflot Tu-154M in the new colours. And as soon as i can afford the decals($45 for a custom set), it will become... RA-85637 with CSKA Moscow decals!

The little strip-down job there is* will be done shortly.

*Registration on wings and one SkyTeam logo need to be removed. The tail reg also, but that's plastic so i'll have to find out how to do that first.


Сообщение добавлено: 28-09-2013 17:45:19

Well, the stripdown of the model is complete, and the plastic tail was not damaged at all. So for now, here are some pics of RA-85735 and former RA-85735.

I am hoping to buy the decals on Monday or some other day this week.

Re: My collection

Sorry, Navlad, but i got this one from a friend who didn't want it anymore. I have been trying to help a friend find one, but the only place i could find it was in Australia.

A little update on the custom front: while i am still awaiting the arrival of my Il-86 decals i have finally got around to ordering a new set of decals for my long since stripped 737-200. Instead of becoming an Eagle Air of Iceland jet it will become an NWT Air jet. ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/biggrin2

Wish you they arrive ASAP! )))) As customs relate to me, I'm waiting for arrival of 3 liners by Sergio from Brasil. Hope they arrive OK, then wait for the photos on my updates page. ))))

Re: My collection

Thanks Oleg. Actually, my Il-86 decals arrived today and i am working on the model at this very moment. Pictures will come as soon as all the decals are in place and the sealer is dry.

Wow, i envy you. Sergios level of accuracy is amazing!

Сообщение добавлено: 03-10-2013 19:49:16

Just finished! I got the decals in the mail today and this is the result. It may not be 100% perfect, but i am very happy with it and that's all that really matters.
