Hi all,

 

Firstly, thanks to all that followed along by WIP.

 

This was a fun build. Something a bit different for me as it's my first airliner build. I decided to do this as a Swiss Air aeroplane to give to my daughter as it was the first plane she flew in. As such, I wanted to portray it in-flight, not something I would normally do. I wasn't keen on the kit stand, so I used some clear acrylic sheet to make a new upright, and my dad made a wooden base for it. I think this sets it off so much better than the kit parts.

 

The kit went together well, with no real issues to speak of. I decided to paint the side windows and cover them with decals as there is nothing visible inside. The cockpit had minimal detail so I decided to leave this glass clear.

Turned out beautifully Dallas, the work on the flaps are decals or painted? The model has really come to life once completed, a build like this tempts me to try an airplane (or atleast finish off my glider lol)

Thanks. The grey and white are paint. The rest is all decals.

 

I've taken a few more photos today with a better background.
