    Chances Of A Hasegawa A380?

    Revisiting this old thread, there now is a strong possibility that an Hasegawa A380 kit may happen if ANA's announcement is anything to go by: https://www.knaviation.net/ana-flying-honu-a380-details Cheers! Scott.

    I'm afraid not Ash - but it wouldn't be hard to do since it's just a modified TWA livery. BTW, there were livery differences between the model used on in-flight shots and the real 707 used in on-ground shots... Cheers! Scott.

    Need Heavy Airliner Tires...10 of them

    If you get really stuck, Bra.Z Models have just released a set of resin wheels for the Eastern Express L-1011. Scott.

    F-resin 1/144 Br.763 decals?

    F-Dcal do an Air Algerie sheet: http://www.f-dcal.fr/decals/index.php?id_product=1045&controller=product&id_lang=1 Scott.

    Looking for 1/144 737NG sharklets

    Just for your clarification: "Sharklets" is the name Airbus call their new winglets, because "Winglets" is a Boeing copyright. So, even though they look similar, Boeings have winglets and Airbus have sharklets. Scott.

    Embraer 190

    John, An E-190 has a full complement of 26 pax windows with the overwing exit on the 12th. An E-195 has a full complement of 29 pax windows with the overwing exit on the 13th. Those Jetblue decals are actually for an E-195. Likewise with the fuselage cutting, you'll have to trim 1 window off the front and 2 off the rear for an E-190. Scott.

    Embraer 190

    Guys, I have located the original conversion notes from 8A Decals (which had the wrong measurements), and have corrected it for everyone's benefit. It agrees with what Trojan Thunder said earlier. Basically, remove 1 window forward and 2 windows aft of the wing... Scott.

    civilian hercules

    Boz, Alaska's L.382Bs were L-100-10s, so no kit conversion is necessary. Just remember to fill-in and paint over the lower flightdeck windows situated behind the nose for civil versions. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Alaska-Airlines/Lockheed-L-100-Hercules/0121834/L http://airlinersgallery.smugmug.com/Lockheed-Aircraft/Lockheed-382-Hercules-C130/i-5V2zdMV/0/L/Alaska%20382B%20N9227R%20(61)(Grd)%20SEA%20(JGC)(46)-L.jpg http://img.wp.scn.ru/camms/ar/98/pics/5199_1.jpg Scott.

    RIB Hobby have also done the special China Southern 787 scheme: http://www.kitshobby.com/ribhobby/rib_product/RB-787003/RB-787003c.html It also comes up on eBay from time-to-time. Scott.

    Zvezda A-320 1/144

    What is confusing is Zvezda have re-used the same product number and basic boxart as the earlier Heller re-box, so beware! Scott.

    Qantas aircraft name fonts

    QANTAS doesn't necessarily follow that convention. See here: One or two letters are modified from the standard character set, but it is the one I use for the QANTAS & Jetstar decals I design for Hawkeye Models Australia. Scott.

    Qantas aircraft name fonts

    You'll just have to use trial and error. Pay attention to positioning relative to other features such as how many windows along the titles go etc. Scott.

    Qantas aircraft name fonts

    MH, For the aircraft names, the 737s and 767s use "Helvetica Normal". The A330s and A380s use "Frutiger LT 55 Roman", of which an italic version is used for the "Spirit of Australia" titles on all aircraft. The registrations use "RAF_PW_ATH" and the aircraft type (in front of door 3 on the A330) is "Airbus Special". The now newer "QANTAS" titling is a customised font which you can trace from logos on google images. Scott.
