Good evening all !

The Airbus A300 is now completed. It has not been without trouble.

This one being the first one, I fumbled to decide how to handle the wing and set which order to fix the elements on :

Every little movement causing a piece previously glued to fall down (Slats and spoilers have a very small contact surface) !!!

Holding it too tight causing the finger prints miserably printing !

AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! CUT AWAY FLAPS AND SLATS NOOOOOOOOO!!

Personally I try to stay away from this sort of thing cos everytime I try it I screw it up and cut too much or too little and then try to fair everything in to to make it look half decent. You my friend do a much better job than I could every do. Top Job mate!!

Here's a 737-200

I messed up with the reverses (on the pictures above), so I reworked them.The exhaust body was too short and the buckets were intermeshing with the flaps.

I had to work on the flaps as well. On the 737-200 a small part remains attached to the engine pylon while moving back.

Yes, the landing is very short.

It is because the buckets were not visible on the runway, but are on the stripes background.

A few more pictures of the 777-200.

The stabs are not yet fixed as you can see by their position. You will certainly also notice (as I did looking at the photo) that I have inverted the engines (the strake being outboard instead of inboard as on the real aircraft) :

Following on :

A loooong time ago, Daco granted us with a B-737-300 and to go along with it, beautiful sets of decals for Western Pacific airplanes. They were also released in 1/200th scale. The major problem is that, as it has been said, Hasegawa released the B-737 in both -500 and -400 types, but as no Japanese airline used the -300, this type never came out.

The solution was to customize and shorten a -400. The method proposed in an other thread may be a good one. I used my own, having been satisfied with it when I made the Aéropostale 737-300 (see above).

I am not fully satisfied with the result, as the decals are rather thick (and tend to break when drying on sharp curves) and have quite a lot of overlapping areas.

Softening liquid is required.

Daco instructions apply for its own version (1/144), and he probably had no chance to try them on this model !

Therefore, concerning some areas, they are not suitable for the Hasegawa’s.

Unfortunately, I realized it to late, the decals already wet and on the kit, which explains they are a little wrinkled and damaged at some places as I had to removed them (with the damages and the rage you can imagine).

So the result in the back part around the fin and the back door is not accurate if you compare it with a picture of the real airplane. The orange shape aft of he wing is also set too low.

But I was satisfied with the way I made the fuselage cuts as the windows and other decals fit on the fuselage.

On this very type, the problem with the decals occurs in the back part. On this kit, the horizontal tail is one piece and is set through the fuselage, while the vertical tail comes last to lock it from the top.

The tail decals must be applied first with the vertical tail on, then cut around the base of it, make the slots for the horizontal tail to go through, remove fin and then assemble the tail elements together. This last stage can wait until the end. This will apply for other decals such as The Simpsons.

The decal sheet is full of tiny details and you'll need a lot of patience to look out for the numbers and the order they must be put on.

I have a spare set and intend to make the next one a perfect one. But Broadmore seems to be a nice option too. What about the Simpsons ! You just need too many 737s.

I can reassure those who made this kit before on one point : the bits removed from the -400 can be used on a -500 to build a-300.

Beautiful ! Is this a conversion of the "regular" Hasegawa Tristar kit or is it the Platz conversion ? I have the later one in Pan Am livery, a very nice conversion, though not cheap. I just love the busy looks of airliners in landing configuration, very dynamic !

Félicitations !!!

Desert Storm Tristar on a Take off run :

Like on the real one, the faded paint lets the white paint and bue writings show at places (nose, tail, fuselage side).
