Painting A Model

Sun Mar 16, 2008 12:58 am

I went to a hobby store and found a model of an Avro RJ-85, previously known as a BAe-146-100. I had to have it! I don't want to put the stickers on that come with it. They would make it either Eurowings or FlyBe. I have nothing against either airline, I just want something that is my own. was thinking the original QX colors, but I am also starting to think about Sunworld's second tail colors. What is your opinion?

I take it you got the Revell Germany kit, blue box. Very nice kits. I built their 738 and A320 in middle school. I have 3 kits sitting started in my closet right now, and no time to finish them. A DHC-8, FH-227 and an Islander.

BTW www.airline-hobby.com has tons of decals, kits and supplies for airliner modeling, great service too. (not trying to plug, just a great store)

I thought about that, too, but I wanted something unique. I checked out the site and I saw some of those models at the store I went to today. I am thinking I could get a 380 and paint it in TranStar colors!

Ah. See, im stubborn. When I get models If i dont like the decals, I get some custom ones but I always keep it accurate. IE airline flew the type. But an A380 in TranStar would be cool.
