Austrian A321 Completed 1:144

Sat Nov 15, 2003 12:21 am

Hi All,

Couple of days ago I completed Austrian A321 model.
This is how it looks. (I accidentaly used wrong shade of white, it was too late to change it)

And here in the background is my next project. BAe 146 in TNT c/s.

Did anyone completed this BAe model before?

I did the BAE in Lufthansa colors. The landing gear is really tricky to build and I wasn't too satisfied with the end result.

The A321 looks really good. Was it difficult to apply the decals?

P.s.: How do you include your own images on the website? Always wondered...

Good job decaling, but unless my eyes are deceiving me, the paint job is rough and uneven especially on the upper part of the fuselage. If you don't do your painting with an airbrush and are a serious modeller I would suggest getting one if you don't have one already.

Otherwise she looks great!

Lindy...the model looks terrific; I should imagine the decals were fairly tricky, but they came out nice. Perhaps the paint smoothness Bryan commented on is simply a matter of screen resolution. The paint looks fine to me. BTW, I long ago became aggravated with airbrush protocol and have have been very successful using auto touch-up spray cans. I really like using them on bare metal liveries as I can use different silvers to get a panelled effect on airliners. Of course, there are a myriad of whites available, too. Regards...Jack

Maybe I'll finally get myself together and go back to this patient hobby.
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?
