I found a dunlop add showing it in white already in 1965 tho

Hello, something I noticed when I look at artwork or desktop models from before 1968 is they all seem to display metal belly and wings, I haven't seen any entirely white concorde from this period, so if someone know, can you please tell me when white was considered for the whole aircraft, not just t...Jump to post
Founded a drawing showing what the 136 seats configuration would like like in a pre production plane https://cap-avenir-concorde.fr/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/AIR-COSMOS-MAI-1967-4.jpg The french article it's from: https://cap-avenir-concorde.fr/les-dossiers-de-presse/air-et-cosmos/air-cosmos-27-mai...Jump to post
It's been a while I haven't posted update here, here's what my heller concorde currently look like, I intend to use paint from another company than revell for airbrush metal because I had a sprinkle effect. https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_7216.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/...Jump to post
Hello, while looking at a french report on Onera research regarding concorde and its successor, I saw a picture page 5 showing the different configuration studied and I wonder if the fuselage diameter isn't different to the normal concorde. I'm tempted to use the airfix vintage kit for more than one...Jump to post
Ok, this french article from 1968 uses the 132 figure https://cap-avenir-concorde.fr/les-doss ... l-concorde
So no differences with the windows arrangement, thanks!
The link work fine for me, here's a direct one to the pdf instruction, does it work?I just saw I messed up, it was part 33 from step 2 labelled as "klm" in the isntruction https://www.scalemates.com/products/img ... ctions.pdfJump to post
Looking at pics from produced tu 144D, I noticed some of them use slightly different police for their numbers, CCCP-77112 is different from 77110 per example, I wonder why, aeroflot changed branding while they were produced? Thanks for your answers, I noticed the differences while looking at this ht...Jump to post
Hello, I'd like to know more about this part, revell show it as part 18 in step 2 of the manual who can be found here https://www.scalemates.com/fr/kits/reve ... 00--103543
Thanks for your answers!
Aeroflot didn't used all of them too, the one from sinsheim doesn't seem to have been used by them, yet it still had the livery. There were negociation to allow it to fly over europe but considering the rules that were put in place (and flying over the US would be a big no for all SST's).Jump to post
Hello, I know negociation were taking place to allow the tu 144 to fly over europe but I'm not sure wich road were considered during the negociation.
Thanks for your answers!
There were ideas to fly it to japan/over europe, but it seems it relied to the plane being improved and from "concorde-Histoire d'un mythe", the negociation to allow concorde flying over the ussr started in 1974 and the russian asked about their plane being allowed to fly there too.Jump to post
I know, I think if I do a what if tu 144S, it'll be as a joint operation with another airline like JAL. I'm guessing this would necessitate the autorization of the concorde and boeing SST to fly over the ussr since JAL had option for both.Jump to post
The difference of tech is I think one of the arguments against the idea the tu 144is a concorde plagiat, the wing shape is quite different too and they had to redesign it(also seing them side by side helped showing how different they are). I wonder if they wouldn't start a service with jal and they ...Jump to post
Do we know when the IL 62' stopped carying the JAL/KLM logo?Jump to post
ok, so it's a might or might not for the livery depending of how strong the cooperation is.Jump to post
What's the OEM? So if tupolev could get the autorization to fly tu 144 to japan, they'd have a hybrid livery (with the possibility of using both variants to go to japan?). Btw, I went inside a tu 144 at sinsheim, it was a good visit and interesting to spot the differences between it and concorde.Jump to post
I know there were projects/idea of roads outisde the USSR for him such as japan but I'm not sure wich airlines outside aeroflot were thought to be potential customers by tupolevJump to post
so only aeroflot would get them, I wonder how much tupolev expected to sell, surely less than a 100.Jump to post
Hello, I know there was one, revell decided to put one on their A380 cutaway and I've seen drawing showing it as an option, I wonder if airbus ever released concept of it because so far, I haven't found anything and don't know what revell used to do their. The revell cutaway kit boxart showing the c...Jump to post
Tupolev was interested by concorde, but at the same time is it really plagiarism if the final product is quite different ? The wing design being modified on the tupolev shows they were different.Jump to post
The result of my visit at sinsheim, managed to get in both concorde and tu 144 without fearing high but I was still cautious because they're both inclined.. The concorde will be based on a british airways travel agent model in the landor livery a bit different from the real one since the BA name is ...Jump to post
Hello, while tupolev showed interest in the concorde and both look vaguely similar, when I looked the details of both planes at sinsheim yesterday, they were quite different, the interior design was different between the 2, as well as the wing shape (I think the fact the wing had to be modified beca...Jump to post
Hello, I'll be honest, whenever I see a reviewer saying they want to make their reviews unbiased(or as unbiased as possible), I think it's impossible since, no matter if their review aren't sponsored by the airlines, it'll still be biased, their report being influenced by their own taste, standard, ...Jump to post
The progress I did on the concorde this week.While the airbrush worked well on one side, the other, it spitted and I had to clean it. Tried it again on the underside and it worked this time. I did the other side well today and I'm going to go for another layer on the underside https://i.servimg.com/...Jump to post
Hello, I'm asking because when I look for period artwork or pan am desktop models from the time, I often see variation between the liveries, the flag will be in different position or no "pan am" on the wing and I haven't found yet a artwork who correspond to the revell livery (For mine, my...Jump to post
It's been a while but I'm getting back at my airliners and my airbrush (ha a broken part that neded to be replaced not so long ago, now it work). I decided to re-do the primer layer of my A320 neo from revell because I had to re fill the join and get them better and I didn't do the first layer well ...Jump to post
Hello, while looking for a revell boeing 767 300 ER with this livery, I looked for information on the airline and it ran from 2003 to 2007 and operated 6 767 300. If the airline was more succesful and added more destination than the one they planed in the UK, would they get more planes? If yes, what...Jump to post
Hello, by curiosity, if the Tu 144 was more successful and the ussr decided to export it, would they allow it to be sold to the western airlines or only to the warsaw pact one?
Thanks for your answers and sorry for my absence, I know it's been a while.
It's been so long since I haven't posted an update, so here's one. My motivation for my concorde came back, I'm done sanding the underside, now it's time to do the wing top. https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6757.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6757.jpg The last liner kit I...Jump to post

Didn't post my fixed concorde wing and stab. It look much better now and I also started renovating a old heller A380, hesitating turning it in a A380F or A3XX 100F . https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6727.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6728.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/...Jump to post
Hello, did they expected more airlines to get thier plane or the customer airlines getting more after their first order? The number for the boeing 2707 are verry optimistic, same with the concorde when reading pierre sparaco book "Concorde-Histoire d'un mythe". The number for the SST come ...Jump to post
I was at my modelling club meeting this afternoon and decided to work a bit on the concorde there when I remarked my horizontal stab weren't symmetrical, cheked the wing and noticed I didn't did it properly so I unglued then re-glued it and now I see why I had a big step to put putty on. https://i.s...Jump to post
Hello, I'm working on my heller 1/100 scale 1964 concorde project, but I have difficulties figuring out what color I need for the inside cowling. I know part of it need to be black, but I'm not sure for the rest. Can anyone tell me what color I can use for this part? It seem to me be a metal yellow ...Jump to post
My point is that it's not lazy, the concept show they worked on it and clearly spend time and effort on the livery, I don't get how you can't get my point, are you going to say air france livery is the same because it's eurowhite despite the amount of work that went in the rebrand?Jump to post
it's not a bad thing, and sorry but its not lazyness, people who dislike eurowhite should really stop with this one for me, I'll give lufthansa and air france as example, lufthansa did lots of concept for their livery with diferent color, same with air france when they did their 1975 rebrand,here a ...Jump to post
I don't agree with the idea they are similar or that eurowhite is dull, I think it make the aircraft look cleaner and I'd not say air france eurowhite is the same as lufthansa or that lufthansa is the same as LOT because of difference in color, name and tailJump to post
