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 anserws 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
Hello, planning on getting the ak interactive release of the mig 21 PFM with DDR and luftwaffe marking and I wondered wha are the difference between those 2, I know the export mig 21 are different from the russian one and the GP 9 gun pod wasn't available at the start for the german too.

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
I'm done sanding the nose and I found some verry interesting and simple to do air france livery concept from 1975, so I know what to do with my easykit https://actualites-air-espace.blogspot.com/2019/03/et-si-le-logo-air-france-etait-different.html https://www.sebastienbouyssou.com/2009/02/13/air-fr...Jump to post
Another odd thing is when air crash investigation has to blur registration letter for some reason when they show certain plane. I don't get why is it such a issue to photograph an aircraft for them, it's not liek the pilot/passenger will be that visible (depend of how the pic was taken) and what's t...Jump to post
Got the boeing SST today and... I can't my 1/200 scale revell concorde in pan am livery because the pan am logo are too big for concorde, I may do it either inspired by FWTSA or one that was ordered by brannif in a calder livery, not sure when brannif expected their concorde to arrive.https://finear...Jump to post
Hello, asking because this link on british airways liveries history seem to say they at least considered it but decided not to do it because the blue paint was problematic (why?). link to the liveries https://www.yesterdaysairlines.com/ba-l ... -2015.html
Thanks for your answers!
got the revell boeing SST today, one will be pan am, the other braniff flying US color livery from alexander calder (boeing brochure state an entry in service considered for 1975, so it's still valid for a what if braniff aircraft and they had 2 option) https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/7/0/2/...Jump to post
from a brochure from theairchive.com website, they also targeted 1970 for the first flight and saw thing really big with 500 by 1990 at least and they expected the sales to reach 1000 to 1200 (note the brochure date from the time the first concorde flight was scheduled for 1968, it was delayed for a...Jump to post
Hello, reposting it because I didn't knew I needed to mention the source, I got information on the SST first flight from the french book "Concorde-Histoire d'un mythe" by Pierre sparaco, edition docavia. It say the 300 was planned to enter service in 1978, and the first flight in 1972. Wha...Jump to post
Hello, would it be possible to have more information of the project? it look a lot like the A320 and seem to be base on a A300 with CFM 56 engine http://theairchive.net/aerospatiale-memorabilia/

something that I don't like with some people who complain about sam chui being bias is when they act as if other reviewer aren't when their taste and standard will influence their reviews as well and sam acknowledged airlines are going to use im for PR in his skytrax video and I do agree with him th...Jump to post
Got the first 2 revell boeing 747 I ordered yesterday. The cutaway, I'm now hesitating between British airways and SAS because british airways had a weird policy on modelling specific aircraft of their fleet in the 60', revell at the time couldn't put specific registration letters on their 200 decal...Jump to post
Even the one who writte their reviews well can still be not 100% objective, that's why I prefer to watch other reiews channels than just oneJump to post
I'd say subjective because each reviewers have their own standards on what make a flight good even if they want to be the most objective possible their own state can still come in and the experience will vary with everyone, sometimes 2 aircraft from the same company can be in different state (sam ch...Jump to post
assembled the wing yesterday wich putted less trouble than I thought they would. I glued them bit by bit then putted the concorde on its stand to see how it look https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6713.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6714.jpg https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/3...Jump to post
landing gear and engine are done. They're quite well detailed taking in account the kit is from 1965 and base on a 1964 project. I'm assembing the lower wing on the fuselage wich is a bit complicated (but not as difficult as a unicraft model so I don't mind) https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/d...Jump to post
Hello, while going through "Concorde: histoire d'un mythe" from pierre sparaco, BAC and aerospatiael hoped to get 250 order by 1980 (page 98 of the most recent edition), wich airlines did they hoped xwould get it? Maybe they also thought the original customers would order more. THanks for ...Jump to post
My step dad got me a heller 1/125 scale concorde wich I'll do as the 8th concorde air france had the intention to get, for some reason website varry on the concorde option, sometimes only 7 are mentionned for BOAC and air france, other 8. https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/7/7/3/1368773-10105-6...Jump to post
I've seen picture of it in light sand so I'm doing it in that color. I closed the nose and glued it on the fuselage. Didn't thought it'd be longer than a 1/144 scale 747 8F. I'll modify the nose so it'll be somewhat accurate to the prototype https://i.servimg.com/u/f38/20/32/47/80/dsc_6658.jpg https...Jump to post
ok, I'll keep them on model to use them as guide to make the doors. What color should I use to paint inside the nose, the same as the front landing gear bay? My dad ordered me 3 model for christmas, I paid for 2 and the SAS will have a what if interior base on boeing brochure since the revell config...Jump to post
I know I already have 10 kit to build but I decided to start it while waiting christma to get bottles of thinner with acrylic paint (I still intend to use my revell pot, I don't want to waste them).

Out of thinner because I made the bottle fall accidently so I'll concentrate on my advanced freighter engine now and everything I can with brush ... What color should I use for the black of the PS tail? Revell ask me to do a weird mix but it seem to be a majority of red, so wouldn't it end up being ...Jump to post
ok thanks! I prefer to avoid ordering from the US on ebay due to the verry high shipping cost (and it's a pain to search rare airliner there, they'll often cost 100€)Jump to post
Hello, I know around 2002 boeing studied a 800X but I can only find description from fmight global, no drawing. I need one because I want to do it using a revell 8i(it'll have the old LH livery, planning on getting it for christmas with a cargolux cutaway, a SAS with interior and a aurora 747 with K...Jump to post
thanks but note that I'm from france so the shipping cost might be too high for me (never understood why it's so high between europe and the US on ebay)Jump to post
the old 200/100 kit, I already know where I can get the SAS cutaway (wich I'll get for christmas and do with a what if interior base on boeing brochure from theairchives) Per example https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/2/8/0/140280-14745-15-pristine.jpg https://www.scalemates.com/products/img/2/...Jump to post
Hello, I wonder if that exist, becaus whenever I'm looking for a retro revell boeing 747, the price will verry often be higher than 80€ (particularly on ebay, god people sell retro kit at the higher price, a lot being at 100€ or more even without shipping cost).
Thanks for your answer!
you too thanks, I'm done with the primer on my UPS engine nowJump to post
So the lower lobe galley was a thing for other aircraft than the 747, I understand the culture influence interior design as well, like with air india first 747
on the upper deck, another brochure clearly show that airlines can go ham on its design since boeing developed a lot of design, wich mean my SAS 747 200 upper deck lounge can be what if, so it's not much of an issue if it's innacurate (the interior will be based on the general description brochure f...Jump to post
I'll go for unpopular with the lufthansa since it inspire me a lot of model with concept they released when they did their new livery. I do prefer the new aeroflot over the old one .

Beside the airline brand and the customer need, what make airlines chosse different interior, sometimes between aircraft? I'll use SAS boeing 747 200 as example since I'm tempted by the revell cutaway. The upper deck lounge would be a good example since compare to the revell model, both lounge are d...Jump to post
