Could become an early Condor airliner (the Lufthansa cahrter flight sister) in the original livery (here's a retro B767):



Just needs some blue trim.  ;D




That's a good lookin' livery right there!

Well, yes, it look a bit like a Condor, but it will be something different.

My engineer now added all the decals form the original kit, so we have some windows on the plane. Looks much better now.



In the meantime, the airline decals are printed and are prepared to be added to the model.

Your engineer has done a good job, as always.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

True, but he appears to have a slightly quizzical look on his face in that pic ? Looks as though he's uncertain about something ?  ;) ;)

Lovely job as usual   :thumbsup:

Well, he told me that he has some fears that the landing gear will not be right. He is thinking quite a while about it now.

I am still not sure which colour scheme to use. Currently trying a few ones on a test model, but so far, there is no real favourite.

Its simply too hot these days, makes no real fun to build some models.

Anyway, at least some painting has been done, after several camo tests, I returend to something more classic:

While the "Ente" is in its final construction phases, something else just got completed:

Last year, I watched the Japanese move "Eternal Zero" with my GF. As the name suggests, there are quite a lot Zeros in it. So my GF bought me a Hasegawa Zero box - with two kits in it - last christmas which of course I had to build.

While still wondering what kind of What-If to make from it, as I already have made a Luftwaffe Zero from Airfix kit, I decided to build the first of the two as a classic Japanese one. But trying to make it it bit used, so here is the result:
