Hi guys

Following in the footsteps of the DC-10 comes this - the new Zvezda 747-800 done in an Air New Zealand What-If scheme
I was going to paint this in the current black and white scheme but decided to change it somewhat to make it more colourful
Decals are from Old Model Decals (NZ) - a mix of 777 and 747-400 and cockpit and cabin windows from Authentic Airliners

I am currently building a 777 and will paint it int he same scheme I think\

Thanks for looking

That is beautiful work! :bow:

Second that, looks awesome!  :wub:

BTW: Is the green/black fuselage/tail decoration with the fern leaf a decal or painted?
The different window designs are pretty, too, this should look awesome in a beauty pic with a runway setting!  :rolleyes:


thanks guys

Dizzy -the fern is a decal - part of a 777 decal set from Old Model Decals. The tail is actually blue, although it hasn't really shown that well in the photos - despite taking them in daylight.  :-\


Stunning  :thumbsup: Wiffie nomination on the way
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

If you plonked that on the Airliner SIG stand at Telford no-one would blink an eyelid, they'd all assume it was real.  :thumbsup: :bow:
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

Thanks very much guys. I'm happy with how it came out. It's big though! Had to do a major reshuffle of the ol display shelf in the office to accommodate it and the up coming 777. I'll post some pics of that one once it's done
