And, once completed, you'll find the cockpit window. ;D ;)

Of course - I will find tow of them.... :)

To check if the putty&sanding went well, I did a complete paint over the complete model. Loosk as if a few spots are left which need a bit more work:



But i hope I can go to the real paint job soon.

Tremendous!! This is going to be one the best ever! Ever! 

Stick a mast coming out of the back to make the tail look a little more "complete" perhaps? Can contain a parachute and you get to add a novel thing to the backstory!  :thumbsup: ;D

Looks very sinister in black, but that curvy Connie fuselage looks terrific nonetheless.  :thumbsup:

The black was just some unique paint to see where more sanding was required.

So the first "real" colour is coming up now.

That seems to be very good work on that sanding job.  I can never seem to achieve a convincing level of smoothness, but that looks spot on.
Thanks!

More painting has been done to give it a classic airline colour shceme - white cabin roof and the rest of it in pure aluminium.

Well, sometimes things go wrong on a project, even in a late phase of it. Like this time  :angry:

When adding the planned decals to the model, they simply desintegrate in the water. No idea why as they did not seem to be too old.

So I have to switch to plan B - its always good if there is a plan B - to choose some other decals. And to adjust the colour scheme a bit first



Again, there was some trouble with the decals, they broke into several pieces. But at least the could be attached at all. Still a bit to go here.

That looks better and better the more you do to it, rubbish decals notwithstanding.  :thumbsup:

Maaaaaan, what IS IT with the airliners ?!!?  I 've had the same thing happen a few times and it keeps trying to happen to my Saudia plane.  Plan for a scheme just to have the transfers go bad...then have to adjust on the fly. I think you managed it perfectly, though, and this scheme is totally KICK ARSE on here... now it almost sort of looks like a FUTURE-Liner or something!  :wub: :wub: :wub:

I don't know, maybe its the size of the decals. I mean, they are much "longer" than the usual ones we use. But the original ones of this kit were just awful, put htem in the water and they were gone. I only had that with very old ones before, but there they looked old before using. Those one here looked perfectly ok.

Anyway, the replacements worked in the end even if they broke into several pieces, too.

Gotcha... I had just tried to use some printed less than 10 years ago, looked beautiful.... brand spanking new right out of the kit and they went into a billion pieces!  :o   Just like you, I wasn't expecting it. Had I known, I would have tried liquid decal fix but who could fathom a pristine brand new sheet going wrong?
