My first Airliner model, Revell 1;144 Dreamliner, JA842J

Post by jonf45 » Fri Nov 16, 2018 11:19 am

Morning all,
This is my first attempt at an airliner, its the Revell Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, done as JA842J using 26Decals set, as that was the one i flew on to Tokyo in February. The actual kit went together really well and the fit was good. I decided to use putty through the windows and sand down.Wish id sanded down the cockpit glass more, it looked ok until the final varnish then looked a bit "sticky outy"!!!
I broke one fan blade on each engine before trying to get them off the sprue, wish id realised how flimsy they were!
I had issues with the decals(probably more user error to be fair) as a few bent over on themselves, which was a pain, as the rest went on really nicely. It doesn't have the bumps and aerials, so maybe ill look at getting some aftermarket ones....Its a damn sight bigger than my usual fast jets, but was nice to do something different :)
My muse;)
