The IPMS UK Scale ModelWorld show is taking place at Telford this weekend on November 11th and 12th. Those who attended are reporting another excellent show. The 2018 show will be held in the same location, on November 10th and 11th. Note to self: start saving the $$$ to attend!
Vintage Flyer surprised us this week with the release of two very nice new decals for the Lockheed Electra, both released in 1/144, 1/115 and 1/72 scales:
- VFD144-246 VFD115-246 VFD72-246 American Airlines (final cs) L.188 Electra
- VFD144-247 VFD115-247 VFD72-247 Ansett ANA L.188 Electra
Ahh, AA Electras … cool. Been some time since I’ve worked on the airliner models, or ordered decals. Might just have to acquire that decal set in 1/144 here in a bit. Yesterday I dug out the Revell Germany Constellation to do a bit more on. There are several Minicraft Electras needing attention, especially a silver AA one with some damage to the silver paint on fuselage above wings. Am pondering what to do since it had been clear coated with Future over enamel spray paint and decalse except the windows and fuselage stripes are on. Am looking at the acrylic model paints and the airbrush, and the Microscale trim film decal.
