Re: N3424V Collection Additions

An interesting set of arrivals you have here and congratulations on surpassing 100 models!

The United B787-10 is stunning - I really wanted to add this one to my collection, but the 'fake' registration is virtually unforgivable from Gemini, especially on what is likely a corporate model for United Airlines. The same thing happened with the United B777-300/ER when Gemini released the model too early without waiting for the final registration to be confirmed. Still, this aside it looks like a superb model!

- Cal.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks Thom and thanks Cal.

The 787-10 is a good model, but there aren't many base images yet to mash with.

The two "new" classics however have more choices.

Here's mish-mash two of the Braniff B720.

Now I don't know exactly what is going on here. The base photo is from the USA government archives, but there was no explanation other than an American Airlines DC-3 and a stagecoach.

But I thought, just for fun, what could be more "'Murican" than a 'Murican Airlines DC-3, cowboys, horses and a stagecoach. "Yee-Haw!!!"

As always, thanks for looking.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Airline websites can provide good shots for a mish-mash attempt. This one is from United's website of the B737 Max 9. It made a good subject for a 'mash attempt.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Holy moly that's a good one Mike! You continue to perplex with these mashes, I really like the angle on this and the setting!

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

All great 'mashes Mike! I have to agree with Thom though and say that the United B737-9/MAX is fantastic! It's always great to see a mix of the old and the new on your thread.

Thanks for sharing!

- Cal.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks Guys!

Found another United in flight base photo on their website. It was too good to pass up a mish-mash attempt.

There hasn't been a 'mash of "Ruby Tuesday" for awhile, so I dragged her out. Although there are a few similar 747 at the gate 'mashes posted, the light was too good in this one not to give it an attempt.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Thanks to both of you. I just wish I could find more air to air stuff to work with.

Been on Boeings for awhile, so I thought I attempt some Airbus birds.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

Added two B737s to the collection. I have at least on representative model of the 737s except for a -400, -500, and -600.

I was able to add a -400 and -500, but it appears a -600 will be a tall order as there weren't many models made.

Both of these models are "old-new-stock" so it is back to no antenna mounts and bad engine rims. Oh well!

The 734 is a Gemini model of a GB Airways bird operating for British Airways with dolphins on the tail and named "Blue Poole" registered G-TREN.

The 735 is a Phoenix model of the short-lived airline SkyEurope OM-SEA and has a photo of actress and model Adriana Skenarikovya-Karembue on the port side. While the actual aircraft looked nice,
the screening of the model's photo on the model, OK at normal viewing distance, doesn't work as well in a mish-mash close-up.

I did what I could to make it work in a 'mash, but all of you can be the judge. The starboard side should work well in a future attempt. It is a colorful livery.


Thanks for looking.

Re: N3424V Collection Additions

A couple of unusual arrivals here Mike! I really like the British Airways B737-400 and it’s especially nice to see people still picking up models with the ‘World Tail’ designs.
