Ten years of custom making

Hi everyone! 2018 marks, for me, the first decade of custom making. Everything started in early 2008 when a friend and respected W900 member Lollomz, (knowing I was a modeller) asked me to paint the fin of a model he was customizing, a TAROM Tu-154. I enthusiastically accepted, also because I never worked with such small models. Soon after the painting I noticed how the engines were poor of details, notably the lack of the front fan. I then decided to scratchbuilt the fan, blade by blade, and drill the exhaust hole.

The first two customs were a pair of Varig 777-200ERs with the 75th Anniversary stickers, which are still part of my collection.

Then, other customs began to be gradually being made

Re: Ten years of custom making

In late 2008 I finally met Bert and his wife Chris of CB Customs and David of ReMoBa at DUS Boerse, this was a turning point as I began to be part of CBC team, at which I actively helped for one year. During this intense year I began to improve my skills, while making orders for CBC, received the first orders of my own customs, and started developing some interesting projects, such as making the 727's Stage 3 hushkits or re-engining 727s, re-engining A330s, etc.

There was also a custom made in partnership with CBC: Itapemirim Cargo 727!

This was a priceless year and I'll always be grateful and honoured for having been invited to be part of CBC, thanks for believing in my potential, it was so important during my apprenticeship and source of inspiration for many projects and challenges!

To be continued...

Re: Ten years of custom making

I knew from the seven customs you made for me that you pay extreme attention to details, but the skill of adding such a level of detail to a small part like an engine is simply impressive!

Re: Ten years of custom making

Has it already been 10 years???? I cannot believe how fast time has flown!!

The 2 first customs you made for me were the Alaska 734 Combi and the fantasy CO 747-400!! Even after all next amazing ones, these two will remain very special to me. Please keep amazing us with wonderful gems.

Re: Ten years of custom making

Wow, congratulations on the milestone, my friend! Though, to be honest, the high level of details actually made me think you've been doing this longer than 10 years.
