Simply incredible models! The World Tails were amazing, the idea was brilliant and lovely. Too bad the idea backfired and didn't last long.

Beautiful models, as always! :wub: :tt1:

And the eleventh and last for this batch is a BA Cityflyer Saab 2000, registered G-CDKA, 1997 (Union Flag) colors, 1/500 scale. The real propliner was the 6th Saab 2000, delivered new to Crossair on August 1994, as HB-IZC, transfered to Swiss on March 2002, returned to Saab (SE-006) on August 2003, to Soder Air as OH-SRC on December 2003, back to Saab again on May 2004, taken by Eastern Airways on March 2005, as G-CDKA, leased to BA Cityflyer on May 2015, returned to Eastern Airways on June 2018 and then stored at ORB on August 2018. My second 3D printed model after the first, unpleasant try, with an Air Baltic Bae 146-100 from many years ago. Now that the material has been improved the results are much better, the paint dries normally. Even with the improvements some of the flaws still remain, such as the quite rough surface (more intense on some models) and on few models there are some print defects which need to be corrected, which means extra work. Anyway the final results are much better and this turned out to be my top favourite of the batch.

Whoa my friend...those 3 British Airways B744s...super stunning!!! Too sad G-BNLO (the 15th B744 delivered) and G-BNLV (the 21st B744) are no longer flying...G-CIVO, however, is still flying but, won't be too long before she's retired too!!! G-VIIL looks splendid too, Sergio!
