British Airways World Cargo 744F 1/500
 
At last I finished this 744 freighter: here's a British Airways World Cargo 747-400F, reg. N495MC, World tail "Chelsea Rose" colors, with "Operated by Atlas Air" stickers, 1/500 scale. This was my first try with a plastic made fuselage and wasn't easy as I had anticipated: the white paint over the plastic areas is really fragile and I had to repaint the fin and nose, was quite difficult to make the retouchings into the blue paint, without damage the white.:confused: Because the donor was an Air France Cargo 744F (white stabs) I had to remove and paint in grey the stabs, then painted the corroguards. Anyway I'm really happy with the results and I hope the new ownwer will be happy too.:)

Thanks, dear friends! Yes Allan, it's the one you sent me, actually I already have ordered another AF Cargo 744F, but the one you sent me arrived first. In February I've ordered a Cathay Pacific 744F to become a donor, ignoring the existence of the AF 744Fs, but it never arrived, I'm now in dispute with the seller. On the other hand was better it hadan't arrived before the AF 744F donor: the Cathay 744F has RR engines (I would have drained my CF-6 stock) and has a big portion of the fuselage painted, which would made this project even more difficult.

Edit: my next open nose custom will be a 742F from an extinct airline... maybe by the end of August or September I can make it.

Hmm. I wonder what that might be. I'll keep my eyes open for it.

I think Herpa is already learning: KLM MD-11 PH-KCE, Playboy DC-9 and Viasa/KLM CV-880 were made as customs before Herpa released them!:lol:
