Thanks for the supportive comments one and all.BigGrin

I`ve come to a halt with the wheels as I`ve run out of Tamiya XF1 matt black for the tyres and with no shops open till Monday I don`t think even a Quick Fit Fitter can help with that one.

Flapper LOL Flapper

Roll on Monday Blink Blink

NEWS FLASH

Just received some info that Vallejo Black/Grey is good for tyre rubber, which I have.

Have just painted one tyre and its 100% better than Tamiya XF1.

Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

Now they say the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

I love a Pud LOL LOL

I have attached below a pic of two tyres. One painted with Tamiya XF1 and the other with Vallejo Black/Grey.

I`m going for the Vallejo route, I`ll let you decide on your preference. BigGrin

Update time folks. BigGrin BigGrin

Finally got to the end of painting the wheels and with a fall in temperatures have also managed to start on the white topcoat.

As the kit does not come with the modern day livery decals I was looking at a really tricky final paint job, but I`ve managed to track down the decals from a company in the Ukraine and I`m awaiting delivery as I write this.

Included pics are the wheels, the bit of top coating done and a pic of the decals from the web.

Until next time

Nice job Derek.

Really good looking model and you are doing it proud.

Weather beginning to agree with me now. First time in 2 months that i got into bed last night rather than laying on top of the bed :-)

Internets great for finding all your bits and pieces. Look forward to seeing how your markings turn out.
Happy Modelling

It is one awesome plane. Drool Drool Drool

I`ve only seen it once at East Midlands, we usually only see the smaller four engined An-124.

I`m still awaiting the arrival of the Revell04958 1:144 kit of the An225 onto the market. Rumour has it its not far off. Blink Blink

Hi All,

An update is long over due Blushing, but here we are.

First the base surface is finished and the basics of the plane exterior is done, the nose also has its decals fixed in place.

Then three pics of the exterior decals and then a pic of the display cover on the base.

To do: Wire the base ready for the internal lighting of the cargo hold.

Fit the forward and rear ramps, plus nose section.

Fix plane to base and cover.

Will update with final pics soon.

Very nice paint finish and not an easy one to pull off.

Smart looking display case - is that something you have built?

Thanks for the comments Tony. BigGrin

As for the display case the basics are shown here:

https://forum.model-spac...spx?g=posts&t=28722

Costs were approx £80 taking into account that I recycled stuff for the base.

3mm perspex cost £60 of that total, but its big at 66cms wide x 61cms depth x 36cms height and included a large tube of sealant, a sealant gun and P+P.

Different grades and finish of perspex material are available here:

http://www.plasticsheets...ar-polycarbonate-sheet/

I enjoyed the case build, all it needs now is a polish up job and its complete.


Hope to have another update soon.

That is an even "Bigger" well done as that case looks really good.

You could set yourself up doing these as a sideline.

I will have a look through your links.
