Nice progress on the 767 ... and a nice touch on re-working the engine nacelles.

Keep 'em coming

Peter

Going through this one, replacing all of my pictures (thanks, Photobucket, I really appreciate it), as this one is back on the bench now, at least for a while anyway. I seem to have misplaced the stabs, but if need be I can rob them from one of my other Revell USA kits.

Surfing the web some time back, I found this, a photo that fairly clearly shows the tail logo illumination lights, which I intend to depict on this kit.

The last 767 model that I worked on, was a KLM version of the kit. Unfortunately, this kit and its parts didn't follow me when I moved a couple of years ago.

Due to my initial impatience with this kit, I've had to now add a second, then third layer of putty to the cabin windows. Not a big deal really, but if I had done it correctly the first time, I wouldn't now be doing it again.

OK, window putty all sanded out now, exposing the inevitable low points, which I'm patching with surfacer. Still a couple of hours of sanding/polishing to go, then it'll be primer time. I've also decided to enter this in the OOB category here in September, so I'll not be adding, nor changing, anything else.

Not too bad, really, just prep time to ensure the paint looks good. Airliners can actually be pretty easy to slam together, which is one of the reasons I like them. I built one Delta 767 a few years ago, then utterly ruined it by coating it with polyurethane. Darn shame too, as it was really looking pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself.

Now starboard side and bottom all prepped for primer (once I sand out the small patches of surfacer).

In the future, save yourself a LOT of work filling airliner windows.  I've been doing this for 30 years, and it works great... Way less work.\

 

Cut out the posts between windows, then file the edge down smooth. You end up with a long narrow opening in the side of the fuselage. Use a piece of thick square or rectangular section styrene stock, cut to the length of the opening and of approximately the same width. Glue it in as shown. I use liquid cement to put it in place, then run thick superglue along each edge of it, inside and out. Once it's all cured, simply file it down and sand to match the fuselage contour as shown.

 

You can never get a shadow of the window opening, because the window opening is no longer there. This is the only method I will use on a kit that has open window holes that I want to fill. Everything else has been a headache.

Not bad, J. I might have to give that a whirl on my big 1:100 L-1011.

Looks cool!

Being unfamiliar with, and having never actually owned nor built an airliner, what is the purpose of completely sanding the passenger windows down? Do they sit unnaturally/unrealistically inside from the exterior surface of the fuselage?

Yes, as a general rule, they typically have sink marks in the glass, and almost never fit flush. In addition to that, when using window decals (which I will be using), any dimples in the window openings, will be reflected in the decals, so smoothing them over is needed, especially if the model is to go into a contest, which this one will be.

 

I've seen some modelers use Elmer's or similar to fill in each and every window (after glass installation) for a glass like effect, but this is really my preferred method. Nazca makes some really nice alternative window decals, that portray random windows with shades partially or fully closed, but I'll be going with this old ATP sheet on this bird.

There's also the issue that many airlines order different passenger configurations, which can mean that the window count (though usually not placement) can be different between airlines. And sometimes the size, shape, number, or placement of window openings on the kit isn't accurate either. It's often easier just to fill them all and use decals, especially in smaller-scale kits. And many decals will come with the window details built in to the cheat line decals, so at that point you really have no choice. But as has been highlighted in this thread already, it can be quite difficult to eliminate all evidence of the previous openings. I'll have to give Jennings' technique a go myself some day.
