As has become an annual tradition with me, I always try to start a brand new kit on December 31st, the last of the old and the first of the new, as it were. To that end, I was gifted with this nifty Revell AG 767 airliner model a couple of weeks ago, which I will begin tonight. Later, we’ll begin our annual pig fest, this years menu being boiled shrimp, meatballs and small sausages in BBQ sauce, three different cheeses, chips and crackers, all washed down with some ice cold Fitz’s root beer, a local favorite.

Markings will be Delta Airlines, as that’s what I have (though I like several other liveries), with window decals by ATP, though I may order some nifty Nazca decals for the windows, as they’re more “interesting”. I may (or may not) cover the bottom with Bare-Metal foil, then spray some metalizers to try and give the impression of raw aluminum.

Awesome! Just watch out for warped wings. The starboard wing is like a banana on mine - something I'll have to fix when I tackle the second one.

Thanks folks. I'm really looking forward to starting it later this evening. As to the wings, Kev, box is still sealed, so I'll know more this evening about that. I haven't done an airliner in quite a while, so it should be fun.

Wings are straight as an arrow, Kev.

Some good progress made on this tonight. I added .015 backing strips to window area for putty to follow, assembled nose gear well, and epoxied a fishing weight inside nose.

Awesome. I'll have to double-check the other example I have, as I swear I noticed the warp on it, too. I hope not!

 

You can see it clearly in the following photo:

Fuselage got all taped up after gluing major seams. It looks like there's a groove in the seam, because there is. I usually bevel one surface to assist with gluing and provide a shallow V shaped trench to ensure a 100% complete putty filling job.

Yep, yours is pretty well "off",Kev, I can see that now. My example seems remarkably straight. On some airliners I've built, the vertical stab looks all twisted and warped, not so with this baby.

I'm looking forwards to how you get on with this one Kevin, should be a cracking' kit.  

 

Interested to see how you go about filling all those window holes up.

I didn't spare the horsepower last night, that's for sure. I did chop off the two blade antennas and beacon though, no sense sanding around those.

Lots of Putty, Dan. Actually it's not too bad, and the Tamiya white does a pretty good job of it.

I also took a stab at the stabs. :)  Had them all zipped up last night, but forgot to post them.
