Is this one to carry an Austrian livery? ;)

Lukasz, I am sorry but these markimgs are reserved fot the next project, a 'Bristol Austria'.

The first two pictures document, what happened in the very first minutes of applying the kit decals. Well...
I had a second variant with a decal set for Britannias from Caledonian, made by "26 decals". The worked quite fair. For the cabin windows I did use the decal variant from the 26-sheet. I did not use the Caledonian markings from the beginning because I had no idea how to correct a certain color-problem. Can you find out, what is wrong? :)

That's why I prefer to paint the bigger stripes if I can. On the other hand - many thanks for testing the 26 stuff before I started it :D

not sure about the colour issue - the yellow seems to be "different " on the first pictures....

Jürgen, he explanation is: there should be a fine white line running along the lower edge of the golden band - also below the elegant curvature along the bow. It would be a lot of work to paint this precisely beforehand, because there is no white printed on the decals.
Lukasz :) I really enjoyed doing!

A few last picture of the Britannia being build; last "finishing touches" will be applied, but more or less Britannia is in the home strait. Wheel struts have got some wiring- a little bit on the thick side I guess :)

Great build Roland, it was a Britannia that my parents travelled to Cyprus on in 1960, they loved it. :)

Finished at last! What an experiential project! The whole thing was a test drive for "bigger" 1:144 projects: a C-124 Globemaster and a Cargomaster are to follow. But also this construction was really fun. Thanks for your comments and your interest!

It looks great. Mach2 is a "miracle".

Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you Alex! A small correction: It is the Roden kit.
16. April, 08:58
Very beautiful!

Alex Rodionov
Sorry. I look Roden is not a gift at all too.

Thank you both! The only Mach 2 kit i ever had the pleasure of working with was their Dornier Do 26. A most beautiful aircraft- and really the worst kit I ever experienced. :)

Roland, btw, how big is it in 1/144?
16. April, 10:59
Juergen Klinglhuber
Great Build - super Roland. btw - my Mach2 experience was the Leduc RAM-jet, and it was....well, it's a cool aircraft ( ;) )

Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you Lukasz and Jürgen! I will measure -tomorrow :)

Ad Mach 2: I agree, Jürgen: a selection of highly interesting aircraft, but kits that spoil motivation to invest time and energy.Your Leduc RAM Jet is worth looking!
