My father was a flight mech on these in Nam and back here in the First Heli. Awesome copters. 🙂

Nice, this camo reminds me the latest&greatest refit of our local Navy W-3 SAR helos. Thanks for WiP pics, now I'm even more afraid to start mine 😄

Tricky, seeing all those bolt heads. I have this Bell 212 kit in 1:72 and I really have to sand off the boltheads because I have to add filler into the seams (and sand flush).

Excellent! 👍 👍 (the livery that you didn't use from the Magna kit might give you a clue on why I was so interested in this conversion😉 Thanks for posting these and again congrats!

Ray Seppala
Thanks Alex, this was for a club group build. QANTAS is 100 years old this year and we are(?) having a display at our comp in November (if it goes ahead that is). I noticed the Greek airline decals and Scottish ones as well, I didn't know so many airlines used these after the war.
24. April 2020, 04:56
Alex K
Well, yes, "ELLAS - Hellenic Airlines" was founded with the help of -precisely- Scottish, using a number of their Dakotas and a couple of Liberators. There were other operators too, worldwide, from France to Alaska... before and after. It is so nice seeing one of those civilian Liberators being built - and this is a marvelous and original contribution of yours to the QANTAS group build! Once again, congrats!

Ray, you are the master of transfrmation! At first I thought A340. Then I looked at the windscreen and said, wait a minute! Boeing! But Boeing what? I love it! And not that unplausible. Very nice finish. Are you going to patent it before Boeing does? Might fund your retirement account, or at least keep the beer flowing! 😉 [BTW, I am always curious to see what kits you have going on in the background!]

How do you apply the long window decals on airliners? Do you cut them into sections and apply them that way?
20. May 2020, 12:53
Ray Seppala
Cheers guys, @Dutch, it seems there are others who do build spotting in my build photos. I do have too many on the go and cycle through them as I get bored with the current builds :) @Ben M, I used an aftermarket decals set for the windows, Flying Colours sheet for a Singapore Airlines B777-300, the windows come in short sections, which are divided up by the cabin doors. The trick is to keep all the sections of window lines and door decals aligned down the length of the fuselage. For sheet that have longer strips of windows I cut them up to make them more manageable, usually 3 - 4 inch lengths.

Thank you for the tip Ray. I have been building a dirigible and it had some loooong decals which inevitably broke into pieces while I tried to apply them. So I just applied one broken piece after another, and fortunately the pieces that were too damaged were simple enough to repair with a paint pen and a straightedge on the model. It got me thinking how people did airliner decal windows because I have a 1:72 DC-9 I want to build soon. I'll just chop them up at good breaking points and carefully align them like you do. I appreciate you taking the time to help me out!

Great job Ray... have you had a go at making a RAAF Lincoln? I have the Alley Cat and Red Roo conversion sets, and I'm wondering how hard the conversion is... they look pretty good in the box.
1. July 2020, 03:33
Ray Seppala
Thanks guys, @Mark I have the same conversion sets. It is not on the radar for a while, when I get into the Strike SQN groove I'll do the Lincoln, Canberra, F-111 and Super Hornet. I don't think the Lincoln conversion will be too difficult. If I can more of less scratch build a Falcon 900 then a conversion set with all the parts supplied should be a walk in the park. Meanwhile I will be trying to finish up the P-8 shortly.
