Lovely grime. :) Is that perhaps pigments?
26. June, 13:48
Chris T. An
Yes, it is a mix of pigments and dry brushing. I know it would have been better to make a real entry into the earth's atmosphere for the grime effects, but I had no booster rockets to get up into space. ;)

Thank you all :) ! I will finish it.. there are some setbacks during the build at the moment so this project is on hold for a while.

Thats big, but an even bigger decal challenge! It will be a great display when completed.
19. June, 18:01
Dick
@Alec: Thanks :) !

@Nathan: Yes that's true.. I've never applied so many decals on 1 model. And to think that I've removed them all again 3 months ago...
I bought better and more realistic decals for the Shuttle. It will look much better after that :)
But this project is on hold at the moment, I want to build the Antonov first.

What kit is the 747 from?
19. June, 21:52
Dick
@Skywalker:
It is an old Skyland desktop model. I'm always on the hunt for old damaged Skyland models, because I like to give them an 'overhaul'. Just as my 1:72 Skyland Qantas Boeing 747-100..

I still have 2 747's, 2 DC-10's and 2 A-310's to repair.. But I think I don't have enough time (and space ;)) for that I think...

Maybe someone is wondering about the Shuttle name "Kitty Hawk". That is true. Bevore "Enterprise" became the name, it was planned as "Kitty Hawk". A lot of Treckies took care about to change the name to "Enterprise" ;) Cool story and definitely true. I was smiling, when I saw the name on the decal shield.

I want to build this box but I can't find any Decals.
The decals that came with the box are to bad damaged to use.
Can anyone help me?

Hi,

The compative Revell-kit (without boosters & tank) is still on sale at Revell. So you can contact "Department X" at Revell to ask for a decal-sheet as spare part.

I'm looking for these to.
Apparently the company that made these does no longer exist.

Does this Shuttle have engraved panel lines or raised ones?

Check the pictures in the reviews - engraved

You sure?
It looks like raised ones if you look at the pictures.

This is the old Revell USA kit - the panel lines are raised. The confusion comes from the original boxing which had a sticker that said "Fully Engraved Tile Detail." This didn't mean it had engraved lines, just that the tiles were represented at all, as they were completely missing from the competitive Monogram kit that came out at the same time. I have seen a build of this kit where the modeller re-scribed all the tiles, that must have taken him forever!

In case the answer is, "Scalemates is not a shop." or "Cutting Edge is not in business any more." the next question is "Then where and how do i find/get another set of decals for my 1/72 Revell shuttle?"

Curious dual identity on my example of this kit - instructions and boxart are for 09172-1 and copyright message on side of box is 1978, however the box end is marked 10170-5

Monogram tooling, different from other Revell kits.
2. November 2012, 15:45
Glenn .
Yes Lukas the two kits are different toolings. The revell one has a bit more detail and better payload options.
17. February 2013, 07:03
uncle chop chop
what does tooling mean?? is that like the quality of the kit??
17. February 2013, 09:01
Glenn .
Tooling means the die used to make the plastic kit. A large solid block of steel or sometimes copper that is machined using a CNC computer controlled milling machine. The die is made from two or more parts and is used to inject the polystrene plastic into to form the model kit! In this case two total different dies have been made and share nothing in common with the kit parts. The tooling can cost lots! eg $40,000 + so this why not many complete new kits come out each year!

nice job! it looks brand new. I going to weather to hell outta mine maybe weather it with grey and black pastles or ash! for that re-entry look!

You could try to reproduce re-entry marks with the help of a blast furnace or a blowtorch :D ;)

Now Burkhard i don't want to over do the weathering too much!!! :O
19. January 2013, 11:55

It looks a bit cleaner on the pictures. In reality it looks more weathered. But I didn't want to overdo it, so I held back a little. But I'm looking forward to see your approach.

Hi Matt, engraved or raised panel lines on this one ?
20. June 2012, 20:53
Augie
I'll give good odds its the original molds.. so raised IIRC
20. June 2012, 21:16
Matt Wohlford
The shuttle is the original Monogram shuttle, so raised panel lines. The SRBs and ET do not have any "panel lines" per say, but it has some nice lifted details.
