This kit indeed the worst kit I have ever bought in my 15 years of hobby. Declas are completely useless, everything is out of scale, horrible fit and so on. can't exaggerate enough how bad this kit is.

2. February 2015, 19:14

Hot water, tap temperature is usually enough, adjust shape and cool with cold water. I have had success a few time doing this
3. February 2015, 08:59
David Silva
Thanks, I've let it rest like that for 48h after giving it a little heat with an hair dryer. When I arrive home if it's still bent I will try your way
3. February 2015, 14:41
Bill Spargo
Further to Rays' comments, having hot water treated the fuselage a few times to improve alignment, then tape the fuselage halves together to allow both halves to align to some degree. Take your time it may require a few hot dips to allow the plastic reshape. It most likely the kit was left in a hot place and warped because of the heat.

Great one Dutch. I built this kit years ago, construction was good overall. I preferred to sand off all the rivets and panel lines and engrave the necessary ones. Great colour scheme your doing, be careful of the aged decals they dont crack when put in water, perhaps a clear coat over the top first. I prefer to use after market decals for the windowshaving filled in the indented window, cockpit needed plastic card at the back then filled with putty. Kit needs some nose weight, I add it to both sides to so it is even. On my A330 fuselage I added the weight to the right half only, now it always rolls over to the right, pane in the butt. My 727 is in my album.

Bill, thanks for the tips. I have always wanted to do this c/s. I had two sets of decals hoping to do a Revell DC-8-61, but sold the collection during some hard times. This is my chance at redemption. Love the turquois blue fuselage & tail, back when airlines color schemes were distinguishable! I'll do this one when I get all 7 or 8 B727s on the bench and build them production line style. It makes it easier on the painting and assembly to do several sets of sub-assemblies at the same time. R/ Dutch

Bill Spargo
Dutch, it's your birthday. I have a DC-8-61 I'll send to you. Email me katalina@iprimus.com.au. I have started the kit, I'll tell more in my email to you. What colour scheme were thinking of?

I have thought about that with a military blend. Plenty of former RAAF aircraft go onto serve with other air arms. Did you know that a third of the current USAF E-8 fleet are ex QANTAS B707s. When I build my E-8 in 1/72 it will be one of those ex QANTAS jets. Though with an Airliner it will change hands more often. Your idea with a civil subject will give you a lot more scope though. Now you have me thinking!
25. February 2014, 21:00
Dutch
Very interesting. Yes I knew about the pedigree of the J-STARS aircraft. Three of the former Canadian CC-137s in there as well. I had never thought about building the life cycle of military aircraft. I am just about finished loading my completed project (~90% listed) and I focused on building as many c/s and operators of the F-104 and F-4 as I could fit on my bookshelves, back in the day. I parked them wingtip-to-wingtip and nose-to-tail MASDC/AMARC fashion. What's interesting about 727-77C msn 20370 is that it missed being delivered in the previous red/white/blue ANSETT c/s by several months. I have built VH-RME in the previous ANSETT c/s using the MS decals. I thought to change the reg from "E" to "T", but then it would be a "Whiffie."

I plan to start mine soon, the kit has its issues but the major one is the nose. I have a spare Airfix E-3 kit that was given to me part started that I will use the nose section from for starters
2. September 2013, 22:07
Günther Debiscop
L1011 molds, you're talking about Revell right? These got lost wehn the ship sunk when returning from Brazil to the US.

Revell also destroyed a mold when creating the P-3. They changed so much on the original Electra mold, that they can't reproduce the Electra anymore :( But the good news is that they learned (a lot ?) of their mistake.

I brought one of these when it was first released but sold it later. Very nice tooling, reminded me of Heller B707 kit as far as detail (panel lines etc) with nice resin wheels and engines. I wonder what happened to this tooling? Must have cost heaps to tool a kit this size? Why it hasn't been re-released by someone else? Poor tooling is sitting around in a warehouse somewhere collecting dust!
