1:144 F-Rsin CV990 Coronado - Finished

Hot on the heels of the Vanguard is another enigmatic but wholly unsuccessful airliner. F-RSIN CV-990. Instead of the good looking but fairly dull kit decals, I've a got Two-Six set to finish the model in the last colours of Spantax.

Hopefully get a start soon.

A bit of progress. Not many parts to this kit so I thought it woud go together reasonably well. It certainly is a limited run kit and the fit needs a lot of fettling. One problem I did have was all my own making. I put plasticine and lead in the nose, glued the fuselage together, sanded down the joints then discovered my nose-weight had broken loose, rattling around inside. Doh... I drilled a hole in the bottom of the fuselage and poured in some super-glue. It seems to have worked so far.

More tomorrow hopefully.

Certainly not a kit I would have thought of, very interesting, good luck.

Coming along nicely. Lots of filler but looks OK so far. The landing gear looks very weak but we'll see.

Small update

Grey painted. I took the tailplanes off to make decal applcation easier.

Now complete. Not my best - Quite a difficult build in this scale. Tiny wheels and iffy fit. Nice decals although being laser printed slightly put me off. They needed trimmed very close to each design. Next build will be a modern easy build good fit kit.

Neat looking aircraft Derek.. I don't think I have ever seen one of those before, it looks like a smaller DC-8. Good looking build too.
