Not the most popular of GBs as it's turning out but undaunted, another pair. Firstly the Minicraft Lockheed Constellation. Rather unfortunate decal placement though.

At the same time, a Minicraft Boeing 707-436. I'll finish it in one of the BA markings.

Good to see you keeping up the good work Derek!

I should be in soon with another Minicraft kit in the shape of a KC-135E!

nice selection, looking forward to those. I do wish minicraft would not mold the cockpit area separately as they are a pain to fill and sand, has put me off their kits a bit.

The great thing about these airliner kits is that they come together very quickly.

I'm going to use a decal for the 707 flight deck windows so I'll sand smooth the join.

First coats of paint. The silver needs a bit of work.

Just about ready for decals.

Should have taken my own advice about masking tape. Lots of paint to touch up.

Now finished. Finished with a brush and a mix of Revell and Xtracrylix acrylic paint.

Definitely going to choose something easier next time.
