1/72 Airways Vac form VC10 (British United Airways)
January 24, 2017 in Aviation
Finished this model at the end of last year 2016, took me at least one and half years to build, lots of scratch building including redoing the vertical tail, altering the fuselage where the wings are located as the step underneath on the original vac form was not as pronounced as it should be, the engines were re-worked and some detail added such as vents and grills, it has a complete cockpit interior, although not shown in these photos, but trust me its all there. I had a go at some 3D printing, and as I was able to get close to the real aircraft and was able to take measurments of the wheels and transfer these to the 3D drawings which were then printed off.
The model was primed and finished using Tamiya acrylics, all the text such as the logo and BRITISH UNITED AIRWAYS was drawn using Illustrator 10 and then cut out using my Cameo Silloutte cutter, I was then able to spray the text black.
The model was then finished with some light weathering on the panel lines, which I must add were all re-scribed, the model was then finished off with a couple of coats of gloss to seal every thing in
Anyway I hope you like
