  1. Classic Quantas Scheme Allan great to see lovely work

  2. Thanks David, what does the U stand for ? I kept putting it in and deleting it myself !

  3. Allen, This is really nice !, I'm guessing that even at this scale this baby should be a pretty good size model. Well done !

  4. Nicely done Allen, really like that Qantas scheme. Like Terry said even at 1/200 that baby has got to be big.

  5. Lovely Jumbo Jet, Allan!

  6. I love the Roo, Allan! I dabble in airliners and really prefer these old schemes with cheat lines over the “billboard” liveries we see today. Nice work.

  7. Striking scheme and clean looking build, which of course is a must for airliners.

  8. Nice. As Dustin Hoffman said in "Rainman", "...Qantas has never crashed..." - 🙂

  9. This is a great looking build Allan. I wish my first build after returning to the hobby looked this nice... believe me, it doesn't ! 🙂

  10. Good looking build of a nice classic!

  11. Very nice, Allan!

  12. Looks great Allan, one day I will build my B747SP in these colours. Love the old ochre cheat line scheme and what you have done with the build.

  13. Very neat work, Allan, as we've come to expect from you. You say you used Dulux? Unless it's different in Australia, Dulux is a range of paints for DIY enthusiasts, did you apply it with a roller? (Only joking, but I am curious.)

  14. Really nice finish. One of the best aircraft ever made.

  15. Very nice work Allan.
