BOEING’s 787-800 DREAMLINER
In early 2013 I was surfing “Scalehobbist’s” web site as I have been buying all my models and supplies from them since I moves from San Jose, CA to Dolores, Colorado.U.S.A. Scalehobbyist is located in a state above New York City. My hobby shop in San Jose was about 10 miles away, whereas the nearest hobby shop in my area of Colorado was over 200 miles away.
I came across this airliner made by a company that I never heard of. It’s name is “ZVEDA” with a kit #7008 and in 1/144th scale. I had built several airline models, so this kit was nothing new for me. I thought it would be a great challenge to paint the blue stripes on its’ fuselage, so I bought the kit for around 30-40 American Dollars.
The kit parts were formed to the highest degree with next to no flashing and the fit was top of the line.
I’m showing my first segment which is the two engines and WOW, they are beautiful to say the least. I followed the building instruction and painted the parts with my Tamiya Titanium Silver paint, using my trusted “like-new” 30 year old Badger-200 airbrush.
This is my first story on “iModeler” so I hope everything goes as planned. I’ll develop Part Two soon, so thanks for looking.
