Revell Airbus A330-302, QANTAS
This article is part of a series:
This is the 1/144 Revel A330 Airbus (LTU Boxing) which I started a couple of years ago, I just managed to finish it up. It was built out of the box with only decals changed. I used Hawkeye Models Australia decals on it to represent VH-QPD 'Port Macquarie' which I flew on back in 2017 to Hawaii.
I put off finishing it for some time due to the perceived daunting task of masking certain sections of the kit. Not sure why I was worried as when I got around to it, it was not the chore I was expecting a the paintwork turned out better than expected.
The 2007 scheme has now been superseded by the current scheme which was introduced in 2016 (Roo and QANTAS titling changed), I prefer this scheme myself.

I like this livery, too, very neat work, definitely liked.
Great job, Ray. I love it!
What is the "runway" made of? Looks great!
Not doing civil airliners, but tempted towards due to your build!
1/144 airliners are so fascinating!
Spiros, it is a base I made up from a piece is 3 feet x 4 feet of chipboard. I think I made the pavement squares a little big, I also photograph 1/72 models on it. Been thinking about doing a different version on the other side specifically for 1/144 models

Thanks Ray @rays!
That is one flash looking airliner. I have fond memories of flying many thousands of miles in the care of the flying kangaroo.
Outstanding work on this.
The paint job is very well executed. At that scale I wouldn't expect it to look so smooth. My compliments! Wish I had flown Airbus instead of those old 747s on my 14 hour trips from Los Angeles to Sydney!
Nice work, Ray. I agree, the ‘07 livery is better as the roo still looks like a roo!
Nicely done Ray, looks good in that livery, I'm still hoping for a 330 in 1/72 !
