Hello everyone!

I`m about to finish my tiny model, however, I still lack info (photos) on the following:

#1 Do NWS and BUC Test buttons have black panels around them?
#2 Are those 3 black things on the secure voice panel dials or buttons?

Photos would be the best help (block1 preferably) but any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Regards

Paul

It`s 1\12. I guess you`re right. After months of super detailing I probably exaggerate a little bit. :roll:

Oh, this is the Esci/Ertl kit innit? Yeah, I wouldn't even fret over it, just paint it up and be done! ;)

Actually it`s Italeri...I`m working on the rudder pedals so it`ll take some time (short time preferably :) )

The Taleri kit is the Esci. They bought many of their molds when they went out of business. Revell bought most of the rest.

Didn`t know. It`s a shame they (Italeri) are unable to make it more popular in Europe. It`s a great kit.

Well, the problem with Italeri kits....is that they're Italeri kits :lol:
They do have a few gems though, some of their own making. But a lot of their current stuff are old Esci molds, which for the most part are exquisite despite their age. Esci had a good thing going, it's a shame they went under.

I think the FCNP is on the wrong side...Not sure exactly when it was moved (guessing w/ block 10 or late block 5). Gums would know best.

It is supposed to be block 1 so it`s all right. If you find any discrepancies let me know.

I don`t want to reveal the project until it`s done. It`s almost finished (except for the throttle, the stick, some wiring and hoses...).

Maybe some teasers... :roll:
