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

What scale is this? Personally, I say just guess on this one. No one will be the wiser really.

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

:cheers:

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:
