Default What happens to those discolured models

Had a bit of fun with this model as it was in a bit of a state by yellowing. And it had many parts missing already so not going to fly in anyone's collections again. With some matt paints and a bit of sand i created a derelict scene. An ex Hogan wings 747-400. This will be on show at the LGW2013 along with some other scenes i have created. The model in the foreground is a Wooster 767

Very cool! I moved a while ago and some of my Hogan models incurred some heavy damage in the move. Instead of letting them sit broken in boxes, I might do something like this! What airline was your model? LH?

Yes it was Lufthansa a model i purchased off ebay some years ago and when it arrived it was very yellow. Rather then send it back as it only cost £10 plus postage i stored it in my loft thinking one day i will clean it up. But on closer inspection it had paint damage and missing wheels. Then i was watching Channel four here in the UK and they have a boneyard sequence featuring the chennel 4 logo (how do they do that CGI i guess) . And a light bulb went on on my head and this is the result.
