Default The Russians are coming...(sort of)

...BA Golden Khokhloma (Russia) World Tails at least.

I have had the Herpa 757 for ages, but just received a set of custom V1 decals for G-XMAN, the 737-300. So here is the latest custom, along with her Russian sister.

The only other plane to carry this scheme was a 767-300. I have the decals ready to go as soon as I can get my hands on a donor model.

Hope you like the latest addition to my BA Utopia fleet.

Nice finish again John.
Just checked the V1 website because I was curious what BA decals they have made so far. I assume a lot of them have been made for you.
Looking at their KLM activity, not much there (yet).

Thanks. The Russia tail 737 decal order was my first custom request for V1 decals, but I have used a bunch of others. I believe that member JagT747 was the instigator of some of the other decal sets there, particularly the Dreamflight 747 sets.

The donor model for the 767 version of the same tail arrived... so here she is.

Donor by JC Wings, decals from V1, paint smudges (to be cleaned up) by me.

These were the only 3 types to carry the "Russia" tail, so I can now declare this portion of my collection complete!
