Default Custom DELTA 777 and 757 Salt Lake City Pair Finished!

Hi Guys,

Well i decided at this stage the model companies weren't going to make these pair so i decided to do them myself! Finished them last night.

They are a pair of Flight miniatures model fuselages with hogan wings and undercarriages and they look fantastic finished off in a high gloss finish.

The 757 is a hard model to get a hold of.

As per usual ive done the usual additions to these models including:
  • Full re -decaling of all windows/doors/ engine decals
  • Addition of front nose gear
  • Painted undercarriage with metal chrome paint.
  • Chrome underside of fuselage has been completed as well.
  • Also Antennas have been added.
  • Finished in a Full high gloss UV protectant finish.
  • Weight added to front to not allow nose to rise.
Enjoy the photos! PM me or email [email protected] if you got any Questions! Thanks again to Kai for his little tutorial on how to convert these FM models.

Pretty impressive work mate! I'd love a diecast version of the 777, wishful thinking of course, but you never know!

Hey man, super job but constructive criticism... maybe it's just the photos but the pax windows on the 757 look a little high?

Yeah couldn't be avoided as i had to cover the windows with the new decals.... also i think the camera angle isn't the best on some of these shots.

"May we have the attention of GJ please" to improve their QC issues, before launching these new models

You're lost? This is not the thread to complain about GJ QC issues. Write them a letter if you will. Thanks!

I was teasing you, by adding to your sentence I barely know anything about GJ Jets, just that there are issues with the models when received, as indicated here on the forums
