My favorite jet is the B727. That plane was, what got me started collecting some 1:200 jets.
It's an Inflight 200 and well detailed. Unfortunately, the whole body is covered with some stains, as if it wasn't polished before being sealed with the gloss cote.
Looks like fingerprints - you can spot them on the underside behind the nose towards the wings...
Hello, I agree with you--the Boeing 727 is great. As a kid, I flew on these a lot. I finally stopped fearing all the flap activity on the wings, once I got older and wiser(?) I've had the same issues with the "Astrojet" polished finish (and most other polished liveries, too). I now stay away from any polished finish, as I am too finicky, and the fingerprints irritate to no end!
Some very nice pictures. Like the effort, you put in them.
But on the other hand, they merciless show the big flaws and issues of Inflight's 727 mould.
These king-size wheels, wrong-shaped nose section, and the heavy seams are real deal breakers.
The most bothersome botch was made with the tires. I can live with silver painted wings etc. (not nice, but apparently not doable) but this all-terrain wheel set sucks. Furthermore, it seems they used them on the upcoming 747SP, too.
Come on - how hard is it to get the wheel diameter right? It's not off by a few scale inches, it's humungous...
Regarding the pictures:
No, no merges. One picture. Small aperture and long exposure make a nice depth of field.
Interesting. I see we both use Canon EOS with an APS-C sized sensor, only tried model photografie once but the result wasn't to my liking. I probably should have choosen an even smaller apperture than I did, will give it a try at the smallest next time.
