Default Continental 757-300WL

Over the weekend I made a couple of custom models, here is the first, its a Continental 757-300WL, I used the wings from a United 757-200WL that is in the post merger colors, released last year. Will try and post more photos of the other models, which include a US Airways A321 with IAE engines, American 737-800WL in the Astro colors and a United 757-200 with no winglets and Pratt engines in the post merger colors.

DKSA321,

What manufacture make the models used for your conversion? Please post a photo of your airplane as I would like to see the variance in the standard 757-300 and the 757-300 WL.

Thanks,
Herb

It's kinda of easy just press down the wings, stay close to the the fuselage, sometimes they separate easy other times it takes a little more.
