Default Air Pacific/Fiji Airways fleet

Hey all, thought I'd share some pictures of my Air Pacific fleet.
Please note: DQ-FJE (Aeroclassics) nosegear was damaged whilst being shipped to me (I suspect the seller had previously glued it back on) I've had it for around 5 years but it seems like a very hard task to glue it back on due to how small the breakage is, I have tried but it just fell off again, any suggestions? Should I ask for a replacement nose gear? (Happy to pay for it as this model cost me quite a bit.)
I bought DQ-FJL broken with the missing right winglet on eBay for a very good price.

Andrew, could we request these models please?

The rainbow scheme with the swordfish on the tail is quite striking.

I believe they had some 737s (200s?) in these colours too.

I have successfully fixed breakage exactly like that using two-part epoxy. Get the quick-set (1 minute) version, not the 5 minute version. It's still not super easy, tweezers to hold it while it sets will help. Your hand will probably cramp up but once it starts setting you can tweak it as it dries to get it in exactly the right spot. This is the kind of situation where super glue fails - it's too quick setting and then not strong enough to hold.

Amazing! I never got to see them in real life but absolutely loved the Air Pacific livery that's on the B747-200 and DC10's. Great livery.

Thanks for that! Do you think this will suffice? https://www.bunnings.com.au/selleys-...esive_p1231000
Can't seem to find a 1 minute setting one.

Yeah that's probably pretty much the same stuff.
