Hi,
Here is that beginning of a 1/72 (authentic airliners) B727-200. She will sport some PSA (pink) livery decals.

Love the PSA aircraft with a smile. Looking forward to the result.

Love PSA,and of course Brad's work is stunning. Just a heads up,maybe skip N533PS for the reg. IMO.

Re: Psa b727-200
 
Forgot to mention,one day I was going to ask Brad if he would consider doing a build for me? It was going to be a PSA B727,only the orange livery. Really look forward to seeing this one finished. The smiling birds that once ruled Lindbergh Field.

Some dry fitting of the wings and tail section.

That Authentic Airliners Boeing 727 is without a doubt by far the most accurate B727
kit ever produced.
I would love one but can't afford one now.

If one of the plastic kit makers were to produce an equivalent 1/72 B727 it would
be absolutel sensational !!! A HUGE seller.

Brad,when your PSA B727 is complete it will be mind blowing awesome !

So Brad by my calculations a 1/72nd 727-200 would be just over 2-feet long is that right? That's HUGE! :envy:

WOW how much does she weigh? It's a solid resin kit correct? I'm guessing a half pound or more? :rolleyes:

I recall Kurt mentioning in a forum that it was somewhere around 2-3 pounds, IIRC.

Greetings from Taiwan on the 4th and so far this 27 looks good and I remember my one and only PSA was an MD 80 with ATP decals. I've got to get a hold of Clint and find out if he has anymore of those decals. Will be home soon and will send you out what we discussed before I head off to Russia for 2 weeks. Wishing everyone else in here a happy 4th.regards al. Oh yeah good luck with the cheat line:)

Can you imagine if Brad build a B727-200 1:100 in the Delta widget colours! :p

I already get goose bumps just thinking about it.. :o

Brad can build anything. I got a quote from him some time ago on a build,very reasonable. Not even close to what I would expect to pay for that much work. They truly are a scaled down version of the real thing.

I can testify to that fact and a cool guy to boot! :D

I must say Mr. Shin, that one of the only threads I view on DAC (other than new or future releases) are those dealing with your work. Your ability to recreate in miniature these highly accurate replicas is phenominal. Seeing you go from the basic kit to the final product is one of the very few things that make this site worth looking at.

I only wish I had your talent (but sadly I'm not alone - few peolpe do!)

AIR FRANCE 340 07-07-2015 04:12 AM

Re: Psa b727-200
 
Congratulations Brad.

The B 727 is a great choice to illustrate what triple slotted flaps are.
Its wing with all the leading and trailing edge devices deployed is simply fantastic.
So much lift with a wing which is rather small when everything is retracted …
This wing was designed for speed and at the same time, it was able to produce the lift necessary at a reasonable approach speed.

I have great memories of the B 727 and your model is going to be exceptional.

Jean Pierre.

Re: Psa b727-200
 
I'm back and those wings are looking good. The standing joke about the 27 was any landing was a controlled crash. I'm sending out the package on Monday since I'll be headed to Russia towards the end of the week.

Surinam Air 747 07-11-2015 12:02 PM

Re: Psa b727-200
 
I'm personally still astonished on how this fella scratch builds the flaps & stats, I mean I have never tried it but I'm sure it could take a lot of trail & error on my part to accomplish something like this...

I myself build 1:200 Hasegawa kits before but what Brad does is more like a master piece, the Picasso of aircraft model making.. :eek:

I could not leave a comment until now because I was simply awestruck!! :eek:

Can you imagine if someone so talented as Mr. Brad would work for IF 200 or JC wings, man then it would be a pleasure to purchase models from these companies knowing that you would always get a quality model in your hands... :D

Hi Surinam Air 747,

You got that right the ole 70's and golden age of aviation. I missed my Lockheed L-1011. I flew on CX when it was just delivered to the CX.

Waiting on the decals to arrive from the artist. Then I will finish the fuselage and connect all the dots...
