Gorgeous model of a fantastic airline with a sexy scheme. The current scheme is nice but this scheme is the simply the best.
Icelandair is one of those airlines completely forgotten in 1/200.

This is very nice, which decal brand is this? I like the cockpitwindows very much... much better than any 757 windshield decals I've seen so far.

I understand, thanks for your answer though, my ongoing search for some decent 757 windshield decals will then just continue…

(This search have lasted some 3-4 years already)

Thanks Benny79, but no, they are not the same am I afraid (I have ordered these from Ben (V1 decals) some years ago, and they have the same shape as all the other 757 windshield decals). And IMHO these don´t fit the Gemini/JC Wings 757 perfectly… But yours on the Icelandair seems for the first time a bit different, much better..

@D-AIHB

you can watch the other 757 on my condor threat.

@Benny79,
many thanks again, and the Condor 757´s is a good example of what I mean, especially easy to see at D-ABNM. It wears the standard 757 windshield decals, exactly the same ones you get from V1, Drawdecal and all the others… But your Icelandair decals, they seem different, more like Gemini´s original tampo printing, a much better and right shape IMHO

The Condors look very nice though, great work!

@D-AIHB
you are right.its the original JC wings windshield.I watched the plane again.I build more than 50 customs last and this year.now I can remember.I tried to integrate the original windshield in the fdecal strips.thats the result.
the fuselage of the condor is completly new painted white so I have to use a decal windshield

@Benny79,
thanks for the info though, I had a sneaking feeling that it might was the case.

Hope I like it? It looks fantastic. I would love to have one. I have the Herpa 200 version in the current livery from several years ago. It seems to be a really sought after model. I can only hope Herpa eventually produces the stunning aurora borealis B757 in 200 scale.

Excellent job! I'll never forget the first and only time I saw this airplane and livery at KMCO in January of 1991. Cheat line, color, logo; very classy and timeless.

did you clear coat the model so the decals won't get removed?
