Default Custom 1/200 Delta 717-200

Just finished my Delta 717-200, and am pretty happy with the result. Donor aircraft was a JCWings JetStar 717 and decals from DrawDecal.com. Last picture is with my Gemini200 MD-90.

Wow, very nice job.

I've been to the US this summer and I've taken both Delta's MD-88 and 717-200 (planes you rarely see in Europe).

I now own the MD88 and I would love to have a 717 like yours.

Very nicely done! With the release of the Gemini Hawaiian 717, I'd bet the Delta is next.

Wonderful job, looks much better than most company releases! Are you willing to elaborate a bit on the finishing process (which paint you used, clear coat at the end etc.) or is this information classified?

Best,
Holger

Absolutely unclassified. So I gently used paint thinner to remove the old livery, while keeping the details on like Windows, cockpit, and cargo doors. For paint, I used Testors enamel "Blue Angle Blue" and mixed it with black until I got the deep dark blue I needed. Then I used my very generic airbrush to paint the belly and the tail. For the belly, I used painters tape and traced out the pattern. Any roughness to the edges was smoothed out by gently scraping with my exacto knife.

After paint was dry and decals were on, just used Testors spray on clearcoat on the fuselage before reattaching wings and horizontal tail.

That is my curse. It happened when I made my EMB-120, and after this month, with my Frontier A321. 100% they will release a Delta 717 in the next couple months! But I'm still glad I made it.

Thank you. It was definitely one of my better custom jobs.

You have more control over a custom. Lately Gemini has been having troubles with getting colors right and other small details so this could turn out to be alright for you.
