Hi,

Lufthansa 737-300 D-ABWH

Here I did only slight modifications. First I decided to remove the lufthansa.com, so that this model represents it's aircraft between 1998 and 2002 or in 2008.



Then I removed the Star Alliance Logo do presentation of the aircraft in 1994.

Lufthansa A300-600 D-AIAX

On this model I only removed the Star Alliance Logo, because this does not fit to the time when "Express" were painted onto some aircrafts.





The scratches in the cockpit windows and the Lufthansa-Logo had been already on the model, it was not from my modification work

I made also another custom Lufthansa 737-500 with their eye-brow windows.
The Lufthansa 737s could be seen with these windows until 2010.

Air One 737-400 EI-COH

There was a partnership between AirOne and Lufthansa from 2000 to 2009, where many flights of AirOne became code shared with Lufthansa.



Under good lighting conditions You can see the circle of removed Lufthansa Logo even on the model like it can be seen on the real aeroplane too ;-)

Got to admit I still far prefer the classic original Lufty scheme with the cheat-line.

… Lufthansa got the first "only freight" variant of the 747 in the early 70ties. It was a -200F or 747F with P&W engines. She was put into Service in 1972 and left Lufthansa in 1978.

For D-ABVE Soccer Nose, Did you buy the Netmodels 1:400, or did you make it yourself? Mine is also custom made. Where did you get your decals from and where did you find the original pictures to print onto the decal. I am in the process of making "Berlin 2000" on D-ABVA, and "The First real internet aboard" on D-ABTF

Hi,

yes, the "VE" "2006 World Cup Soccer Nose" is the one from Netmodels. I used decals from "shop DRAW decals". You net to select 1:400 rescaled decals from their website and so on. I know "Berlin 2000" decals for a 747-400 are available with one of the 1/200 747-400 Lufthansa kits. Recently I bought some decal paper for laser printer, but I still have no experience with custom decals.

Jan

Thanks for the reply. So the "VE" isn't custom made? You bought that from Netmodels? (Just to clairfy)
