Default EasyJet Europcar 1/200 scale

OE-LQY completes the trio of Europcar registrations and is named in memory of “Keri Emerton” (a cabin crew member for many years but sadly died of cancer at the age of 38 in 2013)
The donor model was a Herpa SWISS and was easy to dismantle. This made decal application fairly straight forward. Creating the decals took many hours in order to achieve accuracy.

I thought I’d add how the decals where created.

I must say, that may be the nicest gesture to date, I have seen in our hobby. Well done.

The name on the side below the cockpit window is Keri Emerton.

Fantastic work sir. Even the cockpit frames look better than the original.

Hi,
I have come across your post today,
I’m Keri Emerton’s sister and I love the model you have made, I was wondering if you would be able to make another couple one for my dad and one for her son,
I would obviously pay for the models.
It would be great to hear from you.
Many thanks
Kate.

Greetings Kate
I did make a prototype of the model which I put up for sale a couple of months ago. Open this link to view it. It is still available should you be interested.
https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...-europcar.html

I also made the other EasyJet that carried Keri’s name G-EZDR in the smaller scale of 1/400.
Also Keri’s name was on the old EasyJet livery which I can also replicate.

I will send you a PM (private message) regarding getting another one.
Regards
Mike
