My custom making years
I have been making custom aircraft models, as a hobby,for the last 10+ years and during this time I have created around 86 models in 35 different airline liveries, 15 different airframes, and in 3 scales in 3 scales(5 in 1/500, 61 in 1/400 and 19 in 1/200). Many of my first productions where made for forum members.
My main focus has been on EasyJet which has resulted in 26 different examples in all 3 scales. Of the 86 I have 3 particular favourites which reached my level of near complete satisfaction in terms of accuracy and finish. I would also add a 1/18 scale racing touring car which provided me with new challenge.
I have created all the decals required to complete these models with one exception when I purchased a DrawDecal sheet to complete my first 1/200 scale EasyJet in the latest colour scheme. Eventually I managed to work out how to replicate that scheme on my steam powered computer. My Achilles heal when it comes to decals is that my cheap and cheerful inkjet printer is unable to print anything that is white.
Not to sure how many more I will make as time has taken its toll on my eyesight, i now need to wear 2 pairs of glasses at the same time to do the fine detail.
