Default Korean Airlines Boeing 747 OC

Hi guys,

hope you are keeping safe.

Here is my latest custom: A Korean Air Lines Boeing 747 in OC in 1/200. Flew on such a plane long, long time ago.

Donor was a Hogan "City of Everett" (allowed me to keep the silver belly), decals came from Classic-Airlines.com. They were really great, however a bit thin, so you needed to get it right the first time . Also added coroguard (from Liveries Unlimited). Wished it was more "silvery", though.

I know there is the Inflight version of this as well, however do not like the wing gap.

Hope you enjoy the model as I do.

Markus

This is awesome! Great work. I like how some of the shades are in various positions of open/close. And like you, I don't much care for IF200s wing gap. Sadly, they don't seem to want to revise their mould from the old cradle design.

Great model nicely made.

Hogan models are very convenient to use as donors, with the wings removed you have an unrestricted access to the fuselage making application of the decals easier.

Very nice addition to your Collection.

Hi guys,

thanks for your kind words! It is much appreciated.

@B-KPA: I find with all customs that the actual work (painting, decalling) is usually pretty short (stretches of 5 to 15 minutes) and then you need to wait for things to dry. That usually fits nicely with my scheduled Zoom calls :-).

For this model I spent around one hour removing the cheatline of the original, another hour or so on masking and painting (with breaks to let paint dry) and then 1 to 2 hours decalling.

Glad you'all like it.

Markus
