You could always get a decal for it. Or you could get some white paint and just paint it on very carefuly.

very easily actually. white decals as billay said, Flying Colors Decals Alitalia 777-200 has a good set of them but it will set you back $10USD. it comes with 4 of the swirls, so you can technically build an Alitalia 777 and have 2 left over for whatever project you want

or you can take a toothpick and paint with the tip of that dipping it in white paint.

here is the Flying colors alitalia decals sheet, you can see the swirls under the tail decals

All this is starting to motivate me to build some commercial airliners although I can't get all the amazing attention to detail you guys get even with the very best planning and intentions.

thanks for inspiring!

Is it a HG model ? if so, you can have access to the fanblades easy by inserting your index finger inside trough the intake lip, your thumb finger holding firmly on the cowling, then retract the index finger towards your palm, and that intake should come off very easy, it's not glued, it's just sitting tight on the engine, afterwards flip the engine upside down, and the fanblade should just slide off. Now if it turns out it's not a Hogan afterall, please disregard this comment. Hope this helps.

Kai,

I am doing baby steps to start.

I am working on a Hasegawa 1/400 B777-300 in the ANA ribbon livery but an sorely tempted to convert it to a QF fantasy.
This is some of the little mini-jet range they produced.
Also have a couple of their 744s and a DC-10.
Will put up pics soon.

Is the intent of the spiral to show that the fan is turning, or is it to show the direction it's turning? Kinda hard to miss an engine that's spooling up, I would think...
