I'm now trying to custom change a model of mine: Austrian Airlines A340-200 model with OG wheels and OC.
Here is a link to the donor model:
My problems are:
1. The bottom grey colouring.
2. Problematic RED plastic tail.
3. Target livery.
As for the bottom, I'll try to use it as an advantage, since I wont be needed to color it by airbrush.
The plastic tail is now being painted by normal plastic spray, which would hopefully decrease its red'ness.
I've already bought some decal papers and I'm trying to get acrilic spray to cover it.
Now, I need to find out which model I'm customing to.
I was thinking about the airlines using A340-200/300 these days:
Royal Jordanian (too hard to make-especially for new customer), TAP (The grey lower fuselage is hardening this livery) and Aerolineas Argentinas (I'm not sure I wish to have this airline, not that popular).
I'm attaching some pictures of the cover I've made for the model while I'm trying to paint its tail only.
Do you have any ideas or tips for a beginner customer like me?
Or, so you have any ideas of how to make decals or which airlines to choose?
