Hi, Thanks for your interest in my models. I also was a plastic airliner kit modeller but i changed to big card models many years ago. Nothing to do with plastic modelling but you need a lot of experience if you want to obtain good results.

I design my models but sometimes i take parts from some card models to save time on designing but i improve the parts, complete interior of aircraft, etc. Sometimes the final result is completely different to the initial part.

Anyway, there are some good models by default you can start with: The Austrian dc-9 is a good and detailed aircraft even with no modifications. This is a very old model and is not available since many years ago but you can find soneone from time to time on ebay. Search for "Geli dc-9", "Geli Caravelle" (i modified my model from this one), Geli Fokker 50, Geli Viscount (great model in British Eagle, Austrian and Northeast liveries if you can find one...), Geli dc-3 (in Martinair livery, EXCELLENT model).

The Trident and Bac one eleven are my own designs (i´m working on them now). I enclose some low res. pics of the Trident nose and fordward fuselage sections. You can see the ZK registration but this parts are for the Trident one, not for the ZK. There will be also all other versions and many liveries.

I will try to get a little time for the Transavia Caravelle soon and i will post pics.

Thank you very much for the pointers, Jesus! I will look out for Geli models. The Trident looks astoundingly detailed and I look forward to seeing it materialise! ZK is, of course, now a historic "ship" which I occasionally visit when in Manchester...
