Default 1/72 scale British Airways Hybrid Negus colours

Something I had been working on for quite awhile. It was mixed up in controversy with someone that I was asking to do for me. Well I decided to go ahead and do it myself. Just completed the refinish of a 1/72 scale former British Airways Boeing 747-148, G-BDPZ, a familiar leased -100 from Aer Lingus in the 1970s. She was registered EI-ASJ with the Irish carrier. BA leased her from 1975-1980 with a 6 month sublease to British Caledonian in late 1978 to mid 1979, and finished out her 5 year lease in mid 1980, returning to the carrier in that year. She acquired the nickname Paddy-Zulu using the last 2 letters in her registration. She also had a starring role in the 1986 Taylor Hackford film “White Nights” starring Gregory Hines, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Helen Mirren, and of course Paddy-Zulu. The model was originally a BA 747-100 in the Negus colours. But it was in pretty rough shape when I acquired it from an eBay auction. Model is by Space Models UK. Some pics were pulled from google for content and at the bottom, how it originally looked. Enjoy

Nice custom. So much more satisfaction , and frustration, if you do these yourself.

Love it!
The original probably would have something to do with my 1/72 Negus L-1011 from Space Models.

That’s stunning work! First time I’ve ever seen a display model such as that in the BA ‘hybrid’ livery. I was just sitting here imagining a similar model in the old Aer Lingus delivery colours. Again, well done with your model.

Neil.
