Default Re: Delta DC-8-71 1/144 scale.

Distinctive weathering of the DC-8
There is an actuator in the low-speed ailerons that causes a lot of blow-by on the inboard surfaces...

Other than a few streaks from the access panels, the upper surface of the wing stays fairly clean.

The bottom of the wings and fuselage is another story. I still had to throttle back. Didn't want to do to much in such a small scale.

All that's left is the blade antennas and it's done.

Wrapping it up! Just a few tweaks and it's done!
Working on the base. Sheet Styrene piece.

Looked at some picks on the net of large airports to give me an idea of direction in patterns and color.

pressed Plywood base, sanded, filled, sanded, primed, sanded again, repeat, then painted RED

Few more details added to the bases surface. It's pretty much finished. A few tweaks on the jet, i.e. polish the fuselage, and dull coat the anti-glare panel under the cockpit windows. will call it done as well.





Hope it measures up at nationals.
Tracy

Well if I may be so bold as to say it...fuck da nationals, it measures up righteously right here!
I'm no airliner fan by any means but that's a peach
