Hi All,

This was a fun build I did as part of a group build on another forum. Something a bit different for me as it's my first airliner build. I decided to do this as a Swiss Air aeroplane to give to my daughter as it was the first plane she flew in. As such, I wanted to portray it in-flight, not something I would normally do. I wasn't keen on the kit stand, so I used some clear acrylic sheet to make a new upright, and my dad made a wooden base for it. I think this sets it off so much better than the kit parts.
 
The kit went together well, with no real issues to speak of. I decided to paint the side windows and cover them with decals as there is nothing visible inside. The cockpit had minimal detail so I decided to leave this glass clear.

Paul, it's 1:144 scale, just over 10" long.

How'd you do the panel lines (or are they just scribed deeply?) on such a small model?
