      Again, this building report is supposed to help you building the kit. Nothing special about the fuselage, just add the tail cone, a bit of putty and sand it flash and it is ready for the paint. I closed all panel lines before painting it and re-scribedŽem into the paint. Though being happy with most of the panel lines, I am not happy with the radome panel line and decided to rework this area.


      I am very sorry, but something had been changed with photo bucket that does not allow me to add pictures here. The feature to upload pictures shall be made more easy by the admins of airlinercafe to enable everyone to add them from any source. Presently, I am not able to add pics anymore.

      Photobucket is refusing to allow third party hosting unless you pay them $399 which is beyond ridiculous. There has been a lot of discussion on Britmodeller and other sites.

      There are plenty of other hosting sites available including Postimage and good old Flickr.

      Hi David,

      Thank you very much for your hints, but I just got a tutorial by a friend about uploading photos directly from my desktop. I`ll try it later this afternoon.

      I eventually managed to upload the corresponding photo for post # 67815.

      Congrats Kurt! I see you got one uploaded. It's actually quite simple once you get the hang of it. One thing I noticed, you have spaces in the file name, which is bad. Please replace all spaces with a underscore or hyphen. File names should be letters and numbers only, and possibly underscore, otherwise, the photo might not display.

      There's extensive instructions in the FAQ section on how to upload photos to Forum posts. It's as easy as...

      1. Create a Folder in your Files section
      2. Upload photos into that folder
      3. Select those photos, either as thumbnail or full image, when creating Forum posts.

      Good luck!

      Regards,

      As mentioned before I reworked the radome. Here is the the result. Also, I began adding the first decals.

      Sorry, I forgot to mention a small flaw of the fuselage. It has a 1cm vertical dent just aft of the wing body fairing which can easily be sanded flush.

      In the meantime, I have added the flap fairings and painted the wings in its basic color. The fairings are numbered 1 to 6 from left to right. You`ll find the digits on the sprues of the fairings.

      My post #67829 about the reworked radome may be misleading. I did not change the shape at all but I filled the radome panel line and re-scribed it similar to the ones on the fuselage.

      That looks fantastic as usual Kurt
      My 762 & 747SP arrived safely the unboxing was exciting & i will try the rescribing panel lines into the paint also.

      Here is a little progress about the engines. The pic shows the alignment markings for the forward and aft sections of the fan cowlings. I have highlighted these for easier detection.


      The next pic shows the markings for the aerodynamic shield plates. YouŽll find 2 of them, though they are mounted on the inside only. The reason is, that I build a single master engine intake only. This means that youŽll have to fill one of either markings.


      Now, I have finished the engines, still weathering will have to be applied.

      Great and needed topic Kurt. I am still a bit curious as from what I've seen the included panel lines look ok to me. If able could you please add pictures of what you use for the build? Like how you detach, grind, panel, polish, etc. These days it is not about lack of info on builds but an overflow of them techniques instead and I'd rather stick with yours, hopefully expecting your results.

      Guys,
      Planning to use Kurt 767 to detail the Taca delivery scheme, are the kits engines correct for the TA 767 ?

      Thanks

      All the best,
      Cesar

      Now comes the most delicate section of the build, the main landing gear( MLG ).
      Here are the raw metal gears, the surfaces still looking rough. The brake rods are added. I have not taken a pic of those resin parts as you will easily identify the 4, about 1cm long pieces.


      After painting the MLG struts the surface looks much smoother.


      Each MLG has a forward and aft support strut, which are marked accordingly.


      Here you can see how these struts shall be assembled. I highly recommend to visit the airlinercafe walkaround section for more detailed pics of the real 767-200


      The next 4 pics are about the gear doors. Some are marked as left and right. Parts 4 are the nose gear doors, which will be addressed later. Gear doors 1, 3 and 2 are shown assembled in sequence.

      Very nice build Kurt!

      I really like your panel line method.

      Very nice finish, Kurt!

      What do you use for weathering? It looks very realistic.
