      Hello all,

      After some time trying to get myself back, it seems that I am finally on my way to overcome some difficulties that came and I am currently preparing the stock units of the GSE models as well as casting the new ones.

      As newlty in the catalogue, together with my friend Rob, we will make available new aircraft decals which I hope can be well received, lots of time has been used for them to make as many details as possible.

      This Iberia A320 uses a print test (there are some inaccuracies on the windows) to test those decals and I am very happy with how these adapt to the model.

      It may be a boring livery but I decided to make this A320 in IB colors because I wanted to add the Neo engines to it, but finally I had to use the kit's engines (Revell donor) as I am correcting some areas of the Neo engines. This example model also makes use of the new galley / cargo hold items as well.

      Hope you will like it












































      I will keep on working with the stock preparations and the online store, hopefully I can advance as much as I can, but I go step by step

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Oh, my. Lovely!

      It pretty much just needs your upcoming refueling truck to finish it off. And an airbridge. And a de-icing truck. LOL

      I can't wait to order!

      I am not fan of Airbus but in the modeling hobby it does not matter. An excellent model is an excellent model and this one goes beyond fascinating.

      Guillem, you did fantastic detailing on this model. It is an achievement many of us strive to obtain and rarely do.

      Congratulations on a beautiful work of art.

      This model confirms the reason why I switched from model aircraft construction to basket weaving....Simply amazing craftsmanship and details. BRAVO!

      Thank you all for your very kind words

      For me it has always been a boost and motivation while browsing the members gallery section of this forum and that motivated me to go on with this model, it spent too long time on my work table but it is finally done

      I also hope to make other GSE models to create a more detailed scene, and one of the big wishes I have for the future is to make a finger/terminal section of the different airports in the world, but that is just a dream at the moment

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Thanks for your comment Zbynek

      I've been a bit busy these last days preparing the photo etched parts for the GSE models and also correcting the sharklets I previously made for the A320.

      I have set the goal to open the new store within 10 days and I will also update my site on regards the A320Neo engines. These are going to take me a little bit of work with the panel lines but I will also fix the upper area of the pylons. A challenge I set to myself for these engines is to have them casted (cowlings+pylon) with one single piece in order to avoid joining halves, exhaust can be placed separately.

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      You referring to the concave leading edge on that one? Might be able to deal with that using some putty, the rest looks pretty much spot on.

      Yes, I have modified them finally, here is a picture of them:

      Hopefully these are better now

      Yeah, those look pretty solid from an eyeballing perspective.

      Thank you for your input Jon.
      I have modified the angle of these sharklets by having as reference a profile image reduced to scale + the A320 diagrams reduced to scale as well.

      Are these v2 ones commercially available? I'd like to get a set if so.
