Verkuyl F-27 1:100 Restoration

Postby alumtube » Thu May 03, 2012 5:12 pm

F-27 project in 1:100, bough on ebay from a woman in Thailand. Fun project, always wanted to have a metal f-27 in the colors of ( former ) Norwegian carrier Braathens SAFE. Used to fly these a lot back in Norway when I was a kid.

Unfortunately never enough time off from work, even to do my own project. So just a hobby .... Have several on a shelf in the basement that have been laying there for some years. Just started a metal Convair 340 in 1:72 scale.

Good job! I like the smaller Verkuyl F-27 and F-28 of scale 1/100 rather more than the big ones. They just look more accurate in this tiny size.
I once got a poor Verkuyl F-27 scale 1/100 with Condor livery. It was re-done to LTU. Finally I sold many of my reworked models, but this LTU I kept. Nevertheless I wish to get another good Condor F-27, as this livery is very very rare.
