      Nice work! I can't believe they make a DHC-6 and a J31 in 1:500 scale!

        Thanks! The DHC-6 and Jetstream are two really small aircraft and only possible in scale 1:500 thanks to 3D printing.

            Hello guys,

            A new update of European customs tonight with customs in scales 1:500 and 1:200.

            I have some rare and beautiful small models in scale 1:500, such as a British Airways A319 Olympic 2012 "Golden Dove".

            In scale 1:200, I have a set of DC-3 models, all with the same registration and livery, but a total number of 10 models, all ordered by the Swedish association "Flygande Veteraner" (Flying Veterans).
            The plane is an old DC-3, build in as a C-47 in 1943. It flew with the US Army Air Force, based in Oran, Algeria.
            Later in 1944, she participated in the D-day landings, dropping paratroopers over Normandie.
            After her military service with the Americans, she was rebuilt as a civilian passenger plane, first flying for the DNL, later picked up by SAS when SAS was founded.
            in 1957 she was sold to the Swedish domestic airline "Linjeflyg" and flew with this airline up until 1960 when she was sold to the Swedish Air Force.
            In 1982 she was retired from service with the Air Force and were now purchased by the same association that owns and operates her today. She is now, once again painted in the old Scandinavian Airlines System livery, looking just as she did when operating for them 60 years ago.
            But now based at the Airport in Västerås.

            Please enjoy!!

                      Good evening,

                      A new update of customs for the Europe thread, all completed during the autumn months of 2017. This time including the following.


                      Loganair DHC6 Twin Otter G-SGTS
                      LTU Airbus A320
                      LTU Airbus A321

                      G-SGTS, built in 2014 she is owned by Loganair and features this Scottish blue and white livery.

                      Around the Merger of Air Berlin and LTU, some of the LTU aeroplanes were pained in the later Air Berlin livery style livery. However, the A320 and A321 were not among these, but as if so, this was probably how these aeroplanes would have looked.


                      British Air Ferries BAF Handley Page Herald G-ASVO
                      British Airways Boeing 747-400 “World Tail” G-BNLJ
                      Channel Express Handley Page Herald G-GNSY

                      G-ASVO was originally built in 1964 and later flew for among other British Air Ferries, Channel Express and British Midland. Seen here is how she looked at the British Air Ferries colours.

                      G-BNLJ, Delivered to British Airways in May 1990 and featured the “Ndebele Martha” livery during the BA world tails era. In October 2016, it was withdrawn from service after 26 years, 4 months and 9 days of service, and now stored at Teruel.

                      G-GNSY, built in 1968 she flew with this registration when operated for Channel Express in the 1980s and 1990s. She also wore the registrations of G-BFRK, I-ZERD and 4X-AHN during her life.


                      KLM Cityhopper Fokker F100 PH-OFJ
                      Lufthansa Boeing 737-300 D-ABEH
                      Scandinavian Airlines System SAS (Flygande Veteraner) Douglas DC-3 SE-CFP x16

                      PH-OFJ a KLM Cityhopper Fokker F100 that flew with the airline for 7 years of it's 21 and a half-year life. It was delivered to Inter-Canadien in Jan 1989, with registration C-FICB, after this she wore three more registrations but with nine airlines, F-GIOV from October 1991 to Jan 1996, when re-registered to G-UKFJ and flew with this registration until Mars 2003 when given its last registration with KLM Cityhopper.

                      D-ABEH was delivered to Lufthansa in 1991, named “Bad Kissingen” and flew for Lufthansa Express between 1992 and 1994. After 25 years and 14 days, she was retired and ferried to Orlando Sandford nine days later.

                      SE-CFP featured a few times previously in my treads, but here are another 16 new copies of this old beauty. Still going strong after 75 years. It had an unfortunate engine failure last year on its way to England for the Duxford flying legends and had to return to Lelystad, the Netherlands for a complete engine change. Back in the air after just a few weeks and have her heading set for a new try at the air show this year.

                      Condor Boeing 757-300 D-ABOH

                      D-ABOH, an 18-year-old 757-300 with Condor. Delivered in Mars 1999, she has since then seen service with Condor, but also Thomas Cook and Transavia.
