A question for the airliner heads out there. What are the Hasegawa 1/200 727-200s like? Snowys have a special on atm and I wanted to do an Ansett and a TAA one. I'm not to stressed about accuracy as they are only airliners (tic I'll now duck for cover). Just want a good representation of them. Thanks in advance guys. Cheers Paul

Hi Paul,
Mate, you can't go wrong with the Hasegawa 1:200 727-200 "three holer" kit. It is finely detailed, easy to build, and up to the usual high quality standards of all the other Hasegawa 1:200 "Loveliner" series of airliner kits. In fact it is more technically-accurate then some of the larger scale 727 kits. This kit was issued in at least two Australian-flavoured releases including kit number LB003:500 (Ansett 727-200 in the classic "shooting stars" 80s colour scheme) and kit number LL24:800 (Ansett 727-200 in the elegant "golden A" final colour scheme). You can get quiet a few "after market" decals for this kit also.
regards
the other Ray

Agree with Ray, the only kit that surpases it as far as I've seen is the Minicraft 144 scale B727-200. I've done a few of the Hasegawa 727's over the years, good quality kit. At present I'm building a 144 scale B727-200 and 100 both TAA 70's scheme using Hawkeye decals, I have to say, Claytons decals are superb.

Hi Paul,
While I admit that the F-4 is a nice LITTLE aeroplane, they can be a bit of a pain. Just the other day on the A380 I found a couple buzzing around the rear galley light!!!(TIC)

The A380 being of european origin, they were probably pissweak.....I mean pesky Eurofighters. But you are right. Phantoms are a bit of a pain...........if you're a bad guy
