Tu-154M 1/144 *pictures*
Posted by delov on Wednesday, November 4, 2009 9:49 PM

Here is my Tu-154M from Zvezda.  Good kit, fine recessed panel lines.  No problems with the fit, although the landing gear seems a bit weak.  I didn't get around to putting the registration numbers yet and the wheel covers are missing.  Anyway, here are the pix, hope you enjoy them.

Thank you!

I thought the new forum needed some pictures.  Besides, when I first built this model when I was a kid, I didn't bother much with decals so it was a tribute, really.  It was the old East German Plasticard kit.

Nice job! I really enjoyed this kit and plan on building more. I agree about the gear, but it seems sturdy enough to hold the model when it's all said and done. Have you built the 767? It may be even nicer.

Cheers,

Thank you guys for the replies!

I did a little digging, ok, a lot of digging into my decal stash and found the missing reg numbers for the Tu-154, so when I come around I will put the rest of the decals on.

To Aaron, no I don't have the Zvezda 767 but I have the 737-800 Revel kit, looks pretty decent.
