The following schemes are for F27 Friendship aircraft that have operated in New Zealand.
For 72nd scale the decals have been fitted to the Airfix kit for the -100 aircraft and the Escii kit for the -500 aircraft. For the Airfix kit you will need to use the short nose for BXA-D and NAA, NAB, NAF and NAH, the long nose for BXE-I, DCA, B, G, the RNZAF aircraft and RTA, and in all cases either add an additional window forward or use the decal windows. The Esci -500 kit should be used for NAN, NAO and NFA-J, PAX and POH.
For 144th scale the decals have been fitted to the F-RSIN -100 (Aer Lingus) kit – the only one with a short nose – for BXA-D and NAA, NAB, NAF and NAH, and the F-RSIN -200, Welsh -200 and Doyusha kits for BXE-I, DCA, B, G, the RNZAF aircraft, the -400 kit for RTA, and the F-RSIN and Welsh -500 kits for the -500s. For 96th scale the Revell F27-200 kit was used for fit.
The HS748 are scaled to the S&M and Rug Rats Resin kits in 72nd and the S&M, Duarte and Welsh kits in 144th.
For Viscounts in 144th scale these decals have been fitted to the Authentic Airliners, Welsh and S&M Models kits. For 96 scale they were fitted to the Frog/Triang kit.
The NAC Viscounts were new build models 807 aircraft, ZK-NAI was a series 804 procured from LOT and modified by NAC to 807B standard, the SkyBus aircraft was a second hand series 802.
Note: These decals will NOT fit the 72 scale Mach2 kit or the 96 scale Glencoe kits – those models are of the much smaller Viscount 700 series.
The Electra II decals have been fitted to the 1/144 Welsh fuselage conversion for the Minicraft kit and scaled for 1/72
For the DC-6 the decals were fitted to the Roden DC6 in 1/144 and scaled for 1/72. Note these are DC-6 aircraft NOT DC6A or DC6B.
Some of the decals have also been produced in other scales on request. If this interests you please ask.
