Continuing on the A320Neo

Hello everyone,

I have been and still working on the Hong Kong Express A320Neo which I hope to have finished during the next weekend. I had to start over because I did not like how the project was going, my first approach was wrong and I am not sure why I did not do as I did with the China Airlines A350.

Here is an example of what was done:

1- I placed the windows with normal paper to check where the cheatline goes, you can also do this by simply adding the windows decal first.

2- I added the cheatline decal and hkexpress.com logos.

3- I clearcoated (and this is very important) so that I could protect the decal from the masking tape and I masked all around the cheatline and logo.

4- Once the masking was done, I painted the tail section.

While adding the cheatlines, it is very important to keep a good symmetry for both sides, a good reference can be the panel lines.

 

Currently the model is 85% decaled and so far so good, did not have any issues with the decals which is a good sign, I did a quite extensive test on this model and I am very happy with this decal paper, this was a really important test for me.

I hope to have this finished by the end of the week as I am really excited to continue with the current projects as well as start the LEAP engines.
Very busy days but I will get back on track again and prepare more stock units once this A320Neo is completed.

Best wishes,
Guillem
