Starting to work on the nose for the 747-8F/747-400F cargo detail set. The grey colour is due putty being diluted to create a somewhat texture to the interior. Note that the 16 latches that keep the nose tight on the real aircraft have also been added here.
Floor is still not added as well as some other vertical bars that go across the end of the nose.
I plan to make the flaps of the nose with photo etched.
I have recently finished the guide I was working on alongside the China Airlines A350 build. I truly hope it can be of help, I know most of us modelers know these basic steps, but I tried to give some tips on mistakes and problems I found during the time, so I hope you won’t come accross with them and avoid issues on your model.
Lastly, I would like to comment that I am working on two new A350 liveries and will upload the profile images in the next week.
It has been about a week since the online store was opened and I am glad to say that all orders received have been successfully shipped from both Rocast Models and Rocast-Digidecals without problems.
I want to thank you all for the trust, for the patience and support for my work and my items. Starting this new online store represented the preparation of all the items that I created so far, as I wanted to open the store with all the items in the catalogue, this took me a very long time but I kept on pursuing my wish.
Currently, some items sold out during the last days, but I am already working on new stock units and also hoping to continue with future projects.
From this point, items will be added to the store regularly and will do my best to keep them in stock. The first units I am planing to restock are the Neo engines, AST-1, catering truck, and so forth.
I would like to remind that Rob is moving his workplace thus the printing of the decals will be on hold for some time until he is established and printing can resume, this time with the rest of the decals available. In the meantime, I would like to do a few more liveries for the A350.
I am finishing the painting/decaling guide that I started together with the A350 China Airlines pheasant livery, so I hope that this guide can be helpful to somebody.
Finally the new online store is online and operative. Stock units may be a little limited as I had to start from zero making as many units as I could with the material I had. Material keeps coming so I am looking forward to have a better control of the stock with the time.
Two things I like to mention are; on Monday it is local holiday here, therefore postal offices will remain closed, however, orders will be prepared during this time without problems. The stock for the livery decals will be a little limited at the beginning because Rob is currently changing his workplace, so printing will be resumed upon settled in the new location. The aim is to restock the livery decals on August.
If anybody finds an issue with the store, please feel free to write me a message.
I would like to thank all for the patience, it hasn’t been easy but I did my best and hopefully the store will have new items soon. I also hope the store is of your liking and that you can navigate through it sucessfully.
I am glad to announce that I have finished the A350 and with this, a guide I am writing on painting and decaling, giving some tips to avoid the errors I made in past models, and also glad to announce that tomorrow I will publish the new online store here.
Hopefully all will work well, it has been a long time to prepare everything, test everything, so I am really hoping that all will go well. There is still some material on its way, so once I receive everything I will be adding stock to the store in due course.
Thanks to everybody for your patience!
This A350 shows one of our A350 liveries that will be in our catalogue very soon. I would like to thank Rob at Wessex Transfers for his trust and skills to print these livery decals that I’ve been working on for such a long time, this will be one of the first of many to come under our brand name Rocast-Digidecals.
