About to finish


Well... last night I took one more step to finish it after over 1 and a half year.
It took too long to find the right sparay paint (Foam safe).

Just some small details are still pending. Soon it's gonna be finished and more similar to the real one.

Fabio, thank you for the close up photos! They really help me see the details of your construction. I still want to build a 727 someday, but it wont be anytime soon.

Hello guys!
Here are some more photos taken by my friend from work, DesignGeek a few months ago.

I'm not flying for a while till I have some time to send my Tx to some repair and check-up.

Cheers.

Sorry for the long time to reply. Actualy I didnīt use plans. Instead, I used a card model, just like neffwaffe does.
Anyway, Iīll check for permission to post it as itīs no longer online available.

Almost 2 years after istīs firs flight I could find the right blue color sparay paint to finish the belly and wingbox according to the fullsize oneīs color scheme.

Hereīs one of the flights w/ "almost final" finish, in a dream airstrip:
727 Avon 13 fev 2011 (5 min 29 sec)

Great video! Thanks for sharing. I'd still love a 727 but don't foresee the time available to attempt the build.
