right i must be mad but im going to give a commercial airliner a shot..its the heller boeing e-3 awacs but itll will be finished in its civilian clothing with a retro aer lingus scheme..its the same scheme as ray flynn did a while ago and if i can come anywhere close to his version ill be very happy indeed..

not a huge amount of parts in the box but its a big ole bird. 65cm long and 62 cm wide..the retro decals have been ordered from the aviation megastore in holland as they werent as easy to find in 1\72 as i thought they would be!

ive glued the a few parts together..tail fin ,rear stabilizers etc and warpage is at a maximum.. gonna be a tough build!
