  • Boeing T-43A

    Hi

    Could anyone tell me the colour scheme to this particular aircraft I am looking to build this in 1/72 and would like to know what is the current paint scheme.
    I have been on other forums and have been told that it is overall gloss white although pictures seem to say that it has lower light grey

    The current scheme is overall white, but that's not to say that there aren't a few still flying around in old colors.

    Why 1/72 scale though? Unless you can find the ancient Monogram 1/72 737-200 kit (good luck), I don't even see how you can build it in that scale.

    I would go with either Hasegawa's excellent 1/200 scale model, like this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/HASEGAWA-T-43A-A...3A1%7C294%3A50

    I know the auction says one 1/1200, but that's an error.

    Alternatively, I'd go with the Airfix 1/144 737-200 and use Greg Drawbaugh's T-43A decal sheet, found here:

      T-43a

      I have actually completed the Welsh model kit which is a vacform and resin kit in 1/72 but I am stuck on the overall colour scheme as the welsh kit seems to be wrong and says it is grey FS 16515 underneath

        Ah! You're much more patient man than I am, if you can do vac-form stuff. Drawdecal makes that sheet in 1/72 scale as well, they also have the older scheme sheet.

          This model comes with the decals althogu you have to cut out them individually as they are on one whole decal sheet but they look very good though
