    Default Boeing 787-8 To 787-9 Conversion ( Air New Zealand)

    Hi

    I started to convert the 787-8 kit into the 787-9 by adding 21.5mm in front and behind the wings

    To join the fuselages back together i used some 40mm PVC pipe i have to slot this down the middle so it would close up and fit inside the glues fuselage sections , i always do conversions this way rather than destroying another kit





    Both fuselage extensions filled and sanded back i use car boddy filler for this


    Fuselage painted black now ready for decals The decal are made by myself


    Today i have started adding some of the decals the decals are Inkjet Printed on white Decal paper so that i get the white to show on the dark background


    In this picture you can probably see the white outline arround the logo this can be got rid off after the decal has dried by painting round the edge with some thinned down white paint

    Very nice, looking forward to seeing the finished product. An interesting method to increase the fuselage length. Regarding painting around the white outline of the decals, did you mean that you'll use thinned down black paint, as opposed to thinned down white paint?
