Being one of them,I know that Collectors are always looking for items which are just not available or " skyhigh" expensive.To overcome that problem I have developped my own process in order to obtain any "special" livery which is a must for my collection! From any spare model I remove the existing livery which I substitute with the one I made. So far I have modified more than 200 model planes in that scale.
If you are interested you can have a look at some pictures of my "home-made" airliners. Since they are made at a sole examplar to supplement my own collection they are not for sale or swap!
But if you wish I will gladly tell you all about it and, relax, this is not difficult and free of charge. I enjoy collecting in the 1/500 scale: Herpa, Majorette,Siku, Star jets & others. .From any spare model I remove the existing livery which I substitute with the one I made. So far I have modified more than 150 model planes in that scale.
