Boeing 727-114 Avensa 1/144 scale

Recently I started to convert a 727-30 Lufthansa at 1/70 scale made by Leon Schuyt into a improved 727-200 kit with more details and at 1/144 scale.
As a sidetrip, I decided to make a 727-114 in Avensa colors at 1/144 scale, with better details but no many as the definitive one I'm planning to do.
So this thread is about this model.
Long time ago I had a niche in the Flsim comunity repainting planes, specially 727 and Dc-9 ones.
So this paper model is going to merge both of my hobbies in a hopefull good result.
Avensa was a venezuelan airline that had a fleet of 727 in all it's versions. They had too a handfull of schemes, to the point that not any of the planes were painted the same.
As by today, I'm finishing the repaint of the 3 sheets of letter size that will serve to make the model. I'm not sure if I can publish the finished ones here, so until receiving confirmation, I won't do it.
Anyway, here is an unfinished one and a picture of the real plane.

Ok, this weekend I was supposed to assemble my Ju-88A-4, but... I started the YV-90C.
I'm going with a minimalist approach with the reinforcements. Meaning just 2 spars in each section of the wings and a reinforcement panel between the spars, exactly where the dark gray zone is.
The plane is going to be fully printed in color, but I'm testing to hand paint just the wings, stabilizers and landing gear
My usual camera is currently in Dominican Republic and will return by the end of the month, so I'm using another one with less quality
