Boeing 757-200 ICELANDAIR Hekla Aurora,

Hello all
When I saw this livery, I decided I have to build this plane, although I am not too much into civilian airliners
Designed by Hermercraft (Edwin Rodriguez).
Scale 1:120.
Parts fit is great, detalisation is ok.

The model can be downloaded here https://mega.nz/#!DJAw1aTI!pzA4a3F1G...4X2d7VGnPARut0

This is a free model distributed by Hermercraft on his Facebook and YouTube channels
One thing that made me wondering was the rudder to fuselage connection, I will have to think what to do with it

Hello everybody
I continue with this beautiful Boeing.
I didn't like how the tail section and the rudder looked. So I disassembled the tail section and rebuilt it in a usual way, without cutting the top of the sections. New rudder came along and then elevators. Looks much better, at least for me.

Great!! I also followed the same procedure for my 757, but I had trouble gluing it flush to the fuselage.

Thank you guys!!

There is a small issue in fit between parts B5 and B6. It was partially a reason why I decided to rebuilt the rear end. Other part was that it was too cumbersome to combine the stair with rear section. At least for me.
So for the second time, I made the B6 B7 B8 B9 about 0.5 mm larger and painted the white lines with my Carioca Markers. Fit became to be acceptable, the seam line is hardly seen, so I'm happy :-)
