Thumbs up A shout out to Callie!

So many times we hear about the bad, but not that often do we hear about the good, or great in this case.

I had saved and was going to reinstall the side windows/doors on my Airliner II. The saving went well, the reusing not so.

Anywho, I contacted Callie (Callie Graphics) about a set. She said no problem, already have the templates on file, will ship out on Friday.

Got em today, and WOW!!! The are AMAZING!

Not only did she send the side doors/windows, she also sent the cockpit windows, and 4 cargo doors. The detail of them is a work of art.

Each of the passenger doors have tiny exit signs and windows, the windows have frames.
The cockpit windows have two color frames with rivets. The cargo doors, have similar exit signs, door handles with signs above each with "open" and a directional arrow for throw.

All this for $10.00. Shipped!!!

Going to make a so so plane look like a million dollars!

And hopefully she doesn't read this, but I would have gladly paid 2 or 3 times the price for this kind of quality.

She really is the best at what she does. Have used her services on many occasions and never disappoints. Glad to hear your airliner is close to debut.

Ever watch Demon Driver's vids? Chris is amazing at the Scratchbuilt airliners.

Yep, DD is the airliner god!

An add on to my story. After finishing painting the Airliner, and before contacting Callie, I had like said saved the old one to try an reuse. When the time came, I couldn't find the cockpit windows to reglue on. I tore the shop apart, crawled under benches, moved the tractor and the Jeeps, even tore apart the vacuum, just in case. No where to be found. I ended up painting them on.

Today, I'm getting ready to head to Road Atlanta with our car. I go to grab some baggies in the kitchen, to pack stuff in, and there on top of the box is the cockpit window sticker.

I'm thinking Aliens or Twilight Zone, as I have no idea how they ended up there.

Anywho, stickers applied, "We To Low Airlines" now open for business.
Will be competing against it's sister liner "Banana Republic Airlines"

Ah a Transavia! Somebody was a Mad Max fan. I had a short kit for one of those, ended up not building it, and sold it. It sure is one odd ball machine.

As for "We To Lo" airlines, I took the liberty of borrowing it from that news report that had the, shall we say, incorrect crew names. Like Sum Ting Wong, Bang Ding Ow, and Ho Lee F*k. WTL seemed the better choice of names for an airliner.
