1/144 Revell Thai Airways Royal Barge 747-400 (HS-TGO)

Greetings from tropical Singapore...
Decided to build this wonderful looking Thai Airways 747-400 (Civil registration HS-TGO) that was painted in the Royal Barge livery back in 2003 - 2008. For some unfortunate reason, the airline decided to repaint the 747 to what it is today with their corporate white/gold/purple livery. Hope some day, the airline would re-paint this attractive and unique livery that is very characteristic of Thailand.

Started with the base kit from Revell 747-400 kit that was in my kit stash and purchased the custom designed laser printed decal from Thailand on ebay. Also purchased realistic cabin window decals from Ascensio Russia to complement the kit decals. 

Painting this kit was a bit of a challenge as I had to ensure the gold trimmings were properly aligned and symmetrical with the dark blue fuselage base. (No decal was provided for this :-( )

Enjoy the photos and my artwork. FYI, it's also up for sale, so do inform if you're interested to purchase as it comes with a large custom made Acrylic case!
