Hey all I have an icelandair 757-300 GJ with the rear antena missing how should i replace it, with a donor or will that break the part, and i dont want glue splattered on the fusalage
any help is appreciated
Occasionally I get a model that has a missing aerial. So I attempt to make a replacement using some thin plasticard but it’s fiddly to make (even in 1/200) and usually comes out looking a bit oversized. But when it’s on the underside it’s not quite so obvious. I’ve also tried using some 5 amp fuse wire but it doesn’t look as good.IMG_0394.jpeg
I was able to get replacement aerials directly from Gemini Jets when I noticed that they were missing on the American 737-Max 8 that I had recently purchased. That might be worth a try.
