      Have any of the decal makers ever released a sheet for a LACSA (Lineas Aereas Costarricenses SA) 727-200 (and/or -100) in their 1980s red/white/blue livery, in 1/144 or 1/200 (or both)?

      I remember Atlantic Models in Miami had a very basic (travel agency model-quality) sheet for a LACSA 727-200's in 1/200 scale. This was back in the 80's and I might actually have one in my decal stash (intending to use it for a BAC 111-500). In any case, they may be able to still produce the sheet in different scales. I'll look for mine as well.

      Never put off for tomorrow what can dry overnight

      hi!

      I have the basic 737-200 desing and would adapt it to the 727, post some pics or links to be sure the scheme you are looking for is the right one

      Could a couple of sets of the Liveries Unlimited sheet for the A320 (A4-051) be adapted?

      The scheme I remember for the 727's, DC-8's and BAC 111's had straight diagonal blue and red stripes on the tail with a solid blue cheat line running below the windows; the A320's 737's had a different scheme.

      I had the artwork completely done and it would have been one of my next LU releases when I folded up my tent in 2001.

      Could the artwork be located and used by someone to print the sheet, or is it lost and gone forever? Or would it be possible to add a LACSA 727-200 to your selection of superb profiles?

      Gaston,
      Put me down for a sheet. Please include-200 "Bri Bri".
      That's the ship I've been wanting to build.
      1980s planes forever,

      Was that the earlier Ladeco yellow/orange 'hockey stick' livery or the later scheme with white fuselage and dark blue tail with 'copper nugget(?)' logos?

      Hi Gaston! Do you found the LACSA aircraft names...? This is what I found for the Boeing 727-200's:

      1. TI-LRQ (727-212) Kais-Garzia Blanca.
      2. N1279E (727-2Q6) Zurqui.
      3. N1280E (727-2Q6) Bri-Bri.

      *Source: WAF - 1985.

      *Note: Swear that "Garzia Blanca" must read "Garza Blanca" (White Heron).

      Hope this helps.
