Modelling Madness!Revell He111 in 1/32

61 posts in this topic

Spraying outside. In Durham. At mid-winter. With the forecast we've had for the next week or so. Maybe NOT. Although you are delightfully bonkers, so go for it! And talking of bonkers, just how BIG is a 1/32nd HE111...it looks HUUUUGE. I have a comfy chair, a glass or 2 of fine red and chocolate peanuts...mind if I watch and learn?!

I paint mostly in my attic, which would be why I spent four days cleaning it out!:o

For paint, I use acrylics so there are very little fumes and I had a fan facing out from the open window for that little bit that did smell. Of course being Winter now the window is staying closed (mostly) and i use a space-heater to warm the space up before I use it.

Looks like a fun little Build you have there.  :analintruder: I think I'll pull up a pew. :popcorn: great job so far. I keep not buying the Airfix one but this, now this is something else. :ninja:

I built this kit last year - the high part count aside it shouldn't cause you any problems. I found the fit to be exceptional, and if memory serves me correctly, the only filler I used was a smidge on the engine cowlings and to fill sink-marks on the propeller blades.

Thank's Tom,I,ve been over on LSP looking at builds of this kit and saw what I assume is your superb build,I prefer referencing other builds

rather than the real thing as there is enough detail in the box for me!

That's a great looking cockpit so far Steve, it's going to be a beast but I'm sure it will be worth the effort in the end. 

 

I'll follow along if you don't mind?

Good progress, Steve. Its exciting to see how the details look und the first layer of paint.

Are this molded on seatbelts for the pilot ?

Wow! This is like "How do you eat an elephant?"

 

One bite at a time...

 

Each sub-assembly is like a whole kit to us 1/72 types.

They are Bernd and not very good so tape belts will be in order!

Good idea, the seat will be very visible after finish.

It is Massive Stix,that section of wing is larger than the span of a 1/48 Spitfire but the sub assemblies fitted beautifully and a dry run of the

fuselage shows no issues either.

Really enjoying following this one Steve  :popcorn:

Do you mind if I ask a daft question?

 

How big is your loft hatch ?

 

You see going by the size of this beastie, if you put the wings on, it's staying in whatever room you happen to do it in. How do I know this, a mate built an old triumph motorcycle in his flat, we had to take it apart again to get it out ! :wall:

 

cheers Pat

Not big enough! Get a second one and do a Zwilling - someone does a resin centre section to deal with the hard bit ...
