  1. Even though I like eggplanes I wasn't going to build a Panther tank. OK. I have to confess that the idea isn't mine. I stole from a build at the IPMS Stockholm forum. I just had to build it as the idea was so much better than the one I had earlier.
  2. I meant to say that I did't recognise it to be as large as 13 cm. The figure that popped up in my head was an 8 cm insert.
  3. I will follow this. I didn't recognise the 13 cm so I had a look in the Viggen book. The new engine in the JA 37 needed an extension of 7 cm but they tilted the forward par little downward so the total extension of the fuselage became 13 cm. So the insert were longer at the top.
  4. The third Rolls Royce is finished. I might add some German jerry cans to it. Here are all three together.
  5. No mystery. The companies don't think they will sell enough to be profitable.
  6. I finally managed to get the third coat of paint on. Now it is time for the nerve wrecking point when it is time to remove the masking tape. To my relief it wasn't a total disaster hiding under the tape. Touch up's are needed but not as much as I thought.
  7. I have had no luck with Roden before but I will try again. Third time lucky?
  8. My kit is ready to paint if I ever will find the canopy that I lost.
  9. Some tips for building the 111C: www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?f=644810&t=490174&p=2435789 www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?f=644810&t=490189&p=2436773 www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?f=644810&t=490203&p=2438568 www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/viewtopic.php?f=644810&t=490810&p=2497564 I admire that you finished a "Pedro" I would like to have a 111B to but I'm not going to build a Roden 111 again.
  10. I've read that the race numbers were stipulated to be painted on a white background which Black Magic failed to do.
  11. I doubt that the engines for the Academy kit will fit on Airfix. Academy's engines are much smaller.
  12. Next coat of paint. Masking this isn't fun in this scale.
  13. Finding figures might be an obstacle. The monogram kits is said to be 1/41 scale https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?fkSECTION[]=All&q=cessna+180*
  14. I'm gonna regret this. I have the Renwal's Fabulous Flying Machine kits and got the "bright idea" of building the Bleriot as a Thulin model A as it was a modified Bleriot. I started with the stabiliser. The material used looks oversized. But I need some material to sand down in to the shape I want. I was curious on how the Aeroskin work so I started on the bottom of the wing. The instructions told me to lay the aeroskin on the wing and brush liquid glue on. It would seep through the skin and melt the plastic that would go into the pores of the skin bonding it. I thought that one of the benefits using this kit instead of the Frog kit is that I have to add the plywood covering on the fuselage and it is shorter on this plane than on the Frog. If I had used the Frog kit I would have to remove much material. That was wishful thinking. I had glued the fuselage together and was trying to figure out how to fix a Gnome Omega engine to it, but it did not work. The fuselage was to narrow. The Frog kit was out of the competition so I have to keep working with this one. One option is to scratch build the fuselage but I will use parts of the kit fuselage. On the positive side is that I'm using round rod to rebuild it so it will be more like the original.
