  1. Yes, kinda boring scheme, but the green paint covers all the tracks better than a silver paint. Maybe my dad makes a new attempt on a shiny one in the future.
  2. To save the model my dad sanded off the decals very gently and started to spray it green and do the Chinese version. DSC_0008 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  3. Besides the Roden Bird Dog, my dad decided to build the Model USA kit from our stash too. Let´s see which of the two models makes it first to finish, or not at all DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  4. and some more interior work DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr masking tape as seatbelts DSC_0002 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr but for the visible pilot seat some Eduard PE stuff DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  5. The model may not see a happy end....my dad had to do some airvrush work and therefore covered the fuselage decals with masking tape. Although the model was already sealed, when removing the tape, parts of the decals came off too.. He then tried to remove all decals with masking tape, but when you want them to come off, no chance. Sanding them off would leave a lot of scratches which you will definitely see afterwards doing a different silver scheme. Before throwing away the model, he will try now to do the green Chinese scheme, depending on how much the original decals shine through....

  6. Whereas ICM has improved in quality and fit, Roden didn´t. Still no good fit and lots of ejector pins, but let´s see how it goes on... DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  7. First rigging attempt didn´t turn out, monofil fishing line and CA glue didn´t become friends, lines got loose again. So my dad turned to elastic thread, but before that he had to drill once again through the holes to get rid of the CA remnants. Model won´t win a beauty contest but still looks ok.

  12. Thanks! The Czech Police had air units since 1935, seems they did mostly border patrol duty back then and served also as some kind of national guard. Here´s some info about the Czech Police aviation: http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/waf/czech/pol/czech-police-home.htm
