  1. #33/2018 My dad´s first 1/48 armour contribution to our homeland collection. Hobby Boss kit oob, roundel decals from IPMS Austria, base colour is Revell 46 Nato-oliv for RAL7013, shaded with a selfmixed acrylic paint. Due to the lack of suiting number and tactical sign decals, the tank is displayed in a very early form with only Austrian roundels applied. When the Allied occupation of Austria ended in 1955, the Russians "donated" 27 T-34/85 for the revived Austrian Bundesheer. The tanks saw WW2 combat action and were stored from 45 to 55. Together with a bunch of US donated M24 they were the backbone of the early Austrian tankforce. In the late 50ies early 60ies they were replaced with M41, 47 and 60. A few were dug in and used as fixed positions/pill boxes until the year 2000. A few survivors still exist in some army bases and in our military museum for display.

  2. 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
  3. First 1/48 armour contribution to our homeland collection. My dad uses the Hobby Boss kit, which comes with full interior. Gonna ignore that, won´t display it open. Will do an early version with numbers and unit insignias not yet applied. 1956_Sicherung by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr T34BH-7-04 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0008 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  4. Because the Stearman turned out nice, my dad tries another biplane attempt with the Gladiator. The Merit kit is a Trumpeter product, aside from the rigging it should go together well, not many parts, molding and detail look nice.

  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Besides starting an Austrian Tunnan soon (no free building space yet), my dad starts now also an Austrian Bird Dog using the new Roden kit with Brent-Air-Decals. 22 A models and 7 E models were in service with the Austrian Airforce from 1958 to 1997.

  8. After finishing the Ju88, my dad starts the next 2-mot, Zvezda´s nice Pe-2 kit. DSC_0002 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  9. 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
  10. 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....

  11. 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
  12. 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.

Before the WNF G-10 Profi Pack, Eduard already released a limited Czech edition. My dad built it mostly oob, EZ Line for the antenna , brake lines added, painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics. The model displays Avia C-10.21, OK-BYU, Police Air Patrol Unit, Czechoslovak Police Air Force, Prague – Ruzyne, 1947.

    Lovely worn bird, nice detail work!
  19. 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
