  1. ...and there are even Red Dots, although it is not Japanese! Fantastic work, I love the details!
  2. Andy, you are a top photographer! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Hi Andy, finally finished! And it turned out again a great Job. The T-2CCV will always remind me of our funny encounter with the Museum Clerk at Kakamigahara "The answer is "No!" My Platz 1/72 kit is still waiting... cheers, Norbert
  4. Normally my favourite subjects are airliner. But in a German modelling Forum last year's Competition Topic was "Prototypes and Experimental Aircraft". I discovered this kit on a model Show and bought it. (I like this part of our Hobby the most…) Only when unpacking it at home, I noticed that it would fit the competition subject perfectly and started building it. It was the end of November with the deadline being the 31st of December.. Well, I finished it December, the 27th.... The Leduc 021 was the second prototype of a French ramjet fighter. The engine
  5. Great Pictures! Thank you for sharing. I especially like the H225 and the Twin Otter!
  6. Hi Andy, your model and our visit to the Kamigahara Museum inspired me to take part in the actual competition in the german www.Flugzeugforum.de. This year`'s subject is: Flying boats! So, thnak you for the Motivation! I acquired the actual A&W kit and there is even a trolley or beaching gear included! cheers, Norbert
  7. I really admire what you have made out of the material F-RSIN has provided. I am working on an F-RSIN Comet 1 Right now and therefore know how hard it is to struggle with the rough parts and Surface...
  8. Actually, Google helped! At first I was looking for "Airport Buildings" with no satisfying results. Then I changed the search to "Berlin, Munich (or other cities) Airport" and then these pictures came up. I went to the copy shop and had them printed out in DIN A3, that is 297 x 420 mm. If you want them larger, only a plotter can do that, but then the strength of the paper is limited.
  9. Thank you Guys, it was just a try. But I Keep looking for more suitable Background Pictures.
  10. I had this old Minicraft kit lying in my stash of doom, started, in fact already painted White and I was reluctant throwing it away´even after the much better Skyline kit was available. Going through my collection of decals, I found the BOA Easy Jet sheet and gave it a try. I won´t show you the gear wells, as there are none, I mentioned Minicraft, didn't I? The Right engine is tilted a Little bit, don't know why, oh yes, Minicraft... I tried to use some printed Pictures as Background, but still have Problems with reflections, but some are ok, just to create an Airp
  11. Hi, it was my fourth year on a row that I visited Telford and it is always a lot of fun and sure worth the long trip. Only Thing, I cannot find a Picture report of the Show, where I can have a look at the models I missed. I am doing a picture report myself on the german www.Flugzeugforum.de but other than that I don't find another one. Where do I have to look? Especially I am looking for a Picture of a Diorama in the Competition, showing a 1/72 scale BAe Jetstream with a black Limousine and two Police bikes called "UFO". It won Gold in its category.
  12. Beautiful finish! I am also building one right now and encountered some fit Problems, in the intakes and the exhaust cones for example. Did you also had Problems there? I am waiting for the mailman to bring new ejection seats from air graphics. The seats in the kit require some work to make them look right. I like your model!
  13. What a stunning build! Especially the Cockpit Looks very realistic. I encountered the same difficulties with the decals from Nazca once, so I guess finding the correct decals remains a very important part of our Hobby. I got one of Hasegawa's 170 in my stash but they are hard to find nowadays. Thank you for sharing this Beauty!
  14. Only seven nights? That is what I call a Speed build! The Fitting of Zvezda's kits is fantastic. Giving away the built models solves the problem where to store them... cheers, Norbert
