  1. Hallo, Toryu Yous post saves me lots of time for grasping and lookoing around. Happy modelling
  2. Hallo, 72modeler, Thanks for the answer and the links. I want to build the VF-1B 1933-1934 from the USS Saratoga. The second option is the VB-5B 1935 from the USS Lexington. Happy modelling
  3. Hallo I am going to build a F4B-4 in 1/32 from Hasegawa, after my Spitfire in 1/32 from Tamiya is finished. It will be my first interwar American Navy Fighter. Actually I build lots of biplanes. But never interwar biplanes. Has anybody built this Hasegawa kit? I would like to hear your experience about it. Are there any remarkable flaws in the kit or instructions? I have as aftermarket the engine from Vector Resin. Has anybody photos from this aircraft? Let me know. Thanks in forward. Happy modelling
  4. Hallo This is my last 48th scale Spit. The next will be in 32. Now, more or less straight from the box. Just dashboard and belts added. And less decals, all insignia sprayed with Montex masks. So have a look! Happy modelling
  5. Hallo This Seafire is from Airfix kit with some etched parts. The roundels are sprayed. So, have a look. Happy modelling
  6. Hallo This is my next Spitfire. A IXc variant. Quite straight from the box. With some use of some etched parts. Some more ahead. I choose Techmod decals, because this colorful option won my heart. Beside this I had a book about the southern theater of operation. Well, next time a Spitfire again! Happy modelling
  7. Thank you tonyot I will think about it, to repair it that way! Happy modelling
  8. Hallo This is my last of a serie of 3 Spitfires Mk.I. The kit I knew already and it was a fast enjoying built. Happy modelling
  9. Hallo Here are my trucks and a/c. In 1/35 and 1/48. Happy modelling
  10. Hallo My first was: This kit is from Eduard. It is absolute superior to Tamiya new Spitfire kit. Due to surface detail and logical design. The airscrew is significant, the first two blade airscrew which is a model! Not a stick full of sinkholes as it was from Airfix or analogic from Classic Airframe's Hurricane! The new TFace mask are just to recommend! Well, that is it. Happy modelling
  11. Hallo Does anybody have photos from this two Spitfires? I checked it in the web, but I was not successful with this particular a/c. Thanks in forward. Happy modelling
  12. Thank you all, specialy Spitfire31 I know the radio equipment, but not at all the arial configuration. I build since 25 years Spitfires, now in my old days I learn such a substantial information. Thank you a lot! Happy modelling

    Hallo My objective is to create a real a living aircraft. Not just a nice sprayed and nicely painted a/c. I want to make it real. · At the beginning oil in panel lines · I started with oil dots in white, brown and black. This you can see yet! · The next step will be some spraying. Here shading of distinctive panels, in a lighter tone in the center. · Some darkening of panel lines by spraying transverse in against flying direction · Some silver paint at often-accessed areas. Do you have some additional ideas? Happy modelling
  17. Hallo again This kit I built straight from the box. In addition to my truck. So, that is it. Happy modelling
  18. Hallo again After some day work I got it. I found some original photos, to get a little bit clue about this fantastic vehicle. Well, the kit was accurate and a joy to build it. Recommended for an advanced modeler. Happy modelling
  19. Skoda Rasdschlepper Ost Riich.Models 1/35 Engine: The enginer consists of many small parts, all of which are very accurate. So assembled is easy straight forward. The engine I sprayed black completely, then I dry brushed with aluminum C8. Frame: assembly without exhaust, gear rods and winch. Sprayed in dark gray C40, weathering with oil. I dipped the rope in brown oil mixture and left it for one day to become dry. Wheels: The RSO was designed with oversized steel wheels. Aluminum tread sprayed, afterward I put some crystals of salt with some water, and let it dry. After a layer of yellow paint, I brushed off the salt and darkened the surface with highly diluted black paint. Happy modelling
  20. Some mor and better pics.
