  1. Thanks for a great GB. Unfortunately I didn't have time to finish my Rafale M. But I'll finish it, hopefully before New Years. /Bosse
  2. Hi, and thank reini. This weekend I worked mostly on my Netz II, but I got some work done on the Norwegian F-16 as well. By work I mean filling gaps. I've now built three Kinetic F-16's and I'd these gaps on all of them. A very thin gap on the front of the air intake. 070 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr A slightly bigger gap where the air intake meets the rest of the fuselage. 071 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr The gaps is on both sides of the intake. And I didn't get the panels in the nose completely right, so I had to use some putty on one of them. 072 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Then it became Saturday evening and this evening we had lots of shrimps, lots of nice chilled Riesling and bread, cheeses etc was on the menu. 073 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr To be continued..... /Bosse
  3. Hi, Another weekend has passed and I've had some time to build more on my Netz II. The exhaust is painted. 244 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Her I've used a new colour from AKAN, Gold tinted black metalic. I think it just right for the exhaust on an F-16 I'll do some weathering later on on it using Tamiya's "make-up" sets. I've also added the battery box and a pressure tank in the main landing gear bay. 245 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 246 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And I'd forgotten to add the wing tip missile rails. 247 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 248 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Now I've started the final assembly sequence. 249 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Hopefully I'll have this one done soon. To be continued..... /Bosse
  4. Ahoy Vikings. Yesterday I did some more work on my Norwegian F-16. It's time to get the intake in place. This step is one that always troubles me. I've found out that the problem lays with the forward bulkhead in the main landing gear bay. 063 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr On the inside of the intake there is a slot where the bulkhead are supposed to be. But if you follow Kinetics instructions the bulkhead won't fit in the slot. 061 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I tested with expanding the slot all way. 062 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr But that didn't work, but the bulkhead came loose when I was trying to fit it. 064 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr So lets test and see if you add the bulkhead to the intake first instead of the landing gear bay, Success. 065 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Almost there. 066 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 067 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Put some pressure to it and glue it in place. 069 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr So now I found an alternative way to build Kinetics F-16. To be continued..... /Bosse
  5. Thanks Pat. The Kinetic kit does require some work, but isn't that what this hobby is about? /Bosse
  6. Ahoy Vikings. I've done some more work on my Norwegian F-16. The nose panels are in place. 055 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 056 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And since this is a Norwegian F-16 I've added the search light in the nose. The Norwegian call this "Russelyset" As I've said in my Netz II build the nose panels are a bit too small. 057 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I think this relates to that Kinetic did a new lower fuselage to correct the faulty profile their first run of this kit have. But if you glue the panels to the upper part to the nose section you can align the panels so that they follow the nose contour, but you'll have this millimeter wide gap at the bottom. 058 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And then you just fill the gaps with a suitable piece of plasticard. 059 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I drenched the strips with Tamiya Extra Thin and will let it set for a day before I'll start to cut away the excess plastic. To be continued..... /Bosse
  7. Fantastic painting Jeroen. Actually I thought the first two pictures where 3D CAD images. /Bosse
  8. Hi. Just a quick update. As suspected, I had to putty the whole front fuselage seam 054 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr On my Netz II I used liquid sprue, but that took a full week to harden. So this time I've used Perfect Plastic Putty to see if that will save me some time. To be continued.,,,, /Bosse
  9. Hi @Col. Since the GB calender 2022 doesn't co-operate with my own schedule I think I'll enter this one in this GB instead of @trickyrich "Turning Japanese GB" 099 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I'd love to do both GB's but unfortunately I can't due to the upcoming renovation of our flat. If it's eligible here at least I have a shot to build it before I have to pack up all my modeling gear in the Spring/Summer. /Bosse - who's going to miss some great GB's next year.
  10. Thanks Werner Under a bit more normal situation a week would be sufficient to get this one done. But this week is a very busy week, so I guess I'll not be spending many hours at the work bench. And I'll not rush it just for that reason. /Bosse
  11. Great that this one went through the bunfight with enough support. Now I'm just hoping that it will fit into my Calender for 2022. i.e. not between April - September 2022. We're evacuating our flat for renovation next spring/summer and I'll have to pack everything up for this and will not be able to build during the renovation period. /Bosse
  12. Ahoy Vikings. My A32A Lansen has been staring at me for a month now, since I was forced to break it up again. Unfortunately the fuselage halves slipped during gluing and I got a very bad seam. So the only solution was to break it apart and start over. But now I'm ready to take it on again. But first some repairs are needed. 514 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr One of the PE side consoles had to be re-glued, and the laminated IP also came apart. On Saturday we tried a new, for us, fish, a Gilt-head Bream. 515 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr We seasoned it with just salt, pepper, parsley and a dollop of butter. And cooked it in the oven at 225C for about 12 minutes. 516 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Very tasty, and it's a rather fat fish so I guess I'll be putting some on the BBQ next season. Yesterday Sunday I visited my local Toyota garage to put some new studded winter tyres on my new Toyota RAV4. My old Toyota Avensis Verso died on me two weeks ago. 227 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Not cheap, but now I'll feel much safer for the winter. And when that was done I did some more work on my Norwegian F-16 The main landing gear bay have been glued in place. 048 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And some back dating, two flare buckets have been puttied over. 049 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr Some black paint on the IP shroud. 050 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And I've glued the stick and throttle in the cockpit. 051 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And glued the cockpit to the upper fuselage. 052 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And the last thing I did yesterday was to glue the fuselage together. 053 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr I'll have the usual nasty seam to fix in the nose section. So I guess that is what I'll be doing next on this one. To be continued..... /Bosse
  13. Hi. I've done some more work on my Rafale M. I've painted the Hammers. 071 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr And I've also painted some sensor, and the exhaust to the APU. 072 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 073 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr 20211113_155023 by Bosse Persson, on Flickr One week left on the extension, but I don't think this will be enough for me to get this one finished in time, and I don't feel like to make a rush job of it. To be continued..... /Bosse
  14. WOW What a start Björn. A Finnish and a French one at the same time, what's not to like. Good Luck with your build(s). /Bosse
  15. Thanks for stating that John. I didn't see that the first time. /Bosse
  16. WOW Jeroen. That crane looks like your building it in 1:1 scale. Stunning work, /Bosse
