  1. I built a model of the Finnair DC-10-30 a couple of years ago. The plane has always had a special place in my heart. Many times in the 1980's I flew with the DC-10's to Spain and to the USA . In my opinion it's the meanest and beefiest looking airliner the Finnish flag carrier have operated during their long history. Finnair were also the first airline that started direct flights from Western Europe to Japan via the North Pole. These planes were equipped with additional fuel tanks i.e. DC-10-30 ER (Extended Range) The maiden flight of the DC-10 took place in October,1970 and the manufacture of the plane type ended in 1988. A total of 446 these three-holers were built and some 40 airlines used the plane. The last scheduled flights were flown with it by Bangladesh Biman in 2014. I built the 1/144 scale DC-10-30 model from an excellent Authentic Airliners resin kit. There were no problems in building the model and only a bit of file and putty was needed. Out of the five Finnair's DC-10's I chose the one registered OH-LHB. The decals I used were from F-DCAL. Additionally, I ordered decals for the cockpit and cabin windows from Authentic Airlines. The coroguards, stencils and engine details are from Nazca decals and the turbine hub spirals from Skyline decals. I painted the white fuselage with Tamiya Fine Surface primer coated with Tamiya gloss varnish spray. The multiple shade metal areas were painted with AK Xtreme aluminium and Vallejo metal paints.
  2. Revell Rafale C 1/48 Normandie Niemen 2012 Authentic Decals Wolfpack-D cockpit BAM models intakes L'Arsenal Damocles targeting pod Hasegawa GBU-24 WIP in the faboulous French Fancy II GB: I did not use the big Ed in the end....will do so on the next! Fancy II Gallery here: togehter with the 2009 tribute Mirage F1: (thanks @GiampieroSilvestri ) and there with a Lybian Raider Rafale from some time ago: hope you like it! salut, Werner
  3. I already mentioned before somewhere in the GB that a Rafale C is missing in the line-up..... I just could not find the decals I wanted to use, so started the Mirage 2000 propotype first so here she finally is, decals included! as far as i know those are the only ones of a French camouflaged Rafale sofar. Hope that quality will not let me down! not sure if I will use all this, especially the PE is not set yet. sprues are here, all of them and some more from an earlier B model I like this scheme as mentioned before because it has a camo Rafale... I think AdA would do good in haveing some in camo.... at least 2 tone as on the Mirage 2000.... The real deal: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/61/Air-to-air_with_French_Air_Force_Dassault_Rafale_and_Mirage_F1.jpg some more enhancements: stay tuned!
  4. Airbus A300 was the first twin-engine wide-body airliner manufactured by the European consortium Airbus Industrie. The plane had its maiden flight in October 1972 and since then a total of 552 units were built. Finnair leased two Airbus A300B4's during 1986-98 and for some time they flew chartered flights to Southern European holiday resorts in the livery of Kar-Air (who were at the time a subsidiary of Finnair). I had always wanted to build an A300B4 in the livery of Kar-Air which IMHO looked much more elegant than the Finnair scheme. Since in the aftermarket there were no decals available for that livery I asked my friend Laurent Herjean of F-RSIN if he could print me the decals. Well, he answered yes and now, in addition to me, there are a dozen of other Finnish modellers who have ordered those decals from him. The kit is from Authentic Airliners in 1/144 scale. It's excellent as usual with perfect details and very good fit and there were no problems in building the model. In addition to the livery decals I ordered the cockpit and cabin decals from Authentic Airliners. I found out one curious thing concerning the cabin widows namely that the window row between the last two rear doors rises slightly upwards. This really beats me but the pictures and the cabin decals confirm this fact. Could somebody tell me the reason for this strange solution. I painted the white fuselage with Tamiya Fine surface primer which I then coated with Tamiya gloss varnish spray TS-13. The wings and stabs were painted with Xtracolor X137 Canadian Voodoo grey and the coroguard with Xtracolor X5 (RAF extra dark sea grey). The metal surface of the engines was painted with Alclad Polished Aluminium.
  5. In my opinion the Boeing 737-100 in Lufthansa’s livery looks very elegant. Way back in the 60’s their baby 737 was a common sight at the Helsinki airport. I built the model from an Authentic Airliners resin kit. The decals are from a 26Decals sheet. For ages we've seen the same familiar rudder scheme on Lufthansa's fleet. The cheatline has disappeared but the Lufthansa "meatball" has still stayed on. Now the company have renewed their traditional livery. IMHO its a pity!
  6. Another Fulcrum from Great Wall Hobby. I try my hand on camo pixel. It prove to be easier than I thought at first. Each section of camo was just taylored to the place it is intended to go. Some of the bigger ones were in two parts, except the Ukrainian Tryzub which is one piece to help laying it I cut both "wings". They are strong enough to stand a few moving - Had to change my usual photo spot owing to lock down, this one is not as good as my usual spot but I can accept it ..
  7. #28/2019 And another one finshed.

  9. Built in 2013, after the Stuka here´s another German aircraft in Bulgarian use. It is the GWH kit with Authentic decals, painted once again with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics. The model shows an a/c that flew with the Bulgarian 331 Air Squadron in July 1944. Older pics, done with my previous Nikon P50.
  10. Hello, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-88 G6 "Nachtjäger" of 6./NJG2, Fritzlar 1945. I used Eduard photo-etch, True Details resin wheels, Schatton antennas and markings from Authentic Decals. Painted with acrylics from the Gunze/Mr.Hobby range. The Hasegawa kit has some fit issues, which is strange for a modern HQ tooling. The fuselage halves need some filling and blending, the nose cap is over-sized, the wing tips and the belly insert with the guns don't fit very well either. The antennas are metal pieces from Schatton (http://www.modellbau-schatton.privat.t-online.de/). They are much finer than the kit's plastic parts. Since the antlers are a major focus point on this model I think they are well worth the investment! The colour scheme is mostly guesswork, as I've found only one conclusive period photograph online; this shows only a part of the fuselage section broken up at Fritzlar airport, Germany, May 1945. The markings come from Authentic decals, they aren't the best I've ever worked with. They break easily, have a yellow-ish carrier film and are slightly misprinted with 'shadow lines'. Luckily, this doesn't show after a couple of gloss and matt cotes. The camoflage was painted using Uhu Tac sausages: Exhaust fumes painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby "Smoke" with drops of Black and Dark Brown added: Delicate work on the undercarriage, adding brake lines and scissor links: "Schräge Musik" ("Jazz Music") guns on the fuselage spine: All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel, IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest. Greetings from Vienna!
