  1. 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 ..
  2. - A rather confidential machine which however was used operationaly by 118 TH independent Reconnaissance Aviation Regiment, nothern fleet 1943. - A true short run model well in the seventies tradition with rather well furnished photo etched parts most of them unusable owing to an awfull instruction sheet. and thick glazing as usual.. but very funny to built
  3. History From 1954 until 1964, the Royal Netherlands Naval Air Arm (MLD) operated three Sikorsky helicopters. Besides their registration numbers, also names were painted on one side of the clam door (Jezebel-Salome-Cleopatra). Assigned to either the Naval Air Station “Valkenburg” (search and rescue), or the aircraft carrier “Karel Doorman” for plane guard duties during launch and recovery operations. It has to be mentioned that they did save a large number of persons and pilots from drowning in all types of weather conditions. Being single engined and slightly under powered, they were unreliable. From the three helicopters, two crashed and one made it to the aviation museum. It was here that I saw the S-55 for the first time. I decided to build one in scale. Second hand I found the mentioned Revell kit many years ago on the shelf of a gas station in a little village for the price of one pound fourthy. The Kit According to the mold, it was originally produced in 1959 (USA). It had decals from Belgium Sabena and the RNLN. I completed the whole construction almost straight from the box. I used the Waldron punch and die set, together with Evergreen to slightly update the cockpit. For sound proofing the cabin and the area directly behind the pilots, I used thin foam. This you can find in the supermarket. When you order sliced Dutch cheese it gets packed on this material. It has (sometimes) already the punctured sound proof structure on it. Airbrushed with xtra colour medium grey and sky. Decals from the box were applied with the help of set and sol. The whole model was finished off with a thin layer of Glitsa parquet varnish. (70% methylated spirit and 30% Glitsa.) This prevents the decals from discolouring. The showcase is manufactured by ERTL and the street is from Evergreen.
