  1. Well, she's finished. You can find the build report here. Not my best build, but I'm pleased with it considering the small scale. This Resin model kit by Welsh is very nice with an excellent fit. I did add some extra details, such as the engine exhausts, various other details on the engines, the direction finder loop antennae and other antennae. I scratched the forward landing gear strut as I found the original to be too thick. The window and cockpit decals are also made by me. And as a bonus a comparison shot with my A330. The diameter of the engine intakes of the A330 is bigger than the fuselage of the Jetstream 41! Thanks for looking and see you next time! Regards, Martijn
  2. My newest build will be the BAE Jetstream 41. The 41 is a further development of the Jetstream 31, although it's more of a new aircraft then a simple stretch. The 41 is 4,88 meter longer than the 31 and can fit 29 passengers. It is a direct competitor of the EMB-120 and DO-328. 100 aircraft were build of the 41 (compared to 386 of the 31). Production stopped after 5 years in 1997. The 41 is still operational, though in Europe the only operators are Eastern Airways and Sky Express. Anyway this is going to be the build: The kit is from Welsh. The parts are from resin and metal. There aren't many parts, so I don't think the build will take a lot of time. I have to say the resin is very well cast, although the engines and wings lack detail. No worries, because with some scratch building, decaling and weathering, one can improve the model quite a bit. Instruction manual The flight deck and window decals are once more made by me. While I was at it, I made the -31 flight deck decals as well (the 31 is also available by Welsh, which I also have in the stash). Allright, let's get started! Firstly I have attached the metal nose and the vertical stabilizer. The fit is really excellent! The flap track fairings have been removed from the base (which went easier than expected (and glued on the wings. Added putty to the nose and vertical stabilizer. The model will be only 13 cm long. Compare that to my recent A330-300 build! I added a bit of styrene to the engines to give a little bit more detail to them I always find it hard to make the direction finder loop antennae. I usually make them out of styrene, but I find it hard to sand round or oval because they are so small. I decided on a different approach this time. I used small droplets of superglue on the fuselage. I will let them harden and then sand a bit afterwards. I also sanded the nose and vertical stabilizer meanwhile. The first priming round! Little bit of sanding of the direction finder loop antennae and after priming it a second time, it does give me the result I was looking for (although not really visible on the picture) I used a small straw to make the engine exhausts The result after priming. And that's the status at the moment! If all goes whel, she should be finished before the end of the year!
  3. What girl doesn't like Cosmo? No not that kind; get your minds out of the gutter and put the magazine back on the rack. This kind: This is the 1/72 Welsh/Proteus Canadair Cosmopolitan, with two different RCAF schemes. Inside the box you find a bag of resin, some white metal detail parts and a vac fuselage. Decals And typically basic Welsh style instruction sheets The vac parts and the resin parts
  4. I finally found some time to start this build. This is going to be my first WIP and my very first mixed media kit so let's hope I don't mess this up... Let's see what we have in the box: The overall level of detail is pretty good with fine panel lines on both the fuselage and the resin parts. The metal castings are also quite decent, though I'll have to find replacements for the NLG wheels... Decals are from TwoSix with a separate tiny sheet containing the white markings.
  5. Now that my aftermarket engines have arrived from Welsh Models I can finally do a side-by side comparison. While I do not make any definitive claim that the Welsh Models engines are 100% accurate, they are most definitely smaller than the Roden kit engines. I'll leave this image with you and let you make the judgement which suits you best. The Welsh engine is above the Roden. It's interesting how the two manufacturers treat the aft pylon extension. It's a shame that the Roden engines are so large, because otherwise they're very nicely detailed.
  6. This is the most difficult I ever built so far. Assembling vacform for me is very hard. Lots of sanding and modifications I applied.Be the judge of the result. I decided to discotinue at the moment building this model.
