  1. Hi! I recently started my first WNW kit, the Sopwith Camel with the Le Rhone Engine. It will the blue painted C1555 "Suds" . It will be mostly out of the box, but I will use the HGW seat belts. I started with the engine.  Cheers, Markus
  2. Hi! I recently finished my Tamiya Kawasaki GPZ 400 R. It is mostly out of the box, only some cabling to the front fork was added. I stripped the chrome parts and painted them (exhausts) or used bare metal foil (fork, mirrors) Clear coat is Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish. Cheers, Markus
  3. Thanks. As soon as I have the base completed, I will do some shots for the display case. Cheers, Markus
  4. Thank you! Cheers, Markus
  5. When installing the static discharger on the tip of the tail, I noticed that there was quite some paint build-up on the other dischargers, which affected their delicate appearance. I therefore carfully stripped them of the paint and repainted them, preserving their detail. I also repainted the exhaust and attached it to the aircraft. It is now finished, i only have to make a nice base. Cheers, Markus
  6. Just found this thread and I have to say your work is astounding! But what is not less astounding and outstanding is your detailed build report, which can serve as a great reference! Cheers, Markus
  7. yes, these are the ones I used. Cheers, Markus
  8. Thank you! In fact, I was surprised how well the KASL set fit. I expected some more blending work, but there was hardly any need for that. The only thing is that they messed up the tip of ther vertical tail, since it has a C shaped tip. But that can be easily rectified with a little sanding and scribing. Cheers, Markus
  9. Hi! Some other projects in the last weeks prevented me from working on any models. In the meanwhile, the gloss coat over the decals had anough time to dry, so I could do some detail painting, like the metal doors and mesh areas on the belly. The position light on top of the vertical tail was made from a clear sprue. For the A, it is more rectangular than for the C. The smokewinders were fitted with little ram air intakes on the bottom between the fins. Also, I did coat the black areas with a semi-gloss coat. I would have finished the aircraft yesterday, but when attaching the jet nozzle, I messed up with the CA glue. The glue settled while the nozzle wasn't pushed in the whole way. Luckily, during the process of extracting the nozzle, only the painting of the exhaust got messed up, the airframe itself remined undamaged. This is a review of how it will be mounted. The base in the picture is just a provisional base, and also the length of the acrylic rod probably will be shorter. I will determine the final length once the exhaust is repainted and fitted. Cheers, Markus

  11. Thank you very much. Cheers, Markus
  12. Thanks. Yes, it is not a cheap kit, but there are many build around with way more (and mor expensive) aftermarket than this one. Anyway, the decals are on at last. This was by no means easy, as the decals are very fragile and need a lot of decal softener to conform to the surface details. Also, they seem to be not specifically sized to the Tamiya kit. But thankfully, there is enough sheet decal material in the darker orange to compensate for too small areas. The only issue is that the decals are not completely opaque, so if they overlap, the overlap areas are darker than the rest. Now a gloss clearcoat will follow. Cheers, Markus
