    Due to the current Photobucket-Disaster many of my pictures are offline. If interested, shoot me a message and I re-post the specific pictures on a different hoster.

  1. Thank you! I finished to scratch the second gun-station: Parts used: End of a central aux tank of a F-16, a part of a scalpell-blade-container and the "front end" of the aft rotor-turret of a Chinook. The small PE-part is a simulation of an opening for spent casings. The whole thing is protruding a bit too much below the belly, but does look like the real one - except there is not much "real one" since all flying Cheyenne were only prototypes. 😉 After that I glued the canopy on and a
  2. I just looked through the pictures I have yet, but couldn´t make out any built in steps. I think I will just "freestyle" them, I do have some PE-parts left over from previous projects. HAJO
  3. I wondered - and maybe someone here can help me out - how the crew boarded this helicopter? I don´t see any ladders or retracting steps or similar to get in this thing, although the cockpit is pretty much up from the ground. HAJO
  4. Wings and fuselage are on: I also mounted the main gear struts, and kept them movable. It´s a bit toyish, but hopefully they will stay flexible and allow for a nice "look how smooth I am"-look when retracted. And here with the gear extended: It looks a bit like an eagle doing push-ups... HAJO
  5. Maybe 3D-printing will fill the gap here for parts? When I look at the list above - I´d love to have some parts for the Bo-105, but I don´t think there is more need for such a set than maybe a dozen worldwide. 3D-printing DOES require some work, when it comes to engineering the parts, but at least there is no need to stock these items, but do print on demand instead. I feel different on items that are not specified for certain kits. I always have a need for nice detailled Mini-guns or other crew-served weapons. What I´d really dig are pilot figures and sitting troops for the cargo
  6. Have you tried scalemates.com? They do have a shop-locator function, a quick look brought up three shops in the city. Can´t tell if they are "good"... HAJO
  7. A collegue of mine came up with the idea that the German Luftwaffe - if (!) they choose the CH-53K as their new cargo helo - may (!) come up with the idea to procure a number of smaller, medium sized helicopters for CSAR and SOF-support. I liked the idea and quickly got the thing done. This is the Italeri AS532 Cougar, but with a lot of stuff added. Miniguns and gunner, a "Kampfretter" (our versions of "PJ"s) and some other stuff to give this a bit more life. I loved how the Kampfretters "Flecktarn"-camoflage came ot, really proud of that:
  8. This is a real classic: The kit has been released for the first time in 1968 (only one year after the maiden flight of the Cheyenne) and has been re-boxed and re-released several times since. I just recently bought the latest edition, now by Atlantis, and this is what the kit looks like inside the box: Overall 36 pieces reveal that this is not a kit that can be compared to current ones. However, this leaves a lot of room for improvement and scratch-building, and that´s what I intend to do! My idea is to build a version that - if the Cheyenne wo
  9. Good point! Although there is less direct personal responsibility in the installation of a state-wide power-grid than there is in the decision to not vaccine or to not wear a mask. HAJO
  10. For some reason I can´t see any pictures. There is a lot of room between your lines, but no pictures... HAJO
  11. Cool project, looking forward to it! HAJO
  12. So, I can shoot you? I think it´s my personal freedom to have a gun, use it and shoot other people? Why should I be limited in my freedom to shoot you? Or do I get something wrong?? HAJO
  13. If everyone is told to not putting his hand on the hot plate, you would! Great! Go ahead! HAJO
  14. I can: The original handgrip is still in his right hand, but "upside down" in the hand. So his pinkie is necessary to pull the trigger. Looks very "gangster": 😄 HAJO
