    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. Ok, this is my entry: A 1/48 A-10A Thunderbolt by Revell, a kit with raised panel-lines, but overall very nice detail. I have no idea when it was started, because I got a it from a collegue who bought the kit, tool, glue, paints and brushes to build it. Somewhen it stalled, shortly before completion, as you can see...: I will remove the gear to make it "fly", fill up all the gaps and sand down the mis-alignments, improve the cockpit, paint the pilot and re-paint the whole Hog in the three-tone-lizzard-scheme. This a next step of my ultimate goal to have every office of my workplace filled with at least one of my models. So far I had four offices (mine, a former office of me, collegue named P., collegue named L.) that show my models, this one will go back to collegue A. who gave it to me. First thing to do was a good wash of the Warthog, to get it clean from all the dust that had settled during the years: The cockpit had received some good, basic work by A., but I doubt that he really is a certified Air and Space Engineer ;) ... Way too much had gone wrong during his build. I gave the cockpit some wash, a darker color and painted the instruments with a light silver wash and after some drybrushing with white it looks like this: Nasty gaps at the wing roots...: I´m quite happy with the pilot figure (of cours I did it ;) ): HAJO

  3. HH-53C Questions

    Stefan, you can store even big helos by simply putting the main rotor off when placing them in a cabinet... ;) HAJO
  4. Welcom to the Rules

    I have a model that a friend gave to me. He started it years ago and then it stalled and sit on his bench for years. He´s no "real" modeller, since he just bought this single kit and all stuff he needs (paints, brushes, glue) and wants me to finish it. Would this qualify as a shelf-queen? HAJO
  5. I´d like to present you a rather unusual modelling subject for me, since I don´t do 1/100 - usually. But since this was the prize of an ARC prize raffle I just took my chances and built this nice little Reaper... The kit comes with two models and each of them can be assembled within a couple of hours. I only modified the gear so that it´s retracted, since I wanted to make it "fly" beneath a ceiling. The happy "customer" for my little drone is collegue P., who was willing to hang it in his office. But P. wouldn´t be P., if he didn´t had an idea, or request...: "Hajo, that thing´s got Hellfire mounted..." "...wouldn´t it be cool if the Reaper would ,fire' one of those...?" Me: Ok, at home I put one of the Hellfires on a long piece of clear styrene, added cotton for the smoke, done! "Missile away!!" P. says, he´s got to grin every time he enters his office - well, fun at work, my job here is done! :) HAJO
  6. Hello All! - Italeri 1/72 F-15 E Strike Eage

    That kit is outdated, but your model looks great! I´ve never thought that would be the old Italeri F-15E...! HAJO
  7. Hobbico goes Tango Uniform

    According to a german model-forum (which quoted the admin of the RoG-forum), Revell of Germany is NOT affected by that bankruptcy. HAJO
  8. Revell 2018 releases

    Yeah, just read from a fellow german modeller that Revell stated it would be Academy when they announced their news on a press conference. HAJO

    Ralfidude rocks! Love his videos... HAJO
  10. Revell 2018 releases

    I wonder what "Cooperation" is the base for the OV-10A in 1/72... HAJO
  11. 1:350 USS Carl Vinson Project

    Brilliant, as usually! Happy New Year! HAJO
  12. UH-1 Medivac Vietnam help needed

    ...and you could still throw in some pieces of the Italeri "B" or "C" Huey to improve the kit-bash! ;) HAJO
  13. UH-1 Medivac Vietnam help needed

    The interior of the RoG Huey is nice, but the rest of the model is not worth the buy... I'd start with the Italeri Huey, which still has some flaws, but is definetely not as bad as the Revell-kit. Just check here: HAJO
  14. FLIR / Radar Pod for A-10 N/AW

    Sorry, I´m no help here, but I´d love to see pictures of your N/AW-10. HAJO
  15. Hasegawa 1/72 OV-1B Mohawk - Options?

    Some in-progress pictures. So far I was mainly detailling the cockpit, adding more details as well as the prominent display on the starport-side. The big air scoop on the port side is sitting too much "up", but I won´t change it. HAJO
