  1. This is what I did to my B-52G when I built the kit some years ago. Sorry about the photobucket-logos, if you need better pictures, just let me know. HAJO Sorr
  2. Even though it´s heavily "canadasized", it still looks fairly aggressive to me! HAJO
  3. Are you going to work on the front window as well? HAJO
  4. Great idea with the engines! HAJO
  5. Nice stuff - all I need now is the 1/700 USS Enterprise that had been announced by Dragon/Cyberhobby several years ago... HAJO
  6. Excellent work, really like every aspect of it! HAJO
  7. It would be indeed possible to build the kit without glue! You can snap all parts together. But I still used glue, just to be sure, and to close smaller gaps. HAJO
  8. You may have heard, the Luftwaffe needs a replacement for the aging Tornados, and while the F-15 and the F-35 have been already removed from the competition, the F-18 (it´s unclear in which configuration, EF-18G would be good since it would fulfill the Tornado ECR-role - and it already has a "G" in the dsignation 😉 ) and an updated Eurofighter are still in the game. So, I will assume the EF-18 has "won" and will do a german Hornet! I already did the instrument panels and the cockpit tub. I realized that this must be some sort of "snap together"-kit, since most of the parts have some pin that fits into their counterpart. Details look good, though, and it looks like this will be a rather quick build. HAJO
  9. The Airfix-kit is really nice, but it lacks some detail on the outside in my opinion. Especially the surface structure looks "too clean" on the Airfix, while Revell has a lot of rivets. This is the Revell kit (I scratched a Sikorsky Sea King out of the Westland): This is the Airfix HC.4 Commando: This is the Fujimi: And this is the Sea King HC.4 of Dragon/Cyberhobby: HAJO
  10. Did you use some decal softener solution on these? HAJO
  11. Great result, well worth the work! HAJO
  12. I just noticed that the announced "new" SH-3D/G Sea King by Italeri in 1/72 (a reboxing of the Fujimi-kit) comes without the earlier announced Italian Navy decals. So, I'd like to throw in Italian Navy markings for a "blue" Sea King and of course some markings for a "grey" US Navy-aircraft. Italy: US Navy: HAJO
  13. Yeah, is the Fujimi-kit, now there are pictures on the Italeri-homepage: https://www.italeri.com/prodotto/2829 I'm slightly disappointed, though, because the pre-view-catalogue listed several more decal-versions, including Italy and Brazil (if I'm not mistaken),. [ And now there are only two US-versions (nice ones, though) and a Royal Navy version, which seems a bit strange for me... Ok, who will do both an Italian Navy and a "grey" US Navy-decal-sheet? HAJO
  14. Can't say anything about the accuracy (I'm no rivet counter or Huey-buff), but the kit itself is one of my favorites because it builds like a charm! HAJO
  15. Next project will be another "what if" with a high potential for "real": A German Luftwaffe EF-18G Growler: You may have heard, the Luftwaffe needs a replacement for the aging Tornados, and while the F-15 and the F-35 have been already removed from the competition, the F-18 (it´s unclear in which configuration, EF-18G would be good since it would fulfill the Tornado ECR-role - and it already has a "G" in the dsignation 😉 ) and an updated Eurofighter are still in the game. So, I will assume the EF-18 has "won" and will do a german Hornet! HAJO
  16. It´s done! The camo-scheme is hard to grab with the camera, but I like the subtle way it´s working! As you can see, it got some serious A2G-armament: Two small JDAMs and four Hellfire. The pro-longed nose looks very natural, I have to say! And the comparison with my other Tucano, that got some additions, but had kept their original shape: HAJO
  17. My Mega Tucano is finished! The camo-scheme is hard to grab with the camera, but I like the subtle way it´s working! As you can see, it got some serious A2G-armament: Two small JDAMs and four Hellfire. WIP here: HAJO
  18. With decals, but still without matt coat, prop and weapons: But I added guns in the wings! (Some resin-leftovers of a set for my Lancaster). Pictures of the finished aircraft tomorrow! HAJO
  19. Yeah, great... We had the hottest day on wednesday, fortunately it went up to 36 degrees Celsius only. Today was nearly "cold" with 25... Sunday is scheduled again with 39... *sigh* I show two pictures of the model as it looked yesterday, I´m already a bit ahead, just put on some decals! HAJO
