Great work Roland
Nicely executed model and very cool presentation. Congrats!
Thank you Jos and Robert 🙂
Beautiful MiG and presentation! 👍
Thanks a bunch Sergej! Cheers!
Perhaps she would fly with electric motors installed...😄
Thank you Guy, Robert and Jos! Yes, they're big. The good thing is that its length still fits my sideboard well.
I'm just applying the decals. Unfortunately, they are extremely thin and "curl" electrostatically. I've never seen it so extreme. It's a fight but I seem to be winning lol
Keep my fingers crossed! 🙂
Hope they all go down well and see this big bird finished.

@Roland, I need to start over again and finish up to date what has been written. I have the first two books on tape, with Sir Stephen reading the story and absolutely love it.
The first scene, where he is dispensing justice in town is seared into my soul. I may not agree with his politics but he can tell a story where you fall into the scene with him.
I haven't been right since.😉
Oh yeah, the Dark Tower series is great.
I devoured all the books a few years ago, hmm... could be well over ten years now... good times.
And taking another look at the Shinden I realize that there was no reason to fear the raised panel lines as I did with my bird.
You did not use any panel line wash if I am not mistaken.
Whatever crimes Japan may have committed....
....were more than paid for by the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
It is time for all of us to move on.

Suddenly turned from work-in-progress-on-the-bench to finished-on-a-stick! 👍
Great looking design oddity, making a much better pose in-flight as it would be on it´s own legs! Parmigiano reggiano base with rising sunburst does the rest, a flamboyant swoosh through the finish line!
„ Parmigiano reggiano base" LOL
Thanks a lot Slavo for your kind words!

In fact, this purchase is made by my wife. We were at a model building exhibition and when she saw the cover picture at a dealer, the kit had to be bought LOL She's a big Anime Fan BTW. I now have the honor to build the kit 😄

Yea Baby, anytime. LOL.
Fear the bones!
Hey Holger!, nice to see you are still around.
So, the worst activity for me, "sanding", is now done. She's starting to look like a cat ...
Looking good Sir.

Thanks a bunch Daniel, Murad, Christoph and Rui! Cheers!
Greg, but like everything in life, I am now getting the negative side of its success. He's developing into a rock star diva, drinks all day, pestering the other Schwalben and shouting vulgarly at me from his shelf ... He's like "Ted" without a fur.
Fabulous photos of a masterful build.👍
Thanks Gary! Much appreciated!
Stunning build sir, very well done.
Thanks a lot Clifford! I really appreciate your words!

I agree with all above.
Excellent looking bottom - particularly the 2 "Weisswürste" under the wings!😉 Good you are doing an in-flight so all that tasty beauty will remain actually reasonably visible! 👍
Q: Would it be a valid last-resort tactics to shake a bandit by shooting the 4 Mk108´s and letting him fly into the cloud of 30mm cartridges? 😄
"Weisswürste" ROTFL 😄
Thank you Nathan, Jim, Clifford and Slavo! Much appreciated!
WeisswürSCHte, After all, I'm a Bavarian😉 😄

I just want to point out that this pilot will only fit in the cockpit (revell) with surgery. And you should install it BEFORE the cockpit frame cover.
Made very badly by Aerobonus in my opinion. Maybe it fits better with Trumpeter, but for the Revell, that obviously wasn't tested by Aerobonus. Thumbs down 👎

Nice, the first two in are J-20s!
Glad to see you doing the rounded pattern while I am doing the splinter pattern. Getting excited (even though my Trumpeter kit is still on it's way from HK on the slow boat)!
I'm following too.
In as well!
In! 🙂 👍
Welcome mates! Nice to have you aboard 👍
Michael, I don't start right away. I ordered a masking sheet. I also have to find out which colors I need first. I read very contradicting statements.
Joining the party!
Yeah, I don't have the kit yet even myself, so it may be a month or two before I start mine. We can work together to try to figure out the colors. Most likely we will just have to make guesses since it is likely the colors are really not any kind of established standard.
Title pic - stealth fighter, condensation, rainbows... of course I am IN!😉
Count me in here as well!

Test. Not sure of this Album is „alive".... Sorry for the spam.

Yep! Totally live. And awesome. 🙂

Very impressive work Roland👍
Thanks a bunch mates! Cheers!

Thanks Alexander and Christian! Much appreciated!
Very nice looking 109 Roland, well done.
Ahhhh a satisfying moment made better with amber spirits. Nice work. I like your paint work. I will post an FW190D I built t the cottage this summer. It was my first 190 in 1/72 scale. I like these little kits.
Beautiful job, Roland! Subtle chipping and great work with the paintjob.
Thank you Clifford, John and WhiteGlint for your kind words!

Das ist keine kampfwert-gesteigerte "G", oder? Ich frage, weil ich Lust habe, eine "G" in dreifarbigem Tarnkleid in 1:72 zu bauen, aber mir nicht den Aufwand der "GS" gönnen wollte.
Hallo Hajo! Der Bausatz ist meiner Meinung nach eine "G" die mit den Erweiterungen der "GS" bestückt werden kann. Ich habe mir aber bis jetzt nur die Anleitung angeschaut. Der Bausatz ist aber 1:48😉
Den Bausatz kenne ich, ich habe mich auch primär auf dein Titelbild der 85+03 bezogen. Deshalb auch der "Aufwand" der GS, das müsste ich in 1:72 mühselig selber bauen oder irgendwo den Nachrüstsatz von Ralf Trepkowski (?) besorgen.
Das auf dem Bild ist eine „G".
Jo, und ohne all das RWR-Gerödel und andere Anbauteile. Da wird also auch der klassische Airfix-Bausatz ausreichen.
Sorry wenn ich mich einmische aber der Stützpunkt heißt Mendig und nicht Mending Komme aus der Ecke
@Stefan Danke für den Hinweis. Ich hab den Bausatz (in scalemates) auch gleich korrigiert. Scheint falsch eingetragen worden zu sein.

Yep Roland I also had a Grasshopper as a kid. And now my kids have also one !.
It makes a lot of fun for the Kids !
So maybe I will show those Cars in a separat album.
Nice, I saw that there is even a "Grashopper 2"
Yep, as far as I know there are a dozen of re releases available of course with upgraded parts .
Do not lead me into temptation 😄
Of course Not
