wOOw! Beautiful! 👍
Excellent work Roland...really a stunner!
What a revival! 🙂 Well deserved!
Wow, where did you dig up that old album? LOL
Thank you all! Very appreciated! 🙂
Awesome line and rivet highlighting, I can only dream of doing such fine work!!

Exciting in deed. Especially that I had the chance to see it land & take off.
I manage to snap a few pictures. I uploaded them for your enjoyment. (see link below)

Great model, clean build and paintwork! 👍👍
One or two pics of the inside would have been nice as well, just to see how it looks.
Many Thanks Alexander 🙏
Yes, I didn't take a photo of the interior because it's not really spectacular. Rather boring. Picture 9 gives you an impression of the cabin. The detail freaks (I'm not one) should wait for AM parts. Of course you can also scatchbuild all the cable stuff inside. But my lifetime is too good for that 😄 All in all a good kit, unfortunately grossly overpriced. If you have no problems with raised panel lines, I would rather recommend the Italeri Osprey kit (which is cheaper in Germany at least). Unless of course you want exactly one MV-22.
Great work!!! The paint job and the weathering looks awesome!
Thank you Tommy! Much appreciated 🙂

This looks nice, almost translucent. The details of the base are also painted very nicely. 👍
Roland - is that hand painted, airbrushed, or a mix of both?
Nicely done. Love the detail of the purple roses.
Many Thanks Mates!
@John It's hand painted.
Wow - very nice. Figure painting is one of my weak areas as I still have not mastered blending different shades without it coming out clumpy.

Following 👀 Oh that blue one looks slick!
Hmmm, the majority seem to prefer "blackjacks". I tend to prefer the blue "Merlins". I love this blue. Also, I've already grayed out so much ... Difficult decision LOL
It takes a couple of days until I start because I am still rebuilding my "Mancave". I get two more meters of work table "Happy"
I´ll watch this too! But I would prefer one of the other two decal options... 😉
Welcome Harry! Unfortunately, they are not an option for me 😉
At the moment I swim on the Sikorsky-wave and of course I'm in! Just checked the external reviews: it seems that it's an excellent kit! I have the SH-60 as Italerie kit in 1:48 (my scale)😊 but I suppose in comparison with the new KH kit I will throw it in the garbage bin…
P.S. Please the sea blue version🙂

Thank you and Welcome 🙂
Looking very nice Roland.
Taking a seat as well. Also seems to be a good time since you decided to change directions with your build plan. Definitely some excellent progress so far in the cockpit - landing gear bays as well, a bit sad that they won't be visible anymore. 👍
Thank you Clifford and Alexander!
Alexander Welcome and nice to have you on board!
A note: The project is currently running on the side and it no longer has priority 1. The reason is simply that the kit really sucks. It's the biggest MOJO killer I've had on my workbench so far. It started well, but now I have all the problems you read in forums. Since I hate sanding like the plague, the motivation here is very low right now. In order to get it ready for painting, a lot has to be filled and sanded. Also some panel lines have to be redone because the transitions do not fit at all (I am really not sensitive to this, but it just looks totally wrong what Trumpeter did here).
Nonetheless, I will definitely finish building it this year: giving up is not an option. It's just a bit slow going 😄
Some littel Progress: Got the wings ready. Was a torture to install the flaps reasonably correctly. The pilots are also carved into it.
I know you will turn it into a beauty.

@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!

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!
March 13, 2021
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.
it is alive 🙂
nice album, specially the tomcats 🙂
Yep! Totally live. And awesome. 🙂
Wow 🙂 I have to say I love your aircraft, but that walking tank is waaay cool 🙂
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!
