Ben Schumacher I use simple two-component automotive body filler, followed by automotive spray primer to smoothen the surface. A lot of sanding is involved as well!

Bernhard, ein Seaking ist auf jeden Fall auch auf meiner Liste. Sobald ich die entsprechenden Daten habe, kannst du gerne die entsprechenden Teile bekommen - das wird allerdings nicht in nächster Zukunft der Fall sein...

Christian W Das wird ein riesen Modell! Verrückt ;) Abgefahrene Idee.

Ben Schumacher Small update...
13. February at 11:14:37
Patrick Hagelstein How are you going to install the cockpit (or any of the inside stuff for that matter)?
13. February at 11:24:20
scalemates whoooohoooo! please change it to "print 2x" :P
13. February at 11:34:24
Ben Schumacher Patrick, the fuselage will be split again to install the interior. Tim, you've got my number... I'm sure we can figure something out.
13. February at 11:41:03
Patrick Hagelstein Wow! That's quite the operation! :o Knowing how good your builds are, I can only imagine that you thought this over and over to be the best solution.

Ben Schumacher Progress is slow, but there is progress... sanding and filling take a lot of time. But with the tail fin fitted, it finally starts to look like an aircraft.

Bernhard Schrock Fotos 13-17: was ist da passiert Ben? Spannungsrisse im Material? Wird mal wieder ein Hammer: hab mich eingelgt, in der ersten Reihe.
2. February at 19:50:50
Ben Schumacher Das sind wohl in der Tats Spannungsrisse, die (auch) dem Materialmix geschuldet sind. Die komplett auszumerzen erweist sich gerade als zeitaufwendig und ausgesprochen nervig.

Ben Schumacher Thank you guys, I'm glad you weren't disappointed when you saw it in the flesh! :)

Bryn Crandell Congratulations. What an amazing build. The carrier deck is fabulous. Did you build that as well? if so where is the build thread for it?
24. October 2019 at 11:55:50
Ben Schumacher Cheers everybody! :) The Viking go a gold medal in the scratchbuilt category indeed and two special prizes from Gruppo Picchiatello from Italy and Latin Militaire from Chile. The deck was built by my good friend Thomas Matzer; I just had to assemble it, to add my 3D printed padeyes and to paint and weather it. I have some photos which I can post within the next few days.
25. October 2019 at 07:42:26
Treehugger Inspiring work! :) Nice to see something can be done. Also nice model. :) I thought this was a wooden model or something, so I didn't see the rest of this until today. :D

10. October 2019 at 11:40:28
Scott Dutton Wow, every photo shows a work of art in its own right, so much detail. You wouldn't expect this level from any kit let alone scratch built. You are very courageous to attempt it, very patient to complete it and very talented to do so convincingly. This is true modelling at its best. I salute you.
10. October 2019 at 21:55:22
Spanjaard will you be taking this beauty to Veldhoven?
14. October 2019 at 21:19:07
14. October 2019 at 23:13:49
Ben Schumacher Thank you all for your kind comments!

@Cedric, the canopies are 3D printed.

@Spanjaard: I have planned to bring my Viking and the RF-8 both of which will be on the contest table. I did not register the Prowler. I may bring it with me, maybe I'll decide to register it on Saturday. I have no table, so the contest is the only possibility for me to display models in Veldhoven.
