Slavo Hazucha Everything seems to fit nicely! Dietrich Mateschitz would approve! ;)
10. July at 20:18:16
Roland Sachsenhofer That's for sure! Besides that.... not only red bull gives wings :)
11. July at 07:18:21
Roland Sachsenhofer The base for the paint application is now created, in the next step the grey of the underside is applied once. Below the pre-shading I applied some Alclad, which was masked with masking liquid. This should give a nice effect of chipped paint.
13. July at 12:48:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Surfaces of both Mitchells have been painted by now- and the masking was rubbed off to display some chipping. To take proper photographs is not so easy because of the very glossiness after having applied a clear coat. Next step will be getting those challenging decals on the bows of these gunships!

Nathan Dempsey Looking great Roland. I can't wait to see more. I do love dual builds!
16. July at 14:01:31
Bart Goesaert Nice progress on these, these interiors are exquisite... Nice to see the one with the sherman gun too...
16. July at 14:03:16
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Nathan and Bart! Indeed, double builds seem to be quite a rewarding fun!
That's the gun used in they Sherman? Hell, that's awesome, i did not realize that up to now!
A fellow modeller told me of a befriended B-25 H gunner, who explained him how scary it was firing that gun- for those being fired as well as for those guys firing...... The B-25 seemed to stop in the air, the gun producing as much fire through the muzzle as through the breeches......
16. July at 14:59:01
Bart Goesaert I think it was comparable to a HS-129 with the 75mm PAK underneath it.. except that one was completely underpowered..

Roland Sachsenhofer Slavo, Bart, Lode, your words make me proud- and eager to get a respectable outcome! Slavo , your choice of words in particular is evocative- my respect for that!
28. June at 19:59:14
Roland Sachsenhofer Finished at all! I am rather glad that I could belly-land this stricken project.... Problems did not only arouse around the work with the Resin parts, more challenging was the Italeri-kit itself. Uff, done!
I have adapted the diameter of the cowling front to make the prop fit, scratched the Venturi beneath the cockpit and installed a "pole"-style antenna mast made of brass tube. Iliads decals are a dream to work with.
Thank you all for interest and comments!
8. July at 11:42:02
Bart Goesaert Nevertheless a build someone can only be a bit jealous at... nothing to see about the struggle, just a stunning result...
8. July at 14:15:13
gorbygould Excellent result, from what I know from painful personal experience, is an awful kit.
8. July at 14:22:25
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both for your kind words! I find it interesting that others have had similar experiences with this kit.
8. July at 17:15:57
Stephan Ryll Very nice final result Roland
8. July at 17:58:54
Slavo Hazucha Nice job capturing history moving on - The body and colors already in the Battle of Britain, while the propeller and other details still cary the air of inter-war aviation with them... :) A very nice and unique-looking model, I guess the investment into all that fitting & filling was well made in the end. One really nice piece you got there on the table!
9. July at 06:06:12
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Stephan and Slavo! Your descriptive language brings to the point what appealed to me about this project!

Roland Sachsenhofer First pictures of this double-build: The interior of both Mitchells are amazingly detailed, Accurate Miniatures parts are of quite pleasing quality- just a pity nearly everything will be swallowed by the darkness of the assembled fuselages :)
Therefore my efforts to get some detail are concentrated around the more visible cockpit area. Bomb bays are awaiting some more parts..... I guess one of them will be shown open with ordnance.

Roland Sachsenhofer I started this triple-build a few days ago; construction seems not over-complicated and rather straight ahead. The first three picture depict the interior of a Tunnan I would like to build as a weathered "Gate Guard".... therefore it should look rather rotten :) I tried to improvise some loose cables and wiring, some of the instruments in the dashboard have been drilled out.
All three models will depict Tunnans in Austrian service.
17. March at 16:48:52
Roland Sachsenhofer I am completely enthusiastic about these model kits! Accuracy of fit, joy in the meaningful detail and a quick assembly are "built in" here. I prefer not to save on bow-weights, because the construction of the Tunnan pre-programmes a tail-sitter. The wings are already finished, so soon the Tunnan will be recognizable.
21. March at 18:56:12
Maciej Bellos Triple build! Njce!
21. March at 19:42:01
Roland Sachsenhofer Yeah- triple build! Thank you Maciej
22. March at 09:40:08
Roland Sachsenhofer Now this project is finally done! The last of the three Tunnan has got to it´s destination.
The diorama is more of a side issue- moreover: somewhere a gate guard machine has to be, doesn't it? :)
I'm really happy to have produced a satisfactory result for all three of them. Thank you for your interest and inspiring comments, guys!

Roland Sachsenhofer That is what I thought seeing the recommended shade of dark, tinted blue applied- and that was the cause to re-sand the whole surfaces. Meanwhile I can report that it does work: the resulting blue has a certain "depth" where the preshading can play its intended role.
Pictures of this Hurricane will follow soon.
2. June at 08:29:46
Chris Greathouse I'm on for the ride... looks good so far :)
2. June at 08:37:50
Roland Sachsenhofer Chris, thank you for your remark!
The decals are been applied- with the final surface color has been put on before of course. The result looks a little bit dusty in the photographs but should be turned into a quite elegant looking plane I guess! :)
2. June at 17:47:07
Roland Sachsenhofer I am very happy to announce the finish of this very special Hurricane: the last to have been produced, one of the last still flying, a film star… and it played its role in a great love that should not be.
I guess this deep blue and golden livery of Hawker turns this sturdy thoroughbred to something really elegant. And have you ever thought a Hurricane to be a racing bird?
I hope you like the outcome!
8. June at 18:36:44
Chris Greathouse That turned out awesome! The blue is gorgeous!
8. June at 19:39:51
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Chris! The Hurricat really looks great in blue, I think so too.
8. June at 20:06:11
Gordon Sørensen Looks great, Roland! That gold really offsets the blue nicely!
8. June at 21:01:31
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Gordon! The Fifties had sense for elegance!

Roland Sachsenhofer Gordon and Patrick, thank you for your kind remarks! You are perfectly right: the applicated dayglo does look darker than I had expected. I did build up this colour with several layers, but even on the shiny alu surface it seems to be a little bit too dark to me. At all, I am not too unhappy with the actual outcome, even being rather dark it´s ok for me.
