Project: Martin B 57B Canberra in scale 1:48
1:48 Martin B 57B Canberra (Airfix A10104)
06. January at 16:57:02 Share
Roland Sachsenhofer I got started with the Canberra! Obviously a kit from before the restart of Airfix, it shows meager detail in the cockpit- to be honest, nearly no detail- and urgently needs some aftermarket- or scratched stuff. What you can see in the cockpit is made from etched parts /Eduard. Therfore fit is very good! With the small number of parts in mind, this kit should build straight forward, so energy and time will be there to get some refinement here and there.

Clifford Keesler I know it will turn out great. Watching.

Roland Sachsenhofer Many thanks for these kind comments!

Roland Sachsenhofer My mistake: I had to improvise a bomb-bay cover from the kits spare parts. I did not understood, that the piece providing the bomb bays interior roof would also be used as the bomb bays hatch if the bomb bay is closed. The instructions are not clear at this point, so be careful if ever building a Arifix Canberra!
It was a piece of luck, that there are fitting fuselage parts for versions not being represented in this boxing which could be adapted- you can see the outcome on the pictures.
07. January at 12:42:04
Roland Sachsenhofer Airfox´ B-57 needs some filler and some sanding work. The Canberra is quite a huge aircraft- which pleases me! :)

Roland Sachsenhofer Hi mates! I primed for the Alclad-surface with black color, as usual, but this time I tried how "mat" black would do.
Not good- as I would find out after having sprayed "White Aluminum" on that base. It turned out to be misty, with a very reduced glimmering..... and the surfaces had got a little bit grained So I decided to sand with 2000 sanding paper; that is the condition you can see on the two last pictures.

In the next step I will use Alclads "Gloss Black Base" as a base for the metal paints.
21. January at 18:40:38
Clifford Keesler I know you will get it squared away.

Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you guys for your comment! Beautiful work, Adam!
15. January at 12:23:26
Roland Sachsenhofer Sanding started after minor filling work required on wing roots and the seams of the fuselage halfs. I am using the aftermarket Hispano cannons from Aber.

Björn Svedberg I'm following this! Nice cockpit! I really like the weathering of the headrest, nice!
21. January at 22:26:02
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Björn! It´s nice you mention the headrest, I like to work with pastel paints

09. November 2017 at 23:46:49
Roland Sachsenhofer Wow, thank you mates for these comments! Xldmstr, simple copper wire, twisted and enlaced for some areas, was used. There are plenty of pictures available to illustrate the twisted nature of this wiring.

Benoit Mathier Looking great! - and somehow these colors / weathering reflect WWII ambiance to me. What are the railings made of?
01. January at 21:45:14
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you very much Benoit! I tried to give the "Dockwagen" a not too exaggerated look concerning wear and tear. But it should be clear on the first glance that it is being used constantly :)
The railings- stanchions as the horizontal "ropes"- are kit parts being made of etched metal.
02. January at 08:29:33
carrey Looking very good! Are there any drawings, schemes, detail pictures of this beast? Will try to scratchbuild one. I don't get the idea how is it steered if pulled by one point only.
07. January at 14:44:54
Roland Sachsenhofer Hi Carrey; I am afraid but I can provide no further information whatsoever. For a short while I tried to get some information about that "trolley", mainly because I was interested in the tool systems obviously attached to its frame, but I did not manage to get any information about that. Sorry, mate- and good luck with you scratchbuild I will certainly follow!

Acki Hi Roland! Sorry I'm only a visitor of the museum. What about the film „Serengeti darf nicht sterben"? I have no idea of there is a look inside the cockpit.
27. December 2017 at 07:09:04
Roland Sachsenhofer Akki, splendid idea! Some of the film-stills found after a quick recherche show interesting views of their Zebra-Do. I will get the book and the Oscar winning movie! :)
27. December 2017 at 12:33:36
Acki Not the worst film to see!
28. December 2017 at 20:38:21
Roland Sachsenhofer Quite certain!

29. December 2017 at 13:54:14
Roland Sachsenhofer That´s really nice, welcome!
29. December 2017 at 18:20:30
Roland Sachsenhofer The "Zebra" build starts with.... rebuilding the prop! Revells airscrew looks a little bit ridiculous to me. I have a second Do-27 kit in my stash, so I used the second prop to get a more fitting shape. I cut out a piece in the middle of each blade and glued this as the end pieces of the corrected future airscrew. This will now be sanded into a good optical approach of what was attached to the real thing.
On the other pictures you can see what is provided to get a Do-27´s interior. That will be enhanced a little bit.
30. December 2017 at 10:41:24
bughunter Really pitty - no wooden prop :) But it looks nice!

Roland Sachsenhofer The Trumpeter kit of the "Wimpy" impresses with a great amount of interior detail and a plenty of equipment to be built into the fuselage.....
...and it impresses with a slightly exaggerated texture on wings and tailplane.
I will sand this structures down a little bit. Besides that, it should build up straight from the box- I decided not to use all too much from Eduards etched parts set.
The spare box will benefit from that! :)
18. August 2016 at 16:56:50
Rick Green The maritime version is distinct and interesting. I have only seen a few of your builds but I like them because they are clean and structurally neat, and not overdone with weathering, shading, etc. which is refreshing. Congratulations on this accomplishment.
06. December 2017 at 03:16:06
Lode Schildermans Hi Roland. Looking forward to the result. If the kit is already impressive, so will be surely your build
06. December 2017 at 08:40:42
Rick Green Oops, not an accomplishment yet, I misunderstood! Your reputation precedes you, however.
06. December 2017 at 20:14:08
Roland Sachsenhofer Hello Rick, hello Lode, thank you both for your kind replies!
Rick, you have been perfectly right! I have done this build for a while- and now it is displayed on "Hyperscale". Have a look there if you like: Vickers Wellington Mk.XIV | Hyperscale
