The teaser shot looks superb !!
must have been quite awkward to blow on the prop and a take a photo at the same time ;) :D

The present is a triple? That will be interesting, because the first one i really great already
10. August, 19:41
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thanks a lot! Oh, I must have said it wrong; one of the three Taifuns is a present for my brother, the other two show correct - but also quite exciting - Luftwaffe markings. Yes, and then there's a Taifun in 1:32, so it is a quartet to be honest. :)

Erstaunlich - jedesmal wieder!! Great!

I really like the 'blurred' prop effect, Roland! Thanks for showing how you did it. The Taifun looks great, a nice clean build.

Three pictures of the opening of this project: very classically Special Hobbies Re.2005 starts with the cockpit. A mixture of rather rustic plastic parts and some etched part refinements give an idea of the narrowness of these Italian cockpits.

Thank you all so much for your replies! Very motivating!

JD, I did make a picture of my studio. A good stray light and a camera mounted on a tripod are important. For an optimal depth of field I use exposure times of sometimes several seconds. There is no way around a tripod.

...and so it begins! :)
The moulds of Bandai/Revell show themselves to be perfectly fitting and seriously meant model making. However, they do not claim to be masters of detail, but where structures are shown, they are made quite neatly.
I have made some extra detail with etched parts from the spare parts box.
What you see here is the first stage of extension, more will follow with the addition of colours.

A bundle of new pictures to this pleasing project. The "love of detail"- for example in the landing gear wells, is quite astonishing! Laser canons, landing gear, engines and so on are in the making as well.

15. June, 16:15
Neuling
Beautiful build in appealing presentation!
15. June, 18:05
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you mates for your interest and motivating words! I can only say that the decals worked excellently and could be handled without any problems with my usual way - so full praise to Airfix! The decals are applied on a layer of well dried glossy acrylic clear varnish, directly after application they are treated with "Mr Mark Softer" and afterwards with "Mr Mark Setter Neo". A sealing layer of clear varnish completes this process and releases the model for a final treatment of the intended degree of gloss and weathering. But I can guess you all do it more or less similar.

I skipped a few steps in the construction report - and there it is, the early BF 109D with the striking denture adjustment.
All in all a complex little model, which was a lot of fun and challenge. I am proud, if I may say so, of the small cone-shaped antenna insulators, which I made from putty that I pressed into the right shape with my fingertips.
Thank you for your interest and your comments, I hope you like Messerschmitt -Dora!

Thank you very much for your words on this not all too new project. That was quite an enjoyable build!

I'm glad this old project resurfaced! Congrats, Roland! Interestingly enough, this particular Skyvan, SX-BBN, ended up in Austria, as OE-FDI! ;)

Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you! Now that are interesting news! Did not know that; just watched the video of the crash landing end of OE-FDI on youtube.

Thank you Alex! A small correction: It is the Roden kit.

Very beautiful!

Sorry. I look Roden is not a gift at all too.
16. April, 10:06
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you both! The only Mach 2 kit i ever had the pleasure of working with was their Dornier Do 26. A most beautiful aircraft- and really the worst kit I ever experienced. :)

Roland, btw, how big is it in 1/144?

Juergen Klinglhuber
Great Build - super Roland. btw - my Mach2 experience was the Leduc RAM-jet, and it was....well, it's a cool aircraft ( ;) )
16. April, 11:06
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you Lukasz and Jürgen! I will measure -tomorrow :)
16. April, 19:35
Roland Sachsenhofer
Ad Mach 2: I agree, Jürgen: a selection of highly interesting aircraft, but kits that spoil motivation to invest time and energy.Your Leduc RAM Jet is worth looking!

I agree with you Italeri made some nice kits but these with this mistake is more an toy. Wingspann and Hight are ok. And thats the problem with these eggplane feeling. I heard often from these problem from serious scale modellers but then i checked by myself and they where right. The correct length with the pitot is 43,6. Italeri 40 cm. You can check the dimensions with the 1/48 monogramm mould and they are ok. Maybe it help you. But i see here that some not interressted on correct models in basic only to build someting. I am always happy when modellers say that kit is uncorrectable rubbish or not. Then you can avoid a lot of work for nothing.

Despite of some possible scale "Italeri-inaccuracies", I find the results of this kit magnificient. Thanks, Roland!

Thank you, Roland. I´ll go the easier way and use your model as reference. :)

I just looked at all those various aluminum panels again ....that is crazy good! I think you guilted me into upping my model game.

Usually I don't like to do this, but here it makes me proud ;)

Mike Oberholtzer
Roland, Just saw your B-58 on Hyperscale. That may be the best Hustler I have ever seen. the construction looks flawless and the bare metal finish is beautiful. The panel color variations are amazing. When I finally build my Hustler I will be using yours as a standard of excellence.

Your words just make me proud, I tell it like it is! Thank you a lot Mike!

By the way: A friend of mine reminded me how much the fairings of the two Westinghouse turbines remind of Corona-masks. Once you see that, you can't get it out of your mind.

Maciej Bellos
That... was... exceptionally... fast!!! And oops, I missed it!
23. March, 15:27
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you mates for these very kind words!
The speed should not become an end in itself, but the curiosity is just really big with such an interesting and well made kit and drives it! Although, I have to say, now at the end the whole thing becomes quite tricky. On the one hand the kit is not boringly constructed, on the other hand the fit was not only with the canopy rather moderate,
The new photos rather show the final stage of the whole thing, I hope to have finished this eventful project soon.
25. March, 17:03
Roland Sachsenhofer
Some quick pictures of the finished XP-55 "Ascender". As I said, in the end, things got a bit complicated, but, as the saying goes: all's well that ends well :)
I added two pictures that allow a comparison with the Ascender´s counterpart from Japan. This one was made years ago from the Haegawa kit. I hope you like the outcome.
27. March, 13:48
Nathan Dempsey
Great finish Roland :) Great to see the comparison shots as well.
27. March, 13:57
Maciej Bellos
Great result as usual. Well done Roland!

The Ascender is small compared to the Japanese.
27. March, 16:15
Roland Sachsenhofer
Many thanks for your very kind replies, Nathan and Maciej! Indeed, the difference in appearance and height did surprise me as well!
29. March, 07:43
Slavo Hazucha
Very nice couple there Roland!
29. March, 08:05
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you Slavo! Yeah, pulled the Shinden from the depths of my dusty cellar compartment. The comparison really fits- and now her soul may and can rest in peace...
