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...

Roland Sachsenhofer I would also like to note that the Alclad tones were partly overlayered in such a way that the lower color shines through. So of course many nuances are possible.
20. March, 12:14
Slavo Hazucha Interesting thread - so now what are the correct dimensions/proportions? :)

Regarding hobby-philosophy, I too am much more on the "overall appearance & feeling + a nice detail here & there..." faction, but I fully respect funded knowledge & the drive towards absolute truth to the original.

Still, I personally focus on things I realistically can do - and changing complex geometry like fuselages or shapes & proportions of wings would not be on my list...

Italeri Kits to me appear like "Wine from the Supermarket" - the variety & quality range is huge, a guarantee there is none... What you see is what you get, have a look, pick them up, make your choice & live with it - some are really good price-to-quality ratio, some better avoided... :D

I stick with really liking the job done here, but now I´d really like to know about the dimensions...
20. March, 12:59
outback 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.
20. March, 14:23
Alexander Jost Despite of some possible scale "Italeri-inaccuracies", I find the results of this kit magnificient. Thanks, Roland!
20. March, 15:13
Fox One Thank you, Roland. I´ll go the easier way and use your model as reference. :)
20. March, 19:40
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you all for this lively conversation mates! And you for your kind comments: thank you!

Roland Sachsenhofer As expected, the Airfix kit proves to be a solid piece. Putty is necessary, however, which is also due to the modular design of the new Airfix kits. In any case, the Mk.XIV is already making a good turn!

Roland Sachsenhofer A few first picture of my new Modelsvit project. Parts and fit shows all that high quality I did learn to appreciate during my Modelsvit P-51H experience. Not bad for a "short run" model- if this still is to be ranged into this drawer!
1. March, 08:21
Roland Sachsenhofer This reminds me a lot of flying machines from the "Star Wars" universe!
I like these unusual and innovative constructions; the kit itself not only made a good impression in the box, but also builds comfortably and relatively swiftly.

Slavo Hazucha Nice preps! How much wear & tear will the early Spit get? So far it looks like a run for a decent boy with some fading, I like that.
3. February, 10:43
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Slavo! Only a very decent amount of stains will be applied, as I suppose those early Spits as being held as preciosity :) The underside is of special interest: to the rather well known black and white left and right side is supplemented with rudder areas painted in silver- that will look good I suppose!
4. February, 05:37
Clifford Keesler You are definetly doing an early one. Looking very nice sir.
5. February, 01:21
Roland Sachsenhofer Thanks for your affirmation, Clifford!
7. February, 06:26
Jim J Looking great Roland. Nice cockpit and build so far. I'm looking forward to the finish.
8. February, 01:31
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Jim!
This "early" Spit has been finished this weekend! I am happy to have a two bladed example of Britain´s finest in my collection- and I think, comparing it with an early Hurricane, as visible on two of the new pictures, makes it clear why the shapes of the Spit are known as so elegant and timelessly beautiful. . The Airfix kit pleases the modeler with nearly perfect fit; in some areas it is even similar to a snap kit. Only the clear parts need some sanding and filling. Decal do work great and without any issues- all in all I would like to recommend it in any manner. Thank you all for your interest and your comments mates!
8. February, 09:14

Łukasz Gliński Very cool build Roland
11. January, 21:38
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mates! The Me 209 has been designed as record braking racers to win the world speed record- in which it succeeded. Despite being considered as a new Luftwaffen- fighter, the installation of military equipment slowed the Me 209 down to the level of the Bf 109, so these plans were finally abandoned. For propaganda purposes the V4 received a fictitious squadron identification - including a snake! - to give the impression that the Me 209 actually was the new fighter.
So no military use, but a world record held until 1989!
12. January, 06:25
Neuling Thanks for the interesting infos!
12. January, 06:35
Roland Sachsenhofer Gladly! Often the stories in which the aircraft are embedded are no less fascinating than their appearance

( Und im Unterschied zu mir hast Du die Bremszylinder auch an der richtigen Stelle angebracht ! :) )

Roland Sachsenhofer Finally done! Even this Mustang has been tamed -at least. The most troublesome area of the final steps had been the "Malcolm" canopy. To short in span it did not reach to the canopy rails when shown open, what was my will to do. I found a solution in building up the height of the cockpit edge with plastic card, which was sanded and re-painted. It did work in the end but was challenging....
After all I am rather happy how impressive this thoroughbred looks when standing on the workbench -also because of its coat of D-Day stripes!

Es-haq Khosravi Well done!
20. October 2019, 19:18
Roland Sachsenhofer Your words are true motivations pusher and I am quite happy and proud! Dear "bughunter", it was a great honor and joy for me!
21. October 2019, 16:59
Gluefinger Roland - would you care to explain how you produced that rather convincing "spinning prop" of the in-flight model? Was it "just" a matter of fashioning wide replacements for the blades and painting them with a blurring effect?
30. October 2019, 11:11
Ran Bar-Sella Roland - great and inspirational build - as always.
I'm also interested in how you created the spinning prop effect
28. November 2019, 06:17
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both mates! I'm taken with your interest. What could I explain? In fact, I cut the transparent film into shape and then carefully treated it with the airbrush. It was important to me that the edges of the foil didn't form a hard paint burn. This is different with the outer yellow propeller seats - these should end on the outside with an edge. I am happy you like the outcome!
By the way- I have tried this technique on a Bf 109 some time ago, look her if you are interested: Bf 109 G-6, JG 52 "Barkhorn"/ Trumpeter / | Album by Roland (1:24)

12. November 2019, 18:37
Łukasz Gliński So, is it going to be an Australian one then? :D
12. November 2019, 18:43
Roland Sachsenhofer To my surprise I had to find out: there never was a P2V Neptune in Austria! (Nor was the danger by Danube-submarines ever great)
So I choose a user who also starts with "A": it will probably be a US- Navy Neptune with Engine Grey and White surfaces. The decal sheet of Caracal going to be used is already added to the project inventory.

Roland Sachsenhofer A few impressions of the interior of Trumpeters big Mustang. An appointee could take this level of detail as a first step to super-detail the fuselage as a whole; that´s no temptation for me, in particular because of the numerous inaccuracies in those kit parts. My efforts center about creating a somewhat more detailed cockpit with its visible parts. Therefore a astounding amount of atched metal was folded, painted and glued in place to get even this appearance.
For example, the whole roll-pylon behind plating and seat- which are itself etched parts- is formed out of metal.

Kurt Fankhauser Roland, Thanks for these pictures. I'm thinking about getting this kit. You said the canopy didn't fit? Did you carve down the cockpit structure to get it to sit properly? Also, you mentioned you made the tail hook assembly out of brass tubing. I would have liked to have seen more of that detail. You did a great job!
26. October 2019, 17:41
Roland Sachsenhofer Hello Kurt, thank you very much for your words!
This kit actually has its pitfalls and resulted in one of the most elaborate but also most satisfying projects I have had on the workbench so far.
The much too large cockpit frame was actually just cut and sanded down. This was a very unpleasant job on the semi-finished fuselage - at least I would do it myself on the unassembled kit parts if I were you.
In the gallery you can see pictures 8 (for the badly fitting cockpit hood) and 25 concerning the rebuilding of the V-shaped safety hook.
If you get this kit an exciting project is waiting for you. I wish you much joy and good luck!
