Björn Svedberg Really cool with the Zebra scheme!
10. July at 14:10:43
Peter Mollenhauer Very impressive build, Roland!
10. July at 14:54:42
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Sören, Lode, Björn and Peter! Your comments make me happy I did not give up this project :)
I would like to show you a few pictures of the finally finished "Flying Zebra" on its base. For fun I created a folding table and chairs similar to those often seen on photograph besides this plane.
Thank you all for your interest and your helpful and motivating comments!
.....well, the last of my new pictures.... I had to do that, I beg your pardon :)
10. July at 20:00:45
bughunter Roland, you definitely know, how to built models, even such hardcore kits May be I would have used white primer and paint black on top, but you managed to build a great model your way. And the last picture ;)
10. July at 21:10:56
David Funke wonderful!
10. July at 21:33:42
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both! I agree, painting white first followed by the black stripes would have been a more elegant way! :)
11. July at 11:40:35
Oliver Zwiener Wie geil ist denn das Zebra am Schluss - sensationell - ich liebe dieses Diorama ! Was ist denn das nächste Projekt !
13. July at 18:19:42
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Oliver! Next project will be a week off with family :)
....afterwards two nice Noratlas are waiting for me- and a SG 38 sailplane!

Roland Sachsenhofer David, that´s true.... :) Nice you will be following!
14. June at 19:57:04
Roland Sachsenhofer There is a certain amount of filling and sanding necessary to get a proper outcome. In special the connection of fuselage/cockpit and the wing was demanding- and still is :)
By the way: the Grzimek movie "Serengeti darf nicht sterben" has plenty of scenes of the Zebra-Do flying around or be used as a backdrop for scenes- that´s a useful source for the modeler!
22. June at 15:29:34
Roland Sachsenhofer From white to black in one step. After fixing several inaccuracies this black paint will be masked to represent the black stripes of the Zebra-outfit.
Well, a lot of work is put into this ancient kit, a lot of work is waiting... :)
27. June at 19:17:55
Roland Sachsenhofer Correction have been done on several spots- two new pictures show the fixed and freshly sanded areas.
Now the fun can start: masking the Zebra! :)
28. June at 20:17:29
Roland Sachsenhofer Best method in my opinion to get these stripes on the surface: cut out the pattern provided by Revell, position it on a masking tape, fix it with a masking tape and then cut it out with a sharp knife....
30. June at 18:42:42
Roland Sachsenhofer The masking has been finished- at last! Whatever the result will look like, I am proud of having mastered this task :)
02. July at 21:13:09
Stefan Fraundorfer Roland, du könntest die Maskierung so belassen, und das Modell als Tiger-Do präsentieren.
03. July at 19:17:02
Roland Sachsenhofer Ja, sozusagen eine "Tiger-meet Do".... :)

Peter Ibes Nice job on the Baby Clipper Roland.
One question though: does anybody know of decals for a civil Baby Clipper, preferably one from Pan American?
29. June at 11:39:47
Spanjaard amazing job on those PE seats... hard to believe it is 1/72!
29. June at 12:10:15
Ran Bar-Sella Superb work Roland.
You mention using RB Prosuctions" aero- wire - what scale? or what RB product was used?
29. June at 19:04:18
29. June at 20:05:34
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you all mates for your comments! Peter, a Pan Am Baby Clipper would be a nice project- good luck in finding one! Ran, RB offered aero-wires for RFC/RAF biplanes in scale 1:32. I once bought several of these etched parts.
30. June at 10:10:04
Lode Schildermans Once again an outstanding build, Roland. Your skills with planes are exemplary
01. July at 15:37:18
bughunter A huge amount of projects, one result better then the other
01. July at 22:35:17
Roland Sachsenhofer Your words, Lode and Bughunter, make me proud, mates!

Vitor Hugo Sousa think in using a metal bar inside the wings to reinforce, see picture nº 6 here Nord 2501 Noratlas | Hyperscale

11. June at 23:32:59
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both for your kind comments! Vitor, your beautiful work on this kit is my reference to build the Noratlas since I did see it. I would recommend not only the lovers of the Noratlas to take a look at this inspiring project....
12. June at 11:14:52
Roland Sachsenhofer A little update: the Noratlas get´sslowly into form. Engine nacelles need further enhancements and corrections.

Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mates! As ever it is a pleasure to be followed by you, guys :)
This Nora is projected to be build during the summer weeks, so there will be enough time to incease detail on the Noras rear end. Scratch build WC included...

Roland Sachsenhofer Finished at least! This was quite an strait forward kit and build- except the not so pleasant decals. The dark side did comfort me, thank you Bart.
By the way: what do you guess the the newspaper forgotten on the seat reports? Must be post April 1912.... :)
24. May at 18:09:14
Bart Goesaert Well the timelimit is surely very limited... but it's a nice car in all, well done
25. May at 15:26:55
Jens Hello Roland, that was really fast, if you compare with your aircraft, but the quality is just as perfect as the flyers
25. May at 15:32:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Bart, Jens, thank you very much for these kind and appreciated comments!
25. May at 19:13:27
Mike Kryza Hi Roland - respect. You built cars as good as planes...
25. May at 21:34:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Mike!
26. May at 09:21:24
bughunter Wow Roland, great result! Due to a holiday and work on a parallel project mine is not yet finished and I missed your build.
I posted here on SCM a warning for a pitfall in the manual of this kit - it looks like you fall in :( It is not possible to add the cabin later to the floor, the floor should be glued together with the cabin and the whole thing can be later mounted to the chassis otherwise is there is a gap.
03. June at 12:54:11
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Bughunter! I should have studied your WIP more precisely- you are perfectly right with the pitfall :) So, to all future friends of this otherwise most advisable kit, read our warnings!
I definitely adore your work- and so I am looking forward to your work!

Roland Sachsenhofer Here are first pictures of Noratlas double build. One will be a Bundeswehr/ Luftwaffen transport and the other will depict a Nora used by the Israel Air Force in the early sixties. The kit from Heller is, not surprising looking at its age, rather very basic stuff.
I have enhanced detail with seat belts and some wireless stuff from my spare parts.
The Bundeswehr example is going to be built for the museums exhibition of the "Traditionsgemeinschaft Fliegerhorst Alhorn".

Werner Jonczyk Hallo Roland, deine 222 sieht phantastisch aus, großartige Arbeit, die liegt bei mir auch noch im Regal, hast du irgendwas an Ballast in den Bug drappiert, oder kommt sie ohne aus? Gruß Werner
14. May at 11:49:53
Guy Rump Superb model, congratulations Roland :)
14. May at 18:46:54
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you guys... for motivating!
Werner, Du sprichst einen interessanten Punkt an. Kaum hatte ich den Rumpf verschlossen, kam auch bei mir das mulmige Gefühl auf: wird das Ding hoffentlich nicht so toplastig, dass es aus dem Trolley kippt? Mit dem hohen Rumpf und als Hochdecker mit dem Gewicht der weit ausladenden Motorgondeln ist der Gedanke ja nicht abwegig....
Um es kurz zu machen: es braucht kein Gewicht, die Bv222 steht im Naturzustand stabil und wie sie soll auf der Kufe und im Wagen! :)
14. May at 21:39:33
Werner Jonczyk hallo Roland
Ja dann ist ja alles gut. Viel Spaß wünsche ich dir noch für zukünftige Projekte.
Gruß Werner
15. May at 06:07:49
Hanno Kleinecke Was für ein Mordsding ! Wonderful work on this fat bird Roland ! Your painting skills are admirable ! The cockpit clear parts must have had an exceptionally good fit, as you put them in after fnishing the paintjob. No CA or putty needed ?
15. May at 15:55:53
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mates for these words!
Indeed, I left the clear parts until finishing the model- I saw no possibibility to get the cockpit "sealed up" for spraying with those four parts involved-and test fitting has shown the excellent fit of the main clear part.
Vallejos RLM 72 has the advantage that painting per dry brush and with airbrush does result in a similar looking surface. So I could brush-paint the leftover seams and fill them with thick Vallejo-paint.
