Roland Sachsenhofer First pictures of the Whirlwind project: I did some further detailing to the cockpit area, which did look quite busy judging from original photographs.
6. December 2014 at 20:05:57
Roland Sachsenhofer Some new pictures. Without any sanding and filling this little Whirlybird looks still quite crude... :)
7. December 2014 at 14:44:21
Christian Ristits Nice Start Roland, I am definitly in!
7. December 2014 at 14:44:25

Martien Lourens extraordinary aircraft. Nice start ( wie immer) :)

Bill Gilman Nice work in the cockpit - which markings will you use?
7. December 2014 at 15:13:36
Stefan Fraundorfer I'm in too. Interesting projekt.

Roland Sachsenhofer Hello all! Thank you for all these kind comments!
Bill, have a look at the new picture: Special Hobbies painting guide for HE-J, the Whirlwind I am going to build.
7. December 2014 at 20:41:54
Roland Sachsenhofer The first pics show all the areas where I had to use filler; in the following you can see the Whirlwind having been already sanded. Next step will be masking the canopy and to preshade the surfaces...

Dave Flitton Watching this one

Bill Spargo Great build Roland, the Whirly looks like a pleasure to build.
8. December 2014 at 20:38:55
Roland Sachsenhofer indeed, so far... I am looking forward to mask and glue the canopy, hoping for a good fit.
10. December 2014 at 12:35:57
Roland Sachsenhofer Masking of the canopy has been done, so some preshading -and "pre-lighting" could be untertaken...
I will have to correct some minor issues, then "Sky"/ Gunze H74 will be sprayed on the underside.
13. December 2014 at 20:17:08
Soeren . Looks really nice now :)
13. December 2014 at 21:06:10
Guido Haesevoets Super Roland! I like this aircraft and you're doing very well! Following with interest.
13. December 2014 at 21:12:06
Dave Humphreys I'll be following your build with interest. I've always liked the Whirlwind and should really add one to my collection.
13. December 2014 at 21:12:20
Christian Bruer looking forward to the first coats of paint :)
14. December 2014 at 09:00:30
Roland Sachsenhofer Hello mates, thank you for these words! I also feel eager to see paint on that Whirly...
14. December 2014 at 09:30:30
Es-haq Khosravi Great job!
14. December 2014 at 09:40:14
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Es-haq!
A few steps further: the masking is ready for "Dark Green"...
After having applied "Dark Green" I will soften up the edges of the colours with my airbrush held hand free.
21. December 2014 at 20:08:10
Roland Sachsenhofer Added some new pictures: all colours have been painted- the color-edges have been "softened" with free hand airbrush- and the decals got applied.
What will follow is the sealing of the surfaces with clear gloss and some wear and tear...
26. December 2014 at 13:22:47
Marc Schimmler Coming nicely. Alway wondered how such a nice looking aircraft could be such a fail.
26. December 2014 at 13:41:49
Guido Haesevoets Nice, looking forward to the next update!
26. December 2014 at 14:39:53
Roland Sachsenhofer That´s nice, mates, thank you!
Marc, it seems as if the look was alright- but the engines fitted did make the trouble...
26. December 2014 at 16:08:45
Christian Ristits Sieht Klasse aus Roland!
26. December 2014 at 17:05:22
27. December 2014 at 00:40:20
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mates! Next pics will come soon... :)
27. December 2014 at 09:25:52
Es-haq Khosravi Excellent job!

Burkhard D A little gem in the making
27. December 2014 at 10:12:28
soheil moghisi very nice.
27. December 2014 at 15:08:55
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you all for these kind and encouraging words! The Whirlwind is now in the home straight: the surfaces will be finished with Gunze clear matt before assembling all the minor parts.
Till now I have applied a decent wahing, some wear and tear and, with black, brown and a shade of gray, the exhaust stains.
28. December 2014 at 11:45:37
Soeren . Really really nice work Roland! Looks awesome! Is this a homemade stand? ;)
28. December 2014 at 12:46:12
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Soeren! Indeed, this stand is "scratched", just for fun, depicting nothing in specific :)
28. December 2014 at 14:28:51
Soeren . Great idea for that :) Definitely better than my Lego stand :P
28. December 2014 at 15:05:43
Christian Bruer Good paint work Roland. The black and white lower wing looks pretty nice too!
28. December 2014 at 16:48:40
Martyn Fox Progressing well Roland. Looking forward to the finished model.No pressure :)
28. December 2014 at 23:36:08
Roland Sachsenhofer The end is near...
just a few finishing touches with the drybrush -and all will be done what I am willing and able to do in that scale... :)
2. January 2015 at 09:37:44
