Soeren . You are building two at the same time? :)

Roland Sachsenhofer Tamiyas He-219 should be a joyful and satisfying build- look at that weight forming substantially the Cockpit!

Soeren . Nice to know! So two more GBs which I need to follow :)

Roland Sachsenhofer Some news on that bird too:
as with Revells "Uhu", Tamiyas He-219 cockpit is now enclosed by the two fuselage halves. Fit seems to be nearly perfect, the build is quite a pleasure so far.

Rui S Hello Roland,
Looking good.
Are you building them OOB?
25. October 2015 at 16:09:32
Roland Sachsenhofer Hello Rui,
thank you- this He-219 is build OOB, my Revell 1:32 version will get all the benefits of Eduards interior- exterior and brassin wheels set.... :)
26. October 2015 at 08:55:00
Holger Kranich Hi Roland,

oh you build it in 48 and 32?
26. October 2015 at 09:52:38
Pierre-Christian Baudru Another one ? That's great ;)
26. October 2015 at 10:22:56
Roland Sachsenhofer Oh yes! I am keen to get a good comparison between the two kits/scales! Have a look at the "big" Revell- He-210, construction of both are at the same stage....
26. October 2015 at 10:37:12
Christian Meyerhoff So, nun bin ich auch angekommen und zwei 48er Uhu`s bei Wings, Wheels & Tracks sind ja auch sehr schön. Ich hoffe das ich meinen pünktlich fertig bekomme. OOB sieht das Gerät auch hervorragend aus! Hast Du schon eine Idee für die Farbgebung? Ich habe von meinem Bausatz etliche Teile übrig. Bei Interesse einfach ne PM, kost nix.

Christian Meyerhoff @Soeren: One more GB You should participate... ;)

Roland Sachsenhofer Hi mates, thank for your words! Indeed, I got a idea for this "Uhus" finish: it will get the black underside of the example offered in the Tamiya kit.
I also decided to paint the wheel struts in "RLM66" on this example; obviously it´s hard to come to a final conclusion whether this colour or "RLM02" would be right.
Some new pictures of the building state: parts are just glued, no sanding or filling done by now.

Roland Sachsenhofer Next step: "black" underside.... it will consist of Gunzes "Gloss Black"-two parts- and "Tire Black"- one part.

Christian Meyerhoff Well, to fast for me, but excellent. I`m still struggling with some details of my UHU. But anyhow ... Very nice work ! :)
7. November 2015 at 18:36:15
Christian Bruer Very nice progress Ronald. I hope to get back soon to my bench to make some progress with my projects.
8. November 2015 at 15:39:59
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Christians for these encouraging words!
After preshading and applying the black paint, I sprayed "RLM76" on the masked He-219. After that, RLM 75 was "dotted" on the surfaces, followed by another pass of RLM 76, which should have framed the the dots of RLM75 in this characteristic manner often seen on German nightfighters.

Helmut Fraundorfer Looks great Roland. You managed to pull this camo scheme off very nicely. If you look at it long enough it feels like you are looking at a water surface. Great Job!
12. November 2015 at 20:13:21
Soeren . The paitn job looks awesome!
12. November 2015 at 20:17:11
Kerry Cox Looking good Roland. :)
12. November 2015 at 20:20:45
Christian Meyerhoff Excellent camo! Very well done!
12. November 2015 at 20:33:45
Clifford Keesler Looking awesome Roland.
13. November 2015 at 01:09:47
Pierre-Christian Baudru Very nice paint job ! Cheers.
13. November 2015 at 07:56:59
Holger Kranich Awesome paintjob! Subtle and stunning!
13. November 2015 at 08:10:50
Roland Sachsenhofer Wow, quite motivating statements! Thank you mates!
13. November 2015 at 10:21:54
Holger Kranich ;)
Interesting to see the differences between my Revell pit and this one!
13. November 2015 at 10:46:08
Roland Sachsenhofer ....indeed
- and interesting to see the differences between your growing beauty and my Revell pit! :)
Your seat belts look much more realistic, first I thought they where "textile" ones.... :)
14. November 2015 at 13:44:23
Roland Sachsenhofer A weekends yield....
Next station: washing and some "wear and tear" :)
15. November 2015 at 18:50:40
Rutger Boom Nice paintjob, I like the contrast between the black and the camo.
How do you get such camo pattern?
15. November 2015 at 19:51:12
Roland Sachsenhofer Sorry for the late answer Rutger: first I put free hand patterns of the RLM 75 on the brighter RLM 76. Then I narrowed them down with lines of RLM 76, again freehand, achieving that peculiar style of putative "dots" on the RLM 76.
Completion is nearing..... some exhaust stains still have to be done.
29. November 2015 at 18:20:19
Kerry Cox Masterfully done Roland, especially in free hand, and that ain't easy. :)
29. November 2015 at 19:59:41
Chris Parsons A work of art indeed
29. November 2015 at 20:15:46
Thomas Bischoff beautiful paint job indeed
29. November 2015 at 20:18:32
Christian Ristits This will become another piece of art Roland!
29. November 2015 at 20:45:30
Christian Bruer Nice work and excellent painting Roland. Hope I can manage it on my one in a same way ;)

Cheers, Christian
