Grumman X-29A | Modellversium

24. February at 11:49:56
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you for your comments!
In der Tat! Dieses Projekt hat mit Deinem inspirierenden Modellversium-Beitrag seinen Anfang genommen!
24. February at 12:49:33
Maciej Bellos Oh, I missed this one!
24. February at 13:06:52
Roland Sachsenhofer Only by hours, started this gallery this morning :)

Stefan Fraundorfer An airplane from the X-series, I'm very excited about it.
1. March at 23:16:50
Gordon Sørensen An interesting aircraft! I would have figured with the forward swept wings you wouldn't need much nose weight...
2. March at 03:44:22
Holger Kranich Oho, where is my seat? :D
2. March at 07:24:17
Roland Sachsenhofer Here it is, Holger, please fasten your seat belts.... :) I am very pleased about your interest on this project, gentlemen, because this Hasegawa kit is a sound offer indeed! By no means over-detailed but with very neat and precisely done parts. Yeah, Stefan, the subject of this kit is spectacular!
Gordon, nose-wheel kit part seems to be a quite sturdy, a one-piece affair.....
2. March at 10:47:08
Roland Sachsenhofer A first coat of "White" Gunze H 316 have been applied, later on it was sanded off on some areas to get a more satisfying smooth and glossy surface.
3. March at 11:58:28
Rene Scheiblich Nice progress so far!
And I'm also a bit surprised with the amount of lead in this one. Since I've got that one in my stash, it'd be good to know :D
Are you going for an ever so slightly weathered look or brand spanking new paintjob?
3. March at 13:27:30
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Rene! To be honest ,I did not think a lot about the weight needed- I just packed the openings full with lead. I like my models to have a certain heaviness, that makes them sit more stable on the shelf.... :)
4. March at 13:26:20
Roland Sachsenhofer The X-29 is nearing completion! Decals worked very well, which was a great relief after having read certain construction reviews.... This Hasegawa-offering could be built up to a really nice and neat representation of this exciting aircraft!
6. March at 21:20:30
Rene Scheiblich Ah you like to make your planes earthquake-proof :D

She turned out great! Sanding paid off
And I'm relieved to see the decals behave, I read those reviews too! :D and kind of feared for the coming masking job.
Beautiful plane...
7. March at 08:31:37
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Rene! Decals worked without any flaws- indeed, masking that complex appearance would be fun! Have un with your X-29, it´s really a nice an inspiring plane!
One of the few matters not offered by this kit are the two pitot tube near the canopy, I will reproduce them with plastc sheet- or etched parts- and needle-tips
8. March at 10:00:52
playtime 222 Marvellous. One of those futuristic aircraft that proved Gerry Anderson could see into the future :D
8. March at 10:03:21
Oliver Zwiener Die Dekorstreifen an der Bugnase sind ein wenig zu weit hinten , liegen eigentlich am Staurohr an , ansonsten wieder einmal mehr eine klasse Arbeit !!! Die vielen Bleigewichte stören nicht, ich nehme grundsätzlich auch immer mehr als notwendig. Weiter so ........ ;)
9. March at 08:49:21
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you both for your remarks! Oliver, danke für den Hinweis! Das erklärt natürlich einiges..... zb. das auffallend stumpfe Ende des vordersten roten Decal-Randes! :) Bei der nächsten X-29 mache ich es besser!
Your words of encouragement are very welcome
9. March at 09:09:19
Stephan Ryll Very nice progress Roland
9. March at 10:26:13
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Stephan!
9. March at 10:53:53
Nathan Dempsey Very nice build so far Roland. I've always wanted to build one of these in 1:48.
9. March at 12:38:49
Roland Sachsenhofer What a seductive thought! :)
9. March at 18:53:31
Dave Flitton Looking good! what did you use for the cockpit? That is not a Hasegawa OOB
10. March at 03:13:48
Roland Sachsenhofer Dave, that's correct. The kit decal was used for the instrument panel, the rest of the equipment came from the etched-parts spare box. The harness was taken from an Eduard set.... ummm.... "Luftwaffe seat belts ;)
10. March at 09:23:37

Lode Schildermans Roland, another proof of your talent. You plane builders have the luck to start new projects every 4 to 5 weeks. We, slow shipbuilders once or twice a year. I envy you guys sometimes
11. March at 12:55:58
Cuajete Well done so far, Roland.
11. March at 13:23:02
Roland Sachsenhofer At first, thank you very much for your interest and words! Lode, you point to something I admire in you shipbuilders: long breath, staying power and lasting enthusiasm! I try to learn from you.
12. March at 11:25:16
Lode Schildermans Thank you Roland, for this nice compliment. Most appreciated from a builder as you are
12. March at 12:39:07
Rene Scheiblich Hehe yeah this little kit looks like a relaxed in-between build. Good point mentioning the decal alignment!
Luftwaffe seatbelts... Hear hear :D
12. March at 12:43:20
Roland Sachsenhofer Yeah, this "Luftwaffe"- Grumman Hybrid was an ideal small project for in between.
Lode, I once have to try out my patience on a decent ship, way not "HMS Perseverance"? :)
12. March at 16:27:59
Roland Sachsenhofer This enjoyable project is finished... Grummans X-29 is quite a fascinating plane with pleasing lines- and this Hasegawa kit still offers a chance to get that lines captured in scale.
12. March at 20:19:13
Lode Schildermans Roland, excellent choice. If you build it faster than Captain Slow (me) you'll really persevered :)
12. March at 21:49:58
Nathan Dempsey Came out great Roland!
12. March at 22:03:11
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you a lot Nathan!
13. March at 09:26:41
Gordon Sørensen Another great looking effort, Roland! That would have been quite the masking endevour if the decals were unusavle. Now you need to make a X-31 to go along side it...
13. March at 13:44:42
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you for your kind remarks, Gordon! Indeed, X-planes have caught my imagination, but it will be Trumpeters F-107, which will continue this series.
13. March at 16:52:55
Daniel Klink Great Result Roland! Rare seen though
13. March at 16:55:22
Cuajete Very nice, Roland. Good job with decals. Congrats!
13. March at 18:11:13
Stephan Ryll Very nice and sharp build Roland
13. March at 19:18:32
Lode Schildermans Once a beauty more in you collection, Roland
13. March at 22:30:29
Casey Beckett Wow. Makes me want to strip mine and redo my decals. Very Nice work!
14. March at 03:30:39
Roland Sachsenhofer Hey, your comments are much appreciated! Thank you guys for your interest!
14. March at 08:11:34
Łukasz Gliński Looks great Roland, ultimate X-29 of all internets I assume.
I remember having issues with those long decals last year and some recommend cutting them in parts, did you manage to avoid cutting them?
And what did you use for the interior detailing?
14. March at 21:15:28
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you very much for this great praise! I looked at your construction report beforehand and was warned Despite or thanks to that, Iwas happy enough to get all decals applied in one piece. The interior of the cockpit was improvised from etched parts, the harness comes from an Eduard "Luftwaffen" set :)
15. March at 09:01:01
Soeren . Fantastic looking result Roland!
15. March at 09:02:21
Łukasz Gliński I thought you're gonna write about a unique edition of X-29 PE fret ;) but in such case, lot of respect for that very convincing scratchbuilt cockpit, Sir ;)
15. March at 09:15:55
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you very much for these comments guys!
