bughunter EinsZuVierundzwanzig? What a bird!
6. August 2019 at 19:19:18
Slavo Hazucha I have never done anything in such a big scale :D I guess you can almost test-sit the cockpit in 1:24... Looking good, expectations connected to build owners reputation are being met... ;) watching!
6. August 2019 at 19:33:00
Roland Sachsenhofer Indeed! This will be a rather impressive bird(s)- merely with its size.
Charming words, Slavo- and very motivating ones! :)
8. August 2019 at 08:45:09
Stephan Ryll Very nice progress on that big thing
8. August 2019 at 17:48:45
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Stephan; those kits are a fun to deal with ;)
8. August 2019 at 18:20:56
Roland Sachsenhofer My little flock of Mustangs is still growing :) I will have to bent the wings careful to form a slight resemble of the Mustangs dihedral. The unaltered kit shows wings completely even- that does not look good!
12. August 2019 at 10:24:00
Roland Sachsenhofer "The more danger, the more honor".... that's the most positive thing I can think of :))
13. August 2019 at 14:59:44
Slavo Hazucha When there is no suitable group build around, Roland creates one at home... :D Nice work-in progress collection and progress - you will be able to do some cool fake-perspective shots with them once done in the different scales... :) How were the model monkey parts? Is the material easy to work with?
13. August 2019 at 15:05:15
John Ballman Looking Awesome! You're having fun with this Old Airfix Classic, Keep up the great work.
13. August 2019 at 15:05:46
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Slavo and John! Splendid idea with the fake-perspective, Slavo, I will give it a try!
Model monkeys parts are a joy to work with; I will present pictures of the cowling and exhausts as soon as I have mounted them, tomorrow perhaps. Well, the fit is impressive anyway.

Roland Sachsenhofer Both Mustangs have taken a few steps further... On one I succeeded in finishing all the overflowing filling and sanding; this one is the topic of the new pictures. I guess I will be able to apply the black priming for the first coat of Alclad tomorrow. The second P-51 is still awaiting sanding of the fuselage; the wings have been treated.

Guy Rump Looking great so far Roland :)
14. September 2019 at 19:07:10
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Guy!
14. September 2019 at 19:23:43
Roland Sachsenhofer A late night update: a few pictures of the surfaces being in the progress of getting their final appearance.
21. September 2019 at 19:37:24
Bart Goesaert nice work on these giants...
27. September 2019 at 15:43:37
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Bart, some new progress pics will further illustrate this rather demanding projects soon.
28. September 2019 at 20:18:56
Björn Svedberg How did I miss this?! Looking good, Roland! Taking a seat. :)
29. September 2019 at 08:34:11
Tim Heimer Looking good!
29. September 2019 at 14:14:47
Slavo Hazucha Nice progress getting the metal on the big 'stang!
29. September 2019 at 16:05:51
Roland Sachsenhofer Your words have motivated me through this weekend- here are a few new pictures, showing the actual status of both Mustangs. I am quite keen to get the "CAM" decals on the bare metal one. It will display the markings of "Skeeters Scooter", a colourful P-51 flown by pilot McAlevy in 1944.
29. September 2019 at 18:23:45
Stephan Ryll Very nice progress Roland
29. September 2019 at 18:52:50
Slavo Hazucha After following the Gate-guard Tunnan, I definitely keep my eye on any NMF work coming from your corner - the base looks superb, really looking forward to the further treatment!
29. September 2019 at 19:01:49
Bart Goesaert nice camo on both...
30. September 2019 at 06:11:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Your words are a pleasure to me- thank you Stephan, Slavo and Bart!
"Skeeter´s Scooter" turns into the home straight. There is not left much to do- except the prop and some finishing touches.
6. October 2019 at 14:07:53
Tim Heimer Nice work! Keep it up!
6. October 2019 at 16:32:51
bughunter A Mustang is a nice bird, so this model due to capable hands too
6. October 2019 at 18:30:08
Augie I love how these two are coming out, making me want to get going on my two. Perhaps once the aggressor group build is done
6. October 2019 at 18:32:00
Munkyslut Watching
6. October 2019 at 19:06:37
Bob Hall I'm a Lover of the Pony ! Whether it has wings,wheels or hooves ! Beautiful !
6. October 2019 at 19:23:40
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you all mates and guys! That´s motivating- and I actually need some kick in the.... to get these two done :)
7. October 2019 at 05:32:25
Jim J Looks great so far!
7. October 2019 at 06:06:11
Slavo Hazucha Can´t imagine that looking at the model is not kicking enough - in case it is not, be aware that we want to see it finished in a group pic with the little bro´s so keep it coming! ;)
7. October 2019 at 08:36:49
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Jim and Slavo! Actually I am looking forward to this gathering of Mustangs, Slavo :) Even better: a few more should join in in the foreseeable future: Revells 1:32 early P-51D is at the start- as a Trumpeter P-51B of the same scale.
8. October 2019 at 08:43:44
Slavo Hazucha Nice! I´ve got the Revell 1:32 in stash for a future "Cadillac of the Skies" scene flyby vignette from the "Empire of the Sun" movie... Appears to be a rather nice kit, will probably just build it OOB + pilot... Some time in the 2020´ies :D
8. October 2019 at 09:17:18
Roland Sachsenhofer A great movie and and a impressive scene Slavo! Good choice- I am looking forward to that!
10. October 2019 at 18:25:19
Roland Sachsenhofer The first Mustang was tamed- or should I say finally mastered?- the second one will be saddled this weekend and should be presentable as well in a few days.
I hope you like the pictures of "Scooters Skeeter" - for me two of these old Airfix kit-veterans are definitely enough :)
12. October 2019 at 12:06:17
Guy Rump Great result Roland, very impressive. :)
13. October 2019 at 07:14:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you very much Guy!
13. October 2019 at 08:42:59
Roland Sachsenhofer .... and here comes the second one: "Edmonton´s Special" has been done in parallel with wheels up, with no aftermarket stuff but some- so I hope- home made improvements. Turning prop has been simulated with transparent sheet and airbrush.
I hope you like it!
13. October 2019 at 13:44:18
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Rob!
13. October 2019 at 15:44:50
Nathan Dempsey Nice work Roland. Love the markings and the prop looks very realistic.
13. October 2019 at 15:50:55
Munkyslut I can only dream of pulling off that level of detail & finish, an inspiration, thanks for sharing!
13. October 2019 at 16:16:58
Augie Roland, that is fantastic!
13. October 2019 at 16:34:53
Daniel Klink What a fantastic work and Presentation Roland.
Just wow
13. October 2019 at 16:43:03

13. October 2019 at 16:59:06
Jim J Outstanding! Well done. Very cool idea and execution on the prop.
13. October 2019 at 18:09:05
Tim Heimer I have to agree with Jim J !! Beautifully done!
13. October 2019 at 18:12:51
Christian Bruer Excellent

13. October 2019 at 19:01:35
Björn Svedberg Great looking model and beautiful pictures!
13. October 2019 at 19:12:43
Roland Sachsenhofer Thanks to all of you mates for these great and enjoyable comments! That makes me happy - and will continue to make me a little more experimental!
13. October 2019 at 19:36:50
Spanjaard Great paint job
14. October 2019 at 17:04:07
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mate!
15. October 2019 at 08:36:29

15. October 2019 at 08:38:51
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Dominik- das freut mich sehr!
15. October 2019 at 08:41:48
Bart Goesaert that is a nice thing with the prop, had to look a few times how you did it... looks much better than any prop-blur seen till now. Also the models are exquisite...
17. October 2019 at 13:03:30
Nathan Dempsey Hurry up and patent that idea Roland!
17. October 2019 at 15:29:33
Spanjaard really nice prop indeed
17. October 2019 at 21:28:04
Holger Kranich Ganz schön Mustanglastig bei Dir. Hast Gefallen gefunden, wa?
18. October 2019 at 07:28:55
bughunter It was a great pleasure and honour for me to meet the builder amidst his models in Ried The pictures are great, but in real the birds are looking even better!
20. October 2019 at 17:23:13
Es-haq Khosravi Well done!
20. October 2019 at 19:18:14
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 at 16:59:07
Ralf Pätzold 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 at 11:11:10
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 at 06:17:47
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)
30. November 2019 at 10:31:22
Ralf Pätzold Thanks, Roland - "transparent film" is the clue I was looking for. ;)
