Ben M Looks great!
21. March, 17:53
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Ben!

Roland Sachsenhofer First three pictures: the problem.... Last pics: the solution- so I hope!

Łukasz Gliński The Ass-ender? :) Would be great to get the 1/72 one day :)

Ben M man I hate when you paint and then the canopy doesn't fit
23. March, 02:49
Roland Sachsenhofer Nice label, Lukasz :)
Indeed Ben, but... I could have checked before!
23. March, 07:47
Łukasz Gliński Apparently this nickname has been given by its pilots :)

Roland Sachsenhofer OK! That was my "time fuse" :) Took a while - but now I've got it: the sound of the spoken word "Ascender" really fits!

Ben M Roland, all I can say is, I've made the same mistake. I paint the canopy separate from the model, so they don't come together til late in the build. The last time, I used white glue to bridge the gap, and then did touch up paint over it.

Slavo Hazucha Roland building "something interesting" again! - you´ve hit the turbo boost button on your bench lately - B-58 hardly dry & decals are already settling in on the next build... :) Looking great already, particularly the instrument panel is very nice with all the clean dials!

Maciej Bellos That... was... exceptionally... fast!!! And oops, I missed it!
23. March, 15:27
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you mates for these very kind words!
The speed should not become an end in itself, but the curiosity is just really big with such an interesting and well made kit and drives it! Although, I have to say, now at the end the whole thing becomes quite tricky. On the one hand the kit is not boringly constructed, on the other hand the fit was not only with the canopy rather moderate,
The new photos rather show the final stage of the whole thing, I hope to have finished this eventful project soon.

Roland Sachsenhofer Some quick pictures of the finished XP-55 "Ascender". As I said, in the end, things got a bit complicated, but, as the saying goes: all's well that ends well :)
I added two pictures that allow a comparison with the Ascender´s counterpart from Japan. This one was made years ago from the Haegawa kit. I hope you like the outcome.

Nathan Dempsey Great finish Roland :) Great to see the comparison shots as well.
27. March, 13:57
Maciej Bellos Great result as usual. Well done Roland!

The Ascender is small compared to the Japanese.

Roland Sachsenhofer Many thanks for your very kind replies, Nathan and Maciej! Indeed, the difference in appearance and height did surprise me as well!
29. March, 07:43
Slavo Hazucha Very nice couple there Roland!
29. March, 08:05
Roland Sachsenhofer Thank you Slavo! Yeah, pulled the Shinden from the depths of my dusty cellar compartment. The comparison really fits- and now her soul may and can rest in peace...
