The new project in 1:144 has taken its start; no clear parts on this, I will paint them over and use decals instead.

Not even the cockpit glazing? Following

No, not even these... I'm quite definite about that. The Austrian markings will look better that way.

And which version? The early smooth nose or the pimpled one?

A smooth nose one, if you follow this link: the fifth from above! caracalmodels.com/cd144014.html

I have two in the stash. It may be too late, but there ARE wing spars in the kit. For some reason they do not call them out in the directions. Makes fitting the wings much easier from what I have read.

Roland Sachsenhofer
Donald, thank you; I recognized them, but I'll drill a hole and attach a brass tube to stabilize the wings. That seemed easier to me than cutting rectangular holes for the wing-spars through the thick plastic of the fuselage half.

Very cool choice of livery 👍

I have those decals as well. I am torn between doing 2,3 and 4. One of those will not get done. LOL

Not a bad idea with the brass rod. I will keep that in mind once I get around to doing one.

I am glad that marking and approach meet with your appreciation! Soon there will be new pictures

Is it for laughs or for tears? The fit on the engine nacelles seems rather gruesome. I use the cyanoacrylate gel as filler, which is sanded after curing.

From grey to glossy black: the Globemaster is now ready for the first layer of Alclad - and for a few touch-ups, the need for which makes the glossy finish visible!

Looks grand in black

Indeed! As it does in Alclad "White Aluminum", managed to get a first layer of it on the surfaces today.

The Alclad surfaces have been finished so far, next step will see wingtips and tailplane being painted with "dayglow". I am really looking forward to that!

That was a lot of masking! Came out awesome!

Thanky xou Donald!

whooooo shiny!

Indeed! Now it is time for some white and a frop of dayglow 🙂

Surfaces have been prepared for decals. Meanwhile I am dealing with the propellers, some rather delicate work with masking, paint and decals! 🙂

Wow! Looks good 🙂

Great Roland the panels look really realistic..wow
22 May 2020, 10:28
what a puzzle, WOW, really impressive what can be seen after unmasking 👍
22 May 2020, 10:41
What a colourful mix of materials as sheet metal, well done! Which orange paint did you use? Looks nice 👍
22 May 2020, 11:18
Roland Sachsenhofer
Many thanks for your feedback! It is a pleasure and motivates! For the "Dayglow" I used Gunze H-14 "Orange" after having it compared it with Vallejo's "Dayglow". The Gunze color seems to me to be more appropriate and in any case much less capricious in its application.
24 May 2020, 07:34
Thanks you Roland! I want to build a Tornado in Flight Test livery, the decal and the kit are in my stash already, but I'm not sure about the orange color 🙂 [img1]
24 May 2020, 09:24
Roland Sachsenhofer
Very cool! I am looking g forward to that!!
My "orange past" includes, for example, the Saab Safir or the VJ 101C X-1, where Vallejo's "Dayglow" on an acrylic base was used.
If you want, take a look at it for comparison. To me, they both seem both quite similar and useful when it comes to getting a bright orange.

A few pictures with all the decals and an sealing coat of Gunze clear on. I am hopeful to get that little giant on it´s own feet this week.

Not only a A380 is a doubledeck 🙂 You selected the nicest possible marking 👍

I second that, great markings and paint job!

Fantastic work Roland - as usual😉

Thanks for your kind and generous feedback mates! Now it is mainly a matter of joining the subassemblies together- and of getting exhaust stains in a scale appropriate way on the cowlings!

That' s it! The little giant made it to the finish line - and he gave me a lot of pleasure. I would like to point out the three self-made windshield wipers 🙂 They are among the finest that my tweezers have ever moved. The combination of the Roden model and Caracal decals has proved to be a very good one. I am glad about the colourful version; I hope you like the pictures, too.
Thanks for your interest and the really very motivating comments!

Top notch NMF and a beautiful livery ! All these very accurate little panels must have cost you a lot of sweat.......

Lovely, looks very Fallout-ish to me (gamers will get it😉 ), wondering how big it is after completion.

Alex Rodionov
Excellent model.

Most impressive finish Roland👍. Excellent job mate!

Thank you Lukasz, Alex and Daniel for these kind comments! Pencil and coin are intended to give a impression of how big it is- or are you interested in length in centimeters Lukasz?
27 May 2020, 13:21
Łukasz Gliński
Thanks, I think this is good enough. Somehow I thought it would be much bigger 🙂
27 May 2020, 13:43
I'm breaking down - wipers in 1:144! Geht's noch?😉😉
27 May 2020, 14:02
Roland Sachsenhofer
That sounds good, Lukasz- thanks! 🙂 🙂 Dear Bughunter, I am sure that you of all people can answer this question! 🙂
