This is, as usual, a great pleasure for me!
A few new pictures show the unusually constructed hull glued together. Nothing is sanded or filled yet; but I was incredibly curious to see the elegant hull shape and so I took a few pictures right away.

Roland factory's is on fire!
Well done so far. Following!

A few steps further - with some filling and sanding - and things get interesting: Gunze H-14 Orange will be applied as the topside colour!
11. August, 06:48
Nice progress, Roland 👍

Looks great Roland! Interesting subject, have in stash too. Will be a ML-KNIL machine

Thank you both!
Look forward to the kit Erik; beautifully made and fittingly accurate- and we agree on the merits of this rare specimen! 🙂

Now some real colour comes into play! After two passes, the Gunze H14 Orange, lightened with a little yellow, is now readily applied. It will be exciting when it comes into visual contact with the NMF on the undersides.

Oh, now it made me consider buying one 😄

Hello Roland, I am glad that I am now also on scale mates and can admire your great models here and also comment on them. The B-10 is a rare example on the model building sector.
13. August, 15:43
That color looks great! 👍

Roland Sachsenhofer
I appreciate your feedback, thank you all!
Christian, my friend, feel welcome in this ambitious community of interested and interesting modellers! 🙂

The gloss of the clear coat prevents meaningful, good pictures- but I may say, next the decals can be applied!

A few status pictures of the B-10 slowly turning into the home stretch: the fitting accuracy of the cockpits is causing problems: here, filling and sanding had to be done, now it will be painted and tinted. The last picture shows scratched pitot tubes in unpainted condition and the two exhaust pipes made of drilled out cable insulation.

The B-10 has made it off the workbench; in the original as well as in the model, a truly remarkable aircraft! The orange of the top was difficult for me to photograph, in the original it shows a little more colour depth and also the subtle washing I gave it. As the original photos show, these Turkish aircraft were probably kept in a well-maintained condition, which is matched by the rather immaculate appearance of this model.
All in all, a really fine little kit! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed building it!

Very nice. 👍

That escalated quickly. Must be standing out on the shelf, that 'camo' is simply striking 😄

Hanno Kleinecke
Beautiful Colourscheme, exactly my kind of thing, what a cool looking result !
22. August, 13:24

The camo- oh yes, one look at the decal variants and the choice was made 🙂

Fabulous effect and the livery itself tempts me to buy the kit... Congrats, Roland, perfect work as always... and it was the remarkably quick build 🙂

Can we expect to see it at the Euro Model '21 in a couple weeks?
24. August, 20:57
Roland Sachsenhofer
Yes, absolutely!A few running metres of exhibition space have already been reserved 🙂 I am looking forward to meeting you!

So nice to see this kit build. Long ago I build the William Brothers kit as a present for my father, who flew regurarly in this plane as a sergeant mechanic in the Dutch East Indies. His name is mentioned in the book "luchtstrijd rond Borneo"
Very tempting to buy and build this kit (again). Your build looks excellent 👍
25. August, 08:09
Roland Sachsenhofer
This is a fascinating story and an almost obligatory thought to build this model! Let me encourage you further: the kit is really well made and leads to a handsome result without any annoyance. By the way, it is a blessing that Special Hobby offers masks 🙂
