....dies is the second Ju 290 built in parallel in German markings from spring 1945.
My ambitions to liven up the cockpit with scratch/improvisations are limited to the front, later visible area.
25 August 2022, 14:59
Wow... I can't resist watching this!
Nice interiors 👍

Thank you Cuajete!

The Ju 290 in original colours will stand on the landing gear- and poses here in front of the second, "flying" aircraft. All in all, the two aircraft need quite a lot of space. A lot of it, in fact 🙂
28 August 2022, 16:06
This is taking shape 👍

I am very impressed by your interest and feedback - thank you very much for this inspiration and motivation boost mates! 🙂
Thomas, in terms of colour, they will go in two very different directions, that much I can tell you.

....this also describes the condition of the Ju-290 standing on its own two feet.

A little adventure: when I saw this Ju 290, I noticed that the left undercarriage might have a "flat" - and that without any tyres! 🙂 The left wing was hanging down too far, I might have installed this landing gear leg a little too low, well, enough to cause this effect. As a solution I cut off the undercarriage leg and inserted a one millimetre wide intermediate piece - with wire at the top and bottom as an anchor. Tomorrow I should start the colouring of the Ju 290 in parallel with the second machine.

Now things are getting colourful: once the preshading is finished, there is always an opportunity to discover and correct mistakes and scratches. Hence the new filler marks on the C-stand of the machine.

Nice work Roland. Looking forward to your next update on this rare bird.

Jakub, Otto, thank you for your words and interest! Soon there will be new pictures; also of the second, "flying" Ju-290, which I personally am also looking forward to very much

A few steps further: the paints are applied to the fuselage and wings, everything is shiny and ready for the decals. When this is done, the next work awaits in the form of numerous small parts; but all in all, I am already looking forward to the final assembly!

This is extremely gratifying feedback! Thank you very much! At the moment it seems to be dragging on a bit due to an infection, which is slowing me down a bit for a week - but it's getting there!
Thank you all mates!

Great looking paint 'mottled effect', Roland. Looking forward to seeing the final result.

Roland Sachsenhofer
The decals are up, the surfaces are sealed so I can run the gloss down tomorrow to get to a usable appearace. After that I'm looking forward to the exhaust traces - a nice complex matter with the Ju 290!

Looking impressive Roland 👍

The Ju-290 is in the home stretch: a whole lot of final touch-ups and minor embellishments still await - such as straightening the aerial forest - but the end is in sight!

What a fantastic beast is emerging here! Looking really good

In that camo and with all these aerials it looks like a wels catfish (Silurus glanis) 😉
19 October 2022, 07:56
Roland Sachsenhofer
Great idea and comparison! As a fish as well as an aeroplane, in any case, a big hunk!
19 October 2022, 14:57

That's a beauty!

The first Ju-290 can now consider itself finished. This morning I was able to take a few pictures, which I would like to show you here as a conclusion to the construction report. In my opinion Revell has done a great job here! With a little care you get a quite impressive model of a quite impressive aircraft! The antenna forest comes from the corresponding Eduard etched parts set; whether using it is really a big advantage I don't know, but attaching it is a good finger exercise in any case. Thank you for all your motivating interest! Now on to the flying edition of this mighty aircraft...
22 October 2022, 17:49
That's impressive!
22 October 2022, 18:00
Revell may have done a great job, but you certainly have done an amazing job out of it!! Superb finish and fantastic photography
