First pictures show the cockpits of the two SRA-1s supported by the kit's own 3d decals; well, despite everything, not a stellar hour of model making! 🙂 But the fuselage and the exterior already look good, in my opinion. There is a lot to putty, as the pictures also reveal. Well, a start has been made!

Feel welcome! As of today, putty is the order of the day...

Interesting... Taking a seat 👍

A really interesting aircraft, worth recreating in any form!

Snapshot during a grinding break: work has to be done in stages here, a lot to do 🙂 But hopefully it will be worth it, the extremely unusual shapes of this jet flying boat are already emerging!

A h yes, that jet-powered flying boat... Didn´t know there was an injection kit of that flying oddity... I am taking a seat 👍

Yes, just released by Xtrakit- with a little filler and sanding needed, but otherwise not bad at all! Thank you both for your interest!

Thank you Dick!
I just applied the glossy black of the primer for Alclad "White Aluminum". It's going to be exciting!

I recognized the kit the first time at the Telford model show last week - unfortunattly my budget was already overrun 🙂
After my return I found some time to update me on the SCM activites: lo and behold! Someone is already working on this interesting craft. Watching the final phase with interesst. 👍I

Overrun budget on a model show. Now that is really something unusual. 😜

Well, I am very pleased about your interest!I f now the canopy fits reasonably, I am fully satisfied - a really beautifully made and very nicely equipped kit!

A few new pictures: the basically good fitting accuracy has continued in these last construction steps, with shaping sanding being part of the fun, of course. But it is indeed a pleasure! I drilled out the gun mouths, otherwise there was a lot of sanding and filling. The black serves as a base for Alclad "White Aluminum".

I am following your project.

Feel very welcome!

The gloss black phase seems so cool. It is a shame there are few subjects finalized in gloss black. Well done on these. 👍

Very ugly, definitely following! 🙂

I always particularly like the "black phase" as well. Feel both of you very welcome in this project - your interest makes me happy.

Wieder eine spannende Schulstunde Luftfahrtgeschichte !

Roland Sachsenhofer
Oliver, that's great to hear! "White Aluminum"/ Alclad is applied- and the sanding and filling, filling and sanding goes on for another round.... 🙂 But at least the finish is in sight!
26 November 2022, 10:16
😬👍🏻Looks great Roland!
26 November 2022, 12:11
Nice metallized 👍

Somehow I managed to like it, but not to follow. I stand corrected hereby 😉
26 November 2022, 20:45
Very unique plane
Butiful builds as always
Just wondering why build 2 at the same time
27 November 2022, 01:34
Very nice work and interesting aircraft 👍
27 November 2022, 06:06
That's a cool plane. Kinda looks like a whale.
27 November 2022, 09:23
Roland Sachsenhofer
Thank you for your interest and comments! Truly a cool aircraft! I'm building two at the same time because I really want to show the SRA-1 taking off from the water, on the other hand one model should give the opportunity to study the unusual proportions at leisure- than on the beaching gear on land. Three examples were built - so a certain variety is possible.
I am confident that I will soon get to the sealing and thus the decals 🙂

Finally finished - even if only the first of two copies. This one is standing on dry ground, I have also added the vehicles and figures to illustrate the enormous size of this planned fighter plane.
The two pitot tubes were made from syringe needles, the canopy was an adventure of its own: to be able to show it open, its wall thickness had to be planed down to paper-thin- tricky! The kit does not make any preparations in terms of material thickness to show them open. Otherwise, the construction is characterised by really extensive sanding and filling, but otherwise it is rock solid, well made and well equipped. Recommendable!
Thank you for your interest and your motivating comments - and I hope you like the pictures.

Lovely, looks better than the real thing 😉

Thank you for these motivating words and "likes", I'm glad you like the result!
The second SRA-1 is also finished as a model, here is still the water diorama in the making.

No worries 🙂 - we like it! We simply have to - another top job that you did.
5 December 2022, 11:47
An ugly beauty. And wonderful pictures of it.

Bas Tonn
nice comparison with the motorcycle
5 December 2022, 12:06

I really like this plane also.

Really great.

Hi mates, I am very impressed by your feedback - and of course delighted, as you can imagine! Thanks to all of you for your motivating words!
The motivation goes in the direction that I can soon finish the "wet" SRA-1 to be able to show this jet monster in its wet element!
