Moritz Fentzahn Hello Holger, i' m searching these stamps too. Maybe you can give me a sign if you find them somewhere. I will keep you current too if i find them.

Choppa Nutta haha, is that bad of a fit ?
ah well, the practice will do me good ! :D
07. August 2016 at 04:46:44
Michael Hickey Well after viewing Cliffy's Cat I think I need a piece of humble pie. :# He done a nice job.
07. August 2016 at 05:03:30
Choppa Nutta Reading through the review it does have some shortcomings but for the price and the addition of some cheap PE for the cockpit, also it was a new tool in 2002 so not that old at all really and I've got a rivet wheel ! :D

Feeling tempted actually :D
07. August 2016 at 05:23:31
H. Wi Still nobody able to tell if the new Tamiya cat can be built overswept or not?
10. August 2016 at 22:52:56
Markus Antonius what does overswept mean?
11. May at 08:18:21
Patrick Hagelstein Markus, overswept means that the wings are completely folded for storage or moving around on a flight deck. Overswept means that the wings hang marginally over the stabilizers, so no movibg of those is possible.
11. May at 10:00:14
Markus Antonius ahh i see! never recognised this in photographs of tomcats in carrier-bays... thanks patrick!
11. May at 11:53:44
Mathijs Beenhakker Markus The F-14's wing sweep can be varied between 20° and 68° in flight and for storage on deck or hangar they had the oversweep of 75 degrees

Rui S Nice paint job in that Beautiful Gerda, Holger
Are the tracks finished?
I just think they look a beat monochromatic, and need a bit more control on track sag, IMHO.

Kerry Cox@Holger Kranich
The barrels are posted. G'day Mate :)
07. October 2014 at 09:58:12 Share
Holger Kranich Cool! I´ll have a look! G´day, too Kerry!
07. October 2014 at 10:04:02
Kerry Cox Coooooweeeee. ?
Holger, A good mate and I have started planning our definite trip to Wangerooge next year mate and we will eventually want to do a bit of being "Tourists" after the week with you guys and as you know how to get things happening for all the SM lads there on the island, I was wondering if you could pass on some info on how Peter and I could access the U-Boot's that are in the general area of Willnhelmshaven while we are there and other places of interest. ?
Thankfully, I have sorted out the issues that stopped me from coming over this last meeting and I can travel freely from Oz to Europe.
There are a couple of other places we want to visit and some of the mates have expressed their keenness to meet up and have a beer or three. hehehe :)
Alex Glass of Uschi said to me he would love to meet me and as he is close by, (somewhere in Germany) haha ! And Rui in Portugal is also on the list of 'a beer or three'.
As I and Peter, (an other fanatical modeller) who lives about 800Km just up the road frm me, we have become good mates over the period of the last year or so and has similar interests too, but runs a trucking company in a town called Morringah, teaching drivers of big rigs to operate the vehicles and dosent get out and about as much as he would like to and attend the competitions here, as his missus is not too keen on his or our moelleing, much of which has been discussed on Skype. :)
I would be stoked if you could offer some links that we could look at and we could organize uor visit in a way that incorperates all there is for a couple of old Aussie bums to see. (NO, we are NOT gay. ! ) hehehe
Cheers big fella.

10. April at 08:19:22
Peter Hardy I could be for the right amount of money Kerry. We are sharing a room aren't we?
10. April at 08:48:55
Kerry Cox I do believe that sharing rooms is the best way to 'budget' one's way when being tourists. :) :) :)
10. April at 15:48:20
Peter Hardy I snore. But I do have a sleep apnoea machine that keeps me quiet!
10. April at 23:05:57
Kerry Cox We are twins I am sure. !!!
I do have a device that aids in alleviating the snore, other than a pillow over my head. hahahaha :)
11. April at 00:28:41
Peter Hardy If you pass wind in your sleep the latter will be my response.

And thanks to Mission Models paint! Best stuff i ever had in my Airbrush :D
15. March at 12:37:47
Michael Hickey That's some nice work on the gun Holly, but it looks to me there might have been more drinking than modelling going on. ;)
15. March at 13:29:43
Holger Kranich Hey Michael, lets say it was 50-50%. ;)
But it was still serious modeling and much fun! I can recommend the AFV Club kit. Fiddely but fun.

Markus Antonius lohnt sich auf jede fall... passgenauigkeit unschlagbar, teilezahl überschaubar... am ende steht eine schöne g6 da! wenn man allerdings den motor nicht sehen will, ist der preis dann doch etwas hoch und eduard bietet für weniger geld auch eine schöne g6 ohne motornachbildung.

Noch versuche ich zu wiederstehen. Jetzt kommt erst Mal eine Woche basteln beim ScaleMates Meeting auf Wangerooge!

Jonns Pfeiffenberger ja ist schon ärgerlich. Hatte den Urlaub eigentlich früh beantragt und wurde auch noch nicht genehmigt, weil man die Ausichten für 2018 abwarten wollte... hatte ich vor zwei Jahren oder so auch schon. Im Sommer sitze ich dann wieder rum. :( Danke Thomas, für die netten Worte. Vielleicht kann ich ja heimlich durchs Netz schlüpfen ;)

25. October 2017 at 13:40:10
Wilfried Bogaerts Hey Holly, I always mix a fair amount of Tamiya gloss varnish X-22 with my acrylic paints (Tamiya, Gunze or Lifecolor). It then leaves a hard and durable finish, resistant to Tamiya masking tape and other handling. However, I do have that problem with Alclad II metalics, especially their gloss black primer lifts from the plastic only when rubbed lightly with your tumb (or my thumb...). And I always leave my paint to dry overnight (or longer) before masking.
25. October 2017 at 15:44:38
Wilfried Bogaerts Oh, and (mostly) I clean the model with a paper tissue and pure alcohol from the local pharmacist...
25. October 2017 at 15:47:09
Holger Kranich Yeah i wanted too much, too quick... The idea with X-22 sounds indeed good to me. But maybe i should clean the model before painting. ;) I am such a lazy modeler... :D
25. October 2017 at 15:47:47
Wilfried Bogaerts Lazy, ain't we all... but this is certainly not noticable on your models, they don't look "lazy" to me !
25. October 2017 at 15:56:05
Wilfried Bogaerts Someday I will visit The Island and bring you a small bottle of pure alcohol. If you don't use it on your models, you can always drink it ! ;)
25. October 2017 at 16:00:38
Holger Kranich Good idea, then we can have a drink together! Cheers! :)
