..., but, OMG. The meanwhile 15 years+ old decals from the IPMS box are - scrap now. Maybe I could have saved them by appliying a layer of fixing/primer/etc... I did not think about this option before. I have to order new decals now.
Patrick Hagelstein Interesting build! But man, do I hope you had a dust mask when you drilled out that opening in the back! An awful lot of resin dust there!

Juergen Klinglhuber Hey Patrick! Your are right - it was a mess. And I hope it was worth doing that operation.

Juergen Klinglhuber I just recently updated with few more pictures - I am a desperate modeler. First time scribing: I am not happy with the output I have to take that as a lessons learned....
27. January, 19:12
Patrick Hagelstein What kind of paint do you normally use? I like to use lacquers and when I doubt my scribing, I spray some gloss lacquer on to see how it looks under paint. After that I just take it off again with 91% alcohol and continue my build.

Patrick Hagelstein When you don't like your scribing, fill in the grooves with sprue goo, sand flush and scribe in that. Because it cures as plastic, it's a very solid scribing material and much more forgiving than brittle resin.

Łukasz Gliński Wow, that's a lot of carving, looks like snow Following

Juergen Klinglhuber THX Patrick for your advice. Well noted. That's what I like on scalemates - someone is there to share experiences and to help out,...thx and I will try this by next change.
NorK Well first the PC-6 now the PC-7... as an Austrian I have them in my stash too
(Took me some effort to get them...)
Good to have a pro to learn and follow

Juergen Klinglhuber Hi & welcome NorK. I know what you mean - Austrian Airforce "Schmetterlingssammlung" is hard to complete. IF you get them, the build can become a pain... e.g. Marivox Saab 105,...
I started a "collection" folder with the aim so list (=build) all flown types since 1955. Well,...kind of challenging. Time will show if that list once get completted.

Juergen Klinglhuber update - I figured out that spinner from the kit(s) to not match the real thing in size and shape. I decided to scratch with spare parts from my rummage box to come closer.

Juergen Klinglhuber Anyone ever stumbled over Herstal Gunpods in 1/72 ? I did not and decided to scratch them - not sure how they turn out,....
16. April, 19:25
Juergen Klinglhuber I had the same Issue with LAU32-7 rocket launchers,...was not able to find that one in 1/72. So again some scratch work where required. Meanwhile I have a first layer of dark green on those pods...
Juergen Klinglhuber Hi Andy, Lukasz - you know that normally I like to puzzle over such kind of tasks and to try to make the best out of such kits (from my perspective of course )
.... to keep the patience and to avoid butchering the kit instead, I take a break sometimes to calm down...so - actually no clue when I will continue ! ( kidding)

Juergen Klinglhuber Cold & Rainy outside - a perfect day to spend time at the paint booth. Some progess on this one....
Patrick Hagelstein Getting there... Or did Gordon convince you to try that lollipop scheme?
14. October, 00:53
Juergen Klinglhuber Gordon, Patrik - I like lollipops. But for this bird I guess I have to stick with my original plans. Sorry.
But bird 2 of this douple build will get a more colourful dress - I hope you will like it
Juergen Klinglhuber Hi Stefan. Tricky kits those two ...But I'm motivated to get the best out of it. Only limited by my skills.....on the other hand I learned alot during this build (keyword -Future & Gunze; amongst others...)
