Interesting build! But man, do I hope you had a dust mask when you drilled out that opening in the back! :o An awful lot of resin dust there!

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

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....

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.

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.

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 :)

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. :)

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.

Anyone ever stumbled over Herstal Gunpods in 1/72 ? I did not and decided to scratch them - not sure how they turn out,....

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
Pod and Launcher - done.

Thx Mirko.
Thx Lukasz. That makes it even more interessing,... (to me).

Patient work there Juergen!

Nice to see this couple back on the workbench

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 - actually no clue when I will continue ! ( :) kidding)

Cold & Rainy outside - a perfect day to spend time at the paint booth. Some progess on this one....

Gordon Sørensen
Great looking paint, Juergen! I prefer one a little more colourful though...
11. October, 20:44
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 ;)
stay tuned...

Orange is my favourite colour! Looking forward to seeing the paint come together. And great job on the builds! Some very impressive scratch building and detailing!

Patrick Hagelstein
Orange??? As a Dutch guy, I'm in! :D

Jürgen, I take a closer look at the two PC-7s.
20. November, 17:03
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...) ;)
