Dan Stinson Hello all - a newbie here. "Sven from Modellbau sent me." I've tried to read all the comments in this thread, as best I could using a translator. Christian, absolutely stunning work on the aircraft! I appreciate all the comments and photos of the modifications so far.

I'm working on a 1/350 conversion of the Gallery USS Intrepid kit to the USS Hancock, CVA-19, as she was on her seventh of nine deployments to the South China Sea 1972-01-07 to 1972-10-03 with CVW-21. [source: Where we were in Vietnam 1945-75, by Michael Kelley] (By the way Christian, her 1967 deployment was the Hanna's third to Vietnam after 10/64-5/65 and 11/65-8/66.)

Unfortunately for me, by '72 most of the aircraft had changed, so most of the aircraft that come with the kit are not all that usable. By '72 the A1s were gone, the Seasprites were replaced by SH3G Sea Kings, and the A4-Cs of VA 55 were upgraded to A4-Fs, while VA 93 was upgraded to A4-Es and Fs. The added avionics hump on the later A4s is really noticeable. Luckily VF 54's F-8C Crusaders were upgraded to F8-Js with little visible difference. A lot of what I needed I've found online, but I'm still pondering A4-F/G options.

Ray Bean has been very helpful, and between he and Sven they have managed to help me spend a lot of money with them. I suppose it was inevitable. I look forward to following along, and I'll try to add something of value if I get the chance.

Stephan H. Great work so far. The pictures with the complete air wing already look great! "thumbs pressed" ;)
4. July at 07:21:29
Christian Bruer Thank you Dan for you kind words and your interest. Welcome aboard, it would be fine to see your progress on Hanna. I put her beside due to several other progressing projects, but I hope to finish her one day.
Mmhhh I don't know if there are A4's with hump available in 1/350?

Looking forward to see your WIP here.

Cheers Christian

Dan Stinson I'm glad to be here, Christian!

There are several different 3D printed 1/350 aircraft on Shapeways. ( www.shapeways.com ) I just ran this filter for 1/350, but a finer search would winnow that down.
( https://shapeways.com/marketplace?type=product&q=1%2F350 )
I'm going to order a couple different models and see what I think. I suspect the most important thing is to get them in a material that's easy to work with and paint.

Another advantage is that they can be done as a single part, which would make the landing gear easier to work with. Of course there must be some trade-off for part thickness, but I want to find out.

Perhaps others know of different 3D printers with useful products? Does anyone know any more about this guy's project?

Great job so far, looking forward for more!
5. July at 15:54:14
Christian Bruer Thank you for all your kind comments. Well mates, due to a lot of other projects I put this time consumpting one beside. I'll come back to it one day and if you have the patience to want you're welcome to take a seat :)

Christian Bruer Thank you both :)

Well Peter, skills, precision, etc. everybody has his own preference and passion, mine is detail work and to try to do it as clean as possible. But I will never be able to build a sharp and clean painted (gloss clean surfaces) motorbike and / or car.

Just my 2 cent :)

Cheers Mates

Christian Bruer Thank you Bughunter. Yep I feel the same about the 406. I guess because of the avionik humb, that makes the plane look more like a warrior.
22. June at 06:31:08
Spanjaard You will not be able to master gloss clean surfaces....? I am sure you will when you try..... and we we will enjoy seeing that, as much as we do now :)

Project: Gemini XI
1:72 Gemini and Agena Docking Target (RealSpace Models )
23. April at 19:15:22 Share
Christian Bruer The RealSpace Models kit comes in a fine and crisp white resin. The kit contains only 10 resin pars, a brass rod and decals.
The casting is quite nice, the typical structure of the Gemini capsule is represented very nice. There are a few details missing and a few details simplified due to the casting and production process, mostly on the Agena, but they are easy to add using styrene profiles. I do not found plans of the Agena, so I add the details according to some photos I found in the web. It is still a little bit guesswork and the one who is an expert will find mistakes, but for me it is ok.
The building process is finished, now the paintwork can start.

Cheers, Christian

Lode Schildermans I'm in, Christian. If (and I've no doubt about that) it will look as the Apollo project, I look already forward to take the seat and enjoy the build

2. May at 18:13:13
Christian Bruer Thank you Martin, good to see you here.

Well, dealing with a subject you're not that confident with means practice by try and error :)
So happened to me within this project.
I got a hint that there should be a horizon sensor or scanner on the capsule. I researched it and found a photo with a framework on the port side of the capsule below of the window. So I scratch built the framework (photo 10 and 11) and proudly present it, just to learn, that what I built was the hatch cover of the sensor. The hatch was blown of after launch. So what to do, cut of the hardly done framwork, try to remove the glue splotches, repair the damaged (by glue) surface structure and scratch built the sensor according to a phot provided by a helping hand photo 12). Unfortunately I had to add the sensor one field aft, because I ruined this surface area completely when removing the hatch. But for me it is a good compromise and I guess none of you will tell anybody :D

Cheers, Christian
