Christian Bruer Wow Christian, that comes out stunning so far. I much admire all the nice details you created in that scale. VEry very nicely done. I am looking forward to the next steps
Thomas Wirsching Allmächt, sehr schön gemacht! Vielleicht sollte ich auch mal in den Club beitreten (war vor gefühlt 25 Jahren schonmal kurz dabei mußte aber aus Zeitgründen wieder raus). Braucht Ihr noch einen Allround-Modellbauer in euren Reihen?

Christian Lehmann Klar doch! Schau doch einfach beim nächsten Treffen mal vorbei. Ist am 20.02. Den Ort findest du auf der Internetseite.

Thomas Wirsching Ich schau mal ob ich´s schaff im Februar. Hatte schon vor mich dieses Jahr mal umzusehen. Ist besser mit Gleichgesinnten als nur "Einzelkämpfer"
Stefan Fraundorfer Hallo Christian, die Bezeichnung "Großes" Torpedoboot G-39 ist ein Widerspruch in Sich, wenn man das Foto mit der Ein-Cent-Münze sieht. Auf jeden Fall hast du es toll gebaut, gealtert und super in Szene gesetzt.
Christian Lehmann Thank´s Christian. I will proceed with an L-39 that I started one year ago. Derfflinger has to wait. Nevertheless there are some lessons lerned from this project especially when I worked with acryl gel. The tuffest job at this project was the rigging of the masts. The filament I used was that fine that it was difficult to hold it with the tweezers.
Humpty Hays I just picked up this model. It seems you applied a very heavy wash to the panels.

Christian Lehmann Yes I did. Especially at the wings to give it more deepness to avoid that it looks boring I also tried to work with Grey and Brown pin wahes on the black Areas for the same purpose. And because it is SciFi nobody can say that it is not realistic

Konrad Limmer Very Cool Christian! The Tie looks really dangerours !
Humpty Hays How was the build overall? I know they are basically snap together, but I saw a couple of videos that convinced me to try one of the Bandai kits. Can you see the details well in the cockpit?
Christian Lehmann @ Steve: The build was without problems. I Always build them with the transparent part. This limits a little bit the view inside the cockpit. Ilumination would be an option. But Bandai also offers the oportunity to buit the kits only with a frame for the windows without transparent parts. This might allow a better view inside. In deed they are snapkits but I always glue them to avoid non closed joints which was a Problem at the AT-ST I built. I also prime and paint them in general.

Humpty Hays @ Christian: once I finish some of the other models I have, I'll get started on this on, if I can resist building it.
The details look really good. I've been thinking about the illumination problem and thinking about building my own base with a glow tube running into the back and a light source in the base. I'll post it once I have it done.
I want to do several of the AT-ST kits. A lot of options and kit bashing there.
Tim Heimer I wish I could paint half as well as that!

Christian Lehmann Thank you mates.
@Tim: It is not so difficult as it seems. I think it is most important to find an own style and not to imitate the style of other people. If you like the result of what you did it is o.k.
