Germen V As I can remember I once build a CH47 SOA italeri 1/72nd, and I had to cut out the side pontoons and replace them with larger ones, the dmm things almost met up with the wall a few times. A tip find a solution for the rotors to be removable for storage and transportation of the model, or else you'll be re-attaching rotorblades frequently.
15. October at 20:28:36
Jens Thank you Germen V for the advice, I store the rotors new and of course removable, my place is less and less
15. October at 21:05:46
James C Nice progress.
15. October at 22:09:59
Bryn Crandell Looking good so far!
17. October at 16:03:08
Jens Thanks for the nice words, but there is still a lot of work and sweat, the fit is questionable for a kit from 2006, but Italeri said only, new tool, one has the feeling the forms are still from 1970
17. October at 21:49:57
Bryn Crandell WOW! the gap on the windscreen was horrible. What did you do to close up the gaps?
18. October at 21:21:32
Jens Hello Bryn Crandell, yes it was really frightening, first one side of the straight piece with Revell glue dry, but it pressure from the front on everything, from the solid piece then each strut piece by piece and always the good old Revell glue, he holds better and more stable than the Tamiya, but without gap it does not work, from below it needs about 1.5 mm filling
18. October at 21:38:52
Germen V nice progress

Jens The Mini Art Hummingbird needs a lot of weight to not a tail owner
to be, I have used the lead from the fishing shop, a pack as seen in the picture and rolled in the cockpit, glued under the engine as a strip, the V25 (finished in the pictures) I have poured the seat of lead and the tanks filled with lead, that's just barely enough!
03. October at 09:36:00
Jens Flettner 282 V6 mini art scale 1:35 OOB

Done, and also an experience more.
It was the first attempt of mini art to create an aircraft, since I had number 2 but first, of course I started a bit more stormy ...., better you stick to the specifications in the blueprint

Jens Thank you mates :) for the nice words, I am pleased if my implementation of color and technology can convince
05. October at 07:45:46
Eelco Gregoire Great looking birds Jens! I've just ordered the latest version of this kit. Looking forward to built it.
05. October at 09:10:58
Jens Hello Eelco Gregoire and thanks for the nice words :) I have also ordered the new version, in addition to the Eduard set of Ärtzteile, and 1 kg of lead in the fishing shop.
The kit is really a joy on the table, I miss the small mistakes then quite happy :)
05. October at 09:25:19
Eelco Gregoire "1kg of lead" Hahahaha
05. October at 11:58:32
Jens Eelco Gregoire in the EU should have a stock of lead, according to the new regulations, it can no longer be traded, as lead wire and lead foil collect better in the camp ;)

Christian Lehmann Hatte auch schon mal drüber nachgedachtvmir diesen Bausatz zuzulegen. Hab es aber wieder verworfen. Muß erst Bestände abbauen und Platz schaffen.
16. September at 08:35:51
Jens Ich war überrascht, ich hatte wegen dem BiG Ed Satz mit 3 Wochen Bauzeit gerechnet aber das passte alles so gut das ich schon nach 9 Tagen das finish hatte :)
16. September at 08:45:32
Christian Lehmann Na, so schnell bin ich nicht. Das würde sich bei mir bestimmt mehrere Monate hinziehen, außer wenn ich im Urlaub baue.
16. September at 08:53:04
Jens Ich bin Rentner und habe keine Verpflichtungen, das bedeutet für mich jeden Tag sehr viel Zeit an der Werkbank, zudem, Deine Modelle sind absolute Oberliga, da kann ich meine nur in die letzte Reihe stellen, also wäre das auch kein wirklicher Vergleich, aber bei 9 mal 8 Stunden sind es auch um die 72 Stunden was die Walrus bekommen hat :)
16. September at 08:57:20
Wim van der Luijt Very nice Jens!
16. September at 10:09:02
Jens Thanks Wim :) long nothing more heard of you, but also understandable, family has priority
16. September at 10:15:16
Mike Daniels Great job Jens. I have this kit in my stash. I think you are the first on SM to build it so thanks for leading the way. Did you use Eduard PE kit ? That cockpit detail is very tasty. I like the folded up wings. Looks rather fiddly. Nice one mate!!
16. September at 12:08:26
Jens Thanks Mike :) I have installed the BiG set by Eduard, which delivers everything you need, just the roof is open is a problem, because you should really change the shape at Airfix Picture 3 shows the BiG set packed, and the pictures of the construction show the brass in the square :)

Jens 2 days work almost without sleep :) :) Mini Art has brought something special to the shelves
03. September at 10:27:00
Bart Goesaert Looking good, is the Eduard set a must, or just nice to have. Doesn't look like it adds a lot extra...
03. September at 10:33:48
David Funke Watching!
03. September at 11:47:06
Jens Welcome David and Bart :)

@ Bart, I have for the V 21 only the zoom set, straps and indicators, in the large set would be still flaps and parts for the engine to find. The belts have a different version in the set, which was not available at the time for the Germans, so for the belts then Eduard, in the ads you can also use the decals, clean and well printed, a little Gunze GX 100 as glass on the clocks, that should be enough :)
03. September at 11:54:36
Choppa Nutta Cool ! :)
06. September at 23:01:30
Jens Thanks Choppa Nutta, is something else, a real flying cage :)

07. September at 05:30:34
Jan Peters Very cool subject, looks great.
07. September at 09:32:35
Jens Hello Jan Peters, yes an interesting story, I'm waiting for the Mini Art also the Russian booty Flettner realized, and of course the sequel developments, the quality is really very good, which of course means that the other two are already on the way to me : -)

Peter Hardy Stay away from me Jens, I about to start the Bismarck and I don't want any Swordfish anywhere near it!
29. August at 12:49:37
Bart Goesaert nice, very nice so far
29. August at 14:13:18
Jens ohhh Peter, build the HMS Hood :) :) :) , it is probably the same embarrassing story as that of the Bismark, a lot of gray color get both :D
I wanted to build another Cataline, so the Hod would be more suitable :D the Walrus Mk I already made it into the album ;)
29. August at 14:13:28
Daniel Klink Hi Jens, great stuff again mate.. I'm in

Peter Hardy The Hood is an after retirement project and in 200 scale.
30. August at 22:44:05
Jens Thanks Clifford, I'm glad if the Swordfish you like, then I have not done much wrong :) Thank you :)
@ Peter, for me, every ship would have started too late, even with 4 pensions ih would not get it done ;)

Spanjaard very nice. nice work on that grass, and of course in the model
11. August at 14:01:23
Timothy Heimer I like it!
11. August at 14:24:38
Jens Thank you Timothy and Spanjaard for your opinion :) the kit is really very nice, with small flaws such as burr or shape shift, but very nicely done,
it will not be the last baker of mine ;)
@ Spanjaard the grass is ready bought (10 euros per piece), if I find the manufacturer you get the link as a PN from me

Rene Scheiblich Woohoo nailed the paintjob as usual Jens! I'm leaning towards that scheme as well, it looks sleek and badass in black :D
Pity though about the collapsed undercarriage. I hope I remember to use some 2k glue with mesh for these parts.
30. July at 09:29:34
Jens @ Peter, I'm too fast, because you probably miss a lot, my models have very little response because, the colleagues often need to buy more time than me for the construction :D
@ Rene, the weight makes real concern with the model, even at the end you have the händling rpobleme, the many small parts, I was glad that the Heinkel could then leave the table without further damage ;)
@bobinspokaloo not many planes have earned the attribute "Sexy", but the Heinkel 219 is an interesting, in the colors very exciting and in the scale also huge plane and it has been really fun despite the glitches :)
30. July at 11:38:50
Bart Goesaert And a beautysalon it is... Nice work
31. July at 07:38:42
Bryn Crandell Very nice. Are the antennae photo etch? They look real fiddly. Great paint job!
31. July at 13:39:59
Jens Thank you colleagues for the nice words :)
@Bryn Crandell the antennas are original Revell plastic
31. July at 14:46:47
Rene Scheiblich Thought as much. Sleek looking but a tad bit on the heavy side :)
I'm worried about all those delicate parts sticking around everywhere as well.

Peter, interesting alternative use for the antennae… :D Don't forget the "remove before flight" labels though… Don't want to go hunt bombers with some undies on the windscreen :S
01. August at 21:12:45
Peter Hardy Especially 1945 undies! The whole windscreen would be "Bombay Bloomers"!

Jens, I have a history of destroying fine plastic antennas. How did you seperate from the sprues?
01. August at 23:15:22
Jens Hello Peter, that's easy :)
From CMK a fine saw to separate it from the frame and then with a scalpel easily scraping and scratching The link is intended only as an aid, so that is understood exactly what I meant Ultra smooth saw (both sides) 5pcs (CMK H1005, No)

No Ultra smooth saw (both sides) 5pcs (CMK H1005)

Martien Lourens Ich bin seit 2 jahre kein profi mehr aber hobby airbrusher. :) Das gibt kein stress :). Aber du hast schöne linien, kringen gezogen. Ohne unterbrechungen und spetter. Das ist doch mal was und konsentration. Übung bezahlt sich immer aus. Oder du bist eim natur talent. Ich habe die linien nicht kontroliert. :) :) :) Ein fehler in linien sieht man gleich. :)
