scalemates Nice nice! (Ps: this should be a seaking project linked to a collection: "aircrafts kf the uss forestal"
13. April at 08:23:00
Robert Espenschied Thanks... (what is the album for? I got your point with the project & collection)
13. April at 19:53:21
Steven Van Dyck Robert, I'll tell you about an error you made on the sea king because I made it too myself. If you looked closely, you noticed perhaps that the inner wheels on both front wheel carriages are not touching the ground surface. At first I thought this was a kit error, but then I realized (maybe by looking at reference pictures) that I had erroneously removed part of the sponson fixing struts to be able to glue the sponsons against the hull. In the real helicopter, they have about 10cm spacing between the hull and them. When you put them apart again and add about 2mm of strut between, the carriage will touch on all 4 wheels. You only need to repaint the part that was behind the sponson, which is not so conspicuous.

This is how I repaired it:

Francky Very nice but where did you get that carrier deck?
12. March at 13:26:04
Nathan Dempsey Very nice display. I really like the Cutlass. I'm curious about the carrier deck as well.
12. March at 13:32:58
Robert Espenschied to make a long story short it was a lot of work...
...the first idea was to paint it by hand on wood panels, which I dismissed pretty quickly...
...then I was looking for a hi quality photo of the deck, no luck either...
finally I scanned the deck of an old 1/600 scale Airfix kit. The to scans I put together with a paint program and started to colorizing it. Then it was plotted on plastic foil...

Robert Espenschied Thank you both...
2. February at 06:54:14
Rui S How did you find the kit? Any issues? I've some roden 1/32 in my stash ;)
2. February at 11:35:43
Robert Espenschied In general it was a straight forward build. The paint instructions in my kit specially for the interior were poor. I used the Eduard 1/48 as a guide. The decals are very thick and softener didn't work well on them. If you plan every step and you do enough try fitting you should do ok.
2. February at 15:20:39
Rui S Thanks mate I always do a lot of dry fitting ;)
3. February at 03:14:11
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy Nice work Robert! I get your point concerning the decals: the weight table seems to suffer from quite some silvering as a result.
I especially like the realistic turnbuckles you used for the rigging! They look perfect!
And by the way, what are those two white painted surfaces on the leading edge of the upper wing?
3. February at 12:07:42
Robert Espenschied The decals were the general issue with this build. If I knew the trouble ahead of me, I would have airbrushed all crosses. The white of the decals is much brighter and I was not able to blend them in. As a result you see them on the leading edges :(
