I haven't even started and already I get I like. I love SCM🙂🙂🙂🙂
By the way I intend to build my SBD in flying condition and found already a suitable motor (old Walkman).
I find out that the motors are unfortunately too deep and we had to modify the cabin. As we all know you can find anything on eBay, shorter motors also🙂. Today I received the package. 🙂
I wonder if maybe those silver oxide batteries found in watches are better types of batteries in models. My wrist watch's battery lasted over five years before it had to be changed. The silver oxide batteries are also fairly small and cheap, if one is ok with non original Seiko silver oxide batteries. 🙂
Having said that I guess it goes without saying that even small batteries can be dangerous (in some situations). I read about how a house burned down some years ago (presumably true) because of how one 9V battery allegedly fell down from a shelf, hitting another 9V battery (iirc), apparently causing a spark and igniting something volitile on the floor inside a garage.
A motorized project by Bernhard?? I am in 👍
Very clever - a own camouflaged fan for better air on the booth during the next exhibition 👍
Gesrochen scharf und exakt der richtige Glanzgrad ! 👍
Very nice progress. The yellow looks great 👍
Sehr edel 👍
Nice paintwork 👍👀
Makellos ! 👍 Da muss ich mich mal ganz schön ranhalten…… ! 😄

Cool project and absolute Convincing result Bernhard!!! 👍
The new photos do even more justice to this pretty little yellow fatty 😄 😄 , beautiful !
I am just overwhelmed with the quality and time of this built, not mentioning the beauty of the subject and fantastic photos. Simply perfect! Chapeau bas encore, Bernhard!
Lovely build! Just Beautiful 👍 Congrats!
Thank you mates! I'm glad that you like my Spraycat. After several helix with a lot of extra parts it was a welcome change. 🙂

Can help but seeing the cockpit of a Bristol Blenheim mated to The Flight of the Phoenix wings and fuselage. Even back then Bernhard, another great piece of your work!
Exellent Observation Bernhard.Pardon the pun.
Very clean and detailed build. Great job.
So authentic and brillantly done wow!!!!!
Thank you Mates. I'm glad that you like my OOB project. I was a kind of test if it is possible for me to build a kit OOB without the hi tec aftermarket products🙂.
Really lovely, beautiful model of an unusual and rarely modelled subject, Thankyou for sharing 👍🏻
Very very nice!!! 👍😍
It must be you, Bernhard...there was no photoetch to be seen....excellent and as always a joy to look at your work, sir.

very clean build and lovely detailling.
Fantastic build with a different twist. Top job Bernhard.
Looking great! Nice and interesting choice of colours. At first I thought it was a Tigercat crop sprayer 😄
A second wave of kind comments! Thank you mates. Indeed it was a very unique project. After several years of abstinence I resurrected the 1/3 completed model and finished it with a minimum of effort… I'm glad that you like my "Halfgercat" 🙂
Very nice build 👍

Yesterday I finished my first Decotora truck, my first truck ever and noticed that the most time consuming task was the painting. This was the first project/model where I had to use chrome plated parts. I had despite the "small" scale (1:32) the truck is really big... Maybe I will build in the future one more of these unique and typically Japanese trucks.
it looks fantastic 🙂
This is great😆 really like it!
Such things are rarely seen-good idea👍
Simon is right!
Any local TÜV-employee would faint. 😄😄😄
Great stuff! :y:

Hallo Berhard, darf ich sagen, ich finde deinen Racer einfach klasse!
Maßstabsmodellbau vom Feinsten 👍
This one is stunning too, of course! (I have been a bit confused at first, when looking at Hanno's album at the same time, to be sincere...;) )
Hi Robert: this is the groupbuild picture of the groupbuild🙂. The "Longwing-variant" (right in the picture) is build by Hanno.
Thanks, Bernhard - I have figured it out after a while 😉

Great job, Bernhard! Im just starting this puzzle of a kit and your build is a fantastic reference. Did you scratch make everything you added in your notes or use after market supplies? Curious about the seatbelts, FOD mesh covers, tie down hooks, and all the fiddly bits you added on the outside.
Nice results. Thanks for sharing it.
Hello Casey. Thank you for your nice feedback. All extra parts are scratch build. I used f.e. tea bag - mesh for creating the FOD covers.
You and Ronan are the best helicopter modelers I have ever seen, your attention to detail and scratch building skills are amazing.
A clean beauty. 👍

Bernhard, frankly I am blown away by the quality of this build. I don't know how you do it. Amazing!
Ich bin sprachlos! Es ist wirklich TOP geworden! 👍
That's premium modeling at its best. Extremely well done Bernhard 👍
Bernhard you are an artist, great modeling skills and a lot of knowledge of what are you doing. Great!! Congratulations
Ein Traum!!!! 🙂

Few days ago I discovered that MACO released a quarter scale plane kit (his first airplane kit). Today I received the box that I ordered three days ago and Im totally enthusiastic! An incredible detailing, precision of all parts including several sizes of rivets and crystal clear parts. The huge decal sheet is printed absolutely clearly and without offset! 12 points go to MACO.

How much I miss these little meetings!
Great little Show. Thx for sharing Bernhard 👍
Nice to see your masterpieces also in desktop-mode, Bernhard. Beautiful! 👍
Thx for sharing 👍
Es gab ja schon viele Modellbauausstellungen, aber auf dieser Expo gab es mehr Aussteller als Besucher, keine Warteschlangen vor der Tür, nur nette Menschen und 1A Catering. Also ein Tag bei einem Freund mit anderen Freunden!

Cool Skyray - great job.
Nach wie vor eine echte Augenweide ! 👍
Danke Hanno. Ich kann's kaum glauben dass es 22 Jahre her sind… dein übernächstes Projekt? Würde zu deinen bisherigen Werken aus der Hand von Ed Heinemann passen…
Colourful! I like it a lot!
🙂 ich bin völlig Deiner Meinung - passt total in mein Beuteschema.....🙂
Saubere Arbeit und wundervolle Farben!
Interesting and colourfull work. Well done 👍
Wow.. love it!
I like it a lot, very well done.

Hier gibt es wieder etwas schönes neues zu gucken! Der Anfang sieht ja schon mal hervorragend aus!
Danke Holger. Meine letzte Avenger ist schon 13!!!! Jahre her! Unglaublich!
At the weekend I spent any hours in the cowling and engine. It was quite a tussle to get the to large engine in the cowling... But it's fit. I intend to left one panel open to show the engine.
Schöner Start! Bin gespannt wie es weiter geht.
Moin Bernhard 🙂 noch ein Leckerchen , den AM Kit habe ich auch noch im Lager, ich wollte die zum Feuerbomber umrüsten, oder wie Du als Drohenleitversion, natürlich wird das deutlich bescheidener ausfallen als bei Euch, aber ich bleibe als Zuschauer dem BB treu, was man bei Dir an Ideen und Vorschlägen gezeigt bekommt, ist immer wieder eine Modellbauschule der Extraklasse 👍 mal ein Danke dafür 👍 👍 👍
Excellent modelling as usual 🙂
wow, this is serious modeling!
Excellent work. Did you make the hinge-pins yourself, or buy them?
Thank you John: the pins are parts from a „connection block„ for a external memory module which I removed from a pc - motherboard.
Like I said: Worth to be continued……….🙂 😄
I think the Sprayer MGB would be a very good motivator...🙂
Great improvising - looks very convincing.

Awesome build. 👍
Die Fotos beweisen, dass du auch schon vor 18 Jahren exzellente Modelle gebaut hast.
Beautiful cat Bernhard, all those carefully placed details and perfect paintwork make this one unique .
This is fantastic, could have been an actual one easily!
Awesome cat Bernhard!! 👍
Very nice work!
Wow, amazing detail
Even after 22 years, this one still is state of the art 🙂
Bernhard.....just a beautiful example of your work and its excellence, going back decades....
....Thank you for letting the rest of us mere mortals on to this build!
Top notch, amazing attention to details!

leider lange nichts mehr von dir gehört, ich hoffe dich bald auf Messen wieder zu sehen. Dein Heli: einfach sagenhaft, würde jedes Magazin bis nach Japan ehren, Wow! 🙂
Wow. what an amazing built! i'm speechless!
Atemberaubend Bernhard! Sieht echter aus als der echte echt ehrlich!!! 👍 👍 👍
Simply stunning modell, fantastic work.

Obviously my interest for helicopters especially Sikorsky is so big that I already looked yesterday for a new Sikorsky project. And I found it! I bought the kit about 4 years ago but don't know how to solve 2 problems. This morning I talked to a mate and he helped me to find a solution (Thx David!). It's good that today we live in the PE & 3D era 🙂
I admire your stamina 👍. Taking a seat.

When I started the project 2019 I ran out of breath: the kit is a true puzzle and consists the chassis and the cabin only flat (2D) parts.
Now I reactivated the project: after finishing my last (longest) project nothing can scare me. 🙂
April 12, 2021
A wonder of the art of imagination and genius skill. 👍 🙂 Just superb. 👍 👍 👍
Amazing....Just a joy to take in
interesting heli. well built!
Very nice, clean and detailed work. The red and white livery suits the Seaking very well and you did a great job on it.
a true master piece!!

I heard some rumours about legendary Model Master enamel chrome which is even harder to get, but forgot the numbering 🙁
1790, more than 10 years ago I got one from a shop, which had a nice collection of MM. Sadly, It has been closed for more than 5 years...
I have never tried these, but I find the Humbrol Metal Cote (27001/2/3/4) very good when brushing. Their regular Siler (11) is pretty bad though, unless you want a very dull 'silver'.
Boris - yes, that is what I meant (and I see Maciej agrees 👍 ). The current #11 is virtually grey- the old formula was almost as good as chrome!! The Metal Cotes are quite good, but can be less forgiving. 😠
I'm agree with mates... Humbrol 11 early was very good, but late 11 seems pale metallic, almost gray. I was extremely disappointed when I opened the bottle and applied the paint. I have also had some Metal Cote with good results.

Another masterpiece in your collection!
Pure piece of art, or result of a modeler with AMS😉 Very close to the original aircraft 👍
Beautiful and inspirational work !
In many ways wonderful and awesome!
February 2, 2021
Wow! What a stunner.
Fantastic job. Congrats!
Beutifull work. Very well done 👍
Thank you mates for the second batch of nice comments. I'm glad that you like my polish Ballanca.

Ah, there it is ! Somehow it got past me..... is there a seat left for me ?🙂
That looks very interesting! Will follow 👍
I'm glad to see so many interested mates! You are welcome!
I follow that !!
