Hanno Kleinecke Cockpithaube á la Toaster ? Wenn das Brot erst mal ein paar Tage alt ist, hilft der Toaster auch.... :) Nive job on the „flight ration" ! Bon appetite ! :)
14. January at 17:44:59
Treehugger Aha. I guess it was fortunate that the kit part for the canopy glass was one piece, which I guess made it easier to make a vacuum shape from it.

Bernhard Schrock Yesterday I finished the last task before painting and so I visited today the excellent picture gallery on Seawings. I wonted to look for details for painting. Again I discovered a lot of mistakes. I don't won't to be picky but there were not small. I almost lost heart to finish the duck. My first idea was smash my kit, boxed it and send it back to Merit. It is scandalous that an American company which has half a dozen Ducks around the corner is unable to produce a decent kit. By the way: the fabric surfaces do not remotely look like the original as well. Even Lindberg did a better fabric-job more than 40 years ago.
I think I'm going to leave this junk and tomorrow I'm going to start Tamiya Wildcat.....
15. January at 20:09:24
Bernhard Schrock I just decided to cancel the project.
15. January at 20:10:49
Hanno Kleinecke Oops accidently deleted my post..... Really cancelled ? After all that brillant detailwork ? That would be a real shame ! Maybe consider it a „ What if I would'nt have noticed" :) ?
15. January at 20:18:24
Treehugger Ouch. I haven't researched this particular subject since I made a 3D model of the Grumman Duck on a computer a long time ago, so I don't know how accurate the Merit kit is. I did find it odd that the side windows by the wing root seemed to look like being flat, when I think it should be more like a box. That was the only thing that stopped me from buying the kit, for quite a while now.
15. January at 20:43:32
Thomas Bischoff that's sad to hear - especially after all the work you put into her but I see your points and agree with the mentioned defects.
15. January at 21:16:52
bughunter Pity. Really pity, after all the effort you spent. I hope you can at least save the engines fro another project.

Bernhard Schrock Hi mates. Yesterday I enjoyed my finished bird and today enjoy your comments :).
Vitor: yes, the rigging is half my work (artwork, the other half / etching was done by Thomas Gatermann).
Bernhard: would you like to sit in the front or in the back?
02. December 2018 at 18:49:42
Ben M This build is inspirational! Thank you for sharing your work and advice.
02. December 2018 at 19:16:03
Martin o stunning work
02. December 2018 at 19:41:11
Bernhard Pethe Bernhard: I sat in front one time. But no matter, it is a nice experience to fly with such a biplane over the land. :)
03. December 2018 at 10:24:27
Erik Leijdens Amazing work as always! Lovely aircraft too
03. December 2018 at 11:18:39

Spanjaard it used the be the best (or was it the only one? )
11. October 2018 at 21:11:30
Bernhard Schrock Indeed for a long time the was the only one and state of the art. I remember more than 40 years ago I saw in Gdansk in Składnica harcerska (shop with modelkits, paints and a lot of other usefull things for kids) first time the humbrols. 10 PLN for each tin was a lot of money. For comparison: an average polish made kit in 1:72 cost at this time between 10-15 PLN....
13. October 2018 at 10:18:07
Bernhard Schrock Today I began the assembly and had a little bit to improvise because the base is standard Hino truck.
13. October 2018 at 10:22:33
Daniel Klink Running Love it already
13. October 2018 at 10:28:08
Daniel Klink Just love it Looks great. The Decal work and built is awesome with this kit
Make me want to start my Bonnet Bus..
But .. first i have to finish 4-5 other projects
13. October 2018 at 16:23:40
Spanjaard i remember it was the only one i had for quite some time back on similar ages... that and testors that was (for me at least) totally horrible... i still have some cans that are not used for more than 20 years. last time i checked them, they seemed still in good condition (incredibly )
13. October 2018 at 19:48:27
Bernhard Schrock 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.
16. October 2018 at 19:13:33

Robbie Are the ones that have the number stamped on the lid good or bad? I am checking my Humbrol stash and so far I have stickers and the ones with the number stamped on the lid.
13. October 2018 at 12:10:55
Augie Hi Robbie, the stamped ones are more difficult I am sorry to say.

The older ones are superb, any post 2016 seem to be very much hit and miss as to if they are ok.

If they are https://encrypted-tbn0.gstat..B96Y-N5EllGVgZNaPr5m7qfBpVhw

Then they should be fine.

If they are https://encrypted-tbn0.gstat..zNA9QnC0gOVvWv-T7L-xM2KvuSJw

then mileage will vary

13. October 2018 at 12:39:45
Bernhard Schrock I add a picture with all versions of tins.
13. October 2018 at 12:52:27
Augie Perfect Bernhard, was what i was trying to find
13. October 2018 at 14:54:23
Robbie I am confused. In the pic. What is the difference between the 2nd tin on the left (with a green check) with the 3 red X ones on the right? The logo all looks the same and they have the stamped number on the lid
13. October 2018 at 20:13:25
Cuajete Interesting... I stopped using Humbrol several years ago, but I think I still have some boat in the stash.
Following this interesting discussion.
14. October 2018 at 08:54:05
Augie Robbie, sadly its also the pot label which you need to use to identify the bad.. The 2nd on the left will have been made in the UK, the 2nd on the right will have been made in china when Humbrol moved production to reduce costs. This is where there can be confusion as they didn't change the label at the time.
The others on the right are post production move.

14. October 2018 at 09:27:16
Robbie Well, it looks like the tins I have fall into the 2nd and 3rd from the right. I have a couple on the left but not what Bernhard is looking for. If anything I sure got a lesson on Humbrol paints.

Ronan Hi Bernhard, can you tell me the colour you used to paint the airframe, please ?
19. September 2018 at 10:00:17
Clifford Keesler Excellent job.
19. September 2018 at 15:04:58
Bernhard Schrock Ronan, as usual I mixed the paint and used as base HU 125 satin gray (FS2611 8) and add approximately 25-30% HU 181 (gloss seablue). The mixture produced a nice satin finish and so I could apply the decals direct without problems (no gloss coat bevor decals an no clear varnish after applying decals).
19. September 2018 at 17:47:18
Bernhard Schrock Thank you Clifford: I'm glad that you like my newest Helo-puzzle :)
19. September 2018 at 17:48:16

Bernhard Schrock Scott: there are very interesting news about 232. Because this product is impossible to get in Europe I bought 3 bottles in Japan (!!!). The joy was very short: first I received an info that shipping via airmail is impossible and two days later I got a second mail that it is impossible to send this product to Germany via surface mail too. Now I'm asking myself what the hell is in this bottle? I've used this nearly 10years and I'm still alive :).
Yesterday I ordered a second batch of bottles in Taiwan and I'm very curious if I will get this :)
bughunter: thanks for saying that: I specially appreciate this compliment from you.
13. September 2018 at 15:12:47

Bernhard Schrock What you see in the last picture is the result of about 4 hours work: 1 hour separating and "cleaning" parts, 2 hours of airbrushing and brushing of small details and 1 hour assembly. The fit is amazing: no filling, no sanding no cheating :) just simple modeling fun. I expect about 2 more hours for a little bit washing and solar panels and then I'm done! :) I could get used to this!
