Lochsa_River Where did the instruments come from?...did you print them or or they decals of some kind? astounding and fun to watch this unfold...
21. May, 23:58
Bernhard Schrock Thx Mates :)
Lochsa_River: I know two sources for excelent instrumentbezel-decals:

Mike Grant decals
for example:
Jet Cockpit Details (Mike Grant Decals CJK 072, 1:72)

Airscale decals
for example:
Cockpit-Instrumente alliiert.. I (Airscale AS48 WKI, 1:48)

Both products are excellent.

Carlos Cisneros This is some excellent scratch work that you are doing to improve this kit! Superb construction of all the small details on the motor and in the cockpit.
22. May, 16:53
Bernhard Schrock Cockpit is now completed except the auxiliary fuel tank. I calculated the volume with approx. 950 l. In 1:48 there should be aprox. 8,6 ml and this is a lot for the rear compartment!!! I have no idea how shape the tank could have :( Or several tanks because the door on the right side was very small. Because of that I decided to build the model in normal configuration: with cushions for the passengers.
23. May, 05:50
Slavo Hazucha I swear I can read the text on the data plate! ;)
24. May, 08:28
Bernhard Schrock Slavo: congratulations, you don't need glasses! :)
As I already wrote, in the originally the lower fuselage area was covered in fabric. However, in the kit thus structure is shown incorrectly: by recessed panel lines. After filling with CA I wonted to restore them but shied away from it because I did not know how to hold the steel ruller during the process. Today I had in enough time to do it and I'm happy with the result.
24. May, 18:11
Bernhard Schrock Another difficult obstacle overcome: the clear part is in place without damage.

Felix Troschier Great effort! Can't wait to see it in Lingen

bughunter Have not yet commented on the final pictures: OMG! The model uses more parts then all my build models until now TOGETHER ! crazy project, Du bist der Wahnsinn!

8. May, 17:53
Michael Phillips YES! Count me in. I am building the same kit right now, although I am just doing the normal US Navy version.
I can only imagine how awesome this is going to be in your hands!
8. May, 20:15
Bernhard Schrock Hi Mates, a lot of seats free :) Cola or Pepsi? :)
Michael, I saw that you intend to build the same heli and that you have almost the same aftermarket sets I collected. I find you idea very remarkable to riveting the model: a lot of rivets!! Which reference do you have for the Rosie - job?
When do you intend to beginn the project or have you already started? At the moment I'm working on Mr. Mulligan. And after that I'm going to keep my promise and will build KH's Huey in German SAR markings supported by David (DF Helo Stuff). Maybe after that we can do a double feature. Maybe a few more people will join... :)
11. May, 07:27
Bryn Crandell Joining this party. Pepsi please. Are there decals for the markings in the photo?
11. May, 12:29
Bernhard Schrock You are welcome Bryn. The decalsheet contains elements for #25,#29 and #31.

3. May, 19:36
Bernhard Schrock Because I was curious I checked today my stash for other kits of Golden Age planes. I found Mr Mulligan as a Testors reissue from mid 80ies. After I looked at the kit's timeline my jaw dropped: it was issued by Hawk in 1949 (yes 1949!!) and is basically still the same. Just a different box.
Mr Mulligan beat Roscoe Turrner's Weddel Williams #44 and won the Bendix Trophy in 1936.
3. May, 19:38
Hanno Kleinecke Oho, this promises to be another lecture in how to tickle the absolute maximum detail out of a most basic old kit,
won't be missing that ! Tuning in !

Stefan Schacht Impressive model and allways helpfull discription of the building progress
1. May, 18:16
Slavo Hazucha The North pole has been conquered - and it's a no small feat! ;)

I really have no idea what more (in the human-eye visible range) could be added here... a very cool plane presented with every bit of Inginöring competence!
1. May, 18:55
Andy Ball @Slavo: I hope the South Pole has been conquered too ????
1. May, 22:54
Alec K Inspirational master building, again. Thank you for sharing
2. May, 00:08
Bernhard Schrock Thanks for watching the South Pole expedition. I now have another expedition across the Pacific planned. :)
3. May, 05:37
Dick Very nice build, my compliments!

Imagine trying to land that plane on a white snowy landscape with those little ski's..

Read the "Story of Southern Cross" by Kingsford-Smith many years ago. Great read about the preparation and the actual trans-Pacific flight.

31. March, 02:30
Bernhard Schrock You are welcome Mates! I bought this kit about 10 years ago or more and found starting difficult because of the quality of the kit. But I must say that all Williams kits are researched well and are correct in the outer dimensions.
In the last time we have had great interest in polar expedition and so I remembered Ellsworth's polar expedition 1936 and his plane. With this most famous Gamma the modeler has great luck: the Polar Star survived and is exhibited in NASM in Washington DC. The official website offers excellent 44 Mpix pictures: you can see each rivet!

Hanno Kleinecke Ah, I see ! Thanks for the links, mates, very interesting story I've never heared of so far......
29. March, 20:31
Adam Gudynowski That was fast! Excellent photos
30. March, 07:29
Slavo Hazucha Beautiful work Bernhard - a really simple basic shape, but then the "devil in detail" peeks out at you from some corner of the model in every picture... :) And some of those details must be microscopic in real life... I particularly like the open side windows, with that position and super-thin material, they add a lot of life & scale-impression! Top job all over!
30. March, 07:42
Bernhard Schrock I just had the second cup of coffee and I'm happy the nice comments. Many of the details are indeed quite small but fortunately the Bellanca model is quite a large plane, and larger than f.e. Hughes H1 in 1:48.

18. July 2018, 02:41
Bernhard Schrock Thank you Mates.
This was my first model which I published in the german modeling magazine ModellFan in 1997. I was so proud because I could assist Uwe Lacina (chief editor) by shooting the pictures and by creating the article in Illustrator (!!). In result of this action I wrote more dozen articles for the next 16 years... This was a great time.
