Why is the „hell hole" called a hell hole ? 🙂
Nicht überliefert aber vermutlich weil man sehr tief fallen konnte wenn nicht angeschnallt...
W"ieder ein fantastischer Baubericht eines eher exotischen Modells, Bernhard 👍
Where do you source all these details Bernhard? And when will they land on the market? 😛

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!
Wow looks like it's 1:24 scale!
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.

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.
That worked well and turned out 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!

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. 🙂

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 !!

WOW! What a beauty.
Perfect work on this beautiful aircraft!
Have you thought about building its stablemate the beautiful DH Albatross.
What a precise masterpiece!
Schön, daß du die alten Bilder wieder ausgegraben hast, Bernhard. Ich bin immer noch völlig begeistert!
Really great work, I love it.
Marvellous build and photography. 👍👍👍
Love the cockpit detail
Lovely seeing the front canopy part being this flush with the airframe.

Hey Bernhard, I don't have any words! This is art! Wow, wow, wow. It's a beautiful work! Very, very well done. Respekt!
Knap werk Bernhard. Zoveel detail. Heb met veel plezier naar de foto's gekeken.
Beautiful, is all I can say.
Bernhard, ich bin nicht up-to-date, wie es scheint - wunderschön, mehr muss man da nicht sagen. Eine echte Augenweide!

You were too fast with the build - in the newsletter of Special Hobby was now a lot of nice accessories😉
Lots of fun deatils. 🙂
Another great looking model, Bernhard!
September 27, 2020
Unique aeroplane and a sharp and clean work as usual Bernhard 👍
This is amazing Top-Master Class work Bernhard, no more words. Just my hat down many times. 👍 👍 👍 👍 👍 And another thumb up for detailed build description 👍 ! It's enough for a book!
Wonderful job! Great research and finish - it's a pleasure to look at it! (as with all your models!).
Such quality work! A great deal of patience is required with this kit but the patience and execution elevated this model to the next level.

Now, that is something for my mama's baby boy ! Front row for me please
The most beautiful plane ever. Waiting for more.
I'll be keeping an eye on that one too. You build three masterpieces in the time I clumsily glue one kit together. How do you do that? Plus your pictures are crystal clear.
I am curious about that. The kit is on its way to me right now.😉

This is a model of museum quality! And it looks like in 1/32. Excellent work again, Bernhard.
how did i miss this beauty before???? amazing job as usual
A real beauty. Well done!
Wunderschönes Ergebnis Bernhard.
Du baust diese Golden Era Flieger wirklich wie kein zweiter Bravo 👍
Bin immer total baff wenn ich Deine Baufortschritte vefolge und was Du aus den teils wirklich her mittelmässigen kits rausholst 👍
And that, folks, is how it's done. Fantastic and inspirational work, again. 👍

no idea how i missed this one before.... this beauty deserves to be in a museum.... wow....
my son would say: AmazeBalls!! how/what is the cable/wire bundle hold downs created installed? such as on the rotor head or cockpit bulkhead wall. these are exquisite.
picture 31, 32 and 181 the tiny hold down clamps for wire routing and securing to surfaces....
Great to see this pop-up again! Not sure you can see so many details, so clean and matching in style, scale appearance & execution in 48-scale anywhere else...
Yes, I love every time this one comes up.
