Patrick; what is the reason why do you use white as base color? Imo white is not optimal base for colors such orange or red. The "difference" is to great to produce a homogeneous saturation. As usual I'm using for orange yellow as base and for red pinkish grey as base (see f.e. the NH-3 album).
3. August, 07:41
Orange? Great copper painting ;) Let's wait for the final pictures. Absolut great work, as usual - in Anlehnung an ein Lied: "Er _ist_ ein Zauberer"!

Tolles Projekt - erinnert mich an meinen Mitflug mit der UH-1D im Rahmen des ULR 1999 Otto-Lilienthal-Kaserne Heeresflugplatz Roth bei Nürnberg :)

Hallo Bernhard, die weisse Grundierung war nur weil ich die neue Tamiya Lacquer Farben ausprobieren wollte. Deswegen hatte ich für eine leichte Grundfarbe gewählt. Leider musste ich etwas schleifen und erhielt so einige dunklere Stellen, die ich nur sehr mühsam bewältigen konnte. Vielleicht dass da eine Schicht gelb besser gewesen wäre. Aaaaaaber, deshalb war es ja auch ein Teststück und habe ich jetzt schon zwei Sachen gelernt. 1) Orange ist, obwohl meine Landesfarbe und meine Lieblingsfarbe, eine sehr schwierig zu bewältigende Farbe, und 2) Eine homogene, bevorzüglich gelbe Grundierung sollte besser wirken. Vielen Dank für diene Erklärung! :)

Looking almost like the "Bronze Tiger" Typhoon type of Orange in those pics ;) And really good work with the faded touches!

I don't get to do much of Orange works myself unfortunately, but I'd say this color & its tonal brethren really are essentially very social creatures... It just matters that bit more what's under them & next them to bring out the right final tone... :)

Seeing you treat the Geisha-esque art of Orange/Red & White, I'm sure the German Green-Orange coupling will come out just as great...

This indeed looks more like a bronze than an orange. But in the end the result is important. Or how we in Germany say: "Entscheidend ist, was hinten rauskommt." :D
And I have no doubts at all that this will end how it has started: exceptional.

I did not expect to create so much of an impact with my quick pictures shot in bad light... It REALLY is orange. :)

do you usually use varnish in the mix? Do you have a clear coat on first?

how do you remove the excess wash?

lots of on earth did you sand that styrene so smooth at the front of the plane?
7. June, 08:15
Bernhard Schrock
Moin moin Lochsa-River :) No problem, I'm happy about questions. In the most cases I'm using no clear varnish in the wash-mix, just for white.
Usually I'm using no clear varnish for entire surfaces of the model. That would spoil the effect of an irregular shine of the model. My white (in fact very light grey) was glossy enough for a model in 1:48 in my opinion. I'm convinced that there is also a scale effect in the shininess of the surface. A very glossy surface would look wrong in a 1:48 model und even worse in a 1:72....

before sanding I protect the remaning surface from damage with Tamiya tape. In this case I used Micro mesh 3200 for the transition area between the fuselage front and clear part. So I did not have deep scratches and i could polish the area with a cotton swab & polishing paste quickly.

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... :)

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
