Caramel Crash (BP-Cup 1946) completed
Upgraded specially for UK Nationals 1946 (BP-Cup) the griffon powered Caramel Crash #44 (formerly a Spitfire Mk. XIV ZT198 ) were sponsored by Cadbury and piloted by Sir Sirius A. Moose-Ment. The airplane won the final race in Telford and reached 445,52 mph (717 km/h).
Great subject- executed with virtuoso skills for sure! I am looking forward to this!
Thank you Roland. At least 50% of the praise go to David Funke for helping me design the artwork and printing this immaculate decals.
Bin schon gespannt auf den flitzer!
Another creative outbreak on your bench ! A shame that Cadbury's and Hershey's choc racplanes could only be flown under refrigerated conditions to aviod meltdown... 🙂 Rumours say that Hershey's pilot John D.( Doe)Nut could'nt be stopped from nibbling on the cockpit interior.... 😄
I'm speechless again, just shown ingeniously how it should be 👍 👍 👍
Another racer, I love it! 👍 Following.
At home I have at least 200 Humbrol tins. At least ten of those are reds and ten of those are deep blues not to mention two or three purple. Despite of this I experimented two hours or more with different bases and combination to match the violet of the decals (THX David for printing of the wonderful decals!).
Crimson (H20) in combination with Baltic Sea blue (metallic, H52) and a little bit of white finally resulted in matching the hue.
Looking great, two hours well invested !
It looks faster already! 😉
Excelent color match
Thank you Mates. Indeed the most time consuming task (painting) is done.
Hanno: Sadly, the unusual tastiness of the entire aircraft caused the complete vanishing of the project into -literally- nothing. So it is all just a sweet dream... 🙂
Yeah, yeah, sad, but unavoidably true..... but, on the other hand: the first ever recorded successful complete recycling of an entire aircraft in history ((((😄)))
Wow Bernhard, what a beauty! And so carefully built and painted 👍
A very nice racer. I'm looking forward to see the finished Spitfire.
Looks great so far Bernhard! Standard or contrapropps ?
Hi Bernhard, I like your modelling beside the main stream. And perfectly done as well.
The worlds fastest chocolatebar ! Looking awesome, keep a close look at Sir Sirius, don't let him take a bite.....
That is a beautiful bird! 👍 👍
A new Lady on the floor, Excelent work Bernhard!
Gentlemen: thank you very much. You have a Race🙂
"Beside the mainstream": exactly because I think one more Mk XIV in grey/green would look just like all the other 36 already built...
One can do a NMF... is the size difference that obvious with regards to spits from other manufacturers?
Well done, Sir!
No matter what you build Bernhard, I just love your craftmanship and attention to detail!
THX David and THX Patrick.
Bart: I'm not sure if I can answer you question. I only know one kit (Academy).
Not your everyday Spitfire - very cool paint scheme.
Wanted to bump it for all to enjoy.
A Spitfire delight...
Now that is a cool looking bird.
Stunning, what a feast for my eyes.
Cadbury milk chocolate ......... mmmmmmmmm ..... a feast for the tummy ...... (very nice build btw!)
Wow it looks awesome 🤩
How gorgeous! Very fine paintwork!
