Watching! Many years ago at the Reno Air Races I saw the full-size reproduction. Very sleek looking aircraft.

Thx Mates. This was an easy decision because the kit parts were not correct (upper edge should be straight, edge too thick) and lacked details. I spent in all only 2.5 hours.

Hallo Bernhard, nice start, I take a seat. Cheers Stefan

Looking good, never seen such a landing gear before... When looking at the museum model, landing this beast must have been quite an adventure, sight from the cockpit to the ground was as good as nill...

Bart: indeed, you are right. Because of that the seat could be rised after sliding the aft (divided) part of the canopy into the cockpit. I can't imagine how this worked: the cockpit is very tide and on the pictures you can't see any rails.

As usual I used my special mix for NMF-finish: 50% Testors-metalizer and 50% Testors-Sealer.
I discovered that paper can be used as polishing tool too: on one edge of the windscreen I had spraying dust and cold polish them away with a corner of 2 x folded paper hold with a fine tweezers.

Looking awesome Bernhard 👍 Can you say which metalizer and sealer you used (product numbers)? Thank you.

Bernhard Schrock
Hi Alec, see please the pictures 20-22. Aluminum toned up with Titanium (darker) and down (more grey) with Magnesium. It's important to have an even and smooth surface (for example 1500). Note: it's possible so sand and polish the Metalizer&Sealer mixture. Unfortunately it's impossible to get this products in Europe because the EU-Lösungsmittelreform (~2014).
Few months ago I had great luck and buy in german eBay several bottles🙂

Just stunning Bernard. 👍
Your scratch building and attention to detail is why your the champion you are. 🙂

I haven't built my long wing version of the Racer, so this is great to follow. Very nice job!

Gordon Sørensen
Another great finish, Bernhard! Your attention to detail, and skill to recreate that detail, is fantastic! No main canopy?

Alec K
Flawless execution and unusual subject, in true Schrock tradition 👍
30 April 2019, 12:17
Alec, you are completely right, every Schrock build is a Trade Mark 👍 and this one is no exception!

Saw this beauty ( almost finished ) live on monday, this superior craftsmanship never ceases to stun me !

Nathan Dempsey
Elegant finish Bernhard. Another fine build.
30 April 2019, 14:33
Amazing build. I love this and the fact it's not something you see everyday.
30 April 2019, 15:38
Very beautiful! I like the metal effect.

Bernhard Schrock
Thx mates for you extraordinary feedback.
Gordon: I found a hint on an website that the H-1 provided a special seat (adjustable in heigh) because the very streamlined canopy. The pilot could raise the seat upwards for better sight during start and landing. But I could not find out how exactly the (divided in left and right half) canopy was stowed in the fuselage. Because of that I left it outside the fuselage.

This one is stunning too, of course! (I have been a bit confused at first, when looking at Hanno's album at the same time, to be sincere...;) )

Hi Robert: this is the groupbuild picture of the groupbuild🙂. The "Longwing-variant" (right in the picture) is build by Hanno.

Thanks, Bernhard - I have figured it out after a while 😉
