Bart Goesaert Nice and sleek aircraft... beautiful start. Seems like a weird tail...
3. April at 14:56:42
Nathan Dempsey I'm following. I want to see how this beautiful silver bird turns out.
3. April at 15:16:50
Hanno Kleinecke Heee, Frühstart ! :) :) Da hängt die Latte schon jetzt weit oben.....

Flop_Se Really nice work! You're of godfather of styrene!
14. April at 18:13:38
Hanno Kleinecke Superb scratchbuilding, undercarriage looks awesome !
14. April at 19:47:22
Bernhard Schrock 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.

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

Bart Goesaert 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...
15. April at 07:40:06
Bernhard Schrock 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.

Bernhard Schrock 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.

Alec K Looking awesome Bernhard Can you say which metalizer and sealer you used (product numbers)? Thank you.
20. April at 12:09:20
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 :)

Bart Goesaert Splendid paintjob... finely painted or masked on the wing details..
20. April at 14:40:12
Alec K Thanks very much for the info Bernhard
20. April at 15:03:22
Hanno Kleinecke Wow, that engine ! Cowling struts look superb !
25. April at 19:50:52
Bart Goesaert What Hanno said... ;)
26. April at 08:12:28
Kerry COX Just stunning Bernard.
Your scratch building and attention to detail is why your the champion you are. :)
26. April at 08:44:40
Klaas van der Wielen I haven't built my long wing version of the Racer, so this is great to follow. Very nice job!
27. April at 16:41:19
Gordon Sørensen Another great finish, Bernhard! Your attention to detail, and skill to recreate that detail, is fantastic! No main canopy?
30. April at 12:13:33
Alec K Flawless execution and unusual subject, in true Schrock tradition
30. April at 12:17:36
bughunter Alec, you are completely right, every Schrock build is a Trade Mark and this one is no exception!
30. April at 12:57:25
Hanno Kleinecke Saw this beauty ( almost finished ) live on monday, this superior craftsmanship never ceases to stun me !
30. April at 14:02:00
Nathan Dempsey Elegant finish Bernhard. Another fine build.
30. April at 14:33:00
M M Amazing build. I love this and the fact it's not something you see everyday.
30. April at 15:38:24
Neuling Very beautiful! I like the metal effect.
30. April at 18:28:50
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.

Thomas Hopfensperger Hallo Berhard, darf ich sagen, ich finde deinen Racer einfach klasse!
