Hans Robben Maskol is ammonia based and that doesn't work well with brass.
7. June at 17:51:19
Hans Robben Also don't put maskol on acrylic paint, it will disolve it.
7. June at 18:09:49
David Funke perfect, I´m in!
10. June at 14:58:27
Slavo Hazucha A very promising start, great details added, I particularly admire the switches on the center console... Hope something of that lovely stuff will remain visible once the clear parts are on!
10. June at 15:16:47
Patrick Hagelstein I have to agree with Hans... Found that out the hard way while masking a windscreen covered in Future...
18. June at 18:06:08
Bernhard Schrock Very often you have to reduce the thickness. It's important to see when the material is thin enough. The best way to manage such a task: I light my work bench with a powerful lamp, powerful enough to shine THROUGH the material. Voila!
18. June at 18:12:26
Thomas Hopfensperger Hallo Berhard, this will be a heisses geraet! :)
19. June at 10:23:13
Nathan Dempsey The cockpit & the rest of the interior is coming out very nice.
19. June at 11:59:38
Bart Goesaert nice work so far...
19. June at 15:40:24
Björn Svedberg This is a must see build, I'm in! You are off to a nice start!
20. June at 16:01:08
bughunter Oh, my favorite helicopter in your hands - that will the best 1/48 Seaking seen ever Great work, but I think the mesh could be finer as it is on the plastic parts (merciless macro!).
20. June at 16:56:13
Bernhard Schrock Thx. Bughunter: it seams that now I have to check each part two times before glueing. :)
23. June at 10:53:46
Stefan Schacht Hallo Bernhard, nice start, I take a seat. Cheers Stefan
23. June at 11:00:04
Patrick Hagelstein Although the sponsons look like the real thing now, will those pins be able to support the weight of the model?
23. June at 17:05:17
Bernhard Schrock Thx Patrick. I used 0,5 mm needle (steel). I'm sure that this is strength enough in connection with the support strut.
23. June at 17:17:28
Patrick Hagelstein OK, cool! If that is hypodermic needle, that's really though stuff.
23. June at 18:30:46
Holger Kranich Na hier bin ich doch dabei!
24. June at 06:17:51
Kurt Reichert Muss ich auch sehen! Bin dabei!

Slavo Hazucha Very cool details, I love the sunken handles!
28. June at 20:37:49
Jens I really like it :)
29. June at 15:44:54
Hanno Kleinecke Wow, that instrument panel is just insane ! Looking like the real thing and functional. The seatcover is very convincing too, exemplary as usual :)
3. July at 20:35:22
Kees Kleijwegt I agree with Hanno, instrument panel is simply amazing!!
3. July at 21:10:59
Michael Prator wow ... nice details
3. July at 21:27:57
Patrick Hagelstein Awesome!....
4. July at 00:13:34
Slavo Hazucha What a lovely dash! Is there a particular reason the attitude indicators are in such an inclined position?
4. July at 06:08:24
Nathan Dempsey They are probably in the powered down position. Just a guess.
4. July at 12:00:10
Melchior Following! I think Nathan is right, when no battery is on, the instruments with gyros show whatever they want. After Battery power on, the Pilots have to pull the instrument knobs to align the attitude indicators.
4. July at 12:49:01
Slavo Hazucha Thanks Nathan & Melchior, exactly the info I was looking for
4. July at 12:58:40
Bernhard Schrock Thx mates. I'm glad that you like the pilots workbench. Thx for watching the correct function of the instruments. I checked both and discovered that the charge 45/EDR-a has a male function. My mechanic changed both and fixed the problem. :)
4. July at 14:22:13
Florian H. Following this amazing built
5. July at 09:23:40
Bernhard Schrock Today was the day of the windows: I managed different painting tasks on the windows. Inside of the large cockpit side windows is yellow. 3 oval cabin windows has black rim (rubber). Upper cockpits windows are more turquoise than green (despite description in the instructions). The upper 1/3 of the bulged side windows is green.
7. July at 18:15:09
Jens Ohhh Bernhard, you and your mastermind only cause me a problem, more and more attempts fail and enen in the dustbin ;) simply spectacular as you handle many problems with simple means but my Sea King stays in the Stock, better for the plastic ;)
7. July at 18:19:48
Augie Bernhard, that Sir is superb! makes me scared to look at mine lol
7. July at 19:03:08
Bernhard Schrock This time I took a lot time mix the orange. Not only the color was crucial but the "shininess". This is important regarding dust partial inclusion. It's an mix of H132, H69, H18 and H19.
9. July at 17:48:19
Zsolt Czegle Schöne Arbeit bisher. Ich bin dabei....
9. July at 18:38:25
Chris Greathouse Seakings are awesome! I'm on for the ride!
9. July at 18:51:41
Slavo Hazucha Every small step of this is inspiring... The embedded lenses in the pylons - wow!
11. July at 16:01:58
Holger Kranich Very nice sponsons! Especially the landing lights as Slavo already mentioned! :)
12. July at 06:37:59
Ben Schumacher Absolutely perfect - as usual, Bernhard! I am eagerly waiting for more progress.
12. July at 07:57:05
Holger Kranich I´m looking forward the rotorhead!
13. July at 11:40:36
Hanno Kleinecke Interior padding looks very convincing ! Looks like you've changed your mind, away from the initial Maskol - Idea ? Bare Metal or lead foil I presume ?
17. July at 20:39:51
Ian Oostelbos First look in my feed thought it was a sub. Looking great so far!!!! Gunna be huge!!!
17. July at 23:13:23
Bernhard Schrock Thx for the nice comments. Tesa as cover for lights is surprisingly a very taff and durable material. It hase never come loose yet. Interior padding: I changed my plans und used thick self adhesive aluminium foil. Very quickly to produce and very easy to apply.
18. July at 05:42:56
Melchior Your way to describe the work is just awsome! It will help other people who will build this chopper. Very nice work so far
18. July at 06:36:25
Kerry COX This has me thinking of doing the Marine1 of the President of the USA. :-0
18. July at 06:41:28
Tim Vereecke tuned in! (of course)
18. July at 07:11:01
Slavo Hazucha Tour d´excellence continues - a pleasure to watch this!
18. July at 07:18:59
Patrick Hagelstein Are you serious Bernhard? I can almost imaging those switches are working.... :o
26. July at 15:35:05
Dutch Oh my, I am missing the show! You know how much I love to watch you work Bernhard. Very impresive, so far!
26. July at 15:40:09
Patrick Hagelstein Yeah... now I know for sure: knitting would be a better suiting hobby for me.... Seeing Bernhard's work always humbles me. ;)
26. July at 18:05:49
Bernhard Schrock Just testet the funktion of the switches: they work - and even individually! :)
26. July at 18:15:44
26. July at 19:01:09
Slavo Hazucha As expected, the switches work perfectly :D Next, some working cockpit ventilation fans would seem proper... ;)
26. July at 20:49:22
Dutch Hmm, I would be satisfied if the cyclic and collective worked the rotors and tail rotor. Bernhard, just joking, but what are the red & white lights for? Anti-collision beacon and interior or tail lights? Are you going to use fiber optics to spread the light around?
26. July at 20:59:08
Hanno Kleinecke As we all suffer from the current weather conditions ( burning heat in Germany), I would suggest to focus now on proper airconditioning aboard.... ;) of course that would be no problem for you
Superb work on that panel !
„Dem Ingeniör ist nichts zu schwör" ;)
26. July at 21:17:50
Bernhard Schrock Back from vacation. Let see which parts I can "electrify". By the way: both LED's just kidding, I just quickly cobbled the parts together :)
The inner side of canopy framing on the original is black. I mixed dark grey and sea blue. If you don't have a reference it's impossible to see that it's not black. That make that easier to airbrush the light grey.
11. August at 08:14:20
Kerry COX Bernard, take a look at Augies F-111 build where she has used a stunning thing called 'glow tape' for her 'slime lights' , possibly for some internal/cockpit low light illuminations with your Sea King mate. :)
11. August at 08:26:45
Patrick Hagelstein :D I'm afraid my 26 July post caused all this. ;)
11. August at 16:22:50
Slavo Hazucha Bernahrd, the cleannes of your work really amazes me... Absolute master-class modeling in live progress, a pleasure to watch!
11. August at 16:39:44
John Ballman Wow, Craftsman at work here. Thanks for sharing your build pictures. Very well done.
14. August at 19:06:05
Bernhard Schrock Thx Kerry, Patrick, Slavo and John. I'm glad to read such nice comments :)
Today was a great modeling moment; demasking of all windows. It was worth the effort to mask and seal the interior? Is the inner side clean or dusty?
After taking off the masks I was surprise how well everything turn out. I retouched some parts for about one hour with a small brush and now I'm very happy with the results.
16. August at 19:30:14
Slavo Hazucha Dream-outcome on the clear parts... particularly the side & lower windows betray zero scale deformation & warping, happy indeed you can be :) the two-color side bulb also fits perfectly... Hope all goes as well in the final steps, a masterpiece in the making...
16. August at 19:40:38
Zbynek Honzik Fantastic work, Bernhard!
17. August at 06:14:32
Konrad Limmer Very very impressive Bernhard! The details are amazing like it a lot ! Vote for Chopper of the year !
17. August at 06:38:56
Stephan Ryll As always Bernhard :) OUTSTANDING
17. August at 07:14:02
Bernhard Schrock You feedback admire me very and it was the best motivation to do my best applying decals. Ready minus very few corrections with a small brush (tomorrow). Now it's time for a glass red wine and Pixar's Ratatouille with my son :)
17. August at 18:22:59
Augie awesome bernhard.. awesome
17. August at 18:38:27
Kerry COX So crisp and clean Bernard, and one to be proud of mate. ;)
Salute. !
(I love the curled up comms cable.) :) :)
It adds so much depth when the detail is added.
17. August at 19:19:23
Slavo Hazucha Now the Hinomaru is in place, the color selection just makes so much sense... I anticipated it, but it's cool to see it happen. Well struck & I guess a wash & final treatment will make the effect just that much better (already being great).

PS: I guess these were decals... not that one could see that from any perspective... ;)
17. August at 19:42:31
Bernhard Schrock Thank you Augie, Kerry and Slavo. Indeed I has a lot of fun applying the decals. I must say that Hasegawas decals are excellent. But in my opinion the "key to success" is Mr Colors Mark Setter Nr. 232 (the original version, not the NEO version Nr. 234). In combination with this fluid it's possible applying decals on each surface (matt, or semimatt too) without silvering. Furthermore after additional applying the red softer of Microscale the carrier film is no more visible (has the same shininess as the surface). That is the reason that you can't see the carrier film. The additional advantage is the fact that no varnish is necessary. Mr. Setter 232 is in my opinion the "product of the decade" :)
17. August at 20:10:55
Slavo Hazucha Thanks Bernard for the decal intel - really valuable info for me, since I work with MRP's & oils a lot which creates a very nice irregular semi matt/gloss surface effect which I like a lot & am hesitant to ruin with varnish coats, which leads to the obvious conflict with decal carrier film... Will definitely try No. 232!
17. August at 22:23:35
ice Already one of the best 1/48-scale Sea Kings I know of.
19. August at 17:24:12
Bryn Crandell So clean. The deatil is amazing.
23. August at 19:57:46
Hanno Kleinecke Beautiful „legs", excellent work on these winch struts and wires !
24. August at 08:26:49
Bernhard Schrock Thx mates. Today morning I added the last remaining 4 wires per strut and prepared the wheel wells.
24. August at 08:42:02
Kerry COX Just stunning. :)
24. August at 11:14:44
Patrick Hagelstein Your builds keep amazing me....
24. August at 13:46:11
Augie God Bernhard, that is (*&^^ amazing!
