Jos Jansen I had missed this, I am not so familiar with Dutch birds before or during WWII ... but this kit is definitely worth following. Cool that there were still non-commissioned officers behind the control stick ... ;)

MWK Who do we contact to get one of the corrected cowlings? I have the Hobbycraft kit, and some aftermarket, so all I would need is the corrected cowling.

Erik Leijdens A lot of airforces had NCO's as pilots Jos. I believe that even In the 50's the KLu had sergeant's as Meteor/Thunderjet etc pilots.
@MWK, look at my link in in of my earlier comments. There you will find a review from the guy who made them.

Erik Leijdens Thanks Ben, me too :)

Erik Leijdens Finished the engine and managed to position it on the "correct" place..

Erik Leijdens A first coat of primer to check for imperfections revealed a lot of air bubbles in the resin. But overall it looks nice!

Wim van der Luijt plastic surgery is looking mighty fine!

Sören Reifert Ok so a very fragile build where you have to be careful.
Thanks for the hints Erik!
Really looking forward to see yours finished ;)
15. November 2018 at 11:52:01
Erik Leijdens Thanks Soren! Will do my best mate
15. November 2018 at 20:58:19
Gordon Sørensen Cockpit looks great, Erik! And with all that glass, everything will be visible. Engine looks good too. Are you going to do the "squiggly" camoflague?
16. November 2018 at 00:34:56
Erik Leijdens Yes, Gordon it's a real greenhouse! Inviting for the super detailers. I'll go with the kit details :). Yes, will try the squiggly pattern. Saw this one in the Valiant wings book with some good reference photos. First the standard splinter scheme in RLM70 and RLM71 and then RLM76 "squiggles"
16. November 2018 at 09:30:55
Wim van der Luijt looking forward to the painting stage Erik
16. November 2018 at 09:49:44
Alec K Great work so far, and great subject
16. November 2018 at 12:17:41
Jens I'm about to do the night hunter, too, very nice to see you master the greenhouse
02. January at 17:12:18
Erik Leijdens Well Jens, i'll make it as normal A-1 Uhu. See the project cover photo. But I have put him on hold now since I'm in Dutch airplane mood lately :D

Erik Leijdens Actually, the stand is included in the kit Treehugger! Off course you have to paint it though.
02. December 2018 at 22:35:29
Holger Kranich Won-der-ful build, Eric! You can sell those piccies to Revell for their website! ;)
07. December 2018 at 08:23:48
Erik Leijdens Haha Holger, they can have them for free!

Jos Jansen Well done Erik, step out of your comfort zone and then build such a fantastic u-boat ... inspiring man!
07. December 2018 at 21:12:24
Erik Leijdens Thanks Jos :). It was nice to build something different. But this is a great kit too, it really builds itself.
08. December 2018 at 11:45:46
Treehugger I see that even with such model kits in 1:48 scale, they don't make perforations along the hull. I don't understand why Revell kept the holes shut. I plan to drill out and sand clean the elongated holes on the sides. Some photo etch aftermarket parts provide some perforated parts for smaller openings. On the inside of the hull, afaik the water slosh around and the crew compartment is inside this container.
08. December 2018 at 12:21:22
Jos Jansen ...Erik, you have indeed inspired me, already added to my wish list .... ;)
08. December 2018 at 13:56:40
Erik Leijdens Dunno Treehugger! I just filled them up with some black paint.
@Jos, good to hear that mate! Looking forward to your build! The type VIIc/41 is the most widely available Revell 1/144 type VII uboat atm.
