Friguf Good work try a darker blue next time
7. March at 15:08:28
Peter Schmitt Yeah, it's too light. The decals, especially. But in my defense, even Lufthansa themselves didn't get it right on their first try xD

Donald Dickson II Very nicely done!

Peter Schmitt > You sanded over the cables/wires?

As I said before the crash: the cables run inside the plastic, but I had to sand the LEDs flush with the surface, sometimes I struck a cable there.

> fiddly little wires for motors that I've been trying to stuff into the engine cowlings for 1/144 builds.
Would you be so kind to tell me what motors you used exactly? Im still looking for some...

Łukasz Gliński Seems to me some comments were lost here. That doesn;t mean I stopped to admire your lovely lamp :)
17. December 2018 at 10:59:52
Erik De Smet Peter, Greg mentioned 8mm x 4 mm micromotors . I used thé same for my 1/144 Hercules and for thé tail rotor of my Seaking. I bought them on eBay from a chinese vendor called motorhouse and paid 2 euro for 5, shipment included. It took 3 weeks to get them. I also tried optic fiber on the Herc it worked well at the start, but thé leds went out as they ran at thé same powersource as thé motors. I learned that you have to balance thé circuits with resistors in series.
You could protect smd leds by covering them with a drop of "still water" of similar transparent resin.
17. December 2018 at 11:51:55
Greg Baker Yeah. I remember replying to this one... Erik is correct. Just go on eBay (or Alibaba) and search 8mm x4mm micro motors, you should find them easily enough. They can be a bit touchy and I've killed 3-4 of them for no reason I can figure out. So make sure you order more than the job requires, just in case. They're cheap enough to warrant that.

Now I want to see this Herc... ;)

Erik De Smet Greg, Peter, see : Hercules | Album by opadesmet (1:144)
I killed one motor too, see picture 10 of my album.

Peter Schmitt Thank you two!
Erik, nice Herc!

Peter Schmitt Thank you!

It's not the finished Diorama though, I uploaded the wrong pictures :S

Peter Schmitt I finally built my Stuka from Revell and finished my old Diorama from the eastern front.

The kit was quite crappy, raised panel lines, horrible details, so I had to improvise and enhance it a bit.

First I added pilots, as I wanted to pose the plane flying in my Diorama. You can see how that worked out in the pictures, I think its ok. Tip: Don't buy Airfix' "German Luftwaffe personnell". The plastic does stick less than teflon. Seriously, I found no paint and no glue (not plastic glue, not tamiya ET, not PA, not CA. Nothing. I bought 2 extra pilots after I found that out.

Secondly I had to give the bird new gun barrels, as the originals were... sticks. I think they make a huge difference.

Lastly, I had to bash the shit out of the kit concerning the paint. I preshaded in 3 colors, I painted it, then I added scratches with the sponge technique and a fine brush and lastly added a bit of postshading and the exhaust traces with pigments.

I hope you like it, CC always welcome!

Spanjaard you put quite a bit of effort on it, and it certainly paid off... beautiful model and excellent dio. it looks impressive! great how the metal rod is hidden from view from the front. well done!
12. December 2018 at 09:40:43
Peter Schmitt Thank you! I was surprised myself that I could like the model of a kit that I thought was a total dog...

There are 4 magnets in the fuselage behind the rear gunner that attach to the metal rod, so the plane is detachable and has no hole somewhere. I'll use _that_ technique more often, it's neat.

Guy Rump Impressive dio and great job on the JU 87 :)
