Treehugger I had no idea this jet existed. Sort of looks like a mirage III or something. :) Very nice with the pilot inside in his seat!

Slavo Hazucha This is as old as I am ! And I am also starting to feel some subtle yellowing recently :) nice to see something my age, thx for the pics, looks great even today

Holger Kranich This wakes up some childhood memories... I build the same liverie from a Revell kit and it is still the most beautiful bicentennial cat for me! :)
14. September at 10:42:52
Holger Kranich But something itches me with the front gear. It looks retracted. But anyway, love the paintjob!
14. September at 13:57:34
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you guys, hello Holger, real Tomcat looks quite the same , Miramar 1976, Hasegawa is very light on the front gear. This was the first generation Hasegawa, model is built 1978, not that good...(as Fine Molds now)
15. September at 09:46:43
Maciej Bellos Beautiful! It stood the test of time, better than most of us. Well done Thomas!

12. September at 17:45:24

12. September at 18:31:36
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you Gordon and Bryn! (All enamel) Revell gloss white, Humbrol dark green, interior gray, Testors Dayglo orange, zinc chromate, 90% is billions of crazy good decals from kit (cartograf), even with dayglo!
12. September at 21:26:34
Bryn Crandell Thank you fopr the paint intel. I have one of the older Hasegawa kits Fuji T-1A (Hasegawa A14, 1:72) Don't know if I have the Cartograf decals, lol. I'll do the best I can with what I have.

14. September at 07:39:51
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you, Bernd, Łukasz, Stephan! And this is a quite perfect model, the decals are unbelievable good, but around 200 stencils, to much for me to count, i needed that time to place them....
14. September at 08:28:44

Glynn Jacobs Hi Thomas,

A most EXCELLENT job on your Mirage IV, very inspiring! I too have this kit in my stash and have a few questions about your build, if you would so indulge me;

What paint colors did you use?
Besides the second round camera on the WRONG side, what else is wrong with the Pavla CT-52? and,
How did you scratch-build (fabricate) the wing tip and rear fuselage-mounted E.C.M. "bullets" and left wing "Barracuda" pylon?

Very Impressed,

Glynn "WARDOG" Jacobs
21. July at 07:07:04
Stephan Ryll Very nice build
21. July at 10:59:04
Thomas Hopfensperger Hello Glynn,
all cameras are on the wrong side, its simply a mirrored fault, and there is much too less detail, no interior and wrong inlets and too short fuselage, everything else i made from scratch, except the Barracuda pod which came from Heller. The colors i mixed for myself because i found no real good ones...
Cheers, Tom
21. July at 20:03:09
Glynn Jacobs Exceptional work, Sir!

Daniel Klink Fine Kobayashi Bird Thomas Did you use Decals for the camo?
4. October 2018 at 19:38:30
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you mates! :)
Yes Daniel, in Modellfan 12 will be the test of Tamiyas extra decals (they are thick, but good)
4. October 2018 at 19:48:14
Daniel Klink Ah thank you.. In the Aoshima kit they are implemented in the kit. I guess they are also on the thicker side. japanese kit producers tend to thick decals who needs a lot of softener...

But once again great Result mate

Gordon Sørensen Great looking Hornet, Thomas! When I was taking engineering, we got a tour of Cold Lake in '88. The aircraft was being tested for stress on the vertical stab and a few other places. They were definately looking a lot more "used".
20. June at 14:39:52
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you Gordon! Happy guy! She was in Robbie Shaws Superbase 18 book (Osprey 1990). 907 made there the unguided rocket tests. Was by far the cleanest of the test force.

1. April at 10:14:12
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you mates! Its the new tool, Lukasz. Weathering is only color, Hanno, i carved a few panel lines on deck where visible, the new tool has none, it is in ModellFan 4 now for the WIP...

Project: FB-18G Marineflieger
Scratchbuilt
10. March at 22:17:18 Share
Thomas Hopfensperger German news:
Since the early 1970s, the acquisition of the YF-17 has been pursued as part of the LWF program and years ago Germany seamlessly and silently transferred it to the LWB, Lightweight Bomber Project. On the 1st of April the first FB-18G celebrates roll out.
Surprise, however, is that the Marineflieger in MFG 3 are reactivated because all land bases are rededicated for residential development.
Through pioneering steam catapult technology, the new bases under the project "Flieger-Horst" under the leadership of the Ministry of Interior Horst Seehofer will occupy only fractions of former space and act as structural aid measures first stationed on the islands of Usedom, Sylt and Heligoland.
1. April at 12:05:20
Holger Kranich Now thats a cool story! You just forgot the developement of the new german carrier! ;) ;)
2. April at 07:13:06
Stephan Ryll Very nice story for 1th of april,,, ;)
2. April at 07:25:48
Neuling Rumor goes that one of the secret new bases is located in the Hohengebrachinger Forst, where the gases of the former garbage dump ground Posthof are used instead of steam to catapult the planes into the air.
2. April at 08:16:46
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you! Yes, and the FB-18G Großhornissen will be reinforced against Lirpaloof birdstrikes and made fool-proof as well...

Landbased only until we have the new franco-german carrier "Charles de Kohl" for our new "Großhornisse" Superbug... :)
2. April at 09:03:12
Holger Kranich Charles de Kohl! ROFL :D
2. April at 09:10:05
Bernhard Schrock You are not only an excellent modeler but an excellent photoshoper :)
2. April at 09:20:00
Thomas Hopfensperger @ Neuling: Posthof! Gases come close :)
@ Bernhard: Thank you for the roses! Didnt want to spoil my Pukin´Dogs sweetie....
2. April at 09:28:16
Daniel Thats what I have heard, since the ministy of finance rejected the deal for the new Trump class carrier for being too costly - mainly due to the golden tower installation :P
2. April at 15:21:48
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you mates, its a great pleasure to be here with you. I had to learn what ROFL is, Holger! :)

Holger Kranich Hi Thomas, did you do a kit-bash on this one? I build the Revell Hornet years ago, i liked it very much especially the decals.
8. February at 09:42:58
Thomas Hopfensperger Hi Holger,
no full bash, Academy is so good, but i used about 10 better parts of the Revell-jet because its too wrong for me to build a model of this , i used also Hasegawa parts where they are the best (Sidewinders) and i will use the rest of Revell to pimp a (early model) Hasegawa build
8. February at 19:18:48
Holger Kranich Sounds good, kepp us posted! ;)

Stephan Ryll Very nice F-4 got some nice pictures from Goose Bay 1989 with a similare camo but with a more used look. Good work
3. February at 20:05:02
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you Stephan! Hallo Patrick, nimm die Hasegawa und die Revell F-4 und vergleiche die Cockpitsektion. Die Bilder 2, 5, 10 zeigen, dass oben am Cockpit Bild 2 abgeschliffen ist, bis das Hasegawacockpitglas passt, das ja richtig und viel höher als das falsche flache Revellglas ist. Der gesamte Rumpfrücken bis zum Leiterk ist abgeschliffen und neu graviert. Auch unten ist Material abgeschliffen, so dass alles niedriger wird. Trotzdem ist der Rückenwulst immer noch zu groß, verglichen mit Hasegawa. Auf 5 siehst du auch die geänderte Nase...
4. February at 13:55:15
Patrick Hagelstein Vielen Dank! Heut Nachmittag werde ich beide Rumpfschalen mal nebeneinander setzen um zu sehen wie sie sich verhalten. Schade dass man den Rumpfrücken abschleifen muss, der ist ja viel sauberer graviert wie den Hasegawa Teil. :( Nah ja, wir sind ja Modellbauer und keine Schachtelschüttler. ;) Gestern habe ich schon mal die Lufteinläufe verglichen und erst jetzt viel mir auf wieviel größer die Revell Teile sind. Da ich die Einläufe eh abdecke, will ich mal versuchen die Revell Teile ein zu sägen und dan schmaler zu falten. Mal sehen was ich machen kann. :)
4. February at 14:54:55
4. February at 17:59:17
Patrick Hagelstein Ich hab mir mal was ganz anderes einfallen lassen. Ich hatte noch irgendwo einen Academy F-4J aufbewahrt für einen VF-114 Vogel. Ich habe mir die verschiedene Rumpfschalen mal nebeneinander gestellt und der Academy F-4J ist bis auf das Nasenteil identisch mit den Hasegawa Rumpfteil. Die Hasegawa F-4E/F Nase passt genau an das Academy Teil! Die Revell Flügelteile haben genau dieselbe Konturen wie die Academy Teile, aber haben nicht die Navy spezifische Wülste und Katapulthaken. Könnte mal sehen wie das alles hinpasst. Das obere Teil der Revell Leitflosse ist berüchtigt wegen der schräg verlaufenden Oberseite; das Hasegawa Teil passt genau auf das Academy Teil und das hat auch noch mal die bessere Detaillierung. Weil die Lufteinläufe und den Rumpfrücken kleiner/schmaler sind, bräuchte ich da nichts weg zu schleifen und kann ich mir die Nachgravierarbeit besparen. Einzig die Unterschiedliche Paneelen zwischen F-4J und F-4F sollten dann berüchsichtigt werden. Al in al vielleicht nicht die meist logische Umbauten, aber ich möchte es mal probieren. Nochmal vielen Dank für Deine Erklärungen und Hilfe! :)
4. February at 23:25:22
Patrick Hagelstein Grad mal die Academy Cockpithaube auf das Revell Vorderrumpfsegment gesetzt: erst jetzt sehe ich wie falsch das Revell Teil ist.... :(
5. February at 00:33:23
Thomas Hopfensperger Yes, kitbashing helps here.... :)

Of course i know many of your models and i like a lot the seagulls of U2 Bernhards, but i couldnt reference them because i finished mine early in april 2016, the article took so long.

Thomas Hopfensperger Thanks Ekki! @Treehugger: in ModellFan 2017/10 there is a big build feature of my tchaika :)
17. December 2018 at 18:46:19
Thomas Hopfensperger @Treehugger: Bernhard Schrock/Yellowwing has WIP here, and together with another Be-12 from Flugi Bernhard Pethe also on modellversium. Great Tchaikas, the two!
I changed mostly visible faults, as shorter MLG with better cutout in fuselage, sleeker fuselage behind cockpit, rounder oilcoolers, bigger radius on keel, shorter spinners, adding missing window RHS below cockpit, adding jetpipes, newer MAD boom, blade antennas and some more......
