stevez Thomas, great paint and weathering! What color and brand did you use for deck, hull? FS #? thanks.
17. March, 19:29
Frank Krüger A great model! A fantastic painting and aging !!! A real work of art !!!!!!! Congratulations!!!! :)
18. March, 17:16
William O. Soooo nice sir! .
18. March, 20:27
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you Guys!!

Hello Steve:

Measure 21, june 1942, this is pre-FS

Navy Blue System

Vertical Surfaces:

Navy Blue 5-N All Vertical surfaces without exception.

Horizontal Surfaces:

Horizontal surfaces, Deck Blue, 20-B.

Wood Decks.

Wood decks except on submarines and carriers shall be darkened to the color Deck Blue. Deck Blue paint shall be used in lieu of stain for this purpose.

Canvas Covers.

Canvas covers visible from the outside vessel are to be dyed a color corresponding to Deck Blue.

Notes:

The camouflage painting need not be exact or carried into corners. Small gear, wires, rigging, and areas permanently in shadow, as under boats, etc., need not be painted with the camouflage colors. There is no objection to exact or careful painting which may be desired for the sake of good appearance at close range.

All bright or shiny objects, no matter how insignificant, shall be painted, covered, or removed.

Glass windows shall be covered or removed, especially during the day in sunny weather, and at night when anticipating searchlight discovery. Insofar as conditions permit, similar precautions shall be taken on airport lenses.

( look at google for much more, this: www.shipcamouflage.com)

:)
19. March, 17:57
stevez Thanks, Thomas, which paints did you use to match the Navy color you mentioned above.
19. March, 23:49
Thomas Hopfensperger I mixed it myself after color chips in the web with Revell/Humbrol starting from US Insignia Blue and GB Dark Sea Grey

It is long ago, but then i needed only 2 weeks for the build (i wrote it down on the instructions i have left) 79 not 78, 78 i built the PF, must have been easy therefore!! :)

Thomas Hopfensperger Hello mates,
this is my most timeconsuming model started 1980, stopped because the vacu was much too wrong. Then i stopped modelling for many years. After i started again i made the fuselage in sections. The glass is also made from scratch in 7 pieces plus black frame. It took 14 years to finish it in 1994. A picture was in ModellFan then. It is not the Trumpy model, it is easy to discern. "F-107" is cutted airbrush-foil and laquered. It took more than 400 hrs. Stencilling is Verlinden and Microscale as are the scratch decals. Only the wings are quite changed from Airmodel Vacu. Aerophile was my main reference...
22. October 2019, 16:21
Dave Flitton It looks great!
22. October 2019, 16:37
Thomas Hopfensperger Thank you! There are now pictures from 1991 to 1995 too. Some parts of F-100 Kit were also used

Thomas Hopfensperger Hello mates,
here a model of mine which didnt make it. This pic is from around 1978/1979. The model 1:72 itself was built as soon as the kit was available in Germany. 1975?
Some remains do exist!

Thomas Hopfensperger Hello mates,
this is my Vigilante from USS America built in November 1979. I like the asian touch. I removed some tiny yellow life forms on edges with alcohol (nice death) and polished the canopy. There is a bit too much blue in the Gull Gray (this model didnt get yellowish since 1979, wouldnt hurt!).
Vigi is one of the hottest jets to me. Looks so fast and much too modern for 1958. Mother of XF-108 Rapier. More pix are coming....
14. October 2019, 18:07
Maciej Bellos 1979!!! She holds up pretty well. And yes she looked so fast back then and I think she still does today. Well done!
14. October 2019, 18:27
Hanno Kleinecke Wow, looking real good Thomas! You're right about the look, back in 1958 it must have made a spacecraft - like impression on spectators.

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 2019, 07:07
Stephan Ryll Very nice build
21. July 2019, 10:59
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 2019, 20:03
Glynn Jacobs Exceptional work, Sir!

4. October 2018, 19:38
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, 19:48
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".

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.

Project: FB-18G Marineflieger
Scratchbuilt
10. March 2019, 22:17 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 2019, 12:05
Holger Kranich Now thats a cool story! You just forgot the developement of the new german carrier! ;) ;)
2. April 2019, 07:13
Stephan Ryll Very nice story for 1th of april,,, ;)
2. April 2019, 07:25
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 2019, 08:16
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... :)

@ Bernhard: Thank you for the roses! Didnt want to spoil my Pukin´Dogs sweetie....
2. April 2019, 09:28
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
