Nice. Not seen that particular aircraft before. What service is that?

War sehr interessant in MF zu lesen, was du an der Mühle gemacht hast (hab auch die #02 gebaut). Hut ab.

Thank you Bernhard, you are right, it took a long time! Now i have a lot more time for this crazy hobby (but not divorced). 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.

Very nice. I've always wanted that model kit. 🙂 Still a tad expensive, like most new kits.

Any advice for others that get this kit? 🙂

Thanks Ekki! @Treehugger: in ModellFan 2017/10 there is a big build feature of my tchaika 🙂

@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......

Fantastic work! (I remember the VEB Plasticart model of this type assembled by my father standing on my shelf...)
