:D
Welcome Konrad and Thanks a bunch!
Only 123 times? There is still room for improvement ;)
Haven't seen you here in a while. I hope you are doing well!

The jets looks great , but I can´t see Maverick, Goose and Viper... ;)

Konrad Limmer
Yep Roland everything is fine so far. Hopefully you too?
My mojo left me for a while, so I've started a view projects but thats all so far ;)!

I've tried a view other things like RC Cars, Star Wars Legion and so on...

Anyhow I will come back soon with a new project on the winter holidays. Hopefully ;)
1. December, 07:31
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you Mates! Much appreciated :)

@Guy At some point I'll probably put them on a (one) base/dio. Let's see...

@Patrick :D

@Harry, It's all a question of imagination ;)

@Konrad That sounds good. Mojo comes and goes... I'm looking forward to your X-mas build ;)
RC Cars :S I once had a "Grasshopper" and a "Boomerang" from Tamiya (a long time ago). But I don't think that's what you mean :D
1. December, 12:21
Konrad Limmer
Yep Roland I also had a Grasshopper as a kid. And now my kids have also one ;)!.
It makes a lot of fun for the Kids ;)!
So maybe I will show those Cars in a separat album.

Thank you all for your positive comments! That's a big motivation. Much appreciated!
Especially with such a large project (for me at least) the mojo varies from time to time. Even if I build models: patience is not exactly my strength :D

I'm working on the cannon right now. Now do this in front of the cockpit, because you can handle it better ...
I decided to dismantle the bracket for installing the cannon in two parts. Otherwise it is almost impossible to paint the cannon and the frame clean and above all: To get the cannon in: D

Looking good Roland. I have that one in the stash, so will watch with interest.
17. November, 03:12
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you Clifford!
I have absolutely no idea about ships. This is just a small mini project for in between. But what I notice is that the upper gray is probably too light. Unfortunately there are only black and white photos, but the upper part seems to be much darker. Anyway, so far a nice little kit with no problems.

I've been considering building a sub myself for something a little different. Perhaps in the new year.

9. September, 16:58
Roland Gunslinger
Yes, it's really nice little kit. Sometimes you just want to build something small quickly.
But I still find it very strange that someone should actually have sat there earlier. I imagine myself to be pretty uncomfortable.
16. September, 16:28
Gary Dahlström
I recently watched a video on this and one of the theories was that it was a suicide weapon possibly developed for Japanese, not German, use. Since it only had 5mm of 'armor' the thinking is that it would stop small arms but when detonated would fragment into tiny bits. At any rate, I don't think anyone who crawled into one of these was expected to get back out. We may never know...
I also don't see any facility for venting the exhaust from the single-cylinder engine (wtf?). Did you happen to notice something like a tailpipe associated with that castor wheel in back?
Great build! That rusty patina is damn near perfect, and the markings are really sharp.
16. September, 18:57
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you Gary! Much appreciated!
I also read something similar. I think the "tank" was more of a concept than actually in use. There is no exhaust on the kit. To be honest, I also can't imagine that it actually moved. But as you wrote: we will probably never know.

I have another Kugelpanzer kit. This one has an exhaust and weapons...

I ordered one of these, wish it would arrive ... currently building the bt-102 ball tank. The kit isn't great, I've put it on hold because I got frustrated with things not fitting together. One of these days I'll get back to it, but I might not finish the interior, not great engineering. Your Kugelpanzer looks fantastic, the weathering is great.
19. September, 20:59
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you Ben! Much appreciated!
Yes, I also find it very annoying when a kit does not fit. This one fits very well, but it's only a few pieces. I can't say anything about the MINIART yet. I keep my fingers crossed that your kit will arrive soon!

Turned on the respective track while watching the pics! ;)

While you did a most respectable job indeed on the model itself - I mean it, just a perfectly suitable weathering for the purpose, the wear suggesting the Spit was "on tour" for some time & had some fun in the air, the pose & display kicks this one league up than a "normal" presentation... Really love the action pose & the base too - great model and a complete "attention catcher" anywhere this will actually land!

Maybe time for a fictional Metallica/Slayer Tomcat next? :D

Please don't get it wrong: I don't want to badmouth the kit, but you should consider that this is a relatively old Revell rebox with a dubious accuracy of fit. In my opinion you won't be happy with this kit. I would recommend buying a better kit and extra decals. Just my2cents ...

scalemates
it is a nice box art though! :)
3. September, 11:57
Jos Jansen
Thank you Roland, I was indeed a bit too premature to put this in my wish list, after doing some research I agree with you completely.
3. September, 11:57
Roland Gunslinger
I already had the kit in my shopping cart :D
IMHO the new Revell kits are very good. The artwork and the instructions in particular are very appealing. And the new WW2 32nd kits are great.
I think it's a shame that Revell used these old molds here.
3. September, 12:19
3. September, 13:13
Treehugger
I bought the Revell Airbus 350 in 1:144 and to my annoyance, even though this was a new kit the clear part for the canopy didn't fit well with the plastic. Trusting brand names is a big no no for me, and so I place my trust in good reviews where you can get a good idea if there are sink marks (lol) and crap.
3. September, 13:20
Roland Gunslinger
@Treehugger
Of course, you shouldn't blindly trust a brand. I actually mean that Revell have shown with some new molds (32nd Spitfire, Focke Wulf, ME262) that they definitely have the potential to bring very good kits to the market and, of all things, they use these old molds for such a popular topic.
3. September, 13:32
Jos Jansen
IMHO the Rafale M 1/48 is one of the best molded kit from Revell ever, you sometimes have to do some research to find the right good Revell kit or listen to the mates her on SCM ;) Of course it is a Hasegawa rebox but their Phantom FGR Mk.2 1/48 is also a very good sharp molded kit, and cheaper then the original Hasegawa ones!
3. September, 16:59
Cortex
1978 release, that's pretty old : )
I think -with all the great new releases we now have- the strategy for modeller today is to get the best kit they can find for their money. Because you might get an old cheap kit, but you want get the satisfaction you seek plus you'll spend money on paints and tools for a bad kit.
