Ready for Primer ...
Looking good Roland 🙂
What an idea! 👍
That's gonna be great! ?
Blue Angels Tomcat sounds nice 👍
Count me in.
Watching. F-14/Blue Angels mash-up what's not to like? 🙂 👍
Fantastic idea Roland!
Welcome all! Nice to have you abord!
Let's get the project done now! White primer applied.
Ooo watching 🙂
Welcome Augie! I hope it works the way I imagine it. I'm not sure if the skyhawk "back lines" fit. We will see 🙂

Thank you Clifford, much appreciated!

Thanks for the recommendations 👊 Since the flaps/slats can be easily plugged in, I paint everything individually.
Ready for the fun part ...
Man, how I envy the speed some of you build your kits... Lovely job there Roland! waiting for the fun part too!
Yep, this is where the fun begins. 😎
Looking very nice Roland.

Welcome Harry! Unfortunately, they are not an option for me 😉
At the moment I swim on the Sikorsky-wave and of course I'm in! Just checked the external reviews: it seems that it's an excellent kit! I have the SH-60 as Italerie kit in 1:48 (my scale)? but I suppose in comparison with the new KH kit I will throw it in the garbage bin…
P.S. Please the sea blue version🙂
Welcome Bernhard! Nice to have you abord! From what I've seen so far, it seems to be a pretty good kit. The instructions are IMHO a bit in need of improvement lol
Alea iacta est! It will be the blue one 😄
Excellent choice, sir 😄
blue and glossy it is, looking forward to it!
But watch out, they forgot the C in HSC-3 ... just as they did in the HSC-6 one I am building 🙁 and not the only stupid decal mistake sadly...

Nice subject, well done, like this hypothetical stuff 😎
Thank you Torsten 🙂
That's awesome 👍
Vielen Dank Juergen!
Many Thanks James 🙂

This looks nice, almost translucent. The details of the base are also painted very nicely. 👍
Roland - is that hand painted, airbrushed, or a mix of both?
Nicely done. Love the detail of the purple roses.
Many Thanks Mates!
@John It's hand painted.
Wow - very nice. Figure painting is one of my weak areas as I still have not mastered blending different shades without it coming out clumpy.
Painting figures is great in itself 😁

Nice one! 👍
Great build Roland 👍
I can hear the tunes and the anxious radio-comm!!! 😉 👍
Thank you all! Glad you like it 🙂 Cheers!

Count me in here as well! 😉
Is this happening? I surely hope so, would love to se a 48-scale J-20 actually built here! 😉
Welcome and Sorry mates, I accidentally turned off the notification and overlooked your comments.
The project will definitely be built this year (omg I'm leaning very far out here right now).
Start is planned for September. Parallel to the MH-60.
Following with interest, of course 😉
This will be a tasty treat 😁

Still watching! 😉
Gosh Roland, this is just MASSIVE! and of course awesome 🙂 I've missed some of these recent albums. Your work is very inspiring! 👍
I have the old Revell 1/32 F-14A with a boat load of aftermarket goodies, But there is no way it will ever come any where close to this one. Outstanding so far.
Slavo, Still in progress 😉 My mojo is getting some momentum again 😄
Neil, Thank you for your kind words and welcome 🙂
Clifford, Thanks a lot. Unfortunately, I don't know the Revell kit. But it's a bit older if I'm not mistaken. The trumpeter is apparently hit and miss lol
I am now priming and concentrating on painting. I hope to be able to present progress by the weekend.
I am sure it will be beautiful. The 1/32 Revell kit is basically a scaled up version of the 1/48 kit, only with recessed panel lines. All my aftermarket stuff is for the Tamiya kit, but I will make it work on the Revell kit. Lol.
Visited my LHS today after a long time. Just wanted to buy putty ... Damn it LOL
Let whoever is blameless throw the first stone... LOL 😄
So true 😄
BTW, do you know if this Weserflug has been re-released recently... or it just waited for you there for a long time, Roland? I am asking since I am interested in purchasing this kit, too.
As far as I know, this is a new release with a new tool.
Weserflug P.1003/1 (Amusing Hobby 48A002, 1:48)
I guess no one here is free of that guilt. 😄
Well, you got some putty, I'd say mission accomplished.
Thanks, Roland. It simply appeared for such a short while in one of Polish internet shops, that I thought it was few years ago...
WhiteGlint, yeah you're right lol It's just so sad that I've prepared myself mentally for the temptation ... Obviously not enough. I will test it again soon because I need new brushes 😉
Robert, maybe your shop was faster. The release was apparently already in 2020. How the time flies ...
I have purchased this Weserflug model in the meantime, Roland... 😄

@Roland, I need to start over again and finish up to date what has been written. I have the first two books on tape, with Sir Stephen reading the story and absolutely love it.
The first scene, where he is dispensing justice in town is seared into my soul. I may not agree with his politics but he can tell a story where you fall into the scene with him.
I haven't been right since.?
Oh yeah, the Dark Tower series is great.
I devoured all the books a few years ago, hmm... could be well over ten years now... good times.
And taking another look at the Shinden I realize that there was no reason to fear the raised panel lines as I did with my bird.
You did not use any panel line wash if I am not mistaken.
Whatever crimes Japan may have committed....
....were more than paid for by the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
It is time for all of us to move on.

Suddenly turned from work-in-progress-on-the-bench to finished-on-a-stick! 👍
Great looking design oddity, making a much better pose in-flight as it would be on it´s own legs! Parmigiano reggiano base with rising sunburst does the rest, a flamboyant swoosh through the finish line!
„ Parmigiano reggiano base" LOL
Thanks a lot Slavo for your kind words!

Thanks a bunch Daniel, Murad, Christoph and Rui! Cheers!
Greg, but like everything in life, I am now getting the negative side of its success. He's developing into a rock star diva, drinks all day, pestering the other Schwalben and shouting vulgarly at me from his shelf ... He's like "Ted" without a fur.
Fabulous photos of a masterful build.👍
Thanks Gary! Much appreciated!
Stunning build sir, very well done.
Thanks a lot Clifford! I really appreciate your words!
March 13, 2021
I agree with all above.
Excellent looking bottom - particularly the 2 "Weisswürste" under the wings!😉 Good you are doing an in-flight so all that tasty beauty will remain actually reasonably visible! 👍
Q: Would it be a valid last-resort tactics to shake a bandit by shooting the 4 Mk108´s and letting him fly into the cloud of 30mm cartridges? 😄
"Weisswürste" ROTFL 😄
Thank you Nathan, Jim, Clifford and Slavo! Much appreciated!
WeisswürSCHte, After all, I'm a Bavarian😉 😄
