Markus, I build that rack many moons ago (must be 20 years old by now). I'm thinking of building a new and bigger one in the near future.
Dirk, I don't think you will see it at any contest. How do you transport such a beast??

You asked me
How do you transport such a beast??
Easily answer: You sit down onto the wingcenter start the engines, take in the target next highway and drive to the expo!!! So easy it is.....

Just picked up, brand new, at an absolute bargain price....O.M.G. - the size of the box is bad enough! ('That'll learn me!')
11. June 2018 at 12:26:18 Share
Congrats, the sheer size of the box still makes me refrain from buying one

If its a bargain price, can you really say "No"? The bigger the box, the bigger the plastic goodnes!
11. June 2018 at 18:46:59
Hi Gordon. "I'm just a guy who can't say no!" (to a bargain, anyway). Thanks for the support - 'plastic goodness' rules!

Glenn - You expect me to have room to build it as well?!!! (I am grinning from ear to ear as I write this!
) We are too similar my friend (modeller vs collector), but it is therapy all the same as you say (even if it is just a placebo effect!). Looks like a nice aftermarket decal sheet (no, this release of the kit doesn't have RAF markings), but do I really need to add more decals to my stash as well? Cheers!

Decals are all one The A-400. A lot of work. I needed the hole day but the quality is great !!!
So far, Stefan
7. October 2012 at 18:51:14
Hi Stefan - ready next week?? Are you a quick-builder?? :-D
Looks now very good - but it seems to be really a big bird. Think you need a lot of color...
7. October 2012 at 18:57:07
Stefan, in your opinion: is the metal landing gear "really" the better way to go? I am deeply in doubt about SAC because of the very soft metal they use...
22. May 2015 at 14:28:08
sorry for my late answer. Hhm...I would say no, it it not necessary. If you change the plastic pen for the wheels to a metal pen, then it would be good enough.
Thank you for your comment.
17. July 2015 at 13:25:41
Stefan, your build looks great. Thanks for all the detail with the build. Looks like there are few fit issues I need to watch out for when I start mine.
19. July 2015 at 10:42:56
no problem. I hope that could help you with my photos.

I will show you today a litte Update. Last week-end I have worked on the cockpit. I varnished the panels in Anthrazit, the floor in light grey. The last thing I has to do are the seats but I will show this in the next update.
See you, Stefan

Yeah it is a big kit not the most complicated but a joy to build never really thought about photos maybe next time

Thx for the 3 pictures and the explanation Eric!

Eric, that wasn't intended as a criticsm in any way. I am just puzzled that it seems to provide a model a 'more realistic' appearance despite the observation that it is rarely found in reality. As I said, I use the technique myself!
I fully share your view that scale effect is key and maybe looking at very close-up photos shot from a few cm distance doesn't do justice to a paintjob that is supposed to produce scale effect when viewing from a distance of say half a meter away.
Again, no offense intended and thanks for sharing the technique.
5. February 2012 at 12:52:52
No problem Burkhard. I wasn't offended but, was surprised as I didn't expect this kind of comment. But as stated, I welcome every comment. Only the answer can vary in tone and content.
For good measure I put in some more foto's to emphasize the size of this model.
5. February 2012 at 13:00:02
My comment was misplaced anyway, as you were talking about how to create the illusion of interior detail with pre/post-shading while I had, for whatever reason, accentuated exterior panel lines in mind. Guess I should have had one more cup of coffee in the morning before posting away. Thanks mate and sorry for the confusion.
5. February 2012 at 15:21:22
please have my sincere thanks for explaining "your" way to me and friends here at ScaleMates! I really appreciate you doing so!
5. February 2012 at 16:27:02
My pleasure Thomas.
Don't worry about it Burkhard, we both got carried away I guess.
On to more pleasant things, like building a A400M
If only I got some more time to put into this project
6. February 2012 at 18:38:21
Hello Eric, is indeed a nice technique and not only on the inside of airplanes. I've also used it on car interiors, more precisely on seats. I never thought about taking images, but yours eplain/demonstrate it very well. Next time around when I do another set of seats, I'll try and remember to do them.
Thanks for the time and sharing!

I know armour modellers use the technique called colour modulation on the exterior of armoured vehicles to depict the differential in lighting and wear and weathering on the differently angled surfaces. You can see examples on the MIG forum. Has anyone done something like this on aircraft models?
17. February 2012 at 17:28:02
Add comment » Eric Juvyns
Hey MT. I've read about this technique in the new FAQ2 book and asked myself the same question. In my opinion it is only usable on angular surfaces like tanks and armored vehicles and not so much on curved surfaces found on planes. So I will stick to the things I know and do it the old fashioned way.

Inderdaad, kon het niet laten
Het is echt wel een indrukkendwekkend model.
De Mustang ben ik aan bezig maar is momenteel dus on hold. Vermoedelijk zal ik een beetje gaan schipperen tussen de twee modellen.
