Project: Jagdpanter II in scale 1:35
1:35 Jagdpanther II (Amusing Hobby 35A011)

Jens Andrée Nice build!!! I also had to pull out the putty right away for the torsion bars due to poor injection moulding. The rest looks fine though. I've just started my own build of this kit and after test assembly of a couple of track links I've decided to get some aftermarket tracks because I just can't get the included ones to be "workable" after assembly. Also they are borderline masochistic to assemble... You should know what I mean if you've assembled yours? ;)

Am I correct in thinking that the tracks for the Jagdpanther II are transport tracks for a King Tiger/Panther/Panther II ? It's not exactly easy to search for information for a tank that "could have existed" perhaps if the war had continued... But I read it reused the same sprockets and road wheels as the Panther/King Tiger and with those side plates only the transport tracks should fit? or?
What's your opinion? Am I correct or am I wrong?
Many thanks in advance!

Bart Goesaert nice build...
07. March at 11:50:19
Acki Amazing! I´m in.

Przemek Przybulewski Thank you all, almost completed. As white is a modt challenging color I'm not fully satisfied with result. I've added wash, filter, more shading with Tamiya smoke and white again, then buff and flat earth and many more but still something is missing.

Spanjaard Maybe some brown color in the sides? Road dust...
16. October at 09:58:32
Spanjaard Or some oils to give some tonal variation (never tried that, but I have seen some nice ones in SCM).
16. October at 10:00:04
Przemek Przybulewski Good, idea. I will try some more.

Bart Goesaert a friend of mine did this, to replicate an old UN-FOR vehicle from the Belgian army:;album_id=983799461666513

Scott Dutton Looking good, bit more filth on vehicles yet? Love the wood chopping area, nice chips and small pieces add authentic touch.

Project: Kaman K-Max, Rotex AG in scale 1:72
1:72 Kaman K-Max (Attack Squadron 72015)

uncle chop chop I have never seen one like this, i take it the twin rotor heads counter act the tail rotor?
20. July 2015 at 13:26:41
Günther Debiscop Nice one. Which kit?
20. July 2015 at 13:32:38
Pierre-Christian Baudru Very nice one, great job !
20. July 2015 at 13:43:22
Ueli Hebeisen Indeed the two rotors spinning in the opposite direction eliminate the tail rotor. This system is called a Flettner system and was invented by the German Anton Flettner during WWII. This system was then adapted by the Kaman company later.
The kit is from Attack Squadron, a Polish company. It is a resin kit with PE parts: high quality but not so easy to build.
The Kaman K-Max is one of the few - if not the only - helicopter that can lift more than its own weight.
And yes: in operation the rotors are offset 90° but for service they can be disengaged to any position. Having them parallel allows for storing in a narrow display case ;)

Gareth Windsor An interesting build and you've done a nice job too. I was aware of the Flettner system but didn't know that there was a modern helicopter utilising it.

Ekki Very good job on a very interesting subject
20. July 2015 at 18:28:57
Mike Grant Love it :) Do these markings come with the kit?
21. July 2015 at 02:17:02
Ulf Petersen Very interesting model, Ueli. Great build!
21. July 2015 at 06:57:24
Ueli Hebeisen @Mike: no, these decals are custom made (Alps printer). I had the chance to visit Rotex AG and take photos of the HB-ZGK and Rotex gave me the permission to use their logo. There are two K-Max operated by Rotex, the HB-ZGK has the warnings at the rotorhead in englisch whereas the HB-ZIH has them in German.

Dutch Very nicely done! I have always been an admirer of Kaman's inter-meshing rotor helicopters. You have captured the K-Max very well. Terrific work and photos.
16. October at 20:03:55
Ueli Hebeisen Attack Squadron the polish company had done a reissue of this kit, this time the added decals for 4 civil versions. Among them is the K-Max that I have built.
And more news from ROTEX the Swiss K-Max operator: they are adding a third K-Max HB-ZTW to their helicopter fleet.
