  1. Corrrect. It will be an army plane, not one of the specials.
  2. Done. Happy to have this one off the table. It is a gorgeous plane and would deserve a better quality kit. Potez 25 A2, RF 22 Nr.2054 Rochefort training unit French Naval Aviation 1937 1:72 Azur Frrom
  3. Phew. Done. Gotta say, I learned a LOT. The material is very specific to work with and will still require a lot of practice before I master it.
  4. Upper wing attached without too many complications. But then it started. Are these Uschi rigging lines something for masochists? It took me half an hour to attach the first small line. And I still don´t trust it will stay in its place. Am using quick dry glue, gel. Any tips for working with this products? I saw some videos where the guys basically say how easy it is, but either I am a klutz or ....
  5. This slowly turns out to be one neat looking plane. The outcome depends on the next step. Wish me luck guys, I am about to try rigging with ''Uschi Van Der Rosten''. I have zero experience and no idea how it is gonna work out.
  6. Six.... twenty.... Until this very moment I did not think I need help... professional help....
  7. This reminds me of Louie Anderson describing his operation in his Big Baby Boomer stand up. Can't find this particular part right now. But the whole thing is worth watching
  8. Dark blue grey my ass- even the colour scheme in this kit is wrong. This does not look like a French Navy paint at all. I will try and use something else- have to overspray the whole goddamn thing.
  9. Oh man, sorry to hear that, von. Wish You all the best and a quick recovery 👍
  10. A bit of progress after 4 days of filling-sanding and trying to fit the parts together.
  11. Had a bit of break from model building. Gathering strength to continue with this upcoming filling and sanding festival.
  12. Alright, time to move on- this kit looked great in the box, however I am unpleasantly surprised at how inaccurate the mould halves of the manufacturer are aligned. Basically all parts required massive cleaning up of the offset. The kit was cca. 30 EUR and will still need a lot of additional adjustments along the way.
  13. Done.... but with mixed feelings... many things went southwards but the cherry on the cake is the glue fumes frosting inside. Tried to remove the canopy. Made it even worse.... fu*k it... Yokosuka MXY7 OHKA model 22 1:72 Brengun
  14. And now... for something completely different...
  15. Done. Not as clean as I would like to, but anyway... Yokosuka MXY7- model 43 K1 KAI Japan 1945 1:72 Brengun
  16. Hmm, not quite happy with the green, but oh well, what the heck...
  17. Very nice and soooo clean! Meanwhile, I continue reducing my boxes stash.
  18. Hi, https://www.migjimenez.com/en/accessories/523-tamiyamr-color-ammo-storage-system.html
  19. It is original detail. I was amazed at the fine details. Will be definitely getting a few more kits from this company in near future.
  20. Done. I can only recommend this kit and the company. Very precise kit, easy to build. I managed to screw up a few things as usually, but this is solely due to my clumsiness. I wanted to build the World Speed Record version, but noticed too late (after painting) that the world record version does not have the radiator below the cockpit. So instead I found a picture of some unspecified version that sort of matches. Macchi MC 72 M.M. 179 1933 (?) 1:72 SBS model Forgot to add the photo of the original
