  1. Hello, the interior is painted... brown and black with a dark brown washing. The brakes are made of resin- and etched parts from the Hobby Design transkit and painted in Zero Paints carbon/ceramic grey. The brake saddles are painted in True Metals gold color and polished. The 20" Forgiato wheels from Hobby Design are painted in black and will be installed later. The body is painted in white, then the black areas. After a layer of clear coat the golden decals were added and fixed with two more layers clear coat (Mr Super Clear from the spray can). The windows with the black painted frames were installed, also the head lights and the rear lights. Next I will add the rear bumper and install everything on the chassis Cheers Micha
  2. Hello. The next Lambo is on the way ... once again I will do the wonderful Huracán, but this time with the Liberty Walks wide body kit from Hobby design. The resin kit consists of photo etched parts, resin pars for the fenders and all other spoilers, decals and a set of nice wheels. I have started with the body and the fender flarings, as well as the rear wing... Cheers Micha
  3. Hello. all the kits parts of the underside of the hull are mounted and the holes for all the LED lamps drilled inside the hull. I have installed the wiring and the LED for testing .... lot of wires (without the LEDs for the engine). Next I will make the base and the stand which will include the wires then. ... and lights on for testing ... Some nice small figures are included with the kit, it is even possible to recognize the persons.... I will install Han Solo the captain, Chewbacca and on the seats behind C3P0 and Luke Skywalker. Cheers Micha
  4. Hello, Once upon a time in a galaxy far far away . . . everybody knows this opera of the biggest space opera all the time: STAR WARS. I always thought about the wonderful spaceship of Han Solo which is the most beautiful space ship ever in my eyes... now I want to build the Falcon finally... in 1/72 scale from Revell's Master Series. The kit is equal to the Fine Molds kit with more then 900 parts. Additionally I will use the etched parts from Paragrafix, some 3D-printed parts for the guns, the cockpit and the antenna. The engine will receive some clear resin parts, the exhausts some resin updates as well. And ... the most important thing for the Falcon.... I will illuminate it. It is the first time I will do this ... So let's start... I began with the planning of the lights. Finally I have decided to go like this: Red = red LEDs (8), yellow = warm white LEDs (14), blue = cold white LEDs (5), light blue = LED strap for the engine (1), plus one blue LED and some fibre optics for the cockpit. Here we go with the LEDs marked on the hull (downside): Next I will add some details on the outside and inside of the bottom side of the ship, then I will drill the holes and make the wiring ... I hope you like the new project ... Cheers Micha
  5. Hello, the finished cockpit is installed in the two halfes of the hull... the hull glued together and the seam sanded smooth. The tail wheel area is also painted in interior green, the wheel itself follws later after the painting of the hull. The elevator unit is installed in lowered position and glued in place too. Next follow the two engines ... Cheers Micha
  6. Hello, this is my new project: Tamiya's wonderful kit of the De Havilland Mosquito Fb. MK VI in big scale 1/32. The kit consists of more then 690 plastic parts, 2 frets of photo etched parts, two sheets with decals, screws, magnetos, optional clear engine covers, big mounting instruction and info booklets.... a huge kit with so many wonderful small details... and small and smaller parts Additionally I will use the photo etched parts from Eduard for the exterieur, and some colored ones for the interior. Also the fabric seat belts and masks for the canopy, some brass barrels for the guns and the Eduard resin kits of the Brassin series for the two gun mounts as I want to show these partly in open position. Some additional decals for the stencils and some new markings with wonderful nose art are plannes as well .... I hope that this is an interesting new project for you! Cheers Michael
  7. Hello, Pfalz D.IIIa is finished. It is the wonderful 1/32 kit from Wingnut Wings, straight out of the box. The only replacement parts are Masters Gun barrels and mantlets, some turnbuckles from Gaspatch models and the rope is from EZ Line (fine). The decals are from the "Flying Circus" set from Wingnut Wings (separately available). The rest is all out of the box. I hope that you like it! Cheers Micha
  8. Hello, here she is - the "Dottie Mae" called Republic P-47D Thunderbolt in 1/32 scale by Eduard. The kit is consisting of the plastic parts of the Hasegawa kit, plus Eduard Resin parts for the wheels, photo etched parts, masks and decals for three versions of the kit incl. a lot of stencils. The cockpit was made with the resin parts from Quickboost, the gun barrels are from Master Models. Painted with Tamiya's Aluminium, then sprayed each panel in variations of Vallejo's Metal Color series and clear coat. The interior is painted with colors from Lifecolor. Hope that you like the Dottie. Cheers. Micha
  9. One more amazing kit from Wingnut Wings - this time the Pfalz D.IIIa will be the next World War I airplane on my desk. I have started with the interior as always. All later wooden parts were painted in a light beige first with the airbrush, then oil colors followed next to make the final wooden effect. On the inside of the hull the skewed wooden slats werde each separately painted with a cotton bud then ... [ Now I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS! Cheers Micha
  10. Hello, I have added some more parts and details on the lower part of the hull... the area around the engine is nearly finished ... For the illimination of the engine I have used the kits part (a box light part which is mounted behind the grille). I have removed the back of the boxand painted the rest in black. Then I have glued the clear resin parts at the backside of the frame (rest of the "box"). The box I have extended on the backside with plastic sheed about 1cm, parallel to the backside of the box. Then I have glued the blue LED-stripe on a plastic stripe in the high of the box. painted this and the extension in silver. The stripe with the LEDs Ihave glued on the backside of the box as back panel. I have used Tape to fix the back wall better and to close all remaining gaps. Then I have glued Aluminium foil with super glue all around the new "lightbox", the wires leaving the box on the side and will go through the hull later. That's how it looks like ... I think that this is ok ... I like it Cheers Micha
  11. Hello, the seat belts from Eduard/HGW are added. These are very funny to built. Small and smaller parts .... but the result is worth doing it, compared to etched parts. I have added a brown wash after it. Then I have put together all components of the interior .... Next follows the armament in front of the cockpit ... Cheers Micha
  12. Hello, after the mounting of the upper wing I have added the pipework between engine and wing, then started the rigging. The turnbuckles are from Gaspatch Models and glued in drilled holes. Once dry I have glued EZ-Line through the turnbuckles, stretched it and glued it in place. Some adjustment of the turnbuckles will follow. Next I will add the landing gear and the propeller ... Cheers Micha
  13. Hello, I want to show you another project which I am working on at the moment: The P-47D "Dottie Mae", the limited kit from Eduard. It is the old Hasegawa kit, but including some nice photo etched parts, resin parts, masks and nice decals. And - a great poster of the wonderful drawing on the carton box.... Additionally I am using the resin-cockpit from Aires and the turned brass barrels from Master. Firstly I have cleaned the resin parts for the cockpit and glued the small parts in place, added some etched parts. Then a black primer and a layer of Aluminium were sprayed over it, followed with some water and a bit of salt. The main color is interior green sprayed on the dry salt. After the paint was dry, the salt removed, then I have painted the small details and added some further colored etched parts. The display received some wiring on the back side, but is not yet painted. A brown washing and a silver dry brushing followed.... actually it looks like this ... The engine parts were glued together, the wiring added (a big etched part).... now ready for painting ... Cheers Micha
  14. Hello, the Lamborghini Murcielago "Liberty Walk" is finished. The base kit is from Fujimi, the transkit from Eightyone81 and fits perfect. I tried the Vallejo Metal Colors here for the first time, mostly it works well, but there are some areas I am not 100% happy with ... Cheers Micha
  15. Hello, After having finished the modification of the body with the resin fenders, front bumper etc. I have primered the body several times. After the black primer was completely dry I have painted the body with Vallejo's Metal Color Steel in several thin layers. Some days drying time later Mr. Super Clear followed to give it a smooth and shiny surface ... I love this color ... The transkit from Eightyone81 incldes also the decals of the car. These were cut out and put on the body. One more layer of Mr. Super Clear finished the painting of the body then. Finally I have polished and waxed it .... Next I have installed the engine hood and the one-piece window. The frame was painted first in black from the inside. One installed the body was glued on the chassis, then the rear lights (painted in clear red), and the mesh part (painted in black) were added. Now I am thinking about the wheels... the brake discs were painted in carbon color already, but which wheels do I use? Maybe I will use the ones on the picture below which are only put under the car.... But which color? Red? I think red looks good somehow ... but I also think about matt black wheels.... what do you think? Black or Red? Cheers Micha
  16. Hello, I have added some first detail parts on the underside of the Falcon. Some of these inserts were assembled separately, some piping added then inserted from the inside, glued and screwed (!). Here you could see the clear/blue resin parts for the engine which will replace the plastic parts of the kit. Next step will be the "lightbox" for the engine illumination ... Cheers Micha
  17. Hello, I have sprayed a first layer of white on the body. One more to follow, then the roof and the rear wing will get black painting. The interior is growing parallel ... Cheers Micha
  18. Hello, the decals of the airplane of Robert Berthold are done, a layer with clear coat fixed the decals and secure it for the weathering. A layer of black/brown oil color on everything followed, wiped away with a cloath after a few minutes. The rips of the wings were lightened with white pastells, then a layer of matt clear coat followed on everything ... Cheers Micha
  19. Hello, the Dottie received its final painting - the oive color on the upper side. A black washing followed, wiped away afterwards from front to back... The landing gear is test fitted, not finished and not finished in painting. Weathering missing. Some more weathering of the exhaust, etc follows next ... Cheers Micha
  20. Hello, The separately mounted assemblys were primered in black next. After that a glazing layer of Lifecolor's British Interior Green was sprayed on everything, keeping the black shining through as a kind of shadow. The green received some highlights and shadows with base color mixed with dark brown, and base color mixed with beige. After that all the small details were painted with a fine brush in its different colors... The displays were all added next. These were wonderful colored etched parts from Eduard, also the switches, levers, etc. Also some first decals were added now. A layer of matt clear coat on everyhing followed nedt to give the etched parts the same look as the painted ones. The matt surface received some shiny clear coat sprayed in a cloudy way on everything to give it a light shiny optic. Dark brown oil color washing over everything followed next and gave the parts a used optic. Black washing around the details accented these a bit more. All the displays received some dots of Micro Crystal Klear next to simulate the glass of the displays. Next follow the seats and the seat belts made of HGW's fabric and etched parts.... lot of small parts... The first of the two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines was built parallel. It is highly detailed and constsis of a lot of small and smalles, super detailed plastic parts. I love this engine! Tamiya also provides some etched parts for it, two further etched parts from Eduard immitate the wiring. More additional parts is not necessary.... Cheers Micha
  21. Hello, my finished G6 "Rhino" in 1/35 scale by Takom. It is a huge kit and a huge car... I hope that you like it! Cheers, Micha
  22. Hello. I have painted the outside of the Pfalz now. After a grey primer I have sprayed the front area in red, which I have mixed from several red tones from Lifecolor. Once dry I have masked it and sprayed Tamiya blue on the rest. The underside of the fuselage and the wings is neutral grey with a few drops of Aluminium. Next follow the decals, detail painting, the rips of the wings, oil color matt clear coat .... Cheers Micha
  23. Hello, I have started to paint the Dottie. First I have primered the hull with a light grey, followed by the yellow (Lifecolor dark Yellow), and the red (Lifecolor red). Once dry I have masked these areas and sprayed a first layer of Tamiya alluminium on the complete plane. Sanded under water to get a smooth surface and I had the perfect base for the next colors: Vallejo's Metal Colors. I have used different colors (steel, aluminium, white aluminium, dark aluminium, burnt iron, jet exhaust) in different variants and mixes to color the different panels. Two layers of gloss varnish as base for the decals followed ... The decals are great. Really great. Very thin (attention!) and fit perfect without any silvering! I started with the Dottie Mae markings, followed by nearlly 100 stencils all around the plane... minus: The plan for the positions of the stencils is not included with the kit, in the instructions there is only a hint for the website of Eduard... there you could find the plan for the stencils. Only there. Next gloss varnish once again to save the decals and the painting. Then painting of the olive color on the top of the fuselage and the black at the rear. Then accentuating the panel lines, some washing and painting of the details (lights, exhaust, ....) Cheers Micha
  24. Hello, I have started with the cockpit of the Mosquito. Most of the kit parts are glued together. I have built several separate subassemblys for easier painting. Most of the switches, displays, etc. I have removed already so that I could add the Eduard colored etched parts after the painting. Next I will add some more wiring at the displays, at the bottom and at the walls. Cheers Micha
  25. Hi Mike, thank you very much .... it was a lot of time ..... Several years with several pauses Cheers Michael
