  1. Hi I've just received the prizes for 'Best Aircraft' from Richard Andrew at Aviattic. I decided on some of their figures for the future projects I'm working on. But most of all, I absolutely needed their 'German Fuel Cart' This photo shows a cart very similar to the one Aviattic makes, still in use at the Air Marine Station in Copenhagen around 1930.
  2. Thanks Cees, this project started out as little more than a test, to see if it is possible to bring some life into the huge surfaces of the Tamiya Lancaster. Although not perfect, I'm quite happy with the result, it does open up some new possibilities with old kits and scratchbuilds...
  3. The next issue of AIR Modeller (Meng) october/november 2017 will have an article on the /4th Squadron diorama build... I'm very proud that this has been made possible...
  4. Hi Rob. I've used a type of heavy Aluminium foil for embossing, available in art/hobby supply stores. The advantage of this thick foil, is that it is possible to 'stretch' it somewhat during the fitting process. It does also not wrinkle. The foil pieces are cut to fit the some of joint lines. They are sanded on the backside and the rivetting is done from the inside out with a 'Rosie the rivetter' tool to make it look authentic. The foil is glued in place with contact glue. I know it sounds like a daunting task, but it isn't really that hard to work with. I'm not sure if it would work if used for a all metal finish, that remains to be tried... ;-) Regards: Kent
  5. Finally got around to the painting job on this one... I think the work with the aluminium sheet cladding payed off, it's no longer the smooth plastic but a more irregular metallic surface...

    Love that paint job, a lot! Regards: Kent
  8. Hi Fran, I'm deeply honored by being awarded these prices, thank you so much! Best Aircraft (judge Daniel Zamarbide) Best 3rd vehicle/best concept:(Judge José Brito) Kind regards: Kent Karlsen
  9. And some close-up photo's of the build... The three planes are the ones of Squadron Commander Keith 'Grid' Caldwell NZ, (D6864), James Ira 'Taffy' Jones C1117 'T' GB and of Frederick Stanley 'Freddie' Gordon NZ, D3438 'Z' - The last one without the wings, is done as C6459 'C'. It could have been the one flown by Sydney 'Timbertoes' Carlin, but I have not been able to confirm this. Thats it, I hope you like it... Regards: Kent Karlsen
