  1. Long time since my last post. Have been busy working on HPH's giant PBY-5A Catalina... PBY-5A Bureau number 7277/20 of VP-93/VP-126, was assigned to the Greenland Fleet Air Detachment at Bluie West One (Narsarsuaq) during WW2. The left side has been opened up, to make it possible to see all the beautiful interior details HPH has put into this great bird. A couple of interior shots... A final touch, interior lighting... Hope you like it, thanks for looking: Cheers Kent
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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
  6. 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...
