  1. Hi there,


    Working a combo ; the latest bronco typeXXIII and the Trump. SSyms transportation wagon (built and primed 4or5 years ago or so). I am more working on the accessories more than on anything else. For the sub, hull was completed and cut in 3 sections : bow, center and stern.

    Decided to start the stern section and i will focus on a rust paint-work.


    The wagon will be in an almost "clean" 2 colors livery. Jigs n'stuff in one nice industrial yellow.


    Display is part of a dry-dock made out of styrene sheets/beams and salt, on a wooden base.




    Sneak peek...


    More soon.


    Thanks for checking in !


    Best, laurent :)

  2. Hi. Had of bit of bits n'pieces.


    I am wondering : On the hydraulic cylinder > 1 or 2 electro valves ? I mean one for the incoming pressure and one for the out-coming pressure ?


    If you have any info feel free. Thanks  :)



    Started a week ago and made the pics today.

    Piping for all the Hydro. cylinders, and a new pressurized air bottle. Ready for the booth.



















    Next pics will be on blue background... ;)

  3. Hi,

    Started the very well known Nurflügel German subject.

    AM : HGW's seat-belts.

    Sources : A.L. Bentley drawings (scale 1:16) the best source ever for those who know how to read a plan.


    THE projekt :

    Pushing the detailing as far as possible. 


    Livery :

    No clue. Will see later. Wood and metal..........maybe. 


    Enough said.





    The box...




    Following the notice, first step is the Jumo 004  twin build. I wanted the pipe systems to be subassemblies for a better painting. I glued/blank-mounted them on the compression section. the 2 sets are glued on a spec. jig, preventing the thin pipes from braking and further on for the painting process.



    More very soon.


    Thanks for checking in.


    Best, laurent.

  4. Weathered to perfection! Although if I was doing my preflight checks I'd be nervous about those tyres


    I've never seen zinc chromate gear legs before - which aircraft/variant are you building?


    Hi Thomas, thanks a lot ! for the tyres i surely would double-check too. :D But i have to stick to my storyboard...and it's a worn story-board.

    Yes they are majorly silver, but here i went for a "what-if" or "artistic licensed" or "have fun" project. (again)


    Cheers !
