  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.

  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.

  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.

  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 !

    Laurent.
