Time to to start a new project. This kit has been in my stash a while. Waiting for me to gather the courage. I will be building it in it’s current state: under restoration. Ofcourse with a few creative liberties. It has been excellently done before: The above is my aim and i’ll be happy with half the result. This is where i’m at:
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.
Maybe boring, but I also start the 1/32 Ho 229 Most importent for me: it will not a crashed one! Lol Ok let's start: Our 50 sprues of grey: beginning with the engines and my new metal powders from Uschi van der Rosten Building the frame. Must say that this kit is just a joy to build, easy and the fit is perfect! Also the engine: first Vallejo silver metallic and then Metallic P, love the effect of the powder. The tubes delivered with the kit are just great and amazing how fine ZM is able to mould them. So great care must be taken when cutting them out. After gluing the tubes, I weathered the hole stuff with AK Grease and Vallejo pigments: Think that a little wire ad interest. Arno
