  1. Yes there are many Swedish and German words that are similar and there are many Swedish and English words that are similar as well, believe it or not. Great work on bränsletanken by the way. And Rainer, I think your English is better than mine. Derek, you really should learn Swedish I think. Then you can communicate with 9 million people restricted to a very small spot on this planet... /Stoffe
  2. Thanks for the review, I appreciate it very much and it will help me in my future build. /Stoffe
  3. Wow, making your own cross sections is quite impressive. How do you do that? Maybe you can make a set with correct drawings for Viggen and put them out for sale? /Stoffe
  4. That´s nice Derek, don´t slow down now and keep the momentum going. Thanks for the info on the banana shake in that cup, I thought it was some kind of glue first... /Stoffe
  5. Thanks for all the comments guys. Thomas: I would love to make kits of this in some form in the future, but there is a big step left for me in just finishing the master. Female vac moulding sounds interesting but I know nothing of this process. At least I should be able to make some moulds in reinforced epoxy resin to cast a few copies. /Stoffe
  6. Hello Derek Regarding the J21 I am having a dream of making a model out of that one but to be honest it´s a huge task I think. The first step is to actually complete the master and then we´ll see if it´s gonna be a one-off just for me or if I have the courage and time to make a model of it. Carry on with your Lilldrake /Stoffe
  7. That seemed to work so here are some more piccies: This is the structure of one of the booms: These are all the pics I have at Photobucket at the moment, I am sitting at work right now so I don´t have access to my own computer. Short story about the build: Started this in 2009 with the fuse and have been working on and off (mostly off) on it since then. I am planning to make a master of this and my first intention was to cast it in resin but that is quite expensive as i understand? An option would be to cast it in fibreglass reinforced epoxy which I have previous experience in. Well I have to get back to work but if anyone is interested I can tell you more later. /Stoffe
  8. Well this is my first try posting a picture here so here goes:
  9. I am really impressed with your efforts so far Derek. I´m following this so maybe I can get some inspiration to continue work on my J21... /Stoffe
  10. I think it removes any paint... An example; I have a big paint brush (70 mm) that I use to paint details on my house with using paint based on lin seed oil (linoljefärg). It had been lying around for two years with paint on it, completely stiff. I chucked it in "såpa" overnight and the next day the paint was dissolved and I could use the brush again. And it doesn´t have to be "Grumme", it can be any brand. /Stoffe
  11. I Googled the Swedish word "såpa" and came up with the translation "soft soap", hope that makes more sense to the English speaking members here? /Stoffe
  12. Hello Sparzanza and other people from Sweden. I use plain "Grumme såpa", yellow or green coloured from the grocery store. Leave the brushes to soak in this stuff for a while, the longer the better. Then push the bristles repeatedly against the bottom of the container with "såpa" and you will see dried paint coming out. Then rinse it under your tap and repeat this process if necessary. I use this method even on big brushes when painting my house, works excellent! /Stoffe
  13. I´ll be following this one for sure. But Derek, watch out with that drawing from Karlströms book. They are known for not being that accurate... But I guess you´re aware of this. /Stoffe
  14. No worries Tim. BTW I didn´t intend to be a smart*ss correcting you, I just wanted to be informative. "Vördnadsbjudande" is not a word I have ever used anyway, it´s not that common in Swedish vocabulary. And yes, when it comes to making all those decals for the stencilling you will have a crash course in Swedish! /Stoffe
  15. Hi Derek I suspected AndersN had supplied you with info on these aircraft, he´s a great source. If I happen to stumble upon any stuff regarding these planes I´ll get in touch with you ASAP. Keep up the good work, as I said earlier I am very excited about this project. /Stoffe
  16. Well I´m not sure it´s Google translate or your fingers slipping on the keyboard but it should be "vördnadsbjudande" if you´re trying to translate "awesome"... /Stoffe
  17. Oh Derek, this is very exciting indeed. But I have to ask, do you have reliable drawings for these aircraft and most of all do you have the time to make the masters? I really hope I can build large scale versions of these aircraft one day. /Stoffe
  18. I have to say I love that finish too. Sorry about your IKEA-accident, as a Swede I feel a bit guilty of this because we are pumping out cheap crap to people all over the world. And it´s heartbreaking to see modelers being affected by this... /Stoffe
  19. Hello Derek Are you by any chance making (or converting those B-25) wheels for the P-61? If you are, im interested in buying a set for my stashed P-61. Thanks Stoffe
  20. Thanks Anders I think I will pop by Solna tomorrow on sunday and have a look myself at those models (and others). Maybe I´ll see you? /Stoffe
