  1. Jan, the metal lower surface looks ace! A pleasure to follow this epic build!
  2. +1 on the 3D IP! What a build!
  3. Got my Skymaster kit these days. Good to see some aftermarket decals are on the horizon! Now I am waiting for Roden to reply to my email, asking for replacement fuselage parts. Mine, too, are badly warped. Soft plastic, all sprues in one single bag including the clear parts(!), maybe not the best way to package a kit...
  4. Alex, watching at the box art this exactly was my first thought, too.
  5. The best way to go for everyone doing one of AIMS´s Ju 388 kits! I have their L-1 conversion set, and one of the roadblocks of this are their resin propeller caps. These are cast with a rather thick wall thickness that has to be thinned a lot to enable the hub to get in! Much easier and more detailed to model Henri´s set! The other roadblock, in my opinion, is the bomb bay pan; the recessed panel lines on this one are done shakey. I don´t expect someone to do an improved one, so maybe I will fill the recesses and try to engrave clean ones...
  6. The set without the hub. Very tempting for me to make use of this one!
  7. And here are the pictures he asked me to publish. First, the set with a propeller hub.
  8. Got Henri´s new Ju 388 resin propellers today! Cannot decide which ones to use: with, or without the hub. The details given are again superb! Here is a list of his props in case you might want to place an order, using his email address mentioned above.
  9. Nick, I have to thank YOU for the special pleasure and opportunity to build this amazing kit! I recently had it on show here in Friedrichshafen (home of Dornier) and your work really turned heads! No need to mention that I didn´t stop to mention your shop on Shapeways!
  10. Obiwan, these are the only ones I did in Reno years ago. Maybe, I hope, they are helpful.
  11. Well, my avatar is a hint on one of my interests, showing Neil Armstrong. What an achievement and what a great decade for humanity. Today (perfect timing!) I got a kit with exactly 1969 parts. 1969, you get it?
  12. Mark, thank you so much for those pictures! One never has enough pictures of this beautiful aircraft! Thank you!
  13. Being German I am not aware on a law about à la Revell. In my understanding it more simple: such a box, one-sided coated and printed, then folded up from a single sheet of card saves them money. No idea how much. A Euro Cent? But I am with most of us: I hate them!
  14. Such a great build! Like it! I already saved some stuff as reference for my own kit when being build!
  15. In Germany it´s verboten only from 11am to 16pm, in months ending with the letter "y"!
  16. A "Chris" build! Added to this the old, but still somehow magic Airfix kit! I am in!
  17. Lovely subtle shading and paint job on the cockpit parts, Rick! Hope you don´t spend too much time at the pool. The bench (and your fan crowd) is waiting!
  18. Jan, I guess you will ad the gun muzzles later after painting?
  19. Peter, for sure a thread not to be missed! I am in!!
  20. Tom, a beauty to look at! Love the whole build and the subtle detail, such as the faint traces of dirt on the main landing gear cover! Top!!!
  21. Wow! Great find! I am amazed about how good the remains look. Hope the Greek will do a fine job on restoring it!
