I really like those decals!  Where did you get them, and how can I get lots of them?  :)

Well, made them myself. Searched the web for something I could use. Then printed them on decal paper, sealed them and could use them like any other decals.
Only problem was that I needed decal paper with white background, so I had to cut them out carefully.  Only the dragon on the tail was printed on transparent decal paper.

I was afraid of that - I don't have the right kind of printer to make decals.  I tried once, and ... well, let's just say it didn't work.  :)

Re: NöNö Bärs What-If Flugwerft (Completed: Air Aran BN Islander)

Whiel the F16 waits for the final work, here is another finisched model.

In 2014, we spend our summer vacation in Ireland. There, we made a day trip to the Aran islands, it takes you about one hour by boat or 7 minutes by plane. So we took the plane, a BN Islander.

I rebuild the one (correct registration etc.) that we used for this flight. The model is a 1/72 scale old Airfix kit. As it is a bit too tail heavy (not enough weight in the nose), I had to add a little helper in the back of the plane.

In the RW both the Islander and the Trilander had a removeable strut that fitted into a hole in the tail bumper. It was the ground crew's responsiblity to make sure this was in place, or removed, as required.
It was not often needed with the Islander, but the Trilander was another matter. The ground crew had to make sure that the strut was in place before the pilot got out!.
This photo shows the strut fitted to a Trilander, however in this case it looks like it was fitted into the side of the fuselage. I have only ever seen it used with an Islander.

Nice build.
I butchered one of these when a youth.

The aircraft I did my one parachute jump from was an Islander.

Something completly different now....

With some huge effort, my engineer finally updated the workingspace of the Flugwerft (and the Schiffswerft as well). After freeing some space, he could now move all model building stuff into its own place, which largly increased the WAF as he did not had to work i the living room anymore.  ;D

So here is his new working space:




The 3D Printer:


Control monitor for the prints (which can take quite some time). I used an old HP Touchpad for it where i have installed Android besides the original webOS.

Room with a view ! That looks great. Let's get a close up of the train display. That's something I've always wanted to do.

Well, until last week, there was a model railroad (N-gauge) in this room. As I have not worked on it for years now, I have put it in the storage cellar and set up everything for scale building. Ahm, of course my engineer did all this....

And the view is nice, can see the Cologne Cathedral from there :)

Well, actually I now noticed that the engineer is a she. My GF insisted that it is one. So she (the engineer) does not like to travel so much, because she must always think so much what to build next and how to do it.....  ;D ;D ;D
