Room with a view indeed.
What floor are you on?

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

It's 6th floor with a 360° roof terrace. From the "workshop" I have a nice view to Cologne cathedral. This room was filled with an unused model railway for many years, so I (or better, my engineer) had to escape to the living room for model building. GF did not like it so much. So I had to free this room.

Thanks to the input of JayBee I upgraded the Islander a bit:



Looks better this way.

Lets start with something new. A modification to a Heinkel He 115:




As I had used the floats of this plane for my Canadair CL-87F "Firespotter" http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,41616.0.html, this He115 will be on wheels.

Therefore, the wings have to be prepared for the wheels:




The wheels will be taken from an Airfix Do215 model.

Well, this looks quite familiar to me....  ;D

Will be intersting to see your paint job for it.

What kit do you use? I have the very old Revel (original Matchbox) kit which is a bit different on the front (all transparent).
And you use different landing legs, mine have legs at each side of the wheel.

However, I now discovered something bad: The hull of my He 115 is bend to the left. If I look at it directly from the front, the tail fin is not completly upright, the whole backward part of the hull is twisted a bit to one side :(

And idea how to fix it?  Heat would work I think, but I fear this can even do more damage.

This looks like the old Revell kit (a FROG mold), not the Matchbox mold. The latter can be recognized thorugh the label "He 115 B/C", while the Frog mold only comes as a "He 115 C".

I have the Revell kit. I hate that nose glazing. This is my third attempt on fixing it to the fuselage without smearing glue all over it.
The first two were not in line with the rest of the fuselage.

My undercarriage comes from a Junkers Ju-188 (Guess where the He-115s floats are going......)

It will be finished in a scheme of a South American country (exact country not yet determined) as an export model.
Don't expect the finished build before the summer however. I have quite some builds going on at the moment.
I can only spray paint when the weather gets a bit better as I do it in an unheated shed in the garden.

I would try immersing it in hot water and the gently bending it the other way.

@TomZ: I just hate all those cockpit windows of this plane. I am sitting here masking it for years now.

Will try with hot water, the next days, wish me luck with it.... :)

@TomZ: Well hot water helped, the tail is now much morei nshape than before.

Almost all of the masking has been done now, so its close to go to the paint shop:


As the He 115 D will be a recon plane, a large pod has been added where the former bomb bay was:

The first paint is one now, plus several smaller parts are prepared to be used after camo painting is done:
