Painting is done, so decals can be added before weathering it a bit.

Nowhat-if, butr something I wanted to build for quite a while - a Heeresflieger UH-1. A few of them are still flying in the Bundeswehr.

When i was a kid, I lived not so far away from a Luftwaffe airbase. Every moring, a UH-1 flew from the airbase to a SAR station (maybe a hospital, I don't know) and in the evening it flew back. So I saw those helicopters quite often - and it you did not see them, you could hear their characteristic sound.

So I wanted to build one of those - this is a 1/72 scale Revell kit build OOB:

I'm guessing he meant 1/72

Oh, yes, I can tell you its really some hard work to move it form one side of the house to the other... MY GF always dislikes that.


And i corrected the scale - 1/72.... :)

A small project now, a HobbyBoss F4F wildcat. I like those very simple kits despite the very few parts, the built models look not too bad.

This is what will be build:


This is in the box:


And the progrss so far:


Plan is to build it as a captured and reused aircraft.

I like how they put those kits in their boxes. Also bought s few of them a while ago, as they were really cheap.

The first colour is no on the Wildcat, ready to add the second:

From an environmental PoV there is far too much packaging in there.
However, I have to agree that the ones I have built have gone together well, are cheap and look good.

@zenrat: Yes, this kind of boxes have too much packaging material in it. The only advantage is that all parts are nicely stored in it.

Although I will keep the genral idea of my F4F, thanks to @Sport21ing I got a slightly different inspiration for it.

So, after adding some more color, it looks like this:
