Roland CII
« on: July 14, 2015, 08:30:28 AM »
Hi Guys,

Although not 'Completely' finished, I only have the rigging to go and a tidy up. Apologies for no
build log this time, but internet access has been intermittent, but soon to be resolved. This one
is going into a dioramma, but I thought you might like a wee taster.

Hope you are all good and staying fit a wealthy  ;)

Cheers

Dave

Truly lovely, Dave!  The taster is greatly appreciated.  Can't wait for the full course.
Cheers,
Bud

Four tries at getting a 'scumble' finish that sort of maybe looks right.
Also the internal framing inside was done 4 times. Devotion or just
plain madness?   :o

Little of both, I reckon.  ;) Either way, brilliant results.

I love it Dave!  ;D. Well done.  This is the scheme I have always associated with the Walfisch, and you have executed it perfectly.

Cheers & huzzas,

Bob

Dave,
    You've been very busy, I wondered where you were?! Nice to see you back at it and that you've not lost your touch. Very nice work, I like what you've done with the finish, absolutely outstanding Model! 8)

Should be done in 2 weeks. Then diaoramma, but I'll post some
pics before hand. Nice to be back in the fold.

This maybe the wrong place for these, but here is a potted build.

Notice the strips inside the fuselage are raised as they should be, not recessed.
