new 1/144 crew sets from NorthStar 07/52

Bild
Today I got an email with some really nice figure sets from the Ukrainian company NorthStar.

Here you can find a complete list off all new and existings sets. I can tell, that the quality is very good, I bought two years ago the Kriegsmarine sets and they are really very nice, I would compare them with the German Preiser sets. Shipping from the Ukraine took several weeks but no problems with customs.

Neue Figurensätze von NorthStar

Die Firma NorthStar hat jede Menge neue Figurensets im Maßstab 1/144 angekündigt.
Neben den bestehenden Sets für die Kriegsmarine gibt es jetzt auch moderne US Flugzeugträger Sets und auch was für die Royal Navy.
Alle Sets sind hier aufgelistet.
Ich habe vor zwei Jahren einige Sets direkt in der Ukraine bestellt und kann nur sagen, lief absolut reibungslos und die Figuren haben die gleiche Qualität wie die Figuren von Preiser.

Schienensicherungszug Blücher update 06/52

It is already several weeks ago, that I showed the blueprints from the Streckensicherungszug Blücher.
So it is time to finalize everything. I got the first prototype back from printing and found out, that it still needs a bit more love. Several details had to be optimized and I had to add some new stuff. With the turret of the Panzer IV I´m not 100 % satisfied, but at the moment I do not know how I could get him printed better. The painting is ongoing and the gun for the turret of the Russian T-70. This will be something you have to add later as well, it is such a small diameter, that I could never get it printed.

Bevor ich was Neues anfange, muss ich mal meine ganzen Altlasten fertig stellen. Der Streckensicherungszug Blücher ist eine davon. Ich habe den Prototypen bereits annähernd fertig angemalt, aber er muss doch nochmals überarbeitet werden, be…

new Büssing fire engine for Feuerschutzpolizei 05/52

Bild
After some really busy weeks I found this weekend again time to create something new. At the moment I work on the design for the Büssing KS 25. This an early German fire engine, called Kraftfahrspritze 25 or KS 25. The Germans used Mercedes, Magirus or Büssing for the cabin and frame. The rest of the body was always identical. During the war, this type saw several modifications. For example the lower storage boxes were a big problem, on ruined areas they limited the mobility of the engines. Therefore later they were taken away.
