Kaman K-Max (1:72) by ROTEX

finally I have finished this model. I got one of the first kits in 2013 from Attack Squadron but since I planned to build it in the colors of the Swiss operator Rotex Helicopter AG there was a little more work to do, e.g. drawing custom decals.

This is a resin kit which is somewhat difficult to handle compared to the ‚standard‘ plastic kits. And of course there are a few things that have to be changed to build exactly this model. More pictures of the model are on my flickr album.

flying the Blade 120SR

after these demanding last weeks I enjoyed flying the Blade 120SR again. I haven’t used it much during the last months but the accus are still ok.flugtrng-SR120-mai
On the following sunday I took the heli with me to Nussbaumen. It was a quite windy day but I decided to fly regardless. Sam has an even more demanding task: taking photos of the little heli.

orienteering in Dornbirn (at)

this weekend I accompanied Nadine to the Swiss Championship in sprint orienteering (SPM). This event has been organised together with the Austrian O-team in the small city of Dornbirn not far from the Swiss border.Nadine-SPM-blogen
Since I don’t do sprints in urban surroundings I used the opportunity to visit the competition area and take some photos as a spectactor.

F-107A (1:72) birthday present

what a surprise, Nadine and Alain gave me a model kit for my birthday. It is a kit from Trumpeter of the F-107A Ultra Sabre built by North American. Only three airplanes of this type were built. The Ultra Sabre was planned as the successor of the famous F-100 Super Sabre.

It was a good idea by them because this gives me some variety to my particular situation.
