  1. Minion's Finnish-ed pencil

    Having given the stash a good staring at and having had a look through other peoples proposed builds and not wanting to duplicate others choices I have plumped for an aircraft I have liked for a long time, Dornier's classic Do-17Z, known as the "flying pencil" due to it's very thin fuselage. Although the Do-17Z was the version used by the Luftwaffe during the early phases of WWII it was rapidly replaced by more modern and capable aircraft such as the Ju-88 not long after the invasion of the Soviet Union, but for my build I will not be doing a Luftwaffe bird. I have long had an interest in the exploits of the Finnish Air Force during both the "Winter War" of 1939-40 and the "Continuation War" as Finland's involvement in WWII is known and have wanted to build a Finnish aircraft for a while and this GB has given me the ideal opportunity to build one it's aircraft, especially as the Scandinavian GB didn't get voted in. For my build I will be using ICM's recently released 1/48 kit of the DO-17Z which I will build pretty much OOTB. Here is a picture of the box lid. And the contents of the box, still sealed in the plastic bags. As I am not building a Luftwaffe example which is all that comes in the box (apart from a Croat flown one which has mostly Luftwaffe markings) I will be using an aftermarket decal sheet by SBS Models which has markings for 4 aircraft from the Finnish Air Force. And never being able to resist a winter camo scheme here is the scheme I have chosen. As I have roughly zero information on the DO-17 and it's use in Finland I will be building it as it comes so any useful help will be gratefully received, as will all your comments and criticisms during my build. Thanks for looking in. Craig.
  2. Article on the BBC about the impending raising of the Dornier Do-17 they've found on the sea bed. I'm so going to have to make a special trip to see it when they're done. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22380915 Is it too much to hope that this might spur on a related kit and new tooling from someone?
