Hello! :)

This is Revell's re-issue of their Heinkel HE219, with new parts to make it as the earlier A-0.

Built virtually out of the box, except for some Eduard etched seat belts.

I used Xtracolor enamels for the camouflage.

Straight forward kit, no real pitfalls, but it needs a lot of nose weight to keep it off it's tail!

That's a real stunner with a particularly impressive paint job.

Is this the 1/32 kit?

Angelo, that is the Best He219 model I have seen with one of the most convincing cockpits I have seen too.

 

Fantastic.

Impressive, you have made a great job of that, and I know what you mean about nose weights I was forever adding it to mine.

 

Cheers

It's gorgeous. I love the He219.

1/32, I can only imagine the size of this kit, and how awesome it is. 

Just bend that antenna wire a little so it can be pristine done.

Oh wow, that's very impressive indeed.  So much detail, and your finishing looks spot-on to my eye.

Well done 

Cheers

Superb, I admire your paint job -

replicating all those tiny blotches without making a horrible mess is really an achievement.

I've tried myself on such a scheme before ... and failed miserably ...

Best greetings from Vienna!

Great work! :clap:

Are the mottles made by freehand?

 

Thank you.

 

Yes they are.

I thinned the paint right down to a milk like consistency then turned the compressor down to 15psi, and practiced loads on card before I slowly started.

It took about an hour and a bit to do the mottles.

The base colour was sealed with an acrylic varnish before the mottles were added.

As I used Xtracolor enamels, if there  were any "OOPS" moments, it could be cleaned with a cotton bud and thinners.:D
