    An impressive beast, and I love the colors. I'm also regularly stunned by what people can achieve with a brush.

    That's an incredibly cool build and kit! 


    Thank you all very much 😊!



  2. Here is my latest kit, finished this past weekend after just over 2 months. It's Anigrand Craftswork's 1:144 Blohm & Voss Bv 222 V7 Wiking.



    This was the seventh prototype but the first of the C-series with diesel-powered Jumo 207C inline engines. It's first flight was on 1 April, 1943 and it was scuttled by its crew at the end of the war.


    This resin kit was built mostly OOB. I opened up the porthole-type windows which were represented as panel lines and filled them with Kristal Klear. I strengthened the join at the wing roots making a spar through the fuselage in front of the tab and using screws as rods behind. I also added some details in the cockpit, correcting the seats and making the steering wheels, although little can be seen! Other details added were the wingtip lights (Kristal Klear drops) and the radio wires (stretched sprue). The base/cradle was made from bits and rods of wood I had. The kit was fully painted and varnished with brush.




    Thanks for looking and, as usual, all comments are welcome.

    Wow. Superb. Amazing. Stunning. Fantastic. Brilliant. Impressive. Outstanding. 

    I couldn't decide which word to use, so you can have the lot!!!!

    It's been many, many years since I have built this lovely little model from Airfix, but Miguel, my friend, you have taken it to another level.

    Your hand painting is a sight to behold.

    Well done.

    You had the courage (and, clearly, ability) to brush-paint that lozenge camo, but not to try rigging? I know which of the two I would find easier! 


    Superb result.

    Magnificent results Miguel.

    I'm with you, rigging is a skill set I have not even begun to master. The thought of rigging even a Dr1 in any scale scares me.

    How did you do those wonderful rib tapes?

    They were painted freehand! Really!! If you look closer you'll see they are uneven.

    Outstanding effort on the painted lozenge. I cheated and used Aviattic decals on mine.




    Many thanks to everyone. I really only have time to check the forum properly on weekends and this "revival" has been a surprise this morning. Despite the kit's age, I think it stands up well and can be made into a decent replica the real hurdle being the overall lozenge scheme used often on this plane. Isn't it odd how some kits that are partially targeted at a young or beginner level often have the hardest paint scheme options of the type depicted?
