Here are the finished photos of my most recent build, Tamiya's venerable He-219. Following the clear coat to protect the paintwork, an oil panel line wash of dark drown on the upper surfaces, and light brown on the underside was added. The excess was wiped off and the model was sealed with a semi-gloss coat prior to attaching the gear, props, fiddly parts. Chipping was added using grey paint and prismacolour pencil, and exhaust staining, fuel leaks etc were added using various Mig and Vallejo products. Finally the FuG radio masts and antennae rigging were attached and navigation lights added using Krystal Klear. At 24 years young, this kit was a pleasure to construct and didn't fight me one inch. A real testament to the engineers at Tamiya! Thanks for viewing. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FYVSZMhb11qbtXnaA
Hello all... Here is my entry in this group build. Dragons 1/72nd Heinkel He-219-0 UHU. I have posted a link from scalemates for now. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/dragon-5005-he-219a-0-uhu--106305# Once i get the chance later tonight. I will actually photograph the box and contents. With the obligatory sprue shots. Dennis
Pictures coming soon, but I am now equipped with a Zoukei Mura Uhu, some groovy turned brass aerials, and a couple of books on the subject... Kagero's volume 2 monograph is amazing. I'm also waiting on some Radu Brinzan seat belts, aeroscale cockpit placards, and considering some Miracle Masks. So much for my philosophy of 'If it costs THAT much, it won't need any aftermarket.'. Cripes, it is (a) big, and ( complicated... but you already knew that, right? I'm conservatively estimating 9 months, forcing myself to go slow to do the best job I can. Wish me luck...
Heinkel He-219 Uhu Vol2 Kagero Monograph Following on from the first volume reviewed by mike HERE Kagero have released volume 2. This book is full of amazingly detailed 3D renderings on top of the very interesting history of the type in Luftwaffe service, including some great photographs from WWII of a fair number of aircraft, many in various states of disrepair or destruction. This section covers the first thirty one pages of the book and shows a variety of different camouflage schemes used on the type. The next sixty eight pages really concentrates on the equipment used in the 219 and the methods of construction of sections of the aircraft. These drawings are beautifully done with some superb detail that could very well be incorporated into a model, particularly in one of the big 1:32 machines. Talking of which, Kagero have also included a superb set of plans on a double sided A1 sheet. All the plan drawings are in 1:32, with the small exception of the gun sight which has been drawn in 1:8 scale. Conclusion This book on its own is a must buy for all those interested in either the Luftwaffe in general or the He-219 in particular, but when put together with Vol 1 this makes it a spectacularly interesting and useful set. For the modeller, the details shown in the 3D renderings would be so very handy to get all those little details right when building their masterpiece. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
