Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Revell Heinkel He-177 A-5 in markings of KG1. Painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics, photos by Wolfgang Rabel. Special thanks @Richard502 for donating the kit, and to @Han Solo for paint advice. The Revell kit was released 20 years ago. Compared to modern toolings, it has some shortcomings, such as poor transparencies and problematic fit on larger parts (wings and fuselage). The Revell kit is still a welcome replacement for the old Airfix model (from the 1960s). For the upper colors, I chose RLM02/RLM70. Decals are from Eagle Strike (72040), representing one of the last Heinkels in service. In autumn of 1944, Kampfgeschwader 1 was disbanded and fight personnel were sent to /JG 7, converting to the Messerschmitt Me 262 fighter jets. The He-177 is mostly displayed with anti-shipping rockets, I loaded my model more conventionally, using the six bombs provided in the Revell kit. The underside was painted RLM65. Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Vienna! Roman
