Hello everybody, Here are some photographs of the DoraWings MB.151C - 72nd scale I just completed : It really was kind of a new project for me as I actually know quite nothing about the aircraft, the French air Force and colours in WW2. It also was my first Dora Wings model. Fortunately I was able to find first rate information about camo colours and painting, detailling tips and building in issues 69 and 135 of the French WingMaster model magasine. The DoraWing model is sharp, well detailed, panel lines are thin and well defined and it looks accurate. It is a good basis for an OOB project, and that is what I did. On the other side, all parts need to be prepared and adjusted. Not much, just like 0.5mm. Cockpit floor, engine bulkhead, instrument panel etc... almost every part needs to be adjusted to fit. That is really a small bit but 0.5mm (0.02 in) each side of the cockpit floor translates into 1 mm overwidth and will prevent the fuselage from closing smoothly. Same with completed fuselage that will not fit between wings if wing fairing is not adjusted by the same small 0.5mm. In the end, that is nothing difficult - This is a very nice little kit and I do not expect any better MB.151 1/72 kit in the future. Below are a few photographs taken during the construction stages.
