I flew on the real aircraft back in 1994 and the Lufthansa crew really looked after us. I always wanted to do this one and bought the Italeri 1/72 kit as it came with the right markings and didn't have the hole for the upper fuselage gunner's position to fill and sort out the corrugations for! The kit goes together nicely and my intention was to leave the rear door open so I tacked it in place with a bit of PVA whilst painting and then found I couldn't get it open again..... I didn't want to damage the corrugations so have left it closed. Had to change the propellers for three-bladed ones, thanks to John Adams at Aeroclub for sorting those out for me, extend the centre engine cowling, modify all the exhausts and alter the layout of some windows to represent the Lufthansa aircraft. Painted with Halfords Nissan Silver and gloss black with a matt varnish over the silver to tone it down. No weathering as the real aircraft was spotless. Anyway here it is, comments/criticisms welcome. Steve
