Blohm und Voss BV.141


Recommended Posts

Well, I was talking to my mate Chris yesterday and the subject of the BV 141 came up, with Chris saying he'd quite like a 1:48 one, shame there isn't one.

Aha, I said, I think about 12 -15 years ago I built one. An HiPM kit if I remember correctly, It's in a box somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

So here is an 'oldie' from my collection, built somewhere around the year 2000. As I remember the cockpit 'nacelle' halves were moulded in clear plastic, and there was a fair bit of resin & etch in the kit.

So this is what I found, still undamged after all these years;

It's a big ol' bird, Fw-190 for comparison;

Odd looking thing isn't it :mental:

You clearly have a good storage technique! I remember the HiPM kit, from my "first time" as a modeller :)

Crew nacelle is chin-strokingly similar to a Fw189 centre-section

Yes Neil, but he's a good mate. :tease:

Well I was going to say what a great job you have done John and thank you for going to the trouble of digging this one out for my benefit. However!!!!!

Chris.

PS. It is an ugly looking thing.

Evening John

I'm not sure which is most impressive the model or the fact it has survived storage so well !

Really well finished, pity no one else has built this kit in the same size.

Cheers Pat
