Gentlemen. If you'll allow I'd like to share my current WIP with you.

I've decided to start 2015 with a build that's a bit more ambitious than I'm used to. I was getting to the point where I felt like I needed to try a ZM kit. I thought for sure it was going to be the Horten, but a lot of WIPs of those have popped up around the web. On top of that, I had wanted to do the Revell Uhu last year, but opted for something else. Anyway, I wound up with this kit after the holidays, so here I am.

This is a massive undertaking, and it would be easy for my obsessiveness and ADD to make things messy, so my approach will be to address each portion of the instructions as a kit of it's own. So updates will be a major milestones in that vain.

First the engines. I won't really detail the process of finishing and weathering, but any questions anyone may have will be answered.

I still need to get a clear coat on these and add some washes, filters, etc. So these aren't complete, but close.

Stunning paintwork and the engines look superb. What references are you using? I've never seen the red/blue pipework before. Is that specific to the He 219)

I'm just following the ZM instructions on that....along with a couple of builds I've found. I'm not really a "reference" guy. :)

Ok, everyone. I completely forgot I started this WIP here. :( Sorry...it's a lot to keep up with multiple forums, Facebook, etc, and find time to actually work on these things.

I finished the engines up. They are weathered with products from Ammo by Mig (again I love that stuff beyond belief).

After those were done work moved to the cockpit. Ammo Airfield Dust set used here. Some Eduard belts, but the rest is OOB.

Then moved on to aft fuselage assemblies. I get asked sometimes "why waste time if it won't be seen?" Well, it's not a waste of time for me. I paid for the kit, so I don't mind getting the extra mileage out of doing these parts up. Also, I'll always have the photos as proof it's there. :D

Lovely - I think If I bought a kit like that I'd be terrified to start in case I screwed up!!

By all means it seems to be a fabulous kit. I am happy that I am no more to the Luftwaffe. But you seem to be able to serve it well.
