Dornier Do335A Pfeil with Kettenkraftrad - Tamiya 1/48

Recommended Posts

Hello all

Some pics from my most recent completed build - Tamiya's Dornier 335 in 1/48. Another superbly engineered kit that goes together like a dream, and they even supply a shaped nose weight, which was a nice touch. This kit also comes with the little towing tractor, which also slots together beautifully. A joy to build from start to finish.

Built out of the box other than a Montex canopy mask. Splinter camo was done in RLM81/82 Gunze / Mr Hobby acrylics, and Tamiya acrylics for the rest. I went for minimal weathering (just a panel line wash and some exhaust stains) as the Pfeil was a very late entrant to WWII and saw limited service before the end of hostilities.

Thanks for looking.

Adam

One of my favorite WW2 German plane!

Very nice work in this beast.

I've got an A-12 variant from Tamiya ready to jump out of the box soon.

What an amazing nodel! It looks suberb. The painting and weathering looks absolute realsitic! The little Krad is also very nice!

All and all a very superb presentation!
