Hi fellow Britmodellers,

 

this latest addition to my World War 2 Finnish AF collection and since the fighter force is almost completed (having the G.50 and H.75 in the paint shop), I focused my attention to the bombers. The ICM kit is well detailed and went together fairly quickly without major troubles. I used OWL conversion to Z-3 version, which featured the extended ("potty") camera cover and decal sheet for DN-64 from LeLv 46 from around January 1943. Photos show the card emblem being painted on both side of the nose, so I had to source the second one from my spares as it was omitted on the decal sheet. Painted freehand with Gunze Aqueous and kept the weathering to minimum as she looks on period pictures in almost pristine condition.

 

Cheers

Libor

Beautiful job !  This paint scheme really suites this lovely aircraft very well.

I also like the subtle weathering.

Libor,

another beautiful model from your factory!

That winter camoflage looks very nice.

As mentioned by Winenut one of the underside swastikas is slightly out of line.

A minor slip-up though, that does not distract from the overall quality!

Looking forward to your G-50 in Finish colors.

Thanks for comments mates! Have to correct that roundel, it somehow slipped under my radar, got a set of spare roundels.

 

cheers

Libor,

 

Outstanding build! Perfect winter camouflage and weathering, too. My very favorite WW2 air force, too! Looks like the ICM Dorniers are the ones to get in 1/72! Well done!

Very nice! I think the DN-64 was the last plane acting in Lapland War...Scrapped in 1952!

Good job!

I'm building the Z-10 at the moment and I've found it good to build apart from the nacelles, which didn't go together so well. I'd say apart from the nacelles it's a better kit than the recent Airfix Do17Z-2. I also have the Do215B-4, hopefully with the different engines, the nacelles won't be so bad.

 

thanks

Mike

Right Jerzy, with 486.50 flying hours the most active machine amongst Finnish Dorniers.

I agree Mike, the nacelles seem to be little bit over engineered with an odd assembly sequence . Anyway, I would rate this kit higher than the Airfix kit also for variety of available versions. Good luck with 215B-4!

Very nice indeed.

I built the same one from the 1/48 ICM kit and used the SBS decal sheet, it is a great scheme and you have done a fantastic job on it.

I follow the SBS sheets too, they are of fantastic quality and makes really good job on covering the Finnish subjects.

 

Cheers

I'd quite like them to tackle the Do217, there's plenty of Do217 variants for them to have a go at!

 

thanks

Let's hope for it, Do 217 would definitely deserve a new tooling!

I think they are due to release a Do-217N-1 later this year.
