Dornier 335 "Anteater" 1/48

Recommended Posts

Still trying to clear the bench but more models keep appearing ……:wacko:

This is the latest … The Tamiya Dornier 335, 2 seater. OOB, but the paint scheme is as it should be not as Tamiya say.

 

No real problems,; what you do realise is just how big it must have been in real life.  :analintruder:

I did manage to see the Smithsonian one up close and personal some years ago.  What an interesting development it could have been.

 

On to the pic's. Please feel free to comment etc.

Thanks for looking

They make a great looking pair! 

Have to admit it's a plane I know next to nothing about, will have to have a read up on it.

Lovely job on the pair, and an aircraft that I have numerous kits of yet to do :blush:

Nice!

I've often thought about a whiffer with a nose intake and over-under turbojets similar in arrangement to the EE Lightning. 🤔

Fantastic build. I must admit it is one of the kits I would like to build myself if I can get my hands on one.

Well I got my anteater the other day and was having a look at it last night. I could resist it.and before I new it I had most of the interior together. This really is an excellent easy kit. What colors did you use? I would like to follow your lead on this one. I take it the bottom is RLM76.

RLM 81/82 and natural metal for the undersides. Tamiya colours are wrong.

Thanks Dick. Natural metal might be an issue for me. I will have to think about it carefully. I have the upper colours so that won't be a problem. What metal paint did you use?

I have been using Vallejo and never seem to have success with it. I will enjoy doing the simple splinter pattern on this one it will give me a break from the complex Me 262 schemes.

Hi Greg,

In this case I used Humbrol 27001 flat aluminium with a gloss varnish mist over it for handling purposes. My other port of call is Tamiya flat aluminium. ( I do airbrush)
