Building 1/72 kits of the German naval aviation pretty much oob is a kind of a hobby of mine (pun intended) compared to the 1/48 kits which get much more attention. Also, they go with my 1/144 German navy ships ....

 

Here's the collection so far:

 

Lets start with the biggest (and I noticed how big when putting it beside a 1/72 Lancaster that I build as a kid!!)

and the final one is admittingly a "what if" (by the time this bird was introduced, the navy had passed their jet aviation to the Luftwaffe )

As always, thanks for looking! (and please keep in mind, some of these kits were built like 30 years ago)

That is impressive collection! You don't happen to have any kind of group photo of them?

 

Very cool to have so many planes that are part of a bigger thing. I'm hoping to have similar collection one day - just on a different subject matter (Finnish Air Force).

(as to the previous post, after writing the @ reini I couldn't change the post anymore, or edit it or delete it ....)

Cool, Marineflieger are the best! I like the heavy weathering on the Tornado. 

In terms of what-if you are missing the F-35C. I think that is what they really dream of at the German Navy, probably embarked on somebody else's (or a European) carrier. Most likely just a dream.

@Adam Poultney

the kit is Revell Germany, the decals are leftovers...

 

@Doc72

I don't think we can afford the F 35. My guess ist that it's going to be between a modified Eurofighter or the F-18 - now that could be a Marineflieger again :)

Longterm it will be the FCAS (Future Combat Aircraft system) which could be anything, even a drone

Hello Step,

Very impressive collection. Always good to see the German Atlantic. This type served the Navy so well for so many years.

Regards, Dirk
